The One X is HTC's "Goldie Locks"; Not too big, not too small... just right. 


Falling somewhere between the lower end HTC One S and the more luxurious HTC One X+, the HTC One X finds that perfect "sweet spot."

The HTC One X is a 4.7-inch display and has a slim 8.9mm. 1.5GHz quad core processor, up to 32GB of storage and an 8-megapixel camera with full HD video recording. 

With Beats Audio installed, the HTC One X packs an impressive punch. Other features include a simple desktop dock that holds the HTC One X horizontally and a set of car accessories that includes a dash mounted dock, a screen-visor-mounted Bluetooth mic/speaker and wireless receiver to plug into your stereo for playing back your music. 

As always, we at tawkon want to take a look beyond the regular review points and focus on what our users are most concerned about; radiation. 

tawkon allows you to monitor your exposure to electromagnetic waves emitted by your smartphone, as well as monitor the exposure of your family and friends. When radiation from your phone spikes, you will receive an alert that your exposure is too high as well as tips on how to minimize it.

While the HTC One X is a wildly popular phone, mostly because of it's great features and sleek looks, the amount of radiation that it emitts is an issue that is of greater importance to us. 

All Phones in the United States and Europe must be qualified/certified by a regulatory body before being sold in the market. In the United States this body is the FCC and their maximum SAR value allowed is 1.6 W/kg. 

We have done several studies on the SAR values of various new and popular phones.

Below is a list of the top ten most popular phones and their corresponding SAR ratings.

Position Device SAR (in W/Kg)
1 Samsung Galaxy Note II 0.171 W/Kg
2 Samsung Galaxy Note 0.209 W/Kg
3 Samsung Galaxy Nexus 0.303 W/Kg
4 Samsung Galaxy S3 0.342 W/Kg
5 Google/LG Nexus 4 0.550 W/Kg
6 HTC One S 0.687 W/Kg
7 HTC One X 0.600 W/Kg
8 Samsung Galaxy Ace 0.840 W/Kg
9 Apple iPhone 5 0.901 W/Kg
10 Blackberry Z10 0.970 W/Kg


The HTC One X's SAR, much like the lower end One S, falls nearly smack in the middle of the pack.  In addition to its sleek features and impressive audio capabilties, the HTC One X's SAR rating make it an excellent choice for a phone that has great features and low radiation.
