The new HTC One X+ has landed on the SlashGear test bench, and with HTC so especially proud of the performance tune-up its given its Android flagship, we were keen to see how it fared.

Is HTC finally making Sense?

After its annus horribilis of 2011, HTC's year is looking considerably better. A solid reception to the One series and a potentially key deal to be the face of Windows Phone 8 - seized right under Nokia's nose, no less - is the dressing around hardware that is finally compelling: attractive, competitively priced, not embarrassed in specifications.

The words relayed back then made it seem as though HTC would be going Apple's way with a strategy that focused on a single phone - or perhaps a small collection of phones - that would be supported in ways that simply are not allowed by a strategy that includes phone after phone released in tight succession.
