HTC One series starts Qualcomm / NVIDIA battery wars

HTC One series starts Qualcomm / NVIDIA battery wars

This week we're getting our first look at the smartphone-based next-generation processors of two giants (Qualcomm and NVIDIA) as they sit on the HTC One series reviewed earlier today. What we're seeing is that not only are both of these chipmakers bringing heat to the processing world, they've begun a true war on battery conservation. The HTC One X smartphone contains NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor with an extra core for low-powered tasks and sleeping, while the HTC One S contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, made also to keep itself conservative when it comes to draining your power.

HTC One X Review

HTC One X Review

HTC needed to hit reset on its smartphone strategy. Lulled, perhaps, by several years of leading the Android device market, 2011 brought an incredibly strong push by Samsung and a growing mismatch between the agile software users desired and the bloated, over-stylized interface of HTC Sense. The HTC One X - and the One Series it leads - is the first of the company's attempt to reclaim its former position, a Tegra 3 toting powerhouse with a big screen, boastful camera and slick design. Still with the specter of the Samsung Galaxy S III on the near horizon, not to mention Apple's iPhone 5, the One X needs to do more than storm the spec sheet if it's to make the impact HTC requires. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

AT&T HTC One X screams through benchmarks

AT&T HTC One X screams through benchmarks

Back at MWC 2012, it was revealed that only the European version of the HTC One X would be privy to NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chip, while the American version destined for AT&T would instead be fitted with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor. Those of you worried that a mere dual-core would be unable to compete with the might of a quad-core need not worry, as benchmarks have been performed on an AT&T HTC One X that made its way into the wild.

28nm production halt could delay Snapdragon S4 products

28nm production halt could delay Snapdragon S4 products

Qualcomm have so far avoided chasing cores, saying that Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip is “overkill”. Instead the company is hoping that the latest version of its Snapdragon chip, the S4 “Krait”, will provide enough performance with just two cores. While development platforms have gone out to various publications and developers for testing, the 28nm chip could be facing production delays, which would have a knock-on effect on phones like the HTC One X and One S.

AT&T’s HTC One X lost the Tegra 3 due to LTE incompatibility

AT&T’s HTC One X lost the Tegra 3 due to LTE incompatibility

Android enthusiasts have been drooling over the HTC One X for months, ever since it was leaked as the HTC Edge. A lot of that had to do with the inclusion of Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 platform; at the time, it was the only smartphone we knew of that would get the screaming silicon. So it's no surprise that AT&T customers were a little miffed to hear that the American version is going with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU instead. But before you start a signature campaign to bring the "real" one X to AT&T, you might want to read this: it was purely a technical limitation.

HTC Mobile World Congress wrap-up

HTC Mobile World Congress wrap-up

LG and Samsung have been dropping pre-Mobile World Congress hints all of last week, but it would be hard to argue against the fact that HTC has owned the opening night of Mobile World Congress. Their three-pronged HTC One line isn't just a new series of phones, it's a dividing line for the the company, signifying the beginning of a more centralized strategy and (hopefully) a clean break from their rather disappointing second half of 2011. They're hitting the high, middle and low end of the smartphone market with three extremely targeted models, all sharing the same design DNA. Naturally, SlashGear was there to cover it all.

Has HTC redeemed itself?

Has HTC redeemed itself?

HTC had a lot to prove at Mobile World Congress, and the first signs are promising. The HTC One X, One S and One V are each distinctive and thoughtful designs, with none of the embarrassed "me too" shuffling many of the company's 2011 phones suffered. "It's a new HTC" UK head of marketing James Atkins told us in a pre-MWC briefing with the new One Series handsets last week. "We asked ourselves, what can we do to engage with consumers?"
