HTC canceled bigger battery plans for thinner phones

Would you rather have a larger phone with a bigger battery that lasts forever? Or a thin, sleek and sexy phone? This was HTC's question and apparently they decided to shelf the bigger battery plans to compete with the DROID RAZR MAXX and opted for a mild upgrade to the battery. This will enabled them to produce the thin and awesome phones like what we are seeing today in the HTC One X and One S.

HTC One X software mod grants up to 20% better battery

The HTC One X is pretty great, but its 1800mAh battery (not unlike the one on the Galaxy Nexus) is only OK. It turns out that HTC itself made something of an error in judgement when putting together that shiny new software. Due to an errant APK location, the native NVIDIA power control app (you know, the thing that makes that magical "5th core" work to save all that battery life) wasn't working properly. HTC should have a fix out soon enough, but in the meantime, the fellows at XDA have a fix for you.

AT&T HTC One X shows its dual-core power in benchmarks

In case you haven't been following along with the HTC One series of smartphones. They have two different models of the new top-tier phone. The HTC One X features a 4.7-inch display and some impressive specs. The difference here is the international model available now (and reviewed here) has the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core, while the AT&T model benchmarked today has a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz dual-core instead. We've tested both platforms already but check out these latest results below.

HTC One X takes a skydive to show off camera

When business types instruct their marketing team to "go the extra mile", they're usually figuratively referring to a lateral mile - not a 2-mile vertical freefall. But in HTC's case, the latter is more appropriate: to demonstrate the fidelity and speed of the 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera on the HTC One X (which we noted ourselves in the review), they set up a skydiving fashion shoot, complete with photographer, model and lighting crew. The results are interesting to say the least. Here's the setup: student fashion photographer and skydiving rookie Nick Jojola was instructed to capture a photo (while taking video) of model and expert skydiver Roberta Mancino with the HTC One X. He's joined by a safety diver (the guy who's tethered to him) two divers streaming smoke and two with a pair of high-powered lights. Roberta is wearing a high-fashion skydiving suit created especially for the shoot - that's the thing that looks like a buzzard after it's gone though a Cessna windshield. The team had only 50 seconds of operating time before they had to deploy their parachutes. They arranged themselves in a formation of three vertical rows: the two streamers on the bottom, Nick and his safety diver in the middle with the HTC One X, and the lighting team and Roberta on top. When Nick was in position Roberta assumed a head-first position and dived for the shot. It took two goes, but the results speak for themselves: [youtube dwGGdM3Nj08] Publicity stunt? Certainly. Cool? Absolutely. While you're not likely to need split-second shutter speed in your everyday travels (most of which are somewhat closer to sea level) the shoot illustrates the fast response of the One series camera rather well. HTC hasn't posted the full commercial yet, but it'll probably be showing up on European TV sets in the next few weeks. Here's a making-of just for fun: [youtube QHLy4xB8vSY] [timeline] [device id=2325] [via Phandroid]
