I don't see their reasoning on releasing this device. The US One X is faster than the Tegra 3 version in the first place. The Snapdragon S4 beats the pants off of the Tegra 3 in all of the benchmarks. Even with the speed boost of the One X+ it still can't beat the GS3. The Tegra 3 just isn't capable of doing it. I don't see this device selling very well, actually I don't see any of HTC's devices doing very well anymore. The One series is their flagship series and it hasn't gained a significant market hold yet, now the One series is almost a year old and they definitely aren't going to pick up any momentum now. HTC isn't Samsung and their sales really do show for that. They would've been better off putting a Snapdragon S4 pro in this and giving it 2gb of ram and releasing it with multile colors, then they may have sold a few of them. With the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note 2, and the iPhone 5, this phone offers nothing competitive or unique to the game. This was a half-baked release, and will have half-baked sales. HTC, you are constantly losing money, releasing the same product with a very minimum spec bump 8 months after the original release with no new features is not the right way to gain customers or regain any of your lost profits. What is HTC thinking? How does this make any since?
