Jet Li starred in a 2001 movie called “The One.” In it, his character traveled to parallel universes and grew stronger as he killed alternate versions of himself. This continued on until there was only one other copy left, with the movie culminating in an epic battle between the two. We won’t spoil the ending, but we were reminded of this movie when thinking about the One X and the One S: both are incredibly powerful phones that we’d be proud to use as our daily drivers, but the vast majority of us are only able to choose one One. (The One V is also a possible option but for the purposes of this feature we’re laser-focused on HTC’s two higher-end models.)
How can we make a sound decision? The two phones are considered premium devices with top-notch components and relatively few flaws. The major difference, however, is going to be the price. Naturally, the cost will vary depending on where you live and which carrier you choose, but make no mistake: the S is going to be less expensive. Is it worth spending the extra money to go with the top-shelf model, or will the little guy be plenty? Now that the two devices are officially on sale in Europe, it’s time to pick a side. We can’t decide for you, but our goal is to present each phone’s pros and cons, going round by round. Which one is right for you? Read on to find out.
