• It gets really hot. Yesterday I put the phone in my pants, took my pants off (don’t ask), then put my pants back on again, and noticed — not for the first time — how incredibly hot this phone gets even when it’s sitting idle. Play a game on this sucker, and forget about it: wear gloves or something. It’s not just me, right?
• It pocket dials all the wrong people. The screen is big; the screen is sensitive — two good things when slicing people in half in Samurai II: Vengeance. But I carry the One X in my front pocket of my jeans, and on more than one occasion, the phone has dialled 000 without my fingers ever touching it. The culprit is almost certainly that giant “emergency call” button on the lock screen. This happen to anyone else? (Note: If it does, please stay on the line and tell the 000 operator that you dialled in error.)
On The Plus Side
• Still draws a lot of lustful glances and “what phone is that?” comments, if that’s something that matters to you. (It matters to me.)
OK, I’m done. How about you guys? Own a One X? What’s your experience with the phone? Let us know in the comments below.
