HTC One VX first look

We take a look at the HTC One VX for AT&T and see if this budget Android phone stands out from the crowd

The HTC One VX is the little brother to the One X+ and this Android handset is aimed at those looking for a great smartphone on a budget ($49.99 on a contract). 

The HTC One VX has the look and feel that's become familiar from HTC: clean face, sleek curves and a really nice in-hand feel. It's not quite as premium of a feeling as the One X+ or the 8X but it's not bad. 

The specs are definitely middle of the road but nowadays, that still means a 4.5-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4G LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and expandable memory up to 32GB. Again, it's quite a powerful phone for the price. 

We'll have a review for you shortly, but right off the bat I can tell you there are a few things that I'm concerned about. The overall build quality looks nice from afar but once you hold it for a while, you can start to feel some creaking. 

Additionally, I do wish that this launched with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean instead of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The 5-megapixel camera does take shots very, very quickly but I'm not certain the photos themselves are turning out to be amazing. We'll see, though.
