The screen has excellent resolution and shows sharp and crisp clear photos and videos. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 that keeps it from getting minor day-to-day scratches. The device is sleek and thin in general, but has put on a little extra weight (5 grams) compared to the original One X. The phone is covered in a soft-touch polycarbonate plastic chassis that has smooth curved corners. The soft matte plastic makes it easy to grip the phone and keeps it from slipping through the fingers. The phone comes incorporated with the HTC Sense UI v4+, which is basically a combination of the HTC Sense and Jelly Bean. The combination of the two provides additional features such as: Google Now, Voice search, faster screen navigation, new gallery app (organizes photos by events and location) and HTC Get Started (allows PC to configure the phone faster).

The Smart Flash provides five levels of flash that adjust automatically when trying to take a shot, while the Sightseeing mode allows the camera to be handy during outings, so that it can be easily accessible.

The device houses a non-removable 2100 mAh Lithium-ion Polymer battery, which according to tests by many review website, dies pretty quickly. When fully-working the battery does not even last a whole day. However, no official data has been released by the company regarding the Talk-time and the Stand-by time. The company has also added the Beats Audio sound enhancement to its speakers as well as headset and it can be turned on and off by the user. The phone has been a popular hit with many that require a good sturdy budgeted phone with an excellent camera.
