Difference between HTC First and HTC One X

Key difference: HTC First is the first phone that will be released running on the Facebook Home user interface. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon 400 1.4 GHz Dual-core Krait and a 1 GB of RAM. The HTC One X is a popular product of the HTC Corporation. It comes with Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is upgradable to v4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

In today’s world, social networking is more important that air of water. Some people might be able to get through without food, but not without checking their Facebook accounts at least a few times during the day. Facebook realizing the important part it plays in people’s social lives and recognizing the need for Facebook integration on mobile phones, has collaborated with HTC for new Facebook phone: the HTC First.

HTC First is the first phone that will be released running on the Facebook Home user interface. This isn’t the first time that HTC and Facebook have collaborated. HTC has previously launched the ChaCha, Status, and Salsa, all of which had special Facebook integration, beyond the normal app. However, the HTC First will be the first to actually have a user interface (UI) based on Facebook.

The Facebook Home UI will consist of Cover Feed which will use the home screen and lock screen to show content posted by friends on Facebook, as well as notifications from other apps. It also has an overlay over any and all apps, which allow users the ability to message others via Facebook or SMS, without leaving the app. The lock icon on the lock screen will show the profile picture of the user.

The HTC First also offers the users the ability to turn off the Facebook Home UI, in case they choose to. When Facebook Home is disabled, the phone will revert to stock Android, in this case Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The phone will also be the first smartphone to include Instagram, recently-acquired by Facebook, as a pre-loaded app.

The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon 400 1.4 GHz Dual-core Krait and a 1 GB of RAM. The phone will come with as in-built memory of 16 GB and no external memory. The phone also has an embedded Li-Po 2000 mAh battery.

The phone has a 4.3 inch Super LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The primary camera on the phone is a 5 MP with BSI sensor and a 1.6 MP front-facing secondary camera, also with BSI sensor.

One of the range of popular products of HTC is the HTC One Series. These included HTC One X, HTC One X+, HTC One V, etc. One of the most popular ones of these is the HTC One X.

The HTC One X features a 4.7-inch super LCD 2 with 1280 x 720 (HD, 720p) and Corning Gorilla Glass. The HTC comes with Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is upgradable to v4.1.1 Jelly Bean. When the HTC One X was launched it was the first phone to be offered with a quad-core processor among the HTC smart phones, making it the fastest HTC phone to date. It includes a 1.5 GHz, quad-core (global version) and 1.5 GHz, dual-core LTE version (USA and selected countries) along with ULP GeForce GPU and 1GB RAM. The phone is offered with non-expandable, 16 or 32 GB internal storage capacity. It offers an 8 MP camera with auto focus, smart LED flash, and BSI sensor, along with a 1.3 MP, 720p secondary camera.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the HTC website, theverge.com and GSMArena.com.
