That just implies that people are in inferior for not liking it.

What about those of us who see the Metro UI's appeal IF you have a touchscreen device/monitor but simply feel its appeal is lost if you are using a mouse/keyboard...

I mean its not bad, But for my desktop id simply rather forgo the Metro and keep my Win 8 like Win 7 except slimmer leaner and faster... It just works better with the input method i use for my desktop to me

Also i personally dislike it on the 360, I think the 360's implementation is confusing and awkward to navigate and i think the previous 360 interface was better

For a tablet or a phone however, its nice...

HTC One X smile.gif

Battery life is all ROM relevant. The HTC One X will be a popular device so I can assume some battery saving ROM's will be made for it. You probably think that if it's a battery saving ROM then it'll be slow? nope.

I have a Galaxy SII and when I run CriskeloROM I can get 2 days of HEAVY use out of my phone, it's truly amazing. I go to work at 8am and by 12-1 I still have 95%+ Battery life after tonnes of texts, e-mails, remote control sessions, etc.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ROM! With stock ICS on my SGSII (CM9) I get about 10-12 hours.... WAY less than the other ROM.

If you don't like the note I would def go with the Galaxy S II. The battery life is great and it has an Exynos chip which means it will be blazing fast also.

Sorry but I cannot support your decision on the SGSII. It's a year old phone now... the HTC One X is a much better phone...better screen, build quality, camera, specs, audio, etc. (the SGSII audio is ATROCIOUS)

I still love my phone but it lacks that new feeling smile.gif

I'm due to buy a new phone -- my Atrix 2 died on me and store credit is where its at.

Wondering .. should I buy now or wait -- and that's a maximum of 2 months for some new 28nm phones ?? But the problem being there's frankly nothing in my budget right now other than another A 2 and that's not appealing enough.

SGS II skyrocket any better than the the original SGS II ?? There's also a G version that's toned down , and cheaper. Wondering if its worth it , really >?

SG Nexus vs the ONE S . I suppose its a no brainer , right ?

QFT, I have an HTC One X and it reminds me of the original Desire really, that's how good it is. If you want some unbiased reviews, check out techradar and phonedog.
