what phone would you upgrade to

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i have an htc one X and this guy wants to buy it for 350$ which is ridiculous since i bought it for 50$ at the time because radioshak messed up pricing haha. anyway !

if i were to sell it what phone would i realistically upgrade to. this phone pretty much has the best camera and im not trying to get into some cell contract. a gs3 is on par with this phone and i dont know any other pne thats a real upgrade. a nexus 4 is sold out and ships in 5 weeks anyway lol. any recommendations ?

The Onex is already top of the line, so there is no point in upgrading. If you bought it on a contract for $50, then you aren't making much by selling it for $350 since the subsidized price is made up for in the monthly payments. If you bought it off contract for $50 then you are making a good amount of money. I would just keep the phone though.

The nexus 4 would be an upgrade as far as raw performance, but not the camera.

In all honesty, the One X is still a great phone. If you want change phones then yeah, sell it and get something else.

Is the $350 the price range of the phones you have to choose from? If that is the case, you aren't going to do any better than the N4.
Are you planning to use an upgrade to get the new phone for a reduced price?
One X+ would be an upgrade, but I would have a hard time using an upgrade to go from the Once X to the +. I would prefer to wait for the next wave of phones to hit in the coming months. That is just me though...

I would wait for newer phones to come out.. the One X is still pretty new and I don't think the performance is there yet to warrant a upgrade. It would be a side grade or maybe a 5-10% improvement at best.

Why you would want to use an iPHail? Resell value, yes. Otherwise, ***? Ha. Whatever works I suppose. Sell the damn thing and pick up a note2.
