I'm dumping my iphone 4 and want to buy an android. Now i need to choose between the HTC One X+ or Nexus 4. I play games on my phone, music, using some programs and web surfing/watching movies. Now the problem is that the Nexus 4 comes with only 16GB Storage and my music libary on my iphone is about 8~9GB and i think 16gb will be low. Now the HTC comes with 64GB but it costs a little more here and have less RAM.

What do you think? what should i get for long time.

Nexus 4. The first phone with the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, it still stands up well against competitors which haven't even been released yet like the Huawei Ascend D2 and ZTE Grand S. The Nexus 4 is thus probably the most wanted phone right now and is part of the reason why there's so much demand for it.

  • The Nexus 4 has a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor which is better than the Cortex-A9 processor of the HTC One X+.
  • The displays of the Nexus 4 and HTC One X+ are very similar and they're both LCD displays hence I would expect nearly the same quality.
  • The Nexus 4 has much more organized and timely Android updates and since it's a Google developed device, is much more reliable than the HTC One X+.
  • The Nexus 4's stock Android 4.1.2 experience is much better than the HTC One X's Sense bullcrap.

The One X+ has a very beautiful clear display, one of the best, a polycarbonate shell that is 100x better then the weak glass on the Nexus 4 ill pick the One X+ over the Nexus
post #7 of 49
The Nexus 4 has been sold out since release, good luck getting one... There are other alternatives with similar or better specs like the HTC Droid DNA.

if you have money you could contact google and make them do a custom nexus for you with gold, diamonds and 128gb, like a music artist would do

You can use online storage: dropbox, google drive, skydrive possibly.

Out of the box, the Nexus 4 will give you more performance (much better CPU), but the One X has the more feature-rich surface. If you like HTC's Sense interface, that would be the way to go. Definitely try it in a store first, a mobile carrier will have them on display (while a normal tech store might not).

I personally hate Sense ever since it came to Android (back on Windows Mobile it was great) because it is so bloated, but it's a matter of preference. If you are willing to play with ROMs and other stuff on xda-developers, you can get either interface on either of the phones.

In terms of other specs:
Both have non-removable batteries, though the Nexus will last a little longer from what I've read. Both are 4.7", but the usable display size of the One X is MUCH bigger, people keep forgetting that you have to slice off 0.3" because of the onscreen buttons on the Nexus... Also because of the Nexus' weird resolution and aspect ratio (1280x768), videos will be letterboxed and effectively smaller than on the One X.
The One X has 'Beats' audio which supposedly means a really good DAC and therefore great headphone sound quality.

Finally: the design of the Nexus makes it sleek but very slippery, which means if it falls (and it is more likely to) it will shatter whereas the One X might be in perfect order afterwards.

I'd suggest trying them both in a store, preferably side by side, and considering which one is better for you. In the end they are both fantastic phones and you won't be disappointed by either, but one might fit you better than the other.
