HTC One X has its Galaxy S II moment in new ad

This moment in time, the most anticipated Android that’s set to be released within a week’s time is undoubtedly the HTC One X. A part of HTC’s new strategic shift, the One X is the most important phone the company has ever made, bringing it up to and surpassing “EVO” status. Well, a new ad for the handset line has hit YouTube (yet only shows the One X) and it looks like HTC took a few pointers from the Galaxy S II ad we saw last fall.

The ad is meant to be inspiring and insightful, with HTC saying that the world doesn’t need “another company telling people how great it is.” We’re inclined to agree.

The similarities of the HTC and Samsung’s ads aren’t actually all that great but once the message has come across, you’re left with a similar impression. We supposed that’s not necessarily a bad thing – both ads are meant to hit that human emotional chord in order for you to buy its phone.

The One X is a force to be reckoned with and after getting some hands on time with the device, we don’t really care what kind of ad HTC spits out – the phone is good enough without having to be coaxed into buying one. And until the Galaxy S III takes the stage, the One X will have the Android community swooning, even if you don’t care for the Sense UI.

Just in case you’ve somehow never heard of the HTC One X, prepare to be impressed. Rocking a 4.7 inch HD Super LCD2 display, NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor (dual-core Snapdragon S4 in American markets), 8 megapixel camera with Image Sense BSI sensor, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, any sensor you could expect to see in a high-end smartphone today, NFC, Beats Audio supports, and more.

Take a look at the two ads below

    That weak forward facing camera is the only blight on that phone. That and the lack of Tegra 3 in the US. I know that it’s a trend to have a weak forward facing camera but that should change, fix this please companies!

      S4 eats Tegra 3 for breakfast…

        It probably does but I haven’t seen anyone pushing for optimized versions of games with S4. I just want something solid that gives me real battery life and a better gaming experience since the normalhand helds appear to have lost their minds.
