Can happen with ANY phone ...

Inexcusable, yes; however, anything can happen with ANY phone, including the iPhone.

Maybe they're just holding it wrong.

Pretty sure I've seen this question posted, but I can't seem to find it. Can the HOX mount a USB stick? It can be mounted as USB storage by a PC , but wondering if it can mount USB storage? If so, long flights become much easier - micro USB to female USB cable and movies on a thumb drive.

The international version can't. Partly because of an Nvidia issue. Beyond that, what HTC's intentions are aren't clear. The S4 version could be different.

I have to emphasize, though, that this is an overly simplified test. Bottom line, if I were to take similar pictures in a variety of lighting and contrast situations, there may be no difference at all. I don't know.

Although photography is one of my hobbies, I really would never think of using a mobile phone camera to take "GOOD" pictures ... and that applies to ALL mobile phones. However, given what's inside any modern smartphone, the camera in the ONE X, both versions, is incredible. The single thing about the ONE X camera that amazes me is the burst mode. It's truly astounding how many pictures this phone can take in such a short period of time.

Regarding video, I'll try to do a comparison another day. Unfortunately, I simply don't have time today, or in the next few days.

Photography is one of my old hobbies as well. It's just one sample, but I would rather see them both in low light than perfect lighting conditions. In perfect conditions, they should both take great pics. I also agree that I wouldn't use a mobile phone to take "GOOD" pictures, but I don't have my DSLR with me at all times. It's nice to have a capable shooter on your phone for taking everyday pics you would miss otherwise. We all thank you for you time posting all this info!

Has anyone found the colour temperature of the xl to be a bit warm (~5500k)?

Both the X and XL use displays from two different vendors. The Sensation did too. One display's cool, the other warm. There's been variations with cool being "blue" and warm being "yellow." You can try an exchange if your display's out of spec or if you purchased it from a flexible reseller. But technically, neither is right or wrong; just different.

I haven't noticed it but I only use my screen at 10% brightness to save on battery life.

... same with the old DHD variants... but even with the 3 different vendors for them, the color temp was pretty much the same.

One would expect it to easily be fixed in an update I wouldn't doubt.

I notice it excessively when leaving the brightness to auto. (I have mine set to about 40%)

5500 is not warm ...

No offense, but 5500K is not warm. I know this area very well because my business is LED lighting, and colour temperatures are an integral part of our customers' specifications.

5000K = Neutral
Greater than 5000K = Cold
Less than 5000K = Warm

Peter

P.S. To answer your question, I can't say either way if they are a bit warm or a bit cold. I'd have to do some specific testing. If anything, my initial impression is that they are reasonably neutral.

Addendum: I didn't realize until after I sent my last reply, above, that you were referring to the unit's display, and not the images from the camera. I've read numerous entries here on xda about displays being either warm (yellow), or cold (blue). Although I've seen pretty good evidence of the yellow screens, both my units, the Rogers and the International ONE X, appear to have very neutral and extremely accurate colour rendering.
