Default [Q] One XL or One X+

Ok so I am confused over which one to buy. The X+ has faster 1.7 quad core but the nvidia chip whereas the XL has the amazing Qualcomm s4 one. Which one is best regarding gaming? The X+ has better battery storage etc but better gaming?

You're asking a bunch of XL users which one to buy? You might get a slightly biased response here. Surely you don't need someone else to tell you how to spend a few hundred dollars. Personally I prefer Qualcomm chips. There's more development for the XL too. But in the end you're going to have to make the decision for yourself so this thread is a bit pointless.

I upgraded from my evita to a one x+ and was disappointed to the point that I traded back too a evita in the first 5 days development was not very busy no official cm and the thing was a fire hot battery animal

The X+ is HTC's red-headed stepchild (um . . . no offense to red-headed stepchildren). A mid-year incremental upgrade to the One X, the X+ was sold in extremely low numbers, with little support from HTC or the development community. The X+ was condemned to obscurity form the start, to say the least. I'd stay far away, as the slight increase in CPU power is not worth the downsides.

That said, unless you are really strapped for cash, do you really want to spend your hard earned money on phones that are a year to a year and a half old? I'd consider a more current device, especially if you are worrying about gaming performance.

Default One X over X+

Just acquired an X+ thru some linux PC work I performed. Used it for a week, back to my X. Def more custom roms & optimization support for the One X.
