Default [Q] high end gaming

can the one x+ play games like asphalt 8 at high visualy quality with no lag? or are most high end games by gameloft ea rockstar gta games laggy unoptimized for tegra 3 still, would anyone advise me to get this phone for gaming? NOT INCLUDING tegra 3 designed games. the ones by gameloft are better IMO

This phone is the Worst Choice for Gaming on stock rom
even dual core phones can run asphalt 8 better than hox+.because it's not optimized for tegra3 (many games)
and the phone battery temperature gets very high...sth about 50-55C or higher
I advise you >> Buy another Phone

2nd this. I am quite satisfied with the gaming performance but i could not tolerate the heat from the Tegra 3. If only mine is not a gift, i would sell it to get something better. HTC is not too friendly with development for this device as well. I wonder why they are spoiling the One series but neglecting the One X+ as it is one of their top devices

High end gaming and mobile gaming do not go in the same sentence. People don't understand specs don't mean SH*T if there is no cooling method or ventilation put into these devices. It could have all the 2.6ghz quad core snapdragon 1000 processor with 4gb of ram and 1tb of memory. Without anyway of cooling or ventilation you will yield 10-15min of "high end gaming" until the device feels too hot to handle so you will stop or the device stops itself from becoming too hot.

Phone specs look great on paper. What lacks is high end software for the high end specs and no cooling or ventilation. What's the use of a 800hp muscle car if there is zero ventilation to the engine???

Hmm, I don't know. Cause I can play Real Racing 3 for about an hour before battery is 0%. It doesn't over heat anymore. I gave it for repairs and told HTC overheating is the biggest issue now they solved it. Also told them battery has an issue, finishes too fast, they fixed it now I can high end gaming for an hour, previously 40 minutes
