HTC One X browser
The One X and One S ship with the most recent version of HTC's Sense 4.0 user interface. This has recently been updated to declutter the home screen — removing the 3D animated carousel, for example. A dedicated hardware button provides quick access to recently used apps, and the home screen has had a few other minor tweaks.
It also brings Sense-only features like ImageSense to add extra camera functions and comes with the full complement of Android apps included with ICS.
The One X and One S are Beats Audio-branded devices, meaning they should deliver better sound quality than other phones and have additional software audio features.

HTC One S
The HTC One S is slightly lower specced than its bigger brother but still provides many of the same features and performance.
The key differences between the two are that the One S has a 4.3-inch qHD resolution display and has only half as much internal storage, with 16GB. It also has a VGA standard forward-facing camera, rather than a 1.3-megapixel component. Its more modest specs are reflected in slightly cheaper contract pricing from most operators.
However, it comes with the same 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It is also a little thinner and lighter than the One X, measuring 7.8mm thick and weighing just under 120g.
