The HTC One X is highly regarded as being an excellent phone for playing music. As many people now use smartphones to replace standalone MP3 players, it is important that these devices offer comprehensive music functionality. In this article I will take a closer look at some of the music features of the HTC One X and the popular Spotify app which allows users to play music on the HTC One X.
The Spotify app is free to download from Google Play, and offers access to a vast database of tracks which is regularly updated with the latest albums and singles. In order to use Spotify, you must sign up with a free account. This allows you to browse and play millions of tracks stored in the Spotify database. This requires a data connection as music is streamed directly from this database rather than stored on the phone. This means that you do not have to use up your internal storage. When you are unable to connect to a data network, you are able to store a limited number of playlists on your phone, or with a premium account of which requires their monthly subscription you can store an unlimited number of playlists with the added benefit of no adverts and between songs.
Whether you are playing music through Spotify or the HTC music player widget or even streamed radio, you will enjoy superior sound quality to the majority of competing smartphones thanks to the inclusion of Beats Audio. This is the same technology found in the iconic range of beats headsets which are endorsed by hip hop superstar Dr. Dre. HTC recently purchased a controlling stake in Monster which is the company behind the Beats audio brand for a reported $300 million.
As you can see, the HTC One X has a number of impressive music features which sets it apart from the majority of the competition. If you wish to store your own music collection on the phone, there is an ample 32 GB of internal storage, and although there is no microSD slot, 32 GB is ample to store thousands of music tracks along with other files and apps.
The HTC One X is the perfect smartphone for music lovers, although it offers plenty of other impressive specifications like its high definition screen, 8 megapixel camera and the latest version of the Android operating system making it one of the most versatile smartphones on the market.
