This thing is impossible to rough up

, posted: 22-May-2012 11:33

For the last three weeks or so I have tried my very best to rough up the the white polycarbonate body of HTC One X. While I am not courageous, or brave enough to cover the back in permanent marker and attempt to rub it out like this guy I have still yet to cause any marks that can’t be removed in seconds.

When I have started to notice some black marks starting to appear on the where the battery cover perhaps should have been they have all disappeared without any of my own doing.



The other few times some marks did stick around some saliva always did the trick in seconds. My One X hasn’t been sitting around in a case sitting on a desk all day either. It has been in shorts, unwashed jeans and even a bit of rain, and all it has to show for it is a bit of grime in the power button and the usual fingerprints.



If have perhaps been holding back on a One X purchase due to thinking that the white polycarbonate body will be easily marked, think again. The shell that encases the the Tegra 3 processor and other chips should cause no problems, and so far, at least in my case is still as good as new.

About the author

I’ll be honest: there was once a day when I got bored and sick of seeing all the smartphone related news in my RSS feeds. This day was literally no more than nine months ago. Well here I stand today; known as Blair the college student in the real world, ArchSerpo in this one. Whilst not even considered an adult by the Government I have established myself as a Android and mobile technology news reporter and in depth reviewer for KitGuru, Android Mobile New Zealand, and now (hopefully) the TelecomTech blog. While bias towards the green team may appear given, I have had experience with all the major mobile operating systems except BlackBerry and MeeGo in the last six months and always keep an open mind.
