    Is the phone only going to come in white? or is there going to be a black one to.

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Jeremiah,

      We’re only carrying the white version at that time. We’ll keep everyone posted when/if we have new models coming.

  2. Conrad Foucher

    Any word on a 32 Gb version? 16 Gb is not enough.

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Conrad,

      Sorry to hear that. At the moment, that’s the only version we are carrying.
      Thanks for your feedback!

    Is there anyway an American can buy this outright and shipped to the US?

    1. Rogers_Kelly

      Hi Jake,
      Orders can only be accepted for Canadian addresses.

    I got mine online, international version, unlocked, contract free! No thanks to a locked phone.

    1. John

      sure if you don’t mind not having a canadian warranty on an expensive piece of equipment.

      1. G203

        I always use unlocked phone only and nothing else since my first cell phone. I have never had one issue with any smartphone that would require warranty and if they break, just buy another newest and greatest.

        Locked phone is useless and contracts are traps. I can enjoy the great savings of finding cheapest plan with another provide. Unlimited any time calls, CID + VM, 100 text, unlimited incoming text, and 2GB of data for $57.50 + tax.

        Seriously, you want to pay like over priced plans or get charged on roaming?

      2. Seb

        Well good for you but the Big 3’s are the only solution that offer no roaming for many of us. Your situation and availability does not reflect on all and is not the only solution. If you can afford 700$ yearly on new unlocked phones many cannot.

      3. G203

        If you cannot afford a device outright, then you should not even get a new phone. With a 3 year term and the over priced plan, you are just like borrowing money from Rogers. If you do the math, you are just like paying well over 30% of interest, you may as well buy the phone outright and unlocked on a credit which charges you 19.99%.

  5. I just picked up this phone on the 27th.

    I love the phone, seeing as it’s bloody fast (faster than my friends SGSII and my other friends HTC Raider, and my older Evo 3D), has a beautiful screen and sports some solid battery life I’m definitely not complaining.

    I’m not fond of the 16GB of locked-in storage, because I like to be able to expand. But Rogers won’t likely get a 32GB model because that’s the Tegra 3 HSPA model, and more than 16GB is kind of excessive.

    Basically, there’s 2 models. Rogers carries the LTE model which has a dual-core Qualcomm processor and only 16GB of storage.
    The other model is the quad-core Tegra 3 with 32GB of storage, but only HSPA (No LTE).

    Honestly though, a phone doesn’t need more than 16GB of storage. Tablets? Yes. But phones, no.

    I recommend getting Juice Defender Ultimate off the Google Play store and using the “Balanced” setting. I wasn’t using my phone extensively yesterday, but after 11 hours off the charger it still had 83% battery life. Keep in mind

    Definitely worth the price tag.

      Hi Branden,

      Thanks for taking the time to share your valuable insights.
      Glad to hear that you like it!

  6. Kevin

    please get the grey model (black) for the HTC One X. I am interested so are a lot of other people! White is too girly

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for your interest and feedback. We’ll keep you posted if/when we have anything to announce!

  7. Jag

    Yes please, a black version and I’m getting this. Instead I’m thinking of getting the international one as the white one doesn’t appeal to me as a guy.

    1. will

      yeah me too, im waiting for the black one. If not, I will grab the international black one.
