To power up the multimedia player and the overall operation, the phone has been bundled with the standard battery of Li-Po 1800 mAh but it’s non-removable.
To access the internet, the phone runs on GPRS, EDGE, 3G via HSDPA (21 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76 Mbps), and the 4G network through LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, and 100 Mbps DL. The default browser supports for Adobe Flash and HTML for full browsing experience. For the wireless connections, you will find the Wi-Fi (direct and hotspot support), DLNA, NFC and also the latest Bluetooth 4.0 version with A2DP feature. For the PC sync or data transfer, there's also the high-speed microUSB (MHL) 2.0 version.
The price of HTC One XL is $799.99 (unlocked). The benefits of this device will be the good construction, good camera specs, 4G capability and awesome HD display. The disadvantages will be the small amount of built in storage and also the lack of microSD card slot and also the non-removable battery.
