Smartphone Madness Game 7: HTC One X vs. BlackBerry Bold 9900. Voting Ends 3/21 at 9 a.m. EST


We’re nearing the end of the first round of Smartphone Madness 2012. Yesterday, the LG Optimus 4X HD beat the Motorola Droid 4 to move on to the second round. Today’s matchup features the HTC One X and the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Which one will go on to face the Samsung Galaxy S II is up to you!

Like Duke’s Plumlee brothers–when they were still playing in the tournament–HTC has a pair of phones that should have a deep impact this year. Along with the HTC One S, the HTC One X, unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress, is literally a quick shot. When we tried it out, it snapped a photo in less than a second after we pressed the shutter. It’ll also take up a lot of space in the lane, too, as it has a massive 4.7-inch Super LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. 

Going up against the HTC One X is the BlackBerry Bold 9900. RIM is the UCLA of the smartphone world: Really successful about five years ago, but now in complete disarray. Still, the company shows flashes of what once made it great. The Bold 9900 is a perfect example: It’s a well-designed phone with a great keyboard and fast performance, but it lacks 4G and has limited app selection. 

Some may prefer the classic Bold 9900 to the upstart HTC One X. It’s up to you to decide!

    So, are we voting on the real HTC One X with a quad-core processor, or are we voting on the gimped AT&T branded version that has two cores truncated but has LTE?
