There has been a lot of speculation on the features of the new iPhone 5 that is soon to be released. Its expected features are being compared with those of the HTC One X, which is expected to be one of its greatest competitors.

It is expected to resemble the other iPhones and bear the Apple’s trademarks of proportionate body work stretch and rounded corners. There are rumors that the bezel edges may be missing or will be made extremely thin. It is expected to have a unique touch to its look that will distinguish it greatly. HTC One X had a premium feel due to its quality materials and its profile is slightly curved.
