Why you should not buy HTC one X ?

The phone costs around RS. 38,000 which is good for the features it offers. But at this price the phone must have a 12MP or 14MP camera but in the case of  ONE X it comes up with 8MP camera only. The other thing which many people find strange in ONE X is that it has no dedicated physical key for capturing photos. I know that HTC wants it be slim enough but at the price of RS.38,000 it has got to have a camera shot physical key. The mini sim-card slot is again a result of the thinness of the phone. So, before you can directly use the sim card in your ONE X . You have to cut the sim and have to leave that part which consist the chip of the sim and then you have to insert it to use it same concept like the iPhone way of installing the sim card. The phone only comes with 32GB onboard memory and no SD-card slot supported. So, that means you have stuck with 32GB memory only.
