Summary: HTC’s argument that the Desire X is more affordable than the One series is a little bit odd, given that this is a vastly more powerful phone than the HTC One V. But your hands probably don’t care about technicalities, or the difference between different flavoured Android desserts: they’ll love the...

Cons: While the HTC Desire X is more than fast enough for all but the most hardcore users and 3D gamers - more so in fact than the HTC One V, which is odd since that’s meant to be a classier phone - its specs aren’t cutting edge.
