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...
Conclusion: The HTC Desire X is hands down the best way you can spend £200 on a smartphone right now and a good all-rounder. Strong design, screen, user-friendly UI, good 5-megapixel camera, performance from the processor and battery - possibly the most compelling smartphone out now across price and power.
Pros: Great build, Fantastic camera, Quick to use with good battery
Conclusion: Chances are thatthe HTC Desire X is a phone that you won't regret getting. Its maker has managed to deliver a reasonably priced smartphone that looks good enough to make you want to show it off in public.
Pros: Attractive design, Good screen quality, Performance is top notch
Cons: Horrible physical buttons, Low on native storage space
Summary: These days when most Android phones look the same, HTC is probably the only manufacturer who is thinking out of the box and giving the consumers new drool worthy contours and designs. The Desire X illustrates this.
Summary: The basics Didn’t you get the memo? Android phones are getting bigger: first the 4.7-inch HTC One X, now the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It’s the law. At least, it certainly seems that way, which is why the more compact, 4-inch HTC Desire X comes as a breath of fresh air, just in time for those...
Pros: While the absurd Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note sales numbers have shown there’s a big market for even bigger phones, they’re not for everyone. The HTC Desire X is a much more manageable size, with a screen you can actually cover every corner of with one hand. It’s still running much the same ...
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. The 800x480 panel is bright with great colours, but not hugely sharp: you...
Conclusion: The HTC Desire X is a perfectly decent midrange handset but is let down by its insensitive screen and it doesn't really do a lot to distinguish itself from rivals in this space, like the Galaxy Ace 2 , Sony Xperia P or Orange San Diego .
Pros: Ice Cream Sandwich, midrange price
Cons: Screen could be more sensitive, sluggish processor, not very distinctive
Conclusion: The HTC Desire X falls into a space between the HTC One V and the HTC One S, but is more restrained in its design. There are some points where the Desire X has been squeezed on the spec sheet: the lack of front facing camera and limited HD support being notable.
