Summary: The HTC Desire X is a decent mid-range 'droid for people who want a capable phone that doesn't cost the Earth. With a bright 4-inch screen, Android Ice Cream Sandwich and a dual-core 1GHz chip, it's a wise choice for budget-conscious Android lovers.
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
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 size of the HTC Desire X, and everything it can do.
Conclusion: Similar to some of the other HTC phones I’ve reviewed recently, the specifications on the HTC Desire X won’t blow you away, but they aren’t too shabby either. The dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor provides plenty of horsepower, so running through apps and swiping through screens for the most part is a lag-free experience.

Summary: The HTC Desire X aims to bring the distinctive style of the company's higher end devices to a low-cost, pre-paid phone. The lack of a front-facing camera and some annoying software issues aside, the Desire X largely succeeds thanks to an excellent design and a great display.
Pros: Vibrant and bright SLCD screen, Solid performance, Good value for money
Cons: Some annoying Sense issues, No front-facing camera, Limited internal memory
Summary: You get a lot on the HTC Desire X considering its mid-range price, including a bright, clear 4in display and an impressive snapper. With Beats Audio, and a good day of life in that battery, there are few mid-range mobiles that can beat it.
