    Colour Name: Stealth Black
    I've had a Galaxy Ace for nearly 2 years and while it was never fast it became increasingly frustrating to use - 800mhz processor really not sufficient, with frequent freezes and lagging. Enter the Desire X which I waited for and chose over and above the Xperia U, Galaxy Ace 2, One V, Xperia P, Huawei Honor. The dual core 1ghz chip does the job just fine , no slowing done or freezing while using the phone for regular tasks. The camera also is a highlight - it's fast, take pics while shooting video, almost instantaneous focusing, burst mode ( several frames a second, pick the best one, delete the rest)and Back side illuminated(better low light shots),incremental flash to help prevent white out shots. It has a dedicated image chip to make the camera zip along and is really what HTC say - best in class camera. Phone works perfectly without any of the problems experienced and documented with the One V,or the Home button problems of the One S.HTC Sense is a nice addition to Android ICS.
    The Xperia U in comparison performs well (similar processor but has a smaller 3.5in screen which is quite narrow) is good but the one I used the camera was awful, focusing problems,orange tint to photos, blurry and lots of noise. The Galaxy Ace 2 which I have also used, performed fine but again the camera was a let down, nice shots but very slow to focus. Desire X - Best in class

    Have had the HTC Desire x for about 2 weeks now in some ways
    its it looks just like the desire s though its a bit lighter and thinner the back is made of a kind of rubberised plastic which makes it good to hold some of the tech website reviewers have had an issue with the back cover and its removal it is on the thin side but with a bit of care its no worse than some of the other big brands as for the insides it runs on ICE CREAM SANDWICH 4.0
    And has a 1ghz dual core processor so far I've had no problems with lag and reception is really good call quality is clear battery is OK for this type of phone can get 2 days at a push but only a day if its been a busy one screen is bright and can be seen in direct sunlight (has to be on 100%)overall its a well made not to big in the pocket good responsive screen and a decent camera and although is only 5m pixels has the same spec that's on the one x. Hope this helps.

    After going through 2 Samsung mini S3s in less than 10 days due to freezing screens and cutting out during calls I decided to opt for the trust HTC again. I used to have a Desire S and although good, the Desire X is far superior. It is fast, clear, well laid out and very easy to use. The phone is stylish, incredibly light and half the size of the giant smart phones which don't fit in a pocket! The battery is amazing too, I use it for calling, texting, Internet and Facebook all the time and am only charging it every 2-3 days.....not sure how this is possible but I am definitely not complaining. All in all a cracking phone for a very decent price.

    I was looking for a replacement for my old HTC Touch, one of the best of it's era. I didn't want the huge HTC One as it has to live in my shirt pocket. Only a slightly larger footprint than the Touch, the Desire X is lighter and has a fantastic screen. It is a dream to use.

    When people ask me what phone they should buy I always answer with the question "what do you do/want to do with your phone?"

    Naturally, people want a phone with all the bells and whistles. They want a phone with the best camera, the biggest and brightest screen, a long lasting battery, the latest software and it needs to be fast. The problem is that a phone like this (Apple iPhone 5/Samsung Galaxy S3/HTC One X+/Nokia Lumia 920 etc) comes at a price. So if money is no object then these are the phones I would recommend. But what most people don't realise is that for half (or less) of the cost of a high-end device you can get a phone that has far more than half of their features. All you need to work out is what features REALLY are important to you.

    The HTC Desire X falls exactly into this category of being a very capable device at a fraction of the cost. It is fast (1GHz dual core), has got a large enough and vivid LCD screen (4 inch across), a capable camera (5 megapixel with a f2.0 aperture lens), a battery which can see you through the day with medium to heavy use, and a sound enhancement (Beats by Dr Dre) which gives music lovers reasons to be cheerful.

    In addition, the Desire X comes with features which are missing on some of the high-end devices. The battery can be removed and exchanged against a fully charged one, should the need for this arise. And the phone's memory can be easily upgraded via the built-in micro-SD card slot. For me those two features alone made the Desire X a very viable choice.

    But all is not rosy in the bang-for-bucks department. In their quest to produce an affordable AND capable Android device HTC also omitted features which can be found on phones even cheaper than the Desire X.

    I am a moderate user with little Android experience having freshly come from iOS. I am using a Google account to sync calendar, contacts and email. This phone and HTC's Sense UI make that very simple. The handset is light and slim with a 4 inch screen, the rear is slightly rubberised making it wonderfully tactile and unlikely to slip from your grip. I cannot quote screen res but it is a excellent screen, comparable to my recent iOS handset. This handset will take a micro SD card I am using a 16 GB one with no issues. One is NOT supplied with the handset, it is also not accessible without taking the back off. Taking the back off is easy but not something I would guess you would want to do often as the rear case once off is quite fragile, the volume rocker looks easily broken for example. However once back on the phone it is robust. The build quality is good but it is not as bullet proof as the HTC Desire's predecessor. Also to note is that it takes a full sized sim card, although I am using a micro sim with an adaptor. It comes with ICS which is fast and easy to use. You can have only 5 home screens but with an excellent range of widgets. Battery life is good but not great. I get one day really heavy use or two days normal use, this is about normal for most of the recent handsets I've had. It does 3G and the HSPA data and of course wifi, although oddly enabling the wifi does affect battery life a little. I also dimmed the screen to extend battery life which is not a problem as the screen is so good. Touch sensitively of the screen is good, I have stuck with the standard keyboard without a problem. Summary. I like this phone, quick, easy to use and robust ( for a modern 4' screen smart phone) with a good screen. I would like a bigger battery and slightly quicker processor however this is a mid range phone and what's on offer here is really good for the price and that probably sums up this phone- a very good mid range phone.
