5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for its price, 1 Nov 2012
This review is from: HTC Desire X UK Sim Free Smartphone - Stealth Black (Unlocked Phone)
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

Hi, I see from the web that most phones running on ICS 4 don't let you move apps to the external sd card. However I read one blog that says that you can still do that on this phone. I'd be really grateful if you could say if that was correct or not please! Thanks for any help.
