  • HTC Desire X review: Needs and wants

    For one reason or another, the One series failed to live up to their potential in terms of actual sales, so HTC turned back to the time-tested Desire line to fill up the coffers and secure some time to regroup. A new attack on the high-end market takes months of preparation and it's up to devices like the Desire X to hold the line in the meantime. The HTC Desire X is a smartphone that few will lust after, but it's one that many will end up owning...

    Verdict: HTC has done a good job of equipping its Desire X mid-range fighter. Its dual-core chipset gives you a smooth ride around the UI and garnished it with decent app performance, while the build quality and display are among the better in this price rang...

  • Yet another mid-range HTC smartphone

    You may have been mistaken for thinking that there wasn`t really a gap between the HTC One V and the HTC Desire C, but you`d be wrong, as the HTC Desire X forces its way between the two handsets. On paper there`s very little to separate the Desire X from the One V, as this new smartphone appears to be an almost carbon copy of its One series brother. You can pick up the Desire X for around £215 SIM-free, while it`s also available for free on...

    Pros: Low price, Vivid screen, Compact design,

    Cons: Average specs, Lower RAM, Cut down HTC Sense, Flimsy back cover,

    Verdict: An interesting take on the Desire range that could thrive at a lower price point....

    The First day experience with Desire X A Nice

    Overall: The First day experience with Desire XnnnI was in search of a Sub 20K Phone for quiet a long time now.nnFinally... I decided to go with Desire X and got it in hand today. nnHere are preferences and the reason which lead me to buying Desire X.n1. Should have decent call Qualityn2. Should have decent camera which have minimum camera lag and better low ligh snaps for my occasional photography.n3. Should have good music player, Very good Music Playing capability and excellent audio.n4. Should get at least ICS out of the box since the JB has already released and Stock OS always will have its Advantanges.n5. Should have decent battery Life and reasonable build qualityn6. Should be a 3.7 inch to 4 inch display; nothing more nothing less.n7. Flash player Support is preferable.n8. And Above all, the price in India Should be less than 20KnnI did a lot of research and read lot of reviews. Finally Short listed.n1. Galaxy S Advancen2. Desire Xn3. S3 Minin4. Atrix 2 (Though this is a 4.3 inch screen I considered this for it excellent battery life)nnI decided not to wait for S3 mini since the price may be high (Around 25K) on launch and may have to wait at least until next Feb for the price to get dropped. And that is the Only reason I dropped S3 Mini.nnI dropped S Advance because of the Ginger bread, not so good camera, the low quality back cover and head phone jack at bottom. I didn't want to rely on the unknown waiting [period to get the ICS/JB upgrade by the time which it gets old again.I was not that much interested in front camera much because I am not going to make videos call with phones, neither interested in video recording and 480P capability is good enough in case I need something urgent. nnAtrix 2 have ICS upgradre available but, the Company - Motorola Mobility - is Closing operations in Asia except may be for Australia/China. But in India they are closing the operations for sure since it is a non profitable market for them and they are ramping down the jobs across globe. I don't want to buy a product where no one is responsible. So dropped that too.nnSo decided to go with Desire X though lack of gorilla glass was a concern (Neither SGSA Have it but SGSA seems to have a scratch resistant glass - not sure though. Not sure about the case of S3 Mini).nnThe Desire X experience so far for the last 6 hours since I started using it have been fantastic. Fluid performance and great looks. Wonderful on screen keyboard, neat browser with flash support and flawless performance. So far So good. Noticed a bit of heating up at times (I think for high graphic games), why and how, I will sort out and update later. The call quality is fantastic, so is the the Music player and audio. The Buold quality is not as Good as HTC one V or Atrix 2, But defenitly better than almost all Sub 20K phones. The back cover is bit of a concern, but not surely as much as SGSA back cover. The screen and the viewing angles are excellent. Will update on the battery life and rest of the things may be after a week. There is no HTC leap and There are only 5 home screens. Not a big deal any how - even the Iphone does not have any. How much you are going to use it?nnWe - the midrange users - think, we will do so many things with the phone. Infact what we do is, telephony, Music, occational browsing, bit of games and photography. So I want to nake sure these basic needs are covered with what ever extra comes. I think HTC desire X have to all with Beautiful HTC Sense skin over ICS. It is upgradable to JB (Android 4.1) too - HTC is know for it - to upgrade their phones OS on time and as many as possible.nnIt is foolish to compare Sub 20K midrangers with Galaxy SII, One X, One S, Galaxy SIII, Xperia S Etc. Make comparison with equals and you can make out Desire X have some goodies from them - Like the One X like camera Interface.

    For all who think Galaxy S advance is better

    Reviewed On:

    Overall: first thing first - S advance is discontinued. The stock that you are seeing on online retailers is all result of extra stocking. Go to any Samsung shop and you will get the real picture.nn2- There is something called build quality and looks. Handle S - advance and Desire device side by side and you will get to know the difference.nn3- Nothing beats HTC sense, least of all Samsung's touch wiz.
