    The X Factor in HTC Desire X DS

    Overall: I would recommend to list down and prioritize your requirements first before choosing any product and secondly admit the fact that "Every product will be superseded by other(in technology and price), so you can't get the best product but you can make the product , the best of yours".

    The fact is its really complicated to choose a mobile without above recommendations.

    I had been comparing the mobiles under 16K with dual Sim for past 3 months. The products which I had taken for comparison are Samsung - S Duos, Core, Quattro and HTC - Desire V, Desire U(replaced desire V), Desire X DS and some products in Sony, LG, Nokia.

    My requirements were an elegant looking (especially white) mobile with attractive gestures, decent graphics for gaming, pleasant music experience and of course smooth surfing (incl FB & Whatsapp...).

    I found HTC Desire X DS suits my requirements at the most. Out of my 2 weeks experience

    Pros are
    # Awesome external finishing with great white look - HTC polar white is unique.. try that!!
    # Super LCD2 screen - whether others mostly have TFT
    # HTC sense 4+ Interface- I am addicted to it!
    # 1 GHZ Dual Core processor - More than enough for the mobiles in this range
    # Auto Call forwarding option - To compensate Smart Dual Active (in Dual SIM Phones)
    # Car Mode - The mode which is very useful while you are driving
    # Decent Camera - 5 MP nice to have with LED Flash

    On Par
    < 768 MB RAM - Compact for this configuration but if you are a full time gamer it may disappoint you
    < Battery - Charge stands for 1 Day & 14 hours of usage with full time 3G activation - quite decent
    < Beats Audio - It s okay but not promising
    < One click power saver - nice try
    < Improved Galley Look

    > Gets heat after 2 hours of usage (due to Dual core processor - think of Quattro (quad core).... :-(
    > No HD.....
    > Not both SIMs are 3G its 3G+GSM
    > Little Costly for the features- don't know why HTC has limited models which are costlier

    Previously I had HTC desire C and it got hanged up, soft keys weren't working where I had been forced to scarp it literally.

    After that many advised me not to go for HTC but I believed HTC has thin element which supersedes other brands it may be gesture or appearance or interface, where HTC is the best. Believe it or not once you used to HTC you need to think a lot before switching to other brand - it s nothing but HTC sense.

    Hope you got a better picture on this mobile.... One last thing.... never drop your mobile even throwing in bed/ pillow... which caused my HTC desire C to behave abnormal.. Whatever may be your mobile.. take care of it.

    Overall: I bought HTC Desire X very fondly. It did run very smoothly for first 5 months. I totally loved it. Then slowly my phone started giving me problems. Games like temple run, Subway surf , Cut the rope started to hang and worst ever NETWORK ISSUES.
    I started getting tired of the 5 transparent signal lines with a small white "X" above them telling me that there was no signal in my region when my friends having the same service provider were getting strong signal strength.I thought there must be a problem with my sim. But i got it checked. My sim was fine, the phone was the culprit!
    As my phone was in warranty i took it to the service center. But to no avail. I started getting the problem again!
    Dont believe me? Surf the net and you will see many troubled customers like me who are dealing with network issues with their HTC Handsets.
    Please save yourself from this pain and suffering and buy ANY other phone but this!
    Anyways, if you still want to go ahead with this hell of a device, well my best wishes to you. Hope you dont suffer the same fate as mine :)
