Introduction

Launched in 2012, HTC Desire X is well worth considering even today due to its hardware, overall performance and its price tag. Its 1 GHz Dual-core processor and the Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon make it run Android Ice Cream Sandwich smoothly, and it can be upgraded to Jelly Bean (Android OS v4.0). As for the design, HTC Desire X looks remarkably good, and the use of plastic materials doesn't make it look and feel cheap. Furthermore, the top quality display and the decent 5 MP camera make it all the more desirable. Unfortunately, there's no secondary camera which is a bit awkward since this is today pretty much standard on all smartphones.

Overview

When it comes to the design, HTC Desire X sticks to the same principles as all HTC terminals do at this point so you can expect an attractive terminal that looks and feels great in your hands. Even though it is made almost entirely out of plastics, Desire X doesn't look cheap but is sure is a bit more sensitive that other more robust devices out there.

Desire X front side is dominated by the 4 inch super LCD and at the top there's the speaker and the proximity and light sensors. As mentioned above, there's no front camera, and this is one of the model's flaws. At the bottom, there are the three Back, Home and Menu buttons. On the backside, there's the 5 megapixel camera with LED flash which you will find does quite a decent job. On its sides, HTC Desire X has an extremely elegant design that nicely integrates the screen with the back cover and houses volume control and micro USB on the left side, Power / Standby button and audio port for headphones on the upper side, and the microphone at the bottom.

Verdict

Except the lack of a secondary camera, HTC Desire X makes a good impression. It looks good and the hardware platform allows for heavy use without slowing it down. The 1650 mAh Li-ion battery offers remarkably good autonomy and the main and only 5MP camera is more than enough for regular users. I'd say this Desire model is an excellent choice when you are on a budget but still want a quality terminal. HTC Desire X is recommended by its top hardware platform that features a dual core Snapdragon processor with 768 mega RAM and 4GB storage, the 4-inch screen with 480x800 resolution, and the upgradeable Android 4 OS.
