Rated 5 out of 5 by nice phone NEW DELHI: There is a dearth of good Android phones with a price of less than Rs 20,000. We keep hearing how wonderful Samsung Galaxy S III or HTC One X are. But these are expensive phones, costing upwards of Rs 30,000, a price few Indian buyers pay for a smartphone. HTC tried to address the sub-Rs 20,000 market with One V. We found the phone to be good. Design was fantastic, camera decent and the software capable. But its performance left much to be desired due to its single-core processors. Now HTC is back with Desire X. Once again the target is sub-Rs 20,000 market. On paper, at least, Desire X ticks all the right boxes. It has a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a dual-core processor and has 768MB RAM. It has 4GB internal storage with support for up to a 32GB SD card. It packs in a 5 mega-pixel camera. Desire X has the chops to become our favorite mid-range smartphone. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Can the (seemingly) good hardware enable the smartphone experience that we expect from Desire X? Superbly designed The phone's design, just like most other HTC devices, is almost impeccable. Desire X has inherited lots of style from One X, a flagship Android phone by HTC. It has the same rounded edges and sides curve down gracefully. The phone fits very well in the hand. Just like One X, Desire X too uses plastic. But, given the price point HTC is trying to achieve, the quality of plastic is inferior on Desire X. Though, it is not as bad as the glossy plastic that phones made by Samsung or Sony use. At 114 grams, the phone is quite light. But we said the design is almost impeccable. So, where does HTC get it wrong? Desire X has three physical buttons - power, volume up and volume down. While power button is all right, we found volume buttons to be very stiff and fiddly. Half of the time pressing it doesn't do anything. It is a minor annoyance but worth noting. Desire X is powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich and not Jelly Bean, which is the latest version of the mobile operating software. But in terms of user interface, it doesn't matter because HTC has customized the look and feel of Android with Sense 4.0. Ideally, we will like to see all Android phones to have the default user interface but phone manufacturer find it hard to let go of their customized software. Fortunately, Sense 4 is a polished user interface. Visually, it is very good looking and goes well with the design aesthetics of Desire X. But it lacks major Android features like Google Now, an intelligent virtual assistant because that is part of Jelly Bean. Mixed performance In our daily use, we found Desire X to be a very capable phone for most of the tasks. The screen lacks the retina-busting pixels-per-inch (PPI) number found on high-end phones bit it is very bright, shows pleasant colours and has good touch response. November 18, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by All in all a good phone I've bought this phone about 1.5 years ago, and I have been very satisfied with it. The camera takes good pics, unfortunately not at night :( The sound used to be good, but I feel since the last Android update the speakers seem more silent than before. The screen is cool, although there is not too much difference to non slcd phones. As easy to use as any other android phone. The battery goes dead within 1 day, but it might be because of my extensive use (mostly Apps). I'd definitely recommend it, but since there's so many new phones by now, probably I'd buy another model! November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by From Nokia to Desire X ? Exellent I was using a Nokia smartphone with Symbian, and my god it was awful.After two years of using it i decided to upgrade to Desire X.After a moth? I can tell you it's exellent for its price.Of course, sad if the fact that it isn't recording an HD video (which is sad, because this phone has enough power for it in my opinion) and battery isn't the best, but it's not bad either.Over all, i really recommend to pick up this phone for a good price, because it is worth money that it costs.
