HTC Desire X review: Hands-on

HTC Desire X review: Hands-on

T3 0
  • The HTC Desire X sports a 4-inch screen along with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 5MP camera. We went hands-on...

    The new HTC Desire X has been designed for Android fans who want social features wihout shelling out the cash for the brand's flagship One range, which includes the HTC One X and HTC One S. In fact, the new handset sits below the range's HTC One V.

    HTC Desire X : Build

    The first thing to say about the HTC Desire X is that it looks nice, certainly for a phone in its price range. In white particularly, it gives the impression of a unibody chassis, though it isn’t.

    One of HTC’s strongest elements has been its Sense UI, which most regard as one of the better skins to the Android OS.  With the Desire X it is touting a range of social features that it says will enable consumers "to stay better connected".

    Users will be able to share photos, videos and files through touch interface and the Direct X comes with Dropbox cloud storage integration, giving consumers 25GB free for two years.

    HTC Desire X : Screen

    The 4-inch Super LCD screen looks sharp enough, and makes a good stick of displaying photos and video.  

    It has a 5MP camera, which is pretty standard for this level, however the F2.0 lens with 5 level flash and burst mode means the proposition punches above its weight in terms of photography.

    The dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor again, is pretty good for this level.

    HTC Desire X : Verdict

    The HTC Desire X can be seen as an attempt by HTC to pull down some of the higher end features from its top-end One series into a more affordable package. As a consequence of this, it seems like a very strong proposition in the mid-market smartphone arena.  We’ll take a closer look as soon as we can get a full review sample in at T3 Towers.
