HTC Desire X Review


We recently sent the newest member of the Desire range, the HTC Desire X, to PC Advisor for review. Below is an extract of the review written by Chris Martin.

Although HTC has returned to the Desire range, you’d be forgiven for confusing the Desire X with the HTC One S. From the front, they look about identical with a recognisable clean and rounded look that’s now synonymous with HTC smartphones.

The HTC Desire X is a little smaller than the One X and a tad larger than the Desire C. It’s the first time HTC has plumped for a 4in screen since the Incredible S – ignoring HTC’s yet to be released budget Windows Phone 8S.

The size, shape and weight of the Desire X means it fits nicely in the hand. We measured the handset at 62 x 118 x 9.5mm and 116g. Our review sample from Clove came in black but there’s also a white model with blue trim around the camera.
