HTC Desire X

This is a smartphone using the Android operating system but it's a relatively easy to use phone with a great battery life - on 2G (regular calling etc) standby time is up to 883 hours and talk time up to 20 hours, then for 3G use (internet etc) it's still a healthy 750 hours and 10 hours (these are official published figures rather than tested by us).

One interesting feature in terms of accessibility is the document viewer, making it easier to read email attachments. This phone has a pretty good 5 megapixel camera too and the 4 inch LCD touch screen will show your photos off well too. Sound quality is enhanced with the Beats system - again, getting away from the 'simple' but good to have if you listen to music on your phone.

Full Description


The Desire X is a quad band phone suitable for use in most countries as well as the UK. It has a 4 inch colour LCD screen and standard phone features like vibrate, speaker phone and an organiser. You can store plenty of contacts in the phone memory and MP3 and WAV ringtones can be used.


The Desire X is an Android smartphone so there are thousands of apps available from the Google Play store to enable you to do just about anything, some of them paid-for but many of them free or with free versions. The 5 megapixel camera will take very good quality photos for a relatively simple phone and you can expand the memory with a microSD, up to 32 GB - so plenty of room for photos or music.
