Performance and battery life

When I first touched the Desire X at IFA, we were not impressed with its performance. For the short time since then, very little has changed. Users from the old phones that have lower specs can see this is an interesting thing, but if you use anything with greater power of the processor, it can feel a bit slow. Navigating through screens and swiping through menus feels a bit like an athlete in professional sports who has passed his glory days. It is fast, but will not defeat its opponents. The 8255 Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1GHz and 768MB RAM continue to be available now, but if you are on a two-year contract, you should know that it can feel obsolete before your upgrade appears on the horizon.

We spent a lot of spare time playing casual games, and of course there was nothing bad to report here, although it is not the device we will introduce to anything with heavy graphics. In general use (i.e., outside the game), we occasionally encountered a few screen glitches. It is not always the case, but maybe once or twice during the morning, we had this when switching between applications. When repeating what we were doing in hopes of re-creating the problem, it never happened for a second time. To know more clearly the strengths and weaknesses of the phone, we had to rely on the test, as you can see below.

SunSpider scores: the lower the better. The Xperia was tested on GLBench Vellamo 2.1 and 1.0, which is now obsolete.

Therefore, these numbers are a mess, reflecting our experiences: generally good, with occasional hiccups in performance. As for battery, with the 1650mAh battery underneath, and some of the potential savings generated from the smaller screen, it was 6 hours 33 minutes of standard video test (Wi-Fi on but not connected, and brightness fixed at 50%). In real use, we survived the next day before having stress of finding the socket. If you are the type to turn off the phone at night, then it can last a full 2 ​​days with moderate use.

We have mentioned some aspects regarding audio, but not everything is about the Beats, you may also want to call a few occasional phone calls. And if you do, then you will enjoy them quite well. Sound is heard clearly and decisively. Regarding data, we examine radio HSPA + in many places around London, and found that the download speeds were good within the standard of what O2 offers in this area (from 3Mbps to 4Mbps), with no apparent interruption in connectivity or services.


We like the idea that HTC quits the method of launching messy phones, and the naming seems random (Sensation? Explorer?). So we're still curious about why the Desire brand exists. The Desire C specifications are much lower, but they are embarrassing, the One V has lower specs but expensive outwitted by the Desire X on some important features (notably RAM and the number of processor cores). What about the design and build quality? Or the old habits sneaking back? Perhaps the name of Desire also adhered closely to the heritage of HTC that this company will not give up. Whatever reason it is, the Desire X still exists.

The Desire X can catch the moment, but it may start getting outdated very quickly.

More importantly, should you buy it? This question is mainly for customers in European markets and Asia, especially those who are looking to spend about 220 pounds/299 euros/$390 without SIM. If you are looking for an average-sized phone, which does not like the old Android and is capable of doing things like taking photos and playing games normally on your way to work, then you will not be disappointed with the Desire X. If you want more from all these items, you may soon find yourself asking too much from this phone. A more urgent problem is longevity. The phone can catch the moment, but as time and the software requirements - moves forward, the Desire X may start getting outdated very quickly.
