I should mention the newly announced Google Nexus 4 is a similar price and, on paper at least, much more powerful, so you might want to hold off until we've reviewed that. If you've clapped eyes on the HTC One X, the Desire X will look distinctly familiar. In the looks department, it's basically a miniaturised version of HTC's quad-core flagship, with a sloping metal edge at the top and three touch-sensitive buttons beneath the screen. It's a very typical HTC design, so if you're an existing user it'll probably be right up your alley.

When I booted up the Geekbench benchmark test I was given a score of 629, putting it alongside phones like the Galaxy S Plus. In the CF Bench test, it provided a score of 5,506. The excellent Galaxy S2 managed 6,442 on the same test, which isn't a mile away.
