The phone’s performance is reported by HTC to be 67% faster – with an updated NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 1.7GHz Quad-core processor.

For the audiophiles, the phone comes with Beats Audio built it.

HTC Windows Phone 8X

Business users and those dying for the Windows 8 experience via a phone may be happy, though some critics have been a more than a little luke-warm on the phone – stating it is not quite up to the standard of the latest HTC Android offerings such as the One X +.

The phone doesn’t come with a huge amount of storage – just 16GB – and there is no external memory slot. Efficient use of cloud storage would mean this may not be a major problem, though anyone downloading more than a handful of HD movies could quickly come unstuck.

The screen is quite large at 4.3 inches.

The phone has a Qualcomm® S4 1.5 GHz Dual-core processor.

HTC Windows Phone 8S

The HTC Windows Phone 8S is lighter than the 8X, though has a slower Qualcomm® S4 1 GHz Dual-core processor, and less memory – with just 4GB of internal storage. The phone does however allow for external memory with a micro-SD card slot.

The phone has a built in camera button for taking images, accessible from the lock-screen.

The HTC Windows Phone 8S comes with built in Beats Audio.


The HTC One X is an excellent phone, which has only recently been superseeded by HTC One X +.

The phone features a large 4.7 inch screen and a fast 1.5 GHz, quad-core processor.

The HTC One X comes with a sizeable 32GB of internal memory.

If you are thinking of getting a ONE X, you may want to check how much extra it is for a One X +.

If it is only an extra £30 or so – as is often the case – you get essentially double the memory and greatly increased speed, which is worth the extra.

HTC Desire X

The 38X has a slightly different but is otherwise the same.

HTC Ozone

This is THE smartphone for anyone who shuns modern phone developments. It keeps the whole user interface simple without being overly simplistic. The design is more like a 90’s phone but boasts all the features of a typical smart phone making it another good all-rounder.
