HTC desire X, indeed a great phone except the cons... No 720p camcorder, no compass sensor, no front facing cam, can't play even 720p HD video on stock player.

I am using htc desire x for the past one and half years and i loved the phone, until now.. the phone always had a heating issue, it gets really warm. please dont do jellybean update if you can, coz its not worth it. phone is fast, i liked it, but today, my phone suddenly got very hot, battery drained out completely and got switched off. now i cannot turn on at all even after charging/doing everything. i found out that this was a common issue with this phone, so my advice is dont buy this phone

i bough this phone on oct 2012,Even before 1 year i have to get the mobile repaired because of the switch problem.It was not working as expected.And after 1 year and 1 month suddenly one day the phone started heating up and started battery draining in 3 hrs even if fully charged.Then the phone went off and was not able to turn in.I cant even turn on the phone now.So please don't buy this phone if you are looking for long term use.

I'm using this phone for over 4 months and I'm quite content with it. Only cons are the lack of secondary cam and overheating. 720p videos do not play on the stock video player, any third party interface would work. The overheating can be controlled a bit by using an optimizer, which closes background processes. And yeah, you can use the primary cam for video calls :P I give an overall 8.5 for it :D
