HTC Desire X is a great phone entering with Ice Cream Sandwich, has a dual core 1 GHz processor with great graphics, and has a whopping 1650 mAh battery; but the downside is that it has a weak buttons (the power lock and volume key has a weak response and gets damaged easily.

2. The only weakness of Galaxy Ace 2 is that it's CPU power is slightly underclocked at 800 MHz, resulting in a slight lag when using many apps/live wallpaper. Samsung tried to tip the scales back to them by putting a VGA camera in front for video calling and self-portraits.

3. Xperia sola has a great timescape UI and the like, but suffers a weak and sometimes non-responsive shutter key, a 1320 non-removable mAh battery and causes a big hassle when the phone hangs (yes this happens, even in dual core phones).

Now, to rank them up according to practicality:
1. Galaxy Ace 2
2. Xperia sola
3. HTC Desire X

1.

> In reply to Bingo @ 2012-10-30 02:43 from py7J - click to readThough at first I suggest getting the Cherry Mobile because of the price, The Galaxy Ace 2 is on its way on getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. For me to comment better, may I request the full specs list from the screen (resolution and size), battery capacity, and if possible, the chipset, CPU and the GPU of the Cherry Mobile handset.

It is written here that is possible to upgrade to Android 4. Is this info official? or is it possible only with custom unsupported ROM?
