Good screen quality
Chances are thatthe HTC Desire X is a phone that you won't regret getting. Its maker has managed to deliver a reasonably priced smartphone that looks good enough to make you want to show it off in public. Besides, the handset runs as smoothly as a contemporary Android device should and its front is graced by a screen of above average quality. Yet be aware of the fact that the HTC Desire X has its flaws.
The HTC Desire X is a decent mid-range phone which offers up a smartphone experience you've come to expect from handsets which cost around Â£200.
It's doesn't offer anything particularly thrilling, nor does it having any major flaws and while the design is welcoming and the UI intuitive, we can't help but feel HTC hasn't pushed the Desire X to its full potential.
Decent app performance
HTC has done a good job of equipping its Desire X mid-range fighter. Its dual-core chipset gives you a smooth ride around the UI and garnished it with decent app performance, while the build quality and display are among the better in this price range. More importantly, the smartphone has just one major weakness, which can break the deal for you.
Neat, slim design
The HTC Desire X lops off some features to squeeze its slim body into a lower-mid range pigeonhole. Most of these aren't too critical. It uses a cut-down version of HTC Sense, has no user-facing camera and the main camera isn't too hot. But it gets the basics down well. The screen is surprisingly good given its unimpressive specs, the dual-core processor makes sure it's nippy and it's generally a pleasure to use.
What a great phone
This phone is fantastic. comes packaged beautifully. it's easy to use, the display is crystal clear and the camera is outstanding for a cell phone. I have found call quality and battery life to be great. I'm getting used to the operating system- I was used to an apple type system, but, the HTC system is pretty easy to use. if you're looking for a nice looking phone that has a lot of convenient apps, but, don't want to spend too much money, but this phone.
4-inch Super LCD screen looks sharp
The HTC Desire X can be seen as an attempt by HTC to pull down some of the higher end features from its top-end One series into a more affordable package. As a consequence of this, it seems like a very strong proposition in the mid-market smartphone arena.
Designed like the more expensive One X
It really is impressive how much of the One X DNA has trickled down to the cheaper Desire X. The Super LCD screen is especially welcome in this price category, and those choosing the Desire X have security in the knowledge that they have the best version of HTC's Sense UI available at this time. In most areas, the Desire X holds its own hardware-wise, though its 1GB of storage is stingy.
There is, quite simply, no better Windows Phone smartphone on the market than the Nokia Lumia 800. It features wonderful hardware in terms of both design and quality, and Microsoft's operating system runs more smoothly on the Lumia than on any other Windows Phone to date. This phone is a flat out winner, and a great alternative for those that wish to rise above the flood of iPhones and Android smartphones that we wade through daily.
Solid, stylized design
And so it begins, Nokia's partnership with Microsoft has reached fruition and the first taste is in our hands. Bearing in mind how quickly Nokia got this to market, the custom Nokia Apps they pulled out of the bag and the reformatting of MeeGo hardware to fit a Windows Phone platform, we can do little but commend. The Nokia Lumia 800 sports a beautiful screen, slick design and promising OS only made more attractive by the inclusion of Nokia Maps, Drive and Music.
Although we had our doubts during initial familiarisation with the Nokia WP7 environment, the transition from the Symbian environment will be much less painful than expected for those still entranced by the Nokia brand. In less than 48 hours we went from wanting to return to our old phones to not wanting to let go of this one. After four months with the Nokia Lumia 800 we still don't want to let it go, although we have had to accept some of its negatives to make the most of its positives.
The Nokia Lumia 800 is a well built and handsome handset with a solid set of features. However, its combination of mediocre specs and mostly standard implementation of Windows Phone certainly doesn't catapult it above the competition. It's definitely one of the better Windows Phones, and the Nokia exclusives like Nokia Drive and Mix Radio have the potential to be great features, but considering the fanfare, we're a bit underwhelmed.
Comfort is quite good
As much a fashion accessory as it is a headset, Nokia's BH-800 mono Bluetooth headset puts on a good show despite its compact size. Its mediocre range and average battery life are likely both consequences of its design, while the rubber-encircled speaker insert is less so; still, comfort is quite good once the initial (and cumbersome) adaptation has been carried out, and the headset's easily-distinguished keys and good quality further contribute to a positive overall impression.
Sturdy and sleek construction, with a vivid display
The Nokia Lumia 800 is probably Nokia's best smartphone so far. It has a sturdy and sleek construction, with a vivid display, paired with refreshing software from Microsoft. If you are just upgrading to a smartphone or you have one of Nokia's Symbian devices, then the Lumia 800 is a stellar upgrade: it's fast, easy to use and it looks great.

The mid-end price point coupled with the simplistic Windows Phone OS and the unibody chassis of Nokia N9 is definitely a good buy. The Nokia Lumia 800 definitely is a great choice to include to your to -buy list.
However, the drawback will be the limited applications available for Windows Phone (for now) and the absence of mass storage. Overall, you will find it a pretty decent partner to go with, especially when it is priced at RM1650.
Simple phone includes some bells and whistles
Got this phone because it didn't require a data plan. Definitely knew this wasn't a smartphone, unlike one reviewer, and for sure knew this didn't have Wi-Fi, unlike another. This phone has camera, video camera, voice recording & MP3 playback functionality. It has alarms, a calendar, calculator & unit conversion, speed dial, pictures for contacts and more. It's pretty close to being a smartphone without requiring a data plan from AT&T.
The scalloped individually mounted keys feel secure and responsive and the layout is excellent.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is another classic BlackBerry that ticks all the boxes we'd expect; the keyboard's great, the screen is small but very sharp and nice to look at, messaging facilities and call quality are superb, and you'll get days of use out of it. However, it's not much of an upgrade compared to the Bold 9700 and is starting to look a bit behind the times.
good viewing angles
For current BlackBerry users who aren't interested in a touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 comes highly recommended: it possesses a great keyboard, best-in-class email capabilities and a refreshing new interface. However, it offers little incentive for others to switch to the BlackBerry platform.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a safe phone, based on a trusted model (the Bold 9700), and anyone that’s looking for reliability and ease of use will not be disappointed with it.

the external speaker is very good, having more body than many other rivals.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is an improvement over the 9700, which was an excellent device in itself. The inclusion of more RAM and a new operating system brings a device that runs faster and smoother than previously, but feels as though it is already slightly out of date, especially when you start examining the multimedia offering.

Picture quality was surprisingly good when we tested the camera outdoors.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 offers an unparalleled QWERTY keyboard and the new OS 6 addresses a number of key complaints we had in the past, including the browser which was seriously behind the times. This makes it one of the best non-touchscreen QWERTY smartphones in the market.
Ironically, constant text messaging and e-mails might quickly become cumbersome on the Kin One.
The Kin One is a decent phone for documenting and sharing your life with friends, but itâ?? s missing so many features that, even now that itâ?? s offered for free, we donâ?? t think itâ?? s a great deal. It doesnâ?? t have any games or access to third-party apps, and the fact that youâ?? re forced to pony up $30 a month for an unlimited data plan is tough to stomach when the browsing experience is weak. If youâ??
Even more convenient, everything you do on your phone is mirrored on Studio, which means all photos and low resolution videos are automatically uploaded to your Kin Web page.
As we all know, “different” does not necessarily equal “better.” Yes, the operating system Microsoft has concocted for its ballyhooed Kin One ($49.99 with rebate and two-year contract) and Kin Two ($99.99 with rebate and two-year contract) phones, made by Sharp for Verizon, is way beyond different.
