Reviews Word on the street

Xperia M  vs Desire X 

As far as details are concerned, the 480 by 800 pixels of resolution is so 2010, but it is acceptable for a display of this size, especially when a traditional RGB pixel arrangement is in use.
Desire X

As a media device the Desire X performs well, with the Beats Audio technology enhancing music tracks as well as audio in films, and while the 4-inch display may not be HD, it stills provides a good enough picture to watch a movie on.

Sony Xperia M is far far much better than HTC desire X. HTC desire X looks tacky whereas sony xperia m is stylish. Sony Xperia M has awarded as the best midrange phone till date.
