The Desire X is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with Sense 4.0 UI on top. The phone comes with 768 MB of RAM. With such decent specifications under the hood, the performance on the phone should be pretty smooth.

The device comes with 4 GB of internal storage which can be extended up to 32 GB via a Micro-SD card. With this, the users would also get a free storage of 25 GB from Dropbox for 2 years.
