Since this has now turned into a Comparison thread between those devices i am going to move this thread into the Device Comparison forum.

Otherwise you might want to look into this comparison:

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 vs. HTC Desire C - GSMArena.com

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 vs. HTC Desire X - GSMArena.com

Hope this helps

Both are great choices but personally I'd go with the Desire X. It's already on ICS, has a good screen and camera.

I already have a sim only rolling contract for 10.50 a month.. which gives me 600 mins, unlimited texts and 500 mb of data. So I don't want to get into another contract, just want to buy a sim-free or PAYG phone.
