A few weeks ago we launched our X-Factor style competition that gave you the chance to vote for and win the phone that you think has the X-Factor. The votes have been pouring in and we’ve already said goodbye to 9 of the biggest handsets of 2010.
With just 5 weeks to go until we crown the winner, I thought I’d post a quick update and run through the 6 remaining handsets.
So, in no particular order, here are the handsets that are up for elimination this week!
The original HTC Desire is still getting plenty of votes, despite it being one of the oldest handsets left in the competition. It’s a powerful phone and is without doubt the most popular Android handset of 2010.
HTC Desire HD
The HTC Desire HD is an upgraded version of the original HTC Desire. It has a massive 4.3 inch screen, more internal memory and an upgraded camera.
Samsung Galaxy S
The Samsung Galaxy S is another powerful Android phone. It’s closely matched in spec to the original HTC Desire but has a better, larger screen 8GB of internal memory and much better battery life.
The BlackBerry Torch is the first sliding BlackBerry phone and it combines a touch screen with a full qwerty keyboard for faster typing. It runs the latest version of the BlackBerry OS and has a standard capacitive touch screen, rather than the unusual ‘surepress’ screen that was found on the BlackBerry Storm and Storm 2.
Nokia are hoping the N8 will turn things around for them and keep them in the number one spot. The N8 uses an updated menu system, has 16gb of internal memory and a 12mp camera that’s capable of recording HD video.
Apple iPhone 4
Despite all it’s problems, Apple’s iPhone 4 has been one of the best selling phones of the year. It’s easy to use menu system and ever expanding App store make it one of the most desirable phones around.
If you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these handsets, simply head over to our Love Your Mobile page on Facebook, ‘Like’ the page and then head to the Polls page to cast your vote. Remember to spread the word and tell all your friends and family so that they can be in with a chance to win too!
Full details on how to win can be found on the Love Your Mobile page on Facebook.

Whilst Mobile Fun has a great range of alternative car holders, if you have shelled out for such a high tech handset, as is the case with a HTC Desire HD, then why not go the whole hog and buy an official HTC Desire HD car holder specifically designed to look after your phone?
Looking ahead to the new accessories that we are due to have in stock very soon, we like the look of the HTC Desire HD Car Upgrade Kit or CU S440 to give it it’s official name, which I guess is only right considering it’s an official HTC product!
HTC Desire HD Official Car Holder - The CU S440
This holder attaches to the windscreen or the dash board and comes with an genuine HTC charger too.

The Desire HD is the latest Android super-phone from Taiwanese manufactures HTC. Despite only just being released, the phone is proving immensely popular with its 4.3” screen and 1 GHz Snapdragon processor. With such a large phone, the risk of it getting scratched increase – which is where the official HTC Desire HD Pouch comes in.
As it’s made for the Desire HD by HTC themselves, you know it’s going to be a perfect fit. In fact, the fit is a bit tight to start, but after a week or so using it you’ll be sliding it in and out with no problems. To aid removal from the case, HTC have integrated a pull tab mechanism, which means you’ll never be fiddling with the pouch when an important call comes in. The ribbon has a nice silky feel, and is firmly secured to both the case and the leather tab so it’s not going to break any time soon.
The case is genuine leather, so you know the quality is good. It is machine stitched, but it’s very neat and right at the edges of the case, so you get full use of the internal dimensions. On the front of the case is an engraved HTC logo, which while not serving any particular purpose, still looks good!
So if you’re looking for a way to protect your HTC Desire HD while it’s in transit, look no further than the PO S550 pouch. It’s stylish to look at, functional in design, and offers all around coverage against scratches and minor impacts.

The much coveted HTC Desire HD finally launched a couple of weeks ago, and it seems that the rush to grab one has been pretty full on, with Vodafone telling customers that they’re already working with limited stock.
Personally, I’m not quite decided between the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z yet – I’m quite attached to the idea of a physical QWERTY keyboard – so you can expect a blog-post comparing the two quite soon as I try to sort through my thoughts!
We’re currently expecting to offer the SIM free HTC Desire HD from the beginning of November, priced at £459.96, and pre-orders can be placed now on the website.
We’ve also been busy sourcing tons of HTC Desire HD cases and accessories ready for the SIM free lauch, and these have been coming into stock in dribs and drabs. But it won’t be long to wait now until all the accessories (not to mention the handset itself) arrive in stock, and we’re expecting them to fly off the shelves, so it might be an idea to pre-order pretty sharpish if you want to get your hands on them.
Here’s our top three choices of case for the Desire HD:
Flexishield Skin for the HTC Desire HD
1. Flexishield Skin for the HTC Desire HD
Our best value case, the Flexishield is similar to a crystal case but with the durability and flexibility of silicone. That keeps the phone protected from knocks and bumps, without adding too much bulk to the handset – something that you certainly don’t need, as the Desire HD is so large already.
Case-Mate Barely There Case for HTC Desire HD – Silver
2. Case-Mate Barely There Case for HTC Desire HD – Silver
The Case-Mate range is available in a variety of sedate but stylish covers, giving your phone more personality whilst keeping it looking tasteful. The case wraps tightly around the phone, emphasising rather than hiding its curves, and protects whilst also allowing access to all the ports and buttons that you need.
Piel Frama Case for HTC Desire HD
3. Piel Frama Case for HTC Desire HD
For something a little more costly but high-quality and professional-looking, the Piel Frama is an HTC Desire HD case that is designed to impress. Each case is made from finest hand-crafted leather, which each case taking a total of 25 days to manufacture from start to finish. The company also take a lot of care to work within the guidelines for ecological leather manufacturing.
