The X10 stands at 119 x 63 x 13 mm, and the X8 at 99 x 54 x 15mm, making the X10 slightly bulkier. And heavier at 135g compared to the X8’s 104g. The X10 has a Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon 1 GHz processor, and the X8 has a 600 MHz processor. The internal memory of the X10 stands at 1GB with a microSD slot expandable to 16GB, meanwhile, the X8 to up 16GB.
The X10 has a 12.1 megapixel camera to the X8’s 3.2 megapixel, both devices share similar support for data connectivity- EDGE, GRPS, HSDPA and Wi-Fi.
The X8 and the X10 are both decent smartphones catered to different markets, however we wouldn’t recommend one over the other. The X10 is a top of the line smartphone, with better hardware, and a more expensive device compared to the X8. The X8 is a toned down version with similar software, decent hardware and a lower pricing.
