Summary: I am going to hold my hands up and say that I used to be a massive fan of anything made by HTC. I have owned, in total, around seven different Android handsets by the Taiwanese giant, including the Hero, Desire, and Sensation XE.
Summary: We thank for the fast and smooth deployment of the test samples. This will change now with Windows Phone 8. With the new OS recently released, and right after Nokia, HTC published the next flagship for the new system generation.
Pros: pleasing one-handed operation, solid operating system (with small drawbacks), usually high performance, good workmanship, look and feel
Cons: no microSD-Slot, black level of the display, partly unexplainable delays ("continue..."), OS with small drawbacks, quite big

8 March 2014
Excerpt: A splash of colour, Microsoft’s latest mobile platform and a sleek new body are combined with more powerful hardware – is the 8X the phone to bring Windows Phone 8 to the masses? HTC’s been in a bit of a weird position these last few years.

HTC, sensing that there may be something much more for Microsoft’s mobile operating system, has opted to test the waters with...
Pros: Great performance, Stunning display, Excellent front facing camera, Solid built
Conclusion: After using it for almost a month as my daily driver, I think the HTC Windows Phone 8X is a great smartphone. It would have been greater if the apps that I use on my iPhone 5 are also present in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
Pros: Hardware design, Windows Phone UI’s smooth interface, Live Tiles
Cons: Lack of popular apps, Non user-replaceable battery, Non-expandable storage
Summary: As the flagship HTC Windows Phone, the 8X gets most of it right. The design is striking and feels great to hold and carry, the powerful processor makes the phone feel snappy and responsive and the wide angle BSI camera is fantastic.
