Summary: The HTC 8X, also known as the Windows Phone 8X by HTC, features a slick design, 4.3-inch display and a dual-core processor. The Windows Phone 8 software is enjoyable but doesn't seem to offer much over its Android or iOS rivals.
Cons: No microSD card slot; Rival phones have bigger screens and faster chips; App store is barren.
Excerpt: While the Windows Phone 8 launch spotlight has shined brightly on the Nokia Lumia 920 , there's another Windows Phone that has been lurking in the shadows. The HTC 8X launched over at AT&T on the same day and is a respectable Windows Phone within its own right.
Pros: The weight, slim profile, Super LCD screen, BEATS Audio, NFC Support, healthy battery life, respectable camera with BSI sensor.
Cons: Random resets, new aspect ratio that isn't ideal for older apps/games, battery drain present with some devices, capacitive buttons can be overly sensitive, and occasional lag with the front facing camera.
Summary: The Windows Phone 8X. Reversing a habit of putting merely a token effort into its Windows Phone range, HTC is greeting the launch of Microsoft’s eighth mobile OS with a handset that leaves no doubt about its flagship ambitions. The statement of intent that’s apparent from the look of the 8X — which immediately feels fresh, innovative and modern — is underlined by a bullish $99 price with AT&T in the US.
Excerpt: Everyone expected Nokia’s tie-up with Microsoft to mean that its Lumia handsets would be at the forefront of the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) experience. Then HTC snuck in a side door and before the Finns could react the HTC Windows Phone 8X was a ‘signature’ WP8 device. We’ve checked and Steve Ballmer’s signature is nowhere to be found although where you’d pop an extra feature into a phone this thin (132 x 66 x 10mm) and light (130g) is hard to discern.
Pros: Gorgeous design Windows Phone 8 easy to learn.
Cons: No expandable storage HTC’s included apps aren’t that great.
Summary: The HTC 8X is available in the market for Rs.35, 800, which makes it terribly overpriced for what’s on offer. It’s a superbly built handset with a very good form factor, has an excellent front facing camera and a high density screen. Apart from this, there just isn’t a singular strong selling point that would make us shell out this kind of money for it.
Verizon Windows Phone 8 Review: HTC 8x vs Nokia Lumia 822
20 March 2013
Excerpt: Wow, where do I begin? I’ll start by saying; I have no previous experience with Windows Phone (current generation). Years ago when I was an avid gamer (mostly Counter-Strike and other first person shooters), I was an all Windows man. I loved Windows as a desktop OS. I loved Windows as a server. It was pre-iPhone days, but I sure did love my PDA (HP iPaq). I loved my Motorola MPx220 with Windows Smartphone 2003 as the OS.
Conclusion: In the Windows Phone world there are really two choices: The Lumia 920 or the HTC 8X. The Lumia is highly lauded by Nokia for its photography, specifically low light abilities while HTC pushes the 8X as a thinner, overall better device. Physical size differences aside, both the Lumia 920 are and HTC 8X are very similar in terms of software. A few bundled apps differ. And as touched on above, the Lumia does still produce better images via its camera overall.
Conclusion: HTC have worked well to give us a great looking phone that offers a satisfying user experience. If you’re looking for a different experience from iOS or Android, then this is one of the better Windows Phones out there.
