HTC 8X Camera: A Closer Look
Windows Phone Central
19 May 2014
Excerpt: While Nokia has been busy turning heads with the Lumia 920 , HTC has quietly produced a decent Windows Phone in the 8X . The Lumia 920 touts an 8.7MP camera with optical stabilization and Pureview technology. And while the 8X's camera may sound meager in comparison, it's not a bad performer in it's own right. If the camera is a factor in choosing the 8X, I think most will be pleased with the results.
Summary: HTC’s Windows Phone 8X is a delightful phone with excellent performance, decent battery life, a gorgeous screen in a unique form factor. It has the promise of being one of the best phone’s on the market, but is disadvantaged by a half-baked app store and a lack of Nokia’s proprietary apps. Nevertheless, the 8X has a great camera, best-in-class sound quality with Beats Audio and a powerful headphone amplifier, and a number of features that make it worth your time.
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. Battery life is questionable, as is internal storage and we would have liked to see HTC include some sweet Beats earbuds.
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.

Excerpt: HTC 8X Windows Phone Review We’ve reviewed a lot of smartphones and tablets here on Unbox. The device that got the most number of comments when we took it out (next to the iPhone 5 prior to local launch) wasn’t an Android phone. It was actually a Windows Phone — the HTC 8X.
