  • Excerpt: HTC's Windows Phone 8X hasn't aged gracefully. When it was first released in late 2012, the flagship smartphone was remarkable for its sleek, compact design, beautiful screen and speedy processor. By today's standards, however, the device struggles in almost every category. Its screen is still decent, but you can find much better. Its camera shoots lovely photos but lacks simple features we've come to expect from our phones.
  • Pros: The phone's physical design is beautiful, comfortable and compact, and you can get it for free with a two-year contract.
  • Cons: Its processor is very slow by modern standards, and its battery may struggle to get through a full day on a single charge.

HTC 8X

MobileTechReview.com
1 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The HTC is unique looking, absolutely stunning and we love the color selection. It's a quality piece of hardware with an excellent HD display, Beats audio and it's plenty fast. Windows Phone 8's app selection is gaining steam and the OS is now robust enough that it's a good time to try Windows Phone. The HTC 8X's biggest problem in the US is the bargain priced yet high end Nokia Lumia 920 that sells for less and doubles storage while adding excellent free navigation.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design and cool colors.
  • Cons: Lacks Nokia's value added apps from the Lumia Windows Phone line.

HTC 8XT review: a midrange phone in flagship clothing

pocketnow.com
28 November 2012
  • Conclusion: We want to like the 8XT as much as any other midrange Windows Phone – we really do. Its hardware is beautiful, its camera software is fun, and its BoomSound implementation is even better than the One’s. But its software just doesn’t measure up. Now, is the 8XT the first phone we’ve encountered with a laggy or buggy UI? Absolutely not.
  • Pros: Attractive hardware design, BoomSound lives up to its name, Third-party ecosystem improving, Camera viewfinder more useful than stock, Micro SD expansion
  • Cons: If you’re looking to “amplify your world,” the 8XT is available , for the regular retail price of $399.99, or $99.99 on a two-year contract with the Now Network. You can have any color you want, as long as it’s California Blue. It’s a shame HTC , ditched that Moto X-like customization, it had planned for the phone, as that could have gone a long way toward making up for some of the device’s flaws.

Test : HTC Windows Phone 8X

test-mobile.fr
22 April 2013
  • Summary: En septembre dernier HTC dévoilait ses premiers terminaux sous Windows Phone 8, le 8X (l’objet de ce test) et le 8S. La firme taïwanaise semblait très investie dans Windows Phone jusqu’à désigner ces deux terminaux comme étant « signature Windows Phone ». D’ailleurs, le véritable nom de ces appareils contient « Windows Phone » au milieu, aussi étrange que cela puisse paraître.
  • Pros: Design réussi, Bel écran, Windows Phone 8 (nombreuses fonctionnalités), Performances générales
  • Cons: Design réussi, Bel écran, Windows Phone 8 (nombreuses fonctionnalités), Performances générales

21 November 2012
  • Summary: Le HTC Windows Phone 8X propose un design plutôt valorisant. Ses performances sont au rendez-vous aidées par un processeur véloce et un système d’exploitation « aux petits oignons » qui autorise une large personnalisation, des outils plutôt bien pensés (dont le Monde des enfants) auquel il faut, certes, se faire mais qui ne demande pas tellement de temps pour le maîtriser. Reste que le faible nombre d’applications est, pour le moment, son talon d’Achille.
  • Pros: Finitions parfaites, Réactivité, Liaison avec Xbox 360, Qualité de l’écran, Personnalisation, Le Monde des enfants, Beats Audio
  • Cons: Mémoire non extensible, Batterie inamovible, Manque encore d’applications phares, L’application appareil photo l’a fait planter

Elegante, vlot werkende Windows Phone

DiskIdee.nl
13 November 2012
  • Summary: De HTC Windows Phone 8X is een elegante, lichte en snelle smartphone met een erg goed besturingssysteem dat knapper in elkaar steekt dan Android en op sommige gebieden ook beter is dan het besturingssysteem van de Apple iPhone. Vooral de “tegels” met actueel bijgewerkte informatie zijn erg handig. Minpuntjes zijn het niet ondersteunen van geheugenkaartjes en het feit dat je de batterij niet zelf kunt verwisselen.
