Windows Phone 8X by HTC; Fun phone to use
8 July 2013
Excerpt: I recently had the opportunity to test out a Microsoft Windows phone, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC . A number of other reviewers on the web have deemed it the premiere Windows phone, and I can see why.
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.
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.
Conclusion: It’s rare that we have nothing bad to say about a phone. The HTC Windows Phone 8X sets a new bar for Windows Phone. It is the first WP8 device we can recommend to those hunting for a top-notch superphone over the holidays.
Summary: Those not wedded to Verizon looking to spend less on a Windows Phone may want to take a look at the $99 8GB version of the 8X on AT&T. While heavier, the $99 Lumia 920 on AT&T delivers wireless charging, exclusive Nokia services and a better camera for $99.

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: Even though it’s burdened by an unnecessarily silly name, the HTC Windows Phone 8X makes Microsoft’s brand new operating system look spectacular. Software and hardware coalesce beautifully within the 8X, and it’s easy to see how this smartphone will draw attention not just to itself, but to the...
Pros: Beautiful design. Stunning screen. Makes Windows Phone 8 look hot. Easy-to-use camera shutter button with half-hold for focusing. Wide-angle front-facing camera is fun.
