HTC 8X Review: In Depth
28 November 2012
Conclusion: This is a review of two parts. On the one hand there’s Windows Phone 8, a new OS with plenty of enhancements, though many too subtle for the consumer to see on launch. WinPho has always been a pleasure to use, it still is and the under the hood changes should result in a richer ecosystem down the line. That said, if this is the rate of growth for the OS, we’re slightly concerned when comparing it to the competition, namely Android.
Pros: Exquisite design, Pin sharp screen, Good battery life, Did we mention the design?
Cons: No new HTC customisations, No removable storage, 11GB user available memory, No LTE
Summary: Before the Windows Phone 8X by HTC was released, I was kind of leaning toward the Nokia Lumia 920 for the sheer amount of bells and whistles that Finland managed to pack in or the Samsung ATIV S for its massive screen and upgradeable storage. But after just a few hours with the Windows Phone 8X, I knew it would be incredibly difficult to give it up.
Summary: Windows evolution or revolution? The newest smartphone from HTC is the acid test for Microsoft. A new smartphone featuring interesting looks and hardware fused with the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system. An exciting combination with a lot of potential.
Pros: Innovative operating system, Intuitive operating concept, Device's attractive design, Build quality, High-end screen, NFC (near-field communication), Good camera performance, The good workmanship and solid hard and software performance in all areas.
Cons: No memory expansion possible, Built-in battery, Power button's positioning and pressure point, Affordable stereo headset, The application variety like for Android and iOS.
Summary: When the 8X was first released, it was priced at around £30 per month on contract. At that super-high price it didn't really feel like it was pulling its weight, and we awarded it 4 stars. Now that the price has fallen substantially, we're very happy to endorse the phone. We like WP8 very much, and we like many things about the 8X too. We like its look & feel and the way it handles. We like its pin sharp HD display, and its fast processor.
Excerpt: Il lancio di Windows Phone 8 è avvenuto e - con Ativ S di Samsung ancora latitante - gli unici a offrire dispositivi dotati del nuovo sistema operativo sono Nokia e Htc. Il battage mediatico di cui ha goduto il Lumia 920 ha oscurato il lancio dello smartphone di Taiwan. Ma sarebbe un peccato non parlarne. L'Htc 8X è uno degli smartphone più belli che la casa abbia sfornato e tra i migliori di questa generazione di supertelefoni.
