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: HTC’s Windows Phone 8X exceeds itself on so many levels – ultra-sharp display, smooth design and impressive dual snappers, as well as plenty of social networking options and Beats Audio for quality sound. It’s just slightly let down by the lack of apps and the battery that drains too quickly.
Pros: Sleek design; user-friendly Windows Phone interface; Crisp colourful screen; Powerful snappers that can be expanded via ‘lenses’; Beats Audio.
Cons: Small choice of apps; disappointing battery life; lack of memory card slot
Conclusion: Le HTC One X était le flagship de la marque sous Android, le 8X se veut celui de sous Windows Phone 8. Le taïwanais a-t-il réussi à faire aussi bien avec Microsoft qu'avec Google? Réponse dans ce test.
Pros: Léger et bien dimensionné, rapide, écran réussi, rapport qualité prix assez bon.
Cons: Appareil photo inégal, manque d'élément différenciant, 16 Go en interne non extensible, autonomie juste correcte.
