HTC 8XT (Sprint)

PC Magazine
9 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The HTC 8XT smartphone would have been an interesting 2012 launch for Sprint, but coming a year after the similar HTC 8X, it's just meh.
  • Pros: Well-designed body. Windows Phone 8 is easy to use. Supports LTE.
  • Cons: Low-res screen. Too little built-in storage. Too similar (and in some ways inferior) to a year-old phone.

  • Excerpt: The HTC 8XT is a relatively recent offering on the Windows phone market. A Sprint exclusive – and arguably the best Windows phone the carrier offers – the 8XT features beautiful aesthetics, easy portability and a respectful feature set, including front-facing HTC Boomsound speakers. If you love listening to music and don't like wearing headphones, or you just find yourself using the speakerphone a lot, you'll appreciate what the 8XT has to offer.
  • Pros: It's attractive, boasts a solid feature set, and offers some of the best speakers you'll find on a Windows phone.
  • Cons: For a late-2013 device, its low-resolution display isn't just disappointing; it's inexcusable.

8 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Let's face it; if you're a Sprint customer, the HTC 8XT is your only choice among Windows 8 smartphones, though the Samsung ATIV S Neo should be coming by summer's end with largely comparable specs (except a bigger display) and a $150 on contract price tag. Even with competition, the HTC 8XT would be a very nice phone for the price: it's a great looking phone that's easy to hold and is well made.
  • Pros: Comfortable to hold, attractive and distinctive, BoomSound stereo speakers are above the fray, pleasing albeit low resolution display, expandable storage.
  • Cons: Low resolution display, only 8 gigs internal storage (mitigated by a microSD card slot).

HTC 8XT Review

Phone Arena
5 August 2013
  • Conclusion: In the end we found ourselves enjoying the HTC 8XT , and are glad to see Windows Phone 8 finally make its way to all four major carriers. We once again are impressed with HTC’s ability to design a phone, but the device is not without compromises such as the decreased display resolution. What it really comes down to is your affinity for the Windows Phone OS; as pretty and smooth as it is the ecosystem just isn’t there and market share shows that.
  • Pros: Well designed, good looking device, Combination of BoomSound speakers and Beats Audio make for great audio, Good call quality
  • Cons: WVGA display is a step down from the 8X, Color mismatches and an unnecessarily large camera bezel are visual stumbles

Sprint's first Windows Phone solid, not superb

CNET
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Though the HTC Windows Phone 8X brings some needed OS freshness to Sprint, its sluggish processor and average display make it hard to recommend for anyone but committed Windows Phone 8 fans.
  • Cons: The HTC 8XT's dual-core processor is slow and applications handle sluggishly. Its Windows Phone 8 OS has a comparatively small app selection compared to Android and iOS.

  • Conclusion: N.B. La recensione si intende come semplice esplicazione di caratteristiche, features e rumors e non deriva da una prova reale del cellulare.
