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.

HTC 8XT Windows Phone 8

3 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The form factor for the 8XT is perversely fondle-friendly–I’ll give it that for sure. I can’t say enough about the feel in-hand, which is accentuated by the soft-touch backing. The camera is a very strong in both low light and and naturally well lit settings.
  • Pros: Spunky little mobile device. Great for a myriad of casual uses. Beats Audio on the front-facing Boom Sound speakers is again fantastic. The phone is wafer thing. Comfortable and great to hold with soft-touch back. Processor is peppy but noticeably slower than our Lumia 928. Camera takes great pic...
  • Cons: There are better Windows Phone out there. The display lacks depth in the blacks and sharpness. Low screen resolution. Windows Phone ecosystem still struggling to keep up with iOS and Android.

HTC 8XT Review

29 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The HTC 8XT is going to get a lot of attention for the design, just as the Windows Phone 8X did. Unfortunately, once customers get past the pretty exterior they’re not going to be as impressed with what’s under the hood.
  • Pros: Colorful and comfortable design, Loud, rounded audio, MicroSD slot, Decent battery life
  • Cons: Low-resolution display, So-so camera, HTC's homegrown app selection can't match Nokia's, Unimpressive performance

HTC Windows Phone 8XT (Sprint) Review

13 August 2013
  • Summary: While the lack of developer support was somewhat disappointing, we're still impressed by the small size, fantastic audio, and Xbox Live integration. It's also worth mentioning that the Metro flair present in Windows 8 is best suited for mobile devices with touch support, so even if you're not a fan...
  • Pros: Professional Feel and Presentation:, Fast and Responsive Control:, Great for Streaming:, Surprising Size:, Xbox Live Connection:

HTC 8XT (Sprint) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Still, we like that the 8XT has expandable memory -- a rarity for Windows Phones -- good battery life and above-average audio. The 8XT is a solid choice for the audiophile on a budget and is certainly the best Windows Phone option on Sprint, but we recommend the T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 925 for its...

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.
  • 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).

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.
  • 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
