Rated 5 out of 5Â by AlexC Great Windows Phone device
Not a heavy app user, so I didn't notice anything missing from the app store. Battery life was very good.
Phone is incredibly light, was a little weird as I couldn't feel the weight of it in my pocket. But overall a really nice phone.
Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by y2kunals Best Phone
Been eagerly anticipating this phone. Came out - got it the first day! Feels amazing in the hand like a razor sharp edge. I have friends iPhones and S3s that want to switch. Windows Phone 8 is seriously underrated because of the vast amount of Androids on the market. Anyone that spends an hour with this phone will be sure to leave their old device for it. The front facing camera is also the best in it's league. I would recommend this phone to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by christnina I have found love.
Initially, I was apprehensive about making the switch from my BB Bold - I'd had it for over 3 years, and would have chosen buttons over touch screen, any day.
But now I'm here, I'm never going back. With the Windows Phone 8 OS, I feel like I've stepped into a new era. Even my Apple Fan-Boy Boyfriend had to admit, it's a beauty. Although it is taking some getting used to, the platform is so simple and user-friendly, it's been as easy as pie.
For me, the PROS are: The absolutely ah-mazing OS, the gorgeous exterior (I was scared about the colour, but now appreciate it to be a nice extra touch#, the way it fits so nicely in hand, and the customizability of the whole thing.
The CONS: The camera is a tad bit of a let down #but I'm a big picture taker), the battery life is not as great as I was hoping for, and the automatic search engine is Bing.
The App situation isn't as bad as I thought. I have found all the apps I need, and a few rather addicting games. I am looking forward to getting some of the more popular ones, though. And life is continuing to go on without Instagram.
I love this phone. It's amazing. But don't take my word for it: you won't really know how great it is, until you hold one for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 8XLover We have a winner
In my opinion, this is the best phone on the market right now. It's pretty much an iPhone for PC with a lot more useful built-in features and a lot easier to do things with when hooked up to your computer.
Example; you plug this phone into a PC and you open its files like a USB. Just drag music, videos, ect.
Very simple to use, the design trumps many super/smartphones on the market hands down.
Unlike some phones, everyone and their grandma doesn't have one of these.
Also the music quality is unbeatable out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DotaNow Excellent Windows phone.
*Unlike devices over 5 inch, you can always use your phone with one hand, which is good.
*Camera is decent
Still not alot of apps for the Windows phone OS.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jValdron Overall, one of the best phone I've used
I've been an Android guy for about 2 years and a half now. I was looking at the reviews about Windows Phone 8, they look great, but I was skeptical. Just play with the phone for a few minutes, you'll see how fast and snappy everything is.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MattManDo Smooth and Beautiful!
Truly an awesome phone to hold an use! The 8X fits so smoothly in your hand as the rounded corners and Gorilla Glass screen seem to almost be made of a solid piece of magic.
The Polycarbonate body has a nice texture that doesn't feel cold like metal or lifeless like most plastic. Very organic feeling. There has been no need for me to use a cover as I didn't want to mess with the overall look and feel of the phone except I did find it easier to keep it clean (as with any device) as dirt and grime will eventually begin to show. Thankfully HTC makes colour matched hard cases as it would be a shame to hide such beautiful and unique coloured phones.
The inclusion of a dedicated shutter button is a great and welcome addition and can also be set to wake the phone to capture images almost instantly. Very handy if you have kids or are trying to capture a moving target quickly.
If you like music (who doesn't) you'll appreciate the Beats Audio especially if you have a good set of headphones to maximize your listening pleasure.
Overall an unbeatable (see what I did there?) choice for your next phone. Even my die hard eyePhone friends have made the switch and are happy they have. :)
