Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pedah As a Early adopter of Windows Phone, and a long time HTC User, I knew I had to have the 8X. Was it though, going back to Basics?
It seems like Windows Phone has been playing catch up since it was first released, yet it has developed strongly over the last three years. With it HTC have also developed, and the HTC 8X is light years away from the HTC Mozart that I had initially.
It definitely could be said that HTC had been in a design rut, that goes back to the HD2, and it is only recently with the One X that there has been a change, sleeker, different materials, and a lot more power under the hood.
Then the 8X [and 8S] come along, and it is a really dramatic change. It's not about size, it's about feel. When I compare the 8X to my Titan 2, same height, different width, different depth and weight. The difference in style is phenomenal though, yet some of my favourite things about HTC devices are preserved.
There is something about the finish on all the HTC devices I've had, that is warm, alive, tactile, matt, that even on the 8X, even though it's body construction is polycarbonate, is a pure pleasure in the hand.
In fact the 8X is hard to put down, and rather transfixing, I find myself holding it and looking at it, caressing it and rolling it over in my hand, it feels connected.
The 720p screen, 4.3" is beautiful, and coming from a larger screen, is much more vibrant and sharp than I would have thought. Web browsing and image editing on the phone gives really accurate colour matches to what I see on the PC.
I am not much of a music user, but using the phone to watch video, the on board speakers are more than adequate, and I do not find them distorted or scratchy.
Having used Windows Phone for a long time I do use a certain amount of preferred apps, and the WP keyboard still eclipses all other OS keyboards that are not third party. The suggestion engine in WP8 is incredible.
If the 8X was a real step up from my former HTC devices, it's really in it's network speed, always connected is the modern catch phrase, and with the 8X it's true.
Over all it is a feast for the eyes, the hands and the mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing audio experience and stunning visuals.
This has been a wonderful device for me. I wasn't "sold" on the Beats thing. Mainly because I've never actually listened before. I can say, after using the HTC 8X, it has re-written my music enjoyment. And it isn't just the bass either. The whole spectrum is wonderful to listen too. The screen is bright and video on YouTube looks amazing. The cameras are so much fun. Never before have I been able to capture a group of friends using the front facing camera. Now, with the Wide Angle lens, it's a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ljuba Incredible piece of hardware
This is a masterpiece that has to be seen to fully understand the intricacy of the design. A work of art to look at and a pleasure to hold and use. HTC has gone great lengths to perfect the design and the materials used in creating this phone. Under the bonnet hardware is completely matched to the outer design performing even better than the specs would suggest. And than you fire up the camera. From this point on you will forget about your regular point&shoot camera as this phone will make it redundant! Fantastic pics, HD video, great performance. In a nutshell all you could ask for. Everything on this phone is smooth and well balanced, from the design, to the hardware and battery. Everything just simply works. If you're thinking about a Windows phone, think no further!A massive recommendation from me!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by fillip Title: Great to look at, great to hold and great to use
The summary says it all really it looks and feels awesome and it's a joy to use. Beats audio quality is excellent and the quick snapping camera produces good results although low light performance isn't the best I've seen. Only criticism I have about the handset is the flimsy feeling buttons. Everybody comments on how cool it looks and I agree with them I recommend to anyone Android or iOS to give Windows Phone 8 (especially on the 8X) a try it does everything you really need in a really slick and modern feeling way .

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sparuchuri Great phone but a little pricey
I've had my Windows Phone 8X since just after Thanksgiving. I was really excited to get it because it was so much lighter than the Lumia 920, and just felt better in my hand.
My initial impression is that the phone feels _tall_. I put it side by side with an iPhone 5 and it's actually just barely taller, which makes me think it's just the narrowness of it relative to all the Nokias that makes it look so tall. The only downside to the height is that the lock screen button is still on the top right corner, so it can be a bit far to reach.
The body is a lovely soft touch coating, in a color I have affectionately named 'blurple', but HTC calls 'California Blue'. I love when a manufacturer takes the extra initiative, and having the matching earpiece color and even the OS color is really impressive. My only real complaints are that the buttons are so subtle along the sides that it can sometimes be hard to really push them- especially the lock screen which can be a bit of a reach for small hands.
Inside, the 8X is blessed by pretty much the best Qualcomm hardware on the market. It's wicked fast, never lags, and the OS is gorgeous when rendered on the vivid LCD screen.
The only real reasons I've taken away a star are: high-ish price (with a Lumia 920 32gb running just 99, it's hard to compete), the hard to push lock button, and the fact that the soft touch on my corners has begun to wear down a little bit.
I think this is a fantastic phone that you'd be much happier owning than literally ANY Android phone on the market.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by copperalex NO NAVIGATION SYSTEM? 8GB of memory?
Ok, I just got the 8X WP8, after staying for 4 years on the iPhone and Android phones. I have to say that I LOVED the design of the phone, I got the yellow one on AT&T. Phone is light, slick, stylish and the sharp edges actually make the phone feel much thinner that it is. Really the best design out there in my opinion.
Also, great battery power. I talked on the phone all day for my work - in speaker mode, and it lasted me the entire day. The iPhone died after a few hours of speaker usage.
WP8 operating system is ok, has some stuff better than IOS/Android and some stuff worse, that can be expected. It's missing ALOT of good apps and you always have to get paid apps for the ones you get them for free in Android/IOS, but, I can live with that.
What is really mind-boggling however are the following cons for the phone:
1. IT DOESNâ€™T HAVE A NAVIGATION SYSTEM!!! It has several map apps, but they are all worse than what IOS 3.6 was!!! I was used to using my IOS navigation (without turn by turn directions), and in that one you can at least look at the screen while you are driving and navigate pretty easily. In this phone, the directions are so hard to read that you will either get killed, or lost. I have tried everything â€“ EVERYTHING â€“ to give this phone a fighting chance. Downloaded every paid app on the Windows Market that has half a decent review; but it really doesnâ€™t matter, because after you use them a few times: a) the apps crash just after launching them, or b) your GPS location doesnâ€™t update. I travel for work in different cities every week, and the GPS location was showing that I was still in Denver, while I was in San Francisco!!! The location services on the phone showed the correct location, but all the navigation systems I used (gMapsPro, TurnByTurn 3D, GPS Navigation, Garmin Pilot, etc.) do not receive this info and they do not update. Therefore, USELESS. These are paid apps I might add.
2. 8GB of memory. Should I say more? What good is a smart-phone if you canâ€™t store anything in it? The blue color comes in 16GB but the yellow one ONLY comes in 8GB. You hardly have enough room to store some apps. Forget about pictures or music. Videos are completely out of the question.
3. WP8 doesnâ€™t have a standard voice-recording app!!!
4. WP8 doesnâ€™t record the call duration on phone calls!!!
I mean, these are standard features that the iPhone 3G had, and that was almost 4 years ago!!! How can HTC not see they are soooooo far behind the competition?!? I mean, who makes these product decisions?!? Is it so difficult to offer a yellow phone in 16GB, when you already offer it in other colors? Is it so difficult to partner with a company that makes a navigation app and standardize it for HTC phones so it doesnâ€™t crash everytime you start it? Nokia has Nokia Drive (which is excellent by the way) on the Lumia 920. Why is it so difficult for HTC to get one of their own?
If HTC would fix at least the navigation and memory problem, I would switch to the X8 in an instant, but without them, I am sorry but why settle for a phone that can do so much less when there are so many other options out there at the same price nonetheless?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by fongil Great Design, Great Phone
The HTC 8X is a beautiful phone with its ergonomic and visually stimulating design with a unique approach to Windows phone 8.
The main features that I feel stand out about the 8X is the beautiful display screen, the keyboard, the outer design, the battery, and the simplicity of Windows phone 8. The screen makes colors pop and it provides great viewing angles. With the user interface of Windows, the display provides brilliant contrast. Also, a 4.3â€� screen provides the perfect fit for all users. As for the keyboard, it is the best most responsive keyboard out of every smartphone. It is fast and provides a unique experience for all who uses it. I think it is a lot better than the android keyboards. The outer design is also what makes the 8X stand out. It fits well in your hand and it redefines how a phone feels when using it. The battery is amazing. It lasts all day and then some. Lastly, the Windows phone 8 provides a simplistic, modern approach to the user interface. It allows people to multitask, spend less time checking for updates, and easy access to all their application. The transition between applications, the home screen, and different tiles are smooth and visually stimulating.
The features that I think lack on the HTC 8X are the camera, lack of main applications, and limited amount of customization. I love HTCâ€™s cameras are the best out of all smartphone carriers but the camera on the HTC 8X is not up to par. It doesnâ€™t provide the clarity that the camera other HTC phones have. Also, there arenâ€™t a great variety of customizations or effects in the camera application. Also, many applications do not support windows phone 8 like instagram. I find this difficult because I love instagram and it is hard for me to switch to a phone that lacks this application. Other applications that it lacks are Scramble with Friends and other famous games and applications. Lastly, even though you are able to resize live tiles, change tile colors, change the lockscreen picture, I think Microsoft can add more customization options on Windows phone 8. Most applications donâ€™t have the option to have a live tile.
I am a huge android fan but the HTC 8X got me to experience Windows phone 8 and appreciate it. Although there are some downsides to switching, I love my HTC 8X and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mnaeh Premium build quality Windows Phone!
In short: elegance and simplicity.
This phone clearly stands out from the WP crowd because of its outstanding design, which is already well established trademark of all HTC flagships. Discreetly curved straight lines leave the impression of serious and professional. During the first encounter with this beauty you cannot ignore how compact and firm it feels in hand, very lightweight and perfectly balanced. Its body is made of a single peace of high quality polycarbonate, coated with an extra layer which gives an impression of rubberized finish. With this in mind, together with form factor that follows 4.3" screen, it is almost impossible for this phone to slip out of your hand, and it's a pleasure to use it single-handed. For all of you who want to stand out from black classic, this phone comes in three more trendy colors, very characteristic and vibrant. Resolution, color and overall screen quality are really exceptional.
Camera is extremely fast and precise, with excellent auto focus and awesome wide angle, not yet very common for smartphones. HTC dedicated extra attention to front facing camera as well, giving it a wide angle, which is super convenient for taking self portraits. For all of you who prefer hardware "click", there is a dedicated shutter key which can also be used to unlock the phone and go straight to camera.
With moderate usage battery can hold up for two days, making the life easier for those of us who sometimes forget to connect it to charger every night. If you are into music, there is Beats Audio enhancement, doing a pretty good job for everyday casual listening. If you are a hardcore audiophileâ€¦ well, you probably won't listen to the music from your phone in the first place ;) For me, Beats is a win.
Powerful hardware makes WP runs like a breeze. Navigation through menus is fluent and you'll probably need to consult the dictionary for a word "stutter" :) Graphic experience of WP itself reminds me of gaming console interface: all graphic details are clean and simple, without too much unnecessary clutter, which elegantly goes with the great hardware, completing the superb experience.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by techman01 Great Experience
The HTC WP8X provides a welcomed unique experience in a sea of smartphones that are seemingly all the same.
The Hardware itself is thin and light, easy to use with one hand and fits in a shirt or pants pocket.
The screen is bright, reproduces colors accurately and likewise sharp. The screen has a higher PPI then the iphone 5, and you can see the difference when looking at them side by side. The Gorilla glass provides welcomed protection and added durability to the vibrant touch screen.
The HTC design team clearly thought the phone through and aimed to make it a cut above the rest in an increasingly crowded market. The color accents give it that extra personal and unique look.
The audio is above average. No static, and voices are crystal clear. The speakerphone is plenty loud. Call quality and reception was at the top of itâ€™s class and I did not suffer any dropouts. It does not support wifi calling yet, though that is a minor nuisance.
The operating system is where this phone really shines above the others. The iphoneâ€™s iOS has become stale and boring. Little has changed in the years since itâ€™s inception and is frequently playing catchup to android os and now windows phone os. The windows phone takes the phone os to the next level. Instead of boring rows of icons, it uses live tiles that provide instant information and you can launch the app directly from it.
WP8 is also a master of pulling information. The people hub links with facebook, twitter, my Exchange and LinkedIn accounts and feeds updates from my contacts together. It does not matter where the updates are coming from, information is presented cleanly and uniformly for each of my contacts. How simple; how revolutionary.
When you post an update it sends it to all your services. Something neither iOS or android currently do natively. You must download a 3rd party app to do it with them.
As far as applications, most every application that I used on Android and iOS are present on WP8 or at least an equivalent that works the same, or in some cases better.
This is a phone that needs to be seen in-person to appreciate the full experience. The operating system is fresh and unlike anything you have used before and is a pleasant relief from the antiquated iPhone and Android OS's. This phone sets the bar with innovation and people are pleasantly surprised when I put it in their hand. This is definitely a phone you need to have on your list to checkout when you pickup your next smartphone.

The Windows 8X is a beautiful looking phone. I enjoy the different color options. The sleek design and slimness makes the 8X feel and look great in the palm of my hand. The screen is bright. This phone runs fast and works smoothly. I love the camera quality and the front wide angled lens is perfect for taking selfies! My only complaint about this phone is that there are a lack of apps (Instagram) which Windows Mobile is mostly to blame. Other then that I would recommend this phone to anybody. I think this is also a great "Mom phone" for a first time smart phone user!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by chemicallove Dont buy it yet
I loved this phone. And when switching to it I was totaling willing to make some concessions. Obviously I was willing to work with a significant reduction in available apps. In fact, I used five apps regularly on my android and when I switched, windows 8 only had one of them. There were other apps that were similar just not the ones I used. However, I knew that going in, and was ok with it. Once you figure out the OS itâ€™s fun and different and itâ€™s what I wanted. The color is great, and it was light weight, fit great in my hand and in my pocket. I liked it. I wanted it and I bought. It takes great photos! I loved it so much, I bought it three times.
It just didnâ€™t work out, especially as a phone. Good olâ€™fashion voice calls, were disaster. There were days where 3 out of 5 phone calls were complete failures. The one-way-audio was a huge problem, people could hear me but I could not hear them and no amount of hanging up and redialing or restarting the phone would help. This was a known issue and software updates were supposed to take care of it. It didnâ€™t. Every one of my devices was new and out of the box, not refurbished, and was running the current software. If people I called used Bluetooth headsets, I could not hear them. I was told to tell them to power cycle their blue tooth device. Seriously!? This is very inconvenient and hard to implementâ€”especially in business. All my associates use blue tooth. But it wasnâ€™t only an audio/blue-tooth issue, it was a general audio issue, I also couldnâ€™t hear people who were using their device normally, i.e. no head set. The one way audio was a huge constant problem. Make sure you ask about any "known issues" when buyingâ€”thatâ€™s the jargon the sales reps will understand. Also the phone shuts down by itselfâ€”also a known issue. I could not pair with any bluetooth device. There is no forward button for the internet browser, super annoying but I was willing to overlook it. I was really stoked for this phone. Widows 8 is cool. But I would wait for the redesign and go with a second or third generation model when they come out. Too glitchy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Citadel12 Good stuff
Especially for those enthused with an older Windows Phone, this gadget is an impressive update. Coming from WP7 on an HTC Surround, it became clear that many people had the same issues with 7 as I did, and a great effort was put in to smooth these quips out. Though I am not an app user myself, I am quite aware that the market is simply not the same as with Android or iPhone users, but I believe that the overall experience on this Windows device was better than any comparable competitor.
Large screen, durable, lightweight, quick-responding, etc. Good stuff.

This is my first smart phone and man, what a phone. Was used to ios because of my iPod and I wanted something simple and different. Love the colors and design. Buttons along the side at little. Of a pain but with an otter box commuter case that problem runs out the door. Would like the option to change some things like from Bing to google or yahoo or what not. And the ability to turn off rotation. Would also like to set a photo for the home screen but that may happen in the future. And since the apps are new just need to keep updating them to make them easier to use. Love this phone!!!! Love the blurple color!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Razakan Excellent Phone, but needs more support from HTC
The phone and OS work quite well together. I have been using this phone since November and never regretted not buying the Lumia 920. The only complaints I have are dirrected to HTCs support of the WP8 OS. I had a HD7 before this phone and in the 2.5 years I've used HTC WP devices theyhave only have 6 exclusive apps. Compared to the 50+ apps that Nokia has added in the past year, it makes me feel HTC doesn't really care about the WP users yet.
However the 8x is a beautiful phone and I love the feel of the phone. The Beats audio is only when plugged into a headphone jack. On a higher scale range I would give this phone a 8 / 10.

This phone hardware has every quality you can ever think of. The processor speed is great, and the web interface and migration are also great. What I don't understand is why Windows cannot have an independent YouTube application, instead of directing users to the mobile YouTube site. Most videos on YouTube these days do not allow mobile license devices to stream...Honestly I was a bit frustrated. Other than that this phone has the best integration and connectivity you can ever think of. You really donâ€™t need most social media third party app in order to use this phoneâ€¦and if you are an enterprise person, this phone is the best for you based on usage and security wise. The security is superb, the calibration is smooth, and the best of all, It never freezes for even 0.0001m/s.

I am greatly disappointed with my HTC Windows 8 phone. I enjoy the Windows functioning system however, the actual phone is aweful. I've had nothing but problems with it lately. I have to put it on speaker whenever talking on the phone, otherwise my cheek will press the end call button and I lose the call. I keep getting a sim card error and if I turn the phone off and back on the error goes away. If I put it in my purse, many times it will change itself to vibrate only so I miss calls. Even the touch screen doesn't seem to work like it should. I have to press the tile two or three times to get to the app. I also have problems getting it to transform from horizontal screen to verticle. It may be my phone is just not functioning correctly. As of right now, I will not be purchasing another HTC phone in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DaPuzzledWindowman Pretty Decent but Doesnt Meet my expectations
The HTC 8x is a pretty decent phone. Tte camera is good however white balance software in the phone seems to turn papers with text on them completely white if at a certain distance. The is decent, but I am disapointed on the use because the battery drains quickly while in use. Switching to this phone was a bad idea because it doesn't meet my expectations when it comes to the app store and sound. The sound does sound good, however because the speaker is on the back ofthe phone, the sound goes towards the back of the phone and it gets difficult to read, making it hard formy friends to try and hear a video I try to show them. phone is definitely not durable because the paint starts to chip off the sides if it isnt in a , and the glass can get scratched even though HTC may call it Gorilla Glass 2, what a shame. I would recomment this product to light smartphone users, not heavy users. Last thing, the Microsot Office Software doesn't enable you to create your own power points so it is useless to even try to work on you presentation for a class presentation, MS Office was the main reason I got the phone and it has disapointed me in the power point aspect.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best phone I have used
I used to have a Droid Razr, and I loved it. I never thought I would get a phone that I liked more. It was a lean, mean, efficiency machine. I then got Windows 8 for my home PC and fell in love with the new interface. When I came due for an upgrade I thought "why not get this nice phone and if I don't like it I can just sell it and keep my droid." Well, I ended up selling the droid and keeping this phone instead.
Though Droid and iOS have more apps (for now) that Windows phones, I found ever app I ever needed. Plus, you can download xbox live games and they count toward your xbox profile for points (even many of the free ones). Though I do wish you could transfer games you already have to the phone (YOU CANNOT DO THAT) I understand why they don't. It is a different console, it would be like saying "well I own the game for PC so I should get a free PS3 AND Xbox 360 version too." Not the same product.
Further, all the apps I use have the streamlined, metro styling of the Windows 8 operating system. IF you DO NOT LIKE Windows 8 DO NOT GET this phone.
My one complaint on apps is that the facebook app has some limitations involving groups and events (you cannot use all features on these pages) otherwise it is wonderful.
Ease of Use: I put 5 stars for this because FOR ME it was easy to get used to. That being said, if you are used to an iPhone interface of a Droid interface and have never used Windows 8 there WILL BE A LEARNING CURB. Just be patient, explore what doing different things does. (one trick I like is if you HOLD the back button, it will let you pan through all of the apps you currently have running in the background. Great for going back and forth from messages to games or social networking sites). There are plenty of tutorials online to help you get started and the built-in tutorial is also quite informative.
With moderate to heavy usage (I use my phone all day at work as an mp3 player and also use FB and texting all day) you can typically get through an entire day on one charge. To me, that is more than adequate. Also, as an added bonus it is compatible with the FatBoy charging pillow.
It will take some getting used to. The lock button is on top as opposed to the side. Was a strange adjustment but I got used to it. Also, you will probably accidentally take a lot of pictures of random things at first while getting used to the location of the camera button. The camera, by the way, takes fantastic pictures for typical point-and-click captures.
1.5ghz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. That is plenty for a phone. Sure you aren't going to be playing any Call of Duty on here, but again... it is a phone.
Definitely a 5 star from me. I have had no disappointment with my phone. Fairly durable (dropped it a few times and managed to dent the camera button somehow but still works fine), great battery life, nice sound quality, and does everything you would ever need a smart phone to do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ALT1 First smart phone
This is my first mobile phone and have had this for close to 6 months now.
I was waiting for ages for Microsoft to release a decent windows phone because the few other smart phones I occasionally used were difficult to find my way around without knowing anything about the way they operated (and I work in IT). The functionality offered by the Windows Phone 8 seemed to have all the features and functions I was looking for in a smart phone.
When I walked into the store to check out the new mobiles available this one just felt better than the Nokia (and I'm not interested in photos). After being shown where the list of apps were it was a very quick and intuitive process to learn. The simplicity of the design of the phone with straightforward use of the operating system makes it an unbeatable combination for me.
A few times at work I've been asked if someone has contacted me and before I would be searching through my computer to work this out. Now I get my mobile out and in less than 10 seconds I have all the latest communication I have had with that person in any way (phone, sms, email and whatever other apps are linked in to the persons profile).
The only bad thing I can think of is I don't like the fact I can't take out the battery my self (not that I have needed to but I like to have the option).

overall good perf for a lower price than other (it does beat a 920/5/8) the only cons i find (except the 1800mAh battery) is : the screen is a bit too small (im more used of 4.5" and more) but with the 720p resolution its quite good.
same hardware as a 920 a bit smaller screen/camera and cheaper ? who want a nokia :) (i tested the 720/820/920 the shape of the 8x is better at my taste)
