i'm getting the HTC 8S this week on Wind Mobile. and is my first WP8. i'm actually excited to get this little guy. i love everything about it (minus NFC and no app2sd). other than the few issues ive seen posted here, is this a smart choice to grab this handset?

I would get WP8 with at least 8GB of storage, like the Lumia 520 or 620. 4GB in the HTC 8S is very limited. You won't have room for apps.Favorite Apps: Windows Phone News, WPCentral, TV Series, Flash Sports, myTube, Metrotube, wpTorrent, Yxplayer WP8, Moliplayer Pro, Package Tracker, NZBConnect, Media Browser, Audiotica 4, MP3 finder, User Agent Switcher, UC Browser, GetThemAll, Amazing Music, Music+, MetroRadio, FlashVideo, Navigon, WebApps, Note It

i made the switch from android, it is a good phone, feels great, looks amazing and runs smooth, if you are an app freak, it might be a problem, but if you are a decent kind of app fanatic, i say it is ok, i installed about 25 apps and still got about 600mb free, the only problem is the well known "other" storage group for using a lot of memory, but it frees up if you need it, so i don't really worry about storage, it's ok.

I have an 820 and feel even 8gb isn't sufficient; not even close. After a couple of months of usage, I didn't have space for Asphalt7 (a must have for any gamer). After resetting and installing just this and a few small apps, I'm down to just 1.x GB again not enough space for say The Dark Knight Rises.
Getting an HTC 8S is like getting a 50" TV that can't play HD - so much potential but almost pointless.

i understand the storage is limited, but i will be using a 32GB microSD. so i have my fingers crosses there will be some app2sd support in the future (if not oh well). i also like the size of it and the price tag is very appealing. $338.00 CAD out the door.

Take a look at the review on AAWP with which I completely agree.
For that price, the L720 or L620 is the much better choice.

also anyone with windows 8 care to share their experience with the WP/W8 integration?

B) Like I said, there is no guarantee you will get that many apps. Some have problems getting 10 apps installed. It depends what you use.
C) Then you've only read superficial reviews and most definitely not the one I linked to.
Your choice though. Just trying to help.

i did read the review, and ive actually gotten the chance to hold one. tbh i actually liked it. the size is great, and the OS seem to of run without any issue. i do see odd moments that it does chug, but not enough to bother me.
just because a phone doesn't have high end specs, or what it should of had, doesn't mean its a bad phone. i do appreciate the advice though :)

Just to be clear though, I'm not at all a person who says a phone must have high-end specs, particularly when it comes to WP8. Even the lower end devices tend to run great. I just know a few people who returned the 4S because it didn't work out for them, for exactly the reasons stated in the review.
Anyway, good luck!
