Well even though the 8X is the official Windows Phone 8 device and is getting mad recognizion everywhere, this board is Lumia's land. So since nobody is going to bother uploading reviews and stuff. I'll be posting them and giving it quick summarys for the lazy people.
HTC 8X review: Windows Phone 8's compact flagship -- Engadget
Engadget is head over heels over this device, but doesn't love the OS.
There's no doubt that HTC's Windows Phone 8X is a worthy flagship. It combines phenomenal looks, solid construction and high-end specs in a relatively compact and delightfully colorful package
PhoneDog video review
Aaron love the look of the device and the improvements made on WP8 but didn't like how they kept most of the annoyances from WP7.
Phone Arena review: http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/HT...view_id3168#1-
This one is a huge multiple part review and video review. They were disappointed by the camera, Battery Life and OS. Loved the screen and great call quality and reception. (The latter being a feature every reviewer seems to love)
Ultimately, the HTC 8X is surely a strong competitor in the Windows Phone camp, but as we look at the broader spectrum, it pales in comparison to some of the smartphone elites out there.
Cnet review and video review:http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/...-35454632.html
In the video version, the reviewer constantly call Tiles "widgets", which to be frankly that's what they are.
The normal review is detailed and test lots of things the user wants to know, it offers voice samples and stuff.
*I highly recommend reading this one*
They also working on a comparison between this phone and the Lumia 920.
Wired review: http://www.wired.com/reviews/2012/10/htc-8x/
First, the 8X is more contoured and lighter than the Lumia 920; the latter is quite heavy and a solid brick of a phone, and the 8X is easier to pick up and pocket.
They love how thin and sturdy the device feels and the FFC camera, hated the fact that onlike Nokia has transport service and the camera was meh.
HTC has delivered something Windows Phone has needed for a while: a phone you’d actually want.
Gizmodo review: (Gizmodo is sadly down because of hurricane Sandy, but I managed to nab the review but using the cache' page)
Gizmodo seem pretty positive about the device, the loved the screen and build. The camera didn't rocked their world sadly, which is pretty surprising considering is the same as the OneX so maybe there's some software issue that needs to be fix.
Nokia has been alone on the vanguard of worthwhile Windows Phone hardware for a while now. But that's no longer the case. Here's HTC's 8X.
This reviewer loves how fast and fluid the device is, and surprisinly likes the OS also. But he calls the lack of apps an Achilles heel.
This is the first phone in ages to evoke involuntary gasps at first sight
Here's also review list site.
