    I am so excited for mine to arrive in the ma tomorrow. My wife and I, in our 20's, finally made the move to buy our first smartphones. We felt like dinosaurs when we were ordering the phone becasue we are upgrading from flip phones. It was about time, and I did not want to go with an Iphone.

    As I anticipate the arrival of these phones, I am doing a lot of research into cases. I plan on either being an otterbox defender or incipio case. I have a bad habit of dropping my phone and need allt he protection I can get. Anyone have any insight into the incipio dual pro and if it compares to the otterbox?

    On a related note, I am looking for a clutch/wallet case for my wife, and was wondering if anyone had found something that was elegant but fun and was suitable for this phone?

    I am from the Philippines and I finally got mine last Thursday! I've really been wanting this phone and had a hard time searching for its availability here! But finally I got my hands on it!

    I'm really happy with my 8X! Very good deal!

    Just picked mine up, fed ex was scheduled to deliver to my home today, but the package arrived 'after couriers departed' so took a little time off work to go get it. Its sitting next to me charging, cant wait to get it home and actually turn it on for real! I stared at the 'lets get started' screen, how crisp it was, then went and looked at my Thunderbolt running an WP8 launcher. I swear I think I saw it shed a tear! Form really rocks now that I can freely hold it! Looking forward to setting it up, especially with my xbox account. Oh, and yea, I got the blue. The red looked pukeish to me, and the black was too ordinary. Verizon carrier by the way.

    I got my gray and yellow 8x yesterday and I am enjoying it immensely! The more I use it the more awesome it gets. I am coming from, in reverse order, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid Bionic, HTC Droid Incredible. The Bionic was my favorite of those 3 and the Nexus, the one I just gave up for the 8x, was my least favorite. It was losing its connectivity 4 to 5 times a day and having to be rebooted. I read all I could get my hands on before deciding to try a different OS and decided on the 8x. I really like it so I sincerely hope it doesn't disappoint in the reliability department! Praying for a long and healthy relationship with this handsome phone. :-)

    I just got mine delivered yesterday. I miss my Trophy because it was such a great phone, but the feeling is already starting to dissipate from how incredible the 8X is. Awesome phone!

    Trust me don't think you will see that again...the seller thought it was broken because the display didn't come on. So I offered $175 thinking I would have to fix it. I found out the battery was completely dead on it. After a hard rest and 2-3 hours to charge it, it works perfect. And it's still under warrany and with my insurance with extended warranty, I have a 2 year warranty on it (it was picked up in a verizon store), this was truly a epic deal...

    One of the better deals I have gotten on eBay in years.

    Alrighty, got my 8X on Friday the 4th, so this is my 4th day with it, and I am really really happy with my decision to go this way instead of DNA. I am especially happy with Beats! Can't believe how much of a difference it really makes. Ran the same song, same earbuds on both my old TB and then on this, night and day! Was worried about the lack of true customization, but the tiles just seem to work, I can't explain how they manage to do exactly what I need. And maybe thats what it is, they do what I need, not what I want (which often isn't what I need!) I really enjoy the live tiles for xbox and the music player, the animations are great. Setting up tiles for groups and individuals are also crazy good.

    What surprises me is that I don't need as many apps as I had on my TB. The integration of social networks really makes a difference. And the Office and One Note also reduce the need for apps. I haven't put any games on yet, want to find ones that integrate with my xbox, the whole "take it on the road" thing.

    Again, really impressed with the whole OS, its really a major improvement to either iOS or Android! Really pleased with the whole system, design and operations work great.

    Im jerry, and this is my windows phone!
