It is down to what you prefer.
I have been with my 8X for a week now, and for me it is difficult to imagine that there is a phone out there that is better than it, at this moment in time.
Before that, i had the HD7 which i still absolutely adore after using it for almost 2 years, and generously passed down to my mother which also seems to love it.
So i think that, in my opinion HTC make really good Windows Phone 8 (and 7) devices, and that the 8X is truly a very pleasant phone to use.

Cheap "Taiwan" copy. Obviously some Nokia Fanboys are disillusioned. First. HTC was the first company to make Windows Phones with Win. CE. Second, HTC currently makes one of the best Android phones with the OneX+. Third. "Made in Taiwan" is better quality than "Made in China". Fourth. Nokia's own Lumia Factories are in China. Who is having the most issues here? L920 or the 8X? The Nokia is!

Nokia messed up yet another launch, I was ready to get the 920 for all my families contracts but the went exclusive with EE in the uk. So I got ride of our lumias and now have the 8x which I am very pleased with! It is so much lighter than my old lumia 'brick' 900! Lol

I would hardly call the 8x the best smartphone available today. There are numerous tasks that it can't perform compared to other smartphones. I have had my 8x for a week. While it is an excellent phone in its own right. It is missing so many features of Android and IOS. I don't think I can wait another 5 to 6 years for Microsoft to catch up. I love Windows Phone and have used them since the first Treo running Windows Mobile, but my Android device can do so much more I don't know If I can give it up and keep the 8x. I will need to decide soon as my 14 days are almost up.

Maybe you should start off trying to solve 1 + 1 so you don't get a migraine from all that haha.

In some ways I have to agree with you. But I would say that the 8X is one of the best business, every day normal use smartphones. Sure WP8 needs some more features, but the 8X certainly has a great feel. My girlfriend just switched to a HTC OneX+, speed wise... the 8X keeps it up for regular work and also for the camera. What I miss is more memory. I will never use an Android phone for business, Android software just collects too much information on you. But for the regular Joe... Android is fine. I have one co-worker who is a total iPhone5 freak... (Apple is the best...) but there is no way I will convert to anything under 4.3 inches of screen, but I could imagine having a OneX+ as my private phone until I can get my hands on a 64Gb HTC WP8 device. (Hopefully by next June if HTC sells enough 8X units).
