There are some pretty good limited time prices for htc 8x right now (Best Buy, Target, Sam's Club, etc). By purchasing now I could save a lot of money. That being said, there seems to be a TON of issues with the 8x (rebooting, contacts, email, etc).
Is it advisable to purchase the phone now and save the money? Perhaps it is a better idea to wait and see if/when these issues are identified/fixed. I'm honestly not sure what to do.

Like I just posted in my thread about the target deal, my shipment is awaiting inventory to arrive... Is it new inventory with different Quality standards....? Here's hoping. Probably not. But by the time I get it, the software issues SHOULD be resolved either by HTC, Microsoft, or both.
I think you're in the same boat either way. I know these prices won't be around forever.

I'd buy it now if you want it now. My 8x is perfect so far with no rebooting, gmail issues, etc... (knocking on wood). The majority of people are having no major problems with their phones, but people with problems will turn to the forums to voice their concerns and look for advice on fixes. As a result, it appears as though there is widespread issues when many people are chugging along just fine.

The 8X has less issues than all the Nokia's. I have two, we now have 4 in our office, they work. The reboot problems are limited to some phones that have the wrong firmware for the carrier they are being used with. If you get one like that, you simply exchange it!*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***
