    I had my first one replaced about 3-4 days after I got it due to a bad radio. I got it shortly after launch. The second one has been rock solid.

    Why? What's wrong with the 8x? Both manufacturers rushed to market and have quirks. Some people prefer the form factor on the 8x, and the hardware is just as good.

    And yes, I've used both. I still have my L900, but the 8x was just so much better to use than the 920 for me.
