    The HTC 8X has a 720x1280 screen with a ratio of 16:9. It is because of this, black bars are shown when a WP7 app is running as WP7 apps run at 15:9 ratio. The Nokia Lumia 920 does not show bars because it has a 768x1280 screen res which is 15:9 ratio. So it is a shame we have such a wonderful phone that some apps are not true 720p full screen. I took the challenge to research as much as possible to discover full screen apps and games.

    Please suggest other apps and games and I will update this opening post.

    Thank you, love this thrad ... Hope it will be pinned for 8x users to see.
    Yet in the social section, Whatsapp is not running in full screen, its just that it has a black theme. And there is a cool app called "tweet it !" which runs in full res.
    Hope that I helped.

    I hate that they started supporting multiple resolutions, how obnoxious. Although with Android's free-for-all, as well as the iPhone's thinning, at least its not something the competitors have an advantage or selling point in.
