    Lots of phones have that issue. I recall my BlackBerry Storm and an LG flip I had all had that fake shutter sound. I had to put the BB in Silent mode(there was no helping the LG) so I wouldn't hear the noise. Maybe just tapping volume down, then putting the 8X on silent will do it? I haven't tried it yet and don't have it handy, otherwise I'd test this out for you.

    Camera shutter sound setting is in Settings -> Ringtones + sounds . You sure it's not there?

    I have two unlocked 8X. Both are good phones, but HTC keeps updating some firmware on it on a regular basis. The last update has seriously diminished the battery of my two 8X... so much that I went and got me a Lumia 920 with all the updates. While the 8X is the more practical phone, the 920 is more capable and probably worth the extra weight for now. The issue I have now with the 8X is that when it switches from one network to the next, it hands up and drains the battery. You see, I am on two networks which are with the same provider but which have different names but the same APN settings. The 8X has issues with that since a firmware update last week. While my 920 is happy and has no issues with it.

    Uninstall HTC hub then see if the drain stops. It did for me.

    And the Qi charging seems like a very minor convenience until you are in a situation where you need to actually plug the phone in. I feel spoiled now :)

    I will say this, if you have to have DIRE Apps and games. Go to windowsphone.com and go check the site for apps BEFORE you switch. If they have the ones you need then I say pull the trigger, its refreshing. I been using since WP7, my OG Focus and I love it. I will also state that I use mostly the core apps, and maybe one or 2 like wpcentral app and my chase bank app oh and Metrotube(god of youtube apps) but other than that Im satisfied. I was same way on Android and iOS just cores.
