    I wanna make the switch from iOS to WP8 & I'm really excited about it. I currently have the i4s. I really wanted the Lumia 920 but I'm not gonna leave Verizon. Any suggestions on weather I should go with the Lumia 822 or the HTC 8x??? Price point doesn't matter

    I would like to hear your thoughts an pros & cons of each device. Or should I wait for the ATIV or a possible version of the 920 (if that would even happen)

    Honestly, I prefer the 822. It's super fast, and it's a Nokia. Way better support than HTC.

    Let me ask u this, I like the specs of the 822 but I didn't get a hands on yet. In the videos I seen it looks a little cheap & plasticky. How does it feel in the hands? Does it feel solid?

    If I were on Verizon I would get the 8X. The only Nokia exclusive I use is drive and that is coming to other WP8 phones in the future. I just can't use a low rez screen on a phone anymore.

    I'd say wait to see what the Samsung Odyssey is. The rumor thread on here claims it's a fairly high end device. You might enjoy what it has to offer.

    Yeah those were my 2 concerns with the 822. The resolution & build quality. Any thoughts on the ATIV Odyssey?

    Yeah I might just wait & c what the Odyssey is packing. Hopefully it's soon, getting pretty bored with the i4s lol. An 3G is driving me crazy anymore, not to mention the 3.5" display

    That's a good idea.

    WP8 and synching cannot be used on the same sentence. Go to this thread and feel the pain: Holy crap, syncing with WP8 is a trainwreck.

    I hate to chime into the thread since I am neither a Verizon customer nor own an 822..

    However, I went to best buy yesterday and i played with both the 8x and 822......My intention was to get the 8x however after realizing that the Nokia was more well-built, I was going to get the 822. It didn't feel cheap to me at all....Unfortunately best buy was out of 822, so i went to wal-mart and got myself an 810 with t-mobile.

    It is amazing phone and i love the fact it allows SD cards and you can easily connect to your comptuer and simply copy the files over...the HTC 8X does not allow memory cards I believe.....
    It's a good phone and i'd recommend the 822 to you.

    I'll be honest, I raged on boards about the horrible lineup Verizon was putting out. I liked the specs and look of the HTC but having a Thunderbolt and a Touch previous they both had weak battery life. Check out the 8x board and you will see tons of people complaining about the battery. I wanted the 920 and like you thought the 822 looked like crap. I had convinced myself to wait for the Samsung Odyssey.

    I went to the store and it totally changed my mind. The 822 phone is solidly built. The buttons are in the perfect spots. I can do everything easily with one hand. There are several exclusive apps (which unless Nokia is offering a service with them, I think its crap) I use: ESPN Fantasy Football, Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Words with Friends, etc.

    I got the black, because I like the matte. I did find it a bit slipper than I liked. I bought the Otter box and unfortunately it removes all the styling. Rather than a Ferrari it is now a HipHop Hummer. Still like it as I have no fear of dropping it.

    The screen res is a non-issue for me. Again, I complained about this, the HTC is a better screen. You can see the difference but its less of an issue in day to day use. The camera is also a bit slower than I like.

    The best part was I got Best Buy to honor Wal-Mart's $0.00 price. Pretty sweet deal.

    If you have to have the best, wait for the Samsung or the Lumia to get on Verizon. If you are willing to sacrifice a couple high end features for a great phone, get the Lumia 822. I couldn't be happier.

    Just to offer a second point, most people are happy with iTunes sync to WP. It's those NOT using iTunes that are (ironically) upset.

    If you are a Best Buy reward zone silver member you have 60 days to return your purchase. Kind of a nice way to try out some devices and really see what you want to get into. Myself personally, I WAS all pre-ordered for the 8x and decided to give the 822 a go. I've canceled the 8X pre-order and kept the 822. A far superior device for my needs.

    I have been reading the reviews on Verizon Wireless and am really surprised how people love the 822. If you can get it for $0, even better.

    I have and so far really like the 822 plus I wanted to have a replaceable battery and stuck a 64 gig card card in it. No complaints thus far.

    If Verizon would have had an 8X in stock when I got my 822 I might have gotten that instead. It feels much better in the hand than the 822. With that said I'm not disappointed in the 822 at all. The only complaint I have is that it is very slippery.

    Did you get the gloss or matte finish?

    I have the white one. I don't know if the black or gray has the same feel, but white is glossy and very slippery. As bad as I hate to I'm going to put an otterbox on it when the white version comes out.

    yeh the black and gray are matte finished. I liked the feel of those a bit better!

    I could never buy an otterbox, just unnecessary. Too big and heavy.
