    I'm on T-Mobile and as usual we get screwed and AT&T gets the better Lumia device. But since no one ever says anything about the 810, only the HTC 8X and Lumia 920, I want some help with this decision from those that have them.

    I watched the video of the Lumia 920 vs the 8X at the Deadmau5 show, and It's obvious HTC still cannot make a camera with video recording with clear sound. And they've been at the lowest tier of my choice of phone manufacturers ever since I had an Aria on AT&T back forever ago.

    I had the Lumia 710 for a long time, and it was the biggest piece of garbage I ever used in my life. The battery life sucked, the camera sucked, and windows phone did not run smooth. Things froze, the screen would become unresponsive, I had it replaced atleast 6 times before I switched the the HTC Radar 4G. I like the Radar, it's probably one of the only HTC devices I've actually enjoyed. Now for the question.

    My mom and dad also have a a lumia 710 and they HATE it to death. My dad prefers android, I prefer android in most cases, but I'm very prone to rooting and flashing, so I've been sticking with Windows phone so I can actually preserve my texts, photos, apps, etc.

    NOW FOR THE REAL QUESTION AFTER MY RANT.

    Questions for the Lumia 810:
    1. How is the battery life?
    2. Does it record and not sound like white noise?
    3. Does it actually perform properly unlike the Lumia 710?

    Questions for the HTC 8X:
    1. How is the battery life?
    2. I know it takes extremely good pictures, and records clear but sound recording is **** poor, but how is the shutter speed?
    3. Is there any advantage to getting another HTC phone if I'm usually disappointed in the brand?


    Or would I be better off buying an unlocked Lumia 920 and dealing with EDGE here in Norman, Oklahoma until T-Mobile gets their refarmed 1900Mhz network running here.

    As far as the Lumia 810 goes im mostly happy with it. My friend has the 710 and I can see why you hate it. But the 710 and 810 are milds different.

    Battery life is amazing to me. I have multiple email accounts set up and syncing automatically. I have brightness set to high. I listen to music tons. I play games and I am reading. Not to mention I tend to constantly be talking or texting and GPS is on. My battery usually lasts me about 10-12 hours easily before I get the low battery warning. That's with extremely heavy use. In fact as I type this I realize I am using my phone a lot lol.

    I haven't taken any bids but camera wise I love this camera compared to his 710 and its better than my old galaxy s3

    As far as HTC goes I used to be an avid fan and I think the 8x is nice and all but I'm not impressed with their hardware over nokias. The 810 feels better built and it seems like a lot of wasted space on the 8x even though they are the same size.

    I've owned 8 different HTC models and I'm sick of their issues that factor from badly made hardware.

    I definitely recommend trying the 810 out
