    Personally I'd go with the 820 for a number of reasons. The Nokia exclusive apps and Nokia's commitment to Windows Phone are two big ones. The only thing you really miss out on is the higher resolution of the 8X. I'm just not a fan of HTC's stuff in general though.

    As for the "freezing constantly" or not being responsive, I haven't heard that. That is not a normal thing though, what you read is someone who had a problem with their specific phone. If you look for problems you will find them with ANY phone. Google "HTC 8X problems" or "Lumia 820 problems" or "iPhone 5 problems" or any phone + "problems" and you will find the same kind of thing. Don't let it dissuade you from buying an 820.

    Not at all. Even before the Portico update, my 820 was responsive and reliable.

    I have the 820 and its great - love the expandable storage to hold my music. However, if someone had a mint 8X and offered it to me straight up in a trade, I'd do it. The 8X is just so much sexier. Its also much lighter - the 820 is surprisingly heavy for a phone as small as it is.

    One benefit of the 820 though is the replaceable covers - if you damage your cover or want a new color, change it out. And they aren't very expensive.

    Looks wise I'd go 8X - if Nokia's software is important to you (its meh to me) and you need expandable storage, go for the 820.

    I have the Lumia 820 and really like it. The Drive application speaks for itself, if you travel a lot, it's a big advantage that you can download the maps for free and navigate offline. And genereally the phone is fast, easy to handle and looks great :)

    I got the 820, sold it, got the blue 8X and am as happy as I can be. (though I admit I'd be happier if I had the red one!)

    No one said something good about 8X, that's so weird I mean c'mon..What I can say about 8X is that:
    -you have better audio, both speakers and headphones, the built-in amplifier does the job very well.
    -the camera on HTC 8X takes good pictures
    -it is very soft at touch, feels amazingly good in hand, there is no plastic! which is great.
    -the battery lasts at least 24hours with e-mail account, fb twitter and other things with connectivity on
    -at the apps side the only exclusive apps worth to mention is the well known weather from HTC and some photo filters app.

    Now what I know to be the down side of Lumia 820 is that from my experience and I know for sure that Amoled screens have the burn-in effect. What does this mean is that if you have an icon placed in the same spot for a very long time (more than 6 months), there will be a shadow under that icon. For ex when you have a white screen or another app opened with white background or grey you will see for example the shadow of battery icon or 3G signals or WiFi even though you shouldn't.

    I went for the 820 over the 8x mainly because it was more affordable and the Nokia apps are a big bonus. I like the looks of the phone and it feels reassuringly weighty rather than bulky. If you throw in the changeable covers and access to battery and memory then it was an easy decision. Ive had it a month and no issues with it so far.

    I'm not sure its a good idea to bring a US specific phone like the 810 (T-Mobile) or 822 (Verizon) to india , The different Radios might be inconvenient ! I have a friend brought a T-Mobile SideKick to Holland\Netherlands & Her phone made & received calls just fine , but NO Internet other than Wi-Fi ! No 2G, No 3G , No Edge .... etc because it had a different Radios !

    I guess it might be safer to buy an India-Specific Lumia 820 phone, You know it will work & If God forbid something happened to the phone , you can service it on the warranty !

    I had the 822 on Verizon, but after two troublesome devices Verizon let me swap to an 8X. The 822 is a great phone and I'm sure the 810 is also, but to me unless you really need the SD card storage the 8X is the way to go. The 822 has a bright and vivid screen, but after using the 8X I can tell a difference in the crispness of the display. The camera in the 8X is also better than the 822. I was able to take good pics with the 822, but it took more work to get them than with the 8X. I found some of the Nokia exclusive apps fairly useful, namely Nokia music and Creative Studio, but I am not really missing them in the 8X. Either way you go you will have a nice phone that you will enjoy to a while, so you can't go wrong.

    Play with both of them & see which one you like & fits your needs more !
    - Do You need an SD card ? or can settle on 16GB (around 14GB) ?
    - Do You Need a Removable Battery ? or Not ?

    I played with both of them (plus the Lumia 620 , 800 , 900 , 920) & I picked the 8X !
    I liked the 8X more , I loved the design , the build quality , the finish , the screen , the speaker , the camera ... etc ! & to be honest I wanted to try HTC since the HD2 ! (I was a Motorola User)
    The Lumia 820 was nice , but it was too wide for me & I don't like AMOLED screens , they hurt my eyes after using them more than a few minutes !


    Both are priced the same here in Saudi Arabia !

    I bought a Black 8X , but I was hoping for the LimeLight Yellow one , but it wasn't released here ... neither is the red one !

    Just a heads up , keeping the 8x clean is a ******

    Also , Regarding the exclusive apps thing , if they are gonna effect your decision :
    Look up the Nokia exclusive apps in whatever platform you are using , See if you need them , or you can live without them !

    I have a 820 and don't like it at all: its heavy, huge and slips out of my hands. This is one of the reasons I broke it, and my insurance offers me a HTC win 8x. Im not sure if I should go for it, but it is lighter so that will be an advantage. Im wondering what people think, and if this will be a good deal for me.

    A BIG NO NO for the 820 is the screen: accidently left in my pocket with keys ONCE and left 2 huge scratches. HTC has monster screen, so im thinking of going ahead and ordering that one...any cons?
