    I didn't think id ever say this, but I'm torn between the HTC 8X (Yellow) and the Lumia 920 (Yellow). Ive been scouring the forums looking at what people think about both phones, and i honestly don't know what to do. Im in Australia, and my local store which i have pre-ordered at, will be selling the Lumia 920 unlocked for $829. I just found an online retailer which has the HTC 8X for $599 with free shipping and have just confirmed that they do indeed have stock.

    I dont know if I'm being impatient as the 32gb of the Lumia is so much better but i really want to upgrade my L900... now

    should i wait until the 15th to get my Lumia or bite the bullet and get the 8X now?

    The 8X is a good choice but I would wait! A couple of weeks is worth getting the right phone that you may use for years. You should feel both in your hands before making the call IMO. Wouldn't want to get your hands on a 920 in a couple of weeks then regret the decision :)

    Patience is always advised as a phone is something you may get buyer's remorse on.

    Think about what you like the most about your 900 and made the decision accordingly. both phones are miles ahead of it.

    The 8x yellow is so awesome tho love that tennis ball color and it's matte, but can't blame you for wanting the spec monster 920 not much can stand against that spec sheet

    Its an issue for the HTC 8X. No stores will have them until the end of the month. I'll only have to wait until next week to get my lumia so ill get that. I've been happy with my lumia 900 that I've ditched my iphone5 for it. So the lumia 920 will be even better

    As usual, no one has asked the OP what his wants and needs are for a device. That will determine which one he should get more than our own preferences.

    This should be the only deciding factor in a purchasing decision.

    Let's make this simple: what do you want from a phone, what is important to you, what do you need to have, and what can you live without?

    My decision has been made. But my needs are a screen size between 4.3-4.5". Premium feel when holding it (I don't like light phones). A good camera, but most pictures will be taken during the day. And the most storage I can get. I can live with 16gb, but after having an iPhone5 w/64gb I kinda want to be carefree about my storage again. Reading what I have just written, the lumia 920 is the way to go. As others have said, I would most probably regret my decision seeing as I will be using the phone for the next year or so. But saying that, the 8X is one sexy device!

    I was convinced I wanted a Lumia 920 but now I think I will just wait until I can play with both phones in the store and see which one I like better hands on. The biggest negative IMO against the HTC is the smaller memory.

    So true. Advocating patience is one but what phone suits the individual is key now. Is it apps? Customization? The latest hardware specs? Tangible, standout hardware features? Or a fast experience with a modern interface?
