    Out of the devices in our home I love the 8x. The screen and the design is gorgeous! It fits nicely in the hand and it feel like a quality device. If you have a galaxy 3s you will notice a huge difference in look and feel. The sound is super especially with decent headphones and the camera is much better than I thought it would be. The pics are great and the only complaint I cannot expand the memory on it, but not too bad unless you have the 8gb version.

    I love my 8X. I've had a few of them. It feels great in the hand. Sound awesome plugged in (I EQ my music before I sync). I love my apps. Use 40gb/mo with videos/movies. The display just POPS!!

    Only thing I miss from my gs3 is screen, SD card and a couple apps.

    Thanks for the responses ����

    I've read a lot of contradictory stuff about battery life. Is it a problem? Also, how much storage is available to the user on the phone? Thanks again.
    I have 14.56GB to use on my 8x.

    I am using HTC 8x from december till now.This is Amazing phone having great camera & lookwp8x-f2-1.png
    I have had no problems with this phone and it's been great. I have it synced with my Microsoft account, which stores all settings, passwords, documents, pictures, and more in the cloud. Between my Windows 8 desktop, my Xbox, and my 8X, the synergy that comes with Microsoft's ecosystem is the best I have experienced, far better than Google and Apple's

    Been using the 8x for nearly two months having been with iPhone since day one.

    8x is frankly a gorgeous phone, vastly superior imho in build quality to my iPhone 5, much better audio quality and the WP8 os knocks ios out.

    I considered various Nokias but the sheer bulk of them were off putting.
    The 8x is slim and light with nice tapered edging.
    The iPhone 5 despite being smaller feels like a boxy brick in comparison.

    I'd like to thank everyone who posted in this thread. After a bit of consideration I decided to get a Lumia 920 instead. I got it yesterday and I'm loving it.

    What a shame. I bought an 8X last weekend and it has simply blown me away. I knew it would be better than my old phone but I really wasn't expecting it to be such a huge leap up. The Lumia920 looks like a solid choice, too, but it is still a lot more expensive than the 8X and far too bulky for me.

    The shop I used just reduced it to only $100 more than the 8X.

    I'm sure they're both great. The extra 16 gigs is the main reason I picked the. Nokia, and the camera's reputation.

    Of the current WP8 devices available, I've owned a Lumia 920, an 820, and now an HTC 8X. The 8X is...ok. The power and volume buttons are definitely a pain in the *** compared to the Lumia buttons, but I've never liked the power button placement on the Lumias.

    The 920 and 820 both seem smoother navigating around the UI. The 8X feels good in the hand I suppose, better than the 920 for sure. The 820 has more heft than the 8X, but I think it fits better in the hand. The problem with the 820 is that the screen scratches WAY too easily, easier than the 8X.

    And then you get to the problem of not having a Nokia device - they have better software and better warranty support. I think if I could trade someone my 8X straight up for a 920 I would, and probably would for a mint condition 820 as well.

    I'm the same, I feel hard cases and bulky covers interfere with how the phone looks and feels. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a phone that exhibits great aesthetical qualities

    But that's the trade off; do you want practicality for a phone you're very likely to drop with an ugly case, or do you carry it naked to show off to the world but leaving it susceptible to said drops and fall? A terrible dilemma and a true first world problem
    There is another option, clear Skinomi skin. I have a skin on my device and it is very nice-- still get to have my phone pretty and slim but get a little added protection. It holds up to scratches very well. Peeled off one corner a bit though.
