    I've posted another thread stating that HTC took down their update page regarding the 8x and T-Mobile. Yesterday, the "republished" the update page. It's the same exact one, but it does give credence that our update maybe near.

    Looking at the post, that seems to be pointing to the last update the 8X received, but maybe Verzion hasn't updated that page yet?

    Agreed. I can't find anything in that link that points to GDR2 and its features.

    Sorry about that. They messed up on that on the Verizon HTC 8X Forum. The link provided above references a previously released update, not GDR2. :-/

    Haven't read anything about Beats after GDR2, so I'll write about what I've noticed about it. First, media fades in whenever you either change tracks or resume play after having paused whatever you're listening to. I really enjoy that feature because my speakers won't blare after my my music pauses or I get a notification/call. Second, the sound is more dynamic when plugged into an auxiliary cable. I never could hear a difference when I turned Beats on with my phone connected to my car stereo. Now I can hear parts of the recording to most music I was only able to distinguish when I used my Beats headphones. It's a good improvement since I'm always using my phone to listen to music.

    I never like beats audio, it makes everything sound grainy or have a lot of background static. I usually keep it off, but somehow I don't get any bass without it, other devices are fine. I honestly could do without beats audio.

    Background static and grainy sounds faulty. However, it you aren't using decent headphones then that could be the reason...

    Well T-Mobile sure gives a lot of love to their 8x customers. It hasn't even released yet.

    Beats Audio sounds UNBELIEVABLE now. Idk what changed in regards to it, but it definitely improved a lot I think.

    I'm on AT&T and got my update on 8/16 and I"ve noticed a few issues that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere:

    1) I am no longer able to highlight and copy text from text messages. Can do from everywhere I could before, but just no longer from a text.

    2) I am aware of the Bing search changes, but there seems to be a problem to me with the way it is working. I understand it does load image and video results right away to save on the data usage. When I search for something the normal web results come up first. If I swipe over to view image or video results, I see the exact same content as the web results.The web results are responsive, but the results in image and video (which are exactly the same as the web) take several taps to respond. If I tap in the search box while on the image or video results screen and then hit enter without changing anything I will receive results that are correct for the page (image or video) that I am on, but if I swipe to the other results pages it will only display the image or video results.

    3) When streaming pocasts an error pops up after 12-15 minutes and says that "This file type is not supported by your device" (or something along those lines of the file not being supported) and playback stops. If I try to restart the podcast I get the error message again. I have to fully exit back to the start screen and go back to the podcast like I'm doing it for the first time. Then it will start to play again after selected and I can fast forward to the point where it dropped off. After another 12-15 minutes the same thing happens again.

    No catastrophic issues, but still annoying.

    Updated through Verizon and I still have 5gb in other storage, will this go away or do I need to hard reset?
