    Guys I've finally decided on HTC 8X.. I'm thinking of buying it online but flipkart doesn't ship where I live but snapdeal.com does. Is snapdeal safe?? Also I'm getting it for Rs.23000, is this price good or I'll find better deals at local store?? I live in India by the way.. :p

    Sorry, Abhi_k4 , I cannot help you with your dilemma.
    I have bought the phone with ~220Euro, less the a half of the initial price of the phone in my country at its initial launch, few days ago. The phone has taken 3 updates and it's in tests :)... My first WP8... In my case the clear sound (beats on/off doesn't matter) and the camera above average until now are its biggest advantages, besides design, of course :) There are some problems, but are mainly platform dependent, on hardware side the power button has a not so ergonomic position and is sometimes hard to convince to make its job.

    I would agree with the flushed nature of the power, volume and camera buttons and the fact that most screen protectors don't cover the full glass front of the phone. Otherwise, it is a solid device and with a bit of extra support would have sold really well.

    I just bought an HTC 8x from Expansys. I live in Japan, no Windows Phone 8 here. Anyway, just got everything working. No regrets.

    By the way I increased my budget and going for Lumia 920, I'm just confused about music quality some say Dolby 920 is better than Beats 8x and some say vice versa.. I love music a lot and 80 percent time I'm listening to music on my phone.. Can't decide....

    Not an audiophile but for me beats sound better in the 8X than in my 810. Actually the dobly in my old HTC Mozart sounded better than what's in my 810. Don't think there is much difference between sound in the 810 and 920. So the 8X has the edge on audio and weight over the 920, but the 920 wins out on camera, storage space. No Equalizer in the 8X though, but there is one on the 920.

    8X has a superb sound, as a matter of fact I do not use beats at all and it works perfectly. The noise is practically inaudible.
    But, as a owner of more than a week of HTC 8X, I might say: go with Lumia 920, almost the same sound, better camera, more space and let's not forger the better app environment.

    For me 8x had the sound that I wanted and the decent camera at an tempting price. If you have extra cash to invest, then go for the competitor or perhaps 925 ;)

    Hmm I care for sound through headphones. Doesn't matter which sounds better with loudspeaker. But with the headphones I want the sound to be crisp, clear and loud and yeah clear bass with no distortion. Actually I don't use camera that much but the OIS is one thing I can't ignore plus 32GB storage too. 8X wins at looks and music I guess but 920 has OIS, 60 Hz screen, 32GB internal storage, HAAC rich recording, and Pro Cam app and all the lenses..
    Can you please explain a bit as where in music quality does the 920 lose to 8X like music is clear or crisp in 8X or bass is better on 8X.
    By the way I listen to Pop mostly and Rock and Metal and Trance and Country, my favourite Taylor Swift and Kesha and Secondhand Serenade and Linkin Park. Can anybody tell me also how is 920 through stock headphones compared to Galaxy S3?
    Sorry for such a long post by the way and thank you all for replies... :)

    Go ahead and buy 920. (Very hard to state this as I have HTC 8x. But I have 620 also. Now why I say so:

    If you have HTC 8x, you will miss some features that are there on 920.
    If you have 920, you will not miss anything, plus will enjoy extra features.

    Which features:

    Better Camera
    Better Night Shots
    You have full equalizer. You can match HTC sound by tweaking the equalizer. But not vice versa.
    (If HTC 8x had equalizer, no device will match it)
    Big list of Nokia only apps.
    But, I like and love my HTC 8x also.

    I have bought an HTC 8X from Taiwan At least 2 months ago...I have no issues regarding the phone....except for it misleading me into very very improper sites...

    I once Browsed in google to read a book, and when i got into the website...it directs me into a somesort of a spam website and showing me XXX.

    I really hate this, and I tried to reset my phone and reset my history...I have never been into any XXX sites or any sites that could link me through that. It's useless, and it kept appearing, everytime i tried use the Internet explorer or any browsers i download from the store.

    This is just after 2 weeks of use. Then I started to use my phone's default view to desktop viewing....and it works for some reason..no more spam websites and everything running the way it's supposed to be. I have no idea why does the mobile viewing has that kind of misleading things. I have no brought it to the service center yet, but i am planning to. This has to be stopped, anyone has an idea how to make this spam website to dissapear??? I really need help, because I share my phone with my younger brother.. and i tried to go the other websites with it...and It leads me to that specific website. I enable smartscreen and it doesn't work....at ALL.

    Any form of help will be appreciated....

    Blame Google. Guess they want you to use an Android phone that's why when you search in Google on your 8X it sends you to the nudie sites. Betcha that won't happen if you just used Bing...lol...

    All jokes aside, your best be may be to clear the cookies and stick to desktop view. Even when I use flash intensive sites like ESPN in desktop mode, I can navigate on it pretty well.

    No problem. That's why the forums here are the coolest on Mobile Nations...we do thing with a good laugh but we still help out.

    I like my 8X, but I'm thinking about getting an unlocked model instead of the VZW one I have, as I'd like to have internet sharing and get mms on it. Love the wireless charging feature though...

    Heyy guys just make me sure that I won't be jealous for music when I see someone's 8X and listen something through it. And how about when you compare 920's music quality to Galaxy S3? Can somebody please tell me..

    Increased my budget a little bit, now I'm thinking of Lumia 925.. I know it's idiocy how I went from 8X to 920 and now to 925.. :p In India we have 32GB 925 so memory is not an issue. But what about display?? I actually hate Galaxy S3's display so what should I go with 920 or 925? But slim profile and weight and sixth lens are in favour of 925. I won't be spending extra on wireless charging pad so that's not an issue for me.

    the 925 is the best option of the 3 - especially if the budget and memory are no issue. Personally, I like the LCD panels that HTC has always used, HD7/7S notwithstanding. But, you cannot go wrong with how good the overall package a 925 32GB is. The only thing that the 8X has over it is that it is lighter and the audio is very minimally better. Otherwise, outside of the 1020, the 925 is the best get from a high end WP8 available.

    Nay 8X is out of question now.. It's only about 920 or 925. In my country India both phones have 32GB memory. But 925 is more expensive and I really don't like AMOLED screens, I prefer LCDs instead. But 925 is lighter. Both look cool by the way. I think I'll go with 920 simply for the LCD panel. I haven't actually seen 925's display but I've seen Galaxy S3 and I kind of don't like it's AMOLED display. Blacks are good but whites are too pale.

    in my opinion, the 925 has a better panel than the S3.

    Abhi_k4, test yourself a 925, do not dismiss it before you can touch it. For me 920 was a little too big/heavy, 925 is more cool. And let's not forget, 1020 is right around the corner :)

    Although I understand your problem with AMOLED screens.

    Go for it. Love my 8x. I had the 925 for a while. I liked a few things about it. (That screen + outdoor visibility is cool) but I gave it to my girl and kept the 8X. It's just so sleek. And EVERYONE asks about it. Funny enough they all say "Is that the Lumia?"

    I'm going to buy an 8X used cause the price seems great. I'm keeping my 520, but ultimately I want the 925. I just can't afford it right now

    You might try this question in the Windows Phone Apps forum... not sure how it would work in India, sorry. In US, it just gets added to my phone bill.
