    ^ Yep, agree. I'd say Nokia has repeatedly proven that they offer superior support. Their initiative to solve the storage problem are just the latest example.

    Well there's the Microsoft specific updates that the 8X have definitely received (though I think some carriers are still holding the update back). But Nokia Nokia goes a step further with more firmware updates and software improvements.

    Not to say that there's anything wrong with owning an 8X. It's a fine phone. Plus it's guaranteed to get major updates thanks to Microsoft's promised 18-month commitment. But if someone wanted just a liiiitle bit extra, then Nokia's exclusive content is hard to beat.
    But the 8x HAS received HTC specific updates for firmware updates and improvements. Heck, I just got one last week!

    Now looking into the future, yes Nokia has all it's eggs in one basket so they really have no option to short the WP users, but that doesn't mean HTC will. They certainly haven't been anything but great to us.

    Don't get me wrong though, I'm not an HTC fan boy, I actually don't care for them. But credit is due where credit is earned and with the 8x and their support for it I'm thoroughly surprised!

    I don't think anyone is saying HTC isn't holding their own. HTC actually does offer much better support for the 8x than they typically do. It's just that Nokia does even better.

    I wouldn't upgrade right now. While the 928 is technically superior to the 8X in a couple of key areas (camera, apps) it is still from the same generation as the 8x. I would hold off for the true next generation of Lumia's to come out later this fall before I'd plunk down any cash on something new.

    I'm also on Tmobile and I dint know if your using an 8X or not, but the only things that will make me DEFINITELY get a international 928 or the recent 925 would be a storage upgrade. The camera isn't that big of a need for me. My 8X has been receiving regular updates quickly and HTC has been answering me support tickets REALLY fast and in a very caring manner. The storage though man ): I need SD Card or 32GB.
    I'm now using an unlocked Rogers 920. Was using the 810 before, so you can imagine how I'm feeling in that regard (EOL and lack of Storage Check). Good to hear you've been getting good support from HTC. I've read so many stories about the opposite from other HTC owners.

    Better enough to justify $499? That's the point I'm getting at. They do something's better, but definitely not better enough to make it a $499 decision! Sorry, I should have just said that from the start.. lol

    Oh no, I'm not saying that HTC hasn't released firmware updates too. I do read the first page every once in a while, lol. Only that Nokia has released more. Maybe that's because there was more to fix, maybe not, but then there's stuff like the "Other Storage" fix that Nokia released and several exlusive apps like their camera lenses.

    If someone already owns an 8X/9XX, I would recommend they stick with what they have. The 928/925 isn't enough to warrant another $500 dollar purchase.

    That I 100% agree with. Nokia walks on HTC with the exclusive apps!

    Well, I'm sort of in a unique situation which is why I still think I will pick up a 928. I've had a Droid DNA for a little while and I just sold it on Swappa for $420 last night. A couple weeks ago I bought a brand new 8X off a Verizon employee for $150. It was silly the price I got it at. It was literally brand new.

    What's funny about the whole story is that I was originally buying the 8X to play with and possibly flip as I had been with Android for around 4 years. But I fell so much in love with it that I put my DNA on Swappa. Fast forward to last week and the 928 was announced. I told myself if a good Lumia comes out that's really what I want to have on WP8. So now I'm in a situation where 8X's are going for around $300 on Swappa.

    So I will throw this on there and probably come out ahead even after buying the 928. Sound good or is my logic flawed?

    Why:
    -Camera
    -Flash
    -Microphones
    -Speaker
    -Display
    -Nokia Apps
    -Nokia Quality/Support

    It is worth it if these things are important to you.
    Add Wireless Charging and NFC to that list

    He didn't because I was asking for a comparison to the 8X which also has wireless charging and NFC.
