    A friend of mine translated letters from Latin to German. I'm helping proofreading the translation, it's confusing and frustrating. I really couldn't do this (even if I knew Latin).

    Since I am traveling in Coach (Economy) Class tomorrow early morning, I am asking with a bit of trepidation. BigP, how about cattle class to this side of the pond?

    Appreciate the advice. I am relatively new to WP - Oct 25, 2013 onwards. I have cycled through 521, 810, 822 and 925. Currently an 810 is my daily driver. I am awaiting the delivery of a 920, hopefully today. I am trying to gauge up all the various WP devices. There was a great deal on an unlocked HTC 8X and hence the questions. I do like Nokia Mix Radio quite a bit. Also I use Nokia Panorama quite a bit as well. But I had an HTC TyTnII running WM6 which I liked as well. I am quite happy with my Samsung Galaxy (rooted) with its AMOLED screen.....

    I think I will see which one between ATIV and 8X can I pick up on a bargain to try out something else besides NOKIA. I am on T-Mo and 920 and 8X support LTE but ATIV does not.
    Tell you what - I went with the 8X after trying a carrier variant. Of those available, if you get a hold of a cheap AT&T unlocked version, that's a nice one to try. If you can get a Rogers Ativ S (T899M, I think) that has t-mo supported LTE. Personally, I'm a HSPA+ man because all that speed I don't need since my job had me use airplane mode all day.

    Unless you can get the proxy trick to work, your Nokia Panorama substitute is Photosynth, and I can look into that app for you later.

    What about the unlocked ATIV S from Expansys USA? Is that inferior to the Rogers' version?
    AT&T 8X are 8GB and T-Mo 8X are 16GB. I'll take your advice and keep looking for an AT&T unlocked version.

    HSPA+ works fine for me as well :-) I sit in a Faraday cage of a building so it is like being in airplane mode all day :-)

    Thanks for the tip on Photosynth. And I will await your word on BandsMusic.

    I have an HTC 8X and I wouldn't want any other phone at this point. Maybe a Lumia 925 if I'd get it as a gift.

    Well, you can try to source a 16GB version of the AT&T model...unless you are secure in your reselling prowess. I actually chose the 8X because I got a project VZW model and loved it...but once I started to get friends who sent me more pictures and group SMS, the VZW issue with the 822 I described above applies here. That's why I sold it and got an unlocked model and I'm good. If you are balling on a budget, and need a carrier variant, get the AT&T model. T-mo's own didn't get the FM radio and I haven't seen anything about it getting Update 3. I know AT&T's model got it.
    The ExpansysUSA model sold for $234 is the HSPA+ model, not the LTE one. That's why it is inferior to the Rogers model as the Rogers one supports t-mo's LTE. Otherwise, it is the same phone.

    Some how I paid for this month SONY Music Unlimited that cost 9.99 however it worth it for myself!

    Then I got a free copy of film from SONY video Unlimited after registering which was good.

    And then I got the Playstation app which I can do some good stuff on as well I can use my Playstation 3 controller to play games on my SONY XPERIA Z1!

    So what I'm saying I hope my Z1 comes tomorrow!

    I don't mind smart opinions. Just not a fan of blind fandom. Corporations are in the business of making profits, even the ones we "like"...

    What carrier do you have? Are you using the HTC 8X 8GB on AT&T? I'm a T-Mo guy but am tempted to get $400 from AT&T and then 4 months later go back to T-MO.

    I'm on t-mo. Been so for the past 8 years. My last carrier branded phone was the Lumia 810. I usually use unlocked phones.

    If the hopping back and forth works for you, cool. Personally, I'd just trade one of those lumias for a 8X, or just save and do it that way. Whatever floats your boat though. Cell phones are expensive...

    Thanks. Been on T-Mo since day one, about 10 years ago. I also use unlocked phones or if they are branded T-Mo has been pretty good to me for unlocking T-Mo phones. I think I'll sell my unlocked 810 and see if I can get an 8X for a bit more. I am tempted to get the $400 from AT&T and then go back to T-Mo in 4 months.
