HTC 8X Review

Cindy Lai

The HTC 8X -- also known as the Windows Phone 8X by HTC -- is a high-end Windows Phone 8 device. It'll feature a slick design, 4.3-inch display and a dual-core processor, though I wonder how much it has to offer over its Samsung, Apple and Nokia rivals. Stay tuned for the full review.

Good

+ Slick, colourful design

+ 720p screen

+ Beats Audio

Bad

- No removable battery

- No microSD card slot

- Rival phones have bigger screens and faster chips

- Windows Phone 8 software is unproven

HTC is diving into Windows Phone 8, and the HTC 8X -- also known as the Windows Phone 8X by HTC -- is the Taiwanese company's first major effort. It's not a bad showing on paper, with this pumped-up smart phone offering a 4.3-inch display, NFC and a dual-core processor. But with the mobile competition proving more fierce than ever, is there any reason to choose the 8X over its rivals?
