HTC's new Windows Phone 8 flagship is stylish and has a great screen.

HTC 8X

 

The HTC 8X has too many gaps in quality to be better than average

Light, practical size ; WP8 is slick ; Decent camera ; Fast ; Good edge definition with video

Average sound quality ; Colour lacks punch ; Poor battery life ; Lacking in apps

HTC 8X review

 

Given Nokia and Microsoft's ‘special relationship' we were expecting the Lumia 920 to be the first Windows Phone 8 handset to grace Stuff Towers, but HTC in all of its expectation-defying wisdom has sent the 8X – or Windows Phone 8X by HTC to give it...

Head-turning design, Retina-beating resolution, Rock-solid performance

Windows Phone still lacks apps, Vague physical buttons

HTC 8X

 

Consider November the rebirth of Windows Phone and, with that new beginning, expect an array of new phones packed with new tricks all trying to impress the money out of your pocket. As a piece of hardware the HTC 8X is a lovely phone. The screen is...

Lovely hardware, great screen, brilliantly designed OS, fast and responsive

Nowhere near enough Windows Phone apps, HTC hasn't developed any value for the Windows Phone platform, camera isn't brilliant, battery life is average

As a piece of hardware the HTC 8X is a lovely phone. The screen is larger than the iPhone but not as overbearing as the Samsung Galaxy S III or the Nokia Lumia 920. The polycarbonate shell gives you a lovely feeling and for us the dimensions work...

HTC Windows Phone 8X review

 

The HTC 8X is the signature Windows Phone 8 device, but is it any good?

8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture ; Elegant, latest WP8 OS ; Unibody polycarbonate design ; Fantastic contacts integration

No removable battery ; No expandable memory ; Rubbish multiple calendar support ; Mediocre battery life

A splash of colour, Microsoft's latest mobile platform and a sleek new body are combined with more powerful hardware - is the 8X the phone to bring Windows Phone 8 to the masses?

HTC Windows Phone 8X video review

 

We like the thin and light design of the 8X, which comes in four different colours. Its rounded edges and smooth curving back give it a svelte look, while the rubbery finish is pleasant to the touch and aids grip.

HTC Windows Phone 8X review

 

A plus point for us, especially when compared to Nokia's Lumia 820 and 920, is the size and weight of the 8X. This smartphone is more up to date and manageable with its thickness and scale figures of 10mm and 128g.

The HTC Windows Phone 8X is the best all-rounder of the Windows Phone 8 smartphones we've tried. It has a different and less comprehensive selection of pre-loaded apps to Nokia models, but the hardware is better than the identically priced Lumia 820.

A competent Windows Phone 8 handset, but it's worth spending a bit more for the superior Nokia Lumia 920

HTC Windows Phone 8X by HTC review

 

As its clumsy name suggests, this is HTC's first Windows Phone 8 handset - we'll just call it the HTC 8X from now on. On the surface, Windows Phone 8 is only a mildly tweaked version of Microsoft's slick mobile operating system, but there have been...
