HTC does Windows Phone

Written by Damian Carvill

The 8X is the flagship Windows Phone 8 (WP8) smartphone from HTC. Without the same marketing juggernaut that backs Nokia’s own WP8 launch, it has struggled to get the same sort of coverage and visibility, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as good.

With a variety of bold colours, something that seems to go hand-in-hand with a Windows Phone lately, the HTC 8X is indeed a bold device. It’s a sleek, lightweight, modern smartphone that’s designed for people who don’t want the same handset as the rest of the crowd.

So how does it do this?

Well at the moment, any Windows Phone 8 handset is going to stand out. Its adoption is still relatively low, lagging way behind Apple and Android devices, but all that is expected to change with a wave of new WP8 handsets coming out.

The HTC 8X boasts an impressive screen, camera and processor and with Beats Audio on board, we’re looking at a genuine competitor.
