Pudin, 04 Oct 2012But it says it has secondary cameraNo, HTC said that secondary camera miss and this have not seen the pictures too.
IMO, the most important parts for almost all users are the looks, screen and battery, hTC 8S is better than Lumia 820 on that aspects. With 4" display, 233 ppi is enough compared to 4.3" but 217 ppi. And even with a smaller screen, 8S has larger battery than Lumia 820.
But other than that, Lumia 820 outperforms 8S on software and hardware features.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Just can't decide, WP or android but if I choose WP will buy this one I have been using lumia 610 for one week,
because the phone is low on ram many apps dont work and even the apps that u can get on it work work smoothly, apart from this i think WINDOWS OS is much better than android, and if windows can get enough apps they can beat Android any day. Smoothnes and ease of use of OSs' Id rank: 1st -iOs, 2nd- Windows, 3rd- Android.
aliguntugueeeee, 02 Oct 2012is the os windows or android?Even the names says its a windows phone.
@ somen. this phone does not have a front facing camera. atleast read the specs before commenting. thank you
wht's say its it best phne to byt guys (htc 8s )compare to galaxy note n its features
iamkr, 01 Oct 2012no front cam for sure.......is the os windows or android?
obase, 21 Sep 2012Htc needs to work hard on their windows smartphone because nokia lumia 920 windows 8 phone is ... moreThis phone isn't going up against the 920! That would be the larger and slightly more powerful htc 8x. The 8s looks like a nice enough phone with enough tech to satisfy the normal user (obviously can't satisfy the tech nuts who demand a pc in the size of a phone but hey). And most importantly this phone will be affordable :D Why are older models of Apple's iPhone and Sansung's Galaxy series remaining stubbornly expensive when they've been eclipsed by newer models? For the market it's aimed at, i.e. those of us who don't want to break the bank but would like a nice OS experience, the phone fits the job perfectly. The lumia 820 is also a very good looking phone but it will be more exoensive, something like $200 more, for extras that don't neccesarily justify the hike in price. The htc 8s has a higher ppi than the lumia despite having the lesser quality screen. Anyway, for a mid range phone it does very well.
fantastic phone but i bielieve htc's pricing strategy will only turn the crowd to lumias.
