would there be a notification light? and how good is the Windows Phone OS in terms of word suggestions while typing?
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012quad cores don't lagYes, quad core doesn't lag easily. But the OS running it is the one that lags. And what I mean is Android. LOL
Infexis, 23 Sep 2012First of all..what android phone are you comparing to? Most people take a shitty wildfire and ... moreu r wrong and u r wrong ..... coz the bottom line is android with quad core even lags........
Ripcode, 21 Sep 2012LOL LOOK AT THE PPI its 342 That's higher than ANY PHONE upto date. That's a f@%#$g brilliant ... moreYou are right, but one must remember that the ppi is only higher than Lumia 920s cos the screen is smaller, resolution is the same. Other than the ppi Id claim 920 has the better screen.
Anyways, this is a cool device and I hope highly succesful so WP8 phones become real competitors in the smartphone world. My pick will be Nokia, but Ill cheer for anything running WP8!
My N8 came with 16gb memory and sd card slot. Ive used 6-7gb of the internal memory in 2 yeara, no need for the card slot ever. Never deleted vids or pics ive taken. Ill manage without a cardslot, i rather take skydrive integration
Ok people can be stupid now days. Everything is by experience or preference which honestly go hand in hand. Myself for example have never liked Android OS mainly because of the standard smart phone lag it gets after 6 months to a year. Even with the S2 it is noticeable but hardly. not sure about the S3 since i havent messed with one yet. And i just never have been a Fan of iOS mainly just cause thats my preference. Ive now had my HTC HD7 for about 2 years now and yea there are some things about it that can improve. But no lag at all still to this day. functions just like it is brand new. suprisingly memory good considering i have over 400+ pictures and videos and about 800 songs. But as far as the little things like Radio and more storage...PEOPLE THEY HAVE AN APP STORE FOR A REASON! My only concern is will nokia sue HTC like ive heard. I hope not cause i am looking forward to getting the 8X on release :)
windows 8 and IOS does not require that much processor but android has all supports so it requires a good processor
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2012Not being funny right, Android lags, true story. That's why it needs a quad core. WP doesn'... moreFirst of all..what android phone are you comparing to? Most people take a shitty wildfire and compare to iphone 4s/5 or highend wp8 device... And second android is far more capable os than wp8 and ios so its logical it takes more power than a device that cant even smell the fart of android.....am i right or am i right? Haha
surya, 20 Sep 2012dont buy these lousy htc phones without camera- image stabilization... dont be fooled by 8 pi... moreya true, buy phones only with image stabilisation, it is the marketing plan cheating people, what can u do with 99 shots when u cant get even a single good picture... u cant take any good picture '' unless the phone, object,is static.. u cant take moving objects not even ur kids pics with 8 pixel latest camera, what the hell is this.. friends just think before u buy..dont buy htc for camera u r being cheated with too many useless features
nokia 920 has lte 4g and 8.7 mp camera with pureview.Nokia lumia 920 is better than this one.the only thing i hate is 180g weight.but its not a big drawback.
You don't need a quad core if you have the Krait.It is mroe powerful than most quad core processors for handheld devices.Besides,what do you need a quad core for?
Not being funny right, Android lags, true story. That's why it needs a quad core.
WP doesn't lag. No need for expensive quad core.
WP Rocks in so many ways now it has been updated (or soon to be WP8)
This phone looks great, similar look to the Nokia, 920, but much lighter than the 'very heavy' 920. Dual Core CPU is nice, much easier on the battery than the quad core, so thats a plus, Windows Phone OS is a much cleaner OS (Apple iOS aswell) than android & dual core is all you need to get the most out of the phone, thats why most new android phones have quad core, need a bit more under the hood to get android running smooth. 1gb ram is good, but only 16gb of space is a little low but usable, no MircoSD slot is a bit disappointing but not game breaking, my current phone has a 32gb microsd card in it & at most used about 25% of it in 2.5 years. Looking at getting a new phone this year & the 8x goes to the top of my list.
This is so annoying this phone looked amazing but 10mm is to fat I didn't think it would matter when I got the matrix but it annoys me how fat it is. Android I'm sticking with you for one more year by the looks of things phone wise. Tablet wise I own a nexus but want surface so much.
