Nice phone but the 8x will end up being another disappointing seller for HTC. Why only put 16gb memory on a flagship phone? The actual available memory for storing photos etc will be even less. Surely they need to include more memory or at least a memory card slot. Mistakes like these will not help them catch up with their competitors such as Samsung as they have alienated all those potential buyers who would use their phone to store movies or large music collections.

That is an interesting comment. In fact, Android is the only platform which have stolen most of the ideas from competing mobile operating systems, from UI to many functions involving patents infringements. It is also the least efficient, most insecure and unstable of the lot.

I can only hope windows phone 8 might start to catch up with the Android Platform, Maybe they'll have a few of their own ideas, instead of stealing all of android, then suing them for design. Im looking at you, Apple.

No LTE? Bluetooth 2.1?
Are you kidding me? For a flagship in 2012?

Microsoft is a company, of course. Windows is OS. But I don't see where I wrote Win is a company. Anyway, if I did it..my mistake.
I don't get what you mean with mistakes? Grammar or about phone specs?
English is not my native language, but I bet that everyone understand what I meant. If my writting has offended you..I'm sorry.
Thanks for reading it all. And maybe you have to say something about phones, not just about the quality of my comment :) .

adi ilie,
Windows is not a company.
Quota?

That post has a huge amount of really odd comments.
Edit: wow what a large number of mistakes too. Why did you write all that?
