Why does the cheaper 8S look so much more stylish and beautiful than the too-solid 8X that costs more? :(

I would love the 8X's hardware in an 8S enclosure, or at least the 8X's 720p screen. WVGA is suck, especially coming from a 720 Galaxy Nexus screen...

I think the 8S packs a Qualcomm MSM8227 (EU Version) and a Qualcomm MSM8627(US Version) both of the Snapdragon S4 Plus family.
They go with a Adreno 305 GPU not with a Adreno 225.

hTC has been a copycat for a long time. This time it goes to far.
Sony + Nokia = hTC.

Nice looking phone!
Love that one in fluorescent green and the contour around the speaker but is it only me or this looks a bit like XperiaP and U without the transparent strip?
