Be more believable then.

A bloated fragmented buggy mess that is still seen to lag.

how come they already have samples taken in singapore?
CMIIW but all the photos were published right after the 8x was launched in US (which is nighttime in SG) yet all pics & vids were taken in a broad daylight?

I think this camera better than Lumia 800

I owen Lumia 800 after 1 year owning N8

The lumia has nice features but the quality of still photos are crap ...the N8 is the powerful camera not to mention the 808 pureview

I hope they will fix the lumia 800 camera cause the problem is on the software not hardware

I'm bothered by hardware issues anytime htc announces new devices. I'll go for samsung or sony for android, and nokia for WPs. I don't like apple, i think i'm just paying for the brand name not the product.

am previously a wp user way back wp4 to wp6. my devices back then were from o2, htc and samsung.

i switched to android when wp started to become restricted during wp7.

let's see how wp8 goes then maybe i'll get wp8 as a secondary or probably my primary device.
