im pretty excited to see what is on the horizon; though, admittedly, i am not thus far impressed. i love the windows phone navigation. that and the camera and the music are the three things i care most about in a phone. i have no idea why a phone with the camera abilities of the one x doesnt come with a dedicated shutter button. that phone is awesome. the gsIII has an amazing camera, and a lot of other cool stuff that i dont care as much about, and yet no dedicated shutter button. it's frustrating precariously holding your phone up and having to poke a finger on the screen praying you dont mess up a good shot more than you do mess it up.

Good thing they are starting again with the core code.
Windows Phone 7 is build on CE

Windows Phone 8 is build on an NT hybrid core and from day 1 will handle up to 64 cores for future use.
Google it.

Android is a bloated mess with design issues from
day 1 causing the problems you see today.
They need to start again.

Nothing special about HTC Windows Phone 8X.
In fact it is a very boring W8 phone.
It is just a Lumia 920 clone.

The screen on the iPhone 5 isn't better neither.

I'm an iPhone user but it's good to see windows is making a comeback with W8 to give android a dose of reality that once there's more competition is that they can no longer flood the market with these crappy fragmented phones.

just look at the htc one s , no lag whatsoever then the one x will have lag ( only because of sense)
