> In reply to Mike @ 2012-12-21 10:35 from n{ab - click to readcan you compare somehow please htc 8x's audio output level through headphones output,with beats switch "on", compared with an iphone 4/4s or an ipad any generation, both on the same song?? please!! i have just made this test with htc 8s versus my iphone 4 and 4s and ipad 2,3,4 and i've noticed that htc 8s is sligtly louder and punchier,better in any aspect than any apple products. until now apple products were the loudest. i want to switch urgent on htc 8x if it have at least the same power through headphones as iphone/ipad. please, i wanna know, i have "apples" only for their superb and powerful music output through headphones, but htc 8s blowed my sony xb 700 headphones, it is incredible !!

I'm getting an 8X today. My phone is ONLY for email, text and calls - have a tablet, have a 5" screen music/video player, have a camera. Not into a phone being a: "Jack of all trades" device. Tired of my Galaxy S II's poor signal (even after ANOTHER update, two weeks ago) and email is a pain to operate. If the 8X delivers on the three fronts that concern me, fine. if not, will look for something else. Don't do Apple and refuse to DOUBLE my monthly outlay for an S III.

"They have pleasant haptic feedback, which can be disabled if unneeded."

How does one disable the haptic feedback?

false review
Best design ever.
A phone must not be giant.
Those phones that have replaceable battery are squeaky in hand and that's annoying.
For a phone LCD is better than AMOLED because of far better outdoor performance and don't say that AMOLED on galaxy SIII has better outdoor performance than HTC one X.

Absolutely Fantastic to use because of it's Superfast Processor. Much better than an iphone 5.

It packs the new Exmor RS stacked CMOS image sensor and the low-light samples are comparable to Lumia 920. However, the topic here is all about WP 8 products, so you have to deal with Android if you wanna have better quality pictures.

Here's the sample,

And windows phone 8 has arrived.. In a couple of years it'll be bye bye android completely.. Thank you for keeping us entertained while they came up with whats really a smartphone OS, now we are bored of you and your useless 7 panel interface with more than half the apps being viruses or spam.. Boring old menu display as well.. Your 3.1 n 4.1 n 4.3 n 4.5 n 5 n 6 doesn't impress me anymore.. Its the same crap..

I'd rather have 2lac functional apps then 7lac useless ones.. And bye bye lags and bugs..

I am moving to windows, a real smartphone app.. Doesn't need quad cores to save its face coz it runs so smoothly with its existing processor.. They are not foolish like android to make that a competition.. Coz obviously android needs it, its a different story it doesn't function well even after that..

Good luck android n iOS.. :)

Why would anyone wants this phone over 920 or even ATIV S. Does HTC even bother to give us a decent Camera?

I doubt EAP-TLS enterprise network support exist or not in windows phone 8. (same story from windows phone 7 onwards).

Pathetic enterprise support by Microsoft. No wonder why enterprises stick with iphone. Sorry microsoft, you will be failure again.
