Lumia wannabe falls flat on its face! HTC are destined to be the also rans among Android and now among WP8.

Wow. The 8x is more of a turd than I had originally gave it credit for. It is like so many Chinese KURFs were the design of the chassis mimics a great handset, yet the screen is smaller, the flash storage is smaller, camera is not on par. Only thingbit's missing is the tv antenna and the duel sim cards.

Why is no lock screen short cut an issue? Is a lock screen a lock screen when it has short cuts?

Android devices need the fast CPUs to be responsive, iOS and WP not as much.

Windows 8 doesn't do anything for me and WP8 isn't much better.

Almost similar dimension with Ativ S but with smaller screen and not much different (advantage) in term of hardware or software compare to Ativ S... Better go for bigger screen rather than bigger bezels....

If you bothered to learn more about its performance, you would know that it's actually very close to the quad-core Krait inside the Optimus G.

Seriously, why is it a problem with the dual core CPUs if even the iPhone 5 works well with it? I don't get.
