Truly; ONLY design is good.
If you really wanna go for windows, go for Lumia 535(lower budget) or lumia 730/35(mid range)
Nokia hardware is crap :(
Wifi and 3G signal is much better on HTC 8S.
Windows 8 and 8.1 is much stable on HTC.
HTC is better quality then Nokia.
My next phone will be HTC one M8 Winows 8.
matt, 01 Dec 2014Yes you have to have the developer preview app and install all updatesI need an Activation code for my htc 8s
Just Install Preview for developer and sign in With your microsoft account. Surely every body will get the latest update of windows i.e: 8.10.14219.341
My cha cha was real cool but for that feedback that not enough space when you have virtually less apps,reporting error,error thus you not being able to enjoy your phones features makes it suck,don't know abt the HTC8 as it was just gifted me,but a few folks are complaining here n there abt the HTC8's abilities,i pray it doesn't happen as i am very sure the developers of this pretty phones may have heard the complains and improved upon it
jebote , 20 Nov 2014hot do i upgrade it to 8.1 ? download Preview for Developers
I got this phone for Christmas and i hate it! Its has an awesome slick design but that's all it has going for itself. There is a horrible range of apps available. The ones that is on it (viber) doesn't even work properly, it always freezes, says "error occurred" a billion times. I'm,not able to download anymore apps because it keeps saying "error occurred" and everytime i try to do anything my phone says "not enough memory, please clear space" even though i only have 3 apps other then the ones that are already on it. The system takes up 3 gb of the 4gb of storage on the phone.,i have a micro sd card in it but i can only save pictures and music to it. The speakers on it are terrible the sound is muffled. Its gorilla glass isn't as strong as its made out to be. Fell out,of my pocket and the whole screen is cracked and a chunk of the bottom came off. I would not buy this phone or recommend it to a friend. Maybe i just had bad luck with it but ive had a horrible experience with it!
