HTC Windows Phone 8X Review- A Solid Start for WP8 on AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon
Windows Phone 8 is here and the first device to hit most people hands will be the Windows Phone 8X, consider to be the flagship Windows phone from HTC. The Windows Phone 8X sports a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 HD 720p display, housed in a Polycarbonate casing. It is powered by a snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5Ghz processor with 1GB of ram. The Windows Phone 8X comes with 16GB of internal storage with no microSD expansion. An 8 megapixel rear camera with BSI sensor and f/2.0 lens and an amazing 2.1 megapixel front- facing camera with a 22 degree wide angle lens and records at 1080p. All this is run with an 1,800mAh battery.
The design features of the Windows Phone 8X are sleek and sexy, the phone feels so light in you hands and very smooth to the touch with the matted finish. You will truly appreciate the flush design features the devices has. I must commend HTC for going away from their usual design attributes and going with a fresh and revealing approach that goes in hand in hand with a new OS launch with Windows Phone 8. So What makes the Windows Phone 8X stand out
The two main features of the Windows Phone 8X are the camera and Beats audio. Beats audio works the same as on their Android devices and does a great job in improving the audio quality to music while listening on headphones. The Camera here is a two part story. First off as seen in the full review the 2.1MP front facing camera does a fantastic job in taking photos and recording at 1080p, a feat not seen in any front facing camera. The Rear 8 Megapixel camera with its F/2.0 lens is solid all around and takes cues from the HTC’s One X line of smartphones. Doing a fantastic job at taking stills and recording video as seen here….
The Windows Phone 8X is a great start to Microsoft’s latest mobile Operating system. Its got the styling and features of a High-end smartphones with a beauty of a ballerina. HTC has done a great job in adding functionality like Beats Audio and a fantastic cameras to keep any user happen. ON the down side, I wish the device had more storage or a microSD option. But you have backup with Skydrive to help you out there. Overall I really like the Windows Phone 8X fromHTC and I feel this is a start of new begins for Windows Phone 8
