this isn't enough to beat the Ativ's 4.8" display and I prefer the Ativ S' design. This design language is very common nowadays.

Condsidering HTC has had this same DESIGN for awhile you Sir are wrong and a APPLE lover obviously.

The only thing that has changed in HTC design is the front glass from what it looks likes. the back looks like a INspire/Desire/Evo

It's alright. Not enough to make upgrade from my HTC Radar off contract though. Nokia still in the lead too.

I'm thinking that the color/design isn't specific to the device manufactures, but I'm thinking that it's specific to Microsoft. Otherwise how would multiple device manufacturers develop devices that all look really similar.

In an interview an HTC rep stated that they were going for what a LiveTile would look like in real life, like if you were to actually hold one. I'm sure that's probably the same inspiration Nokia used.

Lumia 920 is a winner this year.

These are the types of phones Windows should have launched with, not gradually building up to them. Now that the OS has some great handsets, let's see if the gradual increase can pick up momentum.

I don't disagree, but Windows Phone 7 and 7.5 weren't capable of phones like this. I would rather they had released 7/7.5 to build a name and get momentum going than start off with 8 (which would have been called 7) which would then be an untested and arguably untrusted system.

I think that design is going to be the trend for Windows Phone. It's pretty though

I'd like to see HTC pay homage to the original Touch Diamond, complete with LED circle and everything.

Me too! I loved the design of that phone. It would be cool if HTC picked up the Diamond line again for their WP's

Im suprised they didnt give it the 4.7" display of the One X. HTC were the ones pushing the screen size limit in WP and Android, now they seem to be more conservative, im guessing the Titan2 didnt sell that well after all?

The WP8 flagships are rather dull, i must say. They all have VERY similar specs, same features missing, and obviously the same UI, its like the same phone, just with a different name on it, it's a damn shame.

Looking forward to HTC's S4 Pro based Android flagship, clearly WP isn't going far.

Skydrive, and other cloud storage, works well, but I agree, I like having physical media so I can switch devices without syncing stuff

Does this phone has micro sd slot or not...........??? Because other sites are reporting that it has micro sd slot to expand the internal storage which is 16GB.............

55. jibraihimi (Posts: 766; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)


If this phone really has micro sd slot then Nokia should take a look at this device, and learn how to incorporate Micro Sd slot in polycarbonate unibody, without affecting it's look..........

Nokia Lumia 920 has better dispalay by size, sensitivity, brightness and resolution and the best camera on the market, 32 GB of memory against 16 of HTC, Lumia 920 has wireless charger and HD Dolby Stereo sound, better battery, the best navigation and maps, Nokia City Lens, exclusive maps, Optical image stabilisation great accessories. HTC might compete only with Lumia 820, but Lumia 820 is still better and has some unike features just compare and you will see that HTC 8X by all specs is avarege phone, some specs are good but it's not not a flagman.
