A new midrange in between the 8x and 8s? Well,if the price is right then it fits the product line

That's not enough storage if it doesn't have an SD slot. It least the specs indicate that the next update for Windows Phone and will be available for all devices.

just compared the specs of this to the 8X and 8S. if it was money and i HAD to buy a windows phone, i'd still go with the samsung ativ S every time. the specs and options are such a higher standard for not that much more money.

The tiara is HTCs way of saying 'we've still got nothing new. Here, have a phone thats near enough the same as the last windows phone we brought out'

Very "meh". They need a wider variety, like an evolved Titan 2, and a One running Windows Phone 8. The WP8X has a great design, but was handicapped by its smaller screen and lack of flagship "specialness" in comparison to the Lumia 920.

And to round out the big-names, WP8S>NL520

I think 8X tops NL820 because of the higher resolutions, it's the same as NL920.

it has 8GB internal storage (8S only has 4GB);
it has Nokia specific apps (Drive, Lenses, offline navigation);
it has overall better build quality.

Well what can you expect from htc? Anemic batteries as usual ^_^ but wait... It's thinner. So that should make the price higher than the 720. Smh htc never listens.

The 8x is already midrange. We want a quad core processor, that new htc one camera, bigger battery, aluminum design, front facing speakers, bigger screen, and more. I can go on. Windows phone moves so slow. I might be going back to android if the Moto X is affordable.

WP8 takes so little battery life why would it need a quad-core just to add to the price, htc one camera is bad lumia 920s is the best and hey that is WP8, i agree with you on battery but my HTC 8s gets through a day fine, aluminium design-whats the point when you have beutiful design from nokia, agrre on front facing speakers, and some people dont want big screen but i would so i agree with you on that one...

I just want the best phone that can be made, not just what's 'good enough' since it's a windows phone. I want a windows phone that has just as high tech hardware as android phones. That's the way it was when the first windows phones came out. They fell behind along the way and made excuses for themselves by having a very light, simple OS.

I'm glad WP is still making 4.3 screen phones but enough with the 480x800 already! At least bump it up to qhd. That's still mid range at best at this point

The qHD resolution is not supported by WP8. Only 800x480, 1280x720, & 1280x768.

What's with the girly names? Butterfly then tiara? What's next? Jessica, lipstick, lingerie, Brittany, mascara? Lol. Girly names aside, HTC still makes good phones, though.
