Aside from the lower resolution display of the Nokia, half the RAM, and undefined 1 GHz dual core processor that is undoubtedly inferior to the 1.5 GHz S4 in the 8X, sure.

Have you watch the lumia 620 sometimes beating the 920 in loading apps, etc?

I don't think this phone beats the 8x(since it has an hd screen, 8mp camera with full hd video recording)but the 8s

No, and here is why, while amoled has deep black it oversaturates everything. on the other side clearblack gives you pure black but the ips tech gives you true to life colors. and as far as i know most oems are switching to ips...

Really? Clearblack is an old techno and it also produces pure white colors too not blue tints like we have seen on Super Lame-oled plus screen.

Oh yes, ive seen that tint on every single samsung phone that has an amoled display.. My Lumia 800 has a perfect screen and no tint :D Plus the blacks are truly black, it makes phone look even more awesome...

Nokia developed ClearBlack, and even has Samsung manufacture some of its ClearBlack AMOLED displays (I believe my Lumia 900's screen was made by Samsung). Perhaps this is what Nokia was referring to when they said Samsung may be stealing ideas from the production lines?

You just made yourself look like an idiot...
Clearblack is not a screen... Its a screen filter... Dumb...

Unlikely, unless Verizon were to adopt GSM tech (unlikely, as they're going to be shutting down their CDMA networks over the coming years and getting everyone on LTE for data and voice). Good reason to switch to AT&T or T-Mobile

Very Nice Mid-range Windows Phone 8 by Nokia. Sexy unibody design + SD Card+ClearBlack Display+Large Aperture Camera. This is THE phone if anyone want a midrange WP8 phone.
