Description

The 8X by HTC sports a 4.3" LCD 2 HD screen, which, if the One X display is any indication, should be a sight to behold, and has the respectable 342ppi pixel desnity. It ups the WP ante with a modern 28mm dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 chipset, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, thus equating its specs with the fierce WP8 competition in the face of the Samsung ATIV S, or the innovative Nokia Lumia 920, which, however, has a lot more going for it with the PureView camera. How does the HTC 8X intend to differentiate from those? Why, Beats Audio, of course. The prominent branding is featured proudly on the back of the phone, promising deep bass sound and clearer audio. As for the sniping capabilities, we have an 8MP shooter on the rear with dedicated shutter key, equipped with HTC's exclusive ImageSense technology, which is essentially a proprietary ISP, allowing for some additional photo trickery, like ultra fast capture times, and continuous shot mode that takes multiple frames per second. It sports ultra wide f/2.0 aperture, just like on the Lumia 920.
