HTC 8XT Review
As mentioned earlier, the new Snapdragon 400 processor allows the HTC 8XT to get more life out of its comparatively small 1800mAh battery. It is rated for 14 hours of talk time, which is very good for a CDMA device and LTE smartphone.
In the end we found ourselves enjoying the HTC 8XT, and are glad to see Windows Phone 8 finally make its way to all four major carriers. We once again are impressed with HTC’s ability to design a phone, but the device is not without compromises such as the decreased display resolution. What it really comes down to is your affinity for the Windows Phone OS; as pretty and smooth as it is the ecosystem just isn’t there and market share shows that. If you’re looking for a good mid-range Windows Phone device the 8XT gets our blessing, but in the end we’d imagine most users will look to a different OS, something the phone has no control over.
OS version: 8.0.10327.77
Firmware revision number: 3030.00.10008.651
- Well designed, good looking device
- Combination of BoomSound speakers and Beats Audio make for great audio
- Good call quality
- WVGA display is a step down from the 8X
- Color mismatches and an unnecessarily large camera bezel are visual stumbles
