Review: HTC Windows Phone 8X for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

The HTC Windows Phone 8X is a solid smartphone, both literally and figuratively. Though I'm not a superfan of the industrial design, the polycarbonate shell and shape make the 8X one of the strongest devices I've used this year.

What's most important is that the 8X delivers the goods when it comes to performance. It's a good voice phone, an excellent data device, and the battery lasts all day. The user interface is lightning quick and more customizable than ever. For those invested in Microsoft's XBox or Windows ecosystems, there is plenty of synergy between them and the 8X thanks to Windows Phone 8.

My only real complaint about the 8X is the camera, which simply doesn't do as good a job as some of HTC's other devices released this year.

If you've used Windows Phone devices in the past, the 8X is a clear and recommendable upgrade. If you're an Android or iOS user and are considering Windows Phone for the first time, the 8X delivers just as much functionality as the other platforms in a more colorful package.
