Nokia's Lumia 920 is expected to give the Windows Phone platform a significant boost when it hits the market in the coming months, but HTC is still committed to Microsoft's mobile OS, too. Its latest effort is the Windows Phone 8X, a unibody...

It's more practical than the Lumia 920 but, crucially, doesn't perform as well in the key areas of audio, video and web browsing. Still a decent addition to the initial WP8 roster, but we expect better will come from HTC and Windows. Follow...

One of the latest HTC phones to grace the market is the Windows Phone 8X. HTC has collaborated with Windows to create a phone so sleek and functional, it's just a matter of time till Microsoft starts stealing more market share. It helps that the...

The HTC 8XT is a disappointing Windows Phone that's a step down from its predecessor in nearly every...

You wouldn't know it to look at the adverts, but Microsoft chose HTC's Windows Phone 8X to be its lead device when the OS was released at the back end of 2012. That means this phone is supposed to embody everything that's impressive about Microsoft's new...

Everyone expected Nokia's tie-up with Microsoft to mean that its Lumia handsets would be at the forefront of the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) experience. Then HTC snuck in a side door and before the...

As its imaginative name suggests, the HTC Windows Phone 8X is one of the company's first smartphones to use Microsoft's latest mobile operating system. You'd be forgiven for thinking it was another Lumia phone - the colourful and seamless design with...

The HTC Windows Phone 8X has a decent camera and is capable of producing good images and won't let you down in low-light thanks to its f/2.0 lens and low noise at higher ISOs. The camera app is very basic, similar to the iPhone in many ways, although...

The HTC 8X is available in the market for Rs.35, 800, which makes it terribly overpriced for what's on offer. It's a superbly built handset with a very good form factor, has an excellent front facing camera and a high density screen. Apart from this,...

While almost all of the AnandTech editors are using Android or iOS smartphones as their daily driver due to the relative maturity of those platforms (and oftentimes bleeding edge hardware within), Brian learned I'd been using the Windows Phone...

HTC has watched their once commanding lead in the Android world dwindle, with Samsung scooping up the majority of Android related fanfare. And then there's Apple and iOS. Together, Apple and Samsung are making HTC's financial directors weep. Windows...

The HTC Windows Phone 8X, in my opinion, this is the best iteration of HTC's signature Windows Phone so far. The 8X got me through a full day of solid use with plenty of life to spare, and light users will likely get a day and a half. Phone calls...

HTC have worked well to give us a great looking phone that offers a satisfying user experience. If you’re looking for a different experience from iOS or Android, then this is one of the better Windows Phones out there. About t-break NewsComments...

The 8X is a convincing Windows Phone 8 handset. Granted it's a bit big, but it's nothing like as massive as the Nokia Lumia 920. The screen is very good and as crisp as an Iceberg lettuce leaf dipped in liquid nitrogen. The handset is rock solid too,...

In late October Microsoft launched Windows Phone 8, a new OS for smartphones. The interface of WP8 closely resembles that of version 7.5, but under the hood the engine of Windows CE has been replaced with the kernel from Windows NT. Existing phones...

Having spent a little over a week with the HTC Windows Phone 8X, I'm left with the very interesting dilemma. My dilemma arises when looking at the basic components not this device, not the hardware, but rather the makeup of this HTC – T-mobile – Windows...

When we reviewed earlier Windows Phone handsets, we were told the platform needed time to bed in. It's had that and it's evolved but we can't help feeling there are still a few areas it really is left lacking. Things like the poor media support are...

OK, let's consider the Windows Phone 8X compared with its Windows competition — and then we'll look at the wider market. Personally, I haven't reviewed Nokia's Lumia 920 and 820 devices yet, but I have played with them during their Australian launch...

HTC's Windows Phone 8X needed that "one more thing" to justify its place among the premium phones, but fails to deliver. It's a good phone, just not a great...
