"Although the design of this phone is beautiful, it doesn't really stand a chance against android smartphones."

The HTC 8x was at first a very appealing phone, however after buying it I changed my mind. First of all I'll start with the display and the app store; the app store is not impresive at all because most of the applications are not official; Youtube for example, and the few Impressive games cost you; Draw Something for example cost .99 cents and is really a dissapointment. One part of Microsoft Office that i am very dissapointed about is that you cannot create a power point unlike how android users or ios users with Quick Office can, which makes me question why even name it Microsoft Ofice if you don't have all of the features it should be expected to have. The phones display is good but it doesn't meet up to the standards when streaming video from m.youtube.com. The call quality is very good, much more impressive than my previous device, the Droid Incredible by HTC because it sounds more like an actual conversation, thanks to the secondary mic to reduce outside noise, whoever you are talking to can hear you clearly so you wont have to keep on repeating whatever you just said. The battery life on this cellular device is pretty decent but it would have been better if Microsoft could have put a 2,000 mAh powered battery in this device or higher because when you use the device, you may think you close a window or action but it is still active. Overall this phone is pretty decent, but however I definitely would not recommend this to any gamer, or hard core user because the battery may die within a few hours and the app store is a huge disappointment to users.
