Great device, leaves very little to be desired

Posted on: February 5th, 2013 by Hayden Smith

The WP 8X by HTC is no doubt an amazing device. First things first, I am not here to criticize the Windows Phone 8 Operating system, just the phone itself The device has everything you need, a great screen (which for me is the perfect size), decent battery life (It always gets me through a day), fast processor (I am never left waiting for the phone to catch up, it always flows along right with me), a great camera that's all you'll ever need from a smartphone and a beautiful design that attracts plenty of attention As mentioned before, the screen is of very high quality, everything looks great and it is the perfect size for me, out of all other screen sizes. From 3.5'' to 4.8'' , 4.3'' is the best mix of usability and readability, i never feel it is too big or too small. The glass is also very durable, after a trip into a rusty, old metal mechanical couch, the phone escaped with very minor damage while any regular phone (without gorilla glass) would probably have smashed to bits in there. The battery on this device is comparably small but the OS is very efficient and the (relatively) smaller screen and slower processor are enough to power the device without draining the battery. I easily get through a day with moderate use and 20% or more left to spare The processor isn't the fastest (with two cores, many high end smartphones are running of four cores now) but the phone doesn't need them. The experience is snappy and fluid all around, I have no complaint's with speed or loading times. Nowadays it seems everyone is making the switch from a digital camera to their smartphone camera. The camera on the 8X won't beat out the competition but it will take photos just as nice. The camera is comparable to that of most smartphones taking relatively crisp and bright shots. The front camera makes all the difference, coming from just about any smartphone you will be thrilled with the front camera on the 8X, very wide angle and detailed pictures. I love having the physical button on the side that launches the camera from anywhere, even a locked phone, I never have to take my gloves off to snap a photo in winter again, everything can be done in a few seconds with two quick presses of the camera button. Lastly the design, the 8X is often regarded as being in the top 5 best ever smartphone designs (if not the very top). I have to agree that HTC did a marvelous job with this phone. The materials feel premium and the curvature make it very comfortable to hold and have the effect that the phone is much thinner than it really is. The design is an attention hog but there are a few downsides. The buttons (especially power, sleep/wake) is a little to flush with the body, making it difficult to locate and press in one try, if there was one this I could change about this phone, i would put the button on the side and have it stick out a bit more. Overall the Windows Phone 8X is a winner in my book, if the only complaint you have is the button being a bit hard to push, then you obviously have a winner in your hands
