Top Rated Smartphone
Although a lot of news about Windows Phone 8 has been mostly about the Nokia Lumia 920, HTC did a great job with the Windows Phone 8X. It features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with Adreno 225 GPU and 1GB RAM. Though, 10.12mm thick, the HTC Windows Phone 8X looks thinner because of its unique design.
Like the name suggests, it runs the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 OS with live tiles and Microsoft Office Suites.
HD Display & Camera
The 4.3-inch display is bright and colourful with HD resolution (720 x 1280px, 342ppi). The rear-end camera offers 8 megapixels with full HD (1080p) video recording. The HTC Windows Phone 8X features a BSI sensor for better image capture in low light.
All the usual features of great camera phones are supported like autofocus, geo-tagging, LED flash, image stabilisation, etc. In the frontend there is a 2.1 megapixels ultrawide angle camera with full HD video (1080p).
Data & Connectivity
Unlike, the Nokia Lumia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8X lacks LTE support. Instead, quad band HSPA is available. Outside 3G coverage, the Windows Phone 8X supports GSM with data services on GPRS and EDGE. It also supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n for connecting over WLAN networks as well as NFC, Bluetooth 3.1, and USB 2.0.
Pricing and availability
HTC Windows Phone 8X is currently available in some countries, but not currently available in Nigeria. No pricing details for Nigeria yet, but based on its price in other countries we expect the HTC Windows Phone 8X to cost around N100,000 in Nigeria.
