Just how cheap can the HTC 8X get?
The HTC 8X is one of the nicest looking phones I’ve ever used, it is also one of the highest specified Windows Phone 8 devices around. Seemingly the only problem with it is that it isn’t made by Nokia.

Over the last few months the price of the 8X has been dropping, over at Expansys you can now get the HTC 8X in black or blue for £199 including VAT and delivery.

If you’re looking for a cheap ish high end Windows Phone then this could be for you. It has a great screen, a decent camera, 16GB internal memory, 1GB RAM and a few HTC exclusive apps (including a clock).

The Windows Phone 8X features the new Windows Phone 8 operating system and boasts iconic design, studio-quality sound with Beats Audio™ and incredible camera capabilities.

The Windows Phone 8X by HTC features a beautiful, 4.3″ HD-resolution super LCD 2 screen protected from everyday bumps and scrapes by lightweight Gorilla® Glass 2, while optical lamination reduces reflections and glare, ensuring you see every detail.

HTC has introduced a 2.1mp, f/2.0 aperture, 88° ultra-wide angle front-facing camera that allows up to four people and more to be captured at once.
It also supports 1080p video capture. The rear camera sports an 8mp CMOS sensor with backside-illumination (BSI) for improved low-light performance, along with an f/2.0 aperture, 28mm lens and a dedicated imaging chip. A physical shutter button makes it quick and easy to capture spontaneous action, even if the phone is locked.

Exclusively available on HTC smartphones, Beats Audio provides authentic, studio-quality sound that delivers the spirit of the original recording. The Windows Phone 8X by HTC featuring Beats Audio also offers a unique audio amplifier powering the 3.5mm audio jack and the speaker, boosting the audio signal for even better sound no matter if you’re listening to music, playing a game or watching a video.
