Over the past few months any Windows Phones that aren’t made by Nokia are constantly getting cheaper and cheaper. The Samsung Ativ S has seen no end of price drops and now it’s the turn of the HTC 8X which has been reduced to £219.99 including VAT and delivery here.
I’ve had an HTC 8X for months now and apart from the lack of expandable memory it is a great device.
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.
