While better known for their Android phones, with the Windows Phone 8X HTC have shown that they can work with other platforms. They’ve taken the Windows software used by the likes of Nokia and combined it with their own style to create a sleek interface and a product that can stand up to its Windows based competitors.

Software

Windows Phone 8 hasn’t spread as widely as Android or Apple’s iOS software, but this is probably just a matter of time. Microsoft provide access to the top apps you would expect such as Netflix, Twitter and Facebook, as well as their own computing software in the form of Word. A meeting point between the software you’re used to on your phone and what you see on your desktop PC, with time this will doubtless make a smoother connection between the different devices in your life.

The interface is straightforward to use and this version brings improvements from previous Windows Phone software, including safe mobile payment, a navigation program that includes public transport directions, and media streaming via Xbox.

Screen

The high definition 4.3 inch screen with 1280 x 720 pixels provides better resolution for its size than the iPhone, making it a leader in the world of phone screens. Its S-LCD2 technology provides clearer colours than many competitors for an excellent entertainment experience. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass to make it tougher and less vulnerable to accidents.

Cameras

HTC’s advertising shows the pride that they take in their cameras, and you’ll be equally pleased with the photos you get. There’s an 8 megapixel rear facing camera with high quality flash, touch focus, photo editing and geo-tagging. It can also record high definition video which comes with video light and auto focus.

The front facing camera is also impressive at 2.1 megapixels. It’s great for taking selfies and making video calls over Windows’ Skype software.

Connectivity

The HTC Windows Phone 8 comes with top notch 3G connectivity and even 4G on some models. As you would expect it also comes with WiFi and Bluetooth as well as DLNA and A-GPS, allowing all manner of connections to the other devices and networks around you. With high speed data transfer and masses of coverage it’s easy to stay connected.

Big things in a small package

For such a slim phone the HTC Windows Phone 8X has a lot of power and features. There’s a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, letting you run several big apps at once without slowing the phone down. 16GB of storage means you can load up with apps and other media without disrupting performance.

The inclusion of Beats Audio also means you’ll get some of the best sound quality available on any phone.

A splash of colour

HTC are one of the companies moving away from the usual smartphone design palette of black, white and chrome into something a bit more lively. As well as traditional black you can get the HTC Windows Phone 8X in a deep blue or bright red or yellow.

A fun phone

With its bright colours, high end camera and powerful specs, the HTC Windows Phone 8X is a great phone to play around with.
