I found this comparison useful for 920 v 8X

Yeah in some respects the 8X seems more like a competitor to the 820 (screen size, storage space, weight etc) but in any case I think its a solid phone, looks gorgeous on the hands on videos and its going to be cheaper than the 920 without a doubt.
At the end of the day it all comes down to choice, the 920 screen and weight is too large for my needs so the 820 was the contender for me but now the 8X is up there. Will really come down to who hits the market first and pricing

4S doesnt have front facing camera
so this http://techcrunch.co...o-one-will-buy/ is sadly right

I don't think the 8S is midrange at all, it's obviously low-range IMO. I mean dual 1Ghz and 512MB of ram with very low internal storage (though you have a microSD slot). All of that says low range, why anyone would think it's "mid" is crazy.
If the 8X is going to hit AT&T for $199 I bet the 8S will be free with a contract from the start.

Yeh, the Lumia 920 is definitely the headship WP8 device still. In terms of WP devices, I don't see anyone taking the crown from Nokia for now.
Of course if you toss in the Nokia apps that I just don't see HTC competing with then they pull a good deal ahead IMO.
Which Apple device comes with 8GB capacity? Apart from the iPod shuffle (2GB), the rest of the iPod/iPad/iPhone range have a minimum capacity of 16GB. It's not just the "media hungry people" that can fill up 16GB easily as newer apps can take up to a few GBs of space and then you have your photos, music, movies/videos, etc.
There probably just isn't a big enough demand for 32GB and up, when you still have apple making 8GB and 16GB options for it's devices I think that says it all.

They're talking about the live tiles again.
Side view of the device.
HTC finally took the veil of their 8X device featuring Windows Phone 8. The device features an array of various technologies, including a 4.3” Super LCD2 display with Gorilla Glass2 at 720P resolution. In addition, the 8X features a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of non-expandable storage.
But perhaps the most interesting feature besides the included NFC and 8MP BSI camera, is the Beats audio software and hardware. The software features some advanced DSP and signal correction technology but the 8X also features a 2.55v amplifier to greatly increase sound output.
And just as important, the HTC 8X will be coming to AT&T (US) for an estimated price of $199...
Likewise, the phone features a 2MP front-facing camera with an F2 aperture and 88 degree wide-angle view, geared for better self-shots when out with friends. The camera also features HTC’s dedicated image processor for fast image rendering.
