I got mines a few hours ago upgrading from the Samsung Omnia 7. Here is the big differences from the Omnia 7 which is basically the best first gen Windows 7 phone in the UK.

- The screen is a lot better, very sharp and bright. It's also quite soft where the Omnia 7 just felt like hard glass.

- Performance boost, there is a noticeable boost in speed, just feels even more fluid.

- Feels nicer in the hand, the Omnia 7 had good build quality with it's hard durable metallic feel. The 8X feels very smooth and thin but still feels very durable like the Omnia which was cold and hard and pointy.

My only complaint is the location of the power button, the Omnia 7 had all of it's buttons at the sides. Having a button on the top right means it's more comfortable to hold it in you're right hand as the power button is hard to reach one handed with your left hand.

Obviously there is the operating system upgrade, I've spent three hours fiddling around with several screen configurations which was fun. I can't compare it to the other WP8 devices but if you have any of the first generation windows phones, this is a massive upgrade in every way.

I've had several phones where the Audio is very disappointing by the volume being low, I was scared this phone would be the same. The 'beats enhancement' does push the audio beyond any iPod I've used. So if you want a phone for listening to this music, this phone is good enough for anyone.
