Hey. I'm planning on getting a new phone, and this phone looks decent, and fits within my budget. I'm just after people's thoughts about the device, pros, cons, etc. The 8X is out of the question. Are there any other Windows Phones which are about the same price(ish) that are worth considering?

Ideally I want to know what it would be like playing a game or using apps on it for example, just for performance and what it would be like to have every day.

Now, this is the reason I haven't put this in the Windows Phone section...

Is a Windows Phone worth it, or is the only alternative for someone who can't afford an iPhone? I know there's plenty of Andriod phones, but the only decent ones by the looks of it are out of my price range, or are there any that I've missed that are about the same price as the HTC? Is Andriod worth it?

Thanks.

An extra thought; I have an iPod Touch 2nd Generation which is my current 'smart' device. I want this phone to replace this, so I'm wondering about performance. The HTC 8S has 1 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, whereas my iPod has a 0.5GHz processor and 128MB of RAM. Clearly the phone can out-perform the iPod, but will things be that noticeable? Is the GPU good enough to play games such as Angry Birds, etc?

I purchased this phone last night. Syncing contacts was a headache. I made a csv, imported it to hotmail, synced but only the contacts would show up & not their phone numbers. After trying twice to sync with Hotmail, I finally synced my GMail and contacts with phone #s showed up.
I recommend you save your contacts to SIM card, if you want quick access. I don't know why they didn't just let you import a vcf file via the sd-card, so retarded.

The OS is fluid and looks nice. 8S looks slick and is slim. The screen is nice, at least for me, since I used to use a wildfire. 512mb RAM isn't sufficient, as I installed a small game called Air Hockey and it lagged during multiplayer.
Get the blue color, it looks elegant. Oh and unlike android, there is no quick access to turning on the internet, so you have to go to settings, mobile network and then turn on Data, which takes ages.
