Thanks for the posts everyone. I decided I'll stick with Nokia 'cause well, the 8X is kinda old and HTC don't support Windows Phones like Nokia do.

I had a Nokia 920 for a while, then changed to the 8X.

Money isn't flowing too greatly in my household so I can never buy a phone new off the shelf - I have waited for up to 12 months before buying it before.


The 920 was great but I was annoyed that many of the "exclusive apps" were still asking for a fee.  I guess that was my naivety.  In the end I sent it back as I simply couldn't afford to keep it, despite the greatness of the camera.

I opted for the 8X.  Obviously similar in the way it works, the camera isn't as great and the Beats Audio seems to do nothing.  In hindsight I should have stuck with the 920 but I wouldn't have used the charging pillow (£70 additional cost), and therefore the weight wasn't worth it.


HTC may not support their phones "as much as Nokia" but I have the GDR-2 update and will expect the GDR-3 soon.  However being sim free helps a lot, hence I buy my phones straight from Amazon or wherever.


But in a year, year and a half, I'd be looking to go back to the Lumia range of phones as I still like their look.

I have an 8X and it's been fine, though I do wish I had all the added Nokia bits.  Anyways, the point is going to be moot soon anyways with MS buying Nokias hardware division.  Next year should be interesting with WP8.1 and what they do with it.

As a former 8X owner (it was stolen :/), I'm happy I moved to Nokia (have a 520 atm) and I'll be getting a 925 when it becomes available in Holland.

I have 8X and I like it a lot, but since MS bought Nokia, it will be better if you get 925. If I were to choose between the two TODAY, I would choose 925 over 8X.
