The HTC Windows Phone 8X, in my opinion, this is the best iteration of HTC’s signature Windows Phone so far. The 8X got me through a full day of solid use with plenty of life to spare, and light users will likely get a day and a half. Phone calls sounded perfectly clear and static-free, and our LTE tests yielded average speeds of 30 Mbps down and 11 Mbps up.
People who are interested in getting a Windows Phone and are loyal to Verizon have a great option.
