Windows Phone 8X by HTC {Verizon} Review & Giveaway

You may have noticed my posts over the past few weeks about my new Windows Phone 8X from HTC. I have been chosen to promote this phone and most recently I showed you my home screen that is designed to help me blog when I’m on the go.

Because of my post about my home screen I was given the opportunity to give away an HTC 8X phone on the Verizon network to one of my readers!

The Windows Phone 8X from HTC has a slim design measuring 132.35 x 66.2 x 10.12 mm and packs in a lot of features for a small price tag.

  • 4.3 inch touch screen with Gorilla® Glass
  • HD 720p screen
  • 1.5 GHz, Dual-core
  • Total storage: 16 GB
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Studio-quality sound with Beats Audio™ built in
  • 8 megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash, and BSI sensor (for better low-light captures)
  • F2.0 aperture & 28mm lens
  • 1080p video recording
  • 2.1 megapixel wide-angle front camera
  • 1080p front camera video recording

The home screen is very easy to customize to your needs. You can change the placement and size of your icons with ease and there are plenty of apps available in the Windows Store. Whether you want your home screen to give you easy access to photography, social media, blogging, or organizational apps, you can find whatever you need.

I am having a lot of fun with the HTC 8X and you can too by entering to win one via the entry form below. Please note, this phone will be for use on the Verizon Wireless network.

    HTCs are great phones. I used to work for a cell phone company and these were one of the best. i love the sleek modern design and the video recording capability

  2. Michelle Proper says

    I love the fact that the home screen is very easy to customize to my needs since all this new technology makes me frustrated at times until I get the hang of things!! My kids laugh at me whenever they try and teach me new things on my phone! I am in need of a decent phone so I can give my hubby the one I currently have that does not get along with me!! Thanks so much :)

  3. Sherrie C. says

    I love the features on this phone, especially the slim design (would fit nicely into my purse) and the 8 megapixel camera to capture those special moments with the grandbabies :)


  4. Chris T. says

    For a smartphone, I will look for a big capacity of storage, megapixel of the camera, user friendly, wide touch screen and sleek looking. This phone has everything!

  5. Neil T says

    I really love the color of the HTC 8X, just really different from all the white and black phones out there now….also 720p res in a 4.3″ screen is just awesome!!!

  6. Michelle Hudak says

    8 megapixel camera makes my heart swoon. My current digital camera is only 4 megapixels and the camera on my LG Venus quit working about a year ago. I really need a phone upgrade and the HTC would be perfect.

  7. says

    This phone has great features, like Gorilla Glass. So much better than Iphones, with broken screens! I also like the fact that you can change the sizes of the icons. That’s is something I would do, if I win this phone.

  8. Lorna England says

    I had no idea Verizon was carrying a Windows phone! OR that it was affordable!
    Thanks for the review and head’s up!

  9. Samantha H. says

    I love HTC. Their phones have really come along way in the past few years and are forcing other companies to stay innovative.

  10. Bridgett zaidi says

    We are looking into new phones for hubby and I and we have been looking at the htc. Live the screen size and it takes great pictures

  11. thuy vu says

    I think that this phone would be perfect to take pictures with to post online, especially for blogs. You really don’t need a separate camera anymore.

  12. Katie H. says

    This phone looks SO pretty — I think a lot of the newer phones have all looked the same, and I think the design absolutely compliments the Windows 8 platform.

  13. Chelsea says

    I would absolutely love the htc 8x!!! I have to wait until April for an upgrade. Been patiently waiting since December!

  14. Amy L says

    Never heard of gorilla glass – but looked it up and looks like its the toughest glass. I like that! Also love the great camera features as well. :)

  15. Mel says

    I’m really hoping that HTC will make some changes in the business, I remember when they worked with Google and its G1.
