How the HTC 8X stacks up to other Windows 8 phones

Amber Bouman | Sept. 20, 2012
On Tuesday night, HTC posted a sly tease on its Facebook and Twitter pages--a photo that showed only the corner edge of a device with a banner that read 19.9. All became clear Wednesday morning when that mystery device was revealed to be the HTC 8X. Along with the HTC 8S, the newly unveiled 8X will make up the company's Windows Phone 8 lineup.

While the HTC 8X may stack up quite comparably to the likes of the ATIV S and Lumia 920, the elephant in the room is how it might be able to compete with the iPhone 5, which arrives in stores this Friday. While the 8X has an eye-catching design, and stellar audio and camera capabilities that make it a great addition to the Windows Phone 8 landscape, it seems unlikely to win over Apple fans. Still, if its camera can produce images to rival the Lumia 920, the 8X could pull in a slew of folks ready to try out Windows Phone 8 software.
