CNET Editors' Rating
Average User Review
out of 4 user reviews
Starting at: $0.01
The good: The HTC 8XT is trim and attractive, runs long, and takes quality pictures. It also connects to Sprint’s growing 4G LTE network and has powerful speakers.
The bad: The HTC 8XT's dual-core processor is slow and applications handle sluggishly. Its Windows Phone 8 OS has a comparatively small app selection compared to Android and iOS.
The bottom line: Though the HTC Windows Phone 8X brings some needed OS freshness to Sprint, its sluggish processor and average display make it hard to recommend for anyone but committed Windows Phone 8 fans.Read CNET's Full Review Back to Holiday Gift Guide
