"Smooth and Beautiful!"5.0 starson by MattManDo1ngAReview
Pros: - Polycarbonate body with rounded sides and smooth corners feels great in your hand.
- Front facing camera easily captures you and the whole scene!
- California Blue or Fire Engine Red are awesome and set the phone apart on a visual level as well.
Cons: - Battery life takes about 1 week of discharge and recharging to get the most life out of it. Easily longest lasting battery (73% by 5pm) I've ever seen in a phone.
Summary: Truly an awesome phone to hold an use! The 8X fits so smoothly in your hand as the rounded corners and Gorilla Glass screen seem to almost be made of a solid piece of magic. The Polycarbonate body has a nice texture that doesn't feel cold like metal or lifeless like most plastic. Very organic feeling. There has been no need for me to use a cover as I didn't want to mess with the overall look and feel of the phone except I did find it easier to keep it clean (as with any device) as dirt and grime will eventually begin to show. Thankfully HTC makes colour matched hard cases as it would be a shame to hide such beautiful and unique coloured phones. The inclusion of a dedicated shutter button is a great and welcome addition and can also be set to wake the phone to capture images almost instantly. Very handy if you have kids or are trying to capture a moving target quickly. If you like music you'll appreciate the Beats Audio especially if you have a good set of headphones to maximize your listening pleasure. Overall an unbeatable choice for your next phone. Even my die hard Apple friends have made the switch and are happy they have. :)
