Reviews for the HTC Windows Phone 8XT

HTC 8XT for Sprint: what's different?
Source: Engadget English
All told, we like the little tweaks HTC has made on the 8XT, and the lack of Sprint branding makes it look even classier. While it doesn't offer the most beautiful display, the remaining aspects of the phone help make up for it in terms of value. It might not be different enough to persuade Android or iOS users to switch.

60% HTC 8XT

Although it looks much the same as the 8X, HTC cut some sharp corners getting the 8XT into the sub-$100 price range, such as equipping it with a subpar display. That it's exclusively paired with Sprint, the nation's smallest LTE carrier, doesn't help either.
