The Windows Phone 8X by HTC is the flagship device for the Windows Phone 8 launch - hence the awkward name. But is it any good?

The Windows Phone 8X takes a few cues from the Nokia Lumia school of hardware design. Its body is made of colourful high-grade plastic, giving the phone a high-end feel despite being made of plastic rather than metal.

It's not without a problem or two, though. There are those pesky buttons on the side that sit flush with the body and therefore are tricky to use blind. Even with your eyes on the thing they're fairly easy to miss - using the same colour as the body. The memory is non-expandable too, and you only get 16GB of the stuff.

Other than these hardware niggles, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC is a great showcase for Windows Phone 8. The phone has a wonderfully sharp 720p-resolution screen 4.3 inches across and its dual-core processor is speedy. Although there are quad-core chips readily available, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC uses a paritularly powerful dual-core type, and it seems Windows Phone 8 doesn't need any more power anyway.
