I'm selly my Samsung Galaxy S3 this week because I'm bored with it, and I have always disliked its crummy build quality. I'm looking pretty hard at the new Windows phones, specifically the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920. Any owners of these have some thoughts/advice/experiences they could share?

Thanks.

Have and use daily a Nokia Lumia 920 which I got when they went on pre-order. Rock solid and I like Windows Phone 8. Build quality is real good, battery life good, screen is super and so is the camera. Nokia has a couple of really good apps like Drive.

I've been using a Windows phone for a number of years because of the full and seamless integration with the Microsoft ecosystem -- data, mail, documents anytime, any place, any device. Hard to beat, IMO.

I soo wanted a HTC 8X, and when I left Bell I would've gotten it if only Telus or Koodo had it. I am looking at the Lumina 520, but now I have to be 100% positive that I'll love it if I pay out my existing tab.

That's really all I can add. the 8X is the most beautiful phone I ever saw.

I have the HTC 8X purple since the release, the end of november 2012 for The Netherlands. I must say it is a marvelous Phone. It does what it needs to do, is super user friendly and the battery is good to. I use it all day long without recharging during the day.

Windows Phone 8 just works great, especially if you have Windows 8 running on your desktop. Then the integration is superb. I never have to connect my Phone to the computer to get everything synced.

My advice would be to buy the 8X :thumbsup:
