    The HTC 8XT is Sprint’s first Windows Phone 8 device, but despite the extra letter the 8XT isn’t necessarily an upgrade to the 8X we liked last fall. While visually similar, there are some significant changes, such as the addition of BoomSound speakers and a downgrade in display resolution. In an increasingly crowded lineup, can the 8XT survive on Sprint?......

    HTC turned heads last year with the 8X, a device that championed Windows Phone 8 on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile with impressive hardware inside and out. Nearly a year later, HTC is set to crane necks once again with the 8XT. Available exclusively on Sprint for $99, the 8XT improves upon HTC\'s winning design in several ways with features such as HTC BoomSound. However, HTC made some compromises to keep the 8XT in a midrange price. Find out whe...

    Pros: Comfortable soft-touch design; Expandable storage; Standard-setting audio performance; Respectable battery life

    Cons: Low-resolution screen; Mixed camera performance; Limited and slow LTE data; Windows Phone still without key apps

    The HTC 8XT is the cousin to the HTC 8X that we reviewed in December of 2012 and the HTC 8S. It shares the same unique and appealing tapered design and zingy blue color with a soft touch finish, though it's not quite California Blue. This Windows 8 phone is relatively pocketable thanks to the 4.3" display and it's relatively affordable too, selling for $99 after mail in rebate with contract on Sprint. If you've been tempted to try Windows Ph...

    Pros: What's Hot: Comfortable to hold, attractive and distinctive, BoomSound stereo speakers are above the fray, pleasing albeit low resolution display, expandable storage.

    Cons: What's Not: Low resolution display, only 8 gigs internal storage (mitigated by a microSD card slot).

    Verdict: Let's face it; if you're a Sprint customer, the HTC 8XT is your only choice among Windows 8 smartphones, though the Samsung ATIV S Neo should be coming by summer's end with largely comparable specs (except a bigger display) and a $150 on contract pri...

    Windows Phone 8 devices are finally coming to Sprint. The first of them, the HTC 8XT, is a clear descendant of the popular HTC Windows Phone 8X. We liked almost everything about that phone, so you would expect Sprint’s 8XT to be a slam dunk. Sadly, you would be wrong. The design is almost the same, but what’s under the hood is not. To get the 8XT down to $100 on contract, HTC had to make some compromises, and those choices affect the ...

    Pros: Colorful and comfortable design,Loud, rounded audio,MicroSD slot,Decent battery life,

    Cons: Low-resolution display,So-so camera,HTC's homegrown app selection can't match Nokia's,Unimpressive performance,

    Verdict: The HTC 8XT is going to get a lot of attention for the design, just as the Windows Phone 8X did. Unfortunately, once customers get past the pretty exterior they’re not going to be as impressed with what’s under the hood. Almost everything...
