What is 4G?
4G is a wireless technology term meaning "Fourth Generation." 4G follows 3G as the latest addition to AT&T's mobile broadband network. When combined with enhanced backhaul, 4G means faster speeds, where data transfers take less time to complete.
AT&T has upgraded the software of its nationwide mobile broadband network with HSPA+ which, with enhanced backhaul, enables speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's already fast mobile broadband speeds. And now, AT&T is evolving to even faster 4G speeds with the launch of AT&T's 4G LTE technology in select markets.
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
How does AT&T 4G differ from other 4G networks?
AT&T is the only network offering two layers of 4G technology: HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul and LTE, both capable of delivering 4G speeds. Customers will have access to fast speeds as they move in and out of 4G LTE areas. Customers of competitors who do not have HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul are likely to see a steep drop-off in speeds when they move out of LTE areas.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.

The phone is clean, responsive and easily customized. Even more so than I imagined.
I was looking forward to moving to a Windows Phone, so I was expecting maybe a little bit of a let down once I actually obtained one, but I couldn't be happier.
The only downside to this phone is the limited storage and no ability to upgrade it. But with the skydrive sync it will just require a little closer management of media files.
Neither HTC nor AT&T add much software to the phone but Windows does enough.
The only thing I don't care for is the battery life. I'd read reviews that it wasn't good, but it is terrible. I'm a heavy texter and use social media throughout the day, but still....I'd expected a fully-charged battery to last longer than 12 hours, which is typically when I need to plug the phone says battery is critcally low and I need to charge it.
Otherwise, I'm very impressed with this phone and love it!!
HTC really have outdone themselves on the design of the body. The curves on the plastic body and glass screen are beautiful. They are so well designed that the very first reaction that I get from people when they see my phone is "Wow! That phone is SO THIN!" when in reality it's actually a bit thicker in the middle than other phones. That's a statement in itself on how well the HTC design team nailed the radii of the edges to create that sliver-thin optical illusion.
Body feels solid, though not quite Nokia solid. Tiny gaps between glass and plastic body in my unit.. but doesn't give me worry.
Buttons: not good. The sleep/wake button is at the very top left corner of the phone, but the phone is quite long, so that means it's quite difficult to reach. The more annoying thing is how flush the buttons sit; you can barely discern where they are just by feel. The button travel is also really short, so you don't get a satisfying 'click' when you press them (which is an important feedback for phone users).
Awesome. Very high ppi, so it goes toe to toe with iPhone's "retina display".
Only complaint is brightness sensing sometimes is a bit off. When in direct sunlight, it's a bit hard to read.
In a word, superb. Not joking when I say it's the best phone camera I've used so far
The optics and sensor are good, though lacking the fancy [mechanical] Optical Image Stabilization found in the Nokia Lumia 920. However, I believe in normal lighting conditions, the 8X beats the 920 in image quality by a lot. (check online reviews and comparisons) This is because the Nokia image processing, despite many updates, is still wonky (i'm a Lumia 900 owner).Read more ›
Oh, the camera! Trust it, use it as often as you can... it will not disappoint you! Great battery life (vast improvement over my Evo 4G). Overall I tried really hard to find something to gripe about and all I can think of is the volume controls: they are so flush with the body that sometimes I have a hard time finding them! All in all I highly recommend the "sensual" 8X!"

To start of this review of the HTC 8X, I'll list the pros, then the cons and finally my conclusion.
* HD Display - the screen on the HTC 8X has to be the best I've seen on a phone so far. Text look crystal clear, and image and video like they are popping out the screen and into real life. It makes its very good for videos, movie, document and etc.
* Both Cameras - The 8.1 MP camera on the rear, just blow my HTC One S camera out the water. It's very clear indoor, outdoor at night and zoomed in. The images are nice and sharp, with good color accuracy and clarity. The night time shot are unbelievable and can compete with many entries level point-and-shoot stand-alone cameras on the market. The 2.0 MP webcam is also unbelievable, not only is it clear indoor, but you can use it outside at night, with very limited light. It just set the bar higher for webcams on phones, with its clarity and sharp, not to mention color accuracy for people skin complexion.
* Back Cover - I'm not sure what possess HTC to make the back for the 8X like they did, but I'm glad they did. It's like a brand new fleece blanket on the back of the device, so soft and warm. It doesn't even feel like plastic but fur, all I k now is that it is a plus.
* Design - the 8X look like modern art, it design is simply and straight to the point. It's curve so it fit in the hand and easy to use. Also it makes the phone quite the eye candy and conversation starter. When I talk on it in public, I notice a few people staring. He he!
* Audio enhancement by Beats - The audio enhancement on this phone is the best ever.Read more ›
