HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S priced.

CMK Cellphones has the HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S listed as "coming soon". The price quoted for the HTC Windows Phone 8X is Php24,500, while the lower end HTC Windows Phone 8X is listed at Php14,500. 

The Windows Phone 8X at Php24,500 is priced competitively enough. This phone, as its name indicates runs Windows Phone 8, has a sharp 4.3-inch HD display (720 x 1280), a good quality 8 MP camera, 16 GB of internal storage and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait. 

The lower end Windows Phone 8S at Php14,500 and looks to be the better deal. This phone has a smaller 4-inch WVGA display (480 x 800), is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz Krait, has a decent 5 MP camera and 4  GB of internal storage,. The internal storage is expandable via a MicroSD card. Looking at its competition, this has the best processor available at it price range.


  1. In your opinion, can you consider the htc 8s the best at its price range? Is it better than xperia p? Considering both hardware and software? Been waiting for LG nexus 4 but it seems it will be priced higher than I expected:((

    1. If you want a Windows Phone device at a lower price, this is the best available right now.

      Against the Xperia P, on initial glance the Xperia P appears to be a better device with a higher resolution screen, a battery camera and 16 GB of internal storage. The Xperia P can also shoot 1080p video whereas the HTC 8S can only do 720p video.

      The HTC 8S has its advantages with a larger battery (no battery life test yet) and expandable memory, expandable storage and a lower sticker price.

      I think it is fair to say these are the two best phones in their price range.
