My wife is due for an upgrade and is contemplating an HTC 8X after years with an iphone on AT&T. Are any of you former ifolks and now using the 8X? Happy with the switch or disappointed with the 8X?
I use a Lumia 920 so she is somewhat familiar with WP8. Just interested in the forum thoughts.

See if she can get on with the Lumia 920 first.
If this was Verizon I would wholeheartedly suggest her to get the 8x but the Lumia 920 vs the windows phone 8x....nokias app and better support va HTc.....beats? Lol its a no brainer really.
That being said I adore the windows phone 8x and in my opinion if there was Nokia, I would still own my 8x today. So she can't really go wrong.

Aluminium of new iPhone 5 is very bad quality and get scratches easily!
I would have agreed to your Apple quality statement 1 or 2 years ago but all the other major companies in the electronic-industry caught up. Same or even better quality with their flag-ship devices.

I went from iPhone 4 on Sprint, to canceling my plan and getting an unlocked HTC 8x (verizon model) and using it with T-mobile's prepaid.
I thought I would miss my iPhone but I honestly don't. I'm in love with the screen on the 8x and I'm a music junkie so Beats audio paired with my NOC NS400 Titanium in ears is a real treat.
Skype is still in beta but i get better quality making "computer to computer" (without video) phone calls than I did with my iphone. the camera takes stellar pictures (i've heard the lumia 920's is insane but the pictures I take upload to facebook, not a museum) and the front facing camera takes hi def video.
I've never been an app junkie so the sparsity on the windows store really doesn't bother me. I'm waiting for my bank to develop an app and instagram and if they do, well then I'll have pretty much everything i used on my iphone.
So far i've dropped my phone twice (no case) and it withstood the drops with grace. i have no build quality issues but recently it did reboot on me a couple times, which doesn't really bother me since it's a mini computer... and sometimes these smart phones need to be restarted.
hope this helps with your decision :)
