If the Verizon 8X has 32GB storage them I'll get it with no reservations. If it is just 16GB like all the other versions then I'll be seriously considering the Ativ S, providing it comes to Verizon.
I just filled up my 16GB Trophy again yesterday. This happens about once a month and I have to go digging through my phone to find things to delete so I have more space again.

Edit: just checked out my phone. It is 16... guess only Verizon has 16?
DOUBLE EDIT!!!!: nvm i guess there is a difference between the 7 Trophy and Verizon Trophy

The 8X looks nice and has decent specs but, having only 16GB pretty much guaranteed that it was off the list for consideration by me. 16GB may be fine for some and, if so then the 8X is definitely worth considering but, personally 32GB and/or expandable storage is a definite requirement for me on my next WP.

+People who live in low signal area may have issues also
We don't know if HD app are cloud enabled so the new apps may consume more gigs than 7.5 apps...We know that app settings can
What's enough gb? At best it's subjective...like making an absolute statement that a 1000sq feet house is too big for all families

I normally would complain about the 16GB, but then I got a 16GB Trophy and still have yet to use all the storage. The apps are tiny and I have plenty of music on it - it just means I have to be more selective in what I load for certain things.
I've thought about upgrading Skydrive just so I can put all my music in the cloud so I can pull down whatever I need at a WiFi hotspot.

The HTC is the device for those of us on modern 4G networks without relic concepts like data caps. We T-Mos have virtually unlimited cloud storage, without caps and restrictions, so we don't need the obsolete local storage that AT&T and Verizon users must suffer with as a crutch imposed by the limitations of their inferior networks. ;)

I am just a happy customer. It pains me to see my fellow people paying higher prices for worse services.
Local storage only matters when you've got a fire hose that shuts off when it fills a Dixie Cup (capped 4G). Remove the caps, and life rocks. Seriously, now that I don't have to track data usage, I'm doing so much more with my phone!

I don't see what the fuss is about the 8x having only 16gb of storage, it is afterall a mid to lower range wp8 device. Lower amount of storage, smaller screen, lower resolution, no real innovative features like wireless charging. Not to mention, the custom apps for HTC phones just aren't that great. It does have dr dre beats audio included, which should make the tennis ball yellow model appeal even more to it's target demographic of 15-17 year old girls though.
(sorry, just wanted to see what it's like to troll. pretty unfulfilling. I'm sure the mods will delete this post, which really is fine because I don't mean anything that I just said, I like the 8x just fine, i'm just trolling for reactions...)

Sometimes I wonder if the way we consider device prices and mass memory together is something Apple has put in our heads because that's what they use in their price models. Mass memory is a relatively expensive component, but 200$ price difference between 16 GB and 64 GB? You've got to be kidding.
But anyhow, more is still better as it gives additional options available. I currently have a 16 GB device with unlimited data plan so I'm getting by fine, but there are times I'd hope to have more. This becomes true especially when travelling (in Europe) when you can't rely on your data plan. 16GB becomes somewhat cramped after you've downloaded offline maps and Spotify playlists ready for your trip, at least if you're planning to record some videos.

Sure, I don't get HSPA+ in the middle of the high desert in Death Valley... but I don't really travel there often, and I'm not willing to pay 3x the monthly tariff to get ridiculously low data caps that I have to drink through the EVDO sippy-straw. ;)
It just amazes me that many subscribers are willing to pay $250/month or more to get the same level of service that I pay about $62/month for.
