HTC’s Windows Phone 8 running smartphones are made to compete with the Samsung Ativ S and the Nokia Lumia 920/820. But they are all packed with the best features, they all come in various colors, and they all sport attractive design. So which model do users have to choose? If they make their choice relying on the brand’s popularity, then there will be no winners as HTC is falling, many people yet do not trust Nokia and Samsung is more familiar to Android fans. So there is only one distinguishing feature — the pricing.
The first retailer to announce pricing details was Expansys UK. Having set aggressive pricing the retailer is already getting pre-orders for the HTC Windows Phone 8X at £399.99, while the HTC Windows Phone 8S costs £224.99 unlocked. The latter is way cheaper than the HTC Titan running Windows Phone 7.5, which means those who want to own a WP8 smartphone at an affordable price should take a look at the mid-range HTC Windows Phone 8S.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is said to cost a bit cheaper, and if it is so, this can be called a total attack on Android.
