Can HTC 8X Outshine Nokia Lumia 920?

When it comes to the smartphone arena, sometime back, HTC was considered a faint player when compared to the other tech giants including Apple, Samsung, Nokia and others.

However, the Taiwanese handset has now marked a prominent position for itself with the launch of several advanced smartphones including One X, One S, Desire X, One X+, 8X and 8S based on Android and Windows Phone platforms.

Lately, Nokia also launched a couple of Windows Phone 8 handsets - Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 that are based on the latest incarnation of the Microsoft platform - Windows Phone 8. Moreover, Nokia is also planning to release the Windows Phone 8 based Lumia 920 in November.

Though Nokia Lumia 920 comes with advanced features like wireless charging and glove-friendly touchscreen display, the HTC offering with a better display, lightweight profile, better front camera and Beats Audio integration has evidently has all the potential to pose a big threat to Nokia's flagship smartphone.
