    Default Am I tho only one wishing that RIM could use the HTC 8X's design?

    the HTC 8X is literally the most beautiful phone I ever held in my hand. I'd get one if it wasn't for the fact that my contract is far from renewal. I honestly think if RIM had came out with a design of this calibre, it would be an instant hit no matter what people think of BB10.

    I find htc to design sub par quality items, that being said I'm not too fond of the htcx because it is too blue, the ear Mic part is blue.

    I like the 920 in black lot better

    Not really a fan of the 8X, held one the day I picked up my Lumia 920.

    I saw a white one (nokia) today on the train in a rubber case.But YEP could be just you to me this looks like an itouch with coloured back and windows buttons.Far as Im concerned its always good that your phone looks different from competitors so good thing BB10 dont look like this imo.

    Greddypops how many times you gonna repackage this OS and phone?? the UI interaction still not improved that list on list scrolling esh seriously why didnt they learn from the previous versions?? This is a straight get the aethsetic crowd on board.The UI and UX interaction is not doing it for me.

    The HTC8X is a pretty badass design imo but it doesn't suit the look of BB10. So to answer your question: probably.

    You are lucky I couldn't find 920 anywhere between Oct 31- Nov 25th, I know it launched on the 12th but there were reports of stores having early stock.

    I don't know if I can call it the most beautiful smartphone I've ever seen, but I can agree OP that I do really like that the 8X and the 920 just seem to stand out. They are great designs. Almost make u want to just go up to it and check it out

    You're in the minority. The UI is pretty well regarded as being the most beautiful on any smartphone. Amazon user reviews talk about a smooth, fluid and intuitive UI. They won't change it for you

    Yeah sorry I don't really like the look of the HTC 8X, I like the Nokia windows phones a lot better. And even then I like the L series better (from pictures anyways)

    I'm not a fan of the look of the new Windows phones in general, both in terms of the hardware or the UI. It's different, but that doesn't mean "beautiful".

    I like the 8X's design myself and think the different colors coincide overall with the windows theme perfectly. BB10 needs that synergy between devices that make the OS and phone design look like they belong together and not be a mashup of safe design features.

    This is a matter of personal style and taste. I personally think that the latest pics of the L-series tops the HTC 8X by a zillion times.
    Curve 8300 -> Curve 8320 -> Bold 9780 -> Torch 9860 -> Bold 9900 -> Z10
    iPad 1 -> iPad 2 -> Playbook 64gb
