The HTC 8X offers solid but not outstanding image quality in a well-built and compact package that feels nice in the hand. However, the camera UI is focused on simplicity and can feel slightly cumbersome to those who like to change their camera settings frequently. With no built-in HDR, burst or panorama modes the HTC 8X's feature set looks a little limited next to the top-end Android and iOS competition, but the device is definitely worth a closer look for mobile photographers who are invested in the Windows Phone OS.
