HTC 8XT vs HTC One (Video)

The HTC 8XT. It’s Sprint’s first Windows Phone in literally years, and it’s one of the only HTC devices in the carrier’s lineup. So say you’re stuck choosing between this and the much-ballyhooed HTC One. Besides software, are there really that many differences between the high-end offerings from Microsoft and Google on the Now Network? Is there really enough disparity here to justify a video expedition titled “HTC 8XT vs HTC One?”

In a word: yes. Because despite its flagship-esque model number, the 8XT actually more resembles a midrange phone than a high-end halo device. Think HTC 8S meets HTC 8X, with insides sprayed with Sprint Yellow and outer hull coated with a soft and supple layer of California Blue. It’s pretty, but does it stand a chance against one of the highest-rated smartphones ever?

We’ve got a full review of HTC’s bluest Windows Phone yet coming very soon, but until then, check out how it fares against the venerable aluminum stalwart in terms of hardware, software, optics, and a few test notes. It’s HTC 8XT vs HTC One, and it’s happening right now.
