Sprint HTC 8XT demoted to ‘basic phone’ status

The Sprint HTC 8XT is a “midrange phone in flagship clothing”; that’s the tagline of our full review, but even as a midrange, it is a smartphone by definition, running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone mobile platform. Sprint apparently doesn’t agree with that assessment and has demoted the HTC 8XT, as seen in the image above.

Placed under “basic phones”, right next to a Samsung, three Kyocera, and an LG device, the Sprint HTC 8XT is undoubtedly the highest end among them, when it comes to the user experience. Is this Sprint’s way of saying “nobody buys this phone” or is the Now Network trying, on the contrary, to boost its sales by placing it under the “basic phones” category, targeting those who are looking for such a phone (and who might end up with a smartphone instead)?
