Windows My new phone arrived today: a blue HTC 8X, running Windows Phone 8. As a huge Windows Phone fan put off by several persistent issues in Windows Phone 7.x, I'm basically giving this platform another shot, and in this day and age such a second chance doesn't come cheap: the 8X is 539 EUR, after all. Here's a few quick first impressions after less than a day of use.

No wifi on sleep?

What about the cell data connection (3G, LTE, ect)? Does it disconnect when it sleeps as well? That would be kind of a deal breaker for most people I know.

If the data connection is stil active, then why does it matter that it takes a while to reconnect to wifi? Is the switch over noticeable? Do you have an extensive LAN that you interact with on your phone often after waking it up? I don't quite understand the issue you're having.
