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.

I have a WP7.5 phone and my main gripe is the amount of data it seems to consume. The first month I started using it I got usage warnings from my provider which I never see under android.

I can only guess this is to do with the no-wifi-when-sleeping issue Thom describes.

That was one of the big issues when 7.0 was first released too.
