HTC 8XT for Sprint: what's different?

As a modified version of last year's 8X, the 8XT is a decent upgrade for Sprint customers using Windows Phone 7, but it won't persuade anyone to switch carriers or change platforms.

Pros
  • BoomSound audio experience better than most
  • Fun design
  • Comes with latest build of WP8
  • Removable SIM and external memory slot
Cons
  • Display not as good as its predecessor or competition
