Having previously had a HTC 7 Pro, It was a toss up between getting a Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8x.
Eventually on the grounds of price, I went for the 8X.
First of all, It's a nice phone. The screen is good - and it has quite a thin form factor. Beware - it takes a micro sim, so make sure that your current provider can give you one of these before you get the phone.
In terms of the phone itself, it has much of the "standard" HTC things that you'd expect to see, and the phone itself is nice and zippy.
The sound, via Beats Audio, is pretty damn good as well - 16Gb capacity isn't too shabby. I don't think it's expandable, which is the only drawback.
Battery life - definitely miles better than the HTC Sensation I had. It seems to last a couple of days (and maybe a wee bit more) under general non-heavy use.
Finally - Windows phone 8 - nice OS. It's a nice operating system, and I really do like it.
Only one downside - the YouTube support isn't quite seamless, but that's not MS's fault in this instance.
Nice work, HTC!
