The HTC Windows Phone 8X features an 8 megapixel camera with a Back Side Illumination sensor with an F/2.0 aperture and a wide 28mm field of view. In the front, there is another F/2.0 camera which is capable of doing 2.1 megapixel still shots as well. Both the cameras are capable of recording HD 1080p videos with stereo sound.

HTC has added its trademark Beats Audio sound enhancement in the 8X but there is no beats audio headset included in the package. The HTC Windows Phone 8X comes with 16 GB of built-in storage, without any micro SD card expansion slot, so users will have to rely on cloud storage for further storage.
