"This speaker is the best speaker I've ever heard on a phone because Dr. Dre is inside it".

Windows Phone enlisted the help of Holly Willoughby and James Corden for their latest TV advertisements.

We caught James Corden unboxing the new Windows Phone 8X by HTC and he treated us to some unique, unscripted opinions.

When MSN Tech reviewed the flagship Windows Phone 8X we said:

"The HTC 8X is a smashing phone for someone who wants an elegant, functional handset that does what you’d want a smartphone to do. It’s not as easy to get lost in as an Android device if you’re a novice, and is a great alternative to an iPhone. It’ll certainly raise eyebrows when you pull it out – not just because its colourful, but as it’s so well made and beautiful in the hand."

We awarded it 4 stars out of 5.

Learn more about Windows Phone 8

Windows Phone 8 is based on the same underlying technology that powers Windows 8. This brings the phone's software closer to a Windows PC and lets games developers write the same game for Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

The only difference between Windows 8 and the phone is the size.

Faster, more powerful phones

Windows Phone 8 handsets are powered by dual/quad-core processors (the same kind of technology you will find in the Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 5 etc.) This means your Windows Phone will run faster than ever before.
