    Serious question - I can get both for the same price per month with exactly the same deal. What would people go for? Leaning towards the 8X personally.

    I've got an 8X, it is lovely. If I had the choice again though, I'd hold out for the Lumia 920.

    Really depends whether you want Android or Windows Phone 8. On paper the Nexus 4 has slightly better specs, but in practice I suspect there's not that much in it.

    As an Android fan and a Nexus 4 owner I'd say get a Nexus 4, but again it really depends on which OS you prefer/like the look of more.

    Android is a lot more open and versatile and with the newer versions (like on the Nexus 4) it's also very slick.

    Windows phone is a lot more locked down and the app store is a lot more limited, but I do love their live tiles and messaging and social network integration are both handled really well imo.

    I've not used the 8X but I reviewed the 8S and it was a thoroughly solid handset and the 8X by all accounts is better. On the other hand the Nexus 4 by and large has better reviews.

    Cheers guys - stuck getting a new phone via Virgin, who've just got the Nexus 4 but sadly not the One X+ in.
