HTC announced two unique Windows Phones this week at its New York event. The HTC 8X and HTC 8S provides ample choice between Samsung, Nokia and HTC for consumers. The 8X, being the more advanced sibling, leaves the 8S slightly behind, but we shouldn't ignore its stunning design.

Judging interest in new Windows Phones is quite a task, but if UK deals website Hot UK Deals is anything to go by we could be looking at a strong following who are eagerly awaiting the release of the HTC 8S

This comes as a slight surprise to us as the HTC 8S is less advanced than the HTC 8X, which sports features that consumers would be more attracted to. That being said, the 4" LCD 2 display, SD card slot, 4G storage, 512MB RAM, 1Ghz dual-core chip, and 5MP shooter aren't to be overlooked.

The HTC 8S is currently sat at 959 degrees on Hot UK Deals, which is quite some heat. Much like Reddit, users can up-vote (or down-vote) submissions - deals in this case. The HTC 8S is actually the hottest deal of the day and is still climbing.

The link submitted was that of UK retailer Unlocked Mobiles, which has revealed pricing for both the HTC 8X and HTC 8S. Set at £399 and £225, should these prices be accurate we'll be looking at a good deal for consumers. This will have played na important part in the sheer number of votes.

To compare this with the HTC 8X, the older and more advanced Windows Phone is sat at just 89 degrees on the same website. Looks like the design, features and more importantly the price has made a positive impact for potential sales.

Will you be purchasing the HTC 8S? Be sure to join in discussions and let us know in the comments.
