WP8 Verizon: 8x vs 822

If you want WP8 on Verizon you have a pretty clear choice.

Aside from the stigma of one being a flagship device (HTC 8x) and one being the low-cost option (Nokia 822) what are the ACTUAL differences between the two phones? Consensus among most fans is that the 8x looks pretty nice and the 822 is just an afterthought. I was thinking that too until i saw a spec breakdown and the guts are near identical.

UPDATE: It looks like screen resolution and front camera are only real spec differences HTC 8x vs. Nokia 822 Comparison
