HTC OneX Smartphone Giveaway!

Last month, the very generous people over at HTC OneX sent me one of their new phones to test out. I have to admit, I was pretty anxious about switching from my iPhone (which I've used for years). I decided to give it a try, though, and I'm so impressed with this phone & all its capabilities.

The HTC OneX has a bigger screen than the iPhone and is considerably thinner, for those of you who like skinny phones. It has many assets, the best of which is its superior quality camera. When I was in Texas/Oklahoma last weekend for Jessie's wedding, all my friends wanted to use my camera for pictures since it was clearly the best!


The phone is really intuitive, too. For example, when I'd type a name into my iPhone and make a mistake (If I meant to call Micaela but typed in M-i-v by accident), it wouldn't recognize the name. But the HTC OneX brings up similar names, even if you're a letter off.

My second favorite function (next to the camera) is the Maps feature. There's an option to "Update Route" from wherever you are, which I find incredibly helpful when trying to navigate!

I was able to easily download all the applications I'm attached to (Instagram, etc.), and it comes already loaded with Facebook and Twitter.


Last thing I should mention: the HTC OneX is synced up with BeatsAudio by Dr. Dre, so if you have BeatsAudio headphones, the sound quality will be a-m-a-z-i-n-g (so I hear. I can't afford those headphones just yet!). 

So check it out: the folks at HTC OneX are giving me another AT&T enabled phone to give away to one reader of Bicoastally! Be excited: whoever wins is going to love it. This phone retails for $499.99! Enter below:

SO glad we had your HTC OneX phone while you were visiting! Best camera I've ever seen on a phone. I always thought the iPhone took the best photos, but this one blew it out of the water. Keep this phone so the next time we go see C.J. we can take his pics with the best of the best in cell phone cams ;)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Very cool! I'm always scared to switch from iPhone because I feel like other phones don't have the same apps. I guess I need to get over that! If I won, I'd download apps first lol!

My current phone is not that old and it is definitely not that great. That's what I get for taking the cheapest model... this would be a really nice improvement. I would probably log into all my accounts and test out the camera!

Micaela said...

Is it silly I smiled when you used my name as an example?

True story about all of us wanting to use Claire's phone for photos. The camera is AMAZING! (and I thought nothing could beat the iphone)
