SUPER excited to bring you guys an awesome giveaway today - When HTC asked me to try out the One X+ for blogging, I was geeked. A - Free Stuff (love it). 2: Tech + Fashion? Yes Please! and on top of that, I get to give one away to you guys. But not after we dive into whether or not you can actually blog with it.
All of today's outfit photos were taken with the One X+. I'm constantly working to improve my photos and love my DSLR, but I don't always have it with me (or the time to snap outfit photos). So the idea that a mobile phone could be a substitute for my beloved Nikon definitely piqued my interest.
The HTC One X+ boasts a 8mp camera with a 28mm, 2.0f lens - and comes with 64 GIGS of space! Plenty of room for hoarding photos of your shoes. It lets you simultaneously shoot video and snap photos, which is perfect for taking pictures of my dog. The camera is easy to work, and images come out quite crisp when you take them, almost as if there's an applied sharpness to the camera app. There's a setting that lets you take photos just by tapping the screen though, which I love. The flash is a little power house too. They were large enough that I could crop them and still size them down for this blog (so I didn't lose quality). And I looooooove this - I could share them immediately from my camera roll to dropbox so I could grab them on my laptop and open in photoshop in like, 2 seconds.
Not bad, right? And I was toting an iPhone 4S before this, so this thing is fast, too. LTE is a little ridiculous - as in, faster than my home wifi sometimes. I'll post a review later on more phone specs and talk about the transition from iOS to Android, but I have to say I've been pretty impressed with this little guy.
Other cool features on it I thought were great for fashion blogging - the front camera actually takes pretty great photos and does a countdown when you hit the shutter so you can position yourself properly. Perfect for those outfit selfies. And it still has all of my favorite fashion apps - including Pose (yay!).
SO....you so want one now, don't you? Good. This thing is like $600 without a contract and I'm pretty sure you're going to love it, so I'm giving one away which let's face it, is kind of cool for all of us. Just enter via Rafflecopter at the bottom here and I'll choose a winner on Friday, Feb 1st! You can enter daily if you like spamming your friends on Twitter, but you don't have to do everything to win. Just pick and choose your favorites. Please note - this is an AT&T Phone (but still has great wifi). Good luck!
