HAPPY MONDAY: YOU GET A FREE PHONE

Monday, January 28



Hey guys, It was quite the unreasonably cold weekend on the East Coast. I kept my behind indoors wrapped up, bundled up, fleeces, blankets and pillows. I quite frankly refused to budge. It was the perfect time to finally play a bit more with the HTC phone I received and though. Truth be told, the hubby is already quite attached to it and now I know why.


Because I have an iPhone 5, I can only really compare the Two.  Here's how things stack up.

1.) DESIGN / FEEL: The HTC One X is a well designed and attractive looking phone with little to no pieces protruding from the case. Because its larger, I expected the HTC  to be heavy, but it is actually very thin and feels much lighter than the iPhone. Its rubberized case makes for an easy and good grip. I like that you don't really need a case for this. It already survived one drop test at a restaurant.  Unfortunately, the wider size made it a little difficult to use with just one hand. It actually got uncomfortable after a while but this may depend on the size of your hands and maybe some practice. The volume buttons on the HTC are flush to the case which makes it somewhat difficult quickly increase / decrease volume without feeling around for it.
WINNER: TIE

2.) SCREEN QUALITY: For basic browsing, you can't really see many differences. However, when I used Instagram, I noticed images were sharper, crisper and more true color on the iPhone due to the retina display.  HTC has room for improvement here.
WINNER: IPHONE 5

3.) YOUTUBE: This was not even a competition. HTC was head over heels better. First there's the bigger screen.  YouTube videos take up the entire 4.7inch screen on the HTC and look amazing!  YouTube is not optimized for the iPhone 5. In addition. YouTube HD video on HTC looked like HD and looked worse than standard definition on the iPhone.  I have to say that video loaded faster on the iPhone using the same WiFi network, but overall it just looked way better on the HTC.
WINNER: HTC One X

4.) PICTURE QUALITY: WINNER HTC One X


5. ) APPS: I was pleasantly surprised by the impressive lineup of Android Apps.  There's definitely some apps I love that still aren't available but most of the major apps that I use daily are available on the Google Play store so there wasn't much lacking there.  New apps are added everyday so that could change.
WINNER: IPHONE 5.

Don't worry, you're getting a BRAND NEW, not this one, shipped to you directly by HTC.

6.) USER EXPERIENCE:  This is my first time using Android OS so there was a slight learning curve but once I got the hang of it, the user experience was enjoyable.  The phone is quick, responsive and highly customizable so you can place your favorite apps within reach.  Also love the ability to search google right from the home screen.
WINNER: TIE

Of course I ended with a TIE. Anyways, there's probably tons more you'd like to know but hey you could just WIN ONE right here and you won't need to Spend a Dime to find out. I'll try to keep this simple... see below.


Oh and I just wanted to thank all you guys for your comments, support, participation in giveaways etc. It's cos of all of u, that people think I'm worth sending freebies to give away. Next stop an Ipad Mini??? Ok, let me stop, can't get greedy.

Heads Up: This Phone is AT&T only.
