Most of you already know I am part of the fabulous #VZWBuzz Lifestyle Blogger Team, which is amazing. Every now and again they sends us phones and other items to try to share with you. If you haven’t already heard HTC is updating things, the already awesome HTC One smartphone just got a little better, and the ONLY place you can grab it is from Verizon Wireless.
Starting with a larger screen, better software, and a rocking camera. It’s a fabulous phone that shouldn’t be passed up. You can find the HTC One exclusively at Verizon Wireless for 16 days, which started on March 25th! I know, I am sorry I am 2 days late posting, but I have not had good internet to get much of anything done, lucky for me Verizon Wireless has a nice reliable hotspot I can connect too, and I use that for everything when needed.
First you will notice the new HTC One offer an awesome design, it’s sleek, and nice with the full metal body, soft curves, tampered edges, and 5 inch Full HD display. The new HTC One knows when you pick it up, which means no more needing to wake up your smartphone by pressing a button. Simply swipe the screen in different directions to access features.
Be sure to check out the content on BlinkFeed, which you will find on your new HTC One’s home screen. HTC One owners can get updates from all their favorite sources, such as: entertainment, weather, news, fashion, sports, social networks, and more. It’s easy to use, and makes the things you love easier to access.
One of my favorites the clear, balanced sound! If you’re like me and my family, you jam using your smartphone. Music, videos, and even your games will sound powerful due to the dual front facing speaking and the awesome HTC BoomSound. This is an enhanced amplifier that offers balance to boost bass and give you nice crisp and clear vocals. The speakers help make the new HTC 25 percent louder than it’s predecessor. See, it’s sounds pretty awesome right!
HTC One Camera
Don’t forget about the camera, it’s the one feature I refuse to overlook. I need a phone with a great camera, especially after being spoiled with the Lumia Icon from Verizon. Good news, the HTC One has a fabulous camera, with amazing features that you cannot go without checking out. If you are like me, the camera matters about as much as how well the phone makes a call, lol. I know it might sound crazy, but I use my phone to snap pictures of my family, and for my blog. I need those pictures to look great. I am really excited to give the new HTC One’s camera a whirl. The Duo Camera with UltraPixel helps you capture more light and depth. The uFocus allows users to change the focus on objects in your picture after you have taken them. The Dimension Plus, allows you to ad 3D style to your images! Pretty cool right, adding 3D to your images, as well as background effects with Foregrounder!
The Duo Camera has UltraPixel, which helps to capture more light and depth providing you with a better picture. Holding the camera horizontally, and pressing the volume button will quickly launch the camera.
The UFocus allows HTC One users to change the focus on objects in their pictures after you snap your shot. Due to Dimension Plus, add 3D to your pictures.. YES, I said add 3D to your pictures, all you will need to do is tilt your HTC One to see different angles, add backgrounds and effects with Foregrounder.
HTC One users can put their memories into play with ZoeHighlights, which picks the top images from an event and crafts an awesome 30 second slide show that you can show off.
Another important part of a smartphone is the apps. Not to worry you will still have tons of great apps available in Google Play. Your device will come with tons of great media that you will have access to right away, and if it is not already listed you can visit Google Play and download it.
You can get the new HTC One for $199 for a Buy One Get One Free (bogo) with a contract, or by using the Verizon Edge program, and in that case the HTC One would cost about $21 a month. To learn more about the HTC One or any other Verizon Wireless device or plan visit VerizonWireless.com.
