Hey everyone!! I am so excited about this giveaway for you guys and wanted to be able to tell you a little bit about the HTC One X from AT&T before I posted the giveaway (although this is not the FULL review – I am waiting until the month is up for that).
So quick story – AT&T contacted me and offered to give me the HTC One X device to review and also give one away to my readers. It is part of their “It’s what you do with what we do” campaign – LOVE. They also gave me a gift card to get a fitness related device and I am so excited I finally got a Polar heart rate monitor (more on that later).
Favorite first impressions of the HTC One X :
- It is light – I seriously was amazed at how little is weighs compared to phones I have had in the past.
- The display for everything is really, really impressive.
- It has every app imaginable [at least everyone I have wanted], MyFitnessPal, Pinterest, Pandora, Instagram, FB, Twitter, GChat [LOVE], etc.
- The sounds is amazing due to the fact that it has Beats Audio.
- It has seven different screens where you can customize the different apps and widgets and it is extremely user friendly to do this.
- It is a little larger than I am used to but I think it wouldn’t bother me for that long.
- So far I haven’t noticed any service problems – which I know has been an issue with AT&T for some of my friends in the past.
Now…favorite things about how I’ve been using the HTC One X for the last week or so:
- I think that pretty much all the apps on it are better than my phone – seriously. I like the layout of the apps better and they seem to be better integrated.
- I LOVE watching HBO Go on the display – it is so clear and because the phone is 4G I haven’t had any buffer problems yet. Makes the cardio time go by quick )
- I didn’t think I would notice a difference with the Beats Audio – just because I’m not that big into super cool headphones or anything – but I swear the sound is richer.
- The camera is really awesome and also has built-in filters which is nice.
- The speed on the internet is faster than my computer. I was shocked at how good it was because I thought my phone/computer were good. Nope. It kicks their butt.
- One thing that I think is a negative is I wouldn’t be able to use it at the gym while lifting because it is too big to go on my arm [I'm also mini] so that is kind of a bummer.
Here is a screen shot but it doesn’t do it justice because I’m taking it with another camera obviously.
And finally for the giveaway!!
One reader will win a brand new (literally still sitting in the box) HTC One X ($500 value) from AT&T. Please be aware that service is not included.
Here are the rules and ways to enter:
- This is open to U.S. Residents only [I know I'm sorry ] I am double checking on this and waiting on a response.
- You can enter once a week until September 30th (that is five times) by posting a comment under this post about how you use technology to stay fit. If you enter multiple times please try to find your original comment and just comment under that so I can see all of your entries at once.
- You can get up to three extra entries a week by sharing this link on Twitter but you must use the hashtag #ItsWhatYouDo and include my handle and AT&T [so that I can count them - you do not have to leave a comment here when you do this], so something like: Giveaway from @ATT and @monika_fit #ItsWhatYouDo http://bit.ly/Uy4pGA
On another note I have a goal to reach 10000 “Likes” on FB so if you love this blog please, please share it with other people you think would enjoy it.
Disclosure: AT&T gave me the HTC One X device and a gift card to participate in the review and campaign.
