I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint Sound Session. I received a sample of the HTC One to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to attend the Sprint Sound Session at the beautiful Lambs Club in NYC. I was crazy excited to attend this even because I have been a Sprint customer for over 3 years now happily on the family plan with my husband.
In addition to yummy food and the wonderful company of my fellow NYC Bloggers, I was able to find out and learn more about the new HTC One M8 (Harman/Kardon edition). This could not have come at a better time, my 2 year old iPhone 4S was on its last breaths and dying quickly!
We got to learn about the amazing features of the HTC One M8 and let me tell you, things have changes dramatically since I had an Android 2 years ago! I was able to chat with the Sprint reps and thank them for turning on service in the subways (LOVE) and discuss all the many phones I have had over my Sprint career. Since my husband and I are very serious about our phones we were able to have a fantastic conversation about phone features and the future of sound technology in our devices.
There are so many awesome features of the phone, but today I am going to share my top 3.
1) Pictures: The pictures are top notch, not only are the pictures sharp and clear but there are SO many things you can do to edit your picture without having to download any extra apps! There are countless features that can help perfect the perfect selfie including:
- Shine control
- You can even make your eyes bigger (I certainly don’t need this, but someone might!)
- Tons of filters
2) Sound: The sound on the phone is really what makes it special. Sometimes with previous phones I really didn’t like the distorted sound, but I accepted it because it was what it was. This phone has a speaker on the top and on the bottom of the phone giving the clearest, sharpest sound…ever. As a person who takes her music very seriously this is a welcome change!
3) Size: The HTC One M8 is also very sleek and sexy. Having an iPhone 4S for so long has really kept me in the dark. I love how slim the phone is! The screen is big and bright and the phone is nowhere near bulky.
Sprint is also giving away a free Spotify trial for 3 months (existing customers) and 6 months for new customers and customers with the Framily plan! For more details click here.
At the very end of the event we got the pleasure of witnessing a live in person performance from The Voice Season 2 winner, Grammy Nominated, Jermaine Paul who sang three amazing songs for us! See one of them below, this man in incredibly talented! I heard the song once and was so in love that I downloaded it immediately. Check out part of the performance below!
At the very end there was a raffle and I was lucky enough to be one of three winners to win a Harman Kardon Wireless Speaker! Dude, I screamed so loud it wasn’t even funny!
Plus, now that I have Spotify, I can now switch up my music for my half marathon training. The options are really endless and if you have ever used Spotify you know exactly what I am talking about!
