I had the amazing pleasure of attending a HTC/Sprint event about the new HTC One-M8 Harmon/Kardon Edition. I was excited to see what was in store at the Lamb’s Club.
The decor was lovely and both Sprint and HTC reps were there to help with all of our questions.
There was some HTC-M8on the tables and I decided to dig in and do a little playing around with the new phone.I have to say I was not to “hip” on new gadgets and technology. I like simple and easy things to operate. After having my Samsung Galaxy I was turned from a regular phone to a smart phone. So I was excited to see if this phone also measured up.
Here are some techno facts for you “techie” people out there in the market for a phone:
Operating system: Android 4.4 (Kit Kat)
Talk time: up to 22 hours
Display: 5 inch Full HD 1080p (1080×1920)
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor
Memory: 32 GB Rom/2GB RAM
That is all well and good statistical information but I am a simple Blogger. I fell in love with the music and camera on this phone! With a 5MP front facing camera and Ultra Pixels rear facing. This camera has effect filters, frames and special effects like the one above (“cartoon”).
These pictures are clear, perfectly sharp and crisp. I have to say even the “soft focus” is as good as my $400 camera! You can choose, how much or how little, you want the background to soft focus. This is a feature my camera does NOT have!
Then we stopped for lunch.
Can I just stop and say if you visit New York City, the Lambs Club have amazing food!
They also have friendly staffed and the decor is divine!
Next up Sprint Music Plus, Next Radio and Spotify! They were demonstrating four speakers & dual passive radiators which deliver exceptional performance. These speakers have 5 hours of playback time using internal battery, unlimited playback when connected to power source! Can we say “Hello” my new device for camping out with the family! Sprint also allows you to stream radio too! With Spotify you can stream a whole album and then save songs when you are not using the app.
Spotify Premium, allows you to stream your music everywhere.
Just hit play on your device and VOLA! Plane, train or living room!
Stream anything you like, or go offline and listen to your saved music. This is better then Pandora in my opinion. We have been trying it out in the Western New York country areas and this coverage lasts! I have to say I am rather impressed with the service coverage, HTC phone and Music apps.
We ended the event with a serenade by The Voice Season 2 winner Jermaine Paul.
