I was recently gifted the sleek new Windows Phone 8X by HTC and I’ve been having a blast playing with it. Despite the fact that I wasn’t given a phone number to accompany my device, I have been using it to download various apps and to take photos galore.
As someone who went from being addicted to her Blackberry to finally embracing the iPhone, I must admit there have been countless times that I have pondered about what other telephonic contraptions could be making my life easier. Being given the chance to experiment with another kind of device has been quite the eye-opening experience. The first thing I appreciated about my new toy was the size of the screen as I prefer viewing my media on a larger scale. The interface of the Windows phone is simple to use and it really turns me on how quickly I can swipe everything. I find that on my iPhone the navigation always lags so this was a pleasant change. The only thing that has been bumming me out are the colors on the main screen but maybe I can change them and I haven’t even realized how to yet? That’s what I’m hoping, because purple and orange are not the cutest looks.
In addition to offering a Beats by Dre audio system (hell yeah dude), the HTC phone is offering a killer camera in which I used to take the above photos of my workout steeze. These images are unedited and exude the kind of color quality I need in my life. I’m looking forward to seeing what else I can do with the Windows Phone 8X by HTC. #Troop8X #HTC8
P.S. I now have purple hair!
