Closed-Amazing Windows Phone 8X By HTC! #HolidayGiftGuide #Feature & #Giveaway

Hey All!

With the holiday season bringing lots of amazing gift ideas, one product with its bold, super-slim design and super cool features sticks out amongst the rest! That product is the Windows Phone 8X by HTC! It is one amazing gift idea that I just had to share with you. I just got one of these amazing phones on my trusty Verizon Network.

Can I say even the box is fabulous.

As soon as you take it out of the box you don’t want to put it down. If you’re not tech savvy, no worries it comes with instructions in which come in both English and Spanish!

It’s ridiculously thin and light weight as you can see in comparison to my everyday Iphone in the background of the picture below.

It feels great in your hand and as I said it comes in fun bold colors that are inspired by the cool, clean look of Windows Phone Live Tiles.

And these are what the vibrant tiles look like on the phone!

Here’s a close up of the vivid screen!

Windows Phone 8X by HTC adds convenient features like NFC, for easy pairing and data transfer, and Verizon Wireless-exclusive Wireless Charging so you can easily keep your phone powered up. The phone also comes on At&t and T-Mobile carriers as well! I prefer the benefits of having a lightning fast 4GLTE network like Verizon. Your service powers the amazing Mapping capabilities of the phone.

As well as your Apps when you’re not in a Wifi area.

Only Windows® Phone 8 lets you see everything that’s happening in your life with a single glance, with animated Live Tiles that update in real time. You pin applications to your start screen and only certain applications have the ability to be live tiles. Organize and size them in the way that makes sense for you.

This is a great camera for everything you want to do, from self-portraits with friends to tagging and sharing on the fly. You can also squeeze in more people for self-portraits with a 2.1MP 88° ultra-wide-angle front-facing camera that captures more image area as some of the leading competitor cameras. Both the front and rear camera can capture 1080P video! As you can see in the picture below the camera captures amazing vivid photos! It’s really one of the best cameras I’ve ever seen on a phone.

You can even edit you’re photos right on the phone withPhoto Enhancer.

This is one of my favorite features on the phone since I take a ton of pictures as a blogger and with my family! It’s honestly the perfect phone if you love taking pictures and video as the quality of the photo and video is amazing. It gets perfect pictures in almost any conditions with minimized blurriness and sharp, true-to-life colors thanks to the HTC ImageChip.

The sound on the phone is also amazing as it has Beats Audio that delivers the most authentic sound experience on a phone, ever! It has deeper bass, crisper vocals, and detailed high notes for your music, games, and videos. More power means bigger sound with less distortion and noise and enough power for even high-end headphones.

With all it’s amazing features and even with playing with it for hours I was very impressed with how long the battery lasts. I literally was playing with it for hours and the screen is so vibrant I thought the battery would die quickly but it didn’t.  It only got to half battery life by the end of the day.

And when you’re all done with your phoen I think it’s really cool that you just slide your screen down to power off! This truly is an amazing phone and anyone would be thrilled to get this amazing phone as a gift this Holiday Season!

The Windows Phone 8X by HTC costs about $199 with Contract.

    I like that it has great sound and Beats Audio because the quality on my current phone is dreadful.

  2. Sue Ellison says

    I love that it can be charged wirelessly, no cables, by placing it on a charging pad(exclusive to Verizon Wireless)

  3. MelissaO says

    I love the tiles…they look so much cooler than the widgets on my current phone!

  4. Leah CB says

    I love all the camera & photo things. I love a good phone that takes great pics & videos. My kids have become dependent on the forward facing camera (my oldest likes to Good Luck Charlie style videos!)

  5. Dave L says

    I love the look of the phone and the interface. Plus, wireless charging! I rarely get a full day with my current phone (maybe the battery is going?) But with wireless charging that wouldn’t be an issue. Thank you for the chance to win. Happy holidays!

    i have been waiting for this phone to come out. I just like the fact its a better phone all around than the iphone and that it runs on windows and uses beats audio, and so much more. We are on the t-mobile plan

  7. Theresa J says

    I love the larger size and the tiles and the camera and the battery life and the sound and petty much everything about this phone

  8. Denice P says

    I like that it come in Red which is one of my favorite colors. I also like how you can edit your photos.

  9. Jennifer Cashin says

    I love that it has a really good camera- I have a good camera but never have it with me and my phone has a horrible camera so I miss a lit of photo opps.

  10. Rosey says

    The length of the battery life is my favorite feature. It doesn’t matter how great the features are if the phone doesn’t hold a charge!

  11. Renee Richardson says

    I really love the Photo Enhancer. With four kiddos I take a lot of pictures. Thanks for the awesome giveaway :)

    The bold industrial design and the all new and interesting Windows Phone user interface are the best parts of this phone!

  13. Erica C. says

  14. G Andolina says

    I Love the list of everything it does. it’s just amazing to think of all that fitting in the palm of your hand.
