Giveaway: HTC One X+

Posted By on Jan 28, 2013 | 92 comments

I am thrilled to be giving away an HTC One X+!

I have been loving some of the camera features and I wanted to share a few of them with you.

  • Continuous shooting. I just hold the shutter button and bam, a whole smorgasboard of photos. I choose which I want, delete the rest (easily) and, bam, better photo experience than ever!
  • Real settings! I can easily, without an app, adjust the ISO, saturation, white balance and so on. This makes the photographer in me very, very happy. Did I mention that it’s easy? Ahem.
  • There’s a feature called Smile Detection. It’s great if you’re trying to get a group shot of the family smiling.
  • Auto-upload. With Flickr for HTC, you can set your photos to upload immediately, daily, or wifi only. That’s great if you forget to upload/backup your camera phone photos regularly. (It’s not so great if you take inappropriate photos and your mother-in-law is one of your flickr contacts. #justsayin)
  • You can easily take photos while taking video. No, really. And really on the easily again.

Oh? And really great photo quality. Like this one of my office mate sleeping on the floor.


She’s the best, isn’t she? That was the first photo I took with the camera and I was just shocked at how crisp and clear her fur was, how bright the whole photo turned out. Shocked and pleased!

We have some fun things to show you next week with the phone, as I found out on a Snow Day that it makes for a great video camera for the boys. Even they found it to be user-friendly and easy! But to close out the month of January, I want to give you a chance to win one of your own. That’s right: I’m giving away an HTC One X+ right now!
