I hope that you'll forgive that this post is long overdue. Between moving in with and getting married to my now husband, the past few months have been chaotic to say the least, now I finally have a chance to share what I have been meaning to for months! On the day before my move, I was invited to hang out with editors from accross the world as we got to try out the HTC One while touring the city on a special HTC Design Tour.
Our tour was curated by the staff at HTC and gave us an inside look into a city that I have lived in for the past seven years. Fortunately for me I saw places that I never would have thought to go. Adventures that I might not have otherwise taken. Design to want to own and new places to make wish lists for all while testing out the HTC One. After the tour, I was a believer that the HTC One was the slickest phone around.
With dual front speakers and sound by Beats by Dr. Dre, the phone offers unparalleled sound. What silly industrial designer decided to put speakers on the back of a phone originally anyways?
In addition, the camera was fully loaded to take burst shots where you could save all or just the best shots, slow-mo video, take pictures from your video footage, snap pictures and video simultaneously and the cherry on top of it all the HTC Zoe.
What is the Zoe? It allows you to take high definition 3 seconds snippets of footage at a time. Sort of a moving snapshot that can be combined with photos and videos at the end of the day for a seamless low effort 60-second music video of your day without any effort at all. For me, I used HTC Zoe to record moments during my honeymoon and share the events of each day in an exciting format with my friends and family on Facebook to which I received many oohs and ahhs. There are 12 exciting and different themes each with their own photo effects and music.
Now taking a note from the gold hardware and accessories that are ever popular with the fashion set, the HTC One is getting a limited edition luxury upgrade to win. From now through January 5th, six lucky tweeters will have the chance to win a very special 24kt gold HTC One!
Starting, November 25th, HTC will be unveiling a digital billboard in Times Square showcasing beautiful photos taken by visitors to Times Square and people across the U.S. In addition to the thrill of having their images splashed across Times Square, those who submit photos may also be eligible for a chance to win an HTC One each week, and two lucky winners will receive a special edition 24kt gold-plated HTC One valued at more than $2500.

If you're not up for trying your luck at winning, HTC is offering a pretty amazing two-day Black Friday offer for the HTC One with service from Sprint or Verizon. For just $29.99 you can snag your own HTC One on November 29th and November 30th. For those customers that can’t wait or don't want to deal with Black Friday madness, the HTC One with Sprint or Verizon service will be priced at $49.99 starting November 25 through December 7.
It is seriously one of the best phones on the market and I prefer it to my husband's iPhone 5S for both the sound and the camera features. He is a bit jealous of the Zoe abilities in particular! So why wait to check it out!
