As a Sprint Ambassador, I have the opportunity to check out the latest and greatest in technology. I’m so very excited to introduce to you the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition smartphone and the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio bluetooth speaker. If you like music like I do, you will absolutely flip for both these devices!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.
The HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition is designed for the music lover with a revolutionary technology that restores all types of compressed digital music for music, delivering crystal clear sound. I have been listening via Spotify to all the latest hits and discovering new bands because I seem to always have it on now! I either listen to it with the built-in speakers or with my headphones while hiking, mowing grass, or making dinner. You wouldn’t believe the sound was coming from a smartphone, it is actually better than any outdoor speaker system we’ve owned – it’s that good!
I didn’t think the music with my HTC One could get any better until I was introduced to the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio bluetooth speaker. Now, the whole family can enjoy music inside and outside wirelessly via any Bluetooth® devices – I use my HTC One. Just listen to the sound for yourself.
The music just fills the backyard while we are relaxing or doing yard work. The sound is clear and vibrant because of the 4 powered speakers and dual passive radiators in the speaker. I can control the sound via the speaker or my HTC One smartphone too.
Plus, the speaker is gorgeous, making it perfect for both indoors and outdoors. I don’t have access to music in my kitchen unless it is blaring in our family room. I’ve been using my HTC One with the Onyx Studio speaker whenever I’m cooking or cleaning up the kitchen now. It actually has better sound than our receiver!
It looks great on my counter and makes my time in the kitchen more enjoyable too. Plus with Spotify, I have access to over 20 million songs – there is so much to discover! 🙂
Let’s talk more about the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition smartphone.
Not only does it deliver amazing sound but it is packed with features that I am still discovering! First off, the 5 inch Full HD screen is beautiful, it makes everything so easy to navigate and work with. It is so easy to check email and connect socially. I also find myself always watching youtube videos more often with my kids now, including the Let it Go video from Frozen more times than I can count with my daughter!
The design of the phone fits perfectly in my hand and it is so light weight, making it perfect to take along everywhere – and I do from Cedar Point to hiking in the woods to the waterpark to running errands around town.
The camera is 5MP with the largest pixel size in the industry that offers an increase image quality with 300% more light captured. Even in the low light conditions in this dense wooded area, we were able to get a great shot of us with the largest tree in Portage County!
It also offers both front and UltraPixels rear facing, so I even take selfies and post with the scene I’m looking at. We were hiking in the woods last week and came across trees by the lake that beavers were cutting down. Here is the image with me looking at it! So fun!
You can even get fancy with the Duo Camera with instant capture feature. In this, you can add a high-quality DSLR effect to your pictures with the second lens. It can take an ordinary picture or a ‘pro look’ with the depth-of-field control with background focus fall-off by alternating the focal point.
You can even add effects to your photos, including color temperature.
Is there anything this phone can’t do? I’m still browsing all the possibilities but I really like how intuitive the design is and how easy it is to navigate my favorite apps too with the side slide.
Plus, all the latest social shares in my network are updated on my home screen to easily view and respond.
If you are in the market for a new smartphone that has excellent music abilities and more check out the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition.
