I am so excited to announce that I will be a Verizon Wireless Ambassador for a second time! For the last few months, I have been testing out the Samsung Galaxy SIII and I am in love. After the program, I opted to keep the phone because I just could not part with it. For this cycle, I will be getting to know the HTC Windows Phone 8X.
To be honest, this is going to be a hard sell because before the Galaxy SIII, I had a Windows phone and we had a love/hate relationship. But, I do like the features that the Windows 8 platform offers so I am curious to see if this upgrade will convince me to replace my Galaxy.
My Windows Phone 8X arrived just last week and I thought I would share with you my first impressions:
1. This phone is pretty. And blue. You can all ooooh and ahhhh with me here.
2. It is lightweight (130 grams with battery) and very thin (did I mention it is pretty?). The buttons are flush with the body adding to a sleek design, but for me it is making the buttons a bit difficult to operate them.
3. The screen resolution is nice (HD 720 p)and the colors are vivid. I like being able to customize my screen by “pinning” my favorite apps or widgets to the homescreen. You can even re-size and move the apps to adjust the screen to your liking for a truly personal experience.
The Verizon Ambassadors were treated to a webinar earlier this week to teach us all of the tips and tricks of our new Windows Phone 8X. In the coming months, I will share with you all that I have learned and my experiences.
So, what apps should I download?
