DIY meets Technology with AT&T’s HTC One X {WIN ONE!}

Hello Homelovers! 

I have a fun giveaway for you guys today!  If you don’t own a smartphone or your interested in upgrading your old one you might want to look at this pretty little HTC ONE X by AT&T.
I don’t know about you but I’m always using my phone for decorating purposes. My real life friends would say that you can NEVER get ahold of me on my cellphone because it’s always off. I must admit that I’m not much of a chit chat cellphone talker. But when it comes to pulling something up, researching a décor issue or even finding inspiration, my phone is always by my side. I was browsing on my new HTC phone that the fine folks at AT&T sent for me to test drive and with the help of some of my favorite apps like Pinterest and Houzz, I was able to find some great ideas for these three little niches that have been sitting in misery for over a year now.

I want to add some character to them SO bad and I’ve had a few different visions for them. I love technology simply for the amount of ideas that are out there. Whether it’s on my laptop, tablet or phone being able to Google my questions at any moment is the coolest thing. I don’t know about you but I’m such a visual girl. I need to see something in order to create something. A lot of times I will stage spaces before I do the actual plan or even buy the actual pieces. With this gadget from AT&T I’m able to do a lot of décor planning.
Here’s the photo I love via Pinterest via Houzz via my HTC:0)

I adore the wood tops on the cutouts and I think it would work perfectly on mine! The wood tones and creamy whites paired together is always a great look:0) Now when I head to the hardware store I can pull up this photo and get all kinds of good advice from the experts!

So what’s so great about the New HTC One X!?

A couple of things. I love how big the screen is. It makes me feel like I have a mini tablet:0) But I think my number one feature on this phone is the camera. I mean it’s freaking amazing people! I had so much fun playing around with it! If your instagraming with me then you’ve seen some of the sweet shots I’ve taken….
The set up was easy. I was able to login online and set up all my screen apps, customize my phone and make it super easy to use for myself in about 30 minutes.

And the Google Play store has tons of apps for the décor addict like myself. Craigslist. Joann’s and Hobby Lobby are some of my favorites right now:0) Nothing like digital coupons!
Distortion (pretty cool), Country, Vignette, Depth of Field, Dots, Mono, are just a few of the effects and custom effects that the HTC ONE X boasts. You can do SOOO much with this camera without any apps! It’s fantastic people. I have had the older version of this same phone for about 2 years and the upgrades are very well thought out. It’s made for those who want to capture really good pictures everyday. In this day in age that’s really important for busy families like ours.

The not so great?

One of the best things about the phone is also one of the disadvantages. The screen is big, but if you have small hands like me, then you might find it a little harder to hold and text with one hand. I never text with two hands so my hands sometime cramp when I’m holding it for long periods of times.
The camera takes really great photos, we know that. But I wish it was easier to share on blogger. As of now I need to share by emailing the photo to myself, then save the image to my computer, then upload it to Windows Writer. How lovely would it be if I could automatically upload all my favorites onto a blog post. Maybe there is and I just haven’t figured it out?:0)
So are you ready to…
