One Size Does NOT Fit All #MeetYours

windows phone 8

One Size Fits All. Really? What crazy person ever thought that one size would fit “all”? I’m not just talking about clothing, but everything from cars to technology. I want items that reflect my unique personality, not a cookie cutter product made for everyone.

As a gadget geek, new smartphones, are one of my favorite toys. I kind of stalk the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) online, so I know all about the newest technology and I can plan my next purchase.

Last week as a member of the Team Windows Phone, I received the new HTC 8X, and from the snazzy packaging, I knew this phone was different. From the outside in (available colors blue, black, red, and neon yellow), this phone can be customized to each individual! Someone must know my favorite color is blue, because without any input, they sent me a blue one!

I’d seen the commercials for the Windows 8 phone on television, but as a football fanatic and Auburn alum, I admit all my attention was on Cam Newton. Besides, I’ve owned an Android based phone for what feels like forever, and saw no reason to consider switching to a different operating system. For that reason, I knew little to nothing about the Windows 8 phone.

If I’d actually paid attention to the ads, I would have known one of the coolest features of my new phone is the ability to customize my home screen. More than just changing the wallpaper, I can choose the colors and the apps that I prefer and pin them to the start screen. Customizing my phone is fun, and I’ve spent hours pinning apps and changing up the look. (maybe that’s why the laundry has piled up, HA!)

I love keeping my most frequently used and favorite apps on the home screen. The photo above is my current start screen (two pictures because you have to scroll to see the whole thing), I can pin and un-pin whenever I’m in the mood for change. I’m able to see the latest offer from Groupon, check my bids on eBay, check in on Foursquare, play games, and see what’s happening with my friends. Live tiles show me changes in weather, facebook status uploads, and updates and more!
