HTC One M8 Harman/Kardon Edition + Onyx Studio Speaker Review #SprintMom

“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.”

I am beyond excited to remind you that I am a Sprint Ambassador for 2014.  I still feel faint when I think about  how awesome that is because I get to test out various Sprint devices and service options over the course of this year.  I kicked off my #SprintMom Ambassadorship with a super amazing giveaway of a HTC One max smartphone.  Congrats to the winner! I was recently sent the HTC One M8 Harman/Kardon Edition smartphone to try out in my home.  My husband immediately took it from me and it is his now.  I steal it back while he is at work and it is awesome. With revolutionary technology that restores all types of compressed digital music and provides a more life-like headphone listening experience, the beautifully crafted all-metal HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition with superior design inside and out provides you with a music experience unlike any other.

I am blown away by the sound quality of the  HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition. I use my phone for music all the time especially when I am trying to write posts.  I have ADHD so I need no distractions.  The awesome headphones that come with this phone are amazing. I can barely hear any outside noise when using them and they are soft on my ears. The speakers are on the front of the phone which is great to me because I am always laying mine down. It comes with access to Spotify’s catalogue of more than 20 million songs so I am fully spoiled now using it. It has my eclectic taste in music down with a crisp sound that even my picky husband loved. Spotify is a great way to have a huge library of music at your fingertips even if your tastes run all over the board like me. As part of their new Sprint Sound Sessions, Sprint is offering a really cool deal on Spotify for all new and existing Framily Plan members where you get six months of service free! After that, Framily Plan members get a discounted rate of either $7.99 or $4.99, depending on how many users are on your plan.

Here are some of the awesome features of this phone that stood out to me:

  • 5-inch Full HD screen
  • Duo Camera with instant capture
  • 32 GB Rom/2GB RAM
  • HD™ Voice
  • Sprint Live
  • Spotify Premium and much more!

The Duo Camera is definitely my favorite after the awesome sound quality.  It even has a selfie button where it counts down for you to get yourself ready. The front camera has a 5 megapixel camera which is perfect for all the sleeping baby on my chest selfies that I take a day. The colors are amazing. Speaking of color though, the back cam takes some super awesome pictures in low light.  My house is surrounded by trees so we rarely have good light around here.


I was also sent a really cool speaker with my phone.  I can honestly say that my speaker is so awesome you can almost see the sound waves when we turn it up.  The Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio is super sleek and stylish and it looks really good on my kitchen table.  It is the perfect counterpart to my new phone because it lets me keep the great sound quality and share it with the whole house.  I cannot wait to have a party and show this bad boy off . It has 4 powered speakers and dual passive radiators for extraordinary acoustics.

For a limited time, customers can purchase the new HTC One M8 Harman/Kardon Edition for $0 down on the Sprint Framily plan and add the Onyx Studio Speaker for just $99.99 – a $300 instant savings!
