Scooting to Sydney with HTC One X on Instagram

The folks at HTC sent me their beautiful HTC One X (White) current flagship phone for review. As I was going for a trip to Sydney, Australia, sponsored by Destination New South Wales and Scoot airline last week, I brought the phone along to test.

Using the HTC One X on the trip brought back nostalgic memories of my trip to Sydney last year with the HTC EVO 3D. This time, I come with a better camera phone and also an Instagram account on Android.

Here are some of the images I took on my HTC One X on Instagram during the 4D3N trip:

Overall, I enjoy the super fast focus speed and quick shutter on the HTC One X. These ensure you never miss any fleeting photographic moments when you whip out your camera phone hastily.

Slim, sleek and elegant in design, the HTC One X was a delight to hold in hand. It slips easily in and out of trousers pockets stylishly and is so light that I kept checking my pockets initially to check if it was even there!

When I whipped out the phone to snap a picture of a merry bunch of Harley riders at Wollongong, they actually went “Ah….. a HTC!” in unison, giving their firm stamp of approval.

True Story! 🙂
