The One Where Jermaine Paul Sings to Me and I get an HTC One Harman Kardon Smartphone

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint Sound Session. I received a sample of the HTC One to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. It was the highlight of my month and I freaking love that phone!


If I ever complain about how “hard” being a blogger is (and there are moments), just remind me of my experience at the Sprint Sound Session at The Lamb’s Club in New York City last week.

A group of selected bloggers — frankly, I’m not sure how I got into that group – had the opportunity to experience the HTC One® M8 Harman Kardon® Edition Smartphone – A Sprint exclusive smartphone built with a premium sound experience.

Today, Sprint continues to set new mobile music standards with its new national entertainment platform, Sprint Sound Sessions, a premium music package for Sprint customers. Sprint Sound Sessions will offer exclusive access to certain content, such as advance new releases.

The phone also comes with 3 months of Spotify Premium (LOVE),  Sprint Music Live, and Next Radio ( a free FM radio app). If you love music as much as I do, the HTC One Harman Kardon Smartphone is IT.   

Key Features:

  • HD Voice – Experience crystal clear call quality with reduced background noise while calling another Sprint HD Voice-enabled phone on the Sprint network.
  • Spotify Premium – Just hit play, and the right music is always there for you, wherever you are. Stream anything you like, or go offline and listen to your saved music.
  • Sprint Zone™ -Your one-stop source to access your wireless account, phone tips, news, a list of top apps and more. Access Sprint TV, GPS Navigation, NBA Game Time, NASCAR Mobile ’13 and Sprint Music Plus.
  • FM Radio (NextRadio) – Enjoy free access to your favorite artists, songs and station with NextRadio, the intelligent radio app for your smartphone. Tag your favorite music, share them with your friends and view song details like album art, song , artist, and album title.
  • LiveStage – A HARMAN technology that provides a more lifelike headphone listening experience. It’s like being at the show without actually being there.

Plus, the phone  comes with premium earbuds, TWO speakers on the phone, and HD sound – the only smartphone on the market to have that feature.

The group of bloggers I was with learned about and experienced these fabulous features while enjoying our swanky lunch of upscale burgers.


And then, Jermaine Paul sang.  Yeah, THAT Jermaine Paul, winner of Season 2 of The Voice.  He sang, and I forgot everything else. Including my own name. Isn’t he beautiful?? Because that’s all I need, really. A man, and his guitar. Singing to me.

His new single, “Next to You,” is fabulous by the way.

I was literally 2 feet in front of him. Pretty much the highlight of my month.

When I walked up for my photo opp, he said, “I saw you jammin’ out in the front row!”  HELLZ yes.

Meeting Jermaine Paul, and learning how the HTC One M8 Harmon/Kardon smartphone can give me nearly unlimited access to the music I love with crystal-clear sound was a life-changing experience.

To be honest, I had some anxiety about giving up my iPhone. After I opened up my HTC One Harmon/Kardon phone, there was no looking back.  There is nothing else on the market right now that compares with the  premium sound experience the Sprint HTC One Harmon/Kardon offers.  If you’re thinking about a new phone, I say go for it!
