They both come in a variety of colours; Black Sapphire, White Pearl and Gold Platinum and all are encased in full metal and Gorilla glass. Both come with a stunning 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED screen and ‘real’ RGB colour, though of course the edge has *the edge* slightly here having the gorgeous curved edges to boot. The phones look and indeed are premium.
When it comes to selfies you might have thought you’d seen it all – from belfies to selfie sticks, and even selfie suitcases – but today the phenomenon went one step further, as the first ever Selfie Tour Bus hit the streets of Barcelona.
Today is the day that Spain (and New Zealand) are added to our Feel at Home arsenal. Meaning you can now use your phones there at no extra cost. And no, this isn’t an April fool. Rock up in Spain and use your phone there exactly as you do at home. No worries about roaming charges, just #holidayspam to your heart’s content.
And what do holiday spammers love to share most of all? Selfies of course!
HTC fans, rejoice! The HTC One M9 is here and available to buy today on Three. The M9 offers some nice brand-spanking-new features including Sense 7, which recognises where you are and displays the apps you use most in that location – no more Candy Crush at work!
With its 5” Full HD screen and two front-facing speakers, now with Dolby Audio surround sound, your phone has never looked or sounded so good. An impressive 20MP back camera means you’ll be capturing #holidayspam that will have your friends drooling with envy. Selfies more your thing? The M9 has you covered with its 4 UltraPixel selfie camera at the front.
Cast your minds back to the hazy, sunshine filled days of summer 2014 and you might remember that we launched an exciting new app called Three inTouch.
inTouch is a nifty little app that allows you to make calls and texts over Wifi. Perfect if you’re on the underground, or, in a nightclub, or, well, anywhere there is Wifi but no network connection. Pretty handy huh?
Three inTouch has been hugely popular since it was launched, we even released a new version last month which ironed out some of the little glitches you guys had told us about, like:
1. You’ll no longer have to turn off Wi-Fi to activate inTouch on Android
2. If you downloaded the app to your “Rooted Device” you’ll find that it now works*
3. You can now select not to receive SMS’s into the Three inTouch inbox and you’ll be able to get them sent directly in to your normal inbox when you’re in 3G or 4G coverage.
Today, however, we’re really excited to announce that Three inTouch has now been downloaded and activated by a WHOPPING 1 million customers! This is quite an achievement and naturally we’ve popped a few bottles of champagne at Three Towers today to celebrate. We’re even beating Spotify and Twitter in the app store charts!
Fancy hanging out in an igloo on top of a mountain and then checking out a live set from Rudimental?
That’s the kind of thing you can expect at Austria’s infamous Snowbombing festival in Mayrhofen, which we’re very excited to announce we’re sponsoring for the first time this year.
Austria is one of 16 countries you can use your phone abroad in at no extra cost with Three. This means that all you snow worshipers can tweet, Facebook and Instagram away, just like you would at home, but with no extra cost!
If you want the chance to go to this stunning, icy festival, we’ve got an exciting opportunity for any of you aspiring vloggers out there. We’re looking for a raving reporter, our man, or woman, on the ground at Snowbombing, to capture the buzz and excitement of the festival and explain how you’re using your phone in Austria without the hefty cost.
Why should you order your shiny new phone on Three? That’s an easy one. With us you get 4G at no extra cost AND you get to use your gorgeous new phone in 16 destinations around the world at no extra cost, with that British holiday fave; Spain, joining the ranks on April 1st.
To celebrate these two marvellous things we’re hosting a little Spanish themed competition over on Twitter.
Anyone following our Social Media over the last few days will know that we’ve been over in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2015. We’ve seen lots of exciting new phones and gadgets and heard from some amazing speakers.
But the highlight for us has to be that we’re now able to announce an exclusive network tariff partnership with Honor for their latest flagship phone; the Honor 6+. The 6+ is the first Honor device that we’ll range and we couldn’t be more excited. You guys will be able to buy one on a variety of contracts for the first time in the UK.
Vinnie Jones was so excited that he’ll soon be able to use his phone in Spain at no extra cost, that he thought he’d better get to grips with the local lingo and try and teach any imminent holidaymakers as well. And we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have a bit of fun….
To be in with a chance of winning the stunning LG G3, just watch the film of Vinnie trying out the old Española, pay attention though, you’ll need to tell us how many things beginning with ‘S’ you can spot in the film.
Once you think you know, simply tweet the answer with along with #HolaVinnie. A winner will be drawn from all correct answers. Clue: It’s more than 3 and less than 10!
