HTC Desire S

Last updated: Mar 9th, 2011.

HTC's line of Desire phones have been wildly successful. There was the original HTC Desire, then the Desire HD and Desire Z, and now the HTC Desire S will continue the tradition of excellence. There aren't any sweeping changes from the original Desire, but several updates move the Desire S in the right direction and it should prove to be another phone consumers love.

With a 3.7-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera, and 3.5mm headset jack, the HTC Desire S offers a solid multimedia device. It runs Android 2.4 with HTC Sense UI and does so rather smoothly. As we said, the HTC Desire S improves an already great phone.
