HTC One S Reviews
When I first saw the HTC One series, in that top secret subterranean bunker where HTC likes to preview its phones, my attention and desire were immediately drawn by the One S.
In some alternate universe, the One S would be HTC's flagship phone. There's the new, forged-for-space body, a uniform 7.8mm thickness and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display -- normally enough to qualify for the top slot.
Aaron takes a look at the global HTC One S, one of the three Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phones HTC announced at Mobile World Congress earlier in the year.
But equally alluring is the Xâ€™s smaller, sleeker sibling, the HTC One S -- a 7.8mm-thick, metal-framed device powered by a next-gen Snapdragon processor.
The 2012 hero phone strategy for HTC hits its thinnest point with the HTC One S, a device that brings the full power of the HTC One series made to compete with the best of the best.
The HTC One S may slot into the midrange in the companyâ€™s 2012 line-up, but HTC knows that it needs more than just average if it wants to reclaim its position in the smartphone segment.
A top of the range cameraphone with an emphasis on pictures, music and connectivity. Is the One S the One to have?
HTC One S is the middle child in the new One series of the Taiwanese smartphone maker, taking it down a notch from the flagship HTC One X
, while floating above the One V munchkin in terms of hardware.
The HTC One S sits behind the One X in HTC's new line-up of devices, looking to regain the Android top spot in 2012. Three devices, all featuring premium design aesthetics, comprise the One series, in what is pitched as a simpler approach from HTC.
The One S is second in command in the new HTC One line but for those who arenâ€™t in love with the idea of having a 4.7 inch monster in your pocket, the One S may be the top dog for you.
The HTC One S is the middle child of the One family but it just might be the brightest and best looking too. Inside the slender metal case is a treasure chest of new technology - the brains behind the beauty in this piece of smartphone alchemy.
Android And Me
"Early reviews of the international version of the HTC One S were favorable, but does T-Mobileâ€™s software tweaks and HSPA+Â networkÂ allow the One S to live up to its full potential?"
"Announced at the same time as the One X during MWC in February, the One S might come off on paper as being less of a phone, however, once you use it you will realize that it is a little beast of its own."
"Despite the fact that thereâ€™s no real wow factor here, it would be entirely unfair to say that HTCâ€™s One S isnâ€™t a great phone. It is."
