The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

HTC One S appears on T-Mobile, Best Buy’s website; Hints toward $200 on-contract price.

  1. Its a non deal if it is not the One X! T-mobile needs to learn!

  2. So for the same price and no painful mail in rebate process, you can get the one x on AT&T and get an hd display

    1. And probably nearly double the monthly bill.

      Also, get the phone at a Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile. Voila, no mail in rebate.

      People keep complaining about the rebate, just go somewhere where you dont have to do the rebate. Problem solved.

  3. The One S is a great phone. But it shouldnt cost the same as the One X. even if T-mobile cant subsidize the same as AT&T can.

    Actually, it costs more since its 250 before the mail in rebate.

  4. I LOVE HTC! The Desire was my very first HTC phone. I know have the Sensation. I really want this phone! I have T-Mobile and can’t wait to upgrade. I have seen so many people complain how HTC phones are all alike, nothing changes. I really enjoy the weather and time clock, its one of the things that caught my eye and intrigued me with my very first HTC purchase. I had other phones and constantly tried new launchers with no real sense of joy with the themes. I don’t have to change a thing with my HTC phones, very happy with the look and feel of them. Tried and true, an extremely satisfied customer! :-) Can’t wait to get this!

    1. I like HTC as well, and also purchased the Sensation based on my previous experience with them.. The Sensation is a nice phone as well.. “but” I have two issue with it.. The first is, that although it is a nice screen indoors, it is horrible for outdoor use,, The second is the volume rocker button that disappeared.. (am not alone), leaving me stuck on vibrate.. haven’t had time to get it fixed.. I would still consider this phone, but I would have to see it outdoors first.. The ability to take photos with a nicer camera is great, but it sure is a better experience if you can see what your taking a picture of on the screen.. my old mytouch (I’ll be hip and say “OG”) was better outdoors than the Sensation.

      1.  like Beverly replied I am taken by surprise that a single mom able to profit $4731 in 1 month on the internet. have you read this web link>>> http://realjobseeker.blogspot.in/

  5. Why the bell would anyone want this over the One X for relatively the same price? T Mobile needs to pull its head out of its rear.

  6. this phone sucks not much of an upgrade form my sensation
    one x with expandablle memory or im goin to evoooo

    1. It has a processor that’s been blowing up benchmarks (same as one x), 1080p recording, beats audio, a bigger battery than your sensation, sense 4.0, and a camera that’s being described as one of the the best phone camera’s out there. Yeah this phone sucks alright…..

      1. There’s someone who knows what their talking about. Hats off to you, sir.

      2. LOL :)

  7. One-X, T-mobile.

  8. T-Mobile is much cheaper than AT&T and Verizon.. I miss having T-Mobile but their coverage isn’t as extensive as Verizon in my experience.
    Point being, you wont be saving any money by getting the One X on AT&T over the One S on T-mobile.

  9. You’re all retarded compairing.this to at&t deal. Double the monthle cost like someone pointed out PLUS that OneX is got the same S4? Same processor with true HD?? AGGGGgggg. Way slower. Way more output.needed. and they’re both 199.99 stupppppidd

  10. Johnny989 has it dead on. Look at the reviews, the comments on reviews. Most actually favor the One S over the One X. It beat it on most bench mark tests as well. And that was against the real One X not the sorta One X At&t is getting.

  11. is TMO getting the one X ?

  12. Yankeesrule 587, the most recent “rumor” is that the One X will hit T-Mobile but as a rebrand/rename.

    1. yes most likely as the G24 or a myTouch of some sorts. 

  13. Most, if not all, reviews I’ve read by the pros are very positive of the One S. But in here folks are complaining. What gives? Is the grass always greener at AT&T? I welcome this phone and I think HTC is a very creative and reliable company.
