HTC One S

 

Fast and stylish, the One S should be a winner. But a few slipups dent its appeal.

Beautiful slim but strong design, Dazzling and colourful screen, Incredibly fast processor, Feature packed camera

Matt black finish doesn't wear damage well, Screen has iffy viewing angles and isn't as sharp as the best, HTC image quality still isn't brilliant

Don't fancy the HTC One X's monster 4.8in screen? Find out how its smaller sibling fares

The One S is ideal for those who can’t stretch their hands (or wallets) around the One X

HTC One S

 

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....

Design, performance, battery life, Android 4 and Sense 4 work nicely

Display could be better, no microSD card slot

Like the HTC One X, the One S exhibits sensational design. It's a great handset both in terms of how it looks and how it performs. It might technically not be the company's flagship device, but aside from the screen, you'd never know that. As such, if...

Hands-on: HTC One S review - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC One S might not be the flagship in the new HTC One range, but that doesn't mean it's something that should be overlooked. Just announced, we had

HTC One S review

 

A top of the range cameraphone with an emphasis on pictures, music and connectivity. Is the One S the One to have?

Slim, svelte and beautiful ; Built for Ice Cream Sandwich ; Loads of widgets ; Excellent battery life

Limited memory, no SD slot ; MicroSIM is a pain for some ; Keyboard has seen better days ; Call quality can be slightly tinny

Update: We've spent a long time with the HTC One S now, so have updated our review to represent the improved software and all round experience. Don't worry... it's still brilliant!

HTC One S review

 

A slim and light handset with an excellent camera, a fast chip and Android 4.0, but HTC's software can be annoying, there's no memory card slot and the faster One X doesn't cost much more

HTC One S review

 

The HTC One S is the ultimate multimedia phone for Android, from gaming to music to snapping high-quality photos. Read our HTC One S review to find out more.

The HTC One S is one of the top Android phones. The HTC One X has a bigger, higher-resolution display and LTE connectivity (not much use in the UK for now). Hopefully the call quality issues I experienced with my test HTC One S are an isolated...

European Social Media Phone 2012-2013

 

This smartphone has a body shell moulded from a single piece of aluminium, treated using ‘micro arc oxidation' for a black finish that is smooth to the touch. This process, in which the metal is hit with 10,000 volts, also this makes the 7.87mm device...

HTC is reinventing the smartphone with the One series, and the HTC One S is a nicely proportioned, well specified handset with plenty going for it. We’d have liked the S to have been a touch cheaper to put a little more space between it and the One X,...
