HTC Incredible S review: Smart and curvy

 

The unfortunate naming aside (seriously, didn't anyone say it out loud before they announced it?), the Incredible S is a pretty great smartphone. You've got spotless connectivity, an exciting new screen, those cool rotating buttons and the proven power...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; The best screen on an HTC device by some distance ; Android OS v2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense UI...

No dedicated camera key and no lens cover ; Runs Froyo on launch, instead of Gingerbread ; Poor video recording, 720p footage is pretty jerky ; Uninspiring audio quality

HTC Incredible S review

 

The Incredible S is a beguiling little beast. Looking at its name, familiar rump, and mostly run of the Android mill specs, you'd think it little more

Super LCD is super ; UI is responsive, polished to a sheen ; Excellent ergonomics

Some browser and video rendering issues ; Doesn't have Gingerbread yet ; No HDMI output

HTC Incredible S (unlocked) review

 

One of our favorite smartphones from 2010 was the HTC Droid Incredible . The smartphone's zippy performance and polished user experience helped earn itself an Editors' Choice Award. Obviously, its day has come and gone, but it's not the end of the...

The HTC Incredible S features a crisp 4-inch, Super LCD multitouch screen. The HTC Sense UI provides a slick user experience and generally snappy performance.

The Incredible S runs the older Android 2.2 OS. Call quality and camera quality could be better.

The HTC Incredible S might not impress the tech enthusiast crowd, but it works as a midtier Android smartphone, offering some nice improvements over its predecessor.

HTC Incredible S Review

 

The first of HTC's new range from Mobile World Congress last month, and tracing a direct line back to a handset almost 12 months old, the HTC Incredible S should on paper leave us cold. Packing neither the huge screen of the Touch HD , nor running the...

As we said at the start, it’s easy to discount the Incredible S from specs on a screen. A single-core processor, superseded version of Android and twiner display size all fall short on paper. In reality, though, the Incredible S manages to occupy a...

HTC Incredible S Reviewed

 

The Droid Incredible was a powerful smartphone from HTC that ended up being very popular. It was limited in its release, being available in the U.S. through Verizon Wireless. At the 2011 Mobile World Congress, the HTC Incredible S was unveiled to the...

Overall the HTC Incredible S ranks in as a solid "Average" smartphone. It's a bit of a let down considering how well rounded and well received the original Droid Incredible was. When placed side by side with the original, the Incredible S doesn't have...

HTC Incredible S Mobile Phone Review

 

The rotating capacitive buttons certainly add to the cool factor.

The rotating capacitive buttons are awesome, nice camera

Older Android version, call quality not as good, slightly expensive

The Incredible S has the same CPU/GPU configuration as the Desire S- the 1GHz SnapDragon CPU with the Adreno 205 GPU which is also the same combo used in Xperia Play. Our review sample did not have an SD card for storage but expect a 4GB card to be...

HTC Incredible S

 

HTC has revealed to be the Incredible S, a new 4-inch that succeeds the original Incredible. The smartphone comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8225 with a 768MB RAM, a 720p HD video capable 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and autofocus, a 1.3...

Nice, big screen; applications launch and run smoothly; decent camera; loud speakers

Pricey; runs on older Android OS; camera doesn't perform as well in low-light conditions

Overall, the HTC Incredible S is a sleek handset that feels and performs like a premium Android smartphone.Although it doesn't run on the latest version of Android, we encountered no noticeable performance issues with the device.
