HTC One S for T-Mobile review

 

A couple weeks ago we got to have our Ice Cream Sandwich and eat it too, thanks to a gorgeous couple phones from HTC -- the One X and the One S. Both run

Beautiful design ; Fantastic camera ; Good battery life ; Impressive performance ; Sense 4 is unobtrusive

Display is a little underwhelming

Don't mess with a good thing -- that's clearly, wisely and rightfully the approach T-Mobile chose to follow when minting its own version of HTC's One S.

HTC One S review: Onederful

 

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.

Stunningly thin at 7.8mm, ceramic or anodized aluminum finish ; Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive Super AMOLED touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels); Gorilla glass ; Android OS v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with...

Pentile display ; Non-expandable memory, just a single internal storage option ; No dedicated camera key ; microSIM only ; Battery not user replaceable ; Camera interface makes framing videos pretty hard ; Incapable of 3G video calls without a 3rd...

The HTC One S is one of the most impressive mobile phones we've handled recently - both in terms of hardware and software.

HTC One S review

 

More InfoHTC One S hands-on at MWC 2012 (video)HTC Sense 4 reviewHTC One X reviewIn some alternate universe, the One S would be HTC's

Solid performance ; HTC Sense on Ice Cream Sandwich is slick ; Stylish design ; Capable, accessible camera ; Good battery life

Screen is already outclassed

The One S could be HTC's flagship: it's far ahead of its rivals performance-wise and looks great. However the screen is slightly lacking, particularly compared to its bigger brother's.

HTC One S - gradient blue (T-Mobile)

The ; manages to pack Android ICS, Sense 4, and a feature-filled camera into one of the slimmest phones on the market.

The One S' svelteness comes at the cost of no SD card expansion slot or removable battery.

The HTC One S is the best phone you can get on T-Mobile (for now), wrapping Android 4.0, 4G data speeds, and a beautiful 4.3-inch AMOLED screen into one svelte package.

HTC One S (T-Mobile)

 

The HTC One S looks good, feels good, and runs Android 4.0 out of the box. It's our favorite new powerhouse smartphone on T-Mobile.

Beautiful, ultra-slim design. Vibrant screen. Runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box. Feels fast and responsive. HTC Sense 4.0 is redesigned, with especially slick camera software. Clear voice quality

PenTile display makes for slightly fuzzy text. No voice dialing over Bluetooth

HTC has finally launched its first Android smartphone to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich—and it's a winner. The HTC One S packs a next-generation dual-core processor, a vibrant screen, an unusually capable camera, and fast HSPA+ 42 data speeds, all into...

HTC One S - gradient blue (T-Mobile) review

 

T-Moble customers we feel your pain. First it was the threat of a hostile takeover by AT&T, then it was the lack of any attractive smartphones while competitors Verizon and AT&T launched superphone after superphone such as the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx...

HTC One S Review: Ultramodern Design, Awesome Camera

 

The global version of the HTC One S ($200 with a new two-year contract from T-Mobile; price as of April 18, 2012) impressed me at Mobile World Congress back in February, so I was anxious to see if the T-Mobile version was equally awesome. Spoiler...

High-end camera with lots of shooting modes ; Thin, premium design ; Excellent for gaming and multimedia

No microSD slot ; Mediocre call quality

The HTC One S is the ultimate multimedia phone, from gaming to music to snapping high quality photos.

Review: HTC One S

 

The HTC One S is a sleek, speedy and attractive handset that runs Ice Cream Sandwich. But there are a few design stumbles here that...

Super thin and light with an attractive unique style. No problems with call quality or battery life. Premium materials add an upscale feel and 4G speeds are fast, when you can get a 4G signal. Photo software is top-notch. 25GB of free storage from...

Protruding camera lens is begging for scuffs and scratches. Display is pixelated, not high definition. Beats Audio doesn’t make anything sound better, just louder. And while it has Beats Audio technology, it doesn’t come with Beats earbuds

HTC One S review

 

Note: Our original review was of the unlocked, GSM One S. We've updated the review with impressions and tests of the $199 (with contract) T-Mobile model as well. Check out the Hardware, Connectivity and Software sections to see the biggest differences...

Sumptuous design ; Sets new performance benchmark ; ImageSense camera software is a boon ; Exceedingly thin

Pentile AMOLED display is no match for a good LCD ; Sense 4 holds ICS back ; Beats Audio is a gimmick ; Silver model isn't treated with microarc oxidation

HTC steps into the Ice Cream Sandwich limelight with its new One series

HTC One S Review - International and T-Mobile

 

At the very top of HTC's new lineup are three flagship devices: the One X, its cousin the One XL, and the One S. I say flagship because HTC's One S is really a device with a level of fit and finish beyond the rest of the high-end to midrange device...
