Review: HTC Desire S

Technoodling
20 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Back in February 2010, HTC graced the world with what was to become the standard as to how a high-end Android smartphone should be. The HTC Desire garnered numerous “gadget of the year” awards and set the benchmark for other manufacturers to follow.
  • Pros: Sleek hardware design, Improved performance and battery life, Good price point
  • Cons: Camera functions, while improved, still leaves a lot to be desired, Feels like the Desire S is just a stop-gap product for the next generation of dual-core handsets

HTC Desire S review: Droid cravings

GSM Arena
18 April 2011
  • Conclusion: When we first made its acquaintance, the HTC Desire S was on display at this year’s MWC in Barcelona along with the Incredible S and the Wildfire S. Each phone in this trio is no more perhaps than a transitional model, a facelift that doesn’t even warrant their own name.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels), Uses the best screen from HTC so far (along with the Incredible S), Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno ...
  • Cons: No dedicated camera key and no lens cover, Below-par sunlight legibility, Wi-Fi signal degrades when you cover the top part of the back panel, microSD is below the battery cover

  • Conclusion: If you already have the HTC Desire I don’t think it’s worth the upgrade to the Desire S, the difference isn’t big enough and you may miss the physical buttons below the screen. If however you are coming from a completely different device then I’m sure that the Desire S wont disappoint.

1 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Wrapping up, reviewing the HTC Desire S has been a pleasure. The phone is a testament to good evolution being better than bad revolution. With the physical tweaks, the unibody construction, the improved HTC Sense and Gingerbread being on board, the sheer smoothness of the user experience makes it...
  • Pros: Small and robust unibody construction, HTC Sense 2.1 offers tangible improvements, Bright responsive screen with good contrast / color levels
  • Cons: No camera button or HDMI connectivity, Camera takes muddy indoor / low light photos, Single-core processor may put some people off

HTC Desire S Review

SlashGear
28 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Back when we reviewed the HTC Desire, almost twelve months to the day , the smartphone was at the cutting edge of Android devices. Tagging on the coat-tails of the Nexus One, it closely followed Google's example of a sizable screen, fast processor and up-to-date software, shaping up as a solid...

HTC Desire S Review

Know Your Mobile
28 November 2014
  • Summary: The Desire S just doesn’t feel like the ‘big deal’ it should be. It looks passé, has passé specs and doesn’t really stand out from the crowd whatsoever. In fact, compared to the likes of the Motorola Atrix and Samsung Galaxy S II it looks practically moribund.
  • Pros: Android 2.3, latest edition of Sense UI, improved CPU and GPU, front-facing camera
  • Cons: No 1080p video, no dual core processor, no HDMI, 5-megapixel camera, unimpressive display, too similar to original HTC Desire
