Expert Review

  • Conclusion: About the only area where the hardware suffers from a downgrade is the screen. The original Desire came equipped with an AMOLED screen which was later changed to Super TFT by HTC and that is what you get on the Desire S as well. It’s not a bad screen by any measure but not as readable as an AMOLED screen in direct sunlight, which is something we have plenty of in the UAE.

HTC Desire S Review

Phone Arena
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 hard not to fall in love all over again.
  • 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 Meets Most Desires : HTC Desire S

GadgetSpeak
1 October 2011
  • Summary: The Desire S is a recent addition to the range of Android phones from HTC and, as a result, has benefitted from the company’s experience. It is of a nice size and feels right in the hand and, having a fast enough processor and 1G of memory will meet the needs of the great majority of smart phone users. With built-in GPS, FM radio and torch it is also aimed at being the Swiss Army knife of smart phones.

  • Excerpt: With its aluminium unibody, the Desire S feels smooth in the hand, while it gets a retro feel from its rounded edges and matt rubber embellishments Improved performance thanks to Android Gingerbread, as well as more responsiveness from the touch screen and a speedier virtual keyboard. We also like the HTC Sense interface What you'd expect from a smartphone - snapper, sat-nav, and social networking, email and web on a par with the desktop experience - but there are bigger...
  • Cons: : Occasional lags in receipt of email and texts, features may seem dated by the end of the year

HTC Desire S review

Pocket Lint
30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: The HTC Desire was the phone of 2010. It got in early, was considerably better than the competition and by the end of the year was still very much holding its own against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S and the Apple iPhone 4 . Fast forward a year and the marketplace and the choice offered to consumers is very different. The Desire now has plenty of competition, from within HTC and other manufacturers.
  • Pros: Great looking design, HTC Sense covers just about all bases, Android 2.3 is bang up to date, ultra connected experience out of the box
  • Cons: It feels a little samey and doesn't really advance the HTC story, and is outclassed by its older and bigger brother the Desire HD, finish started rubbing off on contact points, not the most striking screen around these days
