  • 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 Desire S review: The Desire S is best described as an evolution of its predecessor, but does little to stand out amongst the crowd

Good Gear Guide.au
21 October 2011
  • Summary: The HTC Desire S is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary upgrade over the original Desire. It remains an excellent smartphone, but it hits the market at a time when competition is fiercer than ever. We think it's a good all-rounder at a competitive price, but the Desire S does little to stand out amongst the crowd.
  • Pros: Latest Android OS and slick Sense integration, Unibody aluminium design, Competitive price
  • Cons: Evolution rather than evolution, No real advanced features, We miss the physical buttons

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.
