Conclusion: The Desire S is another feather in the cap for HTC. A really nice looking device that's easy to use and works like a charm. The Desire S will please most looking for a high-end smartphone, but those after a bit more internal storage might want to look elsewhere. Those thirsting for some bleeding-edge Android gaming should also wait and see how the dual-core Android phones of 2011 shape up.
Summary: We were initially rudely dismissive of the HTC Desire S when it was revealed at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, with it appearing to offer little in the way of improvement over the superb HTC Desire. And that is indeed the case – only everything in here, camera aside, is a little bit slicker and a little bit better. As a result, The HTC Desire S is an undeniably fantastic phone. Using it is a joy, quite frankly.
