Excerpt: Under the hood the Incredible S has undergone a RAM upgrade, from 512MB up to 768MB, while the processor is the 1GHz Snapdragon chip so favoured by HTC. This brings it up to exactly the same chip spec as the new Desire S, and reveals the main weak spot of the phone – a 1 Ghz processor. It snaps and crackles along now, but will it still compare with the host of dual-core competitors such as the Motorola Atrix and Samsung Galaxy 2 in a few months time?
Pros: Screen, Orientation-correct buttons, Sense UI
Cons: Finger-mark susceptible rubber coating,, No dual core processo
Summary: The HTC Incredible S smart phone has an innovative appearance and tonnes of features. But, with a slightly dated version of Android and a single-core processor, the Incredible S feels merely credible compared to some of its mind-bending competition.
Cons: Slightly older version of Android misses out on some bug fixes and speed improvements.
Summary: The HTC Incredible S is a really good phone, and is one of those few devices we can call "well rounded". Very good performance meets a great display, and good construction meets a great keypad. The 4-inch display is a great compromise between bulkier 4.3-inch units and the smaller 3.7-inch ones.
Pros: Well built with a nice rugged, rubberised finish, Good performer across all tests, Good battery life, most welcome for an Android device, Is one of those few devices with no serious flaws
Cons: Slightly expensive. At Rs. 24K would be a really sweet deal, Contrast of the display could have been slightly better, ditto blackness levels, Microphone near mouthpiece picks up micro noise and transmits it to the earpiece, Not really a con, but this is a single core device so future proofing is "iffy" at the moment
Excerpt: HTC released the Droid Incredible exclusively in the U.S. for Verizon Wireless. At the 2011 Mobile World Congress, the successor, the Incredible S was unveiled. Unlike its predecessor, the Incredible S will be available globally. How well will the successor...
