HTC One S (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
19 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The HTC One S looks good, feels good, and runs Android 4.0 out of the box. It's our favorite new powerhouse smartphone on T-Mobile.
  • Pros: Beautiful, ultra-slim design. Vibrant screen. Runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box. Feels fast and responsive. HTC Sense 4.0 is redesigned, with especially slick camera software. Clear voice quality.
  • Cons: PenTile display makes for slightly fuzzy text. No voice dialing over Bluetooth.

HTC One S ( T-Mobile)

CNET
3 April 2012
  • Summary: The One S is the Goldilocks choice of HTC's new Ice Cream Sandwich-packing range -- neither too big nor too small, and with just the right amount of oomph under the hood allowing it to throw pixels around like a hyperactive clubber throws shapes.
  • Pros: Very fast and responsive; Ice Cream Sandwich; Latest HTC Sense is easy to use; Good 8-megapixel camera; Slender but sturdy form.
  • Cons: No microSD card slot.

HTC One S review

PC Advisor
9 May 2012
  • Summary: The HTC One S is an excellent mid-range smartphone option. It might not have the headline specifications of the One X but it outdoes it on performance and battery life. It does this in a more user friendly size, better build quality and a cheaper price tag.

IT PRO
25 April 2012
  • Summary: The One S is the best 4.3in Android device on the market when it comes to features, battery life and design. HTC Sense is simply the best pre-installed overlay available from a manufacturer.

  • Pros: Design, performance, battery life, Android 4 and Sense 4 work nicely
  • Cons: Display could be better, no microSD card slot

HTC One S in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
27 February 2012
  • Summary: The One S is pleasingly slender, but also tougher than a dozen Tom Hardys. We're confident that we could throw this phone across the room and it'd survive. As with the One X, the Ice Cream Sandwich interface topped with HTC Sense 4.0 is smooth and intuitive, and highly customisable.
  • Pros: Amazingly solid body, bright, vibrant screen, feature-packed camera
  • Cons: Screen lacks sharpness, limited storage and no expansion
