HTC One S Review: In Depth

Recombu
8 August 2012
  • Conclusion: All in all, HTC have thrown a spanner in the works with their One S. Despite not even being a flagship handset, it's our favourite phone of the moment. Build, interface and features are balanced incredibly well. Its design and power-management are class leading and while we would have rather it had an LCD 2 display like the One X, the AMOLED panel is still perfectly respectable and complements the black chassis beautifully.
  • Pros: Fantastic build quality, Superb battery life, Solid low-light performance
  • Cons: Screen suffers from slight dot patterning, Macro focus can be difficult to set, White variant lacks ceramic finish

HTC One S review

IT PRO

  • Excerpt: This 4.3in Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and lightweight chassis, but it's the all-day battery life which is the outstanding feature.

HTC One S

Pocket Lint
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Like the HTC One X, the One S exhibits sensational design. It's a great handset both in terms of how it looks and how it performs. It might technically not be the company's flagship device, but aside from the screen, you'd never know that. As such, if you're pondering whether to buy the One X or the One S, then the choice seems clear: get the one you feel most comfortable holding.
  • Pros: Design, performance, battery life, Android 4 and Sense 4 work nicely
  • Cons: Display could be better, no microSD card slot

HTC One S

19 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Samsung heeft met de S III een waardige opvolger voor hun verkoopkanon, de S II. De bouwkwaliteit is uitstekend, de snelheid is ongeëvenaard en ook het scherm is prima. Toch is de marktsituatie anders dan destijds bij de S II. HTC’s Sensation moest toen ruimschoots zijn meerdere erkennen in Samsung’s topmodel, met de One X hebben de Taiwanezen echter nu een geduchte concurrent in handen.
  • Pros: Razendsnel, Goede bouwkwaliteit, Prima camera, Sd-kaart-slot
  • Cons: Groot formaat, Hoog plasticgehalte, Niet het beste scherm
