Summary: I was looking for asecond smart phone so I needed something not so expensive, old, but still strong enough to be useable. I just got the phone. I t appears to be solid and strong. It is still fast (as for January 2014), and honestly, I have been using the newest cyanogenmod for several months now with the newest rom, 4.4.2, and this appears to be faster. For me, it looks like as the android advance in versions, the phones become slower and slower.
Summary: With the beats audio, gorilla glass, and big screen, the HTC one s works great! Except for one major flaw, phone charge, if I keep mine in my pocket during school and don't use it once, it drops at least 70 percent in 6 hours.
Summary: The screen and camera are excellent - extremely clear/clean, high quality and resolution. There are plenty of features and apps available. the sound is excellent and I never have trouble with getting a signal, even in the rural area I live in. My previous 2 phones could not get a signal in my home, this phone has no trouble. good price The system makes many apps cumbersome to use. there are multiple screens to get through.
Summary: This was the dumbest thing i ever attempted. Custom Firmware was the term where i went wrong. Lost time and money to get a working cell phone has taught me a lesson. Walk in to a reputable retail store and touch, play, and see exactly how the phone will work for you. Pay a real live human being with a name, so you have a resource after the sale. I saved nothing. I still do not have a call making phone 4 1/2 weeks later. E bay is no way to buy hi-tech.
Summary: This is my second Android device, my first being Samsung I decided to try out a different brand after the Samsung got too old. First, appearance and styling. I'm sort of dissapointed I wasn't able to find a Ceramic Black at my time of purchase and had to make due with the normal blue color. The phone is light and thin, so thin I can put other things in my pocket and at times forget my phone is with me.
Summary: The Camera at the time of HTC one S release was the best on the market. Ease of going from video to camera to video without missing a beat. Zoom range great and adjustment awesome. White balance could be a little better but like I said best on market at time. Issue In flight mode HTC has bug and will not shut off. Must take out of flight mode and then shut off phone. Very Annoying on flights.
Summary: I found it a goods smart phone but there are certain issues . When battery goes down , let say cmpletely drained and then u pit it to charge ,, the front led alternatively blilnks and unblinks .. the screen says charging / Not charging making one feaf yhat as if phone is a faulty one . But after sometime it gets stable and starts to charge .. next, once it fell from my hands on a carpeted floor, just from 2feet height .. its rear speaker stoppec working ..
