Summary: I bought two HTC ONE S phones in November of 2013. After 1 year, one of the phones still works okay, but the other phone's power button failed. This is a common occurrence with these phones, and it would appear, HTC phones in general nowadays. It's a shame because I have been a fan of HTC since 2004 or so. Not much recourse for repair of the phone with the seller. Probably not worth sending it out unless I get rid of it entirely.
Summary: I use this phone for one purpose and that's listening to music. It's built in Beats Audio makes it the best music phone I've ever encountered. Battery life is terrible though. Camera is a quick 8mp which was well before it's time for phones. Great design as well.
I need help, do not know how to communicate the following.

Summary: This is how I got to communicate and be able to describe my current problem, I hope you can help me with the answer. This week, on June 27, my HTC One S recently bought (Order #: 107-5401262-5581804, Order Date: January 11, 2014 and like new) introduced battery failure. I think it is too recent to have had than to change. My husband and son have similar and theirs have 1 year and 7 months and have not had battery problems yet.
used sensations for two years, one s lasted me less than two months...

Summary: The Good: (1) Sleek and classy design (2) HTC Sense is very user friendly (3) Fast and snappy performance --- The Bad: (1) "Beats Audio" Rip off. (2) Very low speaker volume & quality. (3) Poor screen quality, mediocre at best (4) Poor battery life (5) No external storage / micro sd --- A word of advice: You have to be careful when buying this phone, there are three different models with the same name "HTC One S" with three major differences, (1) hardware (2) basebands...
Excerpt: Used different HTC phones but with what i have HTC ONE S/Villec2 is very disappointing due to the fact that my version cannot be updated to Jellybean 4.2 and Sense5 but the other version has the update. So if you are planing to buy htc one s do no choose Villec2 version.
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.
