Technoodling
3 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The HTC 8S is currently HTC’s lowest priced Windows Phone 8 entry, and yet it sells for about 3 thousand pesos more than the Nokia Lumia 620. Is the higher price justified? Can this make you forget about similarly-priced but better spec’d Android phones? Let’s find out.

Review HTC Windows Phone 8S Smartphone

Notebookcheck
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Entry-level Windows. A dual-core processor, 512 MB RAM and a 4-inch screen for 260 Euros (~$346). In cooperation with HTC Microsoft tries to pull smartphone users away from the Android and iOS camp. But is Windows Phone 8 with weaker hardware still fast enough and competitive?
  • Pros: Expandable memory via microSD, 4 different colour variations, Good build quality, Responsive menu controls, The unique design and the very good haptics.
  • Cons: Low resolution display, Small memory for apps and games, Limited feedback from the keys, Built-in battery, No video-out, A higher resolution display and more storage versions.

  • Conclusion: HTC has made a mucho sympatico handset with the 8S, shaping it in a two-tone ergonomic bod, with very easy one-handed operation. It has skimped a bit on the camera quality, and not even included one for video chat, but the rest of the readings are solid, and there is even a microSD slot for storage...
  • Pros: Catchy and ergonomic design, microSD card slot
  • Cons: No front-facing camera, Subpar outgoing calls

Windows Phone 8S by HTC Review

SlashGear
13 December 2012
  • Conclusion: HTC very nearly nailed the Windows Phone 8 market. The 8S is well designed and a great size: not everybody wants a huge smartphone, and many people who told us they liked the design of the 8X but wanted something scaled more like an iPhone 5 had no such complaints about the smaller model.
