Summary: Es un teléfono de diseño elegante , cuidado, con un procesador potente que aprovecha dos núcleos para mejorar las velocidades de cálculo, utiliza la última versión del sistema operativo Windows Phone 8 y además permite ampliar los 16 GB de memoria de almacenamiento también tiene una ranura para tarjetas microSD , a diferencia del móvil de gama alta HTC Windows Phone 8X .
Summary: El nuevo móvil HTC Windows Phone 8S es un claro intento de los fabricantes taiwaneses de obtener el máximo provecho en el sector de gama media de los smartphones . Tiene un aspecto externo muy atractivo y su aprovechamiento del nuevo Windows Phone 8 es verdaderamente interesante, pero tiene algunos puntos que podrían haber sido mejorados como el de la cámara de fotos. Un sensor de 5 megapíxeles hoy en día es bastante bajo y además no se incluyó el soporte NFC .
Summary: In the pursuit of bigger and bigger phones, it feels like a void’s been left for reasonable sized, reasonably priced smartphones. For those who don’t want or can’t afford a top notch iPhone, the Windows Phone 8S by HTC fills that admirably. Despite a few kinks in Windows Phone, and the lack of Nokia’s maps, Windows Phone finally feels like the My First Smartphone that Microsoft’s been aiming for, and for newcomers, the Windows Phone 8S is the best example of that yet.
Conclusion: If we had a to pick a favourite aspect of the Windows Phone 8S by HTC, it would have to been its overall look. Between the iPhone 5 , Galaxy S3 and Droid Razr M , we live in a sea of polished aluminum. In the past, we’ve claimed to prefer its feel, but HTC’s 8X and 8S have proven that a little aesthetic variety is indeed nice.
Summary: The HTC 8S -- also known as the Windows Phone 8S by HTC -- is a fun and funky looking handset that feels speedy to use despite its modest processor and has a good all-round line up of features for its price. If you're looking for an affordable route into Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 OS, it's a good option.
Pros: Refreshingly different design; Slick and modern Windows Phone 8 OS; Dual-core processor; MicroSD card.
Cons: Lacks Nokia's extra apps; Screen and camera are nothing special.
Conclusion: As for whether I would recommend the device to anyone? Yes I think it is definitely aimed at the younger generation and first time buyers, whether they be buying a smartphone in general for the first time or buying a windows phone 8 device for the first time. It is worth a look at to see what an elegantly made phone feels like in the hand though as the design and build quality of this phone is fantastic and i commend HTC whole heartedly for that.
Nokia Lumia 620 vs. HTC 8S vs. Huawei Ascend W1 review
26 February 2013
Excerpt: The Windows Phone 8 phones that we've reviewed so far - the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and the HTC 8X - were all high-end phones with high-end prices. More affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphones are starting to appear, and today Hardware.Info is taking a closer look at the Nokia Lumia 620, the HTC 8S and Huawei Ascend W1.
Conclusion: The HTC 8S isn’t an over achiever, it does exactly what it was designed to do and nothing more and for the money, that’s ideal. HTC haven’t overpowered the handset to make up for the incompatibility of the OS as indeed, Windows Phone 8 is shaping up to be a far more competitive platform that its predecessor and some elements like the UI and physical design mean that the 8S appears to be punching above its weight.
