Excerpt: i bought this phone in april and it crashed x mas eve will turn on to the htc screen and then turn blue was alright until then just have to deal with the storage space but i liked it untill it crashed
Excerpt: I like the look, the windows phone layout. Camera was great but there is one major fault. In this version of the phone you CANNOT use any MicroSD card to expand your memory for apps. You can only use the MicroSD card for pics and vids but thats it.
Excerpt: At first 1 month it was awesome phone with long life battery, Since yesterday night I check for windows update via wifi but there were no update. Then at the time it was 97 % battery life and shows 3 days... And I've got set in battery saver mode.
Excerpt: I've had HTC phones for years, with my last phone being a HTC HD7 and the one before that being a HTC HD2. I bought the HTC 8S knowing that it only had a rear facing camera, no compass and only 4gb of internal memory. With an Micro SD Card I can increase the phone memory by an extra 32Gb right...
