Review Roundup: HTC One S

Submitted by lalit on April 2, 2012 - 1:08pm.

The second phone in the new HTC One Series is the One S featuring 4.3-inch AMOLED (960 x 540) screen, dual core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 8 megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and microSD card slot. The sleek phone is just 0.31-inch thick and weighs 4.16 ounces. HTC One S is now available in US (on T-Mobile) and Europe.

Like the One X, reviews of the One S are largely positive with reviewers liking the sleek design and speedy performance of the new handset, but criticizing the HTC’s Sense 4 UI and Pentile AMOLED screen. Vlad Savov wrote in his review “When it comes to first impressions, the HTC One S is an instant winner. It marries thinness with a subtle, exquisitely refined design, and its AMOLED display is exactly the sort of vibrant eye-catcher that attracts people in stores. It almost sounds like the perfect premise for a device that's all style and no substance, but that's not the case with the One S. Sure, on closer inspection that Pentile display can drive you to distraction, but I'm learning to forgive that downside for the rich upside on offer from the dual-core Snapdragon S4, ImageSense camera suite, and Ice Cream Sandwich OS.”

Overall, if you are looking for the best Android phone right now you should go with One X. However, One S is also not a bad choice if you don’t mind the Pentile AMOLED screen, which isn’t as good as 720p LCD screen on One X. Below we have added links to six best HTC One S reviews posted online:
