HTC One S: Review


The third phone in HTC's One Series of Android smartphones, the One S, was initially announced with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 (1.5Ghz dual core) processor, which offers performance similar to the quad core phones like HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. However, due to shortage of processors, HTC launched the One S in India with an older Snapdragon S3 (1.7Ghz dual core) processor instead. However, it still gets an aluminum unibody casing, 4.3-inch super amoled display and 8-megapixel camera with simultaneous full HD video recording.

HTC's Sense 4.0 UI is user friendly and one of the best interfaces for Android. Like the other One Series phones, the One S also has a dedicated button for accessing the task manager — this makes it easy to switch between apps or close them. The audio quality across various apps is fantastic, thanks to the integrated Beats Audio technology.

Overall, the HTC One S is a perfect blend of style, build quality, top-notch display and performance. However, it has a few faults — storage is capped at 16GB (there is no microSD slot), battery life is just a day and it's priced too close to HTC's own One X which offers a larger display and quad core processor for just a few thousand more (Rs 36,000).
