HTC One S Meta Hands-On/Review From Around The Internets

Let’s kick this off with a quick note and mention that all the HTC One S review device you’re seeing in these videos is the global edition and not the version that will arrive on T-Mobile. That being said, it’s still the same hardware and likely the same software minus T-Mobile’s own add-ons that we’ll see later this month when the HTC One S is expected to launch on T-Mobile. If you’re looking to read the full run-down on the HTC One S, we urge you to hit the Engadget and The Verge links at the end of the post for two excellent reviews.

The bottom line shows both sites love the phone however, Sense remains a love it/hate it proposition as an Android overlay. Hit the links below for both reviews with plenty of images to show off the One S in full glory. Otherwise hit all three videos on this page and catch the HTC One S in action.

       I think you’re just bad at typing… I’m 6’4, and can type on the iphone without issue.

         just because you can type on a iphone doesn’t mean i can..and the iphone keyboard is easier to type on than android keyboard..and this is about androids

    David, whats the likelihood this will retail cheaper than the One X? If AT&T sells the One X for $200, would it be reasonable that T-Mobile sells this at $150?

    Wishful thinking, I know.

    EDIT: This should really be considered seeing how Sprint will be selling their One X variant for $199.99….

      The Evo 4g (One X) on Sprint is going to be 199.99. 

      The Sprint One X will have NFC Google Wallet, micro sd, and a slcd2 screen. The T-Mobile One S will have none of these features. T-Mobile should sale the One S for $99.99

      • Evan Carter

         Exactly, but I’m sure T-Mobile will market it as a phone worthy of the $200 price tag.

    this is all nice and dandy but tmobile needs to release ics to phones that they already have instead of waiting for this phone’s release then update older phones…

  • Rhjupiter

    are yall serious? the on s has nfc wallet. yeah no external storage so what geez it has 25 gigs of free cloud storage that you can upload you sd content to anyway so whats to complain about? and a super lcd2 on the x ISNT BETTER THAN A SUPER AMOLED SCREEN. the one s screen is 4.3 and looks much better than the x becaue the x is bigger and the screen is ony slcd2. they both have s4 dual core so whats the prob?

      From the Verge….

      “The One X’s display is, without a hint of hyperbole, the best I’ve ever seen on a phone. Full stop. Seriously, I’m struggling to find fault with it in any way: it’s got a near-perfect 180 degree viewing angle and perhaps the most accurate color reproduction and color temperature available. At 720p, it falls well into “retina” territory where the individual pixels become invisible to the naked eye. It also lacks the infamous pentile subpixel arrangement commonly employed on high-resolution AMOLEDs like that found on the One S, and it runs circles around the Galaxy Nexus’s 4.65-inch Super AMOLED for overall quality.

      Historically, one of the big reasons manufacturers have chosen AMOLED over LCD is because AMOLED is thinner — it’s self-illuminating, so there’s no need for an external lighting arrangement. Considering that the One X packs its SLCD into an 8.9mm shell, though, that concern has all but evaporated (compare it to the 720p Rezound, for instance, at a beefy 13.7mm).”

      You can cloud all you want. How is the hell you going to upload 300mb with your freaking phone? Shove that cloud somewhere else.

      • Rhjupiter

        from the phone? who said you had to upload everything from your phone?

        • Joelee90706

          Is that the idea behind cloud? Upload your stuffs into cloud? 

  • Mancuso B

    One this is pointless to get if you’re and HD2 owner running android. I’ll wait until T-Mobile gets a phone that’s better than the HD2……the One X sure would’ve been nice. Again T-Mobile takes the retarded version

    • Mancuso B

      an* HD2 owner….sorry….just pissed at T-mobile again

      • Evan Carter

         You may think bigger is better, but the One S is a great phone.

        • kushissweet

           I agree completely, the One S only gets beat by the One X in a couple of ways, one is the quadcore vs dualcore which is the same speed but quad is better for 3d gaming.  and also the appearance, screen and also the body. The One S has the Micro Arc Oxidation so no scratches, and its a more solid phone (IMO). id rather spend $500 for the one S than $650 for the One X anyday.  however the one x second generation (which im sure they will do) will be freaking amazing and the quadcore will be fine tuned to give you the best of the best in one phone. thanks t mobile im happy

  • Joelee90706

    You and yourself will be getting this phone.
