    the screen resolution and processor are weak. The processor might not be so bad if it were running stock android, but with sense running on top this thing will lag…

    • Macky

      Actually the processor is VERY good. Snapdragons new Krait based dual core trumps the nVidia Tegra 3 quad core in many ways. This phone is perfect… Except for the fact that it isn’t a 720p screen. :(

      • jon

        I will be the first to admit that i dont know much about the progression of processors. I just know that my old Amaze was lagged and I had random sense reboots (and that was a 1.5 GHz…just seems to be going backwards here. The battery is also undersized. My Galaxy Nexus has a 1750 and I have no bloat like sense to contend with. Dont be shocked if this thing gets less than a days use..

        • Chatter

          Jon, processors are tricky. 1.5ghz > 1ghz ONLY IF all other things are equal. In this case, the old 1.5ghz may not be better than this new 1ghz processor. Core architecture is key. For many phone tasks, a dual core is more efficient and faster than a quad core as those tasks are linear. Thats why putting a quad core processor makes no sense when the OS is optimized for dual cores.
          Here, the Ville may/may not be better than what you have.

          Well just to let you know from what I read on yesterday those specs were wrong the One S isn’t going to be a 4.7″ nor will it be a 1Ghz and that it will be 4.3″ and have a 1.5Ghz dual core .

        • Anthonytillman

          from what i read yesterday on those weren’t the correct specs that its pose to be a 4.3 not 4.7 and its a 1.5Ghz not a 1Ghz im not sure if those are true but from where everybody has been getting these specs have been wrong from the main post who posted the spec sheet

    Looks to be the like I have been waiting for. Does it have Beats Audio??

    Since this is htc’s mid range offering I’ll pass on it and wait for a tmobile quad core phone. If anyone thinks this isn’t midrange just look at the htc one x.

  • Just to let you know the processor shouldn’t be weak there suppose to be two version of this phone floating around one with the snapdragon s4 krait and another with the tegra 3 quad core processor. Out of all the new processors that were announced the tegra 3 quadcore is weaker than Ti omap 5 and and s4 krait. It will most likely be much weaker than the exynos qouadcore as well.

      They’re two different phone models.  The quad-core Tegra 3 along with a 720p display is on the high end Edge/Endeavor/One X (the name keeps changing).  There have been no rumors of that handset coming to T-Mobile as yet unfortunately. 

  • Anonymous

    Rumor has it for the One S screen is 4.3 inches and QHD. That sucks. The HTC One X has a 4.7 screen and its HD. The One X will not have AWS band.

      That’s what I heard also.

    Wheres my Nexus T-Mobile ?

    • Q3 2012.

      • jon

        Just curious to know where you heard this? I know David said yesterday in one of his stories that “a nexus” device was coming q3. I take that as a new device, not the Galaxy Nexus..I don’t think tmob is dumb enough to realease a year old device with year old specs..

        • just referrig to said post… interesting to see what they bring out.

  • Anonymous

    If all of these rumors phones are true, T-Mobile is making good on it’s promise to regain its place as a major contender.  If we really get the LG 4X, Huawei Ascend D XL (Prism), HTC One S (Ville) and later the Samsung Galaxy S3, we will definitely be up there again.  Of course that depends on what the other guys are coming back with.  I’m starting to resurrect my hopes for T-Mobile.

    • Whiskers

      Yea if all you want is Android OS .
      Other wise T-Mobile’s phone selection is weak.

  • Good job T-Mobile.

  • Sanman202

    Good to see that the GS2 was ahead of its time even when it took ao long to rease in the U.S. The phones releasing in the next few months do nit have any specs worthy of an upgrade from the GS2. The GS2 is the best poece of electronics purchased to date.

  • There’s something wrong with this latest rumor on the One S. First of all, it says it has the same 4.7″ screen as the One X, I don’t think that’s right, and all of the rumors thus far have had it with a slightly smaller screen. The fact that it is QHD and not HD further indicates to me that the screen size is smaller, like previous rumors said. Also before, it was rumored to have an AMOLED display in contrast to the One X with a high res HD LCD display. Now this rumor says it is LCD. Also all of the demos and tests show a 1.5 Ghz dual core S4, but this rumor says “1 Ghz”. I think this rumor is off base.

  • so it’s not 42Mbps capable?  disappointing if true.

       Still up in the air. We’ll know before the day is over with.

    • J-Hop2o6

       21 HSPA+ is just fine. But David, the Ville is a Dual-Core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 (Krait). And it will have a 4.3″ qHD (540p) S-LCD screen. You should correct that. Oh, and the misspelled gyroscope, lol.

  • guest

    This is the lowest end of the One series. They have an S, V, and X. We always get the garbage model just like the Samsung Blaze instead of the Nexus. Yeah, tmobile! Keep it up! You aren’t fooling me though…

  • Ubrv88329

    I am really hoping we actually get something closer to this:
    1.3 to 1.5 Ghz S4 krait
    4.3in 720 screen
    HSPA 42+

    Unless I can get those specs I don’t see a reason to upgrade from my G2.

  • Phozfate

     give us the OneX or keep your phones HTC. 720p screen or bust

  • archie53

    According to the Verge, no micro SD slot and a non replaceable battery.  Just took me out of the market for that phone. Hyperlink Code

  • Caka

    Why do we always get the lowest models??

    • Anonymous

      So what were you expecting a 100 terahertz 9 core processor with 5 billion gigabytes of RAM and 18 trillion terabytes of internal memory and a implant that gets installed directly into your brain? Cant please anyone around here. There aren’t any phones out there that are much better than this. Get over yourself dude.

    grrrrri want quad core
