The HTC One S features Android 4.0
  • But HTC still insists on caking in its HTC Sense 4 interface to accompany it
  • So you don’t quite get the full Android 4.0 experience. But that said
  • The interface is still lush
  • Featuring beautiful menu layouts. But there’s still little we dislike about the HTC One S.
  • Body highly sensitive to scratching (to be verified...)
  • Low memory for a multimedia smartphone (about 12 GB)
  • Low pixel density for 2012
  • No microSD card slot
  • Display could be better
  • Storage limited with no expansion options
  • Lack of sharpness on display
  • Limited memory
  • No SD slot
  • MicroSIM is a pain for some
  • Keyboard has seen better days
  • Call quality can be slightly tinny
  • Could do with a tad more storage
  • No option to increase memory
  • Sonically it's bettered elsewhere
  • Maximum 16GB internal memory
  • Second fiddle to the One X
  • No memory expansion
  • No removable battery

  • Abstract:  At first glance, the HTC One S has a really sleek look, mainly as a result of its ultra-thin dimensions at only 7.8mm. Compared to other supposedly thin smartphones, the One S makes other models look bulky and cumbersome.The handset's 4.3 inch screen is o...

  • Very fast, HTC Sense 4 is easy to use, Excellent display, More pocketable than the One X, Good battery life
  • Could do with a tad more storage, No option to increase memory
  • So what do we think about the One S - is it the victim of middle-child syndrome? Well, no. For £70 pounds less than the One X, you lose 16GB of storage, NFC and a big display but you gain a much better battery life and a device that sits more happily in...

  • In those that don't like larger handsets such as the 4.7" One X or 4.8" Galaxy S 3 the One S may well find a bunch of fans. The screen offers some great blacks, decent clarity and overall the matt finish feels great with a size that is much easier to use ...

  • Great size, solid, sleek design, super-fast interface and web browsing, excellent video
  • Sonically it's bettered elsewhere, maximum 16GB internal memory
  • HTC's take on the Android 4.0 OS is delivered at lightning speed, video playback is very good and music more than adequate.If you're not smitten with the literal big boys in the Android family, the HTC One S could be the phone for you.See all our smartpho...
