The editors didn't like

  • No microSD card slot
  • Display could be better
  • Storage limited with no expansion options
  • Lack of sharpness on display
  • 
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.
  • Second fiddle to the One X
  • No memory expansion
  • No removable battery
  • Body highly sensitive to scratching (to be verified...)
  • Low memory for a multimedia smartphone (about 12 GB)
  • Low pixel density for 2012
  • Average battery
  • Sense feels cluttered
  • No micro-SD card slot or HDMI input
  • Limited memory
  • No SD slot
  • MicroSIM is a pain for some
  • Keyboard has seen better days
  • Call quality can be slightly tinny
  • Sonically it’s bettered elsewhere
  • Maximum 16GB internal memory
  • Can struggle under very heavy use
  • Occasionally overheats with heavy use
  • Camera zoom is below par
  • No physical camera button
  • Could do with a tad more storage
  • No option to increase memory

  • 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 ...

  • Because it lacks a microSD card slot, the HTC One S isn't a perfect smartphone. But you will love it nonetheless....
