The global version of the HTC One S ($200 with a new two-year contract from T-Mobile; price as of April 18, 2012) impressed me at Mobile World Congress back in February, so I was anxious to see if the T-Mobile version was equally awesome. Spoiler alert: It is. The One S packs a high-end camera, the latest version of Android, and a powerful dual-core processor in a swank, superslim design. Among its few drawbacks is the absence of a microSD slot; in addition, we had some issues with the call quality in San Francisco.
Design and Display
The models in HTC’s One line of phones have three common features: a high-quality camera with HTC ImageSense, built-in Beats Audio, and a premium design. We’ve always praised HTC phones for being both easy on the eyes and well-constructed, but the One S takes phone design a step beyond that, with a classic aluminum unibody design that incorporates contrasting slate and blue-gray panels.
