A slim and light handset with an excellent camera, a fast chip and Android 4.0, but HTC's software can be annoying, there's no memory card slot and the faster One X doesn't cost much more...

Versatile, with overall good performances and fair battery life, the One S is a very good, reasonably- sized Android phone. The drawbacks are a low screen resolution for a 2012 handset and a part-resistant, part-scratch sensitive body....

The HTC One S certainly doesn't look or feel inferior to the flagship One X. A lower resolution display is the main differentiator, but the One S makes up for that with a design that's more comfortable to hold and better battery life. If the One...

Up until about a year ago, if you asked me who the best Android manufacturer out there was I would have told you that my favorite, when it comes to hardware, was HTC. Their use of soft touch coatings made their phones feel great, and the company...

It's a 4.3-inch phone on T-Mobile's 4G network. It runs the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS, with HTC's Sense 4.0 interface....

The One S is the best 4.3in device on the market at the moment when it comes to features, battery life and design. HTC Sense is simply the best overlay from a manufacturer so unless you plan on downloading a ROM this is your best option....

If your pockets aren't quite deep enough for the high-end HTC One X you might well be tempted by the HTC One S. It has a luscious screen, a slightly more pocketable design, a powerful processor and Beats Audio technology too. No-one buys an HTC for...

gadgets I’ve been fiddling around with the HTC One S for a few days now, and I have to say it’s stolen a little piece of my heart. The hardware is just about perfect, with a 4.3-inch qHD display and a slender aluminum unibody shell, and software like...

The HTC One S looks good, feels good, and runs Android 4.0 out of the box. It's our favorite new powerhouse smartphone on T-Mobile....

The HTC One S for T-Mobile is by no means a perfect device. The biggest problem, in my mind, is the inconsistent voice quality I experienced. Almost every other facet of the device is excellent. The hardware is simply great, the display good, the...

HTC’s new One Series got off to a good start, and now the company has to do the same in the US. We’ve already reviewed the One S comprehensively in European form, back when the smartphone first wenton sale. T-Mobile USA‘s version...

Remembering all of the recent fond memories we’ve made with the European version of the HTC One S, T-Mobile’s version also delights us in many ways. Finally, T-Mobile customers will have an updated HTC offering that’s delivers that...

The HTC One S is one of the top Android phones. The HTC One X has a bigger, higher-resolution display and LTE connectivity (not much use in the UK for now). Hopefully the call quality issues I experienced with my test HTC One S are an isolated...

The One S is the Panther tank to the One X’s Königstiger. Smaller, lighter, not as visually impressive nor perhaps as iconic but at the end of the day still a fine and versatile device for use in the real world. That said it has been...

The HTC One S is the best phone on T-Mobile and one of the top Android phones overall for any of the four big carriers. Both AT&T and Sprint are releasing versions of the HTC One X, which has a bigger, higher-resolution display and LTE connectivity....

Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. HTC One S T-Mobile is the first carrier in the U.S. to launch a version of HTC's new One S smartphone, which will arrive for the carrier later this month. T-Mobile's One S is very similar to the...

HTC and T-Mobile have a lot in common. For months, both companies have been struggling to find a standout phone. And now, with the launch of the new HTC One S, both companies have a true home run on their hands. HTC's One S is a premium phone and...

The One S is easily the best smartphone available on T-Mobile today - nothing else comes even close. I also think it's currently the best Android smartphone in the US (at least until the One X comes to AT&T, and the EVO 4G LTE to Sprint after that)....

Don't mess with a good thing -- that's clearly, wisely and rightfully the approach T-Mobile chose to follow when minting its own version of HTC's One S. There's no doubt this handset is the carrier's new flagship, a crown previously...
