Rated 4 out of 5Â by pyrolighterfighter Misleading hardrive space
First of all I'd like to say that this the best phone I've owned to date. I started with a Mytouch, then a mytouch 4g.
T-Mobile misrepresents the HTC one s by stating it has an 16 GB hard drive. Not true at all. When I got my phone it only had about 10 GB of hard drive space before I loaded any apps. T-Mobile told me the other 7GB went towards there bloatware. Really? I find it hard to believe. I would really like to have my full 16 GB of space. I didn't realize this until my 14 day return policy had lapsed. They give you 25 GB on drop box for two years, then what? Do I have to start paying for it.
Other this major gripe the phone lives up to its advertising.
Great camera...love "Beats Audio" my music sound great when connected to JVC marshmallow earbuds.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by NathanM Good..at first.
As amazing as the phone was the first month I had it, it got worse. The features on this phone are just as you'd expect from HTC, quietly brilliant. But the ease of use, isn't quite as brilliant, the phone lags and is constantly freezing itself up, if you keep more than 3 apps open at once the phone heats itself up, and slows itself down. As much as i Hope its just where i live, the signal on this phone messes up, and I have read online other people having problems with this phones signal. The battery life on this phone is average lasting a a day and dying at the beginning of the next. The design on this phone is almost perfect, its thin, easy to hold and has the buttons placed precisely, but i hate how the top is the only part that comes off and I think the battery pack should be removable.

I have bought this masterpiece 2 months back. I am in love with this. place it over your palms and all you see is a ultra slim beauty crafted with premium materials. No doubt on the performance either. Camera, Sound quality, Web browsing, Video viewing is just too good.
The only problem i have faced is the Jelly Bean update.
Well the HTC One S has recieved this update(25 Dec 2012) by mine (HTC One S C2) remains a mystery(Till today).

I had a small slide out phone before, so the size and screen of this phone definitely had me drooling. I am rather fond of the camera with its fast motion capture and panorama photos. There is some reservation for the apps and battery life (depending on how you use the phone), but overall this is a great phone.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ndaloy Smoothie and unfortunately inadvertent touch
First time using android and didn't regret it!
Love the graphics, so smooth. The design also elegant and slim. Actually this is a lil bit too long for my hand, but i'm getting used to it.
I love the camera so much!! either the front or back, i love both of it!!
The back side of the device getting hot when i play game more than, let's say 7 or 8 minutes. But i think, this happens to all devices.
And the capture screen function that built in on device really surprise me.
I'm pretty annoyed when my fingers inadvertent touch the back function or multitask function. (i guess its because my hand that a lil bit too small for the device so i cant hold this perfectly, because my boyfriend didn't experience the same problems)
I bought it in Indonesia for IDR 5,200,000,- last November, its around USD 580. With that amount of money, i am pretty satisfied.
I really recommend HTC than S*ms*ng. :)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kester A strong performer with slick design
The design is really excellent and using this phone is a joy every single day. The apps are very responsive and graphic transitions very smooth. Also the camera and the quality of the screen has surprised me (I am a photographer). Yes, the battery could last a little longer, but two days is actually not too bad for such a slim device. The size is just right for me, although I have rather big hands. I wouldn't want a bigger screen than that of the One S. A little more memory wouldn't hurt, though. Oh, and thanks for the 4.1 update!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by debar A great smartphone!
My parents got me the HTC One S for my birthday last year because I wanted it ever since it came out and still today I am enjoying it! Especially the camera, 8 megapixel, and shoots 1080p video. It is easy to use, very fast, easy to customize, and it's size is great. And the Beats Audio makes listening to things sound good. The One S has a big screen and is thin and light.

I truly love this phone. I got this from Fido just last Decemeber. Hands down, I know my friends have iphones and all and I have fiddled with them but it doesnt compare to this. Size is perfect. Apps work very well. I have not had a problem with this phone. I love the color and how slim yet perfect it fits on my hand. Just everythinggg... Best phone Ive ever had.

I love the camera. Battery can die fairly quickly if your surfing the web for long periods of time, might last two to two and a half hours. However if you're on WIFI than it lasts a lot longer. I can't wait for jelly bean!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Gabbi HORRIBLE
This is the fifth HTC phone that i have had. The first one was by choice, the next four were a domino effect of broken phone after broken phone. Because of the warranty I have, the broken phone is replaced with a new one. However just three hours of receiving my latest phone it started powering off for no reason. The battery was not the issue because it was full. This has been a recurring problem with all my HTC phones so I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS OR ANY OTHER HTC PHONE! I hope this helps anyone who is looking for a phone they can count on to be ON when they need it!!!

Great phone. Best design ever. Very bright display. Fast phone.
1) htc is slow in providing firmware updates. This phone still runs on ICS when android 4.2 is about to launch.
2) Image quality is not that nice under low light.

for people who want a great phone without paying for high end phone this is it
- the screen is a keeler, it always looks great against other phones
- the camera- the of the top. continues capturing +slow motion
- a lot of fun features and widgets (what android phones doesn't always include)
- the design and the looks of the phone is incredible.

I love this phone! My first touch screen/smart phone is awesome! I wanted a Samsung galaxy s lll very badly,but was sold this HTC and haven't been disapointed yet. I too want better battery life,wish I can be able to expand my memory capacity with an ad card. So far,its been a great relationship with my phone. I only had it two months. I too wish I had 4g ,but won't complain. Beats is awesome quality feature,gorilla glass is soo awesome,love design of phone. Felt fragile in my hands first month...had to get used to it comming from my Nokia previously. I recommend this phone,think It's a very good investment as compared to more pricey smartphones. Five stars easy!

ive been using an iphone 4s for the past two years, and after breaking my second one a month ago i picked up this phone with the intention of using it as a loner. after using it for a few days, however, i found i quite liked it. it does everything an iphone does, just differently. internet browsing is just as fast, if not faster. good camera, customizable home screen is cool, texting is easy, good keyboard. all around great phone at a great price

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mixzzz i feel tricked
When i looked at the reviews at the internet it seemed a very good phone in its price range but when i got it i found out that it isnt the phone which i was going to pay for, you see One S has 2 versions - With S4 1.5Ghz cpu and S3 1.7Ghz cpu which is much slower. The RAM isnt so much optimized too and the battery life isnt good also. But the things i like is the AMOLED screen which is very nice with qHD resolution and the camera. But i wish HTC would make updates in the same time as for the S4 versions because NONE WANTS TO DEVELOP CUSTOM ROM FOR S3 ONE S...

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sivateja The best phone for the price
This was a phone I had to wait to get. A beautiful phone in all respects. Mine is the MAO finish so the feel is superb. The Android os is just great when paired with the Sense, which I think is the best interface right now. The features are great, the speed is blazing. I happen to have the older scorpion processor so the battery life is an issue, but its should not be so with the krait processor , but the speed is very good. The phone will please you in every way

So, I have this phone for a week now and its amazing. It took me few hours to make him look the way I wanted and now its brilliant.So, whats good? Beats Audio, HDR photos, CPU speed... Also, he is so thin that you can't believe it. Any of my friends that took him in their hands said it was the thinest mobile they ever tried. Definitlly I would recommend you. No need to say that it has so good organizares, apps, options to move apps in different folders. It gives you chance to make mobile funcionall the way you want and need. :)
