Rated 5 out of 5Â by aless3811 Definitely a phone to recommend
I love my phone. Is big enough. It can be easly handle with one hand.
Design is good quality.
The screen, the sound is excelent!
The camera, for dily usage is very good. Of course if you want good pictures you will use and DSLR not a phone :)
HTC Sense is gorgeous.
Battery life is good and could be better. But with all the features you will became a battery drainer for your phone :))

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Camera531 Best phone from HTC. A TRUE WINNER!
I have the black (ceramic) version that I got unlocked in London (I live in California) and I'm using an AT&T sim card. Even on HSPA, the phone is FAST. Almost comparable to LTE phones on the same network. It's also the best looking phone ever made. Super slick and all aluminum. The 4.3" screen is the perfect size and I can only use Super AMOLED screens (LCD's always look washed out now in comparison). Although the screen isn't HD, the colors and contrast more than make up for the slight lack of resolution.
Sense is by far my favorite Android skin and I prefer it even to stock (vanilla). From the design to the size to the build materials to the software, this is the perfect phone for me. The iPhone is too small at 4" and the 4.7" and above are unnecessarily too large. The dual core processor keeps everything lag free (it's better than the quad core Droid DNA on Verizon and Galaxy S4 on multiple carriers).
And I like the fact that the Micro Arc Oxidation allows it to survive reentry from space, and hundreds of One S phones could've been used as the heat shield tiles on the space shuttle (at least that's what I'm telling people). AWESOME PHONE! Thanks HTC.

I switched from Samsung to this phone , since my other one had broke. Reading every where that they would roll out with the Jelly Bean update in the summer, to read that they weren't going to update ? Then when I email support it says they're not sure, which really upsets me; since I came from a Samsung Nexus S which worked way better, with the newest update and everything (which is over 2 years old) to a phone that just came out over a year ago that is over one iOS behind.
Then with high-end case, and screen protectors, the power button does not work during calls. Also, the camera crashes. I've only had this phone for about 3 months, and I'm not impressed.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ayse Good and bad
I'm an android fan and never used another kind but this came in very handy in the first days I had. Then it started to break down. Now its screen is flickering without a reason for a while and that can be quite tiring for my eyes after some time. Recently I can receive calls but whenever I answer them, I hear so sound or the other person can't hear me.
Over all, all the qualities are good like the excelent camera and fast processor but the main purpose of a phone which is calling, is not working right now and that's frustrating.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by kfmomof4 Worked Well Now Multitude of Problems
I purchased this phone labor day weekend 2012. I loved it, was faster than my blackberry even if it wasn't faster than my friends' phones on other networks. Then,after about 11 months of use, the phone started to have a multitidue of errors. The phone would not show me the screen during a call, if I pushed the power button, then the screen would appear but then instantly disappear as soon as I touched the screen. It drops calls. When people call me, it goes straight to voicemail without even ringing. Sometimes it does not allow me to call out.
This phone makes me hesitant to ever buy another HTC product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tonysamia17 Best phone ever
I just want to say that the HTC one s is the most beautiful and useful phone i use, easy to use, amazing camera, amazing performance, nice battery...
I have one concern, the external flash light is to low, you can't see it clearly when charging or when you got notification and the phone is locked...

Bought my first HTC a few months back. And one S drew me mostly coz of the slim profile, AMOLED display and the unibody design. Had a hard time tracking this baby down but finally got my hands on it. Been using it roughly and yeah dropped it a couple of time. Unfortunately have scars on the phone to tell... but i like my phone to be used not covered in some big fat jacket all the time that makes the designer's work go down the drain. The photo quality is awsome but wished the front camera would have been better than the VGA one offered. in terms of usability its really good and responsive... have multiple apps on all the time without any hiccups. The thing that is problematic though is the battery life..... needs a charge every 10hrs with moderate r little use.... forcing me to carry the charger around always. If you can live with that flaw its a real headturner. Wish we would be getting the blinkfeed update too.
Overall I higly recomend this phone if you can still find it.... better that the desire 600 series in my view.

Although my One S had a fall, and the screen adopted a new look referred to as the "Shattared App" lol. I love the HTC One S.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LondonSteve Absoluteluy Brilliant!!!
I have just upgraded to the HTC One S from the HTC Desire HD and I can honesstly say that the One S is an amazing device. The speed and smoothness of the Ones S is incredible and a huge step up from the Desire HD, which is still an amazing phone too. I am amazed at how light and thin the One S is. It's almost too light but seems to be very strong. I would recommend getting a case because it is so thin that even with a case, it's still great! The screen is very crisp, clear and bright. Being a Amoled screen with a pentile matrix system, there are times when certain characters look slightly jagged if you look very closely however on the whole, the text is very clear and easy to read and pictures and video are stunning. Compared alongside the Desire HD, the One S seems almost too sharp due to the fact that the Desire HD has a lower resolution and is slightly blurry. The One S screen on it's own however looks beautiful, with colours and contrast at lovely levels. The screen is incredibly bright but I find it is best to use the ambient light sensor to control the level. The One S handles graphics intensive games like Riptide and GTA without any issue as it has the latest 225 GPU and the dualcore cpu is very impressive. I tried my best to find fault with the phone and the only thing I don't love is the sharp edge on the top of the phone but it is hardly an issue. With a case, i don't notice it and this is purely just my perspective and not a general issue. Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) is very robust and the performance is excellent. The new Sense system is also very well integrated and not too intrusive and power hungry. The battery life is excellent and i can now get over a day of use out of it, which is a big improvement over the One X and the Desire HD. The only area that could have been better is the storage capacity. It is 16GB, which is generally quite a bit, but I can not fit all my music on to it but I generally put music on as and when needed and manage my space. Having Dropbox is very handy too, with 25GB free for 2years. I generally load my videos and photos directly up to Dropbox whne I am on wifi, which enables me to free up storage on the phone. 32GB of internal storage would have been ideal though. I can honestly say the One S is the best smartphone I have experienced. HTC are back on track with the new ONE series of phones and 2012 will be a great year for them!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KenW Good successor to my HTC Desire
I was looking for another high end phone to replace my Desire, which is now 2 years old. The One S was attractive - it hit the size sweet spot and the features were good enough for my needs. The One X is marketed as the flagship, but I have small hands and find it too big. Based on the hardware features alone the One S could be a worthy flagship in its own right.
After about 2 and a half weeks of use I have found it quite comfortable to use. It was the build quality that attracted me to the One S, and in the hand it feels utterly solid (except for some slight creaking from the removable top cover, although it doesn't seem to actually move). The camera is responsive, and the battery life is strikingly good. The UI is mostly smooth and fluid, and apps load very quickly compared to the Desire. Audio output is good and loud, and the numbers reported in the GSMArena review show the One S is one of the best music phones you can buy.
What could be better? More storage, for one. The available storage is enough for me, but given its prowess in music output it would have been good to have more space for music. There seem to be some niggling software issues as well - my One S spontaneously reboots every 2-3 days, I have managed to crash the Sense homescreen app just swiping through the calendar widget, more than once, the phone sometimes reports 'No Service' even though calls and data still function, and the data link sometimes goes wrong, giving me DNS lookup failures on everything online until I reboot. Finally, I seem to have encountered a mild form of the chipping issues with the black version.
In conclusion, though, my impression of this phone is good. The build quality is excellent, it is a fine phone in the hand and I do not regret choosing it over the One X or Galaxy Nexus or (upcoming) Samsung S3.

I've had this phone for a few days but I love it! I switched from a Motorola Atrix 4g, and I haven't looked back. The phone is fast, gets great reception, takes AMAZING pictures/videos, and is all around wonderful. The change in texting for me from Swype to the HTC version takes a little getting used to, some of the secondary buttons (?, !, :, etc) are in different places. It just takes some getting used to.
The only unfortunate feature (or lack thereof) that I've found is the inability to have ascending tones for the stock alarm, as in there's no way to have the alarm volume start off low and increasingly get louder. I found this out the hard way when my alarm jolted me out of bed this morning. If this isn't a big deal for you, no worries! This phone is otherwise great.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sabdin HTC One is the One
The One S is full of exciting and entertaining features, slick and sharp in your pocket with a great camera. However a daily charge is a must if you are a heavy user. Web browsing is faster then expected and the sound quality is great. A perfect phone for entertainment.

One X is good but One S is excellent, 4,7" is so big that it's not nice-looking when we dial, 4,3" is suitable for us.
