Rated 4 out of 5Â by Akanksha Brilliant phone!
If only the battery back up could have been a little better, this phone would have definitely rocked! Its not all that bad though. Lasts a day with normal usage, but might be an issue for some avid users.
Great phone otherwise. Excellent sound and video quality. Amazing camera. Brilliant looks!
I luckily managed to grab hold of one of the last few units left. Sad that it's discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bobby78 Excellent Phone on hand
I have been using this phone from 5 months and its awesome. There were some battery hiccups earlier but they got resolved with the updates coming from HTC. Good android phone in performance, ease of use and for daily use. Call quality is also very good. Camera is good, but lags a little bit while focusing on the object. Video Playback experience is awesome on this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by debghosh One s is Amazing
It is an amazing phone. I am using this for the last two months. This is my first HTC phone. Before this I always prefer Nokia. But now I think HTC is far ahead of Nokia. In future HTC will be my brand. I saw home screen issue once. But after the last update no such issue.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by RohanEnTCEngineer Software Updates are very slow
HTC One S is a good phone, Battery drains out quick due to heating up of S3 snapdragon processor..
Software updates are very slow..
Android 4.04 update was launched worldwide in September but received it India on 12th December 2012
Why so late???
Desperately waiting for Jelly Bean update in India for past 3 months..
Jelly Bean has been released worldwide but don't know why still unavailable in India ???

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sathish79 Good Phone
Initially I had no good opinion about HTC phones after so many review I chose this phone. It's really worth a ton, it's a brilliant phone and I would surely recommend this phone to all my friends. I have already done that. The features which really impressed me are the image quality, video, music and the display screen. On the whole I would rate this phone 9.5 out of 10.

Cons-1.G sensor and Gyro sensor,caliberation is so so,battery(universal con)35hrs.Pros slim,touch sensivity.Although,a good phone at good price but the company don't want to be no.1 so it discontinued this model in some areas I tried hard for it so i got one.Good phone for music lovers.And the specs difference btw other HTC model is almost 0 but the price varies this thing targets company's reputation.THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE G-SENSOR.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Alpana Loved the phone but vry pathetic body
The first time i took my htc one s in my hand i loved the feel. It was light and razor thin. I loved the features, camera everything. But one day as my phone dropped from a height as low as a foot, i saw scratch on it. The black coating gave away showing a bad metal scar. I have used many smartphone and dropped them several times. None of them ever peeled this way. I hate to cover my phone but now i have no option. Htc please do something about this issue and change my phone body coz i love one s and dont wanna cover it at all.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rulerofsun Great Phone
I was fed up of Android in a plactic box and my last phone manufacturer had no idea what they created. I wanted to change desperately and move to Windows based phone. The shop i went to showed me the One S and i liked the feel of the metal and the screen size. 6 Months later I am very sarisfied. It takes world class images and the phone works great so does al the apps I have downloaded. Works for more than 24 hours without a recharge.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BrownBrady 8 Months Later: The Best Device I Have Ever Owned
I owned an HTC Amaze 4G which I absolutely loved, but I kept switching between it and my BlackBerry Bold 9900. The HTC One S made me leave my BlackBerry for good. This is the best DEVICE I have ever owned. Period. It has an excellent camera: The photos look amazing on this no matter how close I am to the subject! I love the 'Best Shot' feature which allows me to take rapid photos and select the best shot because single shots are usually blurry. Bright and colourful screen which is handy when I am reading the news outdoors. The battery lasts me the whole work day with moderate use, but the battery saver mode does help extend that. Most of all, HTC did an excellent job by creating something different other than just another cheap-feeling, plastic candy bar phone! I love the metal case, slick bezel design, and perfect size for holding and carrying around. I love this phone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sajin Best mid-range smartphone.
HTC One S is the best 4.3" mid-range smartphone with high-end specs. This is one of a kind smartphone with slim, aluminium unibody treated with Micro-Arc Oxidation.
I just love my HTC One S.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ashvit Review : HTC One S
The HTC One S codenamed HTC Ville was announced by HTC on February 26,2012.It is a premium phone designed and manufactured by HTC and a part of the One series.It was launched along with the One X and One V.
HTC's One S is a device with a level of fit and finish beyond the rest of the high-end to midrange device category.
Slotted between the low-end HTC One V and the high-end HTC One X in the HTC One lineup, the One S's specs and positioning are close to that of the flagship One X.
HTC One S has a simple bar design with rounded edges. The HTC One S is bound to grab attention with its 8 mm unibody. With the help of sensors like the Gyro Sensor, G-Sensor and Digital Compass you enjoy easy toggling between applications. The right side of the phone has volume controls whereas, the left side only has a Micro USB port. On its top it has a power button, a micro SIM card compartment, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top. Above its screen is usual earpiece and front camera whereas, below the screen has capacitive touch keys. The measurement of the phone is 130.9 mm, 65 mm and 7.8 mm in height, width and depth. The phone fits best in hand and is easy to carry.
The highly durable body is complemented with 4.3 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 960Ã—540 pixels (qHD resolution) and pixel density of 256 ppi that offers bright display, richer colours and optimum power processing while the gorilla glass layer ensures the screen is protected from scratches.
HTC One S uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8260A SoC (system on chip) which includes a 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait CPU and an Adreno 225 GPU.The One S uses the older Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 SoC, with a 1.7 GHz dual-core Scorpion CPU and Adreno 220 GPU.The One S also features a standard array of sensors, including an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor. The phone provides 1 GB of RAM.
The HTC One S was launched with Android 4.0.3 "Ice Cream Sandwich"and HTC Sense Version 4, which was later upgraded to 4.1.1 "Jelly Bean" update and HTC Sense Version 4+.
With an 8 megapixel main camera and VGA front camera, One S assures the quality. It hardly takes a second to start. Even with continuous photo shoots you can easily jump to HD video recording and also while recording HD video it can take photos. The picture quality and the colours remain same even in an indoor shoot. Apart from basic camera features of this segment such as face detection, auto smile capture, and panorama, the One S Capture a photo in the midst of recording HD video and even in continuous shooting mode it captures multiple snapshots.
The One series of HTC comes with Beats Audio technology. So everything you hear on your phone be it music, videos, games or even YouTube you get rich and clear sound.
HTC One S comes with in-built 16 GB of memory space and lacks with micro SD card slot. To compensate, HTC has come up with Dropbox that is integrated into HTC Sense. You can automatically save all your photos and videos to Dropbox and can access and share all your pictures directly from the Gallery. Dropbox also makes it easy to edit and share files.
The HTC One S is powered by an integrated (non-user-replaceable) 1,650 mAh battery.
Talk Time:-9 hours to 10 hours.
Web Browsing:-5 hours to 6 hours.
Video Playback:-9 hours to 10 hours.
ADD ON FEATURES
The HTC One S comes with GPRS, EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi that ensure you can stay connected no matter where you are. The A-GPS phone comes with Google Maps making driving through the city a hassle-free affair. With the Bluetooth feature you can easily transfer files to and from compatible devices.Other useful apps you will find on this Android phone include Facebook, Weather Update, and YouTube. The phone also comes with video stabilization, 25 GB Dropbox space, audio recording and the voice input feature.
Company has designed the One Series phones pretty different from each other.With the One S, HTC has created a new market category of smartphones which could be called an 'alternative flagship'.The HTC One S is one of the most impressive mobile phones both in terms of hardware and software.The 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED screen is a welcome change from the LCD-only lineup HTC had for a while. They've done much to improve the photo quality and add advanced features to the camera too.I would recommend having HTC One S with its compact and comparatively smaller display giving easy single handed operation. It also gives classy feel due to its thin ceramic metal chassis.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gimi HTC should give S4 processor instead of S3 in India
The HTC One S that will be launched in India is the inferior version with the S3 processor overclocked to 1.7Ghz along with the Adreno 220 GPU instead of the advanced and more power efficient Krait S4 processor with Adreno 225 GPU. The processor is the same as on the Sensation XE and has been overclocked by 200 MHz.The Sensation already has pathetic battery life. In the One S: Overclocking + Fixed battery translates to pathetic expected battery life and definite heating. The S3 is a clearly inferior compared to the S4
WHY WE SHOULD PAY SUCH A HIGH PRICE OF AN OUTDATED PROCESSOR ?????

Rated 3 out of 5Â by ShyamPrabhu HTC again not best in the pack :(
The Indian version of ONE S houses an overclocked outdated S3 chipset. The phone performance cannot be even com compared with the Sammy's flagaship droid S3. The phone cannot even outperform the samsung Galaxy S2. Very disappointed in not getting the S4 Snapdragon beast for the Indian version.

Very nice phone, feel great in the hands too, the qualcomm S4 snapdragon chipset is amazingly fast & faster than the one X .
The only drawback of the phone is it dosn't have Micro SD expasion slot for memory. otherwise the phone is great.
