The Desire S is a smaller device than the Incredible, and is a true sequel to the original. It has unibody aluminum construction which really gives the handset a quality feel to it. The smaller footprint makes it comfortable to hold and use, and it will easily slip into a pocket.
With the aluminum design, HTC is forced to make some changes to how it might otherwise position things such as the volume keys. I am partially in love with the metal design. I heart metal.
The display is a smaller 3.7-incher than the Incredible S's, but it offers the same resolution. It also uses a super LCD, and looks bright, colorful, and sharp.
The user interface felt speedy with the 1GHz processor, and I noticed no lag in the pre-production units HTC had on hand.
