jace7437's review of the HTC One S

original version, submitted May 15, 2012, 2:07 PM:

High Powered Phone

The HTC One S is an amazing phone. I waited to write this review until I had had time to fully dissect the phone completely. After having played with it for nearly a month, I think I have a pretty good feel for it.

The first feature I should highlight is the camera. I put this first because I did NOT buy this phone for its camera. Prior to owning the One S, I almost never used my phone as a camera. However, this phone has converted me. I use my phone as a camera all the time. It takes great pictures and the 99 continuous shots is awesome!

Next, I really like Sense 4.0. I am coming from the Mytouch 4g. So I am a bit partial to the HTC feel and I think the modifications to Sense are really nice. Its smooth and intuitive despite the phone not having a menu button. The menu button has been integrated seamlessly into sense 4.0.

Lastly, the thing that I was most scrupulous about when evaluating this phone was its speed. I am not talking about data speed (because that varies by location). I am talking about processing speed. I processor in this phone (I forget the name) is fast. I have tried to run many apps at once and load it up with tons to do. Even with all that I have thrown at it, it is still super fast. Only once have I seen a slight lag. It was in the advertisements on words with friends, so it could be the app.

Overall, this is the best phone I have ever owned.

PROS:
Camera (I was not a camera phone person)
Processor Speed
Look and Feel (thin but solid)
Sense 4.0

CONS:
Maybe the fact that it doesn't have expandable memory. This hasn't bothered me yet and I have my phone loaded up with about 100 songs and 5 or 6 movies.

1 Year Update
I have now had this phone for over a year. It is still easily the best phone I have owned. There is one quirk that has happened to me occasionally. Once I clicked the call button to make a call and the phone didn't do anything. So I clicked it again, still nothing. After a moment, the call began. A few seconds into the call, the phone hung up and dialed again. This has only happened a couple of times.
