vm fan's review of the HTC One S

original version, submitted Nov 27, 2013, 11:20 AM:

I LIKE it!

I like this phone the best out of all the ones that I have gone through.

I've owned these others at one point or another too:

Nokia Lumia 710 -- Windows phone, it was alright but cumbersome to use
HTC Amaze -- Weighed a ton, like a brick - had an excellent camera for pics
HTC Mytouch 4G -- see my old review
Nokia E73 -- too old to remember exactly
HTC HD2 -- don't honestly remember only that it was $$ at the time
Motorola Cliq XT -- small screen, first gen Android
Nokia Astound -- didn't like OS
Motorola Defy -- see my old review

I need to have an over the air FM radio, which is becoming more difficult to find on a phone and getting good enough reception/no interference with earbuds. The newer model HTCs seem to cut out to silence or lower volume when there is any type of signal interference and it took me a while to get used to that.

Battery life is really decent for a 'droid!

This phone is as smooth as butter for me. Yeah, sometimes a random app will open and I find that the auto-rotation sometimes is a little bit too sensitive but given my criteria any other phone will cost an arm and a leg. I tend to buy them 1 year out and the cost drops substantially. I would consider trying the HTC ONE later if I end up not liking this One S as much. For now it does all I need it to, so far my favorite phone!

Oh, P.S. I am female and have smaller hands so sometimes it is harder for me to handle but one gets used to it.

I would strongly suggest getting a cover case as the phone is extremely slippery to handle if you do not have a case on it.

This phone is as smooth as butter for me. The processor if fast and never really had any rpblems with this phone. Yeah, sometimes a random app (?) will open and I find that the auto-rotation sometimes is a little bit too sensitive but given my criteria not many phones out there. I tend to buy them 1 year out and the cost drops substantially. I would consider trying the HTC ONE later if I end up not liking this One S as much.

This phone is as smooth as butter for me. The processor if fast and never really had any problems with freezing, lagging or anything like that with this phone.
