Here are our first thoughts about the HTC Desire S. It may not be headed to the U.S. in its current form, but it's a nice mid-range Android device.

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.
Motorola describes the new Edge as their one premium phone for the US for 2021, (besides whatever RAZR they may or may not introduce.) It's not a flagship, but it's well above the usual affordable fare that Motorola has primarily focused on in recent years. It has a fast-refresh display and a whopping 108 megapixel main camera.
In what has become something of an annual tradition, TCL has unveiled new, unique flexible-display concepts. The newest and most unique is the "360-Degree Ultra Flex", which has a 360º hinge that allows the device to be folded either inward or outward.

Anker SoundCore has a new pair of feature-packed earbuds on offer. The Liberty 4 have everything you'd expect: ANC, pass-through modes, hi-res audio, personal tuning, and a wireless charging case.
Motorola's moto g series has long had an option for people who want an affordable phone with a large screen and large battery. Recently, that's been the g stylus, which gives you something extra to use with that big screen.
