Launched earlier this year was the start of HTC’s effort at stealing customers from Samsung and Apple, with the stunning HTC One S. It’s the first in a range of One series phones that is set to impress. The One X is the leader of the pack while the One V is the mid-range handset. The One S is at the lower-end of the market but it’s more than capable of making headway in such a competitive market.
Let’s take a look at the specifications of the HTC One S. It has a 540 x 960 pixel resolution from its 4.3’ Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and boasts the Gorilla Glass protection that high-speed trains and helicopters have so you would have to be very clumsy to smash it. The pixel density is at 256ppi which is very good considering it’s a lower-level phone and bodes well for the One X. The pixels per inch means that the colours pop and are vibrant as well as being filled with all the sparkling graphics you can imagine.
It’s a lightweight phone at just 119 grams and that’s what makes it a little bit more special than the heavyweight iPhone. It’s feels more portable and easier to handle, and at just 130 x 65 x 7.8mm it’s a nice size to work with and to keep in your pocket or handbag. The camera is where the HTC One S really stands out as its got an 8MP lens that runs at 3264 x 2448 – the same as an HTC One X. It allows you to film HD videos at 30fps and at full HD 1080p. It also features stereo surround sound for your videos and it has a front-facing camera for video calls.
Where the HTC One S really stands out is the hardware. It has a 1.5GHz dual core processor that is the fastest on the market. It shares it with the HTC One X and has 1GB RAM to play with. That means that you can play games, browse the Internet, listen to music and basically use many resources without the phone lagging or juddering. This is an incredible enhancement compared to others on the market, especially those with a single-core processor. It comes complete with 16GB of internal memory that is more than enough to keep your files, music, videos and images safe.
Another area that impresses again is the fact it runs on Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. This is extra special as it has all the latest applications and features that you need to run your daily chores. There is no wonder why HTC has been pulling in sales from all over and this new One series has really impressed everyone that has used one. While you might be an Apple fan and love the iPhone 4S there is no doubting that the One S is very special indeed.
