With Beats Audio, listening is truly different

So whether you are listening to music, watching movies, playing games or using a third party app like Spotify you will benefit from the Beats Audio profile. With Beats Audio you get optimised bass, boosted vocals and dynamic range, so you can hear your music as the artist intended. You can also access your favourite tunes on any music app, as well as thousands of online radio stations.

HTC Watch

HTC Watch has fully integrated search functionality making finding your chosen film/tv show a breeze! You can even browse without having an account. You can hear every detail of the soundtrack with Beats Audio. This is the best authentic sound experience on a mobile device. And sharing HTC Watch movies with family and friends on a big TV screen has never been easier with HTC Media Link HD. Once the movie is projected, it's easy to multitask on your device without interrupting the viewing experience on the big screen.

Media Link HD
Immerse yourself in high definition entertainment with the Media Link HD

An abundance of accessories

The HTC Media Link HD (sold separately), is a pocket sized adaptor which plugs into the HD port of your HD TV and allows you to stream content wirelessly from your HTC One S. It can either stay linked to your TV or you can take it with you to share content wherever you are, anytime. Once paired, your HTC One S will automatically link to the Media Link HD whenever it is in range and a simple 3 fingered swipe across the screen will let you push content, such as a movie, from your phone on to your TV. Another 3 fingered swipe will pull the content back to your device. This allows you to easily and spontaneously share on the big screen whatever is on your device. You can even multi-task by taking a call or reading email at the same time. So in a nutshell there are many uses for the HTC Media Link HD:

  • Sharing DRM protected movies wirelessly onto the big screen from HTC Watch
  • Wirelessly share pictures, videos and music to your TV
  • Use your smartphone as the home hub for your media content, allowing you to instantly share a web page or a video you are streaming from YouTube
  • Multi-task by not only mirroring what’s on your screen onto the TV. For example you can share a movie whilst using your device to send emails or surf the web

Up close and personal with HTC Sense

Capture video and pictures at the same time the camera on HTC One devices starts up in just under a second to ensure you capture the moment. Plus with photo and video capture buttons on the same screen, it’s easy to switch modes or simply snap a photo while recording HD at the same time.

Continuous shooting

Never miss a shot again…ever. With continuous shooting you capture every moment. Just press and hold the shutter button and the camera captures every picture until you let go. It’s faster, smarter and more intuitive.

Authentic sound for all media

The new, integrated music experience makes it easy to access all your music libraries, favorite audio apps and Internet radio simultaneously from one convenient location. And with Beats Audio built-in, you get rich, authentic sound.

Quick access to your top apps

5.0 out of 5 stars HTC One S 20 May 2012
Colour Name:Black
Recently upgraded to the HTC One S from an HTC Desire. It was very much a toss up between the HTC One S and the HTC One X but I didn't feel that the One X had enough extra benefits to justify the extra cost. Plus I don't really need quad-core processors as I don't do much gaming on the phone. I also felt that the One X was a bit too large for comfort whereas the One S is sized just about right.

After eight days my conclusions are thus far:-

The screen is vividly bright and the super AMOLED display is perfectly visible when outdoors (as opposed to the HTC Desire). The resolution is great and text, images and video are crystal clear - beautiful screen.
Sense 4.0 and Android 4 work together really well. HTC have toned down Sense where needed and streamlined things to make it more intuitive. If you are already familiar with Android you won't be scratching your head trying to figure things out. Although you will get the perk of finding little useful nuggets along the way too.
Face unlock is a bit gimmicky but does work and work well. Another improvement is the Swype option for the keyboard. Other people have commented that it is harder to type accurately (and quickly) on this phone and I agree. The layout is slightly different to before and the keys are certainly closer together in normal 'portrait' mode, so mis-typing is common. But trust me, select the Swype option and be amazed. You don't have to be that accurate and 49 times out of 50 you will get the word you wanted. Typing speed therefore increases ten-fold. Brilliant!
The camera is just awesome. You have a range of options - low light, HDR, panorama, portrait etc. And the image quality really does rival most compact digicams. You even have inbuilt editing to tinker with the photo's which is a godsend.

Colour Name:Black
I have had this phone a few days now and am loving it. I've upgraded from a HTC Desire, and the larger screen and faster response is certainly much better.

The new version of HTC Sense is an improvement over the old one, although still only has 7 screens and despite the larger screen, it is still limited to the same number of icons/widgets as before. However being able to create folders now should help this limitation. The Apps folder however now has filters so you can show for example only apps you've downloaded.

Battery life seems to be pretty standard for HTC. It'll last me a day, or less if I use it for a lot of web browsing. However as I'm often close to a charger it's not a problem. Certainly better than the old Desire with its two year old battery.

I've got the black version and am suffering from the very tiny chips along the top/usb port that have been reported in the media. However they are only noticeable if I look for them. I plan to get a case so I'm not too bothered, considering how scratched my old phone is! The phone does feel a bit slippery, so hopefully the case will help it feel more secure when I'm holding it. Another thing about the phone is it is cold to the touch, which is unusual. The phone itself feels so light and the thinness more than makes up for the extra length in my opinion.

I've not yet fully adapted to the keyboard. It does have the swype like feature built in which is good. However for some reason it seems harder to type on than the Desire. The lack of optical trackpad has also caught me off guard, we now have little arrows under the keyboard. I keep instinctively going to where it was and hitting the home button instead. Annoying, as is the task-switcher button which I keep brushing accidentally.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great phone 23 April 2012
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This is a great phone. Upgraded it from the HTC Desire. I'll agree with comments made above. Was inclined to wait for Sammy to see what the s3 was like but lost patience and I don't think I'll be disappointed

Great thing about android is you sign into the phone with your Google details and hey presto all your contacts are there. If you have auto update on Play store your apps start installing for you too. Great seamless way to set up. Long gone are the input one by one of new contacts that we all had to SUFFER in days gone by.

It's got a great screen, may not be HD but at 4.3inch or whatever it is are you going to notice the extra pixels? It's large without being massive.

ICS & the new Sense is slick. There's enough difference to make you feel like you've got a new phone (compared to 2.2 of Desire). HTC & Android have done well with social integration. Even two weeks in I'm still finding something new that makes me think "ah that's cool" which is always nice.

Camera is great. Although never replace my Nikon Dslr. Lots of features for editing and getting that instagram look for uploading to Facebook.

Downside to the phone are No SD card slot (but can i really grumble when my desire had 500mb onboard and a 4gb card?). If it did have one I was going to put a 32gb card in and put all my music on it. But that just aint going to happen.

Battery is never going to be great if you use the phone often. Need new battery tech for that to work. However im typically getting 14-22hours out of it. Thats is good especially compare to the 4-8 hours on my 2year old Desire.

And the worst one. SWYPE currently is NOT SUPPORTED which is gutting. Because if you start with swype and get in with it, it's so hard to use anything else.
