If you want the best phone that T-Mobile has to offer, then you undoubtedly want the HTC One S (our review). And if you want the HTC One S, then you probably want to get it while spending as little money as possible. Good news! If you pick the beasty up from Wirefly over the weekend and use the coupon code HTCONES25, then you'll get it for $125, which is a damn good price for this device (yes, I made a rhyme; no, I didn't do it on purpose).
Today's the day, T-Mobile customers: the HTC One S is officially available. This new flagship could be the hottest thing T-Mobile has ever seen, with all the specs of a modern-day powerhouse:
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display
- 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage
- 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
- 1650mAh battery
- Android 4.0 with Sense 4
If you're still not convinced that this is the best thing that has ever happened to T-Mobile, check out our review of the One S.
An Android phone is like a Leatherman Tool. It does a lot of things - without a doubt, a triumph of function over form. Android is the world's most versatile mobile operating system, the most tweakable, the most adaptable, and the most fully-featured. It just does more than any other comparable product out there. But if Android is a Leatherman, the iPhone is the basic Swiss Army Knife - compact, simple, iconic, and good enough for the vast majority of people, even if it does do a little less.
Update 2: Turns out that HTC is ready to make good on this issue, but only by telling customers to return their chipped phone to the store from which it was purchased and get a replacement. If, however, you'd rather send it off to HTC to be repaired, that's always an option.
Well, that was fast. Not more than a week after the release of the HTC One X and S in Europe, and Koush has already pumped out a fully working version of ClockworkMod Touch for the pair.
If you have any of the devices supported by CWM Touch and you aren't running it, then you're seriously missing out. Touch recovery is, by far, the most intuitive way to use recovery on your device.
If you're waiting for the One S to hit T-Mobile, a new piece of information just hit the scene that may be of interest to you. This particular piece of information clearly shows the release date for the device: April 22.
You know the drill with this sort of thing, though: this is just a rumor and it could change at a moments notice. With that said, this leak appears to be pretty official, so it looks like T-Mo is pretty dang close to getting its first HTC device with ICS (if the Amaze or Sensation updates don't roll out first, that is).
Taiwanese manufacturer HTC released a short video today explaining the process used to create the One S' unique, durable body. For those who need a refresher, the One S is 1/3 of HTC's new 'One' line of phones, debuted at MWC this year. The One S is just below the One X, and just above the One V spec-wise, carrying a 4.3" Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and a super slender 7.95mm profile.
Last night we got some hands-on time with HTC's new family of smartphones - the One series. While we didn't get a hands-on video with the One X (largely due to a dead battery), we did spend a fair amount of time with the One S, which shares most of its hardware with its larger sibling.
The main difference between the two lies in the displays. The One S packs a 4.3" SAMOLED qHD display (540x960), while the One X has HTC's new 4.7" S-LCD2 HD screen (1280x720).
Building on the hype surrounding HTC's new line of Android-powered smartphones, the Taiwanese manufacturer has released a series of promotional videos, showcasing the HTC One series and each device's individual strengths.
For those who may have somehow missed the buzz thus far, HTC's One series is packing some pretty impressive hardware, from the One X with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, to the more budget-minded One V with its 1GHz processor and pocket-friendly 3.7" display.
Just as HTC announced its new One line of Android-powered smartphones, Clove, in an HTC One blog takeover, announced that pre-orders are now open for all three devices. Clove also divulged each device's price, full specs, and expected release date.
HTC One X
The HTC One X, perhaps the most impressive of the new line, is slated for release on April 5th, carrying a price tag of £410.00 (or about $645) not including VAT.
