About this product
- Product InformationA svelte package, versatility, and ease of use come together with the HTC One S - 16GB - Blue Gradient (T-Mobile) Smartphone. Adonized aluminum makes up the outer shell of this T-Mobile HTC phone. It has tapered edges and it is a sturdy phone that still manages to look sleek. This HTC One is very thin at just 0.31 inches, making it thinner than Apple iPhone 4S which is 0.37 inches. It is also thinner than other HTC phones like the HTC One X. The full surface of the device allows for a sure grip and it repels fingerprints, keeping it clean. At the phone’s base is a dark silver hue while the top is more a light bluish-gray. On the back of this Android HTC device is an 8-megapixel camera with a protruding lens that features an LED flash to get clear pictures in low light. The camera has face and smile detection and autofocus. Users can also take advantage of the camera to take video. The front of this HTC phone features its 4.3-inch qHD screen. It is super AMOLED and has a 960 by 540 pixel display. It is crisp and clear, colors vibrant, and for the size of the phone, it is big enough to see things easily as it takes up the majority of the front of the phone. It does not lose any brightness or fade when looking at the screen from a variety of viewing angles. On the sides of the T-Mobile HTC One S sit a slim volume bar and a Micro-USB port for things like transferring video and audio. On the top of the phone users will find the power button and a headphone jack that supports external accessories like Beat’s audio or other headphones that are compatible with a 3.5 millimeter jack. Get notified of calls, texts, and other alerts with WAV and MP3 ringtones and vibration. Enjoy a range of messaging options, such as SMS, email, MMS and push email. People looking for an Android device that is easy to use will appreciate that the HTC One S only uses minimal controls to fully operate this phone. There are capacitive buttons for Home, Back, and Recent Applications with the phone’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The HTC Sense 4 interface on this HTC phone utilizes a more streamlined technology compared to Sense 3. This means it does not overwhelm and overpower the user, while still maintaining some of the most user-friendly features, such as full weather information for a person’s area and easy integration with Twitter and Facebook. The T-Mobile HTC One S uses a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor boasting an impressive 1.5 GHz. This phone has a good amount of memory with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

I appreciated knowing what I was getting going in. I don't mind the blurry camera, I don't use it much. Actually not blurry, more of a pinkish tinge to everything. I was never that impressed with my old HTC's camera's quality either.
Verified purchase: Yes

Good phone to grab used for $200 range or new for $300. Snappy Android phon
I picked up a used HTC one S for Tmobile to replace a Galaxy 4G. I chose this phone as a "bang for the buck" phone. Due to the successful marketing by Samsung, the used market for this phone is much cheaper than the Galaxy III or even the II. PROS: Snappy. Apps run great, and I tend to have a lot of running processes. No problem. Good camera, good screen, good size for your pocket good overall. I didn't love HTC sense, so I went back to my favorite GO Launcher. All the effects run nicely. CONS: The screen is a nice size for the pocket, but now that I've seen bigger screens, I'm starting to think I could make good use of that screen real estate. HTC paid a lot of attention to design. Beautiful aluminum, etc. But the back just looks junky. This is a great modern phone, but people think I have an old phone now. This phone is REALLY slippery and hard to hold. I guess it also has to do with buttons or something. The way I have to hold the phone makes it in constant danger of being dropped. After 4 years of owning various smart phones, this is the first time I've cracked my screen! This screen is $169 just to buy the screen. Then you get to replace it. Call reception was pretty bad, but got better after I dropped it. I'm not sure if that is coincidence, my perception, or what, but it seems that this phone doesn't have the best phone reception.

Great phone all around
Great phone for sound, text, pictures, videos. Perfect size even for my 15 month old son. Bright screen . Easy to figure out how to use the phone. I naught this phone because it was recommend to me I will recommend it to you. You can personalize it to you and make it work the best and most convenient way for you. The speaker phone is loud and clear some of the other phones that I have had have not been this clear. So clear that I have to turn down the volume. The only thing I wish was better on this phone was the battery life It seems to only last 1+ days before charging. But its one of those this you have to deal with.

HTC One S T-Mobile Pre Paid is Your Best Option For Cheap Excellent Service
This is the first 'smart phone' I have ever owned. That being said the battery life is terrible. Maybe that's because I can't stop playing with this thing. It can do everything and much much more. I find myself using for all sorts of things I never even imagined I could use a phone for. The calender is amazing. Internet is blazing fast. (T-mobile pre-paid) Customization is great so far but I'm still digging into settings to tweak my battery usage. Super slim and super light. Buy a $10 soft gel case and screen protector it will save your phone. Android apps are just as good if not better than Apple. I've already had several people ask me if this was an Iphone 5. I like that all I had to do was pop in my sim card and was ready to rock. I don't like that there is no expandable memory slot. I will probably not like the fact the battery cannot be removed in a year or so when my battery no longer holds a charge. The mini usb charger is nice since so many other phones use them they are a dime a dozen. Camera is very good for a cell phone. Still shots are taken fast and come out clear. Video is also excellent. Was at a concert a few days ago and sound came out very clear. Ringer could be louder as well as the ear piece. The screen is very bright and beautiful but max brightness setting will make mince meat of your battery. Face to face calling works great through Google but after just a few days of collecting lint from my pocket the front camera lens is pretty filthy. Read full review

Used phones can be a gamble, but this model is good in general
I was looking for a cheap smartphone, so I didn't mind that this might be a few generations behind. The phone didn't come exactly as I expected it to. The memory hadn't been wiped and there was a passcode still in use via an app. I ended up locking myself out and needed to take the phone in because factory reset didn't work and the phone seems to already have been tampered with. It would have been more than it was worth if the t-mobile guy hadn't been able to fix it. For what I paid, I'm happy with the phone.
