HTC Desire S - user opinions and reviews

  • honest joe

I've had this phone from contract in Nov 2011. It's still going but is showing its age now so I'm buying another handset on a sim only deal. The good news if you are still interested in this phone is the screen resolution, the stability, the rear cam...
