Bought this Phone as an "upgrade". The Camera is amazing, its the perfect size and weight. Now I have had it just under a year and it won't charge, at first I had to wrap the cord around the phone. Now won't charge at all. I Really like the phone, but quite upset with quality. I was going to try a Samsung next but still have faith in HTC so we'll see

sponmagnet1, 07 Feb 2013after about 2 years of using this peace of crap, I would say I M done using HTC phones, Why? ... moreYou should realize that its just an electronic device. If you want to play soccer and use the phone at the same time then get a legacy radio. Things fall apart. I have this for over 2 years now.Same phone, same battery and it gives me around 18 hours of use with heavy duty.
Had this phone for 2 years now. Battery started to go and it turned out it was the phone not the battery, sent it in, came back good as new and will last over a day now. Still does anything and everything all new phones seem to do. Cant see a reason to update to new phone. great phone
after about 2 years of using this peace of crap, I would say I M done using HTC phones, Why?
It breaks from the inside out.
1- first problem touch screen stopped responding correctly after six months of use, sent the unit to repair, its fine but the touch screen now showing symptoms stopping again.
2- USB charging port stopped working, when plugged in the notification light indicates charging but the its not, buttery keeps on discharging. sent it to repair once now its back again.
3- after up date to ICS the phone become very slow, HTC always say to Fix the problem do a master rest, hell whats wrong with them. I wont lose all my apps and data.
4- very poor battery life.
5- phone reception very poor.
6- no software updates to jelly beans.
7- this phone is dead.
PLEEAAASSSS never ever buy this phone, Buy a Samsung its much more reliable.
My HTC phone up and quit on me after 13 months of very gentle use. This was 1 month past warranty so the company would not even take it back to look at it. I am not the only one this has happened to . Do NOT get and HTC phone.
Jay, 27 Jan 2013my phone usually freeze, until i restart it over and over..(HTC incredible S).I would suggest to use "Android Assistant" from Google PlayStore and clean your cache and system cache. It works wonders to speed up my Incredible S. :P Do let us know if you still face any issue.

We should wait for an official statement from HTC, as a new official ROM would mean an official kernel for JB, which is currently lacking. Lets hope HTC doesnt disappoint us.
Jibran, 31 Jan 2013Just wanted to give an update. I had written to HTC asking their official stance on upgrading ... moreI suggest not to go for customer ROM till u get a official statement from HTC saying Incredible S will not receive Jellybean. HTC has already announced mobiles with 512 MB RAM wont be updated with Jellybean so lets wait for the official statement.
Just wanted to give an update. I had written to HTC asking their official stance on upgrading the Incredible S to Jelly Bean. Read below what they said:
As per your email, we understand that, you need information on the availability of Android v4.1 'Jellybean' with available Sense version on your device, HTC Incredible S.
In regard to your concern, we would like to inform you that, recently we have released Jelly Bean for HTC One X device. Currently, we are actively reviewing our product portfolio to identify candidates to receive Jelly Bean. Our goal is to prioritize review for devices launched in 2012 with our numerous carrier partners across multiple regions and then consider our ability to provide updates to products from 2011.
The catchphrase here is - "then consider our ability to provide updates to products from 2011". One thing is certain, HTC has no plans to update any 2011 device even if the hardware is capable of running JB - which includes Incredible S, Sensation (all models) etc.
Sad, but true. I am going in for custom ROMs from XDA devs to get better features.
