This one's a keeper. While the setup isn't the best, it certainly packs a punch. I have the black micro-arc oxidation version, and I like the feel of the ceramic. However, it also attracts quite a lot of sweat and doesn't last forever; you'll start seeing the metal underneath around the microUSB port. The AMOLED screen is great, but the PenTile display gets annoying once you start seeing minuscule dots in your reds and various colors. The screen definitely won't break after a drop; that Gorilla Glass can take a few drops on the sidewalk fine. The phone's size overall is the same as a Sensation, although it's far more streamlined and thinner. This'll fit in any pocket, although in order to achieve that svelte thinness, it doesn't have an SD card slot, nor can the battery be removed. The battery lasts for a decent amount of time; I managed to get around 3~ hours with normal usage. Overall performance is great, it doesn't lag as much at all. In fact, lag is mostly nonexistent. However, the storage is roughly the same as an 8GB iPhone 4S, and even less thanks to all the crapware. Another downside is that the phone won't get an update to KitKat at all, which is sad seeing that it would be able to handle it. I recommend that you root the phone to negate these inconveniences. Other than that, this is a solid powerhouse. Even better is that it's quite cheap, around $250. Get it while you can, you won't be disappointed.

hurricane, 27 Mar 2014I just got my new HTC one S, but the beat sound option isn't active. How do I activate it. Aga... moreYou have to plug in headphones to use beats audio, it doesn't work with the headphone speaker. Check the box at Power Saver at battery option an you will get a decent battery life from it and no this phone is not a competetor to Galaxy S4 by any chance.
I just got my new HTC one S, but the beat sound option isn't active. How do I activate it. Again, can someone tell me some dos and donts I shouldn't do to keep my phone for a long time. Its quite a nice,fast,and slim phone. I believe it ranks with the Samsung galaxy's S4.
