It's A8, that's why S3 is a failed product from qualcomm, it's laggy, bad memory controller, etc. S4 is absolutely fantastic, yeah you don't get Tegra 3 games, but the performance is really impressive.

New version of HTC one s is model z520e and old version is model z560e(you can find that info at back of the box).
Take care while you choose, because price is the same and they look the same!

Hello everyone,

I am from Pakistan and upon asking around, the One S being sold here has the 1.7 processor. They say its a "1.7 Krait"...though from previous discussions on this forum, i assume its not.
Could someone please tell me the exact downside of the 1.7 processor, since i REALLY like the phone and would like to know what the difference between the 1.5 and 1.7 is.

Thank you in advance

i'm from the philippines, and luckily i managed to buy an HTC One S (S4) in italy. fortunately, mine was not affected of the chipping issues. happy with the phone, it's speed is a beast! no lags or anything. not even the home screen bug that affects almost all of you. i'm proud to be one of the rarest owner of an HTC One S with NO issues. the only downfall with the phone is the battery life, and the front facing camera which is only a VGA camera. yet overall, this is the best smartphone i'll ever had. :) HTC One S (S4) rocks! :)

Pros:

- Light, but strong
- Slick and elegant
- Battery ok (with some tweaking it lasts me a fair day with about 3-4 hours screen on time, with stock software it still does 15 hours runtime)
- Good Audio
- PERFECT CAM!!!
- Very good screen
- Fast!

Well, then there is this:

Nice device, but be aware that numerous users are experiencing a SERIOUS ISSUE whenever carrier signal is weak:

The phone will then switch homescreen/multiple screen view on its own in very quick succession, and disable all the capacitive buttons. It will keep doing this until you find a spot where the signal is better (if you're lucky). In the meantime, you will not be able to do anything at all: call, pick-up, use apps, whatever. Basically, you then completely loose control over your phone.

This issue has been reported to HTC by many users SINCE APRIL 2012, but no patch or update has been released yet as to (successfully) address the problem. So keep this in mind if you want to purchase this device... You have been warned.

I also highly doubt there will ever be a software-fix that will adress this adequately as there had already been three attempted fixes which failed to cure most if not all devices.

Various threads on XDA forum are currently discussing this issue, gathering testimonies from hundreds of users and organizing a communication campaign to inform the masses. Don't forget to check them out before you invest in this phone!

HTC, please FIX THIS ISSUE! Thank you...
