This device is plagued by the "home" button issue. I have had 2 devices yet and both were unusable most of the time because of this defect.

If you are lucky, it's a great phone, otherwise a waste of money.

Think twice before buying this phone.

Hey Guys can anyone confirm reception issues with one S, is restricted to 3G only?

Signal drops are hardware or software related?

Anyone experience chipping/flaking issues with grey one s since black ones have confirmed issues.

If the signal issues are software related vat is HTC doing bout it.

Hey guys can anyone confirm about reception issues with one s, is this hardware or software related.

Also has anyone experienced chipping/flaking off problems with the grey ONE S.

Heard that signal problem is software related well if it is then WTH is HTC doing about it.

Why did I choose this over the X
1) go and put a One X in your hand and make a call on it and you realise that it just too big
2) I have a friend with one and the performance in everyday tasks is not noticeable between the two

HOME SCREEN BUTTON ISSUE!

In many ways this phone is excellent, but it has a huge design flaw and becomes almost useless in areas with poor reception.

No point describing it in detail here, just google 'home screen button issue'. There are hundreds of people reporting the problem and receiving precisely zero support from HTC.

Obviously not every handset seems to be affected, but I have had two that were (replaced the first one), and the spreadsheet listing those affected is growing daily. Worse, the problem seems to take a few weeks to develop (so you will be outside your cooling-off period and will not be able to return it), then becomes increasingly bad after that.

Seriously, think twice before buying this phone. If I knew what I know now I would not even consider it. I certainly will never buy an HTC again.

This phone would be great except for the home button problem which can make it unusable. You don't get an sd slot, so what. You can't remove the battery, again really not an issue. Let's face, iPhones don't have a problem win that, and neither have I having had the htc one s for 6 months now. The phones quick, smooth and sleek. If htc can sort the home button thing out it will be fantastic. Oh, the problem started on my phone after 2 weeks, and I've had a replacement to try and solve it, but still no joy!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-09-10 22:08 from nDB8 - click to readAs i have beem uding this for thr last 3 months (ceramic black, krait processor) i can tell you:
1. Extremely nice design. For me is the nicest. At first i thought it will be long, but it is very comfortable and good looking.
2. Very fast OS. I had about 3 jams when the phone restarted by itself or by long pressing power button, but i don't see it a problem.
3. The coating is not perfect at least in my opinion. Is not that fagile but i didn't take any risk and went for a cover
4. Display is nice, but being pentile is a little grainy. For me is not a issue, but because of lack of certain subpixels the contrast is not as great (at least for writing that appears on the screen). Movies or games runs perfectly and can be seen in best condition. There are some new games that are not adapted yet but wiol be soon.
5. Battery life is good. Normal use can take to one day and 6-7 hours/charge, but the internet drains more quickly the battery than talking, mail or sms.
Personally i am happy with this phone and if things stays like this or i will avoid droping it down i will keep it for next 2 years. Perfect combination of looks, dimensions and performance.
