It comes with older cpu and priced high in india i would better go for htc one x with tegra quad core
Htc one s in india is only with dualcore 1.7ghz s3 processor which is not good.Htc did not keep their words.
if you are in india dont buy it it comes with an older s3 1.7ghz processor
kobby G, 22 Jul 2012one S is great so far for my four days with it..... really nice, but it eats battery! a batte... morethe battery is too bad.... i keep charging it almost the whole of the day. Damn! I don't even get 2hrs of video or gaming with it after full charge... too bad. And battery can't be replaced either. If this is common with all smart fons then i will always go for those with removable battery so that i can replace them on the go. I use my fons for almost everything.... business, gaming, navigation, and almost everything about life. .... One S is a powerful nice fon... but such sick battery fons aint for me; and they just aint worth it for anybody's cash either. Except you sit behind a desk all day!

One s is absolutely fast, I can't say i... moreI have tested the Galaxy S III (through a mate), the One X (through my Dad) and the Xperia S in a local phone store, I would say although the first two have some superior features, they are too big for my liking (the S III feels greasy in the hand all the time and the One X feels just a bit heavy) and the battery life on both is below par. Obviously you could buy an extended battery for the S III but with the One X that is not an option.
And for the Xperia S, well, the camera is good but really really slow, the battery life is woeful, and the box feel in the hand isn't nice. Also, I personally think Sony completely ruin everything about android. They remove the fluidity and simplicity and the good looking nature of the system (if you could call an operating system good looking) with lag and ugly boxes and they overcomplicate it, as do Samsung.
Obviously, the One S has a bit of a dodgy screen, I have sharp eyes so I do notice this and I will actually replace it with a normal qHD amoLED screen when possible, but apart from that there is nothing I would really complain with about this phone. Apart from the fact that when I turn it on it says Orange.
It's an osm set..... Have owned it for.more than a fortnight now.......
Xperiencing few probs like
Poor battery backup in.4g network
But it has much much good features ....... To make one go for it
Xcellent camera, osm chipset I have 1.5ghz T-Mobile version.....
N much more so.go.for.it without making a.second thought...

One s is absolutely fast, I can't say it's lag free, but the tegra 3 isn't better in terms of performance. The screen however, it's pentile, but it's hard for you to see the individual pixels if you're not looking for it. One x and s3 have a better display, S3 has a gorgeous display but not perfect though. Xperia s is surely not in one s level, it has a poor viewing angle (it's razor-sharp btw), and it's laggy a lot of times, standard features in camera and ui, I would say this is the best phone you can get in this price range.
@ Strider. you're correct this is an amazing handset my friend owns one. I'm using One X which can't be compared with this phone. At least the camera of One S is sublime. In general, HTC sense 4 is a mind blowing don't hesitate to grab any HTC phone you won't regret. Where can I get FM transmitter on the Market? cheers
I have used this phone for two weeks now, the 16GB black european version with the 1.5Ghz processor. The performance of it is sublime, and the battery life smashes that of all previous smartphones I have owned, and this one has been put through much heavier use. There is a slight chip on the bottom of the phone, but it has been in a flip wallet which doesn't protect that part of the phone. One thing I must add about the complaints about screen quality is that this phone is on the RGBG AMOLED matrix. This basically means that every other pixel is red and the others are blue (in diagonal formation). If you put a water droplet on the front of your phone (or a maginifying glass) you can clearly see this. The reason HTC did this was to lengthen the battery life. If you consider buying the One X you will have to consider the fact that the quad-core processor with the enormous LCD "LOOK AT ME" screen that your battery life is limited to hours, even on light usage. And for the Galaxy S III, it is too feeble a phone to buy. Drop it once and it will probably end in tears. Also, the enormous resolution of the display paired with the fact it's front camera is always on looking for your eyes will limit the battery life. Paired with the shabby TouchWiz android layout, this phone is not usable. And before you consider the Xperia S, on light usage when I tested it, this phone went from 75% to nil in around seventy minutes. There are obviously flaws with this phone, but it is less flawed that the more expensive rival phones. If you're worried about the chipping, then just get the phone in grey and buy a black case for it.
Posting this from HTC one s , and i can say only the best about this phone. When you are using it u have the feeling of wielding a finest piece of mobile technology. Better than so popular iPhone 4s and almost as good as HTC one x. I reccomend it to everyone , if you have decided to buy a phone pls buy this one , or at least from HTC one series , its your best choice. Don't take more expensive Samsung's or iPhones , help HTC reach what they deserve. Cheers

Its normal for phones to start having problems afterall not each chip is made perfectly so you might just be that one special one.
One S is very slim and having stunning configurations like 4.3-inch AMOLED Display, 1.7GHz dual core processor, 8 Mp camera, Beats audio etc.One S is also comes with HTCs latest HTC sense 4.
one S is great so far for my four days with it.....
really nice, but it eats battery! a battery sucker!! like a vampire!!!
Heyi i got some new features and some hidden feature also on http://heart2surf.com/htc-one-s-review-hidden-features-also/
