HTC seems to have priced it above 36000/- at least that is what below site has given price of the handset with downgraded processor:
:lol ... that's awesome ... One X is cheaper than One S :D
waited for so long for the HTC One S and now it comes with the older processor. a real shame. had liked the phone for its size ans other specs.. Now will have to buy the One X. Really disappointed after waiting so long
It is totally nonsense i am waiting for this phone from about 2 month & finally it gone to launch in india , they change the processor s4 to s3,why should i pay 33k for last year outdated technology which facing so many issues .It is so sad the htc cutting there now legs ......
What's this.... with S4 processor....
s4 one s nenamark 2= 60.7 fps
s3 xperia s nenamark 2= 37.8 fps
tegra 3 one x nenamark 2= 45.5 fps
s4 one s dualcore quadrant scored 4700p
tegra 3 quad core quadrant scored 4800p
almost same with doubled the cores!!
HTC will launch this phone with S4 chips in india later...
but already we have waited for 2 months... are another few months worth the wait or shud we buy dis one wid s3 chipd or shud we jus go for another cell phone now...
HTC are quietly brilliant in confusing people.
AnonD-54689, 14 Jun 2012Again HTC India changed the processor to 1.7GHz...WTF.. :-XXXXXXHahaha! This page is funny. I wanted the One S for so long, then yesterday finally picked up the Galaxy Nexus. And believe me, it's a GEM of a phone. Am so glad I went for this instead of stupid HTC that doesn't respect its customers and thinks we're fools. I love my Nexus :)
Htc India website mentions htc one s with 1.7ghz CPU. Lot of role were waiting for release of the phone in India. But by releasing the phone with s3 it has committed ONE big stupid mistake. No doubt htc sales are going down. Why should anyone htc when they are take people for granted.
We all have been waiting for this for a long long time ,disappointed .
Anyways here's the first comparison between s4 & s3 on ONE S .
Below is what is posted on THE VERGE ,after this benchmark how long that
statement holds true .
"As with many high-demand HTC devices, we always work with our supply chain partners to source models which will allow us to meet customer demand as quickly as possible. In cases where more than one part is used, we ensure the same high bar of quality in the part to provide an equal user experience."
DO NOT GET THIS PHONE if it got the S3 chip. Don't be fooled by the clock speed, the S3 is a clearly inferior compared to the S4. Google up the benchmarks.
I bought this phone on contract on Sunday and my HTC One S uses the S4 processor. My friend has a HTC One X, and I have to say that the One S is very close competition with the One X and it also seems faster than the Samsung Galaxy S2. Very please overall and my battery is lasting me at least 10 hours (I am a heavy user) and also it doesn't seem like it's heating the phone up at all.
HTC india site now says this for spec:
1.5GHz~1.7GHz, dual core
what does that mean? the clock speed will vary and depends on your luck ;D ...
Clearly, this seems to be a planned trick by HTC to sell out lesser valued old stock of S3 processor at the same rate as S4 processor. And what better place they can do that cheap gimmick than South East Asia... :)
The HTC One S that will be launched in India is the inferior version with the S3 processor overclocked to 1.7Ghz along with the Adreno 220 GPU instead of the advanced and more power efficient Krait S4 processor with Adreno 225 GPU. The processor is the same as on the Sensation XE and has been overclocked by 200 MHz.The Sensation already has pathetic battery life. In the One S: Overclocking + Fixed battery translates to pathetic expected battery life and definite heating.
Not to mention that the main reason to buy an Android , rooting and installing a custom ROM will be difficult to do considering the rest of the world will be on different hardware as compared to South East Asia. This will severely limit the number of ROMs that will be available to interested 'rooters'.
HTC say that this hardware change is due to shortage in S4 processors and just like in 2010 they launched LCD versions of devices and priced them at international prices they're taking the third world countries with their tactics.
They haven't even issued a statement advising people of the differences in hardware while selling them in their home turf, Taiwan.
AnonD-54689, 13 Jun 2012Something interesting here...
HTC updated the spec sheet with 1.5GHz~1.7GHz.
What does i... more1.5Ghz-1.7Ghz change means that HTC has noticed Indians getting pissed off at being taken for idiots and unwilling to pay premium prices for last years tech and is trying to say that when the shortage of the S4 processors is overcome they will ship the S4 version.This is just a gimmick though.
Like the AMOLED shortage in 2010, HTC never released AMOLED screens on their phones even after an entire year.I had the SLCD Desire for which i paid 28,000/-.
Even if the shortage is overcome in 3-4 months i sincerely doubt HTC gives two hoots about Indian(or better still 3rd world countries) customers and will give us the same tech that it provides the developed nations with.HTC screwed over its home, Taiwan with this trickery.
Something interesting here...
HTC updated the spec sheet with 1.5GHz~1.7GHz.
What does it mean?
Htc india has modified the specs. it now says 1.5 to 1.7 ghz. check out. india may finally get krait processor
The Processor Technology in S3 is 45nm and in S4 is 28nm(latest).
S3 heats up more than S4 and drains the battery more than S4.
S4 can compete with quad-core processors in the market;
HTC One S is better than One X and somewhat competes with Galaxy S3 and much better than iphone4S.
It is sad that international version of HTC One S comes with S4 and Asian version with S3.
I will get one from U.S or U.K.
