T-Mobile Introduces The HTC One S (Hands-On)

 

Today T-Mobile announced their highly anticipated flagship device, the HTC One S.  The One S is the middle brother of the new popular One family from HTC and packs tons of features all in a super slim form factor.  And though there are a few cons with the device, such as the lack of a removable battery, no memory expansion and a pentile display, it’s still a power device not to be reckoned with.  Talk Android was in New York live for the unveiling event and we got our hands on the juicy handset for your viewing pleasure.  Check out the hands-on video from our cool rep Matt and don’t forget to let us know what you think of the device in the comments below.  To quickly recap the features of the handset, it’s sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960 x 540) display with Gorilla Glass technology, Beats Audio integration, 16GB of on-board memory and ICS 4.0 with the new HTC Sense 4.  And under the hood you’ll find a dual-core 1.5 Krait CPU with an Adreno 225 GPU.  You can snag this guy for $199 on a two year contract on April 25th but in the meantime, check out the hands-on video.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    It’s not about the cores. This dual core out performs most quad cores better on batter and no quad core currently supports LTE. Non removable battery is the current trend in the market. Get used to it.
