We’re here in New York City to check out the HTC One S — in the flesh, or rather micro arc oxidation build. The One S goes on sale the 22nd of this month for $199 on a new 2-year contract, and sports the new 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, Android 4.0 with Sense UI, and that fantastic 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display. Round back there’s an 8 megapixel camera with f2.2 aperture, and of course T-Mobile’s greatly improved (and very fast) 42MBps 4G network. Check out the gallery below (hands-on video coming soon)! Ambiance for the win!
While handling the device, the first thing that came to mind was how light and smooth it feels in the hand — it’s extremely premium. Furthermore, it’s incredibly fast in use, not skipping a beat when listening to music via the Beats Audio headphones seen in the photos while multitasking a live wallpaper, the Sense 4 experience, and while browsing the web. There’s a winner in T-Mobile’s new “hero” phone here.
