After all the delays the Indian customers were put through, the final arrival of HTC One S made it worth to wait for. As besides a high end configuration, the groovy looks easily makes anyone fall for its love. The super slim model is just 7.8mm thick or rather we would say thin, and it weighs 119g which indeed makes it very light and portable.
Sporting a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Display, it renders bright and sharp content at a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. The phone comes with a 8 MP front camera that does its job well and is backed by Android 4.0. The interface provided by HTC is as smooth as it could be desired so we can say that overall One S is a good buy at RS 33,900. But as they say that nobody is perfect, even One S missed something, well this something is the S4 chip which the Indian version of this handset will be missing as it would be integrated with S3 SoC instead. Though there is no major difference in the performance of these two but being the latest one , the S4 lets the phone run cooler and consumes less power to operate. The models with S4 chips are available in US and selected countries at present, though in future it would be made available globally.
