  • HTC Windows Phone 8S review: Icebreaker

    18 Dec 2012 | gsmarena

    No one`s had any reason to question HTC`s commitment to Windows Phone. The Taiwanese have been on board since the heyday of PocketPCs, helping Redmond quickly man a nascent WP7 army. Now they`re back in the thick of it for the next generation of the platform; this time with a smaller, more focused squad. In the couple of the so-called signature WP8 devices, the HTC Windows Phone 8S is playing second fiddle to the 8X. The current flagship however,...

    Verdict: The HTC Windows Phone 8S is a likeable little handset. It clearly isn`t one of the platform`s headliners, but it may be the right thing to help the fresh Windows Phone 8 conquer some new territory. The 8S was meant to make the WP OS more desirable an...

  • One of the first Windows Phone 8 devices, but does this mid-range handset impress?

    HTC have been a major Windows Phone player for a while now, arguably second only to Nokia in their output. With Samsung eating up much of their Android market share and Microsoft launching an exciting new version of Windows Phone, the platform is obviously going to be a key area of focus for the Taiwanese firm. So it`s no surprise that it hasn`t hung around to release some Windows Phone 8 handsets, with both the mid range HTC Windows Phone 8S and...

    Pros: Stylish design, MicroSD card slot, Great social network integration, Good for messaging,

    Cons: Lacklustre battery, Slow browser, Only 4 GB of internal storage, No smart dialling,

    Verdict: The HTC 8S is a good all round handset. It doesn`t do a terrible job of anything but it also struggles to stand out. If you`re set on Windows Phone 8 and don`t want to drop a huge amount on a handset then for the time being this a good buy....

    The big dog in the Windows wing of the HTC house is the 8X, but the stripped-down 8S version still delivers a dual-core processor, solid build, okay screen and a not-bad 5-megapixel camera. It`s on sale now for around £240 -- about as cost-effective an entry to the world of Windows Phone 8 as you`ll find, pitched somewhere between Nokia Lumias 820 and 610. Full review...

    Here on UnleashThePhones, our coverage of Windows Phone 8 has been very much focused on high-end hardware from Nokia and HTC, namely the Lumia 920 and Windows Phone 8X. This week, I’ve not only managed to get the Lumia 820 in for review; the diminutive HTC Windows Phone 8S arrived at my doorstep earlier today as well. The HTC Windows Phone 8S is currently the lowest-cost Windows Phone 8 device you can buy, but it does not compromise on mate...

    HTC dug deep for its Windows Phone 8 line-up, coming out with a pair of distinctively designed smartphones that promptly earned Microsoft “Signature” status. The Windows Phone 8X already impressed us, and now it’s the turn of its smaller sibling, the 8S, to have its moment in the spotlight. Is the 8S more than just a pretty face, or has HTC cut too many corners to hit the midrange price tag? Read on for our full review. With the...
