  • HTC Windows Phone 8S review: Icebreaker
    GSMArena team
    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?

    22 Apr 2013 | techradar

    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....

    Overall: LUMIA 620 vs HTC 8Snn@ GD (this specific part is reply to his review)n1) Looks are subject to personal liking. Both handsets, 8S and Lumia 620 are good in my opinion but Nokia is better known for build quality, reception and service support than HTC.nn2) Both 8S and Lumia 620 have exact same GPU i.e. Adreno 305. Even CPU is same. So get your fact rights.nn3) Lumia 620 has more PPI than HTC 8S! 246 (for 620) vs 233 (for 8S). This, because both have same resolution but display of Lumia 620 is smaller by 0.2". This will result in crispier images on 620. Again I would say, research extensively before writing misleading review.nn4) I have already talked about build quality. Check track record of existing and old models from both Nokia and HTC. Leave that part, I would just like to point out that you are already claiming Lumia 620 has bad build quality when none has ever held it in hand except Nokia employees. It says lot about how immature your review is.nnNow for all other people.nnMAJOR DISADVANTAGE OF HTC 8S:nnIt has only 4 GB internal memory. It has card slot so people will say, does it even matter? It does. WP 8 stores all games and apps ONLY on internal memory and by no way you can move it to SD card. Out of 4GB, only 1.6 GB is user available and that is barely sufficient for HD games, let alone apps. Lumia 620 has 8 GB internal memory with 5.6 GB user available. More than thrice of 8S.nn8S also doesn't feature NFC. So you can not use tap+share and wallet NFC features extensively and nicely implemented in WP 8.nnADVANTAGES OF LUMIA 620 OVER HTC 8S:nn1) HAAC - 2 high amplitude microphones for best audio capture in smartphones. Only Nokia N8, Lumia 920, 820 and 620 have this feature. 8S and any other phone lacks it.nn2) Front facing camera. Lack of this in 8S makes in built functionality of Skype in WP8 useless.nn3) NFC (Near field communication). 620 has it. But lack of it in 8S makes tap+share feature with other accessories like speakers, NFC tags etc and NFC payment feature of WP 8 wallet useless.nn4) Support for a 5 GHz frequency over 802.11n WLAN. This is recent adoption in smartphones and make high speed WiFi compatible with phone. Great to have it in 620 but 8S misses it.nn5) 21 Mbps HSDPA support in Lumia 620. Maximum speed of HSDPA on 8S is unknown on HTC site but many websites report that its 14.4 Mbps. While mobile companies are upgrading their infrastructure to support more and more 3G speed, its nice to have handset compatible with it.nn6) Nokia exclusive apps and location services like critically claimed Nokia Drive, Nokia transport, augmented reality app Nokia city lens, upcoming data compression technique Nokia Xpress, camera lenses like cinemagraph, smartshoot etc. All exclusive on Lumia phones.nn7) Dolby headphone sound enhancements vs Beats in HTC. Many audiophiles give thumbs up to Dolby when compared to Beats.nn2 stars because this phone still has beautiful and smooth WP 8 OS. Lack of said features is shame for this much price.
