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 User Rating (3.7 Out of 5 based on 97 ratings)
Overall: I have been using HTC 8S for past 10-15 days. It will not be correct to compare the phone of this stature with 620. HTC 8S asthetics give it a big plus compared to Nokia's. Its very thin and light. There is a big 15-20 gram gap between Nokia 620 & HTC 8S.
Being Super LCD, the colours are vibrant on HTC 8S, thouugh i have not looked at 620's screen but whatever i have read, that screen is at best equal to HTC 8S.
In marrying Hardware and software, HTC is next only to Apple. Nokia at this price point cant come near.
I dont consider features like NFC as useful. As bluetooth works for me, why do we need to go back to infra red type touching of phones to get the data transferred.
The only thing where Nokia scores is Front facing camera ( though an inferior 0.3 MP VGA camera on Nokia 620) & nokia drive apps.
But those who rate product asthetics higher than features and those who want to hold a phone that costs 20K but looks much more expensive can definitely go for this one, dont even think of going for nokia as there the phone will cost 15K but will look as if you are holding 10K phone.
