Introduction

HTC and Nokia are among the few Microsoft partners that always launch terminals Windows Phone OS versions. In this context, HTC 8S is undoubtedly looking to win over Windows Phone 8 and HTC sure manages to deliver a worthy device.

Overview

8S comes with the same unibody construction we are familiar from the 8X model, and the rounded edges make it look all the more appealing. On the front side, there is the speaker on top, and in the bottom three specific Windows Phone 8 Back, Home and Search buttons. Unfortunately, the device lacks a frontal camera which is a serious setback these days when everyone is used to having a secondary camera on their smartphones. On the back side, there are micro SIM and micro SD slots which you can reach by removing the plastic cover. Overall, HTC Windows Phone 8S looks elegant, but the lack of frontal camera, the 512 MB RAM memory and some design choices may turn customers away from it. The 5MP camera with LED flash does a remarkably good job in proper lighting conditions but otherwise pics and filming are of average quality.

Verdict

HTC Windows Phone 8S is elegant and looks very much like the 8X model. The fact that it comes without a frontal camera and its limited memory make 8S a less desirable smartphone but we have to take into account its price and the fact that Windows Phone 8 fans donít have all that many terminals to choose from. HTC Windows Phone 8S is now the cheapest phone with Windows Phone 8 (way cheaper than Lumia 520 for example), and the quality 4-inch screen, the speedy dual core processor, and the ability to shoot 720p videos make it stand out as one of the best WP8 phones on the market.
