HTC Windows Phone 8S

HTC Windows Phone 8 device, the 8S is a little bit smaller than its more expensive cousin, the 8X. HTC was amongst the first ones to launch Windows Phone 8 devices.

According to specs 8S seems to be a mid range handset. It is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and packs in 512 MB of RAM. With a 5 megapixel camera, 720p video, 4 GB of internal storage and 32GB expandable memory via MicroSD card slot, everything about it screams mid-range.

The device has Super LCD Gorilla Glass display and 4 inches display size with its 480 x 800 resolution coming in at 233 pixels per inch. The only potentially disappointing spec is its 1,700 mAh battery, which seems a little on the small side, but it's around the same size as the one in the bigger and more powerful Samsung Galaxy S2 and that holds up well enough.

The first thing to stand out about the HTC 8S is its two-tone colour scheme. Bright colours have become a staple of Windows Phone, but normally you just get the one colour per handset. The bulk of the phone is one colour, while a stripe at the bottom is another. Interestingly this sets it apart even from the other phone in the range- the HTC 8X, which again is all one colour. 

With dimensions of 120.5 x 63 x 10.3mm it's not the thinnest phone you'll ever see, but the curved edges make it seem slightly slimmer and sleeker than it actually is. At 113g it's got a decent amount of weight to it, making it feel like a fairly premium device.

The top edge of the phone has a 3.5mm headphone port on the left and the power button on the right. The bottom edge is home to a micro USB port. You'll also find the microphone here. The top of the right edge houses a volume rocker while the bottom is home to a dedicated camera button. The left edge has absolutely no buttons or ports on it.

You can't remove the back of the HTC Windows Phone 8S. Instead the little stripe at the bottom is removable and gives you access to the MicroSD card slot and the micro SIM. Overall, 8S is a beautiful handset with good build quality.
