In this HTC Incredble S Smart Phone review, the smartphone under the spotlight is HTC Incredible S. Although judging from the name you may think it’s a simple upgrade to the HTC Incredible, well think again. This phone is a power house of its own and this HTC phone review will tell you why.
The HTC Incredible S is powered by a Qualcomm MSM 8255 1GHZ processor with the aid of a 768MB RAM and an Adreno 205 GPU. Although it doesn’t come with a dual core processor, this phone coupled with the Android just takes you on a jolly ride, every time.
The 120 x 64 x 11.7 mm phone that weights about 135.5g comes with a 4-inch screen that really caught our eyes and is definitely worth a mention in this HTC phone review. The 800 x 480 pixel WVGA touchscreen is great as the colors are kept vivid and clear even as we view the screen from various angles. In the front there’s also the cool rotating buttons that keeps up as you turn the phone into landscape mode together with the 1.3-megapixel camera. On the left of the HTC Incredible S, you will find the volume controls as well as the microUSB port. Running on the Android v.2.2.1 is definitely a letdown especially since many other smartphones in the market run on Gingerbread.
However, word is that the phone will get the Android 2.4 update. The latest version of HTC Sense on the phone seems to make up for the Android shortcoming on the HTC Incredible S. There’s a bunch of cool stuff waiting to be explored at the HTCSense.com site like the remote access functionality that it provides to access your contacts and other things.
As every other HTC phone review, we looked into the phone performance of the HTC Incredible S. Making voice calls was pretty good on this phone as the audio was both clear and noise free. Surfing the internet was also a good on this phone as you can do things like scroll and zoom web pages quickly with little or no delays. The Mobile Hotspot app that comes with the phone is a bonus too as you can share your 3G connection with others. The 1450mAh battery seems to provide sufficient juice for this phone to run for at least a day without needing a recharge.
The HTC Incredible S has really good cameras as both cameras do well in reducing noise. With that said, the image quality is amazing. Adding on to that, the waiting time between shots is hardly there while focusing speed is also pretty quick.
As this HTC phone review has discovered, although many may disagree, it’s not always such a bad thing to run on Froyo even if Gingerbread’s been out there for a while. This has to be said for the HTC Incredible S because it’s so good on almost every end, and that’s thanks in part to Froyo’s constant development. Besides, the phone looks stylish too, so it’s definitely bound to be a hit with many.
