HTC Desire S Hands-On (Video)

The original HTC Desire was an award-winning and highly acclaimed device. It’s no wonder HTC wanted to do a successor. The just-announced Desire S is running with very similar specs to the original Desire: it has a 3.7 WVGA Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU, 768MB of RAM, and 1.1 GB of ROM.

After getting some hands-on time with the Desire S, we were not really overwhelmed. It’s just a Desire refresh. Of course it has HTC Sense in it’s newer iteration as well as Android 2.3 Gingerbread but 1GHz Snapdragon is something everybody thought HTC might be dropping. Anyways, build quality is good, as you’d expect from HTC, it’s just that we don’t see that much innovation from HTC lately.
