    WiFi calling is a great resource for T-Mobile subscribers, not only letting them save on plan minutes when completing their calls using a WiFi connection instead of a cellular signal, but also letting calls penetrate deep into buildings where cell reception could otherwise be spotty at best. That feature's present on HTC's latest Android for the carrier, its One S. Problem is, there's apparently a power management bug tied to WiFi calls on the One S, and it's threatening to drain users' batteries. The exact details of this problem haven't been revealed, but a support page up on T-Mobile's ...

    HTC's One S is now available on T-Mobile, rocking its Snapdragon S4 processor. You could always pick one up from the carrier for about $200 on-contract, but why spend money you don't have to? To welcome the One S to its stable, T-Mobile has a contest going during which it will give away eighty-two HTC One S smartphones. In addition to the brand-new hardware, T-Mobile will hook winners up with some free cellular service, which makes the contest all the more appealing. Most winners will just get a free month, but one or two lucky winners will receive a year's worth of service. Other prizes ...

    We knew the details thanks to T-Mobile who told the world proudly that the HTC One S will be available starting today. If you've seen our review of the international HTC One S and our hands-on with the Magenta variant and you liked what you saw, you can now grab your unit from T-Mobile. It goes for $199.99 after a $50.00 mail-in rebate card and upon signing a two-year contract on qualifying Classic Plan. Don't let the image mislead you: the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are sold separately. However, you get a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor with 1.5GHz ...

    HTC and T-Mobile finally revealed the retail launch plans for the One S last week, looking to kick-off sales this Wednesday, April 25. Just like AT&T stores with the Nokia Lumia 900 last week, it looks like some retailers may similarly be jumping the gun on the HTC One S, with reports of the phone already showing up in some stores. Apparently Walmart couldn't resist the allure of the One S for another few days, and at least some of its locations have been adding the phone to their display lines already. Now, the important question is whether or not the store has actually started selling ...

    You might recall that we're not particularly fond of HTC Sense 4.0, because in a lot of places, it holds back Ice Cream Sandwich, which is already elegant, functional, and fast. With Android's fantastic ability to change the launcher (meaning: the entire homescreen/app drawer experience), those running Sense 4.0 (or any undesireable stock launcher) can opt for something better. We've shown you options in the past such as Laucher Pro, ADW Launcher EX, Go Launcher EX, and others. Today, we're going to add a new one to the list: Apex Launcher, which is free in Google Play. What's great about ...

    We got to take a quick look at the new T-Mobile HTC One S tonight at a fun T-Mobile launch event. The One S comes to T-Mobile on April 25 for $199 on contract with a $50 rebate. It features HTC Sense 4.0, which is a lot more lightweight than previous versions of Sense, as well as the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. The One S also features Beats audio technology and a great camera with some cool features like a 5 frames per second high speed shutter mode that's accessible by just holding down the shutter button. Plus both movie recording in photo shutter buttons are always on the ...

    It's been looking increasingly likely in recent weeks that T-Mobile would eventually announce the HTC One S coming to its network on April 25. With a press event scheduled for today, and one unabashedly featuring the One S, at that, we were hoping that we'd get to hear the carrier formally reveal its launch plans for the ICS Android. With the off-contract version of the phone appearing on T-Mobile's website overnight, the announcement seemed all but certain. It's still a few minutes until T-Mobile's One S event kicks-off, but the carrier has jumped the gun with its press release, finally ...

    The HTC One S, part of the One series of HTC's Android line-up with the One X and the One V, is expected to land on T-Mobile's network by this time next week. Following the source link you'll land on the official T-Mobile page for the phone where it is listed with a coming soon label and a price tag of $599.99 (which is a full retail price). Unfortunately this doesn't give out any information about pricing when the phone is purchased with a two-year contract. However, if you have your sights on the One S, check out our full review of the international version to know everything about the ...

    HTC lost a lot of ground to Samsung and other companies over the past year or so, and is trying to make up the difference with its One series. The One series includes the One V (the "value" model with the "chin"), the One S (for the "mid-range"), and the flagship One X. HTC's One line represents a refreshed focus on the software experience and build quality. Like we mentioned in our HTC One V review,, choice is good. For a higher-end smartphone, is the HTC One S a good choice? Read on to find out! VIDEO REVIEW HARDWARE The HTC One S ships with Android 4.0.3 and a 1.5GHz, dual-core Qualcomm ...

    We know that plenty of you have been anticipating the retail launches of the HTC One X and One S in the States. Sure, you could import an international version of the One X (and the quad-core version, at that), but then you'd miss out on support for AT&T's LTE bands. We've heard a lot of rumors about both these phones, and with their expected launches approaching, some additional rumors and evidence have come to our attention with the hopes of confirming some launch details. April 25 is one date that's been tied to release of the One S, but we've yet to hear it confirmed. We should get ...

    Choice is good, and HTC is offering three of them for those wanting to take home one of their new One series of devices. HTC's One line represents a refreshed focus on the software experience and build quality. Essentially, HTC wants to reclaim the ground it lost in 2011 to Samsung and others, and its One series is its strategy for doing so. Its flagship One X is one of the most beautiful pieces of technology to come to market in a long time, but it's not inexpensive. For the budget-minded, HTC also has the One V, which incorporates the keystone features of the flagship, but at a much ...

    Happy owners of the new HTC One S might cherish their phones and treat them gently but according to recent reports, the outer coating of the device -- ceramic coating through micro arc oxidation -- isn't as strong as advertised. Scratches and chips are showing up and they're not the result of any abuse. "HTC is committed to delivering a high quality product and great experience for all our customers", said the manufacturer. With regards to the claims, the Taiwanese company stated that "HTC takes quality very seriously and are providing all customers with an immediate fix and we are ...

    Yesterday, we looked at a new leak concerning T-Mobile's launch plans for the HTC One S. While we had earlier heard that the phone might make its debut with the carrier on April 22, this new information seemed to reveal an April 25 arrival. Admittedly, that's not a big change, but we'd still love to finally get some confirmation from the carrier and end this guesswork. It seems we'll get that chance in just one week, with T-Mobile sending out invitations to a One S press event scheduled for April 18. Assuming the carrier does intend to announce when retail sales of the One S will begin – ...

    If you've been paying attention to the design of smartphones over the past several months, you've probably noticed talk of ceramics pop-up more than once. Manufacturers are trying to look beyond the standard metal and plastic we're used to seeing make up our phones, and into compounds with more attractive properties. Ceramics offer a lot of potential, combining low weight with high strength, as well as being friendly around radio waves. That all sounds very promising, but the devil's in the details, and owners of the new HTC One S have been reporting already running into problems with the ...

    The previously rumored April 22 launch date for the T-Mobile HTC One S seems to be just a little off as new leaks indicate that the phone could be on track for an April 25 launch. We can all live with such a small delay even if we haven't heard anything official. It looks like carrier employees have begun their training with regards to the upcoming HTC One S. As far as the release date is concerned, the leak above seems to be pretty clear regarding the date. If you follow the big green arrow you'll see that the HTC One S launches on April 25. If you want to see more training documents, how ...
