For anyone wishing to try Windows Phone for the first time, or even upgrade a previous Windows Phone handset, the HTC 8S handset is a prime contender. Its exciting colour range, which includes Domino, Fiesta Red, Atlantic Blue and High-Rise Grey, offers choices that are sure to make the handset stand out from the crowd.
However, it’s not only the look of the Windows Phone 8S by HTC that will catch the eye of potential buyers, but the spec sheet as well; while the HTC 8S is reasonably priced, its hardware offering has not been compromised. A Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1GHz dual-core processor powers the device, which also includes a microSD slot.
Several of the top Android handsets now come with quad-core processors, but it is argued by chip manufacturers such as Qualcomm that the vast majority of users (95%) only use two cores at any one time. In the case of the HTC 8S, the inclusion of a 1GHz dual-core processor and 512MB RAM provides ample power for a smooth user experience, but also helps to keep the price point down.
In terms of connectivity options, there is no NFC included with the HTC 8S, but it does have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G, which provide plenty of options for sharing media and connecting to the web. There’s also GPS and GLONASS included for navigation, plus a 3.5mm earphone jack for connecting a set of headphones.
The HTC 8S offers a stylish Windows Phone 8 experience at a superb price point
