With the new HTC Incredible S, the clue is very much in the name as this is a mobile handset that not only performs superbly, but sports a range of features that any handset would be proud to boast.
Add to the equation that this phone is one of the best looking available, and indeed you have a quite incredible handset. HTC seem to have taken the middle ground when it comes to screen size on the model. Some of their earlier releases such as the Desire HD sported screens that pushed the boundaries of what is practical on a mobile handset, thus pitching this screen slightly smaller at just 4 inches makes the display appear large yet remain pocketable. Not only does the size impress, but so does the quality, with a great resolution of 480 x 800 pixels capable of being displayed along with a huge 6 million colours. Thanks to multi touch support, the device enables pinch and zoom to be used, whilst the important accelerometer performs all auto rotate functions. The fact that the screen has been reigned back a little with regards on size does result in an improvement in battery life, especially as the phone already features a large capacity battery. Thus users can expect performance results of around 6 hours talktime, and should you chose not to use the phone at all, over two weeks in standby. In terms of design, the reason the Incredible S stands out thanks to its simplicity, with HTC trading the metallic look for a finish that is entirely matte black, even down to the brands own logo.
The HTC Incredible S will prove popular with consumers not only thanks to its high specification, but also due to the fact that it runs on the hugely popular Android operating system. This opens up a wealth of download opportunities to the consumer, as well as the multiple homescreen system many of us have come to know and love. HTC have put their own Sense user interface in place, simplifying many of the procedures on this model, such as offering a simple overview of the homescreens and collaborating all of your social networking accounts together in one place. If you want to use the web on your phone, then location should prove no problem to you as the Incredible not only features WiFi for when you have access to a personal network, but with 3G, EDGE and GPRS you have the perfect handset for mobile web surfing.
HTC look to continue the success established with models such as the Desire and the Legend with this new handset, and early signs are that this prove equally as popular thanks to a modern design and the quality of features we have come to expect from HTC.
The HTC Incredible S and the Motorola Atrix are available now.
