I just picked up the one s today and I had the sensation. The one s is a beast the camera is amazing. And honestly the pentile screen doesn't bother me I can't even tell unless my face is like an inch away from the screen bit who uses their phone like that. And its so Much faster the devs here have done a great job with the sense 4 port but is not even close to the speed of the one s. It really is a night and day difference. And as far as storage I just use google play music and it stores all my songs without taking up space. I did love the development for the sensation but this one s is a beast.it really feels like a premium phone with the aluminum body

Not sure why they chose to have no SD or removable battery, but guessing there are advantages otherwise HTC wouldn't have done it.

HTC did it for quality control. That's why Apple does it. Thats why any of them do it. Makes it easier to troubleshoot an issue if you can rule out another manufacturers SD card or after market battery causing problems.

A jacked SD card or crappy after market battery leads to more warranty repairs for them.

Hopefully there will be bigger storage and more external battery cases for new Android devices if the trend continues, which I think is an absolute certainty.

Good for them, sucks for most of us who want the option.

I went to T-moble today to upgrade from my sensation to the one s, but NOPE. The pentil display was way to obvious for me. I love my display in the sensation. I could clearly see the pixles/blocks without trying. Now I have perfect 20/20 vision. It was just too obvious for me.

Now I knew about and was looking for it. IF I did nto know I might have missed it in the showroom floor, but after playing with it at home for some time it would have become very obvious. Once you see the pixles they dont go away. This was a major turn off for me.

The lack of SD no big deal at all for me. But the non removeable battery AND pentile display, I'll wait for a T-moble version of the One X or the next HTC product.

The offered me a free Samsung Glaxacy 2 or something like that but I love HTC and sense.
