Considering changing from the galaxy w. Was considering the one x but the size just puts me off. And the one s is a nice fit into my hand and seems like a good phone with a good developer base. New to android when i bought the galaxy w but quickly caught the bug of developing and testing and tweaking. The one s seems to be a good base to start from

Switched from a Desire S, a pretty big change regarding performance and camera. But both are pretty good builds. Though Desire S has this horrible battery cap.

Coming from a Galaxy S. It was a good phone but the HOS blows it away.

Real upgrade!
I came from a Desire too. Had it for 18 months.

Before my upgrade I was contemplating just keeping my Desire as I was fine using custom ROMs etc on it, and just switching to a Sim only contract to save money each month.

Girlfriend talked me in to getting a new phone, and I'm happy she did. As soon as I got my One S, it instantly made my Desire look old and bulky. Been using the One S for about 10 days now and love it.
