The HTC One S is one of the two high-end phones from the HTC One series, along with the HTC One X. Due to its 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED display, it's more compact than the 4.7" One X, and therefore better suited for people who prefer a compact device. Don't let the smaller form factor get you down though, this super-slim phone of just 7mm thick sports a speedy dual-core Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 processor running at 1.5 GHz with Adreno 225 graphics (and, in some countries, the older dual-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 with Scorpion cores and Adreno 220), along 1 GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. This ensures for a butter-smooth and high quality user experience.
The two colors available are very different. The grey version features anodized aluminum which fades from light to dark going down the phone. The black version is treated with a process called Micro Arc Oxidation which HTC claims is much stronger and more dense than the coatings on other devices, although there have been reports of surface chipping on the edges of the phone.
