HTC One S – The Newest and Coolest Phone From T Mobile + Giveaway

Jennifer here —

What in the world do you get a mom who has everything she needs? Well, if she is crazy busy like me, a new phone might just be the gift she would love to have!

I recently had the opportunity to review the newest phone from T-Mobile — the HTC One S.

While I have always been an Apple Iphone user, I am tempted to change to an Android phone now that I have had a chance to try one out first hand. I am sure that many of the Android phones on the market are fabulous, but the  HTC One S is an awesome phone!

The HTC One S is thin and lightweight. It weighs 119.5 grams with battery in, which is amazingly light. I held both my Iphone and the HTC One S in my hands to see and feel the difference and there was NO comparison.

The next thing that I loved about the HTC One S is the fact that I can talk/text on it. This was a feature that my daughter discovered and once she did, I started texting everyone! You just open your texting and set the settings and choose who to send your text to. Then you speak in the speaker and it will type what you speak! I love this hands free feature for when I need to send a text but have my hands tied up in work.

Here are some more great specs about the HTC One S:

  • Upload your entire music library, even Itunes (up to 20,000 songs) for free
  • 8 mp camera on the back and a face front camera of 2mp
  • 4G
  • 10.5 hours of talk time

The HTC One S is available for purchase as a contract phone, so be sure and check with your TMobile rep to find out more.

    it would make my life easier by stopping the prodding my hubby gives me to switch to an Android phone. 😀

  2. Amber Smith says

    It would make my life so much easier because I would no longer have to have a separate ipod to store my songs on. Thanks for the opportunity to win this.

  3. Stephanie H says

    I would use it to store my tunes so that I can listen to them any where I also would take pictures with it since I do not have a digital camera

  4. says

    A new phone would make my life simpler for sure!!! Being able to listen to my music, take photos and call from 1 newer unit would be so nice!!!! Thanks foe the chance!

  5. Kelly Commerford says

    A smartphone, in my opinion, is like having a mobile office/assistant at your fingertips 24/7. HTC smartphones are my personal fave, so easy to use!

  6. says

    This phone wounds awesome, I especially love the continuous shooting feature, you can capture every moment. Just press and hold the shutter button and the camera captures every picture until you let go. This is so handy for all those moments in life when I don’t have a my SLR! Also, video recording in HD is perfect for catching those special moments!

  7. Angela E. says

    This phone has everything I am looking for. Love the thin design and all the other features it has.

  8. Keri B. says

    This phone would make my life easier because it offers a lot of great features for busy people on the go, such as email, talk to text, huge variety of apps, lightweight & easy to use, etc. Thanks for the chance to get one!

  9. says

    I’m a T-Mobile customer (for years!) and I would love a better smart phone that let me stay connected to social media all the time. Love the 4G!

  10. Brandy W. says

    I need an upgrade so I can feel “connected” at all times. (I currently don’t have a phone that can access the internet… I know, I’m outdated!!)

  11. Karen says

    The 8mp camera and HD video would be awesome. I wouldn’t need to take another camera with me on the go.

  12. says

    My LG phone is 3 yrs old and locks up on me all the time so winning the HTC would be great. I could also do so much more on it than my current phone.

  13. Michelle Small says

    Talk to text would definitely be able to help when I am out on job or driving to daily job sites. Have to pull off road to communicate with boss. This would allow me to keep moving. Also love the battery life. Less need to charge during the day.

  14. Helen P. says

    I would love to be able to upload all my songs from iTunes on there! It would make my life simpler because the 8MP and 1080p HD video features on the camera would be really handy… it could capture any moments/memories and I wouldn’t have to lug around my actual camera.

  15. april yedinak says

    The camera and music player would make my life easier, because that is fewer gadgets I would have to carry.

  16. Lynn says

    The HTC One S would make my life simpler by keeping me connected and organized at the touch of my fingertips.

  17. says

    I am currently having major issues with my Blackberry that I’ve only had for 6 months and unfortunately my cell company will do nothing for me;( This would help out greatly in replacing my piece of you know what blackberry and the chance to get away from Blackberry PERIOD with a new phone;)

  18. Kenia says

    It would make my life easier because I would be able to use the talk to text feature. I would also be able to download all my music and take pictures of my twins in a quick snap =]

  19. says

    Sounds like an incredible camera, and I need a phone with a better camera on it. As much as I like my separate camera, I always have my phone and tend to use it more and more for taking photos. So many great features about this phone, but that’s what caught my eye first!

  20. Wehaf says

    I would love to get this for my mom; her phone is so old and finicky that it makes lots of things inconvenient for her.

  21. Vickie Bartlett says

    It would be so nice to not only be ableto upload some music, but to take photos and have such an all purpose unit. I don’t have a Smart Phone, so it would be such a joy!

  22. Tina says

    It would make my life easier as I don’t have to carry another device for my music. Also I don’t have a smartphone, so it would be great to be able to check emails.

  23. Leslie Galloway says

    This phone would make my life simpler because I just got a new job where I’m out and about a lot of the day, taking calls from new contacts, and always needing to respond to emails.

  25. Anna says

    Get better organized, check emails during the day!!! and make phone calls – my phone now has a 1 minutes battery life :-)

  26. bridgette busby says

    I have never had a smart phone this one sounds like the one for me. this would be a plus in my life.

  27. Michelle S says

    This would make my life simple because it has all the tools I “need” in one device. Now, I should always find non-electronic ways to keep notes, but this is easier to carry around.

  28. says

    The battery life would make keeping in touch so much easier — with a daughter in another state, we need our phones on 24/7 and the battery dies *so fast*.

  29. Catherine says

    This would help me keep in touch with all of my siblings and extended family while travelling with the Marine Corps.

  30. Sylvia Ortiz says

    The HTC One S would simplify my life by having available access to the internet, along with the functuality of the android apps & the added bonus of having a camera built into the phone. I am so in need of a phone upgrade! :)

  31. Shaye Whitmer says

    I have an android tablet, but have never used it as a phone and like the OS. Never had the chance to use it as a phone though.

  32. Brandy says

    Would keep me from losing my mind when I can’t keep up with appointments and contact information!

  33. says

    The 10.5 hours of talk time would make my life so much easier. I wouldn’t have to worry about running the battery down when I’m waiting for an important call.

  34. says

    Right now I have no phone, it is very inconveniet and people are getting mad at me because they can’t reach me when I’m out and about. So, it would make my life easier so I wouldn’t have to hear them whine. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  35. says

    I love all things HTC – they are the best of any phones I have ever had. I would love to try this new one! I love all of the features, I am sure it will help me daily as I tweet and blog!

  36. says

    Not only would this phone help me it would help my family. We just had to replace our air conditioner and washing machine and now my fiance’s cell phone broke. This phone would be a blessing at a time like this.

  37. Catherine says

    Wow you can upload all of your music on to it- 20,000 songs. That sounds great to me. Thanks for the chance.

  38. Naina John says

    First I loved its talk to text feature, it will make life simple.Second its battey life seems to be very good. I also need a good phone.Thanks for chance!!
