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

by Jennifer Sikora

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.

The HTC Amaze is similar to the HTC One S and we are going to be giving one away to one of YOU. Use the Rafflecopter below to enter to win. Remember, the more ways you enter this giveaway, the better off your chances are of winning.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!
