The new, smaller ‘brother’ to the flagship HTC 8X Windows phone is now available with pay monthly contract deals in the UK, the HTC 8S is a less expensive and more compact alternative that can now be picked up from free on selected contract offers in black & white as well as blue colour schemes.
The original black & white HTC 8S has deals available on O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone whilst the more recent blue edition HTC 8S is now offered with the same networks plus Virgin Mobile deals as well as Pay As You Go offers.
The 8S by HTC offers the same Windows Phone 8 operating system and features as the larger HTC 8X but with a slimmed down 4 inch 480 x 800 pixel Super LCD display, a dual-core 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, a 5 mega pixel camera with 720p HD video capture and an internal memory of 4GB expandable with MicroSD cards.
HTC 8S Key Features:
• Windows Phone 8
• 4.0 capacitive Super LCD touchscreen, with Gorilla Glass
• 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording
• Beats Audio technology
• 1700mAh battery
• 4GB internal storage
• Uses a MicroSIM card
This is a very funky smart phone with the latest Windows OS alongside all of the core features needed in a smart phone. Going straight up against the Nokia Lumia 820, the HTC 8S is a much lighter phone with a slightly smaller display and bigger battery in just as bold colour schemes.
If you’re looking for a very fresh and fun but functional handset that isn’t an Android or iPhone then this is a great little alternative!
