The HTC Desire S offers a more robust design, improved processing power, and the latest HTC Sense UI experience, all in a sleek, streamlined package.
HTC’s Desire series has seen three successive incarnations in the form of the Desire HD, Desire Z, and Desire S. Each model has offered a user-friendly experience and an elegant unibody design. This line of smartphones has proven incredibly popular in the market since its inception.
HTC has been gaining market share with each new product line and at the 2011 Global Mobile Award event in Barcelona was awarded ‘Device Manufacturer of the Year’. At the event, the company also debuted new white color options for the HTC Desire.
The Desire S has an upgraded version of Android 2.3.3 called Gingerbread. It has a 1.1 GHz processor with 768 MB RAM and a 1.1 GHz ROM (ROM is the storage area of the phone). In addition, it features a 32 GB microSD slot, providing ample internal and external memory.
When it comes to transferring files or data from an old phone to an HTC Desire S, it’s simple to do with the transfer feature on the device. With a few adjustments and Bluetooth pairing, you can select the old phone’s brand, choose the type of data to transmit, and wait for the process to finish.
Communication is made easier with even more features. For example, when a call is received and the user is in a meeting or simply does not want to answer, they can turn the phone over and the sensor will automatically turn on. Subsequently, the sound will be turned off quickly and effortlessly.
Though the HTC Desire’s body has slightly diminished in size, the user interface has been improved with the introduction of HTC Sense UI version 2.1. This version offers a wide range of user-friendly features and new features, such as the ability to personalize the display with widgets, wallpapers, ringtones, and various applications.
Additionally, the interface includes a weather display indicator that changes with the local weather conditions, such as thunder and rain. The phone will even vibrate when lightning strikes to remind the user of the inclement weather.
