HTC One S Now Down To £370

HTC's replacement for the Sensation XE/Sensation duo (albeit without the Beats headphones) is the One S and can now be had from Three for a mere £370.

Like its predecessor, it has a 4.3-inch 960 by 540 pixels scratch resistant display, a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 768MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage (without any microSD card slot) and Beats Audio technology.

There are a few big differences though with the biggest being the camera. Although it is "only" an eight megapixel one, it has a low light F/2.0 lens that HTC says is the best on the market. The camera can take up to four pictures in one second and includes a few more photo-centric features as part of HTC's Imagesense technology.

There's also Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which has yet to be launched on last generation's HTC handsets plus the fact tht it is less than 8mm thick. The Taiwanese company has also partnered with Dropbox to give 25GB free online storage to owners of One S, V and X for two years.

The One S though will face some serious competition especially from HTC's own rank. The One X is not much more expensive than the One S but provides with more oomph (bigger screen, higher resolution, quad core processor and twice the onboard storage).
