Those of you who are dedicated fans of the Windows operating system are going to love this quick and stylish little device, and this very well could be the phone that “reforms” Android operating system fanatics as well. In September 2012, the HTC corporation announced that they would be releasing the Windows Phone 8S and they did so just one month later. Whether you are in an area with 2G or 3G coverage, this phone has got you covered.
Those of you who just love choices (ladies), this phone is guaranteed to please. Available in a variety of colours such as High-Rise Grey, Domino, Red and Ocean Blue, you are likely to find one perfect for you.

At a glance, you should be happy to know that this phone comes standard with 4GB of storage, which can be externally increased to 32GB. You will also be pleased with the quite adequate 5MP camera featuring a plethora of goodies that make it even more functional.
If you have read any other reviews about this phone, then you have surely heard its design compared to the Nokia Lumia design. Is this a deal breaker; no, at least it shouldn’t be. The resemblance can be placed aside when you take into consideration the overall look of this phone. The technical details show us the size is 120.5 x 63 x 10.3 mm. The overall weight of this device is comes in at a very light 113g. The durability of this device is further enhanced through the inclusion of the latest glass technology offered by “Corning Gorilla Glass” which adorns the 4.0 inch screen. Beside a tough outer shell, the screen on this device also offers a high resolution display to please even the most discerning tastes. Ultimately, this is a very well designed phone. It is comfortable, stylish and durable.
As we touched on briefly above, this phone is equipped with a 5MP camera. The technology I alluded to earlier includes geo-tagging, touch focus and face recognition. If you are dead set on using a “face time” like feature, then this phone is now for you, however, it is more than adequate for most consumers at its’ generous price point. For the more tech savvy readers, here are some of the specs. This is of course a Windows 8 based smartphone and comes with Dual-core 1 GHz Krait processer. This phone also comes with 512 MB RAM and an internal storage capacity of 4 GB, and if that isn’t enough, you can upgrade to 32GB of storage. When comparing this device to industry competitors, it stacks up very well and the performance of this little device isn’t lacking either.
All in all, this is a wonderfully priced phone offers a number of features that have come to be expected from the smart phone community. If you are looking for a very capable and rather stylish device that won’t break the bank, then I highly recommend taking a closer look at this device.
