    The HTC Desire S is a smartphone that runs the Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) operating system. The good-looking and easy-to-operate Desire S has 1.1GB ROM, 768 MB RAM internal memory and the card slot can be expanded up to 32 GB. The internal memory has been doubled from its predecessor. It has also an impressive feature like Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chipset, with 1 GHz Scorpion processor and Adreno 205 graphics. HTC's smartphone is slightly lighter than its predecessor and the plus side to Desire S is the additional front-face camera for videos and self-portrait with 0.3 megapixels VGA resolution. The inclusion of front-face camera allows making 3G calls. It has 5 megapixels, Autofocus and LED flash camera. There are also built-in effects in the camera for better and colourful portraits. The only problem with the camera is the lack of camera key. The modish look of Desire S is available in black and red colours. And the screen is the same as HTC Desire with 480x800 pixels. The super LCD touchscreen with 16M colours gives a good quality of images and a great appearance of the screen. And the screen is protected by the Gorilla Glass. HTC is known in producing unibody model. This makes Desire S stronger and lighter. Plus HTC is worthy of trust for a solidly build smartphone. A notable drawback is the Desire S screen, which is barely legible under bright sunlight. Surfing the web on Desire S is hassle-free, especially with Adobe flash preinstalled. That software alone makes many sites work load properly on the phone. The latest Facebook app is preinstalled which let you post and enable to chat with your friends and Twitter app for Android is preinstalled too. Onboard A-GPS helps the Desire S pinpoint your current location, even if normal GPS signal coverage is weak. Talk time for Desire S lasts up to 9hours and 50 minutes for 2G and 7hours and 10 minutes for 3G. Battery life is impressive as it improves by 1450mAh from 1400mAh of its predecessor. Expect 2-days battery life on normal use and with 3G and Wi-Fi constantly on, battery life can last a day.
