HTC Incredible S Feedback
- The phone performs flawlessly even when heavy multitasking is done.the hardware under this awesome looking phone never fails to deliver.
- Android OS +HTC Sense UI are the best experience you can get on an android.
- Unlike the HTC Desire HD the phone has a perfect screen size of 4 inches which makes it comfortable in pocket and while holding.
- The phone has some metallic clips beneath the battery cover, which most probably will be used for inductive charging technology (through which which you could be able to charge your phone wirelessly by just keeping it over and inductive charging surface.)
- This phone has the same GPU as the Xperia play. This means that if in the future the playstation app is freely available for all phones then your HTC Incredible S would be a Playstation certified phone and would run that app seamlessly.
