Better display

The HD7S is a lot like the HTC HD7 on T-Mobile, except it features a sharper 4.3-inch Super LCD. The upgraded screen offers a sharper and more vibrant picture, with richer colors.

Design

The rest of the smartphone's design is very much the same as the HD7. It's a larger and heavier handset at 4.8 inches tall by 2.7 inches wide by 0.4 inch thick and weighs 5.7 ounces but has a solid construction.

Kickstand

There is a built-in kickstand on back that allows you to place the phone on a flat surface to watch videos hands-free. It also comes in handy if you're using the smartphone as an alarm clock or digital picture frame.

Picture quality

Unfortunately, picture quality wasn't very impressive, as images looked flat and dull with washed-out colors.
