HTC Incredible S

The Good Smooth user interface; well-designed widgets; interesting rubberised back cover.

The Bad Slightly older version of Android misses out on some bug fixes and speed improvements.

The Bottom Line The HTC Incredible S smart phone has an innovative appearance and tonnes of features. But, with a slightly dated version of Android and a single-core processor, the Incredible S feels merely credible compared to some of its mind-bending competition.
