This is Brian Bennett for CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the HTC One S for T-Mobile.
First, let me say that if you're a loyal T-Mobile subscriber and if aching for truly tempting smart phone, this device could be exactly what you've been holding out for and only a 1/3rd of an inch thick, the HTC One s is very thin.
In fact T-Mobile said it's the thinnest smart phone that's ever sold.
It's also carved from a single block of anodized aluminum.
Feels very sturdy despite of trimmed size and looks great supporting what HTC called a gradient blue color scheme.
It's 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD screen is very attractive as well and makes colors popped and blacks nice and dark.
On back is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash that uses HTC's new image-sense camera technology.
That's really just a fancy way of saying it's focus is fast, snap pictures almost instantly and both the host of flick features in scene modes.
For example, along with the usual things like face detection, auto focus and panorama, there's a continuous shot mode and you can even snap fill for a shooting video.
The HTC One S runs zippy 1.5 Gigahertz, Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU.
You also get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich plus HTC's new sense for user interface.
On front is a unique 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD screen.
Below the screen are 3 Android buttons for back home and recent applications.
There's a full front facing camera, the side hold a micro USB port controls for volume, power and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
You pay a price for the HTC One's slim size though.
Namely, there's no SD card slot for removable battery.
The HTC One S cost $1.99 on T-Mobile.
