For anyone that's interested - just got a HTC One S - free phone, £16 a month (200 any network/time minutes, 500 texts, unlimited data) on TalkMobile (virtual network run by Carphone Warehouse and powered by Vodafone).

RE: HTC One S - TalkMobile

Seems like a good deal, BA, what do you think of the One S? I think they're a great phone and can be had for small money 2nd hand as the One X is the one most people want, though comparisons between the two indicate there's not much between them in terms of performance, and screen size/resolution of course.

RE: HTC One S - TalkMobile

the network switch is yet to happen, so I've not been able to use it yet (keep checking, waiting for O2 to drop off!).  I don't really use a phone much as I'm at a desk for 10hrs a day, so the low tariff really suits me.

 

I'll do a bit of a mini review once I've had it a while.   From a side-by-side comparison in the shop, the S screen looks a little less vivid than the X, but I found (switching between the same websites) that the S moves a little faster, and oddly the youtube clip I randomly selected looked a bit sharper on the S.

That said, it's VERY big (I may grow to hate it for that).  The X is even bigger tho!  These phones are £400ish Sim Free, and this one (unlocked) is costing me £384, including the minutes/unlimited data for 2 years, so it's really hard to beat - that's 1/2 the price of an iPhone 4S...

For anyone interested in the deal - it's with carphone warehouse (deal of the week, expires tomorrow).
