HTC desire S

HTC Desire S, which is an updated model of the original Desire, comes with an improved camera, more space for apps and improved communications. But will this be enough to spark the market?

The Desire S has a slightly faster graphics processor, better memory, faster 3G and Wi-Fi support in addition to Android 2.3 platform. The operating system provides a great fillip to the speed of the device – almost doubling the score in the Quadrant benchmarks. There are additional features as well, like improved text selection and better power management.

To the naked eye, the new device isn’t much different from the older one. It actually feels a bit heavier than the original even though it is smaller and lighter than its predecessor. This can be attributed to the design as the chrome grille just above the screen makes the screen look smaller. The absence of the physical buttons and the optical track pad below the screen makes this latest version appear slimmer.

Android has been upgraded from 2.1 to 2.3 and the memory is upgraded to 768 MB RAM compared to the 576 MB in the earlier version. Internal storage also took a raise from 512 MB to 1.1 GB which meant that there is plenty of room for apps.

The chip used in the processor of Desire S, even though runs at the same 1 GHz speed, uses far less power producing less heat. This means that the battery life is much more superior to Desire – giving an approximate 31 hours of MP3 playback which is a jump of 50%.

The changes added spark for the HTC Desire S but the indications are that these may not be enough to warrant a spark in the market. Mobile hub would keep you updated!
