About HTC Windows Phone 8S

HTC Windows Phone 8S offers a unique alternative to other android and iphones. The bright and vivid colour options brings the handset on par with the iPhone and Nokia Lumia in terms of sleek and effective design. In particular consumers can enjoy the light weight and comfortable design and feel. Unfortunately the handset is not competitive in terms of the camera feature. There is no front facing camera, therefore consumers are unable to make video calls. The sole camera on the handset is not the best quailty either.
