The HTC One S is fairly narrow, especially compared to some other new smartphones, and fits well in your hand.

The back of the HTC One S is very attractive with the Gradient Blue color scheme. The metal back color looks great in person and this photo doesn't do it justic. You will also see a cool blue color ring around the camera lens and Beats Audio branding towards the bottom.

There is a small LED flash adjacent to the camera. The upper portion of the back is removable and reveals the microSIM card slot. There is no removable storage or battery though.

This icon shows that WiFi Calling is supported on the HTC One S. This is a handy feature if you have a weak cell signal.

My grandma celebrated her 89th birthday so I capture a moment at the dinner with the HTC One S. As you can see she is a huge Mariners baseball fan.
