Reviews for the HTC Windows Phone 8S

86% Review HTC Windows Phone 8S Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Entry-level Windows. A dual-core processor, 512 MB RAM and a 4-inch screen for 260 Euros (~$346). In cooperation with HTC Microsoft tries to pull smartphone users away from the Android and iOS camp. But is Windows Phone 8 with weaker hardware still fast enough and competitive?
