Friday, April 20th, 2012 5:52:37 by

There have been a lot of complaints heard about the Sense 3 that it slows the devices down because of hefty and non-productive animations and graphical gismos added. HTC has addressed the issue in this version. The home screen carousel has been removed, which used to slow its hosts down to snail’s pace.

However, pro-Sense users do not have to worry because the essential features of the app has been kept intact. The animated whether report app is still present in the home screens. Moreover, the screens scroll sideways in a very attractive, 3D flip style. A quick swipe brings the user to the last home screen on the other side.

The operating system comes with all its glory intact and there are number of new pre-installed apps from Google and HTC.

Google offers Gmail, Google Plus, Maps, and Navigation, HTC offers some of its own custom tweaks. The company’s Watch video store serves up movies and TV shows for rent and purchase, while the Music app aggregates Google’s Play music storefront, Slacker Internet radio app, and locally stored tracks.

Audio and Video

One S boasts one of the best cameras available in the market. Both video and picture produce good quality which is acceptable to any point and shoot cameras as well.

In addition to 1080p video with upto 30 frames per second rate, which can be found in almost every premium phone, the picture quality is better than any midrange handset in the market.

The phone possesses a dedicated image processor to take shots quickly and neatly. It is extremely fast on autofocus that locks on the scene in a fraction of a second. The shooting frequency is nearly instantaneous in shot-to-shot speeds. In addition to panorama, face detection, and macro, the One S has a continuous capture mode that snaps shots in extremely fast and instantaneous bursts.
