If you wanna count of the HTC One series that we already wrote in this site, you’ll notice that this HTC One S is the third phone from HTC One family. Previously we already wrote HTC One X (the best performance and the largest display), and also HTC One V (the second one).
We aren’t gonna talk about the difference between those three, instead we just talk the deep side of this HTC One S only.
One S comes with touch bar form factor which designed using Super AMOLED Capacitive touchscreen for 4.3 inches. It has 540 x 960 pixels resolution. If we made ranking system for the HTC One series, the HTC One S placed on the second rank. From the best would be like this: HTC One X > HTC One S > HTC One V. It including the performances like the Processor, RAM or Memory, and also the size of the design body and screen.
HTC One S User Manual & Quick Start Guide Resume
The picture with color image below, we captured from the Quick Start guide and the right side with white and black color we got it from the User Guide aka User Manual of HTC One S.
It shown you how the look of HTC One S on the front side with simple explanation about keys and parts. It’s including the power button, the volume, the home, the back, and even USB connector. Same image can be viewed on page 1 of QSG or page 8 of UM / UG of One S.
Wanna do screen shot of you phone in order to memorize your game score or update status of your friends, or just capture the website in your HTC One S?
To do screenshot with hardware combination, it can be done just exactly like other Android Smartphone: Press and Hold the power button (below 1 seconds) and immediately press the Home key. Done. You can open the saved screen shot in Gallery. See the detail instruction about this at page 20 under “Capturing the HTC one S screen” section.
There is a big difference between the term of “Restarting” and “Resetting”. If you wanna restart (sometime also called soft reset aka reboot), you just neet to Turn the power of HTC One Off the turn it on again. Or Press and Hold Power button, then tab restart.
If you wanna do “resetting the HTC One S” you need to perform factory reset. This should be done for the final steps if you couldn’t figure out the problem which happen on your phone (such as stop responding or setting got fuzzed). How to do master reset aka hard aka factory data reset? Go to Notifiaction panel > Tab Settings > Storage > Factory data reset > Reset phone > Erase Everything. Read it on page 180.
Erase evertthing means that your One S would be back to its original with no additional data such as video that you been record, image that you been captured or games and applications that you already installed. All would be gone. So, back up back up first!
