    Default My One S dilemma

    This definitely falls into the category of first-world problems... I now have two One S phones - however, the new one is that legendary T-mobile US Black One S, which I recently won. I just got it today and it looks purdy:

    The black One S is reaaally good looking, but I don't need two phones though - which has me wondering - I keep going back and forth now - do I sell the black one, or do I keep the really sexy black one and sell my regular blue One S used? What would you do?

    definitly keep the black one. Its more unique and looks really good.

    Dude, that phone looks good. If you were to sell it, how much would you sell it for?

    Probably would do Best Offer, with some minimum (likely starting with a 3...) in my head. But I'd also throw in a bunch of OEM accessories I was also given, so it would be a good package. (I'd bundle the accessories if I sold the used one too).

    Yep, that's a first world problem.

    Keep the black one sell the used one with the accessories.

    Is the black one a special version? If so, sell it & make cash. Both phones are same internally and only look different....

    Think I am leaning towards keeping the black and selling the one I am using now...probably will decide for sure later next week after I return from a trip.

    I'd be interested in either to perpetuate my experiment on T-Mobile. I'm talking to a guy switching to Verizon about trading my RAZR for his GSII, but I'd rather have the One S....

    Am back from my trip, and I decided to sell the new black one, the hassle of setting everything back up is not worth it to me. Will post it by the weekend.

    just a random question about the One S in general. How do you like the phone? does it run nice for you? Many people are discussing smaller Android devices and this phone has always been one that people suggest as a good option. How do you feel it measures up for the long term and what would be the pros and cons of the smaller One S?

    I like the phone a lot - it is plenty fast, have not experienced any lags, and runs all my apps just fine. I did experience some finickiness regarding holding a signal, but since the latest OTA, I have not had any problems with that at all. The camera takes great looking on the fly photos. Even after almost six months, it still seems like it's close to top of the line on the internals, in everyday use terms. And it will get Jellybean so it should continue to function well for quite awhile. Sense as it is now runs well and doesn't detract from the Android experience. While the screen is not spec'd as well as the One X, it still has great color and clarity. I have smallish hands and I think this is the perfect size for me. I generally get through the day with about 35-40% battery left, with moderate use. Do wish it had more storage, but I knew that going in so I can't complain!

    Pros:
    Top of the line hardware and internals (save for the screen)
    Very smooth in operations, no lag
    Good form factor - feels good in hand
    Great camera
    Definitely getting Jellybean - will stay pretty current for awhile

    Cons:
    Screen not as highly spec'd as One X (but not bothersome in daily use to me)
    No expandable storage

    I can echo everything popartist wrote. All things considered, I believe the One S is the best phone on the market, at any price point on any carrier. Mostly because I think the size is just perfect (build quality and feel in hand go a long way in this). It'll be even better once JB comes out on it.

    I love my One S! I will have to put it aside for a bit though - I am being sent an international unlocked Windows Phone 8X to put through its paces, especially the camera - as it is very similarly spec'd (it does have a better screen, and NFC in this international version) , the transition probably won't be too jarring (especially as T-Mo has the 1900 band up and going on HSPA+ here in NYC) and I am excited about it. But I suspect I will return to my One S for the Android ecosystem and Jellybean goodness (I am liking Windows 8 though in my new Surface RT). We shall see!
