Went down to my local T-Mo store and bought the first One S this morning.
My wife and I have an MT4G and a G2, we have no problems with great service at my house. Got the One home, and it would not get a signal. AT ALL. BIG X.
I had to use wi-fi calling to get it to work.
Downloading one app at a time, it got hot. Not warm. It got I-don’t-want-to-hold-it-anymore HOT. I was afraid to leave it on the charger, it got so hot. And the full charge barely lasted 2 hours of standby.
So I obviously had a bad one. Took it back to the store, manager happily swaps it out. Take the next one out of its box, and the SIM card cover will not close. Its loose, we both try to get it to fit back right, but its just messed up. Won’t close at all. And the new one WON’T POWER UP.
So, out of two One S, BOTH were ****.
At that point, I had enough and got my money back.
Very disappointing. HTC apparently has some serious QC issues.
Sorry if this isn't what you all wanted to hear. Anyone else having issues?
I picked it up this morning too. It started downloading all my apps from the PLAY store and didn't heat up. Although when I was on the phone talking and my apps were still downloading it became a little hot. Not too hot to put it down, but hot enought that it made me question it. I'm going to see how the heat issue goes. But so far so good with this phone. The only issue I have is that it won't let me put my Google Voice as my main voicemail application. Sorry you had a bad experience with this phone. Any idea what phone you'll pick up instead?
I still want a One S. But I think I'll let other people work out the issues with this one, I'll stick with my G2 for a bit. I'll get a One S from a later batch. I had issues with the Nexus One, too. But my G2 was perfect out-of-the-box.
As much of an HTC fan as I am, being a first-adopter for HTC phones has been hit-or-miss for me.
Mine does get a little hot but not a problem. Network connectivity is good for me but wifi has some issues. See other post.
Mine also gets hot, but not often or consistently. I had a Samsung Vibrant prior to the One S and never had a problem with heat before. The only other problem I am having with the One S is that I have lost my network service a few times and it doesn't come back without a restart. The phone indicates that service was lost because the radio has been turned off. I live in a major metro area, so there should be ample coverage.
Keep in mind that with WiFi calling enabled as the default of preferred over cell, it disables the radio on purpose to save power.
This phone has been the best I've ever owned so far. Every issue I've found has been really minor, and I'm sure HTC will resolve them with a software update within 3 months. I went through 3 or more Moto Droids in the first week of ownership. Maybe one of your apps from your old phone was causing a conflict?
Also don't forget this is a much faster phone 1.5 ghz dual core and very intensive processor.
So with a few tasks running it may get warm and with the casing being aluminum it will get warm in your hand. That is to be expected.
Should not get hot like a cup of coffee but warm is normal.
My phone doesn't have heat issues but it has every signal issue possible.
My phone got warm from a charge (natural) and from heavy use... also natural. Keep in mind this is an aluminum case... thus heat transfer will be greater than with a plastic case. I see no quality control issues with this phone. I have used mine since the 25th.
where you switching from wifi to tower by any chance? I have noticed this. Glad there is a button to turn radio back on unlike my old Motorola defy which had the same data switching issues. On that phone you MUST restart the phone.
mine is running incredibly hot as well with a D30 platic case. it is having those wifi connection problems as well, and now the power button will not work after owning it for 2 days. i'll be replacing it tomorrow, if i get another and it does not work to my expectations i'll be switching my family plan to another carrier
