The accessories of the HDC One S is also not just some cheapskate, the white color scheme on these stuff is a good thing. Pretty much perfect on matching the white version of the HDC One S, I guess.


If you are on a budget, then this one is never a bad choice. Its already a steal to get this phone on your hands. It is very cheap yet those specs aren’t present on other handsets with 200USD or above price tag. Plus, you are getting a clone of HTC One S, which is a flagship phone of HTC. Elegant look, competitive specs, all these for a very low price? Think about that.
