I have used in the past extensively HTC Titan I and II which is pre Windows 8 (7.5) and I was surprised it has become more buttery smooth now even on this phone which is way underrated. Windows Phone is now (early-mid 2013) the third-leading mobile phone platform, more than tripling its market share year-over-year. One recent report I read Android and iOS are ahead in games with 162.1 and 37.4 million shipments in 1Q13 and Windows phone came in 7 million. This is more than double from previous year.
Overall though this phone is cheaper compared to other phones in an unlocked versions, the 4GB has a crippling effect in all, and may turn out to be an issue in the long run once app space grows. Still giving 4 stars as it cannot be ruled out for a Windows 8 enthusiast.
I use it for email, web, NY Times app, taking and storing photos, checking weather forecasts, etc. For all of these features it is great. I love that I have consolidated my phone contacts with my email contacts. If you want to install many additional apps then this is probably not the phone for you.
No problems with speed or battery usage for me. Especially compared to my partner's iPhone.
If buying a Windows phone now would recommend Nokia Lumia 635 using WP8.1. Much better than the HTC 8S and cheaper too
I bought just for business but I couldn't resist to use it for even more its really perfect
