The HTC Incredible S has got a vacuum packed feel to it, with the chassis adhering to the outline of the battery and innards in a fairly unique way.
The phone feels thin when you first look at it, but when actually holding it in the palm, the thickness becomes very apparent.
The four inch screen is well worked into the black exterior, has the four Android keys (Home, Menu, Back and Search) and touch sensitive options.
The keys are actually easy to press no matter where you palm is positioned, and respond with a very pleasant tactile buzz.
A much cooler trick though - the symbols auto-rotate when you move the phone, despite being only cut-outs to let the light through. HTC has placed the 3.5mm headphone jack back on the top of the Incredible S
The top edge of the Incredible S also sees the lock/power switch - great ergonomics here again, with a simple lift of the index finger (for the right-handed) easily locating it to turn off the phone screen.
The volume rocker key is on the left-hand side of the phone, along with the uncovered microUSB slot for data and charging.
The back of the phone sees the rather large camera sensor in the top left, alongside a blindingly powerful dual LED flash offering. Next to that is the loudspeaker grill, which is really rather loud.
Removing the battery cover is relatively easy thanks to a slot at the bottom of the phone, and in doing so you'll see the microSD slot in the bottom left-hand corner.
