We had an opportunity to check out the HD7S last night at an AT&T reception, and there weren't a whole lot of surprises. The Windows Phone 7 smartphone is a lot like the HTC HD7 for T-Mobile. The biggest difference is that the HD7S has a slightly better display since it's a Super LCD screen instead of a regular ol' TFT screen. It's certainly something we welcome, since we felt the HD7's display was a bit lackluster compared with other devices on the market, and we definitely noticed that the HD7S's screen was sharper and brighter.
Beyond that, the HD7S features the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera, and built-in kickstand. The overall construction of the phone is very solid, and though the phone is on the larger size, it's relatively thin so that helps make it more manageable. Performance was also smooth during our hands-on time with it.
The HTC HD7S will ship with the latest Windows Phone 7 update, which includes copy-and-paste capabilities, and is expected to hit AT&T stores in the coming weeks.
