However, as a first time user of a smartphone I encountered a several difficulties.
First was the illegibility of the "Mobile Manual" which was enclosed with the phone. It was both too small and also was mangled English. Even with my native understanding of the language I was baffled.
Second, when enlarged we discovered that it was merely a generic description of "A" smartphone not the Dracarys.
Two of the accessories in the Website description were not included, ie the lanyard and mountain clasp.
Accessories which were included but not mentioned - a black perforated stiff case and a sturdy screen protector (I should have looked at YouTube to put this on).
The phone looks smart and is very slender. It takes some care to remove the back to insert the battery due to the on/off button on the top. It is loaded with only some of the apps mentioned in the description, but that is no problem as they can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
The screen can be very sensitive and I mishandled it initially and was confused by icons moving and locating haphazardly. However I discovered a large number of tuition videos on YouTube which have enabled me to organize the icons. I have found out how to do the things generally that a beginner needs. This is provided as part of the package for HTC One S.
Inserting the SIM card and the phone operation has been trouble-free, I just moved the card from my old key type phone and all worked as it should. The only trouble being that I was unfamiliar with how quick it is to dial from the contacts list. Just a few puzzled people called silently.
When loading an Anti-Virus programme I discovered that the phone is rooted and is suitable for a developer.
I have yet to control the camera properly as it does not act exactly like some of the videos I have seen. That is a learning curve for me.
I am delighted with my purchase of this Dracarys One S phone and would recommend it highly to anyone else.
Cons: I have twice had to Turn Off the phone as the screen was not responding.
The perforated case has now become slippery with handling and I am looking for a
