Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB Console White Review


Microsoft's Xbox One S has made its way to Indian shores. The console boasts of an interesting feature set, some exciting exclusives and an attractive form factor. Is it too late to the party?

Gorgeous design and form factor ; Integrated power brick ; Can be propped up vertically with a stand ; Game Pass and backwards compatibility are good services ; Dolby Atmos, HDR and 4K Blu-ray playback support ; Good library of exclusives

Controller still uses 2 AA batteries ; Third party games run better on the PS4 ; Launched a year after its official global launch ; Xbox One X is around the corner ; White gets dirty easily

One can’t ignore the fact that the console is a year late to launch in India, which means that if you wanted an Xbox One S, then you probably already got it through other sources. If you are looking to buy one, you can get it cheaper in the grey market...

Microsoft Xbox One S review


A worthy 4K rival to Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro

You favourite games in pin-sharp detail ; The cheapest 4K Blu-ray player you can buy ; Sleek new design, sans power brick

PS4 still has the better exclusives ; Controller not rechargeable as standard

The console the Xbox One should have been at launch. Still, this One S mighty fine in its own right.

Xbox One S review


Xbox One S sets a new high point in console development

Vastly reduced physical footprint ; 4K & HDR streaming ; HDR gaming ; Xbox platform is steadily improving

Needs adapter for Kinect ; 4K gaming limited to upscaling

Xbox One S is the pinnacle of what Microsoft set out to create with the original Xbox One. As the new de facto Xbox, the One S is everything a game console should be: sleek, powerful and well-stocked. It's not quite at Xbox One X's level in terms of...

Xbox One S review: Great console and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, what else?


It's somewhat strange that, in just three years, what were described as the "next generation" are now considered standard and commonplace, while a new generation of games consoles is already starting to emerge. There's no doubt in our minds that the...

A slimmer, smarter version of the Xbox One, capable of playing 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays with HDR, has 4K Netflix support, HDR gaming, upscales all output to 2160p, great new wireless controller, no power brick

Gaming is not improved by much so few reasons to upgrade bar 4K video, needs extra 4K app support from the likes of Amazon, no native Kinect port

There's no doubt in our minds that the Xbox One S is a much more capable machine than its predecessor. It is physically more attractive, comes jam packed with new features and offers a smoother, more responsive experience. However, whether that will...

Xbox One S review: A great Ultra HD Blu-ray player for gamers


If you're a gamer as well as a home theater enthusiasts, Microsoft's game console is also an exceptionally good Ultra HD Blu-ray player.

Nearly flawless as an Ultra HD Blu-ray player (in terms of video quality, that is) ; Can stream 4K video from the internet ; HDMI input for connecting and controlling a set-top box

Conventional media remote control costs extra ; Loads discs slower than dedicated UHD Blu-ray players

You’ll find a host of apps and services at the Xbox store, including ones for all the big video-streaming players such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and YouTube. Games? Come on, this is an Xbox. The Samsung and Panasonic have a couple of titles at most,...

Microsoft Xbox One S review


The Xbox One S is more than a console – it's a great Ultra HD Blu-Ray player.

Slick new look ; Strong input/output selection ; Ultra HD Blu-ray support ; Enhanced compatibility with Windows 10 ; Attractive pricing

Not as small as expected ; Hardware still slower than PlayStation 4 ; Cortana is disappointing

Most gamers are unlikely to find the Xbox One S more appealing that it was before. It remains less powerful than its rival at Sony. Aside from its smaller footprint – which, as mentioned, is less impressive than hinted during its reveal – there’s...
