Review: HTC One SV

The HTC One SV is a new mid-range smartphone that launched in January 16th.

This gorgeous mobile handset’s face is made of a single sheet of glass that covers the display and three capacitive navigation buttons. The back of the handset is covered by smooth plastic with a soft-touch rubbery feel that provides nice grip in the hands.

The flame colored mobilephone combines two different shades of red, a lighter red with an orange hue on the back and a deeper red around the edges. The icons for the capacitive buttons beneath the display are also in red color.



Like all other HTC phones, the One SV too is a very solid handset with good build quality.  Though, the 4.3-inch screen on the One SV is not that terrific like the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S IV,  it’s a great display for a mid-range handset. The handset promises a crisp and bright display.

The 1,800 mAh battery on board guarantees a full day of performance with moderate usage, which includes a few voice calls, plenty app usage, Web browsing, e-mail checking and some music streaming.

HTC One SV comes with 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.The other key specs include Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.1, and a 5-megapixel camera powered by HTC’s dedicated ImageChip.


The HTC One SV has a sleek and unique design and it packs the best specs list available in the mid-range class. But unfortunately, the handset delivers an average performance. Moreover, the handset lacks marketing support and extensive carrier support.
