HTC One SV review

 

Repackaged and 4G enabled, is the One SV the ultimate mid-range smartphone?

4G enabled ; Decent battery life ; Good media capabilities ; MicroSD card slot

Cheaper design ; Lesser specs ; Lots of compromises ; Only Android 4.0

The HTC One SV isn't exactly a new handset, more or a reboot of the HTC One S which launched back at MWC 2012.

The HTC One SV is a mid-range Android smartphone - with all new 4G skills

4G ; Good battery ; Cool style

Low resolution screen ; Average camera for the money ; Doesn't make full use of 4G

The HTC One SV isn't a bad phone, but EE's pricing is quite expensive and it's outclassed by handsets just £30 more. Limited specs, low res display and

Nice looking design, 4G, microSD card slot, battery life

Low resolution display, camera performance not great, can be slippery, uncomfortable against the ear, EE pricing makes it expensive

There are always going to be compromises in the mid-range. The HTC One SV makes some to be more affordable which we can live with: it’s powerful enough for daily activities and the screen resolution, although lacking the wow factor, is enough for most...

HTC One SV review

 

While the generals of the Android army get all the glory, behind the likes of the Galaxy SIII , Sony Xperia Z and imminent HTC One there are legions of respectable but slightly less powerful phones swelling the ranks. The HTC One SV is just such a thing.

Solid, if unspectacular, performance, Battery outlasts similar handsets, Fair for the price

Sparse 4G coverage, Stuttery video, Runs older version of Android

HTC One SV review

 

The smaller footprint means the One SV is easy to hold and use single-handedly and the screen is almost the perfect width. It's not a stretch for your thumb to touch all corners of the screen, which can be an issue on larger devices. Further, we love...

The HTC One SV is a mid-range Android phone that has a comfortable design, 4G capabilities and reasonably good battery life. However, the low resolution screen and mediocre camera make it overpriced. A good but far from great smartphone.

HTC One SV Review: In Depth

 

HTC fans now have two reasons to consider EE as their new network of choice with the arrival of the HTC One SV: the Taiwanese company's second 4G-friendly foray into the UK smartphone market. The One…

Good design ; Snappy user experience ; Offers 4G in a more affordable package

Flimsy hardware controls ; Screen res should have been higher ; 4G usage destroys battery life

HTC has done a great job at pitching the One SV as a true mid-range device. It does lack in certain departments, mainly the display and camera, but it excels in others. Not only is it a superbly built device, it comes with the best version of Sense...
