  • Video and image viewing experience are simply not good enough.

  • One of the positive points of the handset is that the performance with the dual-core 1200 MHz processor is very fast.
  • The 1GB RAM is a little less than some of the user’s expectations but it handles small tasks pretty nicely.


Memory & Battery

  • HTC has been redesign messaging app to include many new features.
  • HTC One SV is the first midrange handset to support 4G LTE.

HTC is creating a library of handsets to suit the need of different users first there was the high-end HTC One X, then there was low priced HTC One V and now HTC has come forward with the midrange One SV. There is some definite fault in the device, putting that aside there is no other mid-range device which is support fo 4G network moreover the best of HTC Sense has been included. HTC One SV needs some improvements, but it is a nice option for those who want to get their hands on a 4G device.
