Some of HTC’s best features can be seen in the new HTC One SV. Can this mid-range handset deliver enough? So read the full review to find out.


The description of HTC One SV includes:

  • Dual-core 1200 MHz processor
  • Android 0.4 operating system as well as HTC Sense 4.1
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage together with an expansion slot for external memory
  • 128mm length; 9mm width and 9.2mm thickness
  • A display of 3 inches and 480 x 800 pixels display resolution
  • It weighs 122g
  • Price of $291.66


  • The design of the handset is very sleek and smart but there is nothing unique about it.
  • Moreover, the front houses three buttons for the Back, Home and Menu functions.
  • The edges are curved which make it very comfortable for use.
  • The back plate also has a slight curve.
  • Additionally, there is a removable backplate with the HTC logo is embossed at the centre of it.
  • Beneath the back plate, there is a slot for SIM.
  • There is a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.
  • On the left edge, there is a micro-USB port and a microSD card slot.





  • The 4.3-inch display is not very impressive.
  • Moreover, the 480 x 800 pixels of display resolution is extremely grainy.
  • The pixels are identifiable throughout the use.
  • Video and image viewing experience are simply not good enough.
  • There is no clarity of text.


  • On the back, there is a 5-megapixel camera.
  • The snapshot quality is average during the day time, but at night it is below average.
  • You can take 30 quick fire shots within a few seconds, but this feature is affected because the shots are grainy.
  • Moreover, you can record video at 1080p, which is the only plus point of the camera.


  • 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

  • There is 8GB of built-in storage. But, you can increase it by the addition of a microSD card.
  • The 1800mAh battery will get you through a day of average use but you can’t expect a lot from this battery.


  • The handset has HTC’s trademark skin.
  • It runs Android 4.0 and the best of HTC Sense.
  • HTC has been redesign messaging app to include many new features.
  • HTC One SV is the first midrange handset to support 4G LTE.
  • The features of DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC are also included.


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.
