HTC Desire SV - Expert Reviews

Introduction

The war of Smartphone's continues with the HTC powering in with the HTC Desire SV. Sony with Xperia series, Samsung with Galaxy Premier while Note 2 reigning in its own new segment of Phablets. It's raining Smartphone's at the moment and so many devices being fired at the customers from every direction. But we aren't exactly complaining are we. HTC Desire SV is yet another attractive looking device that comes with the dual SIM facility allowing the user to keep two SIM's in a single device. The screen size of 4.3 inch is pretty big although with today's standard's, its normal. The screen is Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen and is powered by the HTC sense UI technology like all of the premier HTC handsets. The bluetooth is version 4.0 allowing the user to connect with other devices and exchange data at a quick pace. Camera is as good as 8 megapixels while Wi-Fi is also provided along with Wi-Fi hot spot. Battery is not out of this world but 1620 mAh is still decent. So with so many features, what could possibly be the drawback with the device. As mentioned above battery could have been slightly more powerful while the complete absence of a secondary camera also is a letdown. Although the operating system is Android Ice cream sandwich, it is not Jelly Bean which is the latest from Android, and one can't help but think that the same could have been provided. Never the less, the upgrade for the same can be provided. For now the device looks sharp enough to attract customers who love their Smartphone's.

Operating system and UI

HTC Desire SV has a 4.3 inch screen that is powered by the HTC sense UI along with the super LCD2 capacitive technology. The screen works at a pixel density of 217 ppi and gives a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels along with 16 million colors.

Other Features

HTC Desire SV has a music player that is powered by the Bears Audio sound enhancement feature and makes sure that the user can listen to all his or her favourite songs that are compatible with the formats MP3, eAAC+, WMA and WAV player. The video player on the other supports MP4, H.263, H.264 and WMV player. The music can be heard by the user through the loudspeakers or through the earphones that can be attached to the device with the help of a 3.5 mm jack.

Camera

HTC Desire SV has a 8 megapixel camera that works at a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels and lets the user click pictures with complete clarity. The auto focus feature allows the user to click pictures with complete accuracy and precision even when the hands of the user are shaky and not stable. The LED flash provides enough brightness so that the pictures clicked are never too dull. Other features include Geo-Tagging and Touch Focus. There is no provision for a secondary camera.

Connectivity

HTC Desire SV comes with the Wi-Fi facility that ensures that the user can browse through the desired web sites like Facebook and Twitter or even download data like games, images, videos and songs. Wi-Fi hot spot is also provided.

Memory

HTC Desire SV offers an internal storage capacity of 4 GB which ensures that lots of data can be stored on the device but in case it is not enough the user can also expand the memory up to 32 GB with the help of a microSD card slot. The 768 MB RAM ensures that the user can access all the resources of the system at a fast pace.

Other Features

HTC Desire SV offers tonnes of games and apps while the Android Ice cream Sandwich operating system would provide a great platform for the user to download even more such apps with a large domain to choose from.

Battery

HTC Desire SV has a 1620 mAh standard lithium ion battery which is decent but more was expected in this department with the device offering so many impact features that the battery is bound to be consumed more.

Connectivity

HTC Desire SV has the GPRS and EDGE facility which ensures that desired location can kept in check. The Bluetooth 4.0 feature lets the user send or receive data to or from other devices while the USB port provides the same facility but through the USB cable. The user can also charge the device through the same procedure. The Wi-Fi facility allows the user to access the web and download data or access the desired websites including checking mails.

Other Features

HTC Desire SV when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Premier has a smaller screen with the former featuring a 4.3 inch screen while the latter 4.65 inch. Both the devices has a 8 megapixel camera but the HTC Desire SV does not have a secondary camera while the Samsung Galaxy Premier has a 1.9 megapixel secondary camera. Operating system is also superior with Samsung Galaxy Premier with Android Jelly bean operating system whereas HTC Desire SV features the Android Ice cream sandwich operating system. Battery is more powerful in Samsung Galaxy Premier whereas the internal memory is also more as compared to HTC Desire SV. Also Samsung Galaxy has more RAM than HTC Desire SV and is also NFC capable which the HTC Desire SV is not.

Other Features

HTC is powering through again with HTC Desire SV. The device features a 4.3 inch screen and has a 8 megapixel camera. The device is also priced economically and one wonder's what could possibly go wrong with the device. Well, with all these features to be give  out at such a price, some features had to be cut out. The device has no secondary camera and is not NFC enabled. The battery is not as good as a device of its calibre should have been. Operating system is Ice Cream Sandwich and not Android jelly bean, although a upgrade should be round the corner. The device looks attractive but can it compete with other heavy weights like Samsung Galaxy Premier and the xperia Series, only time will tell.
