HTC ONE SV
The One SV inherits some design traits from HTC’s higher-end models such as the curved edges, tapered back and polycarbonate chassis. A metal ring goes around the smartphone’s edges, giving it a more premium feel. Build quality is good, and the heft of the device (122g) creates a solid feel.
On the front face, you will find a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The earpiece grille is located at the top, while you get three capacitive navigation buttons (back, home, menu) at the bottom. A 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera sits to the right.
The One SV ships with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 4+, the latter of which sports a couple of enhanced features such as redesigned virtual keyboard, revamped camera user interface, and a Power Saver mode.
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and a removable 1,800mAh battery (power-users will find this feature quite handy). The micro-SIM and micro-SD card slots are found underneath the back cover. Besides the internal storage capacity of 8GB, HTC further enhances the storage proposition with 25GB of Dropbox cloud storage capacity, to the tune of two years’ worth.
