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.
