HTC has introduced another awesome looking mobile phone in market. The new member of HTC family has the latest series of Desire SV in it. The new Desire has been launched finally but is available in Singapore and Australia at present. The very first thing that comes into mind when we see this new phone is that the mobile companies are taking the features like dual-sim property seriously. HTC Desire SV is an example of a high profile handset launched with this feature. The SV is a dual sim (GSM=GSM) mobile phone with a very efficient looking configuration on paper. The real experience can only be felt by using this newly launched handset from HTC.
The hardware – Building blocks of the phone
The new HTC Desire SV is a very decent looking handset with a glossy front view in addition to an easy-to-use rubberised panel at the rear end. The body of this handset is mostly made up of plastic but still it manages to give a solid and sturdy look when in use. The build of this handset is such that it ceases any chance of scratches on the screen or on the rear panel. For the purpose of connectivity, it has a microUSB port at the bottom in addition to a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top. The volume controller and the power buttons are very well placed and shaped which makes it very easy for the users to find and use these buttons even in darkness.
Advantages and disadvantages – A quick look!
The screen appears to be a bit reflecting, which can be an issue for the users. It can be difficult to use in sunlight or ambient light. The microSD card slot and the dual sim slot are present inside the rear panel. One of the advantages that the Desire SV has over the other available handsets at the same cost is that both the sim cards are active at the same time. This facilty is unavailable in many of the handsets which means that you are free to send or receive messages and calls from both the sim card simultaneously.
The handset is powered by the OS from Android, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 and also Sense 4.1. The OS should also be upgragadable to Jelly Bean, once HTC takes the initaitative of upgradation of its handset. In the criteria of touch screen phones, the sensitivity of the phone is quite good. But, to some extent the quality of screen is somewhat not upto the mark. The low resolution of the screen makes the pixel grid noticeable to a certain extent when some background is applied.
Today phones are not just meant for talking. They are much more. You can watch videos, listen to songs, play games and do stuffs that you can’t even imagine. To satisy all this requirement of yours, this handset from HTC comes with a 4GB card which can be expanded uptil 32 GB. All in all, this is a great handset from HTC and you need not think twice before rushing to the market to get one for yourself.
