Rated 5 out of 5Â by TheRza1387 Best phone I ever had. (Or will have)
I love it. When I first seen it, it was love at first sight. It was between iphone5 and galaxy s3 and I went with htc. This is a phone for music lovers. Photographers. Gamers. Travelers. It has everything. I got the red to match my beats audio stuff. Mix this phone with beats products and prepare to feel music rock your very soul. Love it love it love it. Haven't put it down 2 months after I got it. Thank you.

This phone literally replaced my iPod as far as the apps, camera clarity and sound. I haven't had any major problems and I love it that I can listen to the radio on it. enjoy the long battery life to keep me from having to charge throughout the day. I think I will keep this phone forever. :) its like a mini computer. I have had a smartphone before but not like this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FreddyURS Best phone I've had
This is a great phone. fast, great sound/call quality, plenty of memory, simple to use. The camera isn't as spectacular as advertised espicially with motion pictures but does take decent pictures. Battery life could be a bit better although I am a heavy user so I'm guessing the average person can get by a day on one charge.
Another con: The phone is not accepting my square register credit card reader.
I wish it shipped with Jelly Bean, but hopefully HTC gives us an update.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SmoothGuy85 An amazing HTC device and overall phone
This is a good inexpensive phone that has great features, and it is easy to process. I have had this phone for a week and can not put it down. I love the use and ability to access any thing you want in just seconds. Currently where I live the 4G has not arrived yet, but as soon as does, I am sure I will love it even more.

When first setting my eyes on the One SV it was love at first sight! The phone is lighter and thinner than the specs would lead you to believe. The One SV offers enough power and has the latest features, such as NFC and 4G LTE, to take full advantage of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Great phone if your looking for a solid, good looking midrange phone at an affordable price.

This is a great phone. Nice clean and clear video recording in 1080P (1920x1080). Pictures come out great. Plays a video file that's not even listed right out of the box, WebM which is the new format that youtube uses. NFC chip is a nice feature, but have yet to use it. Loved a few of the pre-installed apps like flashlight with 3 mode brightness, mirror, movie editor and movie studio. Even plays games such as gta 3, Need for speed Shift, Need for speed Hot Pursuit, Sonic the hedgehog 4 Episode 1 & 2, Sonic CD at a very good frame rate 58 to 60 FPS which is pretty decent seeing how all these games are graphic intensive they play very well with no lag at all.

This is my third HTC and by far my favorite! The screen size is perfect and the response time is wonderful! I love the overall design choices that were put into this device even tho its a mid range, it looks and acts like other companies high end devices.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MiaLynn SD Card
I like the phone but why can't I put apps on the memory card. The biggest problem I have with this phone is it has no space. The meomory is just way to small to keep anything. My previous phone allowed me to store applications on the memory card to alleviate space on the phone's memory. Does this phone do that? If so how??

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Prince977 The Gold Standard of Android and iPhone
Good Camera. the battery is excellent if you don't frequently use the internet, but even with your 3G or 4G on, it's still a good battery. The Screen is brilliant; turn on your automatic brightness and you don't have to ever worry. It lights up when there's sunlight, and dims when it's dark. The storage is sufficient, there have been moments when I have to delete some apps to make room for others, but then again, I download a plethora of apps. The stock keyboard and interface is so great that you'll find yourself scoffing at people that do have to replace theirs. This phone makes you feel like you're at the top of your game. Because, now, you are.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Skeeter HTC Setting the Standard of Smartphones
I have kept pace with the evolution of mobile phones, originally loving the Palm Treo. First Motorola Android plagued with glitches. Upgraded to HTC, which was relatively unheard of. Had snapdragon processor 8mp cam, ran my Rhapsody playlists flawlessly. Sick of Verizon's costs and, now, limited data, bought HTC One SV. 4G, and wifi, awesome. Every app and videos run flawlessly. Videos don't even slow to buffer, and screen large and clear for viewing. Can't say enough about this phone. My biggest issue with it right now is the unavailability of cases, covers etc. Added an app to maximize battery life that improved that, also an app to move apps, etc to micro sdhc. On original HTC I had a heavy duty battery with a back cover to accommodate it. Would love to see that with this one. HTC One other model covers will not work on this phone. Dimensions are very different. Almost could put away tablet with this phone. Love it! But desperately want cases available to protect it! Buy! Less than half thr price of iPhone5, and prefer the HTC hands down. Oh, easy transfer of old phones data & contacts! Cool!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KieranSprouse HTC One SV Review
Ok so here is HTC's latest mid-range android device, the One SV. The SV is a mix between the One S and One V. Now, I have never used either of these phones so I haven't a clue what they are like, though I have had the One SV for about a week now so this is my review.
The One SV has a very 'sleek' design, it kinda has a pebble finish and is very curvy (seriously, try and find a sharp edge). Anyway, it is very simple, no silly placements and all very easy to use. The design is good and the phone feels thin and light in the hand, but quite wide also. It is nice to hold.
It feels sturdy and strong and has a removable back cover to change batteries and access the Micro SIM and Micro SD slots.
The One SV does not have a high end display by any means, however, it isn't to shabby. At a screen size of 4.3" it is a good size - big screen but not 'too' big. In my opinion the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3 (after experience) felt a bit odd to hold, the screen was so big it didn't feel natural and me with my smaller hands had to stretch to reach the top corners. However, the One SV has a good sized screen which feels comfortable yet big enough for a phone. Big enough for videos and gaming etc. (And good for smaller handed people!) :D
The screen resolution is very mid-range however, with only a resolution of 480x800 it isn't as 'Crystal Clear' as phones such as the Xperia T which rock a 1280x780 resolution. The pixel density is only 217 Pixels-per inch (PPI) and so isn't great either. But this isn't too much of a problem, it is very clear and quite sharp. Don't be put off by the figures. (Not to say it is as good as higher resolution phones though.)
With a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked to 1.2GHz and with duel core technology, the SV is lightening quick. No lag between menus necessarily, (even less so on custom launchers) and can run the vast majority of Apps and Games you through at it really well. It has 1GB of RAM also which is pretty much a high end standard except the new HTC One and Galaxy S4 which both have 2GB but you really don't need it, this thing is good.
This isn't where this phone shines. Unfortunately, it only has 8GB of internal storage, though saying that it is expandable up to 32GB on a micro SD. However, you cannot install apps on SD anymore and therefore, if you are a big gamer it may be a problem. For the average phone user the storage should be fine, shame it isn't as high as competitors though which have (usually) 16GB.
Not much to say, has a recent version of HTC Sense (I believe 4.04) and comes with android 4.0 (ICS) out the box though is update-able to 4.2 Jellybean. It runs both fast and fine.
'Tis good. It has Wi-Fi and 4G so it is nice to have mega quick internet on a mid range phone....I LIKE!
Web surfing an syncing is all very quick and download times are also decent. It also has Flash player which you don't see on many phones anymore so that was nice of them.
The One SV may only have a 5MP rear facing camera but that camera is good. The F2.0 lens makes snapping very nice indeed. Good saturation and lots of options. It's front camera is a 1.6MP camera and again is very nice especially compared to rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (VGA) or Xperia T (1.3). Both camera record in full 1080p video and have the same awesome features HTC packed in!
The One SV is a good phone. For a mid-range device it has solid hardware and is reliable. It was ultra-quick start up and shutdown times too and is a good all round phone. It has all you expect and more. It packs Google Chrome, Soundhound, TuneIn Radio and 7Digital out the box too which is nice. Not only that it has Beats Audio and a very nice music player too. It also has lots of Google Apps such as Google Music, Videos etc. too.
It comes in White which looks good but is quite a dirt magnet, you may wish to invest in a case. If you are an American consumer on Cricket I believe (off the top of my head, I am English) you can get it in a nice 'firey' red so look out for that,.
Overall it is a good phone and I would really recommend it. It would of been nice to have a slightly better screen and a bit more storage but overall it is worth your money.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hkay Outstanding.
I would recommend the phone because of it's impeccable quality including sound, design and performance, moreover, the battery life is fantastic compared to the other smartphones i have acquired. The camera is astonishing with 8 megapixel - not only does it focus, a continuous shot is available, and great editing comes within. Nevertheless, i did find that the phone slips out of your hand, because of it's smoothness and large size, i would recommend a cover or a case to be bought as well as the phone.

Bought this at last two weeks ago. It is very nice to use, and the design of this phone is very nice. At first, I thought the camera is only 5MP will not clear, but after i tried this, it is very clear, the camera lens in this phone is very good. And the sound quality is just nice for me! I would recommend this phone for you if you can't afford to buy high-end phone like me!
