LTE for 430 Euro (~$590). The One SV is the newest member in HTC's portfolio and it's designed to shake up the hotly contested mid-range smartphone market. We look at how well the new 4.3-inch smartphone with its updated hardware, LTE support, and...

HTC One SV (Cricket) Review


At $329, the One SV for Cricket is anything but an impulse buy. After all, you can pick up the nearly identical One VX for AT&T for just $50. However, you'll save a bundle in the long run and still enjoy a premium design, speedy dual-core performance...

Colorful and compact design, Long battery life, Swift overall performance, Fast camera, Unlimited music downloads included

Cricket has small 4G LTE footprint, Low-resolution display, Some photos look soft, Lacks Jelly Bean (for now)

HTC One SV review: a middleweight performer that's not just a pretty face


HTC's One SV has arrived, and joins a plethora of above-average-spec handsets vying for your money. Available on Cricket in the US and EE in the UK, the

Solid performance ; Attractive design ; Inexpensive

Low-res ; Somewhat awkward to hold

The SV is a solid option for people who want an LTE device on the cheap.

HTC One SV review:


The HTC One SV proves stunningly attractive smartphones that can find a home on prepaid carriers. Available on Cricket Wireless for $349.99, the slim, colorfully seductive One SV certainly adds spice to the provider's no-contract lineup. With its fiery...

The HTC One SV flaunts a thin, stylish look, a fast processor, and free Muve Music service.

The One SV’s screen and camera resolution aren’t sharp, its call quality is disappointing, and though its camera is full-featured, it takes mediocre photos.

The HTC One SV’s sleek design and fast processor are impressive, but not its call quality or the pictures it takes.

HTC One SV review: Picking up speed


As the LTE networks rapidly increase their reach globally, support for them is no longer exclusively reserved for high-end devices. The HTC One SV is a clear example of this trend. The Android smartphone is far from the Taiwanese company's top shelf...

Outdated display ; No dedicated camera button ; Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich does not cut it in 2013 ; Pricing in some markets inches too close to better equipped devices

The HTC One SV packs a curious personality, that's for sure. The handset combines good looks (especially in the red color scheme), superb build quality, rich set of features, and adequate performance all in one - those are qualities which HTC...

HTC One SV Review


Flagship smartphones may get us talking, but it's mass market devices like the HTC One SV that get huge sales, and that's just what UK 4G trailblazer EE needs to help push LTE to the mainstream. HTC's mid-range Android ticks some high-end boxes, with...

You can certainly see HTC’s strategy: make a neatly styled, midrange device that balances battery life with the usefulness of 4G, and help push LTE connectivity out of the premium tier. Unfortunately, some of the company’s decisions – or, perhaps, the...

HTC One SV (Cricket Wireless)


The HTC One SV is a well-built midrange LTE smartphone for Cricket's new 4G network.

Great design and build quality. Fast LTE. Solid Web and app performance.

Earpiece is a bit quiet. Muve Music requires special SD card.
