HTC One SV (Boost Mobile)

 

The HTC One SV for Boost Mobile offers a bright display and good camera in a stylish design for a cheap monthly price.

Lightweight and colorful design; Bright screen; Very capable camera; Good battery life

Limited 4G LTE footprint for now; Low-res display

Click to EnlargeAt $299, the HTC One SV offers solid performance and a zippy camera in a colorful design -- all for a low monthly price. The only drawbacks to this device are its low-resolution display and Sprint's limited 4G LTE coverage. Overall, the...

HTC One SV (Boost Mobile)

 

4G LTE support and a gorgeous design make the HTC One SV the smartphone to beat on Boost.

4G LTE Support. Excellent build quality. Stylish design. Bright display. Good camera

Low earpiece volume. Pricey

Some Boost Mobile users got a taste of 4G last year, when the carrier gained access to Sprint's abandoned '4G' WiMAX network. But now Boost has access to Sprint's speedy, shiny new 4G LTE network, which blows WiMAX away. It's still not available in...

HTC One SV (Cricket)

 

The HTC One SV for Cricket gives contract haters a stylish design, fast camera and long battery life, but Cricket's 4G coverage is limited.

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

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

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

 

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...

LTE network support ; Quad-band GSM/tri-band HSDPA support ; 4.3" 16M-color Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen of WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels); Corning Gorilla Glass 2 ; Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.1 ; 1.2 GHz dual-core Krait...

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 (Cricket Wireless)

 

Cricket's 4G LTE network is finally here, and not a moment too soon. Without speedy LTE, Cricket smartphones were stuck in the slow lane. But now that it's in 18 Cricket markets (and more coming), you should be picking up an LTE smartphone if you're...

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

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

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

HTC One SV Review

 

The HTC One SV offers a display of respectable size, well-performing dual-core processor, and LTE connectivity for rapid access to the web. U.S. carrier Cricket Wireless will be offering the smartphone starting January 16, but it can already be...

LTE connectivity ; Slim, light, good-looking smartphone ; Excellent performance

Camera leaves room for improvement ; Unimpressive screen resolution of 800 by 480 pixels

Not bad, HTC, not bad. The smarthpone that you've crafted may be a bit rough around the edges, but it is still a very solid Android offering, and the presence of LTE connectivity is, of course, more than welcome. Whoever picks the HTC One SV up will be...

We love to see disruption when it comes to the carrier death grip we seem to have in the US. Cricket and HTC have joined together to alleviate that a bit, and I wouldn't be afraid to recommend the One SV to anyone looking for a premium experience on a...
