HTC Rhyme review: Pour Femme

 

Alright. This one's a bit different. So we act accordingly. And because we're not quite versed in all things fashion, let's move straight to what we're good at. Meet the HTC Rhyme.

Comes in colors no man can name ; Has a purse charm ; Mirror app preloaded

(sadly, the real thing) ; Average display ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; No dedicated camera key ; Pricey for a single-core smartphone (generously accessorized though) ; Wi-Fi death grip issues

HTC Rhyme (Verizon Wireless)

 

The HTC Rhyme is a comfortable, capable Android smartphone that comes with a nice bundle of accessories, but is held back by a lack of 4G.

Comfortable to hold and use. Nice screen. Great battery life. Bundled charm, dock, and earphones work well.

No 4G. Purple color isn't for everyone. Midrange specs.

HTC Rhyme review

 

The HTC Rhyme is one of the newest additions to the Verizon wireless line-up, setting itself apart from the rest of the family since it's specifically

Beautiful hardware ; Good battery life ; Useful camera effects

Too much Verizon bloatware ; Middling specs for a $200 handset ; Poorly made accessories

This mid-range phone and subpar accessories are hardly enough to keep up the modern, multitasking woman -- even if it is purple.

HTC Rhyme Review

 

Despite the transparent marketing ploy to target women, the HTC Rhyme is a enjoyable device. It's an attractive phone with an intuitive user interface and a sharp camera. The inclusion of the speaker dock, headphones, and Charm give the phone...

Elegant design with soft-touch back, Streamlined Sense interface, Innovative accessories, Useful bundled apps

So-so performance, No 4G, Expensive, Annoying port cover

HTC Rhyme (Verizon Wireless) review: HTC Rhyme (Verizon Wireless)

 

We'll confess: When we first started hearing about the HTC Bliss , we were dreading what kind of stereotypes the phone would make about women. However, we were pleasantly surprised when the Bliss made its official debut in mid-September as the HTC...

The HTC Rhyme boasts a beautiful, compact design. The Android Gingerbread smartphone comes bundled with a number of accessories, including a handy desktop dock.

The Rhyme's purple color and cell phone charm won't be for everyone. Camera quality could be better.

Though certain aspects of the phone limit its appeal to a larger audience, the HTC Rhyme is a solid and stylish midrange Android device that comes with some nice accessories.

HTC Rhyme Review

 

Most smartphones are generic in their appearance, black or gray in color, and aren't really targeted for a specific gender. Meet the HTC Rhyme from Verizon Wireless - one of the few smartphones that are designed for women. But in doing so, the Rhyme is...

HTC Rhyme Review

 

In a day and age where we have dual-core smartphones ruling to roost, it's a little hard to recommend a single-core smartphone. It's not like the device is bad. The camera has some nice effects. Apps run smoothly until you start some heavy...

Good build and design, Sense 3.5 is a refreshing UI over Android, Upgradable to ICS, Good battery life

Single-core processor, Charm is a useless accessory, Battery cannot be removes

HTC Rhyme Review (Verizon) – Is it the Go-To Phone for Women?

 

Ordinarily when it comes to smartphone reviews, we break the phone's hardware and software down into sections like display, performance, etc. But the new HTC Rhyme is not ...

Excellent form-factor, fun and unique accessories included in the box – plus more available, HTC Sense widgets enhances the Android experience

Call quality issues, device tends to heat up in use, not a 4G device, a bit pricey for it specs, battery life could be better

HTC Rhyme Android Smartphone Review

 

Over the past few months we have seen some handsets from HTC which very much pushed the boundaries in the Android marketplace. The Sensation was a high end dual core handset which was release to compete at the top of the market and the Evo 3D took a...

In terms of build quality the HTC Rhyme does a fairly good job, the aluminium body is sturdy and durable and the soft touch plastic panels not only help keep the weight down but also provide tactile non-slip surface.
