HTC Rhyme Review


Right from the time the Rhyme was just a rumour doing it's rounds on the Internet (it was known as the Bliss, back then), it was categorized as a phone for the fairer sex, owing to its pastel trim and the fact that it would ship with a ‘charm', an...

HTC has tagged the Rhyme with an MRP of Rs.29,999, but you can find it in shops for Rs.27,500 or maybe even a bit less online. The problem is that, it’s arrived to the party a bit late, since there are more powerful phones priced above and below it,...

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. Seriously, now. Tough job building a ladies phone - but hey, that's...

The HTC Rhyme is hard to define. It almost feels like they didn't plan this one as a phone for girls. When they later decided to target the female audience, they came up with all sorts of relevant accessories. You'll never hear anyone at HTC call it...

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


The HTC Rhyme offers a sleek design, an intuitive interface, and cool accessories, but it's not the best performer for the price.

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

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

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...

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 Rhyme...

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 [Video]


When it comes to unique Android devices, generally it's a manufacturer's job to make the biggest, the most powerful, or the most thin – all that's been thrown out the window with the HTC Rhyme. What we've got here instead is the world's first real...

HTC Rhyme (Verizon Wireless)


The handset is a dual-band EV-DO Rev A (800/1900MHz) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. There's also a Wi-Fi hotspot mode that lets you use the phone as a modem for up to five devices with the appropriate data plan. I was very disappointed not to see...

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

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 and midrange specs.

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...

A girl's new best friend?

HTC’s Sense, Unique bundle, Good build quality, Hot-swappable microSD

Non-removable battery, Single core CPU, Dock can’t be used to connect to PC, Screen doesn’t handle black very well

The phone comes with 4GB of internal storage but only about 1GB may be used but HTC have generously included an 8GB microSD card in the bundle. It also comes with 768MB of RAM. The dimensions are 119 x 60.8 x 10.85 mm and it weighs only 130 grams. The...

HTC Rhyme Android Smartphone Review


The Rhyme is a departure for HTC from previous handsets in terms of form and function. When looking at this model we cannot help being struck by its unique styling and it's out of the ordinary, for HTC at least, colour and bundled accessories.

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.
