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.

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 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.

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)

 

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.

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.

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...

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

'Ordinarily when it comes to smartphone reviews, we break the phone\x92s 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 \x96 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
