HTC Desire V review: A simple wish


Long gone are the glory days of the Desire line - once a cradle of flagships, it now gives in to the rise of the One series. With the Wildfires all but extinguished, the Desires got the lower midrange all to themselves. But instead of clinging to a...

HTC Desire (Virgin Mobile)


4G LTE support. Loud stereo speakers. Comfortable, well-built design

Average call quality with low maximum volume

The HTC Desire is a well-crafted Android phone for Virgin Mobile subscribers, offering solid features and 4G LTE speeds for a reasonable price.

HTC Desire V Review


Here comes the HTC Desire V – the company's first dual-SIM smartphone, which stands out with its attractive design and decent hardware. Sure, its specs sheet has “mid-range” written all over it, yet the handset is actually among the best dual-SIM...

Great design ; Nice display ; dual-SIM functionality

Performance is below par ; Camera quality is below average ; Only 1GB of user-available storage

When it comes to dual-SIM smartphones, there aren't too many of them currently on sale, or at least not from any of the well-known manufacturers. That said, it is great to see that a respected company like HTC is entering this market niche with an...

HTC Desire V - Dual-SIM Android Option


The HTC Desire V is a new entry-level smartphone that boasts dual-SIM functionality, a large 4.0-inch WXGA touchscreen and runs on the Android 4.0 OS. Can its single-core 1GHz processor handle all that's required from a modern device? We put it to the...

Excellent design and solid build quality ; Crisp 4.0-inch LCD screen ; Refined Sense 4.0a UI ; Dual-SIM option

Limited internal memory space ; Single-core processor ; Mediocre camera performance

At S$498, the HTC Desire V aims itself squarely at those looking for an affordable smartphone with a pretty niche dual-SIM feature (especially useful for frequent travelers requiring foreign and local numbers active concurrently on the same device)....

HTC Desire V Review


We really don't see anything impressive about the Desire V apart from the fact that this is HTC's first dual-sim phone and that the audio quality is above-average. The Desire V is well built, yes, but it is more of a niche product in our opinion.

Keeping all the points in mind we find HTC Desire V superior to Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos in mostly every way. Only the price of HTC Desire which is almost twice that of Samsung Galaxy makes people think before buying it. Samsung Galaxy Ace is the phone...

Since the invasion of DUAL SIM mobile, I was always fascinated by them as I needed one number for my girl friend and one number for my usual use. But I didn't take the plunge as I wanted a reliable brand. Symbian and Nokia were above all for me till...
