HTC Rhyme

 

Unlike Yorkie, this is for girls!

Elegant slim design, if you like purple, Speaker dock is a nice addition, Great camera interface, Stylish software design, Good battery life

Only a single core processor, Other accesories aren't convincing, Non removable battery

HTC Rhyme

 

The launch of the HTC Rhyme saw the Taiwanese manufacturer tiptoeing around its words. With a cleaned-up homescreen, colours that were anything but black and a name that lacked the usual superstar aggression, HTC did everything it could to avoid saying...

Battery life, a good all-round performer, accessories in the box make a nice package

The "simplification" of the Rhyme is only on the surface, those accessories might not meet the demands of some, there isn't anything about the phone itself that really sets it apart

Overall there isn't much to dislike about HTC Rhyme: it's a solid performer, and despite the aim of cutting down on some of the geekery of HTC Sense, you'll still find it is fully-functional. Sure, there are places where we think it is a little...

HTC Rhyme review

 

Another stylish mid-range offering from HTC…but is it offering anything particularly new?

HTC Sense 3.5 upgrade ; Deep purple colour/fresh update ; Solid build ; Speaker dock and light charm are useful ; 8GB microSD included

Battery isn't removable ; Purple update of the HTC Desire S ; Only single core CPU ; Headphones didn't stay in ears properly ; Average to middling battery power

From stick-on Swarovski bling to mobile phones shaped like make-up compacts (ick) to laptops with 'accessorisable covers to match your outfit!' (seriously?) tech companies have always had a hard time marketing at women without making their product look...

A competent smartphone with some fun accessories, but it's not particularly inspiring

HTC Rhyme Review: In Depth

 

The Rhyme is the closest HTC has come to creating a fashion phone. But instead of simply teaming up with a fashion label to create a colour version, the company has included mid/high-end features seen…

Fantastic build quality ; 1Ghz processor feels fast ; HTC Sense includes some useful features ; Useful charging/speaker dock

Uncomfortable headphones ; Poor HD movie quality ; Screen resolution could be higher

HTC Rhyme review

 

The HTC Rhyme Android phone may have originally intended to target females, but this sleek and stylish Android phone should appeal to a broader market, too. On its own the Rhyme doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary. However, its killer feature is...

The HTC Rhyme Android phone might have intended to target females, but this sleek and stylish Android phone is good enough to appeal to a broader gender base. Excellent build quality, slick software and a generous amount of included accessories -- the...

The Rhyme is the kind of phone that HTC excels at producing. It looks nice, is well built with a combination of plastic and aluminium, has a great screen, is fast, has an okay camera, and battery life that we wish were a little longer. It does nothing...

HTC Rhyme review -

 

Slick design, unique accessories make the Rhyme stand out from the pack, and *whisper it* there is female appeal

Poor camera, mediocre call quality, overpriced for the performance it musters

HTC Rhyme review

 

The HTC Rhyme is one of the latest smartphones to hit the market, and unlike the majority of other handsets, the Rhyme has been launched specifically with girls in mind. It offers decent styling and a solid feature set, but is it enough to tempt people...

Overall, the HTC Rhyme is a nice handset. Aside from the colour, it doesn't really do enough to stand out in a crowded smartphone market, but if you like the styling, and can find a good deal, then it's well worth a second look. HTC Rhyme review is...

HTC Rhyme review

 

The handsets keep a-comin' from HTC, with no sign of letting up.The Rhyme is a mid-range Android with the latest Senseuser interface, a 5-megapixel camera and a boxful ofaccessories.

Nice design, latest HTC Sense UI, bundled docking station andaccessories, good battery life

Poor headphones, camera not great in low light

The Rhyme is the kind of high quality midrange handsetwe've got very used to seeing from HTC, distinguished by itsdistinctive look and bundled set of accessories. It's a pity aboutthe poor quality headphones, especially since they match thehandset so...
