Summary: The HTC Desire line of phones used to belong to the pinnacle of Android smartphones, a summit HTC themselves broke with their HTC One devices. The HTC Desire V, instead, stands in more affordable, mid-range device shelf.
Conclusion: Demand for dual-SIM smartphones must be at an all-time high judging by how the leaders in the smartphone game are responding to it in what looks almost like a coordinated and sustained campaign.
Conclusion: 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 offering that we find quite decent.
Pros: Great design, Nice display, dual-SIM functionality
Cons: Performance is below par, Camera quality is below average, Only 1GB of user-available storage
Summary: The handset works quite well with the mobile network, although during the two-week period of my testing it, there had been a few similar occasions when one of the SIM cards lost its signal without any reasons, while the other one was still showing the best reception possible.
Summary: 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.

Conclusion: HTC Desire V is an attractive smartphone with decent hardware but it’s clearly not for everyone. Unless you find the need to use two SIM cards, it’s not worth trading for its lack in features and specs.
Excerpt: HTC is a Taiwanese Smartphone manufacturer company who focuses on Windows as well as Android based OS. HTC Desire V is the new phone offered by the company that works on latest Android operating system.
Excerpt: 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 the death of Symbian!
