  • 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

Mobile Review
24 July 2012
  • 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.

HTC Desire V Review

23 July 2012
  • 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.

21 June 2012
  • 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.

HTC Desire V – User Review

8 January 2012
  • 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!
