HTC Rhyme: More than Just A Smart Femme Phone

30 September 2012
  • Summary: P.S. Please don’t ask us what colours “clearwater” and “hourglass” are. The males on staff don’t know, and the females just laugh and shake their heads.

HTC Rhyme Review

6 April 2012
  • Summary: 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 multitasking. The Sense 3.5 is one of the best skins to overlay the Android OS and the fact that the Rhyme is expected to receive the ICS update soon makes it future proof.
  • Pros: Good build and design, Sense 3.5 is a refreshing UI over Android, Upgradable to ICS, Good battery life
  • Cons: Single-core processor, Charm is a useless accessory, Battery cannot be removes

HTC Rhyme Review

3 March 2012
  • Summary: 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, forcing one to think twice before buying it. Your other choices are the Xperia Arc S, which sits at 29K, the Xperia Pro which is 26K and HTC’s own Incredible S, which is cheaper at 25K.

HTC Rhyme Review: In Depth

25 February 2012
  • Conclusion: With its gorgeous build, unusual colour and the inclusion of a charm (while gimmicky), the Rhyme seems to be aimed at a female demographic, some (not all) of whom would prefer its plummy charms it that of a standard black/grey smartphone. What’s really refreshing is that despite focusing on style, HTC  hasn’t compromised on features and performance. Sure there's no dual-core processor, but that's missing the point about the Rhyme.
  • Pros: Fantastic build quality, 1Ghz processor feels fast, HTC Sense includes some useful features, Useful charging/speaker dock
  • Cons: Uncomfortable headphones, Poor HD movie quality, Screen resolution could be higher

Expert Review

21 February 2012
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: The purple styling on the HTC Rhyme won't suit everybody, but then again it's not designed to. Instead, it's targeted at women, with that distinctive colour and an accompanying charm that lights up when the phone rings or notifications come through. The idea of targeting a specific sex is not a new one, and it's usually quite controversial. At least HTC has avoided the typical pink casing, however, and the HTC Rhyme is actually an attractive and well made smartphone. ...
  • Cons: The HTC Rhyme features a uni-body design, and although quality is impressive, there is a large downside. You won't be able to remove the battery yourself, so there's no option for swapping to a second battery. Battery life is also pretty average, making this more obvious.

HTC Rhyme Written Review by Sydney

19 January 2012
  • Summary: My overall experience with the Rhyme was fantastic. I can honestly say that I've enjoyed my time with this phone. Now, I don't know if that's because it's simply a great phone, if it's because HTC did their job in creating a device that would appeal to women, or if I'm simply buying into the marketing. Either way, I am impressed.
  • Pros: As usual from HTC, excellent hardware design; crisp Super-LCD display; additional camera features on top of great camera quality; Sense UI; included accessories are high-quality and useful; fast processor.
  • Cons: Charm wasn't as useful as HTC hoped it would be; non-removable battery; poor HD video quality.
