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.
Conclusion: The phone comes with 4GB of internal storage but only about 1GB may be used but HTC have generously included an 8GB microSD card in the bundle. It also comes with 768MB of RAM. The dimensions are 119 x 60.8 x 10.85 mm and it weighs only 130 grams. The phone feels slimmer though as it tapers at the back near the edges. The HTC Rhyme comes with a 5mpx camera with auto focus and an LED flash that is capable of taking videos at 720p.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Despite the transparent marketing ploy to target women, the HTC Rhyme is a enjoyable device. It's an attractive phone with an intuitive user interface and a sharp camera. The inclusion of the speaker dock, headphones, and Charm give the phone additional functionality, but $199 is a lot to pay for an Android phone that doesn't offer a dual-core processor or 4G data.
Pros: Elegant design with soft-touch back, Streamlined Sense interface, Innovative accessories, Useful bundled apps
Cons: So-so performance, No 4G, Expensive, Annoying port cover
Excerpt: The device runs on Android 2.3.5 ( Gingerbread ) with the Sense 3.5 UI. The interface hasn't changed much from its previous iteration - the lock screen featuring an unlock ring and four customisable shortcuts are all still intact. The only change worth mentioning is that you can add and delete home screens from the overview mode. Apart from that, Sense UI is smooth as usual. While the main menu lags a bit, this is more of an Android optimisation issue.
Pros: Comes with the Charm accessory; Sleek design; Good sound quality; Great UI customisation; Pre-loaded Mirror app.
Cons: Wi-Fi death-grip; Overpriced; Lacklustre video player; Unimpressive camera; Slightly laggy at times.
Conclusion: HTC Rhyme to propozycja bardzo ciekawa, ale niezbyt opłacalna. Jeśli komuś podoba się ta konstrukcja, powinien poczekać aż jej cena znacząco się obniży. Nie warto na nią wydawać aż 2000 zł.
