HTC Desire V dual SIM Android 4.0 Smartphone

HTC Desire V dual SIM an Android Smartphone released in India for Rs.21.990.00. The phone is equipped with ICS. This phone comes in some models which run on Android. Samsung has ruled both mid range and high range Android phone market. Now we need to wait and watch what HTC offers. HTC Desire V is a dual sim phone. This is nothing new, but one that that phone gives you is more interface and higher app compatibility. After comparison both the operating system you will like ICS more. ICS is bit resource intensive. It has many bug fixes and runs higher applications. It does not look that Desire V is having something new.

It has 1GHz CPU with beast audio support. Because of Android Smartphone market keeps on flourishing. The need of smart operating system is full-filled. Now what more companies need to do is provide featured phone. As we know that the demands of user keep on rising on the basis of gaming, app usage, internet surfing, etc. Some of the mid range phone does not meet the requirement. The price ratio of 21,000 to 25,000 implies that the phone is rich in feature and output.

One more important factor that buyers see is re-sale value. What if in future you want to change you phone by selling the old one. The older phone will only be valued properly if it belongs to a reputed brand like Nokia. Nokia does not lie in the league of Android Smartphone?s. They are planning to do something different. But I hope soon Nokia might give high feature phone at low range cost. Compared to other HTC do provide some of the best phones in market. Why I prefer to go for HTC is valued product.

You do not need to worry about the performance and output. The touch quality is superb. 1 GHz process according to me is good for ICS. It allows you to play heaver games, and run more resource intensive apps. If you are planning to get an ICS phone below 800 MHz then simply quit your decision. There is no chance to upgrade CPU on phone. It is important that your phone must provide you a good battery life, easy performance, and compatibility with other devices.

The design looks very attractive. 4" screen on the front side with glossy white body on the back and red circled camera distinguished separately. Compared to other phone HTC is rich in design. Good grip and look makes the phone richer. Dual Sim lies on stand mode and offer you dual calling support. So in short you?re both Sims stays active on the backside. Along with this for a good multimedia features offer you some new technology by HTC called as Beast Sound. This allows you a rich sound quality. As per HTC this feature will give you clear and rich sound on headphones. HTC has promoted Beast Audio as a primary feature. This provides you a high and clear sound output. The technology tries to keep the sound quality as it without changing the output which mostly happens in other phone. I am here not talking about the speakers, but on headphones. There are rare phones which gives you rich sound quality.


For example phones with Yamaha amplifier are far much better than regular one. Beast Audio safeguards the exact quality of sound. It helps you to give you appropriate sound even when there is lots of disturbance around you. There is a separate profile called as Beast Audio in the phone. The profile stays also active on wifi. HTC wants it is users to have rich multimedia experience also. As mostly we use our phone for that purpose. Along with sound quality, a better song management features is added. It keeps a track of recent albums, your favorite playlist on your phone home screen. Other features are common like search by album, genre, artist, etc. Along with this as a free add-on you get online radio app. This allows you to access worldwide radio for free.

Re: HTC Desire V dual SIM Android 4.0 Smartphone

The size is also worth to discuss here. A little larger than credit card the phone lies properly in your pocket. The weight of phone is approx 4 ounce (weight of salt shaker). So the phone is less bulky, small and rich with features. Along with the phone has some Sense 4 technology. As per HTC this gives smoother touch experience compared to any other phone. Sense 4 helps to put less strain on the screen. Sense is not just the touch interface but more than that. It is a set of features which are not found in higher models. Sense 4.0 is proprietary software of HTC which is designed to give you rich media interface. You do not need to fight with your images and videos at this time. The phone is equipped with 5 MP front cameras with Audio Focus and LED Flash. Along with it has a F2.8 aperture and 34mm lens. It is possible to record HD videos and images through it. With a mixture of Sense and rich Camera features you can instantly tap the best image and right time. You do not need to struggle with the settings here.

For example the Instant Capture mode. Under this there are moments which everyone wants to capture. At that time if your camera is not ready, you may lost that. Also a number of times to get the right photo you have to do certain adjustment. Under Instant Capture modes your camera becomes ready in seconds. You can simply swipe the finger on the screen and take the picture. This also works if the home screen is locked. You do not need to unlock it. Instant mode lets you to capture rich photos.

On the same part you can see Zero Shutter buttons which helps you to get a clear static image. Also to get a more clear image the camera stays on Always Focus mode. Under this the technology implemented by HTC is EDOF. This keeps to the camera on the focus mode so that you can get the right close-up. The camera captures nice image in less light also. Flash helps you to get additional lights when needed. The maximum photo resolution that you can have is 720p.

Along with sound quality the phone has rich multimedia experience. Along with Beast Audio HTC provides you HTC Music. This is another integrated feature for rich multimedia experience. HTC Music is a pack of features. It provides you an online music services and radio station. The output quality is not compromised here. That is reason Beast Audio is applicable on all. Other than this you can simply sync your wifi device with the phone and play music on it. You can listen to premium sound with enhancement.

From Entertainment point of view you have some TV features also. HTC Watch will help you for that. It allows you to stream HD TV shows and movies on your phone. You need a good internet bandwidth for that. Also the same can be viewed on your widescreen TV. HTC has targeted many movies and videos on this feature so that you cannot get bored. The phone is a good companion for DLNA supported devices. HTC Sync Manager also helps you to backup your contact and important info.

So that if somehow you lost anything or restored phone settings, you can get back everything instantly. The sync manager not only backup your contents or calendar, but your media content also. It depends on your needs. You can even restore your photos and videos along with songs playlist, etc. HTC Desire V dual SIM is also rich in cutomization. Thanks to ICS. You can turn the phone entirely your way. You can group applications in one box or simply have widgets on the lock screen. The drag and drop interface of ICS makes easier to manage applications.

The home screen panels are richer. There are around tons of skins and wallpapers that come pre-built. ICS is more features in organization your phone apps. Along with this keeping shortcut for more frequently used app, managing your lock screen, notifications, are other more additions. Distinct features this phone has a usage meter. This meter tells you the cost of your phone calls and message. Also it tells information on related to your internet bandwidth. That is quiet nice applications. You can simply control or get updates about your bandwidth limitations.

Conclusion:

The odds points of this phone that it is look overpriced. Yet when the phone reaches retail shop then the right price can be determined. But if you are looking for an ICS phone do have a look on HTC Desire V. The phone gives you a complete pack of entertainment, backup restore, browsing and interface. The browsing rich experience allows you to easily navigate multiple web pages. ICS allows you flash support which works nicely on this phone. The Smartphone is equipped with interface to browser any website smoothly. Pinch zoom lets you to see and read important part of page.

Like a free subscription of Dropbox and Skydrive. You can have your all office files on web and view them your phone also. Sync allows you to have most updated files. There are not end of features. The phone has more to give. All in all I will rate this phone 4 out of 5. I hope sellers might compromise bit on price.
