With the launch of the One series, HTC has made a big breakthrough in the market. The HTC One X is premium, the HTC One S is mid-range, and the HTC One V is an affordable class. As the Taiwanese decided to include the first dual SIM model in their offer, it is understandable that the choice fell on the HTC One V.
HTC Desire V Dual SIM is a model that relies on the namesake according to the specification, but visually irresistibly resembles the HTC One S. So, its biggest difference compared to other HTC models are the two cards.
HTC Desire V Dual SIM is reminiscent of a mix of designs from the One and Sensation series.
HTC Desire V Dual SIM is a phone that, although not visually original, still looks stylish and beautiful and with its large 4-inch screen gives the impression of a reliable, useful, and beautiful phone.
It really looks great in the hand, and the colors and shapes that surround the camera on the back of the phone give it a really real design roundness. Therefore, it is not surprising that it seems like some more expensive models. In addition, the HTC Desire V Dual SIM is thinner than the HTC Sensation XE and only slightly thicker than the HTC One V.
HTC Desire V Dual SIM, therefore, has a 4-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 480 × 800 pixels, which means that multimedia will not be a problem for you. Movies and videos have been settled. The screen is pretty good, the image is bright with vivid colors and quite a sharpness.
Ok, the screen may not be among the best, but for this price, it is very good. There’s also a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon processor, which could make the HTC Desire V Dual SIM one of the mid-range models. RAM is represented by 512 MB which is enough for solid multitasking.
Apart from the screen and two SIM cards, ICS Android, which arrives on this phone as a still fresh product, is certainly a clear advantage. This means that you can relax and enjoy the benefits of the new Android version while counting on a solid 4 GB of internal memory, which of course is up to 32 GB with the help of a memory card.
The good things about the HTC Desire V Dual SIM are certainly the already common Beats Audio features and the standard 5 MP camera with LED flash and autofocus.
As the HTC Desire V Dual SIM is a “dual card” phone, you should know that SIM 1 is reserved for internet connection, while the other card is intended for calls. With SIM Manager, you can change your card settings.
HTC Desire V Dual SIM will immediately become a competition to Samsung’s dual SIM trump card (Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos). Just looking at their comparative specification suggests that HTC will have an obvious advantage, both because of the hardware advantage and because of the newer Android.
If you need a dual SIM phone that runs on Android, it seems that you don’t have much choice, because apart from some Huawei models and the mentioned Samsung, you can hardly find a similar device.
On the other hand, HTC Desire V Dual SIM has a not so low price, which can possibly be an obstacle to mass sales, because those who want a dual SIM phone and do not crave for Android OS, can go much cheaper, especially if we have Nokia dual SIM model. Again, its features deserve to be adequately paid, so the choice depends solely on your needs and tastes.
