HTC Rhyme was designed for the female audience. It has some apps that ladies will love and a charm accessory. This charm can be attached to the phone and let it hang outside the handbag. In this way the ladies can see when they have a missed call or SMS because the charm blinks with a bright mauve light.
Its dimensions are more compact than other smartphones in its area. It leaves a nice impression when held in the hand. The metal from the back panel gives the impression of a solid phone. The design is counting on its rounded forms, simplicity and mauve color which will appeal to ladies. The phone weighs 130g and has 119×60.8×10.9mm.
The S-LCD display has 3.7 inches and supports a resolution of 480×800 pixels and a pixel density of 252ppi. Because it was designed for ladies HTC could put a Gorilla Glass screen but they didn’t. The display supports multitouch and has touch sensitive controls.
The Rhyme runs Android OS version 2.3.4 Gingerbread but it can be upgraded to version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It has Sense UI 3.5 which, based on words of the HTC, consumes less battery power. Its integrated browser has Adobe Flash support and is running good and normal for a single core phone.
The hardware part is formed from a single core Scorpion processor clocked at 1GHz based on a Qualcomm MSM8255, an Adreno 205 GPU and 768Mb of RAM. The storage has 4GB and can be expanded with a microSD card up to 32GB. The Rhyme is one of the best single core smarphones clocked at 1GHz based on the Android OS platform.
For connectivity the Rhyme has a 3.5mm jack for audio output and a microUSB 2.0 slot with a mauve rubber protection against dust. In the interior it has Wi-Fi with b/g/n protocols, Wi-Fi Hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP + EDR, GPS with A-GPS, FM radio with RDS and 3G HSDPA speeds up to 14.4 Mbps.
The Rhyme has a 5MP camera accompanied by a LED flash. It also has a front secondary VGA camera for those who use video calling. The primary camera has autofocus, geo-tagging and can shoot HD at 720p. The photos have good quality but appear to be slightly modified, because the colors are a bit nuanced than reality.
Its battery has 1600 mAh and keeps the phone on quite long. At an intensive use it can last about 1.5-2 days. This is thanks to the 3.7 inches display.
In conclusion the HTC Rhyme is a smartphone for ladies with a price a little higher than its competitors but if you want to make a nice gift to your girlfriend you won’t look at the price. It will fit perfectly in her hands, it has a novel design, and the battery and browsing experience are very good. Also the camera makes very nice pictures which are very colorful just as the ladies want.
