HTC Rhyme review: Pour Femme

It's been a long time since we last saw a phone exclusively targeted at women. Was the Nokia 6600 fold or the Samsung Diva the last ones?



Speaking of which, the HTC Rhyme is not an Android - it's more like a Fembot. On a serious note, HTC don't like to call it a smartphone, let alone mention Android anywhere in the conversation. However women are clearly the HTC Rhyme's demographic whether HTC admits it or not. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support
  • 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 3.7" 16M-color capacitive S-LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels)
  • Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.5
  • 1 GHz single Scorpion CPUs, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset
  • Average display
  • Non-user-replaceable battery
  • No dedicated camera key
  • Pricey for a single-core smartphone (generously accessorized though)
  • Wi-Fi death grip issues

HTC Rhyme

This mid-range phone and subpar accessories are hardly enough to keep up the modern, multitasking woman -- even if it is purple. read more →

  • Beautiful hardware
  • Good battery life
  • Useful camera effects
  • Too much Verizon bloatware
  • Middling specs for a $200 handset
  • Poorly made accessories

HTC Rhyme (Verizon Wireless)

The HTC Rhyme is a comfortable, capable Android smartphone that comes with a nice bundle of accessories, but is held back by a lack of 4G and midrange specs. read more →

  • Comfortable to hold and use
  • Nice screen
  • Great battery life
  • Bundled charm, dock, and earphones work well.
  • No 4G
  • Purple color isn't for everyone
  • Midrange specs.

Another stylish mid-range offering from HTC…but is it offering anything particularly new?

While the HTC Rhyme is a stylish version of a phone that's already great in its own right, this mid-range smartphone doesn't bring anything new to the table except a few fancy accessories - but will attract those stylistas looking for something that isn't yet another iPhone clone. read more →

  • HTC Sense 3.5 upgrade
  • Deep purple colour/fresh update
  • Solid build
  • Speaker dock and light charm are useful
  • 8GB microSD included
  • Battery isn't removable
  • Purple update of the HTC Desire S
  • Only single core CPU
  • Headphones didn't stay in ears properly
  • Average to middling battery power

HTC Rhyme Review

If you like the plum color, then you should take a look at the HTC Rhyme , as it offers a lot, including the new HTC Sense 3.5 interface, 5MP camera, good call quality and battery life. But we can’t help but think that some people will be turned-off by the plum color, and would not consider the Rhyme because of it, despite it being a good phone otherwise. Because of this, it would be nice if the Rhyme were available in a few other color choices to appeal to a broader audience. read more →

  • Updated HTC Sense UI 3.5
  • Compact design
  • Above average 5MP camera quality
  • Stereo earbuds are included
  • Some might not like the color
  • Bit of a background “hiss” in calls
  • Battery cannot be removed
  • Lighted charm seems useless
