HTC One SV Unboxing and hands on video
If you don't want a phone with a massive display but still want a reasonable amount of screen real estate the HTC One SV may well be the perfect choice. Sporting a 4.3 inch screen the One SV is a nice update from the One S but it isn't ground breaking. Sure, it is 4G so you can currently use it here in the UK with EE, but apart from that there is nothing amazing about it. That said it may sell well as HTC users have come to love the Sense UI that HTC provide over Android. And while we are on the subject of Android, the One SV only ships with Ice Cream Sandwich which is a bit of a shame. It will get an upgrade to jelly Bean but when that is I don't know.
The 1.2 GHz processor in the handset is more than enough to provide a speedy user experience and camera wise the One SV should do a pretty decent job. The HTC One SV is never going to outsell the likes of the top of the range Android devices but it should provide a nice upgrade to the average person popping into a high street phone shop.
