I am a fan of big screen phones. There I admit it, so why I may here you ask do I have HTC‘s latest offering in the Rhyme sitting in front of me for review. Well the reason couldn’t be simpler, if you are a regular reader of Coolsmartphone...

I often find that phones catered to females are useless. They’re usually underpowered, based on an old design or colored pink to make it look feminine and that’s all. It’s as if phone manufacturers think that all girls like the color...

Overall, the HTC Rhyme is a nice handset. Aside from the colour, it doesn't really do enough to stand out in a crowded smartphone market, but if you like the styling, and can find a good deal, then it's well worth a second look. HTC Rhyme...

The Rhyme is the kind of high quality midrange handset we've got very used to seeing from HTC, distinguished by its distinctive look and bundled set of accessories. It's a pity about the poor quality headphones, especially since they match the...

Expert Review MRP: Rs 30,000Street Price (As On 3-Jan-2012): Rs 26,000 (; ; )Every smartphone in the market brags about CPUs and RAM. However, for the fairer sex all that doesn't seem to matter too much. With that in mind, HTC is out with an...

HTC has produced yet another impressive smartphone that delivers in all areas. The handset performed beyond our expectations and the extra accessories are the icing on the cake. Not having Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right away is a relatively...

Out of the box the Rhyme conforms to the classic HTC look with an oblong but curvy shape, wide front speaker and a set of four buttons below the screen. We like the HTC look but the difference here is the colour. Most of HTC's phones come in black,...

The bundled accessories make the HTC Rhyme an attractive proposition, despite its average specs....

HTC has tagged the Rhyme with an MRP of Rs.29,999, but you can find it in shops for Rs.27,500 or maybe even a bit less online. The problem is that, it’s arrived to the party a bit late, since there are more powerful phones priced above and below...

Despite the positives, the Rhyme seems like an odd choice for the debut of Sense 3.5. The 1GHz processor gets the job done but it struggles when burdened with too much work. The resultant stuttering and slowdown do much to dent the otherwise positive...

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? Well, if you remember those, you are old enough to remember old jokes how women can't park and men hate...

We really wanted to love the Rhyme. Even though HTC doesn’t want to admit that it has targeted women, we liked the way they had done so! It has a good design and excellent battery life. The phone is reasonably fast in use, the Sense 3.5 is a great...

The HTC Rhyme would be a welcome and unique mid-range phone, but unless you find a cheap contract deal it's far too expensive for what it offers...

I laugh every time a see a commercial for a smartphone. For the most part, they are entirely unhelpful, and recently seem to involve robots fighting and things getting sliced in half. Oh, and they don’t tell you anything about the phone. In a...

From stick-on Swarovski bling to mobile phones shaped like make-up compacts (ick) to laptops with 'accessorisable covers to match your outfit!' (seriously?) tech companies have always had a hard time marketing at women without making their...

At its most basic level the HTC Rhyme is a nice handset. Its simple design is lovely, it has enough performance to get by, and the included speaker dock is a nice addition. However, the charm accessory and headphones don't really add much to the...

The HTC Rhyme is a solid performer overall. Android aficionados will appreciate the excellent quality and construction of the device, and the bundled charging dock and wired charm are a real bonus. The dated hardware and smaller size probably...

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....

I like items that have their own personality and that aren’t similar to every one else’s, but lately it seems like all of the HTC phones that I have been posting about have been basically the same phone — albeit with different features...
