Pros:

  • Comfortable to hold and use, Nice screen, Great battery life, Bundled charm, dock, and earphones work well.

  • Excellent formfactor, fun and unique accessories included in the box – plus more available, HTC Sense widgets enhances the Android experience.

Cons:

  • No 4G, Purple color isn't for everyone, Midrange specs.
  • Battery is not user-replaceable; the phone is going to tak a lot of flack because it is plum … get over it, people!

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...

The Rhyme is another excellent release from HTC, and a win for anyone looking to avoid the little black boxes that most other manufacturers are releasing. The bundled speaker dock is definitely worth taking a look at,...

Last week we took a quick look at the HTC Rhyme it’s got a strong, unibody design and comes with a headset, docking station and a charm device that will flash when you have a text or incoming call. The battery cover doubles as the antenna and the...

The HTC Rhyme is a good all-rounder, not falling into the trap of becoming a female-only phone. The bundled accessories make the package feel more complete, but the phone faces fierce competition...

When the HTC Rhyme first arrived on the scene, Verizon's major focus seemed to be on the marketing angle rather than the meat of the phone. Widely understood to be a lady phone, the Rhyme's promise as a piece of hardware got lost amid...

Honestly speaking the HTC Rhyme is not a smartphone I would ever consider as a guy. It is deliberately feminine, you’re paying extra for accessories that you might not want and the specs are below par. In particular I’d be looking for a...

In conclusion, the Rhyme could be a great phone for a lot of people. It definitely gets its target audience, but its focus on woman will no-doubt turn many other buyers away. If you are looking for the latest and greatest hardware, you might be better...
