Small, red, and lovely all over

The HTC One SV is compact and comfortable in the hand and flaunts a premium look. Its 4.3-inch LCD screen, though, is small and has a low resolution of 800x400 pixels.

Trim and iridescent

Measuring a mere 0.36 of an inch thick, the HTC One SV has metallic red edges that are especially striking.

Red accents aplenty

Above the HTC One SV's screen is another interesting design touch, red dashes embedded within the earpiece.

Lots of camera features but low resolution

While the HTC One SV's camera application boasts plenty of features, settings, and shooting modes, its 5MP sensor takes low-resolution images.
