Review: HTC One SV for Cricket Wireless
I don't think Cricket customers can do much better than the HTC One SV right now. Sure, it costs a hefty $349.99, but everything about it works well. The biggest complaint I can point out is that call quality and volume are only "average" and not "excellent." That's hardly something to cry about. Nearly every other feature of the SV functions well.
HTC did a great job with the hardware, and the screen and battery life are both quite good. The Sense 4.0 user interface is sometimes a bit fussy, but it offers more personalization that most other Android skins do. With the good camera and video camera, excellent media options, and solid network performance, the SV is a winner for Cricket.
Hands-On: HTC One SV for Cricket Wireless
