Review: HTC Rhyme for Verizon Wireless

The HTC-skinned music application on the Rhyme does all the same things that the stock Android app does, it just looks a little nicer. You can sort through tunes in the usual way, via artist, song, album, genre, composer, etc. Music can be sideloaded on the microSD card.

If you want to purchase music directly from the handset, you'll have to use Verizon's V CAST Music app (which I don't recommend, because it’s expensive as hell), or download the Amazon MP3 app. You won't find Slacker or Pandora, but you know where to find them.


The on-board video app handled all the video files that I threw at it with no problem. Playback was smooth. Movies look good on the large screen. The Rhyme also has the standard YouTube application and Verizon’s V CAST Video.

HTC has also included its new Watch movie/TV show rental/download service. Fees are in-line with other content providers, though the selection of movies isn't robust as what Blockbuster or iTunes offers.
