HTC Desire V is the most gorgeous dual-SIM Android phone in the market

When you think of dual-SIM Android phones, you’ll often see those that are small, under-powered and have that cheap plasticky body. It’s because of that reason why a lot of people who needs a dual-SIM phone just opt for a cheap secondary phone, there’s none worthy of being a primary phone.

HTC just changed that concept of dual-SIM phones with their HTC Desire V, which is arguably the most good-looking dual-SIM smartphone in the market. It’s not only beautiful but has specs that can prove to be a decent primary phone, if you’re not into those high-end ones.

The HTC Desire V has a 4-inch display with  an average 800 x 480 screen resolution. Powering it is an old but still reliable Qualcomm Snapdragon (S1) 1GHz processor (same with the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus and LG Optimus L7) and 512MB RAM. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a layer of HTC Sense 4.0 UI. It comes with a built-in 4GB internal storage with support for up to 32GB microSD. You’ll also get a 5-megapixel rear camera but no front-facing one. Like previous phones from HTC, this one also has Beats Audio inside.

Only the primary SIM supports 3G so make sure you put your SIM for mobile browsing on that first slot. Haven’t really played with its dual-SIM dual-standby capability but there’s a SIM manager built-in on the Settings app should you run into some questions.

Being in the family of the HTC Desire, it resembles the look of the HTC Desire S, only a bit larger. The back has this rounded patch on the camera lens that’s just part of the design. I initially thought it served a purpose but it’s just a design element. Still, the overall look and the feel of it makes the HTC Desire V the most desirable dual-SIM Android phone we’ve seen so far.

The HTC Desire V should already be making their way in stores with an SRP of Php16, 990 in either black or white colors.

    Nice! Although I still can’t wait for a high end dual sim device. I hope Samsung will bring in the Galaxy S2 Duos in the country. A dual sim One X or S3 or Note would be a killer device!

      Galaxy Note duos sana meron din 😀
      ok na sana to, 480 x 800, 4″

    Priced at 17K and no front-facing cam?

  • So it’s not dual core? And still costs for almost 17k? Overpriced.

    • nope just dual-sim

    • Griswold

      SRP lang naman yan at baka mas mababa by 1k sa shops. magkano ba sa tingin mo dapat ang dual-sim na single-core? kung gusto mo mura dun ka sa mga mukhang cheap na dual-sim phones.

      • sinneD

        cash price nila yn.mas mahal pg installment
        Cheap n dual sim b? Alcatel blaze glory.

    • Griswold

      at tsaka kung mapapansin mo may karapatan naman na maging mataas presyo ang HTC dahil sa kalidad ng mga phones nila compared sa Samsung and LG. mura nga pero mukhang mura talaga.
