HTC Ville

An Overview On The HTC Ville

The HTC Ville or what is also know as the HTC One S has been released last April in the UK. Just like the other One series mobiles, the HTC Ville runs on Google's Android OS and to be specific it uses the latest iteration of the system or what is commonly referred to as the Ice Cream Sandwich. The mobile is a mid range mobile which is just in between of the HTC One X and the budget phone One V.

In terms of its design, it is very much similar to the HTC One X which was the flagship mobile of the series. The handset sports a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display which has a 540 x 960 resolution and a pixel density of 251 ppi. Underneath the display screen are three touch sensitive navigational keys which includes the home, back and recent applications key. The search key which is present on older version of the HTC mobiles have been replaced with the recent applications key due to the reason that the search function is now being integrated on all home screens.

It comes in a black casing and does not have any alternative colors. When it comes to its dimension, it is pretty much average. It is neither big or small. It measures 130.9 mm in height, 65 mm in width and surprisingly, it has a 7.8 mm depth. It is actually thinner than almost all smart phones on the market. It is even light and weighs only 119.5 grams making the mobile really handy.

The HTC Ville has been made available by a lot of major UK carriers. O2 UK offers the mobile for free for a monthly cost of £36.00 and for a 24 month contract. It includes access to unlimited monthly call minutes, unlimited text messaging and a 1 gigabyte monthly Internet allowance. T-Mobile offers the mobile for free for a lower cost of £26.00 and still for a 24 month contract. However, monthly call minutes is just 300 and the monthly Internet allowance is just 750 MB. Nevertheless, the users could still enjoy the unlimited text messaging. For the same monthly cost of £36.00, you could get the mobile for free in Vodafone. It has a 300 monthly call minutes, unlimited text messaging and a 500 MB Internet allowance. Aside from those networks, Three and Orange are also offering the mobile with a lot of different deals and contracts.

One of the most surprising feature that the mobile has is its 8 megapixel rear camera which is rare to mid range mobiles. It is capable of taking high definition videos at 1080p and at 30 frames per second. It has an LED flash to go with it so that it could still take decent shots even at a dark environment. In addition to that, the mobile also has a front camera which has a VGA quality. Just like the HTC One X, the mobile also features the HTC Video Pic function which would let the users take snapshots even when recording a video, making use of both modes at the same time.

The HTC Ville does have a lot of functionalities and also has an incredibly large internal storage. It sports a 16 gigabytes Internal memory which is more than enough to store media files and applications. It is quite disappointing though that the mobile doesn't have a slot for an external memory card which could have added to the already large memory of the handset.

The HTC Ville is a great mobile to have and has the features and the latest Android OS to boast. It even has a big internal memory and does come with the Audio Beats technology letting its users experience excellent music playback. The mobile is a mid range mobile and that would mean that it does not have a very expensive price making it worth the pay.
