Right from the time the Rhyme was just a rumour doing it’s rounds on the Internet (it was known as the Bliss, back then), it was categorized as a phone for the fairer sex, owing to its pastel trim and the fact that it would ship with a ‘charm’, an accessory popular with women. Once HTC launched the Rhyme though, they’ve steered clear from any categorization. You won’t find any words like ‘women’ or ‘feminine’ anywhere on their site as they’ve kept it as gender neutral as possible. Now, since we aren’t exactly fashionistas over here at Tech2, we’ll go about doing what we do best, reviewing products and telling it like it is.
A well built handset
A solid 5MP shooter
Just when you thought Sense couldn't get any better
The charm in action
To find out what sort of focus groups HTC used when coming up with this concept, we asked a bunch of women between the age group of 20 to 30 years and here’s the feed back we got. While most of them found the idea interesting, none of them found it practical, while one cringed at the idea of it. The ‘Clearwater’ colour didn’t go down too well, either with most of them as they all eyed the purple one. So, HTC, if you’re listening, get the purple one over to India, if you plan of selling any at all. The charm then comes off as nothing more than a gimmick, which doesn't seem to be working too well.
The revamped music player is nothing short of brilliant. The Rhyme supports the following media formats - .aac, .amr, .ogg, .m4a, .mid, .mp3, .wav, .wma, which is a good list. A lock screen widget is present; giving you basic controls along with album art and similar option are available for the home screen as well. The player is dead simple to navigate and we now have the option to update the album art or you can choose to stream it to another device through DLNA. Sound enhancements, include SRS and Equalizer presets. Unlike most bundled ear-phones, which never make it out of their packaging, these are very good and fit snugly in your ear, despite the odd shape. The hands-free also comes with line-in controls for media and a mic for phone calls. HTC have used flat-type cables, which is tangle free and more durable as well.
Excellent music and video player
