HTC One SV lands, priced at Php17,840

While treading the halls of the SM Megamall Cyberzone, we noticed a new comer from the Taiwanese firm’s stable –the HTC One SV which currently retails for Php17,840 when bought in cash. It can also be had through a 12-month installment payment term for Php19,990 (MemoXpress).

If you notice on its specs sheet, the One SV isn’t exactly a head-turner in terms of its configuration. However, it’s worth pointing out that this mid-ranged handset is the most affordable LTE-enabled phone in the market to date. Its closest competition, the Sony Xperia V LTE, is still above Php22K.

We spotted the HTC One SV at MemoXpress and HTC concept store at SM Megamall Cyberzone.

    • not so good guy says:

      salamat sa suhestiyon. pero c’mon! di lahat parehas sayo sa mga likes nila. di lahat gusto samsung.

      ayos yang opinion mo…. as long as you don’t shove it down in other people’s throat.

    • Ex S3 owner says:

      Yup it’s ugly. Because it’s a BEAST in terms of performance and functionality! Have you ever seen a beautiful beast?

  5. Lon says:

    Samsung galaxy express LTE na sya, 14k sa kimstore kung hindi ako nagkakamali :)

  6. batmandroid says:

    an 8k omega HD can beat this phone anytime. with that price i rather pick s3 or note2.

    • Yusuf says:

      You really can’t see it, do you? The SV is a mid-range phone released by HTC for people who want LTE but not blow up their pockets. Will that Omega HD provide me LTE?

    • batmandroid says:

      LTE? who needs LTE if the current HSPA/+ network is still unstable. And besides LTE by Smart and Globe is available where? Makati? Lets be realistic dude.

  7. Yusuf says:

    Honestly, still not a good buy. HTC may be considered as one of the kings when it comes to building flagships but when it comes to mid-range (and low-range) phones, they suck big time. If you want an LTE phone at an affordable price, the Galaxy Express and Xperia V is for you.

    • Rem says:

      Agree, I’ll just save some more and buy the V instead for better camera, waterproof body and higher res screen. :)

  8. not the cheapest LTE says:

    Cheapest lte phone? ASCEND P1 LTE and ZTE T81 are cheaper
