HTC One SV storage capacity

Unfortunately, the HTC One SV has a relatively small storage capacity of 8GB, of which about 6GB is available, considering the Android operating system uses about 2GB. Luckily, there is a microSD card slot under the back cover of the phone, which offers space for memory cards up to a maximum of 32GB. Additionally, One SV owners get 25GB in free Dropbox storage, which mostly makes up for the small internal memory. If you are true games fan, the 8GB internal memory storage will be a bit small, but for normal use of the HTC One SV, it will create few disadvantages.

Apps on the HTC One SV

Because the HTC One SV has the Android operating system, you can download many free and paid apps from the Play Store. HTC also has a number of applications pre-installed on the One SV, including the flashlight. This handy app gives off clear light, with three different settings. Another app that comes included on the HTC One SV is the mirror, which uses the 1.6 megapixel camera on the front. There is also another application that shows the different types of weather very nicely.

Watch movies with HTC Watch

Watching movies is simple and inexpensive with the One SV by means of the HTC Watch app. With this online video service, you can rent or buy movies and TV shows. You can also watch trailers before you choose to buy or rent a movie. First, you have to register for an HTC Watch account and you have to have a credit card in order to buy or rent movies. Via this HTC app, you can download many new movies at a cost starting at € 0.05 cents. Then the movies are played in HTC’s extensive video player. HTC’s online video service is unfortunately not available in all countries.

HTC Car app

For those that like to use their smartphone on the road, HTC has pre-installed the Car app, converting the One SV into an extensive navigation system. When the HTC Car app is activated, the smartphone’s interface is transformed and all apps appear that are handy on the road, such as navigation (via Google Maps), music, radio and of course calling. The HTC Car apps are shown extra-large so that you are not as distracted while driving. This way you have everything that you need at hand en route and the other phone functions are temporarily set aside.
