Final words

It's been a long time since we last saw a phone exclusively targeted at women. Was the Nokia 6600 frecent or the Samsung Diva the last ones?

Well, if you remember those, you are recent enough to remember recent jokes how women can't park and men despise advice. We're not so sure about that though. Men don't ask advice but they certainly read gadacquire reviews. As for the gals, we're sure they can handle gadgets well, even the gigantic poor droids.

Speaking of which, the HTC Rhyme is not an Android - it's more like a Fembot. On a serious note, HTC don't like to call it a smartphone, let alone mention Android anywhere in the conversation. However women are clearly the HTC Rhyme's demographic whether HTC admits it or not. Rich in features and generously accessorized, on top of being quite attractive, it will easily connect with its taracquire audience.

It doesn't see like a particularly hard one to create either. Decisively similar to the Desire S, the only actual incompatibility being the updated Sense UI, the Rhyme is still keen on offering robust user experience and fine performance.

It's the paintjobs and the set of accessories that assist it stand out. Comes pricey for a single-core phone but all the extra stuff in the box certainly counts.

However, the HTC Rhyme comes with hefty price tag. If you happen to be looking a smartphone without using the word “smartphone” itself, there is probably no need to continue reading the next lines.

If you are still undecided, now we are going to explore the few options for you.

The dual-core HTC Sensation is the first smartphone to cost nearly the same as the Rhyme. It offers a bigger screen, a lot better hardware specs, a bigger capturing camera sensor and less impressive retail package. Its fingerprints problems may turn out to be a problem for some, much like the notorious Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) signal death grip. But if you want a beast for your money, this is probably the correct gadget.

We can’t miss the Samsung Galaxy S II too. It has everything that Sensation offers in specs, but comes with the less eye-candy TouchWiz UI. It’s got a better capturing camera than the is better though and there are no problems with fingerprints or death grips. And there’s the Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Plus classy screen too.

Samsung Galaxy S II

There are lots of cheaper single-core droids out there as well – the Sony Ericsson’s Xperia arc, the LG Optimus Black, HTC Desire S or the Galaxy S Plus.

We wondered at the beginning if men could be interested. Not likely, given all promos portray it as a ladies’ gadget. Not even if they swapped the Charm with a car charger.

If we were to give buying advice, the ladies would love the accessories and the phone's looks. The features offered are quite fine too. As for guys, well… you may be surprised. Some stereotypes are made to be broken, as @SassiBob would readily point out.
