The HTC One SV carries on the Taiwanese firm's strong heritage in the contacts management arena allowing you to seamlessly import details from various sources into one compact list.
Not only is the One SV able to pull in contacts from the likes of Google, Facebook and your email accounts, it will also wiz through them joining up any duplications, such as your friends phone number stored in your Google account and their Facebook profile.
Annoyingly there's no support for Twitter in this contact love-in, which will frustrate those who prefer the 140 character system over the expansive blue book.
HTC's system is scarily efficient at matching your buddies up with their various accounts and if it's not completely sure the One SV will offer up suggestions on accounts which could be joined, which more often than not are spot on.
The "People" app is your one stop shop for all your acquaintances, but this can also be accessed from the "Phone" icon as both lead to the same application, with different tabs displaying depending on which one you've hit.
Pictures of your contacts are displayed next to their names in an attractive vertical list, if the One SV has managed to pull one through from an account, and you'll find it's not just the photo which has been mined by the handset.
Facebook photo galleries and status updates are also pulled through to contact's cards, allowing you to get an overview of their life without having to launch a dedicated app.
There's also a record of all the calls and messages you've exchanged with each person – handy if you want to keep track of your stalking tendencies.
Adding a contact is also a piece of cake, just in case you run into a new pal at the bus stop, with a simple "add" button at the top of the screen in the People app taking you to a form to add in various details.
As we've mentioned above you can access the dial pad from the Phone and People applications if you need to bash out a number.
Alternatively you can head on over to a contact's card and tap the number you wish to call them on – all very straight forward.
Signal wise the HTC One SV held up well, although the 4G strength unsurprisingly dwindled the further we came away from London, but thankfully 3G was waiting to take over without fuss.
Call quality was decent and we were able to hear our compatriot clearly on the other end and vice versa – even in busier locations with a lot of noise pollution.
