HTC One V review: Chin up

With the One series HTC are in their best shape in a while and we don't need to investigate who's to blame. The big bad One X and One S will proudly plead guilty as charged. But it would be unfair to deny the HTC One V its little share of credit.



To some the One V may seem like the point in the One series where HTC stopped inventing and started reusing. We personally don't mind a true classic being brought back to life. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support
  • 3.7" 16M color capacitive touchscreen with WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels)
  • Android OS v4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich HTC Sense 4.0
  • 1 GHz processor, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset
  • microSD card slot
  • Only 1GB of the 4GB internal storage is available to the user
  • No front-facing camera
  • Some competing smartphones have dual-core CPUs
  • Non-user-replaceable battery
  • No dedicated camera key

HTC One V

HTC has established a new bellwether for entry-level phones. Of course, though, that tempting price means having to settle for more limited horsepower. read more →

  • Superb build quality
  • Android 4.0 on an entry-level phone
  • Boots quickly
  • Last year's specifications
  • Misses out on some One series features
  • Processor is overwhelmed by apps and internet browsing

    A 5MP camera-toting Android 4.0-powered smartphone we can afford

    An all-round impressive handset, the HTC One V is a smartphone that has filtered down a selection of previously used specs to a new budget-friendly price tag, packaging it in an impressive and desirable shell in the process.



    Although those looking for a selection of groundbreaking specs might instead plump for the handset's HTC One X sibling or an iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S2 or Motorola Razr, for a possible first smartphone or a transition phone on the way to the big hitters, users could do far, far worse that this 3.7-inch screen, 5MP camera-packing powerhouse. read more →

    • Desirable design
    • Bright, responsive screen
    • Impressive camera
    • Strong browser and UI
    • Slightly poor filming
    • No Beats headphones
    • Cramped keyboard
    • Not dual-core
    • Just 4GB storage

    HTC One V Review

    Getting your hands on an HTC One V is going to cost you about $370 off-contract, which is definitely a reasonable price considering what you get in exchange. The smartphone has style and character that few devices in its price category can match, and we are pretty happy with it for the most part. The only things that we were unimpressed with were the poorly executed stock web browser, mediocre 720p video, and lack of sufficient on-board storage, but other than that, we have little to complain about. read more →

    • Compact and lightweight
    • Beautiful display
    • Android 4.0
    • Decent camera
    • Web browser needs more work
    • Way too little internal storage
    • Mediocre 720p video

    The Worst phone I ever use

    This is the Worst phone made by HTC. Please do not even think to buy it. Within six months it becomes slow like tortoise. and after that hands free port becomes dead, and Motherboard crashes. HTC service centre told me that Motherboard will not consider in warranty period and they told me about expense of  7000 INR.

    • Love at First site.
    • Then It will destroy your 19000 INR and whole life.
