Summary: Upon seeing that the HTC One V has an affordable price, consumers will want to try it right away. And they should. But if you crave a great CPU, the version on this phone won’t quench your thirst.
Summary: The HTC One V is priced at Rs.17,500 (MOP). At this price tag, it competes with the likes of Sony Ericsson Neo V and the HTC Rhyme . The dual-core Xperia U is priced a little cheaper , but we’ll reserve our comment on that phone till we review the unit. The One V clearly steamrolls its anagrammatic competitor, the Neo V. This phone is a worthy device in its own right, very much capable of handling your non-extinguishable smartphone desires.
Summary: HTC One V Review.HTC One V draws attention thanks to its protruding chin design, which is reminiscent of the HTC Legend. Unlike its elder siblings the One S and the One X, the device sports a comparably smaller 3.7-inch display, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Pros: Compact and lightweight, Beautiful display, Android 4.0, Decent camera
Cons: Web browser needs more work, Way too little internal storage, Mediocre 720p video
Conclusion: Looking at the competition, with the two main rivals being the Sony Xperia U and the Motorola MOTOLUXE, all costing around the same, we can safely say that the One V stacks up well. Sturdy build, great camera, generally smooth UI, while the Sony Xperia U is dual-core and we'd expect it to be snappier, for anyone looking for robust bit of hardware, the V could be the one to go for.
Pros: Great screen, Solid design, Great camera
Cons: No pinch overview, Single core processor, Camera flash could be stronger
Summary: The HTC One V is possibly the best mid-range Android phone you can buy at the moment. The new Sony Ericsson Xperia NXT range would be a better choice though, if only it offered ICS out of the box. The retro looks of the One V also work very well!
Pros: Aluminum unibody is rare in this price category, Built well, Surprisingly crisp display, Decent performance, Android ICS out of the box
Cons: Disappointing camera, Slight niggles with glass around earpiece
HTC One V Review: Can A Cheap Phone Really Be Cheerful?
1 June 2012
Excerpt: There are many cheap Android phones on the market today. Most of these devices will have a single core processor clocked at around 1GHz, and there won't be an awful lot of RAM to speak of either. This remains true of the HTC One V, but the latest budget phone to come out of the Taiwanese company has one key difference: it's running the latest version of Android.
