Summary: The HTC One V is the third member of HTC’s One trilogy , filling in the budget slot below the One X and One S , which we reviewed in the last couple of weeks. It’s less of a mold-breaking design for the company than its big brothers though, with the distinct chin and unibody construction that has won it plaudits in the past encasing a fairly standard 3.7-inch display. For some, though, phones with 4-inch or greater displays are just too much.
Pros: Industrial design is beautiful and hard-wearing, Sense 4 is a dramatic improvement, Great build quality, Battery life is good
Cons: Some odd ergonomic decisions, Low-end specs, Sense doesn't fit with the cleaner Android 4.0 design
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
