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.
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
Excerpt: The affordable HTC One V comes with an ICS-flavored treatment, a Sense 4.0a UI, and a 5-megapixel camera with BSI sensor and F2.0 aperture. Interested to know how it fared in our testing? Find out more after the jump!
Pros: Excellent design and solid build quality, Crisp 3.7-inch LCD screen, Refined Sense 4.0a UI, Affordable price, Decent battery life
The final handset in HTC's trifecta of One-branded phones, but how does it compare with its bigger, beefier brothers?

Summary: I'm completely in love with a number of things about the One V. Its design looks fantastic, feels hard-wearing, and is distinctive enough to stand out from the crowd when compared to most of the other handsets in stores today. It's also one of the most affordable ways to grab a handset running Android 4.0, even if it is shrinkwrapped in Sense, though software inclusions like ImageSense do make up for this somewhat.
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, The Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) device has a 1GHz single core processor and a 5-megapixel camera. The imager’s software is similar to the One X and One S though, it has a startup speed of 0.7 seconds and autofocus of 0.2 second.
Pros: +Solid Exterior, +Decent Camera, +Beats Audio, +Excellent battery life
Cons: -A faint yellow tint on the display, -No front facing camera, -Transceiver, -Headset, -Charger, -USB Cable
