Excerpt: The previous smartphone which I had before One V was Wildfire. I paid 220 euros for it, after two years i decided to upgrade to One V, for which I also paid 220 euros. Truth to be said I was more satisfied with Wildfire than i am with my one V now. Although they both tend to lag awfully, One V has a lot more software bugs. Maybe because my phone use pattern has also changed a bit, maybe thats why.
Excerpt: It has software issues in it. It lags with some apps particularly with the messages app. It takes ages to load the contents and to open a message I need to clear the RAM. Apps like Google+ and Facebook crash very frequently. A very good phone for calling, browsing the web (it has a very good stock browser), checking emails. But it just can't perform very well with games. My overall experience is good.
Summary: I've had this phone for about a year now and as others have said the problem with the phone is it's slow. The phone is ok but do not expect it to be as fast as more expensive phones with a better processor. It does not have a dual core processor even, only a single. Most budget smartphone manufacturers now try and hide that in their phone specs or they try to not list it at all so you have to dig to get the info sometimes.
Summary: I basically use my phone to make calls and send messages and this phone is great for that purpose. Needed to get a smart phone but didnt want something too complicated or expensive so this was a good purchase.
Excerpt: At 1st the phone was awesome, but later it lags like anything. LOADING time for a msg will irritate u & CAMERA is not good as they sat, it below avg, BATTERY its not that bad when compared, STORAGE they should improve their storage.
Summary: This is a great phone, but freezes at times and for some strange reason, it doesnt read my memory card sometimes and restarts on its own a few times. In the future, i would buy a phone of the same brand, but maybe an upgraded version.
Excerpt: HTC One V is a nice phone with good battery life and camera but it hangs a lot. Phone started hanging within 15 days of buying. I can't do my most of the things because of hanging problem of the phone.
Excerpt: Android apps like SticknFind or Ardrone don't work on it, voice dial is a nightmare can recognize the difference between names even totally different sounding ones . reception poor, where my old Motorola would have 3 bars and the HTC only one, crashes often.
