Summary: I've had the ONE V since August. It was a great phone and I was very happy with performance. The issue of battery life was greatly increased by a setting for WIFI. Under WIFI select menu, then advanced. Select the option for WIFI while the phone is in sleep. By turning off WIFI while in sleep, my standby time increased from 1 day to 5 days. Now to the problem with data. Had great performance with my unlocked phone that was built for China use.
Summary: when i got the phone, there was a lot of bloat / regional crapware, but unlocking it got rid of it. even with the regional stuff, it was working fine and smooth. love the phone and it's small size. i feel smartphones these days are getting too big to be comfortable in a pant's front pocket. one thing i didn't like about the grey is that the color of the rubberized areas are a shade off of the grey color of the body. otherwise, solid phone.
Summary: In general I am pretty satisfied with the phone. It is mechanically strong. It feels good in hand. Has very good audio. The battery time is not very good. Other problems which i encounter are probably software related: - The machine response becomes slow and every few days I need to restart it. - The audio recorder does not record phone conversations. Most Play-store recorders record only one direction of the phone call.
Summary: Little bit disappointed with the camera and the sound cannot be turned up loud enough. I don't use the camera much, but I will pay closer attention to those issues when purchasing my next phone.
