HTC One V review

 

The HTC One V is the mid-range smartphone to beat

Sleek unibody design ; Fun camera control functions ; Free 25GB Dropbox storage

4GB storage ; No physical control for camera ; Could be more responsive

HTC One V - Pocket-lint

 

Great design for a phone at this level and it's nice to have the latest software, but the limitations lie in the old hardware that powers it. A great phone,

Compact, nice design and construction, latest software, microSD card slot

Old hardware means it's a little slow, some missing features could have been incorporated

Overall there is a lot to like about the HTC One V. It is a well-designed phone, small in modern terms, but still giving you enough space to interact with the display, accepting the fact that you'll have to live with doing more zooming in webpages if...

HTC One V review

 

A 5MP camera-toting Android 4.0-powered smartphone we can afford

Desirable design ; Bright, responsive screen ; Impressive camera ; Strong browser and UI

Slightly poor filming ; No Beats headphones ; Cramped keyboard ; Not dual-core ; Just 4GB storage

Sibling of the quad-core powerhouse that is the HTC One X, the HTC One V might not boast the groundbreaking array of specs handed to its market-topping counterpart, but it is a handset that will push the boundaries of the lower mid-level smartphone...

Great build quality and a fantastic camera, but better-specified phones are available for only a little more money on contract

HTC One V review

 

This £250 (and under) smartie is our current darling for best all-round value and a premium feel – so where's the compromise?

Vibrant and snapper-friendly, the One V is one of the best budget phones around

HTC One V review

 

The design of the HTC One V is quite different from the HTC One X and HTC One S. It has a much squarer look and a return of HTC's 'curved-chin' which the firm says makes the phone easier to hold and is a 'distinctive accessory to your life'. Our...

The HTC One V is simply the best budget Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone on the market. For a mere £200 you get a solid handset with a great screen, the latest software and reasonable hardware and reliable battery life.

HTC One V Review: In Depth

 

The HTC One V is the baby of the new HTC One range, but a budget phone it isn't. With a handsome spec-sheet, the One V also offers a metal chassis, 1GHz of processing power and most impressively, a…

Great screen ; Solid design ; Great camera

No pinch overview ; Single core processor ; Camera flash could be stronger

The 1GHz processor clearly isn’t up there with the very best of them, but we found it perfectly acceptable to work with. More irritating, perhaps, is that there is just 4GB of built in storage, though a microSD can be used to add more so even that is...
