HTC One V Hands-on Review
In addition to the high-end HTC One X, mid-range HTC One S there is one more device HTC announced today. The HTC One V is the mid-range model, coming with a Super LCD  3.7” WVGA display aluminum chassis and single-core 1GHz processor. It will run Android 4.0 and will have Sense 4.0 on top of it straight out of the box. The camera is 5-megapixel one but will feature the same ImageChip dedicated processor as the rest of the One series device, leading supposedly to improved pictures. 

The unit which was available on the Press event floor was not working, so unfortunately we could not experience the device. 

The availability is the same as the rest of the One series phones – something in April. No US carrier has claimed exclusivity or announced it will carry it just yet.

Why would you want such a low-end smartphone so badly?

kudos to the kid who choose a phone based on his needs and budget.. unlike some who choose because of fashion..

go on and give me thumbs down all you want, all i ask is just for you too look at the mirror.. i'm sure majority of us are buying phones because it is the next big thing or because it's a magical thing and so on..

I buy the current high-end phones because I love technology and experimenting with newer and improved hardware. If I, like many, cared about the next big thing then we would be obsessing over every new installment in the iPhone lineup.

how is this a mid-range? in 2012, mid-range devices have dual-cores and more than 512 ram.. do not be fooled by the sleek design, which sadly is a waste.

Why are you bashing the phone. Well I take that back because HTC always screws up and prices devices so high. But I have high hopes for this phone.

Really? The Galaxy S advance is midranged but it is still expinsive, I don't want a phone with this extreme performance. I'm 15. I don't need a phone with extreme performance. As i said, THIS PHONE WILL FIT MY NEEDS!!!!

the V's price is currently at $420. by the time the V gets released, the GS Advance's price will drop to the V's price group. with a single core and 512gh of RAM, this phone will stop receiving updates by next year and many apps will not be able work. word of advice, if you want to update your device, don't settle for less than a dual core. even the Xperia U has a dual-core, proves how a rip off this phone is.

yes, official pricing is out. there's a reason they categorized it as mid-range you know.

Well HTC kinda failed then. They need to make this device 40% cheaper.

In 2012: quad-core is high-end; dual core is mid-range and single core is low-end. It's exactly what HTC is doing, one of each to meet every needs. I don't know why people call that one mid-range. It will certainly fit the needs of some, but it's still low-end. Added to that, 4GB of ROM no Micro SD and no front facing camera... certainly not mid-range.

Hey i don't like this phone but it doesn't mean i should tell people not to buy it.
I believe in ''FREEDOM OF CHOICE''
and i totally agree with this bayusuputra.
