Year old One V
Charlie_boy has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Good entry level phone for light usage with Premium feel.
But this is not gonna be your phone for the long run. You'd feel it's lacking in the inside. Hardware is on the low end, which translates to slower performance.

HTC ONE v
Bigbear-420 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Low internal memory, very slow internet, virtually unusable. Other than that this phone has some solid features, the body and design are amazing- Camera is amazing too high contrast and very vivid colours. The phone uses very low speeds for its processor and ram but for general use like, camera, texting, calling . Go for this-
I would like to add one more crucial detail, I still walk around with this phone for the camera but not only for the camera. Although previously ridiculed, The sound quality on the headset with BEATS is very noticeable and extremely good- My headphones were over 150 and blow the specs off beats (as do most). Some people just don't know good sound and once they make a formal decision whether they like a certain phone or not their opinion tends to become bias... Despite the previous reviews the battery take forever to recharge.

Overall the phone is quite well built. The phone might suffer from performance issues if you try to stick to the stock ROM & you use your phone heavily like gaming, using Opera Mobile etc. I would suggest to root your phone & install a good Custom ROM.

HTC One V... great deception
joruzani has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Ok first of all I have to say I always really research whenever Im buying a phone... or almost anything. So I do in this one... but not enough.
The phone has an excellent build, being almost uni-body helps a lot and I really like its aluminium.
Before going further let me explain my deception:
Im an audiophile so I want at least a decent gear, in this case the beats audio is just a joke, a very bad joke. The audio quality from the speaker is good... for a phone speaker, the sad part is when you plug in a decent set of earphones or headphones. It has a noise all the time when playing any sound: music, games, a call... even when you turn up and down the volume.
Some people say just play the music louder and you wont notice. Well Im sure that people that are just fine with mp3 wont, but anyone with decent earphones and good hearing will. Moreover, audiophiles that only have flac or any other lossles format and good to high-end pieces will be horrified when playing music in this phones. I almost cry T.T
Apart from that there is the yellow dots problem:
I have had replaced mine 4 times, and all of them have yellow dots on the corners, being the most prominent the down ones. Some say it glue and it will be gone with time, I hope so. btw Im not from India (some claim only devices sold there have this problem).
In other aspects it behaves quite good, it can get laggy some times but for the hardware it has its normal, it wont get annoying but will make you want a faster one......

HTC One V Review.
ameeronev has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The HTC One V is a smartphone with a 3.7" SLCD2 screen with 480x800 pixels of resolution, 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage. These specs, together with the 5MP camera on the back place it at the entry level of the new One lineup from HTC, but the HTC One V is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is always a good thing. Moreover, the phone features the new HTC ImageChip, which allows for all the good camera stuff in the new One line, like low-light capabilities, and the ability to shoot pictures while you film a video

Brilliant mid-end smartphone in high-end case
Jon2106 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
When you first get the One V the eco-friendly packaging gives you the feeling of getting your hands on to a high-end smartphone, and that's exactly what it looks and feels like. The setup process was long and painful, but it was fairly easy to do. The screen is very clear and text appears crisp and colors vivid, but it isn't close to the iPhone 4S retina display. The overall feel of the Sense UI is pretty snappy, it keeps up pretty well with your swiping and zooming and tapping. The web browser works well, but heavy pages may be laggy when loading. A feature that I found very handy is the tap-to-show flash content. The music player comes with SoundHound, but the app itself is below par when compared to other phones. When it comes to the camera - it's absolutely poop. The picture comes out oversaturated, like we were living in some kind of a rainbow land. HD video is acceptable for quick shots, but still...
The phone keeps track of your day very nicely and reminds you of stuff. HTC Sense 4 also has some small but helpful touches - in the morning, it opens a weather widget to the lock screen, it makes the ringtone quieter when you move the phone and so on.
The main advantages of the phone against its competitors in class are its screen, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the brilliant HTC Sense and the smooth user experience.

HTC One V Review
Fluxy has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The HTC one V is a good phone for the price, with it you get a Single core 1 GHz processor, an Adreno 205 GPU, and a 3.7 inch display by 480x800. You also get a 5 MP camera, with LED flash and autofocus. In terms of battery life, you get a good 1½ days out of it, with general use. With heavy use you can just about make it through a day. The build quality is amazing, perhaps one of the best built phones iv'e ever had. Well done HTC! The touch is responsive and quick, along with the fast processor. And to top its all off, it comes with the newest Android 4, Ice Cream Sandwich. All in all for what you get for the price, i would definitively recommend this phone. If you ever wanted more, either the HTC One S or X depending if your prepared to spend more.

HTC One V
vimalprakash.a has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
HTC One V is a good model of cost 18000 INR, you can get even cheaper based on your bargaining skills up to 17300 INR. Added advantage of HTC One V gives you Android 4.0, 1GH processer, Easy UI, 3.7inc display, Camera effects and features. Major drawbacks are phone gets heat in a quick time, battery isn't that good, Call audio output is poor, Camera is quite decent but not up the expectation (having noice in images). Over all HTC One V is a good one but not a perfect one.
