You didn't think that after reviewing the HTC One X and HTC One S, we will disregard their little brother – the HTC One V, did you? Well, here it is, folks! We have taken this little munchkin for a spin and we cannot wait to share our experience with you...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

Congratulations my friend :)
Have a nice time with your V ....
By the way ...
Yesterday, I have tried the One V on my car's amplifier, the same system I have used to run with my old Wildfire S.
The sound is -UNBELIEVABLE- really, the bass is VERY strong, the sound is GREAT.
But don't use the original music player it sounds very bad, I have used PowerAmp and N7 player. Both are great.

Everyday I love One V more and more..

Looks like Xperia neo V is better than HTC One V (comparison:http://goo.gl/fX9GP). Anyone buying this phone should have a look at Neo V. The only problem with Neo V is small inbuilt memory.

One V feels much solid than the Neo, also I don't want to buy a brand that is about to die!! there will be no more Sony Ericsson, next generation is Sony !
BTW, the comparison is very bad, the One V have a radio, and the camera have soooo many options they didn't mention, the One V doesn't have a compass.
This comparison is way too bad guys.

hi guys...
i'm planning to buy a phone, mid-range, by the end of this month.
so i wanted to confirm that are all the issues regarding the phone are resolved or are there still any discrepancies, and my main concerns are about the issues like:
1. the phone becoming dead and not switching on ever.
2. the emerging yellow spots on the screen
3. the phone getting heated up quite early

are these issues being taken care of by htc or should i go for any other phone?
and if so, which phone should i consider??

pls helo me guys....

Dear, I have this phone from April month, it is working like a Swiss clock!
1- Haven't got dead (yet) :) and it lasts for 2 days if you dont use wifi a lot.
2- *** NO *** the screen is completely GREAT.
3- It gets heated a bit and you feel the heat early because the aluminum body, while making calls it is almost normal, while using wifi and heavy apps it gets a bite wormer. But it is ok, I use it in almost everything, from a flashlight to facebook and gaming and everything. But i must tell you that the phone is not a Ferrari ok, it is fast enough for your daily use, big gamed run ok, big apps run ok, you have 1GB for applications and this is more than enough.

As a conclusion, I see this phone is great, if you need a mid-range phone and you are not pushing the device to the limits, go ahead you will love it.

Good luck my friend

Can not choose phone Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 or HTC One V

The main differences in benefits are:

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

• Multiple processor cores Dual core
• Lots of memory (RAM) 786 MB
• Integrated compass
• Video output
• near field communication (NFC)
• Secondary Camera 0,3 MP
• Positioning Glonass


• Android version: 4.0.3
• Very good construction

in conclusion the Ace 2 is a much better technology, but the material and operating android 4 of the One V perhaps be a catalyst to the final order. As i reading Ace 2 might not be able to get version of Android 4 and up.

I am experiencing difficulty when receiving files through bluetooth in htc one v. It's showing "not enough space in micro sd". I think the files are coming to phone memory. Then, how I change the received file location to micro SD card?. In one v, only 100 mb(phone memory) reserved for data. So it's a big issue whie receivig files through bluettoth. Please help me...

Dear you can't set the SD to recieve bluetooth files, only on the phone memory which is 100mb, but you can make the phone memory empty by moving everything to SD manually, I have the phone four months ago and I have sent and recieved millions of files :) and never got any problems, if you need any help please feel free to ask and I will help as much as I can.

Good luck :)

HTC One V is the worst phone that i ever come across.. it keep reboot when i m making or receive call for many times.. the BT is so noisy that the other party cant hear me. I had changed at least 3 times for 1 to 1 exchange the problem still there. I am asking for a full refund... hope they will approve and let my life move on.. waste alot of my time on this phone.. :(

Amazingly no reviewer talks about the bugs of Sense UI. HTC has changed the android multitasking which is a pain in the ass. Sense kills apps in background very aggressively(even with huge amount of RAM). This is being done to achieve a hassle free & lag free experience with better battery life. However, none of these has been achieved in any of HTC devices. All the HTC devices struggle for battery life & UI lags. The webpage reloading in HTC phones while toggling between apps is another major issue no reviewer talks about. Dont think these Smartphone reviewers are SMART. May be I should become a "Smartphone Reviewer".. :)

Could end up being the best smartphone of 2013. If you are thinking about getting this phone, you'll definitely want a case to protect it. Here's a list of the cases on Amazon with the biggest discounts and best reviews: amzn.to/1ayqnnq. Did all the research for you.
