We introduce HTC One V as a budget phone primarily because it is one of the cheapest android phones available in the market today. However, that does not keep it away from being a powerful phone packed with great features and apps.

Design and built:
No points for guessing that it resembles HTC Legend, largely However, slimming down of this phone grants it a refined look and gushes in ‘comfort’ for the user. Weighing just  HTC has welcomed the chin look back with this phone. The aluminum unibody design of this phone thrusts in durability for this phone. It banks on a Gorilla Glass display possessing a resolution of 480X800 display. It has great viewing angles and the blacks seem quite deep. However, the display quality is not at par with the latest handsets that lay a lot of emphasis on rendering rich color quality.

HTC One V instills the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rendering a great user experience. There is more to it.  It embodies HTC Sense 4.0 user interface making it highly functional. This phone with a single core processor is at par with the new double core processors. Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC that includes a 1GHz Scorpion CPU and Adreno 205 GPU fuels it with colossal strength.Though the phone boasts of a 4GB internal memory, only 1GB memory can be brought to use.The


battery life of the phone is the most purposeful feature for a buyer and HTC One V undoubtedly scores with its 1500 mAh battery.The Car app enables you to enjoy a larger interface. Besides, multitasking is possible with HTC Sense 4.0 at its store. Switching between apps is quick and unfussy.

 The 5MP autofocus rear-facing camera makes a hit by granting images that look detailed and crisp. ImageSense Technology instilled in this phone grants you the opportunity to take still photos while you are recording HD Video. However, the video quality is not up to the mark. Besides, the front camera is missing.The inclusion of Beats Audio is the testament to the fact that the audio quality that it grants is incredible.

Final Verdict:
If you are heading towards a phone with strong functionality and durability (without the hullabaloo), you can grab this phone without a doubt. Besides, it does not cost an arm and a leg.
