HTC one V hands on review

I got a chance to try out with HTC one V the new Ice Cream Sandwich phone from HTC and one of the few devices available with Android 4.0 ICS in the Indian markets. At the first look it is a very nicely built phone as one can expect from HTC and that too this one is “ONE”, it is slim and good to hold in hand, with that new Android ICS and HTC sense 4.0 it is good on the UI as well. The 3.7-inches screen is good and quite bright it’s good on the eyes, and has got a resolution of 480 x 800, add to that Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon 1 GHz CPU with Adreno 205 GPU makes the phone quite good on performance.


Multitasking if fine on the phone with the new ICS it’s a better experience, if your are first time using ICS it will take a bit of time to make full use of the 3 buttons instead of 4 earlier, but once you know how they work it is really is a good experience.
The down side of this phone is that it lacks the front facing camera but the rear one the primary camera is very good and with HTC ImageSense it has got even better, the flash is good and throws in a good amount of light. The storage is certainly not an issue with 4GB internal memory and the option of SD- card upto 32 GB you will not run out of memory.



The last thing to mention here is Beats Audio, which surely gives a very good experience when using earphones, the speaker of the phone while listening to music is not that good but the earphones cover it up with certainly the best sound quality on a smartphone. So overall the phone is good, little too expensive with some lacking things but it is HTC and its design covers the price and also the new HTC sense 4.0 on Android 4.0 is really one the best customizations of Android. Finally if you are looking for a phone under Rs.20,000 in the Indian market or some other part of the globe with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and you are ok with no front facing camera you better go for this.
