|Bottom line|| |
The HTC One V's premium design is fashionable but demanding Android fans should steer clear of this phone's poor performance.
Demanding Android fans won't like the HTC One V's slow performance but its premium design and low, no-contract price makes it a steal on Virgin Mobile.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
As the lower-cost cousin to HTC's higher-end One X and One S, the One V won't win the processor speed race, but it comes loaded with a few surprises of its own.
