|Bottom line|| |
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.
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.
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.
The HTC One V's premium design is fashionable but demanding Android fans should steer clear of this phone's poor performance.
