pro:
-price
-very good camera
-allum case, lcd glass,unique design(not cheap feeling compared to samsung)
-with ics
-beats audio(only works with headset)
-reasonable speed(browsing is great
-good battery life( as compared to some droid phones, multitasking last dis fone by 8-10 hrs considering games,calls,sms,browsing simultaneously)

con:
-fixed battery
-minor lagging issues(esp. games)
-music apps sucks
-speakers sucks(beats only works with headset)
-earpiece lacks loud(barely hears talking. i use my headset for a call.)
-very simple entry level fone.(for techies, this is not recommended.)

awesome phone. bought it for 17,300 a couple of weeks back. the UI rocks. games run smoothly. you won't even realize that it has only a processor speed of 1G. never slows down, except at one point when I was running 8 very heavy apps together, but even then the lag was almost negligible. sound-hound is great. SNS integration is too good. the GPS locks very fast. battery is a little above average, so squeezing a couple of days worth of juice is no big deal. the keyboard's good, doesn't have the swype gesture though. and there are some really irritating apps(one of them is plurk) which keep running in the background even after disabling and force stopping. overall, the best mid.range android ICS out there.

As I can tell, you didn't experienced any big problem or failure that need service intervention (as some people had)?

all the problems except the yellow spots are fake. Please ignore them. Go and check out it a proper mobile shops such as vijay sales, magnet,etc. They will guide you properly. There was yellow spots problem in one v which were shipped in april but all that got replaced. Now there is no such problem you can buy this phone with no doubts. i own this phone from 24th april and i do not have any problem with this phone. please ignore all the unrealistic comments like i got it replaced twice o thrice. They are not guiding the cell buyers properly. I am very satisfied with my htc one v.

I have bought this Handset a month ago. What I found is below.

Lets talk about good things:
1) Excellent Camera quality
Several features in camera are awesome.
Excellent HDR video recording.

I played my HDr video recording in My 42inch Lg Tv,
Believe me I was amazed. Video and images were alive.

2) Beat audio doesn`t impress me however not bad.
3) Appplications works well with provided processor
4) Processor for gaming is not too Bad.

Bad Things

1) Battery Backup comes first, It fails here
Very much disappointed with the backup.
Not even stands for 5 to 6 hrs (talktime).

2)HTC one v Sync software S-KS.

They should Improve.
They are wayback in terms of Nokia Ovi Suits & others.

Sorry I do not know others if exists(Suits).


Overall I am not satifised with the Handset.
I do not recommed this Handset to anyone.

Thanks
Kundan

> In reply to bilal kaleem @ 2012-06-11 00:04 from u1tW - click to readhow big is that yellow spot? is it really problem? I'm planning to buy this phone, so I would like to check that.. I'm from Serbia. Are you from India? Is that problem generally in India, or in whole world? As I can see, most of problems are reported from that region (or I'm maybe wrong?)

I agree that some of these one v and also one x have problem and go to dead after a few days usage. I have mine replaced one to one, and the new one works great! Love it.

However, there are yellow spots at the bottom corners. But never mind, afraid that if I replace, I may receive a faulty one :(

To sum up, this phone works great if no faulty. Appearance and material are good. ICS. Camera and music are great. A bit laggy when run some heavy apps and games. But it totally worth the money!!

Tip: Check the phone throughout before buying. Check yellow spots (open internet browser to check), camera, music, phone function. If you need powerful phone, go for one x/s instead.

Hope it helps!

P/S: Use Dolphin for internet browser, MX Player for media, QuickPic for photos, and ES File Explorer!! They are superb!
