most things about this phone are good. eg the screen is great, battery life is good, it has an SD card slot and GPS. etc. the only reason I can't stabs it is because it's so slow, and has slow slow RAM (and hardly any of it is free)
I have installed a stable and relatively fast custom ROM and over clocked it to 1.5ghz, and it is still too slow. look elsewhere if you're thinking of buying this.

Power off your device- DO NOT PRESS POWER AND SELECT POWER OFF. THIS IS STAND BY MODE!!
Hold the power button, pop up will read "to restart your phone hold power for 3.2.1- etc.. let go of the power button once the bottom lights stop blinking and the screen goes black
Phone will reset and turn back on, when you see the htc sign pop up on the screen, press and hold both the volume DOWN and the power buttons. The will reset into its bootloader allowing you to factory reset. This method does not require even root. Just patience trying to throw it into the bootloader because trying to keep the phone off is a pain. Holding power for about a minute WILL turn it off (LOL) From there just holding volume down before powering it on will gain bootloader access-
If you have saved your contacts to your sim you wont loose them--
HTC Offers official bootloader unlock methods with step by step instructions for anyone that's looking to achieve root.
HTC One V is a sluggish phone- Weighing it down of course is it small CPU and only 1 GB Internal available to us users.
Antutu Benchmark- With Overclock to 1704mhz and Wiped system was in the high 6000- at the very best. Stock with nothing done to it, phone scores 5139 (just ran it)
Beats Audio is a very nice feature and as a first time user of ANYTHING Beats, It was a great equalized sound.
Multitasking: Is non existent- Keep to one task with this one.
Camera- Best feature.. Look at the camera comparison chart- This camera is amazing, the vivid colours is why I still keep it on me even though I've upgraded-
With all that being said- Modding this phone, is an absolute terrible idea especially in US with the lack of North American roms-- besides that, not one rom allows proper use of the DEFAULT camera.. ALL but shpongle (which will only allow Google Play App cams to work)
Body of this phone was very unique and felt very comfortable while holding with a sleek curved bottom.
I successfully flashed a number of Roms to this phone and after finding out the camera didn't work, despite how much I hated sense, had to revert.
To restore your phones speed, you must remember that "after a couple of months of use" just like a computer it must be cleaned. This was my problem as well but quickly got remedied by-
Rooting the phone, getting SDMaid or a cleaning program of your choice. Cleaning the Cache, System and Dalvik. after this you will see the same speed as when purchased..
All in all this is an sub par phone. Be prepared for some lag however and the browser along with a lot of apps will run slow.. If this is your first time trying Android, don't base the way it handles of this device as it displays Androids capabilities poorly
Great design and decent features, however performance after couple of months using is dramatic! :/
my cell broadcast cannot be turned off...please help me fix it.....and also the settings cannot be edited.....am able to change and add channels only....

Nice phone. Good apps that works perfectly. My suggestions to people that complain about when the phone doesn't work well. Please, close the Apps you don't use at a particular time and enjoy your device's speed.
evrything is best but battery backup and some application like whatsaap and many are no running properly .....so conclusion is that htc not the best one
