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

I have bought my Htc one v for 3months now but am only getting edge instead of 3G so I could not connect to google store and some applications. what should I do plz.
I've had mine for about two years now, and it's time for an update. With only 4GB of memory, I just don't have enough space. On top of that, not enough RAM so I'm stuck on ICS and can't move up to JB. The BEATS audio is pointless and it's weighted down with so much extra stuff from Google that I don't need/use that I can't delete unless I root my phone. The phone is decent, but it looks like the poor idiot child compared to even an iPhone.
On the flipside though, the phone has great battery life and charges really fast. It also has the upside of using a microUSB so I can literally walk into a store and buy a charging cable for $5. If that. Or scrounge from other tech I have lying around.
As the phone does get weighted down, it will start to run slower and I've had to use other apps over the user apps to run simple things like internet and texts because they just aren't usable. I've had the problem of having to run another texting app just so I could delete texts because the regular android app that they have would crash every time I opened it. Apparently a problem that is common for it. Did I mention the Contacts app won't open at all? Yeah, it kinda sucks.
All in all, this is a great phone if you don't need something too fancy. Camera's decent but don't think you're going to have fun snapchatting away. Phone won't update to JB so if you're okay with being stuck on ICS, go right ahead.
If you're not a techie and just looking for something a bit shiny, this is a great phone for you. If you love getting the newest thing out there, just don't get this, you'll be disappointed.
