Srinivas, 19 Apr 2012i'v heard that there is no GPS navigation in this phone because there is no digital compass, i... moreDigital compass is a magnetic sensor that senses the manetic field of the earth or any magnetic field. I don't think navigation applications will have problems because of the sensor absence.
If you don't need to know real directions so you don't neet the digital compass.
If you don't need applications that tell you north south east west, or applications that measures degrees or so, you don't need the digital compass.
For me, I don't care, yes it is nice and helpful but I don't think many of us needs to use it.
how do i get the weather widget that used to work on sensation and other 3.0 devices??? the locksreen and wallpapers which change accordin to weather.. i don get it on my one v!!

What a compass does is that it'll align the map according to your position..So if in case you turn left the map will turn accordingly but here you'll have turn the map yourself via your fingers ;) Hope that helped..
Odd HTC advert. Are they selling phones or therapy
Guys, check if your HTC One V has a yellow/brownish discoloration in the LCD at the edges (right below the HTC Logo on top and above the touch buttons on the other end). Its easily visible right after turning the phone on when theres a white background, it is also visible on grey backgrounds.
vicky, 18 Apr 2012really good piece in the middle segment budget phone.. battery life works for me for 2 days..... moreits good. i am facing a problem ie. net surfing and download are very slow.... and another problem is we can not use another ring tones for this phone.
Srinivas, 19 Apr 2012i'v heard that there is no GPS navigation in this phone because there is no digital compass, i... moreYou're partly right. The HTC One V has no compass - that's true. But GPS navigation is still possible, it's just that when you aren't moving the device doesn't know which direction you're facing - for me that's actually a bit of a bummer and I'm thinking of sending the One V back.
In the specification it is wrongly reported that it has a "compass" amongst its sensors. In fact it is one of the headsets' drawbacks of neither having a Gyro nor a magnetic sensor.
i'v heard that there is no GPS navigation in this phone because there is no digital compass, is it true?
What are the disadvantages of not having a digital compass on your phone?

Fags, 18 Apr 2012Got this phone yesterday. Awesome. First hand experience of Android & happy as is very use... moreHmm... The battery life for One V is already considered to be good for Android smartphones. I assume you can run at least 1.5 to 2 day on the One V. Matching a Nokia E-series phone battery life is difficult since the newer Android phones quite overpower the Nokia smartphones with processors that have double its speed.
I use an HTC Sensation and I use the power-saver mode when I don't need to say play games or view it under sunlight. It doesn't hinder much performance since phone calls and texting requires minimal performance. When I'm up to play games, stream some videos or play HD video playback, I turn off power-saver mode to bring my enjoyment back. Live wallpapers are also very battery draining so you might not need to have them but if you can't live without the beauty, leave it to dance.
I think One V doesn't have an battery that you can change so a back-up battery option can be an external battery that you plug in via the USB port.
If you just bought it and are able to consider a phone that is powerful yet able to have the best battery life, check out Motorola RAZR MAXX. It sports a 3300 mAh battery
