HTC One V Review
HTC One V Preview
The HTC One V is HTC’s latest offering to the more affordable range of the smartphone market. As an aesthetic successor to the popular HTC Hero and HTC Legend devices, the One V boasts the same strong chin and sturdy design of its forebears.
Of course, coming in at the lower end of the market, the One V isn’t exactly over-endowed in the hardware department, but it should still get the job done for many users. The single-core 1GHz CPU and 512MB are what we saw with high-end devices just 2 years ago and should still be able to handle most modern mobile games and apps.
4GB of internal storage isn’t particularly impressive, but there is a MicroSD slot for expandable memory that has the potential to offer up to 32GB of added memory. Once again this is fairly standard for a phone in this price range.
The 5MP camera should hopefully take better photos than we’ve seen previously on Android 5MP shooters. This is because the One V comes rocking one of HTC’s new F2.0 apertures and 28mm lenses, as well as a BSI sensor for better low-light shots. We’re keen to see if this camera actually holds up in the real-world, or if it sounds more impressive on paper than it actually is.
There’s also Beats Audio sound enhancement which we believe may be a first for a smartphone this affordable. While the One V likely won’t come standard with Beats Audio ear-buds, there’s still the possibility for the odd sale here and there that pushes the ear-buds as an added bonus.
Overall we don’t think the One V is going to wow anybody, but it was never intended to. What we do expect from this device is that it will be a solid and reliable handset for an affordable price. The only thing we’re hesitant about right now is the 4GB of storage, which will definitely inhibit the One V’s use as a media device. But like we said the storage is always upgradable for anyone who wants to drop a little extra cash.
