Bought this phone. Six months later HTC announce that there will be no further releases of the operating system supported. This happened to the last phone I bought that was an HTC. Otherwise, this has generally been a good phone for the money. Performance is adequate and it struggles at times. Pity HTC don't seem to support their customers. (read more)

The HTC One V has an average of 4 stars of out five across the web with most users finding it a great phone for the price. TechRadar like the design of the handset calling it aesthetically pleasing with the phone itself delivering a pleasant user experience.
The 5MP camera on-board is impressive and they liked the responsive 3.7 inch screen. The HTC One V runs on Android's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system making it a good choice for Android lovers.
Comparable in size to the iPhone 4, the One V is praised by ExpertReviews as being of a great build quality with it's 3.7 inch screen but suffers from slow browsing unless viewing a mobile version of a site. It only has 512MB and the entry level version has 4GB of internal storage that can be upped using a microSD card.
PCAdvisor cites it's good battery life and great screen resolution as positives but think it lacks a little connectivity although it does feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB and 3.5mm audio jack.
Over at TrustedReviews the HTC One V is hailed as having a cute design and being an exciting mid-range mobile. They like that you can easily upgrade to this phone as it uses a standard full size SIM and not a micro and note that the phone features a nice touch by including a slim LED strip that changes colour when you have a notification. Overall a fairly decent phone for the price and many sites recommend going for a pre-owned model to save even more cash.
