HTC made a big splash at the Mobile World Congress this year when it showcased three new devices under its HTC One umbrella, namely the One X, One S and One V. The One V is the second device in the series to be launched in the country. Priced at Rs. 19,399, the smartphone draws attention thanks to its protruding chin design, which is reminiscent of the HTC Legend. Unlike its elder siblings the One S and the One X, the device sports a comparably smaller 3.7-inch display, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But is the device worthy of all the attention? We take a look.

  • Worst HTC phone ever!
    Ranjith Adiga (May 28, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I have been using this phone from a year now. Lower RAM or some issue with the phone making the contact and Messages app always hanging. How irritating it will be if I want to call someone and phone shows the contact as loading!! When I call customer care, always they to do a factory set up. it is so shameful on HTC parts as phone is not to be used only in factory set up! Earlier I was using HTC sensation, it was wonderful phone. Even in HTC one, the user interface, camera is good. HTC sense will provide wonderful experience. Now Im leaving HTC and going for google nexus 5

    Even nokia 3310 has more power. Every app that i open, opens up about for 3 minutes, + it lags all the TIME. Don't even bother looking up this phone or even BUYING IT, you will regret it.
