Review: HTC One V for Virgin Mobile
Virgin Mobile didn't go overboard with the bloatware. In fact, the One V is pretty clean compared to other devices. Sure, there's a My Account app, and the Virgin Mobile Live app, but most other apps on board the One V are from Google. Obviously, the Google Play Store is at your disposal for gorging on your own favorite apps.Bluetooth
The V's Bluetooth radio works perfectly. It paired with every device I could find. Phone calls, in particular, sounded excellent when sent through my car's hands-free system. Music sounded very good when sent to stereo Bluetooth headphones. I had no issues pushing files to/from the V, either.Clock
The One V has the same over-the-top clock options found on the One X and One S. There are 18 clock widgets on the V. Any of them can be chosen as the home screen clock, but not the lock screen. The clock on the lock screen is a smallish, digital affair that is positioned at the top of the screen. It's readable at arm's length, but can be hard to see in bright sunlight if you've chosen a light wallpaper.

The GPS worked very well. The V's GPS radio was able to lock on my position in less than 30 seconds, and was accurate to within about 25 feet. Thanks to the solid network access and an accurate GPS radio, directions with Google Maps were spot-on and close to real-time.
