Review: HTC One V for Virgin Mobile
The HTC One V is an all-around solid performer. It may lack the sex appeal and flashy specs of its larger HTC brothers, but for this class of device, it's hard to beat. The aluminum materials and Leno-esque chin give the One V a great little personality, while quality build and a comfortable footprint make it a joy to use as a daily driver.
The One V attaches itself to Sprint's 3G network and holds on tight, connecting calls and powering web-browsing sessions seamlessly. Calls sound great, the display looks good, and the battery outlasted me day in and day out.
Toss in the good system software from HTC, the surprisingly good performance from the Qualcomm processor, and excellent media powers, and the One V is a winner in all respects. Perhaps the only bummer is the V's lack of 4G, but you can't have everything.
