Low-end HTC One V unleashed (from MWC 2012)

Low-end HTC One V unleashed (from MWC 2012)Phew. I’m working my way down the spec ladder here. I started with the quad-core HTC One X earlier this morning, before moving onto the dual-core HTC One S.

Now it’s time for the most modest of the Taiwanese manufacturer’s new handsets, namely the single-core HTC One V.

The HTC One V is actually surprisingly modest, and for all intents and purposes might as well be called the HTC Desire V. Not that there’s a lot to be desired; it's a bit of a step back. Impressed we ain’t.

In terms of specs, the HTC One V has a 3.7in display (familiar territory for the Desires) with a resolution of 480 x 800, a single-core SnapDragon S2 processor clocked at 1GHz (for serious), 512MB RAM (less than the HTC Desire S), 4GB internal storage (with microSD support, to be fair) and a 1,500mAh battery.

The HTC One V's rear camera is a 5MP effort, but – somewhat surprisingly – there’s nothing on the front. Nothing at all. What the…?

As with the HTC One X and HTC One S, the HTC One V will arrive in April with HTC Sense 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and Beats Audio goodness.

The right pricing and it'll sell well.
Us geeky fools aside, the specs will serve the masses well. And 3.7in is what many consider ideal.
I'll only look at it again if they cut the clock from the homescreen :p

I don't like their new Sense. Old one is better.

What are you judging that on? Most impressions I've seen say the new pruned-back Sense actually feels like a step in the right direction.

I don't particularly like the colour scheme for this phone. The Legend looked a lot better.

I thought that color scheme and app bar (on the bottom) is new Sense - ugly.

The colour of the notification bar etc. is just one of the many included stock skins. I have that skin on my stock ROM Gingerbread Sensation.
