If you don't have money to burn or want one of the current crop of enormous smartphones, the HTC One V should be top of your shopping list.

The HTC One V is an attractive addition to Android's mid-range. It looks good, feels great, has a reasonable camera and apps aplenty. The con? Slightly sluggish web browsing.

The HTC One V's premium design is fashionable but demanding Android fans should steer clear of this phone's poor performance.

The HTC One V is a good midrange phone. It's very comfortable to use, has a great display, and runs Android 4.0 with some nice additions from HTC Sense.

The HTC One V is definitely one of the better phones in this price category, with a great display, great battery life and a lovely, familiar HTC design.
