The HTC One V comes with a 5 megapixel sensor with an an F2.0 aperture, a 28mm lens and a BSI sensor for low-light captures. We put it through its paces in our outdoor test and boy did it impress us! You can check out the images on the next page to see the collection of snaps we’ve managed to take with the One V.
The camera interface
Low-light capture sans flash is pretty average, though. The image turns out to be slightly grainy and we’d recommend you keep the flash on for your low-light snaps. A couple of embedded filters and effects will make sure you won’t need any third party camera apps. The slow motion video capture is a fun feature, too. Unfortunately, the One V doesn’t come with a front camera or a dedicated shutter button.

720p video captured a good amount of detail, but slight colour banding was noticeable. Focussing, though, was pretty good. With the amount of customizations and features present in the stock camera app, it's going to pique your interest for a long time to come.
The One V comes equipped with a 1500 mAh battery. In our video loop test, the phone lasted for 12 hours 30 minutes with connectivity options (besides network) disabled. In our Tech2 loop test, the smartphone lasted through three hours of calling, three hours of video, four hours of audio and two hours twenty minutes of audio streaming. All tests were performed under the automatic brightness mode. Under heavy day-to-day usage, we could crank up more than a day’s worth of juice from the One V. Shutting down unrequired applications running in the background also helped extend battery life.
Worth a buy?
The HTC One V is priced at Rs.17,500 (MOP). At this price tag, it competes with the likes of Sony Ericsson Neo V and the HTC Rhyme. The dual-core Xperia U is priced a little cheaper, but we’ll reserve our comment on that phone till we review the unit. The One V clearly steamrolls its anagrammatic competitor, the Neo V. This phone is a worthy device in its own right, very much capable of handling your non-extinguishable smartphone desires.
