The HTC One V landed on Virgin Mobile, bringing with it a sweet and compact design plus Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for $199.99. Best of all you don't have to sign an onerous wireless contract.
The HTC One V sports that HTC chin bump that Legend and Hero fans know so well. You can also see here the phone's Micro-USB port on its left side.
With its premium aluminum construction and black hue, Virgin Mobile's version of the HTC One V looks very sophisticated. On back is its 5-megapixel camera and LED flash.
The HTC One V's right side houses a thin volume bar. And, yes, there's that funky chin again.
Under the HTC One V's chin is a compartment that holds a microSD card slot. The phone's battery isn't removable, though.
Placed on the HTC One V's top edge is its power button, 3.5mm headphone jack, and slick-looking notification light shaped in a thin line.
On board the HTC One V you'll find a similar virtual keyboard used by the One X and One S powered by the company's Sense UI.
Here's a closer look at the HTC One V's 5-megapixel camera. It's clear this phone takes style seriously.
Running HTC's Sense 4 UI, you unlock the One V by dragging a virtual ring to the center of the screen. You can also jump straight to other applications by pulling quick launch icons into this ring.
An HTC phone wouldn't be the same without that classic weather app and animations. The One V is no exception, but it lacks some of the more energetic and graphically challenging eye candy the other One series phones flaunt.
