The distinctive HTC look

With its smoothly rounded curves, silver trim, and white backing, the One VX is unmistakably an HTC handset.

Slim and trim

At just 0.36 of an inch thick, the HTC One VX sports a very svelte profile for a budget phone.

Android OS, but not the most advanced

The HTC One VX offers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, modern to be sure, but not the most recent flavor -- Android Jelly Bean.

Capture the moment

Despite a low-res 5-megapixel sensor, the HTC One VX's camera boasts plenty of advanced features, including several shooting modes and special filters.
