HTC One V

Cast your peepers over the HTC One V and you'd be forgiven for experiencing a spot of déjà vu. That's because the One V recycles the look of past classic the HTC Legend.

While the basic shape is the same, including the distinctive chin at the base, it's not a carbon copy. The One V is thinner, sleeker and more moodily coloured than its predecessor. Under the hood it's beefier and the screen is a smidge bigger.

The phone is fully refreshed on the software front though, running the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), and packing HTC's newest Sense software overlay, Sense 4.0.
