Default Do you like the One V?

I got the EVO V 4G and I like it, but I just want to know a couple of things about the One V:

1. How is the battery life?
I see you can't remove the battery, so no quick swapping.
2. Is it fast?
The Motorola Triumph was 1Ghz single core, and always felt kind of sluggish. even overclocked at 1.3Ghz
3. Does it have weird signal issues?
Again the Moto Triumph, GPS took 5~ minutes to lock. The iPhone death grip.
4. Any other quirks?
Signal dropping out? Texts don't go through? Horribly unstable OS?

I think it's quiet because a lot of this has been discussed before.

So how do you like your phone?
Thinking of getting the one v any feedback
Who is enjoying their 1V

I don't own the One V anymore but had it for three months. I'll have a go at your questions:

1. I never had any complaints about battery life and was never disappointed that I couldn't remove the battery. I usually got 1 1/2 - 2 days of battery out of it (I'm not a gamer).

2. It's not fast like my Galaxy S3 but was much faster than my Wildfire S. Still some lag in menus and the browser isn't the fastest, but for my purposes it was fine.

3. I never had any weird signal issues and no death grip.

4. It doesn't have a compass.


On the positive side:
1. For the price, this is a great piece of equipment. It feels premium in the hand.

2. It has the best screen in its price range.

3. It has the best camera in its price range.

4. Sense 4 is one of the best OEM implementations of ICS that I've seen.


The One V isn't perfect but neither is any device, not even my SG3. But it's a great device considering what you pay for it.

I basically agree with CafeKampuchia's post. I've had mine for about 6 weeks and have been very happy with it. Battery life, build quality, screen, and camera are all pretty good. The OS has never locked up or crashed on me. VM's 3G can be a bit pokey at times, but I'm usually on a wi-fi network at home or in the office, so it's not a major issue. It's an excellent phone for the price.

Speaking of price, VM's website is currently selling the phone at a 20% discount. $159.99 with free shipping, instead of the normal $199.99.

it's $149.99 + free shipping + no sales tax on amazon.

i was watching it like a hawk on every site, i was going to order it from virgin mobile's site on 9/10/12 (the last day at the $159.99 price + 8.75% tax) - my t-mobile contract isn't up until 9/23/12 - i'll get accustomed with it until then, when i activate it.

but let's see if i'm banging my head against the wall in a couple weeks if the price drops even further

If you can find it on sale (Amazon and Radio Shack both are $150 or so), it's probably the best budget smart phone out there.

As for how I like it? (I bought one for my mom)
Pros: It's speedy enough, has a great shape and feel. Relatively easy to root and rom (easy if you have done HTC phones before).
Cons: I wish it were a bit faster. HTC gimped the OS for no good reason. No removable battery.

Extras related to rooting:
The recoveries are fickle, especially regarding the sdcard, this will be solved in time. I had to put her on my 8gig (not sure of brand) instead of the 16gig Sandisk she had. Not that she needs that much space. A rom restores the lost Sense functions.

Overall, a great phone, especially for the price. If I didn't have my Evo V, it would be my first choice. Give it a removable battery and a bit more speed and I would swap my Evo V for it.

Recoveries... CWM didn't want to work (no way to press any buttons), TWRP2 couldn't see the 16Gig sdcard.

HTC removed some of the functions from Sense, the weather lock screen being the one I noticed most. JMZ's rom put that function back.

To get the power button to work on cwm, scroll down to the bottom them press volume down to go back to top, then press volume up to back to the top. This will enable the power button to select. As for twrp, I had problems with it restoring backups. I wound up losing my stock back up due to it either not saving correctly or not restoring correctly. I switched to cwm, and haven't had any problems backing up or restoring with that one.

As for the phone itself, I love it. It took me all of two days to root and install install cm 9. I have the sick kernel installed and over clocked to 1.5ghz stable.

I got this phone for my gf. The phone is amazing. I really like it.

She switched from the Galaxy Nexus.
For battery she's getting about 14 hours with 2 hours of screen on time.

The screen looks amazing. It's really bring and vivid. Build quality is also a plus. The unibody construction really makes it feel like a premium device.

Performance is good. I feel like sense is super aggressive at killing background apps to ensure that the experience is smooth. Might be an issue for you if you want to multitask a lot. Music while texting works just fine.

Signal wise we also have had a good experience with virgin. No data loss or anything funky. Her data is more reliable than my Verizon LTE.

Overall I love this One V. I got a class 10 sd card for it and it works great.

If I was getting a virgin mobile phone the one V would be my first choice.

I just got the One V after trying an Optimus Elite, and the difference is fantastic.

Battery life compared to the Elite is night & day...no comparison.

Sense is not bad at all. I have Launcher Pro as well, but I find using Sense is actually suiting me better, once I got used to it.

The One V is a definite upgrade over the Optimus V & the Elite. I got mine from Best Buy for $149 after they price matched Radio Shack's sale price.

W.T.F.
I will have to give CWM another try I guess. I really hate not having a working recovery.


You lasted two days?
I'm down to 10 minutes after activation, just long enough to read the guide once or twice before I start and collect everything needed.

First Android (Optimus V) lasted 2 weeks (I think).
Second (Evo 4g) lasted 6 hours, I had to finish up work first.
Third (Evo V) lasted 3 hours, I was building a rom while rooting.
Forth (Optimus Elite) lasted 1 hour, takes a while to accomplish and collect everything.
Fifth (One V) lasted 10 minutes, it would have been less, but a lot was waiting on the HTC email and was checking the wrong email.

It's not that I necessarily want to, it's fun don't get me wrong, but I have a purpose behind it.

While I HATE all of the ads that websites and apps use, the main reason I root is because after building a few roms, I know just how much battery stock bloat uses. On the Optimus V you gained 50% more battery life by rooting and removing bloat and ads. Nowadays you can just freeze apps, but that's only a temporary solution.

As a phone ages, you also pick up extra features. The Evo V has gained a much better quick settings, multiple camera enhancements, faster more efficient kernels and drivers... By the time I quite using my Optimus V 8 months ago, other devs and myself had nearly tripled the battery life.

i am considering rooting my phone. the main reason is performance; speed, battery life, etc.

any recommendations?

You won't see a lot of speed change. Overclock will do the most there.

Battery however can improve quite a bit, but I can't say how much as I didn't run the phone in stock form long enough to see how well it did. You ALWAYS gain battery life killing off bloat though because you kill of junk running in the background that is using ram, hogging data and using the radios.

I have JMZ's rom running on it.
Seems nice, but it's not my phone. I put it on, set things up and handed it off.

You have to put the full Sense back in for it.
You might get away just copying that APK, but I wouldn't count on it, and why, when you can have Full Sense.

Senthamil,

Welcome to the One V side. I moved your post to a more relevant thread. Also see my post #3 above for more.

Cheers!

It's one of the best VM phones you can get, with good developer support.

Cons... non-removable battery, could be a little faster, doesn't come with an sdcard.

Pros... thin, plenty fast, good amount of storage, Sense 4 (lite)

Compared to other models... Unless you need the power, screen size, 3d function of the Evo V/SGS2, it's the best phone on Virgin. Much cheaper and thinner than the Evo V, and can be found for half the price of the Galaxy S2.

I had the One V for a few months and I had quite a different experience with it than many other people here. While I found it perfectly usable for basic tasks, the lag got to be really grating. Dolphin struggled to run smoothly on the phone, and the most basic of multitasking would be a cumbersome, laggy process. Texting in the stock app was awful; threads with hundreds of messages took ages to load, and just sending a message seemed to tax the processor. Sense 4.0 is aesthetically pleasing and I liked many of its features, but I felt that the dated hardware of the One V wasn't capable enough for it.

A decent phone, but I never forgot that it was essentially an entry-level device (though it's important to note I also never rooted it).

I'm getting one to 1.5 days batt life on standby. Can that be right? Am I supposed to turn off pretty much everything possible (wifi, etc) before I put it on standby? Sure is cool there's no manual to tell you this stuff.

I got the Reverb for my GF for 100, now I'm wondering if this would have been better.

Leslie Anne--nice to see your name in the One V posts- I always looked for your posts in the past on the Optimus V-- you have the rare talent of being a Dev that still remembers how to speak unGeeked English.

Just ordered the One V earlier today when VM made an offer I couldn't refuse.

Default One V or Desire X....?

Hi,

So I was confusing to choose between One V and Desire X. Finally my desire beat the V. (In terms of Dual core, 4 Inch Display, 768 Mb Ram and 1650 mAh Battery)
Just ordered for the Desire X and reading the catalog now....

RadioShack is selling it for $49.99 right now.
OOS online, but available in most RS stores.

No. It uses an antiquated adhoc network for tethering, which Android devices, like tablets, don't like to connect to. If you're using a non-android laptop it may work, but I wouldn't count on it having a good long range signal.

Easy enough. It even has a tethering widget so if you have set it up, it needs just one touch to start tethering.

Having said that, One V is slow phone (compared to my another phone, the LG 2X), and tethering speed is not that good.

I have no problem connect my notebook and other android phones to it though. Sometime I went to play with the display units at the mall when the new phones are released. If the store did not setup the wifi with those phone, I just use my One V tethering. I don't remember having problem connecting with any of those phones I tried.

can you tether every mobile device within 100ft like the Optimus V ???

I can leave my OV phone in my bedroom, go out side into the work shop and still get enough bars on my tablet to get my googlevoice txt messages from my GF.

only thing holding me back from upgrading, I got no root tethering that goes a long long way with the OV.....

Hi I just had the one V for two weeks. I am v impressed with battery life-3 days- but having had a Desire for more than two years I find the layout or interface on One V very poor. The processor is v quick and I guess that most of my dislike is due to being so old and therefore fixed in my ways. But I would really like to know if I could swap the Desire interface onto this phone. I guess the lack of trakball would preclude that option.
