We review the HTC One V, a compact mid-range Android smartphone.
HTC’s 2012 smartphone lineup numbers three handsets as we write this. The One X is the flagship, with its quad core processor and generally blistering specifications. The One S is a smaller, more pocketable offering. And the One V is the baby of the bunch in size terms, has received less publicity, and may perhaps be ideal for many people.
The HTC One V looks very much like the old HTC Legend and its predecessor, the HTC Hero. Both older handsets had a little upward curving lip along their bottom edge, and that is replicated here. It’s distinctive, and while it does mean the One V sits a little awkwardly in tight pockets, we like it.
In general the build is pleasing and the notification light that’s a tiny teeny strip on the top edge is rather distinctive. Still, we do have a major niggle. There’s a solid aluminium backplate that can’t be removed – so you can’t get to the battery.
Inside issue 13 of Android Magazine we take a look at the best custom ROMs for your Android phone and also review the Samsung Galaxy S III
The brand new issue of Android Magazine has gone on sale. As always it is packed with the latest new, tips and reviews that show you all the amazing things happening in the Android world.

We also take an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S III and ask the question: Is this the best phone ever?
This tutorial will show you how to unlock the bootloader on your phone using either the official HTCDev.com solution, or an unofficial third party way.
For a while HTC had a reputation of being a company that was (to a certain extent) hacker friendly. Whilst they didn’t openly approve of rooting and flashing neither did they take active steps to prevent anyone from performing such a task.
That notion quickly vanished when the HTC Thunderbolt was released. With a little work the hacking community soon realized that this and other HTC handsets were being released onto the market with locked bootloaders. This made rooting and flashing a very difficult if not impossible process.
This raised a few concerned voices within the hacking community to the point that HTC eventually responded and released their own tool for unlocking the bootloader.
