Verge score: 7.1

Bringing up the rear in HTC's 2012 cavalcade of new phones is the One V, a 3.7-inch Android 4.0 smartphone with an aluminum unibody design that evokes the well-liked Legend handset of 2010. It mostly keeps things simple, with a 1GHz single-core processor, a regular-sized SIM card slot (unlike its One series siblings), and a 5-megapixel camera.

Description

Available on T-Mobile and the first HTC phone on Virgin Mobile, the Wildfire S is a compact smartphone that features a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with flash, and a 600MHz processor running Android Gingerbread (2.3).
