The chin is back in town: HTC's One V shows that the company just can't let a styling cue die, though when you're basing your new smartphone on the beautiful HTC Legend, that's probably no bad thing. If the One X is for the power user, and the One S for the everyman, the One V attempts to raise the bar for entry- to mid-tier devices with a combination of style and performance. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

HTC One S hands-on

HTC One S hands-on

While the One X may be HTC's new flagship, the One S is arguably the most cohesive all-round package: a balance of design, screen size and performance with the benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich. Sense 4.0 has been cleaned up and pushed back to its roots - improving the core OS experience, rather than merely making it look different - while HTC's legendary hardware expertise has been pushed to the next level with some attention-grabbing production processes. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

HTC One X hands-on

HTC One X hands-on

HTC is pushing overall user experience with its MWC 2012 smartphone range, but it's hard not to talk about the HTC One X without spec hyperbole slipping in. The flagship of the new One Series, it's a 4.7-inch 720p HD "All-In Device" HTC insists, and - with a few blips - it's hard not to agree. After a long history of Qualcomm-powered devices, the One X brings NVIDIA's quadcore Tegra 3 into the HTC range. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

It's finally here: HTC has just unveiled its latest workhorse phone, the One S. This model slides in just below the One X, using a smaller 4.3-inch screen with a 960x540 resolution, the same as most of HTC's phones for the last year. Instead of the screaming Tegra 3 on the X, the HTC One S gets a standard Qualcomm 1.5ghz dual-core processor. On the software side, it gets the same treatment: Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC's updated Sense UI 4 as a topping. The phone is getting its worldwide unveiling at Mobile World Congress.

Sony Xperia U hands-on

Sony Xperia U hands-on

Sony's new Xperia U may be the baby of the NXT Series bunch, but - with Sony's aesthetic almost universal across the line-up - you won't be instantly taunted if spotted with the cheapest model. It's also not the most inspiring designs, but it feels solid and reasonably responsive with its dual-core processor. More hands-on after the cut.
