HTC One V not only comes with Android ICS overlay but with the perfect combination of HTC Image Sense 4.0 with Android OS this is the perfect device.

Network & Speed

HTC One V and Galaxy Ace Plus comes with both 2G, 3G internet access along with Wi Fi wireless internet access as well. Certainly these are the devices with no LTE support or 4G support.

Other Comparison

HTC One V is with built in Dr. Beats Audio which truly enhances the authentic audio quality and enhanced sound experience but this handset just like HTC One X comes without the Beats Audio and this is something which HTC did a big mistake with both One V and One X. Although users who are interested can purchase Beats Audio headset separately starting with price Rs 1500 and above.

Nothing special about Galaxy Ace Plus though this is the upgrade version of Galaxy Ace but you will feel is it an upgrade worth of it?

Final Verdict

The HTC One V almost wins in all the department of comparison like the display screen is quite better with LCD 2 display, equal processor specifications and GPU.

HTC One V certainly leaves Ace Plus far behind in Android version inclusion with Ice Cream Sandwich which is with addition of various features and coming to camera compartment, though both the device has same camera specifications, HTC with Image Sense add various features and effects and this where the difference comes between both the device.

We at Android advices, after various comparison and results, suggest to go with HTC One V smartphone even though its priced $ 40 more than Galaxy Ace Plus S 7500 but you get a device which you will like from the moment you touch it.
