This is a phone for smartphone dabblers, not smartphone enthusiasts

from TechRadar
The HTC One VX is a great option for someone who wants just the basic functionality of a smartphone. Email, web access, light media and gaming on the go are all well within its reach. AT&T's coverage isn't blazing fast everywhere, but we never had to search for a signal. That combined with respectable battery life makes the One VX a dependable, if bland, device... Full review

A solid Android smartphone for buyers on a budget, but it isn't your best bet available

from PC Magazine
A year ago, the HTC One VX for AT&T would've been a top-of-the-line superphone. Today it's just a beautiful smartphone with solid specs and a budget price. The HTC One VX gets you a lovely display, plenty of power, and good battery life, all wrapped up in a phone that's very comfortable to use... Full review

A sleek, feature-packed smartphone deal

from Cnet
I remember when $50 would only net you only an embarrassingly slow and boxy mobile device running outdated software. My, have times changed -- and the $49.99 HTC One VX is a perfect example of the shift in today's handset market. This device does not provide a full four cores of computing power or a bleeding-edge operating system. What the One VX does offer, however, is what just six months ago was a premium Android experience, but at an entry-level price... Full review

If you're on a budget, the HTC VX delivers plenty of performance

from Phone Scoop
The HTC One VX brings a lot to the table for its $50 price tag. While I wish the hardware felt and functioned a wee bit better, I can't ding HTC too much for picking cheaper plastics in this price class. The fine performance of the Android operating system and many applications contained therein make the VX an excellent vehicle for checking email, staying in touch with social networks, and perhaps even getting some work done. It has as many entertainment options as any other modern smartphone, and the camera does a decent job for this class of device... Full review

Pretty typical of a budget-friendly device

from SlashGear
The One VX offers a balanced ratio between price and performance, and while it’s classified as just a budget device for those cash-strapped consumers looking for a good deal, the One VX will provide the experience of a top-tier handset — it looks and feels like a top-of-the-line HTC device, and it performs about as great as you’d expect from a flagship smartphone, with only a few setbacks that few will grumble over. If you’re not willing to shell out money for the One X+ or Galaxy S III, the One VX will surely make you happy for only $50... Full review

May not be perfect, but it offers a sleek design and good performance

from Engadget
With an seemingly endless stream of new phones ready to hit us in the face at CES next week and MWC next month, a mid-ranger like the One VX will probably fade from our memory pretty quickly. Aside from the attractive back and solid performance, it's a forgettable device. But for someone who's seeking a simple and reliable smartphone at a reasonable cost, HTC's latest offering is the best AT&T device in its price range... Full review

A really good entry-level phone

from Android Central
It's easy to dismiss the HTC One VX as just another mid- to low-end phone, but don't. It's a surprisingly good one, created specifically to fill a void in AT&T's lineup. It's currently listed at $49 with a two year contract, or $399 outright., which, frankly, isn't horrible for the type of phone this is. HTC's and AT&T's customizations help make things easier on first-time owners. And the One VX continues to say something about HTC as a smartphone manufacturer. When your most lowly phones are this well done, you're doing things right... Full review

Offers budget smartphone shoppers a bright display, eye-popping 4G speeds and a fast camera inside a sleek design

from Laptop Magazine

The HTC One VX is one heck of a deal, offering an unparalleled combination of features and design for just $49. Yes, we'd like to see Android Jelly Bean added sooner than later, but otherwise the VX has everything you could want in a budget smartphone. It boasts some of the fastest 4G LTE speeds we've seen, a bright (though not HD) display and a very capable camera. We'd much rather carry this device than the similarly priced LG Escape, which looks plain by comparison and has a dimmer display. Those with more to spend should step up to the quad-core $199 One X+ on AT&T, which runs the lates... Full review

Pleasing design for an entry-level device in an affordable price point

from PhoneArena

Needless to say, we’ve seen an increase of very remarkable entry-level smartphones in the market – such as the LG Escape and Pantech Flex, with the two being priced aggressively. Well people, we’re happy to vouch for the HTC One VX as well, considering that it has that great balance of features, price point, and performance to appease those who aren’t looking to spend a fortune. On top of that, its design is undeniably something that stands head above water against most of the offerings out there in the same space. So if your budget stands at a mere $50, you’re...
