Difference in Price

HTC One V is currently available in Indian market at Rs. 17,400/- whereas Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is slightly cheaper than that. Galaxy Ace Plus is currently available at Rs. 15,500/-. You can see there is a straight Rs. ~2,000/- difference between these two droids.

Final Conclusion

HTC One V clearly shows that it is better than Galaxy Ace Plus in most areas. Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus is a quality smartphone but lacks in many areas in comparison to HTC One V. Although there is difference in price but in my opinion you must opt for One V. I guess, you do not buy a Rs. 15k+ mobile couple of times a year.
