HTC One now available for only $49.99 from AT&T and Sprint on a two year contract. HTC One is an Android smartphone developed by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. The smartphone was developed with an emphasis on unique hardware and software features, such as a uni-body aluminum casing, a new image sensor implementation for its camera, front-facing stereo speakers, a revised version of HTC’s Sense user experience, the “BlinkFeed” news aggregator and “Zoe” camera features.
While initially set for a release in mid-March 2013, manufacturing delays led to a staggered release beginning in late March, with its release date in certain markets (such as Asia and North America) pushed as far back as April. Despite these issues, the One sold around 5 million units through its first two months of worldwide availability.The One was universally praised for its hardware design and well received for its software features, but certain aspects of the device’s software were met with mixed reviews.
The HTC One ships with Android 4.1.2, using HTC’s Sense user interface. The new version of Sense on the One, version 5, uses a new minimalist visual style with a redesigned home screen: the signature flip clock widget from previous HTC phones has been replaced by a simple digital clock and weather display.
The HTC One can be picked up from the Amazon Wireless for a discounted price, letting you save $150 of the original pricing of both the AT&T and the Sprint variants.
This deal matches what WireFly did for the Sprint model last month, but that retailer doesn’t offer AT&T phones at all. There are always little twists in these deals, and this time it’s a good one. While you are stuck paying $99.99 on both carriers for upgrades, any new line is eligible for the $49.99 price this time (not just a new account).
