Amazon drops HTC One price to $79.99 in honor of Father’s Day


Most everyone seems to agree that the HTC One is the best smartphone money can buy. But what if you could buy it with half as much money? Tomorrow, Amazon will host a one-day Father’s Day HTC One sale, cuting the price of the device to a mere $79.99 (if you’re willing to sign a new contract with Sprint or AT&T). Those looking to renew their plans with either of the carriers are treated to a $99.99 price – half of what you’d pay if you walked into a Sprint or AT&T store to purchase the phone.

If the HTC One is not your cup of tea, there’s always the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is listed on Amazon with a $168 price tag.

AT&T HTC One (New AT&T Customers: $79.99, Upgrading Customers: $99.99)

Sprint HTC One (New Sprint Customers: $79.99, Upgrading Customers: $99.99)

    As someone who doesn’t live in the USA, I find this post highly teasing. The phone is $650+ unlocked! No fair. :(

      It’s a nice tease, but you don’t hear us complaining about the every day £29.99 price tag of the HTC One offered by EE and 3 in the UK.

        I don’t live in the UK, either. :(

    Very tempting, very tempting. Must resist the temptations.

    T-Mobile? :(

    • jamie

      Tmobile has those no contract plans that require you to pay for the phone in full. You should check the Tmobile website as they often have sales as well as the website TmoNews which will keep you up to date. Tmobile is also having a Fathers Day sale. Go to their website and youll see theyve knocked down $100 off the price. Instead of the usual 199 downpayment, its 99 downpayment. You can pay the phone in full at once of do 20$ downpayments every month for 24 months. If you decide to leave Tmobile, however, you have to pay for the device in full…The total price this weekend is $480. You might want to check now

    This phone is shipped with android 4.1 I’ve really wanted one but I own the nexus 4 and the nexus 5 is around the corner and will have a better camera or on par and better specs and cost half unlocked. I’m gonna wait for the moto x or nexus 5 sorry one how nice you are but I’m a real android user

    • Droid Sam

      what does that even mean?

    • jamie

      I also want to see what the next Nexus is like. If its not enticing enough and if KeyLime Pie 5.0 doesnt deliver new features that excite me, Im moving to iPhone. I just have had too many Android problems and while Id miss a lot of features from widgets to SwiftKey, I cant take it anymore. The next Nexus would have to have LTE, a much much better camera, and still be offered at that $350 unlocked price. I currently have a GNex (which just failed after 9 months and had to be sent for repair – only my 5th Android related repair within less than 2 years!) and the one thing I like best – besides the pure Google experience and immediate updates – is that I can be on a prepaid plan which saves me anywhere between $500-800 a year.

    final nail in the coffin for HTC One

    • Burnd

      This is the first thing you do every day you wake up, isn’t it?

  • jonstle

    Looks like a solid phone! If I were up for an upgrade this one would be on my short list. Anyone out there use it?

    • Droid Sam

      Been using the HTC One since launch. Best phone I have ever owned.

      • yankeesusa

        Ive heard from many people that this phone is great. I would probably have upgraded if I was able to but the 2 year contracts really get you. I guess I’ll wait for the note 3

  • Michael G

    If you’re eligible for an upgrade through ATT, this isn’t a deal. The 32gb is 99.99 regularly for current customers eligible for an upgrade. The 64gb is 199.99, which isn’t offered through this amazon deal.

  • donger

    Really great deal. Amazon is amazing.

  • RoyalJoker

    What I meant is if its not a nexus and you buy it your a idiot and the waste your damn money. This phone looks good but the nexus 4 still ranks super high. What happens when the nexus 5 has a super camera same processor and same screen for 350$ to purchase and no contract. I bought the nexus 4 after being a sucker many years to contracts. I can honestly say I was and anyone else who signs a contract even for the best available phone is a idiot

  • yankeesusa

    Wirefly just lowered their price to $49.99 for new accounts or even lines i think. For $50 this phone is not bad at all. I think I would take this phone over the s4 for $50.

  • Diana

    Could end up being the best smartphone of 2013. If you are thinking about getting this phone, you’ll definitely want a case to protect it. Here’s a list of the cases on Amazon with the biggest discounts and best reviews: http://amzn.to/1ayqnnq. Did all the research for you.
