Did you know that, alongside the One M9 and A9, HTC also still sells the unlocked One M8 through its official US online store? Probably not, since the high-end veteran continues to cost $500 with Sprint and Verizon support.
That’s preposterous, seeing as how you can actually score its sequel for less from Amazon and other third-party retailers. Meanwhile, the HTC 10 “threequel” is almost ready for its own commercial debut, so it’s time the Taiwanese OEM did something to clear up One M8 inventory.
Rooting for a Tuesday-only “Hot Deal” to bring the two-year-old’s price down to $200 or so? Unfortunately, you’ll have to make do with an unsanctioned eBay promo offered by trusted e-merchant mobilepros1 as long as inventory holds up.
That may not give you very much time to consider things and pit the HTC One M8 against its sub-$200 US competition, though at $190, you can trust us when we say you won’t be able to do better. Better than an all-aluminum sleek slab with a sharp 5-inch Full HD display in tow, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage space, microSD support, dual 4 Ultrapixel rear camera, and 5MP selfie snapper, that is.
And let’s not forget Android 6.0 Marshmallow goodies provided following a recent OTA upgrade, despite the handheld launching back in the day with 4.4 KitKat pre-loaded. But you know what the best part is? You’re free to activate the brand-new M8 units on sale here on Verizon, as well as GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile.
