Not expecting much heat from this given what I've seen happens to mobile deals most of the time but still, this was a good deal for me and I thought I'd share!

I'm already on O2, and wanted to stay. Was paying £20 a month for 2gb/unlimited/unlimited on a 30 day contract with my perfectly serviceable (in fact I completely rebuilt it less than a month ago) HTC one M7, until I slammed it in the car door by mistake (when the sat nav holder fell off the windsceen) and completely destroyed it :(

I've been eyeing up the HTC 10 for some time (not that I'm trying to start an argument about whether it's better than an S7 or an iPhone 7, just that it was the one I wanted).

Sim free from HTC you're talking £570, although I've seen £100 off with them. CPW sim free = £500. Looking around I can't find better than £400 sim free- and all of these options involve relatively large up-front outlay).

O2 themselves aren't offering the 10 apparently (according to O2), so for me upgrading via CPW and paying £89.99 up front and adding £11.50 to my tariff got me the phone I wanted for £365 (and with a decent chunk of the cost spread interest free over a 2 years) and another 50% of data on top.

Not for everyone, but good for me and maybe anyone else mulling over an upgrade on O2.

May as well buy an iPhone 7 if you are spending that much on a phone.

Feel free. This is for people who want a HTC 10 (of which I am one).

Also been looking at the 10 , but I'm expecting better deals in the next month or so to crop up. HTC themselves are doing black Friday deals imminently, currently US are getting $200 off. Contract prices should follow
#5
That is the risk. I was banking on the fact that Black Friday deals may bring the outright purchase price down nicely, but that the discount would be too short lived to filter through to contract prices (and that I'd still rather spread the cost than pay up front, even if that means losing tariff flexibility). Had I not smashed my old phone to pieces I too may well have waited.
#6
Can get the equivilent deal for £788 if you are prepared to move network. I just don't see the point in posting a deal for specific criteria like this as it is not likely to help many people very much.
#7
It's available to new customers for £10 more on the up front fee, so perhaps for a wider audience than first mentioned.

But if someone is network free and it's cheaper elsewhere I have no problem with that being posted (either in response to this or in a new thread)- I did search on here for HTC 10 and there was 3/5 of F.A. (other than the (very good) expired EE offer).

There is also a deal here on hukd still active from TalkMobile for a few hundred cheaper but you get 5GB of data. Have been tempted with that one.

Mines about to go in the bin. I was stuck between this and the s7 but opted for this I've had the s2 and s4, but my first smartphone was the original htc desire which was excellent. The phone itself is OK but i now realise it's not as good as the s7 after using one of those for a week. The back button is on the wrong side so you can't reach with your thumb which sounds like a small gripe but it's really annoying in practical terms. U can't comfortably browse with one hand. There's a workaround but you have to install custom firmware. It's also not waterproof which most other phones of this calibre are now. I accidentally submerged mine in water and as it's an all in one unit with no removable cover it's a nightmare to do anything internal with the phone. I paid 80 pounds to get it fixed but now the battery life is woeful and today the phone has refused to charge at all. Obviously my own fault getting it wet but wouldn't have been an issue with the s7 or most other flagships. This phone should drop in price soon as it's been a flop from what I've heard.

The back button is on the ' correct ' side as far as Android is concerned. Can't understand why you'd get the HTC 10 without knowing this and also knowing it's not waterproof ?

Samsung have it on the right, I hold the phone in my right hand so easier access for me. Personal taste really I suppose. I knew the phone wasn't waterproof, it was an accident, but wouldn't have been an issue with the s7 and after using one for a week it's better IMO.

It is personal preference. I loved my M7, and having to go back to my Galaxy Nexus just made it even more obvious. I do feel the 10 picks up and continues from the M7. Having had a go with an S7 edge again I just didn't click with it.

That's not to say it's better than an S7 or iPhone, it's personal preference.

Speaking generally, it is a pity that the only mobile deals that seem to get any heat are cheap Chinese phones right at the bottom end of the market being sold by dodgy international sellers. It would be much more healthy for the site if the contingent always hammering deals for premium phones (of all makes) just stayed away from the deals.
#13
So where are the black Friday deals for this phone ? Making me wonder if there's not enough UK demand or stock to discount it. HTC will likely reduce the phone by 100-150 any day now but will the contract prices follow ?
#14
I've been wondering the same, my wife may be semi-after one at the right price. Of course the alternative reason to the one you suggest is that it's still too premium to discount (whereas Samsung have a job to do after the exploding Notes). I'm sure we'll see something soon, glad I've had the phone for the last few weeks though.
