Seems like a good phone for the price, 2730mah battery may be a sticking point.

MediaTek processor maybe another.

Everything else seems quite reasonable for a phone under £150.

Weak SoC, not worth the money. Spend a bit more on a Huawei or Xiaomi alternative.

You couldn't have just ended with 'alternative'?

Edit: what do you expect for £149?

I mean, I love HTC phones, my HTC One (M7) was probably my favourite ever phone..
However, they've always sucked, and continue to do so, when it comes to competing in the mid range.

The one m7 was my favourite phone, so I agree with you there anyway.

A Moto G5 for less money, that nearly performs 50% better on Antutu with a Snapdragon processor?

Fair enough, I never said it was better than a g5, or an honor 9 lite etc., but I get what you are saying, still a good alternative
The only reason to get excited about HTC is the recent Google connection, but this isn't showing that at all...

They should be coming up with the new Moto G1, maybe that'll be the next phone.

I hadn't realised you were the OP when I posted, you're a decent deal poster (normally ) so I've removed the sarcy chilly comment

I'd still recommend a Moto G5 over this as it performs better, or spending a bit more money on something with more punch altogether.

I read that the Moto G5 has 3GB of memory in a review, but I've seen it advertised with 2GB and with Android 7. So can someone help me understand the G5 variants. Is it worth getting the extra 1GB etc.?

HTC? Well I didn't realise that they were still around, they haven't made anything groundbreaking recently have they?

To be fair, I don't think anyone has.
I'd rather there be no groundbreaking for a while!!

There will be an Android 8 Oreo update:
support.motorola.com/us/…766

Also, always worth getting more RAM if available. Moto G5 with 3GB RAM is cheaper than the Desire 12 on Amazon.

I'm not going to bite, and just say that your comment is a bit harsh.
Edited by: "Mrswitch" 4th Jul
Can't see what is 'hot' about this deal - if this website was called rubbishphonedeals, it would be appropriate.

There are probably hundreds of better phones around at similiar or even lower prices.

Honestly, the last really genuinely good deal posted here for ages was the 159.99 Honor 9 John Lewis deal, I reckon 95% of the posts for phones are pretty crap deals frankly.

Not having a dig, just an observation.

Not a dig, your Honor 8 Pro post was a cracking deal. This isn't. Surely you can see that?
Quality over quantity - rather than just post everything you see and see what sticks.

I post them because not everyone thinks like you, I'm not posting for gratification, but to try and give people choices, many people don't know this phone exists, and now more know it does.

And its a decent spec for under £150, granted there are better alternatives, but there are also much worse.

Most of them aren't even worth a mention, never mind posting them as a deal.

Also, this is available from egc for £129.99.

Just because you two don't appreciate my deals, some do.
So I guess I'll take the negative with the positive

How is this a mediocre phone?? Its the latest from HTC, only £149 and has everything a normal, day to day user, even power user would want, the HD+ screen is stunning, brilliant camera, Dual sim (active not standby that works!!) cards, HTC sense and it is not even for sale yet in the UK and compared to the HTC 12+ which is brand new as well, you would be hard pushed to spot the difference in use.

As for the comparison to SFL, worlds apart!!! A lot, as in a lot of hukd members have really benefited from @Mrswitch deals, especially the phone deals, he / she has saved those that have purchased a massive amount and the Pepper group have not done bad out of the affiliate hops from them either!

The reason that he / she keeps posting, is there are a few of us out there, that like a challenge finding deals for others and are not lazy (( no offence @deeky !)) enough to just get ripped off, by paying more for something worth less, that is being sold for more, to those not in the know!

As an example of that, check out my Oukitel K5000 smartphone deal, £200 > £165 everyone on the planet still buying them at that price, on offer ((in fact I think they are £155 on amazon on offer now and still sell!)) they went down, with a double price discount, to £50... many benefited as the deal did not last long, but some didnt! Same as the recent 6TB WD deal, some members have been waiting a year to try and get one, at a deal price and according to their latest posts in the latest deal for it, they have got one!

If anything, upper Pepper management should be looking at giving out one of their special badges things, for all his / her effort, how about it @juliet_bravo

If I need to explain why it's a mediocre phone, then you have just confirmed that both you and the switch have no clue whatsoever..

Most of switchies posts are not deals, this one for instance is £20 more expensive than egc, but switch has decided to ignore that fact. Despite him/her claiming egc are the best thing since sliced bread. .

Also if you believe his posts, it would appear the he has bought every single phone ever released from every single merchant. Sorry I don't believe a word he post's.

This site has a certain amount of people posting non deals on a regular basis. Why is that?
If you don't think it is or is not great, just try and point out why for us simple folk.

Is there a chance that honor will be reduced again on John Lewis?

I posted a deal last week for eglobal, and went and bought every single one of their phones that they sell, didn't pay any customs, but had to buy another house to keep them in.

That was an expensive week
