Does anyone remember when HTC used to be good?
All HTC Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
Great phone, unfortunately HTC has now to play underdog which means offering more bang for buck (remember Huawei last year?) 499 GBP won't cut it at this stage I'm afraid, even though you're getting more quality than Chinese players, U12+ after teething problems now maybe on a par with Huawei's flagships (that now command prices HTC's used to just recently)

Get Deal link not working for me. Found it HERE.
That's a brilliant price. HTC are criminally underrated. I wouldn't have anything but a HTC
Just feeding back on this having purchased the phone. The condition is superb! It's literally just a phone in a box: no frills, not even a charger, but it runs like a dream and looks good as new. I'd highly recommend this device at this price. It matches my gf's Galaxy S8 but at 1/3 of what she paid. It replaced a Moto G4 Plus, but is miles and miles better in every way.
You're getting a great phone, hope as good as new
Will do! Thanks Raja - look forward to getting my hands on it shortly
I bought one grade A from this seller in the past and it was pristine condition and this phone give excellent battery life which is comparable to those phones who have got bigger capacity of 4000mAh..hope you get same experience..keep us updated
Thank you! Just bought this. Was looking for a budget phone upgrade and this fits the bill. After hours of research I hadn't even considered this model as as I thought it was out of my price range. Fingers crossed the condition really is Grade A, but more from a battery/screen/lens perspective than any scuffs or marks to the body.
Best price for this is now €329.99 == £295
The headline price ought to be £250. The posted price assumes using a fee free card and not that many people have one.
First time for everything (unicorn)
HTC gone down the hill I remember those days when they where good now there way behind other big brands
That game is compatible with Windows mixed reality headsets like the Samsung Odyssey Plus but for some reason it is not listed as being so in steam. Same thing for other games. They are compatible but not listed as being so on Steam. You can see the person in the video playing the game on WMR headset.
Hmm I have checked most games and they only are only supported with the htc vive and oculus rift and only some are by windows reality I have put two pictures of one of the biggest vr games and that does not support the Samsung
Of course it has the sensors. They are built into the headset instead of being separate like they are on the Vive pro. Not sure you are correct about steam compatibility either. Most steam games not compatible? I highly doubt that but I'm not sure as I don't have the headset and sounds like neither do you.
The Samsung odyssey plus isn’t compatible on most steam/pc games also I doesn’t have the sensors like the htc so That probably means it can’t detect if you are moving forward or backwards
What a rip off. The new Samsung Odyssey Plus is much better than this and costs hundreds of pounds less. Has to be imported though but you're still going to save hundreds even after you pay customs and VAT.
Cheers heatt, was mulling over this one since yesterday evening.... and now they're out of stock. Loved the look and specs, not a brand following 🐑 so doesn't matter if htc or else. Price was great also, but no user reviews so hesitated bit too long. Bugger
It's pretty much the same phone as the HTC U12+ but with double the storage (128GB). Has an excellent camera, great audio (no headphone jack though), Snapdragon 845 and 6GB RAM, near stock android, no notch. It has an LCD screen and you need to get used to the digital buttons, but it's a great device overall. Won't be good for reselling though because it's android and HTC
Is the exodus any good as an android device? I understand crypto cold storage perk is an extra but given recent burst not necessarily most exciting feature.. Cheers
That rules me out, wouldn't know where to begin.
Yeah it's £566 on HTC club, someone posted a deal for it too, I think. There's no restriction in buying the exodus so anyone can get it, you just have to pay in cryptocurrency XD
A year old HTC Android One device.... I'd take a Mi A2 instead thanks
Got u 11, Great phone
Beat everyone to it
I currently own the HTC U11, fantastic phone, does the simple things well, so for me this is a bargain.
They still make mobiles?! ;)
Some decent savings there, but still quite overpriced. This is all in my opinion of course, thanks for the heads up though. I love a htc (y)
Still got a Desire x !! Use it as a back up now and again. (y)
OMG I remember the original HTC DESIRE properly one of the best phones I had and was like a few years ahead of its time I think. Late 2009 I must of had it
Thanks for posting, but the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is a much better phone, for only a few pounds more at Carphone Warehouse.. If you have your heart set on a HTC at this price point, grab a HTC 10 used for around £135 from Cex. I'd still stick with the Xiaomi though.
Haha, that would be awesome.
The phone company’s should be paying you commission (y) Not to sound like sam of london but Non-removable Li-Ion 2730 mAh battery :(
Not foldable as well! Shame (lol)
Bloody phone HTC dont buy
haha, sam_of_london has become a meme!
If you have VR it's well worth getting on the mailing list by subbing. Over the years I have had three different HTC Vives and probably paid for 2 months of subscriptions with them. Most VR games are short so you can really see if a game is worth kepping using the 5 game rental. They have given me :- 1) 8 months of free subscriptions though emailed codes 2) £8($10) for buying a few games (hopefully similar for being a subscriber on 20th November) 3) Free games Nevrosa, Everest, Shooty Fruity, Overview, Guns'n'Stories, Final Soccer VR, Arcade Saga, Front Defense, Super Puzzle Galaxy. (Plus that £8 bought me Together VR and a bit of Accounting+) The Vive Video player is the best 360 player imo, I have redeemed a few games with them and they also just show up in steam or Viveport shows all your steam vr games.
Yes I do about steam. Have you noticed, I had written '' so far'' and. "if I am not wrong" precisely. So, Would you kindly consider and explain what you know about this deal then, "Please". :)
'Just like Steam'? Do you even know how Steam works?!
*I tells ya
If you have never used Viveport then it's free as you can take out a 14 day free trial and then keep the free game at the end. If you pay £8.99 (not £9.99) for the month, it's like renting 5 games for the month (Games like Call to Starseed 1 and 2 which will be very short). You will then get $10 on Nov 20th for being subscribed. So it can be a free game if you take the free trial... FREE I tell you FREE!! ;)
I signed up for htc club but got no email or can't login, am I doing something wrong?
Yeah, honor are always in the mix for discounts on black Friday, so it's probably a good call.
perfect thanks for this - it was the one I was looking at as the strongest choice (esp since he will be using it for playing games etc. ) - will hold off for upcoming Black Friday deals hopefully be a bargain somewhere!
Go for the play, better processor, in fact flagship processor, great cameras, great battery life, and only £20more than this. It is 6.5" however.
Interested in this for my son's Christmas but I have the HTC U11 which seems to be glitchy and has put me off them slightly (every time there's an update something else stops working - last time it was the Google Play store!) - this or the Honor 8X or Honor Play are the other one's similar in price. Any advise/input would be welcome :-)
Keep wanting this to go on sale for psvr...can't believe you shelled out and never played it.
The Mi6 is 1080p @ 5.5", this is 720p stretched to 5.5". If you're going with 720p then get a smaller phone, so the pixels per inch number is larger.
How is it a good deal when there are objectively much better phones available for the same price? Finding a product for its cheapest price available isn't a deal. If that was the case, every single product would be on HUKD at any given time. Everything is at its cheapest somewhere.
Still awfully broken the last time I tried to buy it on Steam, cost £2.97 and I managed to get a refund. Constant crashes, that have work-arounds, but I wasn't willing to take the risk on it. (Deus Ex)
Mankind Divided was a bad game, it ends abruptly after 10 hours and requires a sequel. Stealth was way to easy. Each of the 3 DLC last 4 hours and they restart your characters progress with no choices carry over to the main game. This is suppose to be an immersive RPG! Eidos blew so much time and money on the pay2win breach mode that is now a free standlone and they expected the players to pay for that. It's a shame, the game could've been great but it isn't and 5 years wasted and requires another 5 years to finish!. Cypberpunk2077 shows us what it could've been like.
oos stock now, was enough of a deal price for someone
Bah - that's knackered my price I wanted to set on eBay for my used one. Heat though, It's a great phone for that money
hotukdeals.com/deals/nokia-7-plus-grade-a-refurbished-with-12-month-warranty-21299-from-argos-ebay-3056373 Nokia 7 Plus is no more a £300 phone than this is a '£700' one.
Nokia 7 Plus is a £300 phone.
I'd sooner try and get something like a Nokia 7 Plus or newer Android One device rather than a nearly 2 year old flagship with SD821 which is probably running out of updates.
Cracking phones, and a steal at this price even, cheers
Sorry @Mrswitch I forgot to vote hot as was too busy commenting! It's was at least £50 cheaper than an S8 but by no means £50 less of a phone. Camera, battery life, build and fingerprint scanner is better on U11 although lacks in software updates but that's to be expected due to staff cuts!
Great price and phone...not sure why it's going cold?!
Got this for the Mrs for about the same price from eBay. Great phone, much cheaper than the S8 which it is/was in direct competition with. Camera is very good (using Pixel Camera although not much better then stock). The themes are not brilliant, when these came out HTC was better than Samsung but like everything HTC does..... Samsung seems to do better now
Not sure why this has been expired? Still in stock at the listed price.
Oooh nice! Only letdown on this is supposed to be the display as it's LCD and the colour accuracy's supposed to be a bit off (it's also massive) but otherwise awesome. The camera is on par or very close to the Pixel 2 allegedly (it was originally going to be the Pixel 2 XL until Google flipped for LG instead). Edit: Super sexy translucent finish on the back as well that's actually real (unlike the Mi 8 Explorer Edition)
Because, for some , they aren't deal breakers. Android updates don't bother many, especially if the OS is running well as is. Security updates are a recent fad which some companies fake anyway, I run many android devices and due to not downloading dodgy content or visiting iffy sites I've had zero problems even on devices last updated in 2016. As for the screen, I've used the 11+ and found no issues in direct sunlight but for others used to amoled screens it's too dim. All phones have some small compromises, it doesn't mean the overall experience isn't excellent.
For some those are dealbreakers so how can it be brilliant?
It's not even a year old, they pretty much have to
Amusing but a bit self congratulatory without actually doing anything to PROVE his point - rather like most of the sparkies Ive met over the years ! ;)
