Meeee, this guy :D
Is there even anyone hipster enough left out there to buy an HTC phone? ;)
Unfortunately HTC are killing themselves with their unacceptable lack of updates. Is a shame
' Für einen späteren Zeitpunkt gespeichert' = I'll give it a go sometime, like good HTC fan
It’s just a shame. I had high hopes. I want Nokia to succeed. (skeptical)
Well the returns process is there for a reason I guess.
Yep. Came with CeX own plug and cable, no box. Not impressed with the camera, fingerprint reader or general responsiveness. It’s going back as I’m concerned it will be black listed within a month.
It probably won't come with box/accessories. May have some cosmetic damage but nothing major.
I'm sure it still is great phone, even before bug fixes - bar has been set so high by rest of flagships. Reviewers naturally very demanding & knowledgeable too, bloody difficult to make cut to 'best buy' or 5-star rating, and competition so fierce.
Only gave up my M7 because the battery was going dodo after 18 months.
Mine too, that phone set the precedent for the design that came for the next few years, it was a gorgeous phone, and the phone I kept for the longest, which is some achievement. :)
I've still got a blue m7 in a drawer, was a great phone. Size was perfect for me. Had an m9 which I didn't like so much, doubt I'll ever have another HTC though
My favourite phone was my htc one m7! Had 4 Samsungs since! (Work) it's a shame htc seemed to lose popularity.
Today is my last day with my HTC U Ultra. I absolutely love it, after all its updates etc it became a really good phone and I'm going to miss using it every day. I got a Samsung s9+ free with my new tv at xmas and was trying to sell it and stick with the HTC, but alas nobody wants to pay the extortionate amount I was trying to get etc. I know i'll like the S9+ but its a wrench leaving the U behind ... I might have to go sob a bit in a corner somewhere .....
Well I read Limetropic’s grade D and it says ‘not working’! XS is no benefit to me, it’s an iPhone X for all intents. XR just seems budget and a regression. So I’d probably settle on an X or XS Max, not sure if it’s too big though.
They certainly ain't cheap mate! But yeah D is a bit of a no no. The XS seems better value, the XR even more so.
Thanks! Grade D (lol) that’s a definite pass! I can live with a Vodafone unit as that’s where I’ll be in a month’s time anyway but O2 is easy to unlock too. I’m wondering if 64GB will rapidly frustrate me - lots of decisions to be made.

Are you going to suggest CeX? I would probably be fine with that, end of the day a phone gets used anyway so few scratches means I don’t need to panic over it myself. Mine was mint but I have micro-scratches on the body from the case. I am thinking maybe I’ll jump to the XS Max for now as they’re reasonably priced.
They did, they did.. U12 plus was their last hurrah methinks.
Sadly HTC will be gone soon despite being profitable in 2018. It used to make good phones...
It didn’t: https://m.gsmarena.com/htc_one_a9-7576.php iPhone 6 was a year before in 2014. There was loads of coverage in the media about how Samsung were the ones copying and HTC just cloned it almost identically!
This came out before the iPhone 6 I believe.
Yeah, I remember seeing it in adverts thinking what a good looking phone. How sad.
I think if it had launched at this price it might have sold a bit more, not sure it's really a deal if you can get better supported 2018 flagships for sometimes less money. Shame as I've loved HTC over the years. I just hope they get to make some great Pixel phones that don't get ruined by Google's trademark lack of polish.
Due an upgrade from my HTC U11. but, what to go for? Not keen on Samsung or Apple or any of these Chinese models. Looks like I'll have to stick with U11 & go sim only deal?
Ha ha Xiaomi Note 5 looks like an iPhone clone. Agreed though, it is quite a large chin, considering the fingerprint sensor is at the back. Not sure why, boomsound maybe?
I'd avoid HTC for now. They used to be my go to handset, but unfortunately they are lacking in updates and most other areas now.
Only translucent nightfall (lol) jeez what a name Also only £380 for a very good condition amazon France, and £502 very good condition at amazon uk
Thanks again, updated :)
@Maevoric btw this game is also FREE on Gear VR and maybe GO
Great game ,super price .just buy it. (y)
Thanks mate, appreciated (y) (y) (y)
Just pushed it over the heat level :) Thank you ;)
Thanks, was going to order til i read this.
Thought not, nevermind. 8) freya = freya stark - bo = garbo. Both (strong) back in the day. (y) ;) Not nearly as inventive as your un. Haha.
Looks OK, even better with the accessories and box (y)
Received my Grade B 7 Plus today. Very impressed. The only marks that can be seen are the ones on the back as you can see in the pics. Despite being advertised as no accessories, the phone came in it’s box with sealed charging cable, earphones and genuine case!
Heat for the effort
Yeah nothing wrong with few minor changes here and there compared to other UI's
I only feel big difference between Android 6 (M8) and 7/8 (U Ultra). 6 feels like stone age whereas 7/8 feels refined enough for me - & multitasking is possible
M8 was a great phone in its time, but my point being about the u11 plus is, they haven't changed the UI forever, so it just felt like I was back in 2013, most oems tweak/improve their respective UI, htc must have just thought "well it worked in 2013, it will work now"
Larger, super LCD 6 panel, smaller bezels, much bigger battery, 18/9 ratio, louder speakers, AptX HD, IP68, Bluetooth 5, Project Treble, etc
Same chipset, lower quality LCD panel. Only thing it mostly improved was speakers
Heat added as this is the phone I would have bought my misses a few months ago for 270 had the Moto Z2 force not come at black Friday time for 200 :P either way at the original price this phone was overpriced. What really would have made this amazing was to keep android one on it like the predecessor as I'm pretty sure with the 'light' sense that is on here, this won't get a single os update from HTC. Sad times :( HTC have shown to bin the devices that down sell well and stop supporting it even though customers out there have bought them, example being the HTC u ultra
No, just keep the G6 plus... The G6 however I'd say get this.
Seems a good reduction Mrswitch, heat (y) Had a HTC Sensation years ago, buggy as hell. Would you choose this, Redmi Note 7 or the Moto G6 plus that was up few nights ago from Amazon.es, have it pre ordered but plenty time to cancel ?
Yep, me too. :)
I'd take this over the new moto G7 and save £50 if I was in the market for this type of phone.
This was an equivalent to S8+/Note 8/Mate 10/Pixel 2XL, quite a different league to compact phones - don't get me wrong, I like XZ1C but processor was kind of only thing in common here.
Screen size, looks, camera, premium quality. To name but a few.
Genuinely I haven't looked in detail at the XZ1 compact but I had been searching for a 128GB dual SIM phone at a reasonable price and the XZ1 compact didn't appear - if it did have these essentials (for me) at £130 I would have been delighted. I ended up with a Pocophone.
snapdragon 835 in sony xz1 compact for 130£ what makes up for rest of 150£?
Wow, that was a very very good price, heat before you expire
Just today deal came out on this adapter, just rebranded by Google, but same one hotukdeals.com/deals/genuine-google-pixel-2-xl-usb-c-digital-to-35-mm-headphones-adapter-749-talk-line-sales-ebay-3181556 Been told HTC still sells its own online bit cheaper, £6
Not to mention that this device was basically a larger HTC 10 with most of the research gone into the design of the device without considering the spec sheet which is what other manufacturers at that price point had going for it. Again all of this considered, it still is not a 'bad' device on its own. Large nice screen, stereo speakers, great camera, nice second screen.
It could have sold well had it been priced correctly. Priced as a flagship at launch (£500) but wasn't HTC's flagship for 2017. Big marketing mistake, it could have been king of midmarket at £300. Later that year price collapsed at same pace as HTC, it ended up almost being sold at a loss, despite being fine phone. Premium brand, premium device.
Incorrect, they practically gave up on the phone because it didn't even sell well, has to probably be the worst supported phone by a mainstream manufacturer in a long time and I was very disappointed by that. This is bad practice, as a business you should continue to support the customers that have actually supported you in the first place, just not fair. Other major OEMs may be slow, but they eventually do support them for at least 2 years
Can't find it at similar price anymore brand new
at ebuyer "ex- display" = Returned.
Currently £122.47 on Amazon
Out of stock (flirt)
Any good this phone?
I have to smile when I see a refurb memory card/motherboard etc, who on earth would have the time and facilities to refurb a motherboard, it would be scrapped lol
Lol, yeah I agree, but I csnt tell them to use the word used, and so it is what it is I guess.
I think refurb is an inacurate word for these things, they are second hand, purchased a few refurb iphones over the past year or so from various companies, each one had little problems, and more so each had a battery that was way below the 100 percent that a refurb would give, to me refurbished means made to be as new, internally and externally. Used/second hand is the word they should be using
Good deals, Switchy. Mooched over to look at the Nokia 7 Plus, but.......it had gone. As DT might tweet - Sad. :)
Good effort as always
Such a shame HTC have lost their way so much the past couple of years. Their phones have so much potential but they just never get it quite right any more :(
Thanks i will keep a look out for these, or a Sony XZ
S9 or HTC U11 U12 plus is not much different to u11 or u11 plus and you can have them for less than £200 Camera on these is very much close to pixel 2/3
Great phone, still overpriced
Sonys, Razer, Galaxys
It was okay but nothing to write home about. If I was at work and then went out in the evening, then I'd have to recharge it in the afternoon to ensure it lasted the day.
How was the HTC battery life?
Thanks @Mrswitch - you too :)
Lol, we are all different, and some of those really annoy me, but give me this over stock and emui any day :D Have a good evening.
Thanks for getting back to us @Mrswitch (y) To be honest I have taken your favourite aspects of miui for granted - my favourite miui features are the built in (and usable!) data manager/counter, the easy to use cleaner app, built in virus protection (and you can choose from different, decent virus definitions) and there are a lot of settings options. But... The Google assistant frequently forgets my default region, so I get an American voice instead of the English one, if it works at all. The permissions and app settings are ridiculous: I want apps to work how they are intended, not have to fiddle about with settings in miui, which still don't fix all of the problems. Memory management/battery management is both a blessing and a curse. Nova launcher skins the home screen, but I find miui ugly in the rest of the OS (and for some reason Nova launcher keeps crashing). The miui clock app is brilliant for setting and deactivating alarms, etc, but why on earth don't Xiaomi fix the bug in every clock widget that gives the upcoming alarm time as "00:00"? Before this turns into a TL;DR rant, I'll sign off ;)
Tried to get Currys to price match this deal over the phone, so that I could use up some Currys gift cards. Was told the eBay store (Currys-Ebay) has nothing to do with Currys, so no price match. Sucks, but is what it is.
This was £350 on boxing day i think
Oof. Chilly in here. What's putting people off the lowest price this has ever been?
Ah yeah massively, give me a redmi note 5 over this any day :D
Quality mid-ranger, good find Mrswitch - very competitive field though
I'm looking for a new mobile to replace my Axon 7, as the battery needs charging a few times a day. This looks interesting as the audio has been given good reviews. I need something with good Dolby Sound after using my Axon 7 and loving the sound quality.
Ah yeah massively, its weird to think that a brand like xiaomi, is now more popular than the once massive htc.
Thanks for the heat! It's different as it's no longer people's first choices. Xiaomi and Huawei have taken over as alternatives to the usual big brands with HTC falling further down the list. Shows how quick the mobile market moves!
"There are of course cheaper alternatives from Xiaomi etc but it's good to try something different!" Love that line. Since when were htc something different? Lol I'd say xiaomi are still the 'something different' to most hukder's I guess! Fyi, I've voted hot, as I love me an htc. 🔥
