Now £126, gsm arena said rrp was 280€
Opened mines tonight, 1st point to note, EU charger, doesn't bother us but may annoy some. Feels a lot more than asking, better than the Moto G5 it replaces but nearly half the price. Well chuffed.
Just for mine, lol. Didn’t expect such a rapid delivery considering it came from Germany.
My handset is expected 28th January and has been dispatched.
let down by the battery
No problem mate
Just ordered the Mate 10 Pro for a grand total of £134.99. Maybe more than I wanted to spend but I need a replacement phone for now and for the specs, I couldn't say no. Like you said in your Xiaomi MI 8 Lite thread, 6GB of RAM and 128GB for this price is nothing to whinge about. Shame voucher codes didn't work but cashback has tracked so thanks Switchy. (y)
It's like new. I couldn't find a mark on the thing... Case... Back... Screen etc. It said grade b, I don't think they had anything other than b.
Yes that is dual SIM. That's great. What is the cosmetic condition of your phone? Did you order the grade A or B?
Mine says SIM 1 and SIM 2... I'll put up pic I haven't tried it yet but in settings I can select different ringtones etc for each SIM.
Me too. The Desire HD, then the One. Prob the best screen ever (such natural colours).
Nice 60-ohm cans, mine were cheap Goldrings (that I still use to watch telly after midnight, very long cable - not very audiophile)
Yeah, I recently got some Koss KPH30i, about $26, had to pay about £12 in Vat and Admin fee. They sound great though, in hindsight I should have bought multiple pairs to even out the Admin fee.
For the adventurous folk out there, this works perfectly with the Pixel Experience ROM. Installing a custom ROM should also get rid of the camera shutter sound. Brilliant phone.
I paid more than £10 in customs for a pair of imported headphones, worth about £50 (shouldn't have bothered)
I bought one and received it this morning. Slightly scuffed around the edges, 1 small (1.3cm), scratch on the front which was a bit annoying when I first saw it but since switching it on it hasn't bothered me at all. It is incredibly slippy and will slide off anything not 100% level so it will need a case if you're even slightly clumsy. These are back to £289.99 on their website right now. All in all a fantastic buy, props to the OP :) (highfive)
https://store.musicmagpie.co.uk/warranty It's a UK company.
Has anyone used the 12m warranty from this seller? Is it one of those send to China, have to pay postage, phone is stuck for 6 months type of company? There's no information on the eBay page about warranty.
Htc have excellent cameras. I can say first hand there are certain conditions where the htc 10 takes a better picture than the Huawei p20 pro!
The camera on this is the same as a pixel 2 (much better selfie camera on this)
These ever officially got Pie?
Still 4 available, check the app
Heat, excellent phone, A1 build quality.
My current phone. Love it, gonna miss it when I upgrade soon.
Wish it was dual sim
You are welcome looks a very good deal
Thanks mate (y)
Heat added good price (y)
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.
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
at ebuyer "ex- display" = Returned.
Currently £122.47 on Amazon
Out of stock (flirt)
Any good this phone?
Bezels of oblivion
I have not used old HTC phones but used M8/M9, HTC 10, and U11 and U11 is best in my opinion..previous htc phones was average in battery life and camera though sound/software was still great....it personally come down to our preference that we we do like most in phones i.e camarea, design, sound, battery life, price to spec ratio, software etc
I had the M8 and it was a fantastic phone. I swapped it for a M10 and I am well disappointed. It's slow and the battery on it is crap. My works note 8 is brill. I am reluctant to touch another HTC.
The Desire HD was a great phone weighing in at 4.3 inches and 800 resolution. One Plus seem to have taken the baton from HTC in terms of value for money.
Excellent battery life . Its capacity only 3000mAh but getting same screen on time what i used to get from p20 pro and others phones with much bigger battery
I had that, was the the beginning of the end of the iPhone with the desire. Well ahead of its time
I'm a Htc fan, but theyfailed to listen to loyal customers, threw away its main usp: metal phones, front firing speakers and proper sense with Htc made apps, no network selling. Then followed the dull design and stock android root with Google data mining apps. Thus they have nothing to set their phone apart from any others on market apart from big upfront cost.
Hahah that made me giggle
Still are. Just because they don't sell anywhere near as much as Samsung etc doesn't mean they're not good, just marketed very poorly. I have this phone and loathe to trade it when i'm due early next year as it's the best I've ever had by some margin.
Pray it never goes wrong. You'll end up in customer service hell. Trapped between their Polish repair centre and Egyptian call centre. Awful company.
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.
A year old HTC Android One device.... I'd take a Mi A2 instead thanks
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!
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.
Behold, my B grade came through today. (annoyed)
CEX grade C - signs of wear.
Nice one. Fast Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4 GB ram, good camera. Only worry would be battery.
You should add its grade C in title
Its not a bad price for a decent phone, but a grade C CEX phone will look like its done long term service in Aleppo!
Yup, I have the blue and the white. Nice.
It’s a typo. Good and unique phone for the money, I’d have one at this price!
Says 5" screen but is 5.7" iirc :D
I am using this phone from last 6/8 months..excellent camera and comparable to pixel 2 if install gcam mod, better speaker than pixel 2, better battery life than pixel 2 software is great. Only issue i find is its bit slippery in hand
Many thanks - I'll work my way through this and hopefully it will help.
I've also had HTC's for quite a few years and bought my HTC 11 when ebay offered the 20% off everything voucher code end of December last year. Prior to that I was also having problems with my HTC 10 and contacted HTC who told me how to do various types of resets which seemed to remedy the problem but it did make me lose confidence and worry whenever a software update notification was received. I've not had any such problems with the HTC 11. I'm not a heavy user (odd phone call/texting/plenty of browsing) and easily get a full day's use. With the voucher I paid a similar price as this for the 128/6gb model. If it's any use to you I've managed to find the email from HTC with their guidance in trying to resolve the battery issues: "Thank you for contacting HTC Customer Support Center. We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your HTC 10. Let's start with some quick troubleshooting, hope it will help you solve the problems you are having on your smartphone. 1.Check for updates from Menu> Settings> About> Software Updates (preferably using Wi-Fi) 2.Calibrate the battery: Charge the device for at least 10 minutes •With the device truly OFF while still being plugged into the wall outlet, push in and hold volume up and volume down AND power button, for 2 minutes. Device will boot up, and battery/charging logic are re-calibrated. 3. If your phone overheating install 3rd party application named: Battery Temperature C and check the battery temperature. Please note that the normal operating temperature for HTC phones is between 30 and 55 degrees. If you still find it uncomfortable, you can follow the tips below to decrease the temperature: 1) When not in use, turn off Wi-Fi/ BT/ GPRS/ GPS. 2) Shut down the applications running in the background that you’re not using. 3) If this happens when using a specific 3rd party app, you can consider removing it. 4. Try test the battery: A) Charge the phone up to 100%; B) Enable Airplane mode in settings and make sure that the phone is not connected to the charger C) Dial * # * # 3424 # *#*, press “Accept”, select the "More" below. On the next page, enable "Battery test" –press "Run". After that, the instruction will appear. Press the "back" key, until you see the picture: the phone is on the table, and the timer is above it. As soon as you saw this image, please put the phone on the table and for an hour while testing is in progress and do not touch the device D) The timer will start counting from 1 hour until it reaches 0, during this time, do not touch the phone; After that, look at the results: A) If the battery level has reached 75% or is less, you need to send the device to the repair center B) If the battery level is more than 90-95%, in order to optimize battery performance, you need to do the following: 1.Go to Settings> Power> Battery Usage and check the applications that use the battery the most and turn them off. 2. Make sure you turn the “Power Saver” on (Settings> Power>Power saver) 3.Turn off 4G on your device. Because when you have 4G on and you’re not in an area with 4G coverage, your phone is always asking for 4 G and searching uses a lot of battery life. 4. Turn Off Mobile Data Entirely (When You Can) The worse the coverage, the faster your battery drains. This happens because your phone’s antenna has to work that much harder to try to find and maintain a signal. 5. One of the biggest battery Android battery life drainers and it has to do with an app we all use: Facebook. There’s only one solution to this problem: Uninstall the Facebook app and use m.facebook.com. 6.If you rarely use your phone for GPS, you probably don’t need your phone to constantly ping satellites for a service that you’re not using anyway. Head to Settings -> Location Services and turn GPS off. 7. If you don’t use any Bluetooth devices, turn Bluetooth off to save battery life. 8. If you don't use WI-FI , go ahead and turn Wi-Fi off to save some extra battery life 9.Use power adapter that came with your device. Other power adapters and chargers can charge slowly, not at all, or damage your device or battery. 10. To reduce battery drain when you're not using your device's screen, set a shorter time before your screen turns off. Open your device's Settings>Display>screen timeout>pick 15 seconds or 30 seconds 11. Reduce screen brightness: Settings>Display>Brightness level>choose Automatic brightness 12.Turn off live wallpapers 13.Sometimes the downloaded applications conflicts with the phone's OS making it not to perform in a normal way, so please try to use the phone in the safe mode by following the steps below: 1.Press and hold “power key “till you see the options of Power off and restart option 2. Press and hold on the screen on the power off option till you can reboot to safe mode 3. “Safe Mode “text will appear on the lower left of screen. If you followed these steps and the issue is resolved, it means that you have downloaded 3rd party application downloaded from the internet which conflicts with you device OS. Please remove it from: Menu>settings>applications >click on the applications and un-install them If the issue is not from the external application please try to perform a complete reset of the device(Factory Data Reset) NOTE: Resetting your handset to factory or manufacturer's default setting will delete all the data stored on your phone memory; Remember to back up your phone information and settings first if possible.

Well at least the Nokias can double as a chisel if they stop working.
I've had mine for 6 months and so far no issues. There's no such thing as a disaster proof phone from any manufacturer - I have a long history of badly malfunctioning Nokia phones
