HTC’s newest flagship smartphone, the One M9, has just recently been released to the masses. In our full review, we told you that it’s a great smartphone even though it felt extremely similar to its predecessor, the One M8. With that said, if you’re in the market for a
new handset, eBay’s latest Daily Deal might be something worth checking out. Right now, you can buy a refurbished unlocked 32GB AT&T HTC One M8 for just $269.99. Considering most carriers are still charging an arm and a leg for the device on a two-year contract, this is quite the steal.
Since this is an unlocked AT&T model, you’ll be able to activate it on either AT&T or T-Mobile’s networks. And if you take advantage of the deal, you’ll score free shipping, as well.

The HTC One M8 still has some great specifications by today’s standards. It has a 5-inch 1080p display, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and MicroSD expansion up to 128GB. It’s also running one of the latest versions of Android and will soon get the newest version of HTC Sense.
Since this is part of eBay’s Daily Deal, you’ll need to pick one up before midnight tonight to get the discount. If you’re interested, you can pick one up in Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver or Amber Gold by following the link below.
Although the HTC One M9 is considered the company’s latest “flagship” device, HTC has decided not to offer it in India. Instead, HTC will only be making its slightly larger version, the HTC One M9+, available to customers in India. HTC says the device will be available starting in early May at a price of ₹52,500 (≈ $842 USD). Many think this is a move by HTC to provide a device that can compete more favorably with the Samsung Galaxy S6.
The HTC One M9+ is equipped with a 5.2-inch 2K display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD, a fingerprint scanner, and a 20MP dual camera. Unlike the One M9, the One M9+ is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 processor.
India is the second major market to see the One M9+ after HTC released it to China last week. HTC South Asia president Faisal Siddiqui says the company has not decided on whether the model will be made available to markets outside of China and India, the two markets HTC targeted early on in the company’s planned release cycle.
In addition to the One M9+, HTC also revealed they will be releasing the HTC One E9+ to the market in India. The One E9+ comes with a 5.5-inch 2K screen, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage expandable to 2TB and the same Helio X10 processor. The One E9+ also has a 20MP rear-facing camera. The One E9+ is dual-sim capable. HTC has not announced pricing for the device, but it is expected to be available from major retailers in the second half of May.
Finally, for consumers who may not need a top-tier device, HTC is also making the HTC Desire 326G available in May as well. The Desire 326G has a 4.5-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage expandable to 32GB, an 8MP rear camera, and is dual-sim capable. HTC did not announce pricing for this device either.

It wasn’t too long ago that HTC had a reputation for being pretty horrid when it came to updating their Android devices, but this all changed starting with the HTC One M7. Upon release of said device, HTC promised two years of update support and they’ve kept that promise. Unfortunately, a new Tweet from Mo Versi indicates that the M7’s days of updates are over.
According to the HTC VP of Product Management, Android 5.1 is coming to the One M7 Google Play Edition, but not to the standard M7. To be fair, HTC has done a great job with updating the handset over the years, starting with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and ending with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Still, Android 5.1 seems less like a luxury update and more like an essential one, if only because it fixes much of what was broken with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
@kennymaclean Only the GPE version of M7 will receive 5.1. Our target is early April. Thanks.

At least as far as my own Nexus 5 is concerned, Android 5.0 Lollipop was barely usable in its original form, and yet now works like a dream since updating to Android 5.1. Seems like a small slap in the face for One (M7) owners that will never see the crucial bug fixes found in 5.1. Then again, many of the issues that are found on stock Android devices might not have been a problem for HTC owners in the first place. That and with the phone turning two years old, many users are probably getting ready to upgrade to something newer anyhow.
What do you think of the news? Feel that HTC should release one more update to Android 5.1, or can’t blame them for calling it quits? For M7 owners, what do you make of this news?
HTC will be hosting an event tomorrow called “Uh-Oh,” and if it’s anything like HTC Advantage that they did last year with the M8, this will be another program to offer you a one-time replacement of your device in case you bust it up. The “Uh-Oh” program goes a bit beyond six months of cracked screen replacements, though.
The broken phone coverage period will reportedly be extended to a full year instead of six months, and it does cover everything that happens to the phone, including water damage, not just busted glass. There are a handful of other benefits that will come along with this new program, too, including support for switching carriers. The details are a little fuzzy on that, but it’d be nice if HTC could help further subsidize the price of a device if you wanted to jump to another carrier halfway through your contract.
There’s also supposedly a trade-in program for devices in the works that will offer potential buyers up to $100 towards a new HTC One. HTC certainly won’t be the first (or last) to try to use trade-in incentives to switch other customers over to their brand of devices.

After months of rumors, conjecture, and an endless supply of leaks, the HTC One M9 is a reality. HTC today announced its latest flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress,
Keeping in line with the specifications that we’ve come to hear about over the last few weeks, the One M9 is more evolution than revolution. That’s quite alright, however, as you don’t want to stray too far from one of the highest rated smartphones of the last few years.
Powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense UI 7, the phone features a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display. Internally we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM and XXGB storage.
In terms of cameras, the One M9 boasts a 20-megapixel rear camera with a 4.0-UltraPixels front-facing camera. You’ll also find a sapphire scratch-resistant glass to protect the sensor as well as some software to enhance the images. Speaking of which, the One M9 is able to capture 4K video. HTC promises the best selfie and video chat experience on the market.
As for custom HTC experiences, the M9 boasts an enhanced BoomSound with 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio Surround. Thanks to Harman/Kardon and AllPlay integration, the phone plays nicely with speakers and other connected devices.
The Dot View Case is back however it’s smarter than before. Users can choose from a variety of colors; customization features include personalized messages and games, too.
The HTC One M9 will go on sale later this month (March) in Asian Pacific however there’s no indication of pricing. Color options include dark gunmetal grey, all gold, and pink.
The various U.S. carriers are expected to soon announce intentions to support the One M9.
It appears a journalist at MWC 2015 has inopportunely (or opportunely for us) released a video detailing the HTC One M9 a day early, even going so far as to compare HTC‘s latest flagship with its two predecessors, the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7. It’s a very brief overview at two minutes, but […]
