AndroidGuys found the HTC 10 to be among the best smartphones to date in our review last year and we believe it remains a very good phone. Still the HTC 10 was never a truly popular phone. Most likely the thing that kept most customers from flocking to buy the phone was the hefty $700 price tag.
But if you’re willing to buy the phone from Sprint now, you’ll be able to do so for a mere $240. And you don’t even have to be a Sprint subscriber to do so. Actually, you can simply walk into one of the carrier’s participating stores, pay up and leave with a shiny new HTC 10. Easy-peasy!
The handset can be unlocked, so it can be used on other carriers’ networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. Still, there’s a caveat here – in order to be unlocked, the device needs to be active on the Sprint network for a minimum of 50 days.
As for Sprint subscribers, they have the option of buying the HTC 10 for $0 down and then $10/month for the next two years. The deal is available both online and brick and mortar stores.
This sounds like a very good considering the HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch display with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440), 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with microSD extension.
Sure, there’s an older Snapdragon 820 on the inside, but on the bright side, the phone uses a stand-alone DAC as well as a headphone amp. It also has dual speakers and a 12-megapixel/5-megapixel camera combo, both sporting optical image stabilization.
Is the HTC 10 worth $240 in 2017? What do you think?
