HTC M8 unlocked so AT&T and T-Mobile on Sale for $270

HTC One M8 on sale for $269.99 unlocked

ANDROID

HTC One M8 in hand
Now that the HTC One M9 has arrived, itís time for retailers to begin heaving large discounts on the HTC One M8 to clear out any stock that theyíve got left. And heave eBay has.

An eBay seller is currently offering the HTC One M8 for just $269.99 without a contract. The model thatís being sold is the AT&T version, but it is unlocked, so you could use it on some other GSM carriers. This version has 850/1900/2100MHz 3G and 700/850/AWS/1800/1900/2600MHz LTE support, which means you could use this model on T-Mobile in the U.S., though youíre only going to get 3G if you live in an area with refarmed 1900MHz HSPA coverage.

The One M8 may be HTCís last-gen flagship, but itís still a perfectly respectable Android smartphone, offering a 5-inch 1920x1080 display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, microSD card slot, and front-facing BoomSound speakers. As of this writing, only the Gunmetal Gray version is available for purchase, but at $270 unlocked, itís tough to get too upset about only having one color option.

Ooh. Tempting. The M8 has gotten the Lollipop update, right?

Not much has changed between the M8 and M9. That price is a steel.

I also saw the Note 4 for $379. It's a refurb but another great price. If I didn't have Jump I would probably be going that route.

Hmm. I like the Note 4, too. But the M8 is supposed to be one of the best smartphones from last year. Hmmmmm.

I liked the G3 over the M8. Samsung is really stepping up putting out some nice phones. imo

I have played with the G3 a bit, too. I think I just want a new toy.

Pretty soon the G4 will be out with leather backings. http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/g...|dev|phone|gen that should tempt you.

I looked at the Nexus 6 recently. Too big for me.

Hey, tbay, if I can get that G4 with football leather on the back then I might consider it.

Lol. I'm just not feeling the G4 leather. Maybe in person I might like it. I think you can get non leather backs. I'm really happy with the S6 Edge. I'll probably stick with Sammy and get the Note 5 when it comes out. LoL

Kinda reminds me of what my wife says, "Are you always happy to see me?" I just keep quiet. Not mentioning it is my phone in my pocket.

Size isn't everything now a days. As most phones in the future will be going BIG. I am seeing very few 5 inch phones on the market compared to a few years ago. I thought I would stay with something like the G2 with it's 5.5 screen, but alas I gave into the 6 incher Nexus. It is big that much is for sure. But, I've learned hand gymnastics pretty well now.

That is a first as you change phones as much as I change underwear.

I was one of the first to get a big phone the LG Flex. Some peeps thought thats way to big. I said that's what she said. Now it's reversed as far as the phone part. Hehe.

I'm happy with all my phones for few months. Lol. You never know with me but I blame T-Mobile....I had a Jump to use so I feel the need to use it. Pays off the balance I owe. I even use the wife's Jump. I know I'm bad but she gets some nice phones.
