HTC One M7 now $149.99 off-contract from Best Buy – Here’s the catch
Best Buy is offering a sweet deal on the older HTC One M7, selling the blue version of the handset for just $149.99 without a contract.
Considering the specs and features of the HTC One M7, even if it's no longer HTC's newest flagship, this deal is pretty attractive. The HTC One M7 made its debut back in 2013 and was widely considered one of the hottest smartphones at the time, receiving high praise for its superior design and powerful internals. Even now, nearly two years later, the One M7 is still a very capable smartphone that will deliver great performance.
As a reminder, the HTC One M7 released back in 2013 sports a 4.7-inch LCD display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz under the hood. Other specs include 32GB of internal storage capacity, 2GB of RAM, a 4-megapixel UltraPixel rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), 4G LTE, and HTC BoomSound, among the highlights. On the software side, the handset should soon receive an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
With an HTC One M8 already on the market for a good while and a next-generation One M9 on the way, however, it makes sense for retailers to cut the price of the older model. Ahead of the HTC One M9 debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in early March, Best Buy is now offering the One M7 for just $149.99 contract-free.
There is, however, a catch worth pointing out: Best Buy is selling the AT&T or Verizon HTC One M7 in blue for $149.99. This means that although the pricing is valid for the off-contract smartphone, you'd still be locked on either AT&T or Verizon's network.
Other color options of the HTC One M7, meanwhile, are available at $199.99 without a contract from Best Buy. The same price goes for the blue version of the smartphone on Sprint.
The HTC One M7 may not be the latest and greatest smartphone out there anymore, but at $149.99 without a contract it definitely brings great value for the money, even if it's not unlocked. It remains unclear just for how long this offer will be available, but interested customers can take advantage of it now on Best Buy's website at this link.
