AT&T HTC One priced at $250, officially goes up for pre-order this week

It’s been a long time coming and where the HTC One was only every available for pre-register (not really the same as pre-order), it looks like AT&T will be first out the gate with official pre-orders for the device starting on Friday, April 5th. The 32GB version of the HTC One will be priced at $250 with a 2-year agreement and come in both silver and black. The 64GB version (the one I plan on picking up) wont be available until a later date, still to be announced.

    What has you picking up the One over the Galaxy S4 or the Nexus 4?

    • Chris Chavez

      I have the Nexus 4 and own the Galaxy S3. Both are great phones but I’ve played with the One long enough to know it’s faster than any phone I’ve used to date, and the hardware is amazing. SLCD 3 display, USB otg support, 64GB of storage and an awesome camera. It’s just about everything I could ask for in a phone.

      • Matthew Woehrle

        But how will it compare to the S4? Personally I never thought any phone i’ve played with a snapdragon processor could compare to another device with an exynos, but that’s my personal opinion. Though i haven’t got my hands on the HTC One yet so i can’t really compare, but I personally dislike everything about HTC besides their build quality.

        • Chris Chavez

          The S4 is like a quad-core S3 with higher def screen. It’s cool and all, I’m just over TouchWiz (Nature UX) and want something a little more premium feeling.
          Also, whatever you felt about HTC in the past (Sense or whatever), I invite you to try out the One. Sense is all new, minimized and overhauled. Can’t say I liked Sense 4 very much, but 5 is really nice (for not being able to have stock) :)

          • Chad Cardwell

            You decide on which color you’re getting? I like everything about the silver one except for the obnoxiously white sides, so I’m leaning towards black. However, I’m afraid the black will just be painted on and susceptible to chips/scratches.

          • DonMcCall

            If I remember correctly the black one is anodized aluminum, but I may be wrong. That being said, I will still be getting the silver due to the same concern about scratches.

          • Chad Cardwell

            Hrm… just found this YouTube vid on an xda thread questioning the scratch resistance of the black model. I suddenly feel a lot more comfortable w/ the black version now.

          • DonMcCall

            That’s what’s up! Looks like it’s just as resistant as the OG T-Mobile Razr! That changes my mind completely!

            I’m tired of black phones. -_-

          • bluevoodo


          • Chris Chavez

            Yup. Didn’t like the white plastic either. I’m going for black but like you said, hopefully it doesn’t chip like the One S (I’m trusting HTC learned their lesson on that one).

          • Matthew Woehrle

            I get where your coming from, but for the group of us that like to mod I always felt like it was better to get a non-htc device so you won’t have to worry about s-off. Plus once a dev implements a rom control like interface into the S4’s touchwiz, it becomes a little more premium, then all you need to do is install nova launcher and BAM…your all good :-)

          • No_Nickname90

            Does it still have the feature Internet Pass-Through?

          • bluevoodo

            Goddammit screw your preferences and get the S4, it has the extra cores what else could you want? huh?

      • DavidB23

        > “…Awesome camera…”
        You really think so? All the sample images I have seen are fuzzy and grainy. Id say the camera is a liability. gutsy idea; bad results.

  • wrceuro

    Even if HTC One is a better built phone they shot themselves in the head by realeasing it so late.

    • Chris Chavez

      Why? I’m still getting one.

    • irishrally

      huh? It’s already out in the UK and will be released in North America before the GS4.

  • Jordan Caviness


  • BigCiX

    Nice looking phone but I’m waiting on the Nexus. I don’t even care if its made by fisher price……just get me those damn updates!!!

    • Chris Chavez

      I was kinda in the same boat and while I think updates are super important, they’re not always a MUST have. I’m sure Key Lime Pie will blow our minds away but it doesn’t automatically make Jelly Bean sh*t.

      • No_Nickname90

        Yea. I didn’t mind GB for a while. Then I started realizing the cosmetic differences of ICS. So now I think ALL phones should at least have ICS.

        • Chris Chavez

          Yeah, I’d never go Gingerbread. I left that life far behind me… lol

      • Jason Farrell

        KLP uh huh uh huh

      • Craig Poland

        That is a very good point, I never looked at it that way! I do know that I will never do another Samsung phone again HTC is where I belong and I can not wait to get my grubby little fingers on this phone and get rid of my Galaxy S 3!

  • toomuchgame441

    I’d pay $250 for a HTC Hero on a new 3 year agreement

  • Dustin Daughters

    They should’ve priced it below the S4

    • Chris Chavez

      I’m sure by the time the S4 hits AT&T, the One will see a price drop.

      • sean76

        I so agree with Chris on this comment! HTC and at&t may be jumping the gun and pricing the ONE a tad too high IMO. Once the S4 releases and the flood gates open, the ONE will most likely see a price drop.

    • DavidVarghese

      The S4 will probably sell for around the same price, as did the S3 when it first came out… Give it a few weeks for Amazon to put the One up for sale, and it’ll be $150-$200 in no time.

  • No_Nickname90

    I’m still mad that only AT&T is getting the 64GB version. But I’m willing to sacrifice. I’m going to make space. I want that phone. It’s a media heads dream. I also wanted the HTC Surround. The one with the slide out Yamaha speakers. Oh my gosh!! LoL!!

    • bluevoodo

      I thought no one remembered that phone

    • james cruz027

      If you think Ernest`s story is shocking,, 3 weaks-ago my moms best friend also easily made $4070 workin twelve hour’s a week in their apartment and they’re classmate’s step-mother`s neighbour was doing this for 8-months and got more than $4070 part-time at their computer. applie the steps available at this link,…….

  • Cory Wilson

    $250? Fully subsidized? $50 more gets you a nexus, without a 2 year contract.

    • Chris Chavez

      For some people, AT&T is the best network in their area and don’t mind sticking with them for 2 years. Also, the hardware on the One out-specs the Nexus 4 (although software-wise, the Nexus will always have the upper hand).

      • Timbo1

        ATT runs fine on the Nexus dont confuse anyone now. :p. Something about the One’s design I don’t care for in pics maybe its one of those things that is better in person…….and $250 on contract is a typical AT$T overpriced fail on price point……just saying

  • sean76

    I’m going to wait for the 64GB version! For now my iphone 5 and Nexus 4 are keeping me busy and entertained. But I really need at&t to hurry up, I have someone who wants to buy my Nexus ASAP…

    • Timbo1

      screw selling the Nexus sell that childs toy of an iPhone :p then again whoever is wanting to buy the Nexus is smart for not wanting an iPhone :p

  • master94

    At&T must be really stupid, they priced the phone higher than everyone else. Tmobile and Sprint have it for much less

  • Alex

    Lil help here… I’m interested in buying the HTC One OFF contract so I can switch carriers if needed. Where’s a good place to buy the HTC One so that it’ll work with both AT&T and T-mobile. Thanks for any help!

  • Uriah Romero

    Well lucky for those who get AT&T! I have to wait a few more weeks before I can get an HTC One, but it’ll be worth it since it comes with a fast processor, UltraPixel camera and a 1080p display. Considering how long it takes to get to work at DISH sometimes, I like to keep myself busy by watching my live and recorded shows on my phone. I can stream any show from my DVR wherever I go using the DISH Anywhere app and I think it will work well on a full HD display.
