prajwalkumar83, 09 Apr 2013Sony Xperia Z is selling at Rs. 37,900..Additional 5k (about $100) for HTC one isn't worth it.HTC One has better specs and almost 40% faster specs than the Xperia Z. Before start commenting, please study the competition.
I will buy s4 because of super amoled full hd screen. S4 will be a big hit in India.

I could always use a few thousand extra to spend for party, pretty girls and beer, but if i spend 5 thousand less for that one month makes no real difference.

Any news on whether they will do a dual sim version for India? That would sell even better!!
aniket, 09 Apr 2013Dude in USA initial downpayment is small but over 2 years contract ita cost rises upto 1500 $.... moreThats what i said, everything is on credit in USA, thats what they are used to there. Of course we have the same here, but to a lesser extent, its growing fast though, millions already have free iphone/sgs3/Note2 on 2 year contracts.
Lots of americans prefer to pay debt over having cash, they can still buy what they want with creditcards, as long as Bernanke keep the press going and sell the bonds to China.

And fyi, I am one of the least patriotic person you can find on this soil. And I didn't know that you were the voice over here for the rest of the guys and felt humiliated with my comment, sorry, I can't help it.
Set the price at 500 dollars and it will sell like hotcakes and will get HTC back at the map again. Seriously, noboby will buy it for 790 dollars. It's not even the top smartphone right now.
you could get an xbox 720 or ps4 which is confirmed to be 500 dollar and still save money...seriously who buy an expensive phone like that to make phone calls
Agreed that HTC one has the dubious distinction of being priced anywhere near the iPhone. But HTC has a name amongst those whom it targets. That is the upper middle and upper class. For those who wanna be a part of the crowd and get attracted to gimmicks, Samsung does its job well.
Moreover for the low end and mid end smartphones we have micromax and karbonn and other brands which make u think as galaxy owner by the looks of it :P

Don’t embarrass yourself and the r... moreI agree with u that most of the indians cant afford this price tag infact this cell ph costs more than momthly salary of most indians and annual income of bpl people but they are not the target consumer for htc one. Target consumers are those top 5-10% of creamy layer of india and thanks to huge population it makes a lot of them even if htc one is able to woo even 10% of those target consumers thats close to around 8-10 million phones.....
This is the strategy every smartphone manufacturer have in mind when launching phones in india....
