I'm still sane to pay off that amount for a phone!

That's always the case when a new highly anticipated product is delayed. Businessmen will take advantage on those who cannot wait or want to be the first.

What's up with all that Xperia Z talk? Too many insecure fanboys? Both are good phones in their own right, get over it.

BYE BYE HTC, you did not make enough profit last year and now at this Price, you may sell only on contract and most of your profits will be taken by the career. there is a reason for plastic phones so stick with it. it is cheaper and you can sell at reasonable price

you guys do know that amazon is just a portal to sell stuff from other companies/people, right.? So its not HTC pricing the phone at $800+, its other companies/ppl. Sort of like ebay, without the bidding. so if lets say i see an iphone on ebay at $1500.00, its not that apple is selling it at that price, its who ever its selling it.

Sad to see the way HTC is turning out these days.
Flagship phone with considerable compromises as opposed to competitors, backed up only by badly managed product releases and at terrible price point. What are you even thinking? You are only pushing ur customers away.
Rip HTC, the pricing is definitely the last nail in the coffin

Now SGS4, that's another story. It's better at literally everything and it's not going to be more expensive than the One, probably.
