For $199 you can purchase a Nexus 5x as long as you sign up to Google Fi's network. There is no contract, you can leave whenever you want and use the phone wherever you want.
I like the HTC A9. But even at $399 it just seems impossible for it to compete against something the caliber of a Nexus 5x. Particularly when that phone can be had for 1/2 the cost.
Qxdir, 08 Mar 2016This is worth 250Actually in Belgium you can find it for 400 Euro and there is a 150 Euro cash-back from HTC so final price 250 Euro. I am still not buying - huge bezels, terrible cpu, small no-removable battery, no 4k video, no USB type C, base model with only 2GB RAM and only 16GB memory, etc. Not worth it.
They needed to figure out their pricing form the get go. If they keep doing these price cuts, people will always wait for any of their products to get price cuts. Not a good precedent.
In Europe it cost ~450,so I would say this deal is a bargain.
And for those who look only the spec sheet,I would say "keep yours no-name phones,ans STFU"
TandA81, 08 Mar 2016Still not worth it. Drop another $100 You are right, but I say at $250, a good possibility
Zero, 08 Mar 2016This device was not worth 499 to begin with. mehYou don't have to buy it 😂
I have this device and got it at $400. It's a little pricey but this is a premium feeling device in my opinion and worth it for me because I got a year of "uh oh" protection included. A really fair price for the general public would be about $350. $400 is still an OK deal however, I do really enjoy this device for not being a flagship.
