HTC One Deal: £26 a month plus £30 upfront

USwitch is offering the HTC One smarphone, in partnership with AffordableMobiles, on T-Mobile for a mere £26 per month with an upfront fee of £30.

That’s a total cost of ownership of £654 or an effective monthly cost of just over £27 which is not a lot for a flagship product. The deal includes 500 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data (but without tethering though).

The handset on offer, the HTC One, has been released earlier this year and comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC clocked at 1.7GHz. Its chassis is made of aluminium (with a zero gap construction) and has 2GB of RAM plus 32GB onboard storage.

Its 4.7in Super LCD 3 screen can display up to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and other notable features include a 4.1-megapixel camera (which are much larger than the competition and can therefore capture more light), a number of HTC-only features (like HTC Zoe, BlinkFeed, BoomSound), Beats Audio technology with two front facing speakers with built-in amplifiers and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense UI.
