Deal: HTC One smartphone from as little as £21.21 per month

You can get the HTC One smartphone from E2Save, a Carphone Warehouse subsidiary, from as little as £21.21 per month on a two-year contract; that's a total cost of ownership of £509.

That's around £25 more than the cost of getting the SIM free version of the device. In other words, you're paying the equivalent of around £1 for the cost of the SIM only.

The deal comes with two strings though. Firstly, the initial cost of the device is £245 with a £11 monthly fee. Then there's the fact that the plan itself is pretty useless except for heavy text users as it comes with unlimited texts, 50 minutes and 100MB data.

The HTC One was unveiled earlier this year and is almost universally recognized as being a better phone, design wise compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4, which remains its biggest rival. Other competing handsets include the Sony Xperia Z and the Apple iPhone 5.

Like the main top-of-the-range smartphone on the market, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon, in this case a model 600 model clocked at 1.7GHz. Check out our review of the HTC One here.
