HTC One X from £14 per month? Incredible but true

Over the weekend, O2 has sold the HTC One X smartphone, the predecessor to the HTC One for as little as £14 per month on a two year contract. That’s a total cost of ownership of £336 which is only a tad more than the cost of the phone SIM Free. Note that O2 unlocks contract phones for free.

O2 mentioned the deal as being a clearance and given that the phone is now out of stock, it is unlikely that it will ever be available at the price again.

As for the tariff, it included 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB data allowance. In all fairness, it is highly likely that you’d buy that phone on this contract and swap the SIM outright.

The HTC One X was unveiled nearly one year ago and was the first of the first generation quad-core to reach our market. It comes with an Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 4.7in 1,280 x 720 pixels display, two years’ worth of cloud storage (25GB on Dropbox), an 8-megapixel camera with HTC ImageSense plus Beats Audio technology and a talk time of up to 505 minutes.
