HTC One down to £36 on an 18-month contract

Dialaphone, the sister company to Phones4U, is selling the HTC One, the new flagship smartphone for the Taiwanese company for as little as £36 per month, a price that doesn’t include any upfront fee. The total cost of ownership of the handset stands at £648, which is around £150 more than the handset SIM Free.

The offer includes a free urBeats by Dre Headphones and a Flipcase while the plan itself is available on Orange Panther and includes 1GB of data, a free Orange Swapable, unlimited text messages plus 600 minutes per month. The phone was unveiled in February and you can check out our hands-on the HTC One here.

The smartphone reminds us of the HTC Legend as it is build out of a single block of aluminium. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, one which is clocked at 1.7GHz, which should make it faster than the Sony Xperia Z, which uses the same system-on-chip.

Amongst its main features are 2GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage backed by a cloud-based service, a 4.7in 1,920 x 1,080 pixel display, NFC and a 4.1-megapixel camera (where the pixels are actually way bigger than your average camera and therefore capture more light, producing better pictures).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
