Best HTC One X Deal


Thought i'd post this for anyone who wants a cheap HTC one X. This can also work out as a good cheap sim only deal (around £6.20pm for the One Plan)

I would get it myself buti have about 3 personal/work lines already and none of them are due and upgrade atm. Plus i'm getting one from work.

Is anyone else getting a One X? Whats the deal you're going for and which colour have you gone for? This is the first phone that looks good to me in white!

Thanks for the heads up, I shall definitely keep an eye out for them (no doubt I'll be informed via HUKD anyway :p).

£718 over the two years, it's a great deal if you want the 24 month contract which comes with the phone. Personally I'm looking for a PAYG/SIM Free/contract which totals less than the SIM free (or PAYG) price.

Thats going to be hard to find, especially for a new phone. Best thing i can think of is either buying it sim free and using GiffGaff/another cheap PAYG option/sim only. Or picking it up on a 12 month contract which Vodafone only do. (and it's expensive.

I already have a SIMO contract with 11 months left on it, so I don't fancy buying out of that (it'd be a total waste of money). The cheapest I've seen the One X is £450 with £8 Quidco making it £442 from Three on PAYG.

I usually buy my phones SIM Free/PAYG anyway. If I did get a "cheaper than full price" contract it's have to be 12 months as I only keep my phones a year and I don't want to be paying off a phone a year after I've sold the thing.

Aha, makes sense to just buy it outright then. Three will probably be the cheapest for now.

Yeah, I think I'm going to give it a few weeks to see how the prices settle, then if I still want a One X I'll go and find the cheapest one. I was lucky last year, I got my S2 the week it came out from O2 for £399.99. Quite a bargain when you consider it's not going for much less than that now, a year later.

Check out the easter weekend deals o2 do. The One X might be in it.

Last year i got the HTC Desire S on a 24 month contract @ £10.50pm (no upfront cost- down from £199) (£252) - £60 TCB = £192 for 50 minutes/250 texts + Free HTC Desire S.

I ended up selling the Desire S a few weeks later because i got a free Sensation from work. Sold it for £305 on ebay making a healthy profit of £113. o2 easter deals have always been shockingly awesome (considering how expensive they are) So if the One X is in it i can guarantee it'll be good.

who the hell clicked useful answer...

AhmadCentral  Apr. 4, 2012 at 21:53


It was an accident, i blindly clicked and it made it the useful answer. If its any consolation i did spend about 10 minutes trying to work out how i could undo it...

Treab  Apr. 4, 2012 at 22:18

You disappoint me sir ;)

AhmadCentral  Apr. 5, 2012 at 10:48

I sincerely apologise ;)

BTW Matt- I had a look at the o2 site. http://shop.o2.co.uk/mobile_phone/pay_monthly/init/HTC/One_X

Click on the low data tariffs at the top (100mb) and you'll see a plan that is 13.50pm with 50 mins/250 texts/100mb + £179. If o2 do what they did last year then they might drop the upfront cost to zero. Either on this phone or another similar one. Even now though, it only works out at £10.50 (removed data price) x 24= £252 + £179= £431. (-£50.50 TCB = £380.50)

Btw Matt, if you hang outside of an o2 shop and make friends with the staff :P , or already know someone from o2. They get 30% off and can give that discount to a few friends. So technically you could apply the discount after and save 30% off £10.50pm (£7.35pm)Or go for the £15.50 18 month one (takes it down to £10.85 with 30% discount.
