We first met the HTC One SV (God, I hate smartphone names) back in December. As the moniker kinda suggests, it’s sort of somewhat of an HTC One S/HTC One V hybrid.
EE has made possibly one or two dreams come true – by welcoming the HTC One SV to its not-exactly-burgeoning 4G fold, but it’ll set you back a fair few shillings.
Looking at the EE Shop, the “best value” plan delivers astoundingly little in the way of value.
The HTC One SV is free, with the usual bundle of unlimited minutes and texts (standard on all 4GEE plans), and we’re told to pick a modest 500MB of data (this is on 4G, remember) if we’re looking for value.
That’ll set you back a whopping £36PM on a 24-month plan, which equates to an incredible £864 over the two years.
Alternatively, you can crank the monthly data to 1GB (£41PM = £984), 3GB (£46PM = £1,104), 5GB (£51PM = £1,224) or 8GB (£56PM = £1,344).
Or, if you’re inexplicably desperate for 4G, you could do the sensible thing and pay £29.99/£49.99 (depending on the contract) up front for the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE.
