AT&T HTC First price slashed: get the Facebook phone for a buck
posted by Victor H. / May 08, 2013, 9:30 AM
And now there is one more thing to that - a lucrative price of $0.99. That’s right, you can get the HTC First for only a buck on AT&T if you are willing to sign a two-year contract.
What’s even better is that the off-contract price of the phone has also fallen from the initial $450 to only $350. That puts it in Nexus 4 territory and the two devices are definitely huge rivals, but right now the HTC First offers the novelty and the Facebook experience that the Nexus 4 don’t have.
Which one would you personally pick - the Nexus 4 or the HTC First? If you like the HTC First more you can take a look at its AT&T page below.

Surprisingly, this is not a bad device at all. Facebook skin or not, it has stock android under the hood, LTE,720p,16gb, and a very comfortable 4.3 inch screen size.

Yes, under the skin it's a solid device. But no amount of money is going to wash away the stain of buying The Facebook Phone.

This is a no-brainer. Nexus 4 is a way better device than HTC First.

No surprises here. This just doesn't appeal to the majority of the customers. It is a mid-range phone and the software loses productivity because its social first. It's a problem when it takes longer to access the phone app than accessing facebook. It's good that Facebook Home can be removed to get the stock android experience but the Nexus 4 is much more appealing (except if you consider LTE).

Well i'll be glad to get the HTC First! The specs are good so are the styling..but what's the push factor? Facebook Home. It's crap. HOW TO DISABLIE IT? 1) go to manage apps settings. 2) Disable Facebook Home. (its just a launcher....) 3)You get STOCK AOSP JELLY BEAN! :D
