Deal: the HTC One M9 can be snapped up at a discount

If you're in the market for a new smartphone and don't want to pay the price of some recent industry top-enders, plenty of last year's handsets have steam left in the engine, The HTC 10 is arguably the best handset produced by the Taiwenese firm in a while, and certainly impressed us when we reviewed it a few months back. The preceding HTC One M9 remains a very capable customer, though, and if you don't mind rocking a device that was announced more than 18 months ago, you can save a tidy sum on the former flagship. 

The popular Gunmetal Gray flavor of the device is available new and unlocked on eBay for $359.95, which is a good 40-buck saving on the usual price. By comparison, the same model retails on Amazon for $500. If you can see yourself rocking either the Gold or Silver/Gold configurations, these models can also be had at $359 and $339 respectively. 

~$350 for a well-built handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is certainly not a bad deal, and considerably cheaper than the $600 HTC 10 as it is priced on Amazon. It does come with a 5-inch display, which may suit those with a liking for more compact handsets. If you're a phablet chaser, however, you'll probably want to skip the One M9 altogether. 

Take a look at the device up close in the gallery below and if you do wish to purchase the handset, check the source links below.

Still a sexy looking phone.... Dammit HTC! The build quaility of their phones is on point, specs are ok, QHD would be welcome but 1080P accepted, bigger battery would be nice too, sense is fantastic as well but the pricing is just killing HTC.

SD 810 was a firebreather as well if I remember correctly.

I dunno... The extra $40 could get you a OnePlus 3 or Axon 7 and you'd have a considerably better device.

Even for 250$ still a pass- the display is uber trash
