HTC 10 price slashed by $100 until the end of the month, $100 bonus in free accessories included
HTC has just announced that its flagship smartphone, the HTC 10, will be priced at a $100 discount until the end of the month in the US.

Starting today and through the end of July, US customers can purchase the HTC 10 at a price of $599. That's a $100 discount compared to the usual price of the unlocked HTC 10, which regularly retails at $699.

On top of this $100 discount on the HTC 10, the manufacturer is also offering HTC 10 buyers another $100 in credit that can be used to purchase accessories from the company's official US web store. Note that you don't need to purchase the HTC 10 from the manufacturer itself to get the $100 in credit towards accessory purchases; just provide a proof of purchase and the company will give you $100 in credit to spend on accessories. Note that the $100 can be used to purchase accessories for any HTC device, but the HTC Vive VR headset and related accessories are not part of the promotion.

This discounted HTC 10 price if good for GSM unlocked units (which will work with carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T), Verizon, and Sprint units. The phones are available in both grey and silver and come with one-year of free Uh-oh protection.

In the past few years, HTC has been squashed out of the entry-level and mid-range segments of the smartphone market. As such, HTC is now highly dependent on its flagship smartphone series to turn a profit. Unfortunately for the iconic smartphone maker, however, early signs show that the HTC 10 is not the commercial success that HTC needed it to be, and this despite the phone having received largely positive reviews in the tech media. 


The fact that the HTC 10 gets a $100 price cut so early since its launch could indicate that the flagship isn't selling very well. On the other hand, many customers might be tempted to check out the HTC 10 at this discounted price, especially given that the relatively high price of the phone was its only major downside.

What do you guys think? Is the HTC 10 worth $599 with a $100 bonus in free accessories?

This is an early indication that Sales of the device are not doing too well. It is sad as I wanted HtC to succeed but it is a little to late now due to what I see as the stubbornness of it late chief engineer, Peter Cho, who refuse to admit that a better camera was needed on the M8 model ( instead of rehashing the same 4mp camera). Designed wise the M8 was such a great device in my eyes. However, the camera was the sore point for me. The M9 also a well design device was but also lacking on the camera front in terms of quality ( yes higher mp count but less then stellar optics and software processing along with the SD810 which, With QC, really screwed over HtC), Then the A9 which seem to lack the HtC design language, Mean while LG, Motorola, Xaimo, Oppo, One + and of Course Samsung where just getting better and better design wise and software wise. It reached the point that it was too late and the market had shifted and settled on two main players- Samsung and Apple. Just like there were millions of car companies during the auto boom years it eventually settled to the big three ( Ford, GM and Chrysler ) so too the smart phone market has settle to the big two( Samsung and Apple). Sad but the truth it is to late for HtC.

Could the lack of sales have anything to do with the fact that normal consumers probably don't even know the HTC 10 exists? I've only seen one (1) on display at any store. Ever. And it was the city's big VZW store. None of the authorized retailers had them out. Zero out of the four T-Mobile stores I went into had any display. Nor did Best Buy. Even when looking to purchase on the official T-Mobile website, the HTC 10 is buried incredibly deep. Literally just went and counted. It's the 19th phone listed for sale. Below the Galaxy S6's and even the LG K10 and K7. Hell, it's even below the old iPhone 6 models. Why has such a highly regarded phone been pushed under the rug? What's the deal?

Too little too late. This offer should have been put in place when it launched. HTC needs a yearly upgrade program. I would consider another HTC phone if they offered a yearly upgrade program like iPhone .

I'm pissed that AT&T didn't add it to there collection to get. Dumb move on their part. Sometimes, people can't or won't fork over 600 bills, if they can get from there carrier. I'm a huge HTC fan, had them all. But the price is steep.
