HTC One now sold unlocked in the US

HTC One now sold unlocked in the US
The HTC One is now available unlocked and off-contract on the company’s U.S. website and it would cost you $575 to get the 32GB HTC One with no carrier ties and $650 for the 64GB model.

Getting a phone unlocked and off carrier means you don’t have to sign any type of contract and use the device on any GSM carrier like AT&T and T-Mobile in the States, and also internationally. Let’s make it clear that this is not the developer’s edition with unlocked bootloader we saw go on sale earlier.

Purchasing through HTC’s online storefront you get the usual 1 year limited warranty, and also shipping happens quickly, within 24 hours. You also save on taxes (except for those in California and Texas). Hit the source link below to check out the details of HTC’s online offer.

People on Verizon should welcome this news with open arms and a smile on their faces.

@ FlushGordon you are so wrong man... the ultrapixel has really good quality camera lens. None of the phone out there can provide wide angle shots like my new One. I don't need to say much. But you can hate it as much as you like. Until you actually seen the phone and held it on your hand. You will just be amazed how nice this phone is.

I am in Africa and i am getting the unlocked version from America next week, i am using the One X but one thing i want to ask is that is the HTC One's camera better than the 8MP of the One X? if yes then i am cool with the 4 UtraPixel.

Some say picture quality is so so in good light condition. I would say its about on par to a bit worse comparing to One X. Just don't expect a major difference, but overall it is still a solid camera for a cell phone

don't forget that most of the tests were made with phone without the software update

Video is great with amazing sound recording. Still shots are on par with others in good lighting conditions but in low light it beats the competition hands down.

If you don't do much editing to your photos, then yes, very much so, especially in low light. Go look at some camera samples from it, just make sure they were made after the update which greatly improved quality.

I am curious how this phone is different from buying a One from AT&T at full fare (no contract) and asking for the unlock codes at the time of purchase?

You don't get no ugly at&t brandings plus bloatware... lastly you will escape taxes if you don't leave in texas and california..

That's less than buying off contract from the carriers, plus you get no branding, no bloat, and an unlocked SIM.

you kind of get that with sprint with the lack of carrier branding and unlocked SIM, just the bloatware. still not sure if the LTE work internationally though

If I was to get this phone.. it'd be the 64GB unlocked. Dev edition!

This is a great deal. I may have to reconsider my Galaxy s 4 purchase, get this and get the note 3 later.
