HTC Summer Sale: One M9 25% cheaper, Nexus 9 gets 40% price cut
posted by Victor H. / Jul 28, 2015, 5:45 AM
The HTC One M9 came at a time when HTC needed a hit product, but rather than living up to the high expectations, the One M9 came riddled with products and ended up deepening the disastrous financial situation HTC was in.
First came the reports about overheating of the Snapdragon 810 system chip and then the disappointing camera samples showed that the new, 20-megapixel camera on the One M9 is not up to par with other flagships.
The situation was so dare that HTC chief executive Cher Wang had to apologize to shareholders.
Huge price cuts todayThe HTC One M9, however, still can brag about having one of the nicest designs on an Android handset with its aluminum unibody, and with a lower price tag, your perception of the phone might just change.
Yes, HTC is cutting the price on the One M9 by 25% to a more alluring $468.75. Other devices on sale are the Nexus 9 (down 40% from $399.99 to $239.40), the HTC Re camera (down 50% to $99), and accessories (also down 50%).
The deal will last until 11:59pm PDT tonight, on July 28th.
The one M9 was a product that came riddled with products? So it's like a tech version of a Matryoshka doll? I don't know why it flopped, that's awesome! Smh, just goes to show HTC really doesn't know how to market. I'm buying one ASAP, that's a true exclusive feature!

I've seen the affect throttling has on gaming performance on the M9. it's not good.
