Until August 21st, save $100 on the HTC One M9 and $50 on the HTC One A9
It's not HTC's current flagship model, but the manufacturer is offering $100 off of last generation's HTC One M9. The phone is all yours for just $399. We might have to refresh your memory with this model as it really didn't do much to excite smartphone buyers, although it did spawn many spin off models overseas. HTC did rebound strongly with this year's HTC 10 flagship.

About the only positive thing we could say about the HTC One M9, was that it got rid of the parenthesis seen on the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). It also carries a 5-inch Super LCD 3 display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 810 chipset is under the hood with an octa-core 2GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside with 32GB of internal memory (21GB is available to the user). HTC tried to solve its camera issues by putting a 20MP camera on back. In front, it recycled the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that was on the back of the One (M7) and One (M8). A 2840mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed with Sense 7.0 on top.

If you're looking for something a little fresher, the HTC One A9 can be yours for $379, a $50 haircut. This model features a fingerprint scanner, and a better all around 13MP rear camera with OIS and RAW image capture. The front-facing camera is once again the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that was once found on the back of HTC's flagship models.

A 5-inch AMOLED screen has a 1080 x 1920 resolution, and the Snapdragon 617 SoC is powering the phone. The latter contains an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available for those who need additional storage, and a rather light 2150mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 6.0 is pre-installed along with Sense 7.

Cases for both models are 40% off during the sale, which ends at 11:59pm PT on August 21st. The clock is ticking down. If you're interested, click on this link.

One plus 3 is a lot better for the same price.

Don't waste your hard earned money. HTC 10 is the only HTC phone worth buying currently.

I've seen One M9's on eBay in almost perfect condition for around 200, so don't waste your money.

That might be so, but for $699, they can keep their entire inventory. Overpriced devices, in the same space with low price devices. Take a guess who's going to win, especially as economies continue to struggle.
