Two-year contract sees HTC phone under $100
The HTC One X is now available for $80 on Amazon. Customers signing up for a new or renewed two-year contract can get the HTC smartphone for that price, though AT&T requires a data plan in addition to the monthly voice plan cost. That brings the total monthly commitment for the One X to at least $80.
AT&T had been previously rumored to be considering a price drop for the One X, but Amazon's discount brings the cost of the phone below even AT&T's price cut. Electronista took a look at the One X in our in-depth review in April. We the device to be a solid entry into the smartphone market, with a good balance between Google's stock Android experience and HTC's own Sense UI 4.0. The build quality is largely solid, and the back camera is very fast, as are most of the phone's functions.
The One X has, though, come under some scrutiny due to production issues that led to poor Wi-Fi connectivity and quick-draining batteries. HTC acknowledged those issues and has apparently retooled its production process to eliminate the problems.
