If you're planning to buy a sub-$200 Android smartphone in the US without signing a contract agreement, you might want to consider looking at a former flagship made by HTC. We're talking about the HTC One (M7), which is currently available at Best Buy for $199.99 off contract. This isn't an unlocked One (M7), but you can choose to get it on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. It seems that only the blue and silver variants of the handset are available for just $199.99.
While it's now almost 2 years old, the HTC One (M7) simply can't be ignored at this price point, as it still offers attractive features, including a 4.7-inch 1080p display, BoomSound speakers, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory. Moreover, the One (M7) should be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop later this month. If you can't wait for the official OTA, an unofficial ROM is already available - Sense 6.0 included.
Certainly, most HTC fans are now waiting for the Hima / One (M9), so they're probably not interested in the One (M7) anymore. Still, if you're among those who think the ex-flagship handset remains a great buy, you can find it at the source link below.
