With the dust from MWC 2015 well and truly settled, it's now time to start considering unfolding those banknotes to slap down on the show's best devices. HTC's One M9 is one such option for those on the hunt for a new top-of-the-line smartphone: an evolutionary step on from last year's M8, it ditches the UltraPixel camera from its rear in favour of a more traditional 20MP snapper, with a new build of HTC Sense focusing on location-based suggestions and personalisation.
The HTC One M9 was released on 31st March, and was made available in the shops the same day. But which shops should you be heading to, be they brick and mortar, or online? We've pulled together some of the best deals for the smartphone so far, and will be updating this page as other deals are announced. If you're hunting the best HTC One M9 deals, you should be able to find one to your liking here.
Want the phone direct from the hands of HTC CEO Peter Chou himself? Well, that's probably impossible, unless he's found himself in a team-building exercise in their product shipping department. Still, if you're looking for the HTC One M9 direct from the source, then HTC has it in the Gunmetal Grey and Gold on Silver shades for £579.99 each. It's available right now
EE is selling the HTC One M9 in its Gunmetal Grey, Gold on Gold and Gold on Silver styles. EE's recommended deal is as follows: for a steep £43.49 per month (with a £49.99 upfront cost), you get the phone with 2GB of 4G data, 1,000 minutes and unlimited texts. That locks you in for two years. At the cheaper end of the spectrum, a £99.99 upfront cost paired with a £36.99 monthly cost bags you 500MB 4G data, 500 minutes, and unlimited texts. Check out all its deals here.
Vodafone's HTC One M9 deal is a little less expensive. Available in Silver on Gold or Gunmetal Grey shades, it's most balanced deal sees the phone sell for £19 on a £39 per month, two-year contract. That gets you 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of 4G data. Its most lavish deal sees the phone free on a £59 per month, two-year deal, giving you unlimited minutes, texts and 20GB of 4G data, as well as two years free access to either Now TV, Spotify or Sky Sports mobile TV. There are plenty of plans to choose from though, so have a browse to see what fits your needs.
Pulling in deals from a range of network providers, the best Carphone Warehouse deal on the M9 seems to be this one from EE: a £99 upfront cost with a £38.49 per month, two-year contract gets you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of 4G data. And, to sweeten the deal, you get one of the new Dot View cases thrown in too.
