HTC One Mini Hits AT&T on August 23, Only $100 on Contract

AT&T announced this morning that it will carry the One Mini from HTC. Starting on August 23, the device goes on sale for just $100 with a new two year agreement. The device features a 4.3″ 720p display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, that lovely 4MP UltraPixel camera and all of the proprietary HTC software that we enjoy

It won’t be the fastest phone on the market, but is definitely a well-sized machine priced to compete.

Have you been waiting for the Mini?

    Personally while I think the HTC One is better than the S4 or Droid Ultra I do prefer the Droid Mini over the One Mini.

    • aQuickBit

      because of NFC and wireless charging?

      • Asmodai

        That and a better SoC, larger battery, double the RAM, better cameras, I don’t even think the One Mini has ac support for wifi and the Droid Mini does. The Droid Mini is just a better all around phone if you don’t mind the cosmetics (which I personally don’t mind but many seem to)

    A little off subject but if the Moto X was priced at this price point it would have much better feedback.

    • Cory Pitkavish

      agreed. id pay 100 for a regular model and maybe 200 for a customized model

      • hkklife

        No, not off the subject at all. If HTC’s having this much trouble with properly priced models, just imagine how much the X is going to stink up the market. $100 on contract, $200 customized on all carriers, and $450-$500 full retail would have made the X a MUCH more compelling value proposition.

          I would probably buy the phone if it was 400-450$ off contract.
          And yeah the 100$ for regular model is smart. Mass produce black and white in China for in-store models. 200$ customizable phone assembled in US on all major carriers and Moto’s got a decent selling phone. 200$ is ridiculous especially when on 3 of the carriers it’s only black or white.

        hey,
        please tell me in detail that what’s inside that agreement.?

      Maybe from tech nerds. If you’re comparing phones in a similar price range, then understandably, the tech short iPhone 5 will come into play, and it commands a price premium over even the highest spec’d Android phones.

      You have to understand business to understand why Motorola priced it high. They’re targeting high-end phones, not with specs, but with something (hopefully) more useful to the masses (not necessarily you). If Motorola priced it too low, then a lot of people will think it’s a budget phone that doesn’t have the features of high-end phones. Most people rarely look at tech specs. They go by price (not the same price as the iPhone, it’s probably not as “good” kind of thinking), then maybe look at and play with the phone in person (some don’t even do that – iPhone users in particular).

      Even if the iPhone 5S has improved specs that are less than current Android phones, it’ll still command the same price as the current iPhone 5, right? Why?

      Just like a BMW commands a higher price over a Chevy, for basically the same thing. You can get a more powerful car with roughly the same features under the Chevy brand for less money than you can under the BMW brand. They’re not exactly the same, though, are they?

      It’s all perception!

    this price point should be able to push the phone…. i hope

    • Cory Pitkavish

      i really want htc to do well. competition causes great things

  • Robert Macri

    1GB won’t get it done…

    • Jeff Cromwell

      It’s a mid-range device. And having used the device, I can say that the 1GB of RAM is plenty for Sense 5 and to handle typical day-to-day functions. Have to remember that people like you and I are not the average consumer. This phone offers quite a lot for the $100 price point.

    Exclusives… I have an idea why not buy an international version of any flagship phone put it on a T-mobile SIM card or any other cheap prepaid SIM card(with the smallest data limit if you want) and buy a Verizon LTE Hotspot if you want more coverage…

  • Jordan Webb

    I really hate it when they skimp on RAM. 1GB is going to be absolutely painful in 2 years for these folks.

    • Tyler Durden

      It’s alittle painful now.
