Deal: Unlocked HTC One (M8) From eBay for $649 ($50 Off)

htc one m8 deal

Ever since HTC raised the price on the unlocked model of their 2014 flagship One (M8), we have been on the hunt for a deal that would drop it below its steep $699 asking price. That deal has come today, through an eBay daily deal.

For $649, you can pick up a brand new unlocked HTC One (M8) that should work on AT&T LTE just fine, but may not see the best connectivity at all times on T-Mobile. That’s not the steepest discount around, especially when you consider the full retail on Verizon’s model is only $599, but it’s the best price around.

Here are the bands that the unlocked One (M8) supports:

  • LTE Quad Band (Bands 17/4/2/5); LTE MIMO
  • GSM/EDGE: Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 Hz), Class 12
  • UMTS: Tri-band (UMTS 850/1900/2100MHz), HSPA+Category 14xx (HSDPA 21Mbps/ EDCH 5.7 Mbps)

Be sure to read our HTC One (M8) review if you have any questions or concerns about the device.

    My wife’s AT&T HTC One m8 just got an update. My unlocked edition got one a week or so ago.

    With the nexus 5, moto X and OnePlus, anyone paying that much for a phone is an idiot.

  • Kane Desousa

    The unlocked and AT&T version are expensive because bands. And also the Verizon one comes to 650 after tax so the same price.

  • ToddAwesome

    I understand that a top tier phone will run $650 full retail, but come on people, really?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    To be honest. With the 16GB S5 going for around 650 too, this isn’t bad for double the storage. Though when verizon undercuts the price, it all of a sudden seems overpriced

  • htowngtr

    Meh… With LG G3 coming and One+1 in a few months, I don’t see allure of $650 phone like that one.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      OnePlus is one thing (providing they figure out how to release a phone)…. Though the G3 wouldn’t be priced any different than this.

      • htowngtr

        So… A phone with a much nicer design and guts is the same price as this one? Yea…

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          I’m not complaining. I’m just comparing the cheaper phones to the more expensive ones. Though with your argument wouldn’t the OnePlus be the best option for you? Similiar specs at half the price?

    • Maxim∑

      One+1 the flagship killer that might be released by 2020. The M8 is a great device and most people interested with LG are perfectly happy with the G2

      • htowngtr

        Conversely the M8 is not a step-up from my M7 either.

      • EdubE24

        I’m happy with all my phones for the first week. Doesn’t stop me from getting another one!!

        • JoshGroff

          Same here usually, but I’m still rocking my Moto X. Waiting to see what the next nexus, X+, or Note 4 have to offer. Hopefully the ROM scene will keep me occupied until then.

          • EdubE24

            That’s months away, my addiction sadly doesn’t give me that much time!

  • ddevito

    That’s not a deal.

    -Sent from my $350 Moto X

    • T4rd

      $350 for a Moto X isn’t a deal either. I got a new 32GB Moto X for my mom for $260 on Swappa. =p

      • JoshGroff

        That beats my Cyber Monday Moto X 16GB. :/

    • Maxim∑

      Huge difference between the X and M8. Not really comparable

      • ToddAwesome

        $300 difference? You’re outta your mind.

      • htowngtr

        At $350 cost, yes it is. Moto X is a great phone for the cost. Someday people will realize $650 for a new, unlocked phone is lunacy.

        • ToddAwesome

          ^THIS

        • Maxim∑

          I would expect the 650$ phone to last longer than the X. Moto has done a great job optimizing it but at some point the hardware will be a bottleneck

          • ToddAwesome

            Even if that were the case, it hardly justifies paying $650 for a phone that may provide a better experience in months 18+ of life. If you can afford it though, knock yourself out.

          • htowngtr

            Not really when you consider huge cost difference. The Moto X with 4.4.2 is fabulous and the size is under-appreciated. The M8 is freaking enormous and the camera and blinkfeed don’t make me want it at all. If Moto actually learned anything from Apple it would be how to optimize the OS to the hardware and not just throw more resources at it like many other modern phones.

          • ddevito

            In a word….no. The X will easily go another 2 years, the mobile platform’s hardware is way far advanced for software right now, it will take software 2+ years to catch up.
