Vodafone have launched deals for both the HTC One X and HTC One S, two of the latest devices to arrive on UK shores from the Taiwanese manufacturer. For a limited time both devices will be available as free handsets on cheaper tariffs than previously.
HTC One X
HTC’s Tegra 3-running flagship device, the HTC One X, wowed us with its superb 8-megapixel camera, its gorgeous 4.7-inch display and of course the fast quad-core processor lurking within. Previously the One X on Vodafone was only available as a free handset on a £41 a month, two year contract, which offered up 900 minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB of data and 2GB of BT Openzone internet access.
The new offer drops the free handset option down to a £36 a month tariff with the available texts and data remaining unchanged and call time dropping to 600 minutes.
HTC One S
The smaller brother to the new flagship, the HTC One S is not really a lesser device in the typical sense. The screen is smaller (4.3-inches) lower resolution (qHD 960×540) and the term ‘quad-core’ doesn’t appear on its spec sheet, the dual-core Snapdragon S4 inside offers impressive performance. Not worlds away from that of the Tegra 3 with regards to everyday use, but powerful enough for most tasks.
Its slim metal body houses a battery which shows impressive stamina, especially for such a feature-rich device and the camera shares a lot of the benefits as demonstrated by the One X.
As with the One X, Vodafone have dropped the entry tariff at which the handset is available for free. Previously a £36 a month, two year contract provided you with not only a free HTC One S, but 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data (plus the aforementioned 2GB of BT Openzone Wi-Fi access seen on the One X tariffs). The lower entry price, £31 a month tariff has the same BT Openzone benefits, but lowers the available minutes and data to half (down to 300 minutes and 500MB of data), whilst still offering up a free One S.
The deal itself only lasts until May 13th with the HTC One X available in both black and white and the One S available in black or grey. If you’ve read our reviews, you know how much we liked both devices based on their merits and as such, we can’t deny this offer is worth a look.
