The HTC One A9 was first announced on October 20 last year, arriving as a premium mid-range smartphone.

While it came after the flagship HTC One M9, it wasn’t technically a successor due to its lower price point and more middling spec sheet.

Features include a 5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 2,150mAh battery.

We gave the phone a 6/10 score in our review, praising its rich and colourful screen, the fast fingerprint scanner, and the up-to-date Android OS.

But it’s also worth noting that the One A9 becomes a significantly better steal at this discounted price.

However, remember that if you’re buying phones from third-party sellers, you can’t always guarantee you’ll get the same level of after-sales support that you would from the original manufacturer.
