That is an excellent price point. $199 off contract I can see this phone being quite popular.

Not a bad deal, but I still think the Moto G beats this. It would definitely be a day 1 buy if it had a 720p resolution.

Agreed, although I like the design of this one better. It looks nice and crisp, in kind of an iPhone 5C sort of way.

Yeah, that's what I thought of too when I saw the colors. It does look nice though. I know I sounds spoiled but I won't purchase any phone (regardless of price) with less than a 720p resolution.

I have a feeling that if this was $100 of contract with a decent pair of earbuds, that you just might make an exception...;-)

HTC just doesn't get it sometimes. If they wanna beat the Moto G they gotta at least edge it out in specs if only slightly. Boomsound isn't enough.

I think this is competitive with the Moto G considering that the Moto G LTE is $220 for the same storage. The only thing that this device lacks in is resolution for screen but you do get a (hopefully) better camera. It is still probably worth paying more for the Moto G if only because if the screen and faster updates though. But this isn't a bad deal at all either.

You are also getting sense 6, which in my opinion beats stock android, at least until L comes out.

Dude, Boom sound is defeinitely enough. We're talking about the average consumer here that just want a cheap affordable phone.

They only care about how a phone looks and what they can see on the outside. Believe it or not, they don't have a clue what a CPU or GPU is like we do. They're going to see a nice screen with L and R speakers. They don't have a clue what PPI is. These are economically challenged communities that usually aren't educated in tech talk.

This is where HTC made a mistake, they dropped entry level phones, but most of their revenue was coming from entry level phones.

I agree with the pricing but I just wish manufacturers would upgrade onboard memory across the board for smartphones. Even with an SD card 8GB for pics & music the phone will fill up pretty quick. 16 GB should be the new entry-level standard.

Me 250 pics after 1 month of use M8 and 50 songs, still dont need SD i have 6 gb free and i must delete old pictures i have it on dropbox,, its enough 16gb for me

Well if my s4 craps out or gets lost/stolen this will be my replacement phone. Glad to see gophone get some nicer devices for $200 or less. I once had to use a zte avail as a temp. Ended up using it for four months. Ugh. But it was cheap and it worked.

The Moto G 4G LTE finally gas some real competition.

Please bring this to T-Mobile I would love to have this as a back up or even as a daily driver.
