HTC just isn't the heavy hitter in the mobile space that it used to be. Despite once making some of the best Android phones around, the company hasn't made much noise in recent years. However, its existing lineup is still worth looking into, especially now that many of its phones are available at a fraction of their original prices. Here are the best HTC phones you can grab right now.

Phones that hold up surprisingly well

HTC may not be the mobile giant it used to be, but that doesn't mean its phones aren't still good for die-hard fans and casual users alike. The U20 is the closest thing we've seen to a flagship in years, packing 5G support, relatively powerful specs, and a huge 5000mAh battery.

The U12+ was a decidedly more high-end option when it was released in 2018, though, and despite a somewhat rough launch with problematic buttons, it's still a capable phone — just be warned, the U12+ was never updated beyond Android 9 Pie.

If you're simply looking for the cheapest phone you can get, though, the Desire 20 Pro is a surprisingly good phone that's running newer Android 10 software at the expense of less powerful specs — though the newly announced Desire 21 Pro 5G is right around the corner, and could breathe some fresh life into HTC's lineup.
