UK retailers slash HTC EVO 3D prices

When we reviewed the GSM version of HTC's EVO 3D back in August, our main complaint was the exorbitant price of the phone. On-contract deals were nowhere to be found, and at the time of review SIM-free prices came in at over £500 (~$830), considerably more than the similarly-specced HTC Sensation.

Now, at least two British retailers have decided to significantly cut their asking prices for the device -- Expansys is currently selling the EVO for £284.99 with free shipping, while ASDA Direct has it for £249.99. These prices make the EVO 3D notably cheaper than the Sensation, which currently sells for around £350 SIM-free. The more expensive device also lacks the EVO's 3D display, and packs a smaller amount of RAM (768MB vs. 1GB).

So if you're in the market for a high-end HTC phone, an EVO 3D for around £250 represents great value -- five months ago this thing was selling for double that amount.

  • HOLY SH*T that's cheap!
  • Its processor is outdated by now therefore I'd rather wait for the galaxy s3
  • I wouldn't say its outdated and should be dismissed completely. Is there better now or will there be better on the horizon? Yes, but its a very capable processor. Hell its the same one in the rezound :/.
  • Phones are like PC now. I wouldn't say its outdated the software still hasn't even cought up to the duel core phones now comes quad core.So tried of this at least Max out what's already out. Look at the Xbox the first cod looked great was like wow cool graphics but now mw3 just smokes it in every way I just wish the same would happen on phones Max out what we already have push the gpus and cpus more
  • Did a quick calculation.
    £250 = $393.99 (Canadian Dollars) Rogers website is offering it for $549.99 off contract. (again Canadian Dollars)
    Unless of course you lock into a 3 year contract, then it's only a penny! Even a 2 year contract they still want $449. Me thinks if you want this phone, you could probably buy it overseas, get it shipped, and STILL save money!
