HTC may have just shot itself in the foot. One of the biggest selling points of the company's upcoming One A9 smartphone was its $399 unlocked price, considering all that it offered. But as it turns out, that might be too good to be true. The HTC One A9 will cost $499 after Nov. 6, making it much less of a steal.
During our hands-on, we were impressed by the One A9's promising guts, relatively unobtrusive software (compared to previous versions of its Sense UI) and good looks. And for $399, it's a great value. But after the price bump, HTC's handset will have to contend with other, more capable phones in the same price range, such as the Nexus 6P.
