Vodafone adds HTC One X10 to its contract range
HTC’s latest mid-range, big battery phone hits Vodafone on 17 May.
HTC’s One X10 will launch in Australia on 17 May for either outright purchase or on a contract through Vodafone. Priced at $549 outright, you might expect that Vodafone would offer a low-priced contract for it, and you’d be entirely correct.
While Vodafone hasn’t released the full pricing schedule for the new HTC handset, prices will start with a $40 Vodafone Red plan with a $5 handset repayment fee per month. That gives it an effective on-contract handset price of $120, which is a fairly substantial saving over the outright price, but also strongly suggests that it’ll be free on almost any other plan tier that Vodafone might offer.
So what does $549 buy you? The HTC One X10 is a 5.5-inch Full HD Android 7.0 phone running on the MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 3GB of RAM.
That’s a very mid-range combination, but what HTC is primarily selling the One X10 on is its included battery, which tops the scales at 4000mAh. The one advantage of having a low-power processor is that in combination with that much battery power, keeping the HTC One X10 going all day should be no problem at all.
While there are a number of high-end premium phones that offer a large battery capacity, it's less frequently found in mid-range or budget handsets, with just a few notable exceptions such as the LG X Power.
