Looking to get your hands on HTC's new super-sized One? Then Wirefly is happy to offer it at a discount, at least if your preferred carrier is Sprint. Right now the service and hardware reseller is selling the HTC One Max for $129.99 for new Sprint customers and $199.99 for returning customers who re-sign their contract. Not bad for a brand-new flagship.


Technically new customers are getting a $120 discount off of the $250 retail contract price, but Sprint offers a $100 discount for porting your number from another service, so the effective price change is twenty bucks. Returning Sprint customers get a higher price but a bigger effective discount. I wouldn't try to buy the phone from Wirefly unsubsidized - they've currently got it marked at a ridiculous $1200 off-contract price (maybe they've been taking lessons from Best Buy). Sprint sells the phone unsubsidized for a less insane price of $600.

The One Max is, more or less, an HTC One that's been spread out with a rolling pin. It gets a bigger 5.9-inch display and a fingerprint scanner 'round the back, plus a larger battery and an SD card slot. If Samsung's Notes and Megas leave you cold and you prefer a little metal in your gigantic phone design, the One is for you. If you want the latest and greatest camera tech and a stylus, you should probably look elsewhere.
