AT&T plans to give away the new HTC One

htc one 2014 att giveaway all new

At this point, we know almost everything there is to know about HTC’s upcoming flagship handset, the All New HTC One, and it looks great. Unfortunately, given the value of its predecessor, the HTC One, the flagship won’t be a cheap affair, at least for those of us who forgo the two-year contract for an unlocked version. For you, AT&T decided to swoop down and give a few away.

From March 21 through March 25, AT&T will give away “an amazing new HTC device” each day. If you want a shot at getting HTC’s upcoming flagship handset for free, you will have to sign up using your email and name. Unfortunately, only residents of the United States can enter the giveaway, so apologies to our international readers.

HTC is expected to unveil the All New HTC One on March 25, with the handset itself powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The handset is expected to be equipped with a 5-inch 1080p display that no longer has capacitive buttons at the bottom. Rather, HTC will have on-screen buttons on the new Android 4.4 KitKat phone.

The highlight feature of the handset is rumored to be two camera sensors on the back. By using two sensors, the camera will reportedly have better focus, depth of field, and image quality.

HTC will have a livestream of the event, which is currently in countdown mode.

How to pre-order the OnePlus 10T
Holding the OnePlus 10T in front of a green plant.

The OnePlus 10T, OnePlus' performance flagship for 2022, is here. Following weeks of endless leaks and rumors, OnePlus formally announced the phone on August 3. It did so in big fashion, hosting an extravagant launch event in New York City -- OnePlus's first in-person gathering in over two years. The big change this year, of course, is support for AT&T's 5G networks, which has now been turned on. You can't buy your OnePlus 10T directly from AT&T, but if you're looking to put your existing SIM in your new phone, rest assured that it'll work.

But while the OnePlus 10T was unveiled at the start of August, pre-orders didn't open until September 1. So that meant you had to wait. Thankfully, that waiting period is now over. Unfortunately, it does mean the start of a whole new waiting period since the phone won't be finally available until September 29. OnePlus is really making us wait for this phone, so just try not to get impatient.

OnePlus 10T pre-orders go live in the U.S., and with a big 5G fix
Back of the OnePlus 10T.

Hot off the heels of its Asian and European launches, the OnePlus 10T is finally coming to North America, and with one major upgrade: 5G support with AT&T. For the first time on a OnePlus device, the OnePlus 10T will be fully compatible with AT&T 5G and 4G LTE networks, compared to previous handsets that only had LTE support on AT&T.

While the specs of OnePlus devices have always been impressive, especially so with the 10T, their recent reliance on LTE and other slower connections for AT&T customers has made them somewhat difficult to recommend. Now that users are able to make the most of 5G internet speeds, however, the 10T is more enticing than before.

This lesser-known Android phone is everything I wish the OnePlus 10T was
The iQoo 9T Legend showing its rear panel design.

Have you heard of iQoo? I’m going to guess you haven’t, so here’s an introduction. It’s a spin-off brand of Vivo that launched in 2019 and is part of the BBK Electronics empire along with Realme, Oppo, and OnePlus.It’s the connection to OnePlus that’s relevant here, because iQoo’s latest phone, the iQoo 9T, goes head-to-head with the OnePlus 10T in price.

We couldn’t recommend buying the OnePlus 10T, and having now spent some time with the iQoo 9T, it’s even clearer where OnePlus went wrong with it. I'd recommend the iQoo over the OnePlus, but there’s a slight problem with buying one that we will come back to shortly.
