They both come in a variety of colours; Black Sapphire, White Pearl and Gold Platinum and all are encased in full metal and Gorilla glass. Both come with a stunning 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED screen and ‘real’ RGB colour, though of course the edge has *the edge* slightly here having the gorgeous curved edges to boot. The phones look and indeed are premium.
HTC fans, rejoice! The HTC One M9 is here and available to buy today on Three. The M9 offers some nice brand-spanking-new features including Sense 7, which recognises where you are and displays the apps you use most in that location – no more Candy Crush at work!
With its 5” Full HD screen and two front-facing speakers, now with Dolby Audio surround sound, your phone has never looked or sounded so good. An impressive 20MP back camera means you’ll be capturing #holidayspam that will have your friends drooling with envy. Selfies more your thing? The M9 has you covered with its 4 UltraPixel selfie camera at the front.
Cast your minds back to the hazy, sunshine filled days of summer 2014 and you might remember that we launched an exciting new app called Three inTouch.
inTouch is a nifty little app that allows you to make calls and texts over Wifi. Perfect if you’re on the underground, or, in a nightclub, or, well, anywhere there is Wifi but no network connection. Pretty handy huh?
Three inTouch has been hugely popular since it was launched, we even released a new version last month which ironed out some of the little glitches you guys had told us about, like:
1. You’ll no longer have to turn off Wi-Fi to activate inTouch on Android
2. If you downloaded the app to your “Rooted Device” you’ll find that it now works*
3. You can now select not to receive SMS’s into the Three inTouch inbox and you’ll be able to get them sent directly in to your normal inbox when you’re in 3G or 4G coverage.
Today, however, we’re really excited to announce that Three inTouch has now been downloaded and activated by a WHOPPING 1 million customers! This is quite an achievement and naturally we’ve popped a few bottles of champagne at Three Towers today to celebrate. We’re even beating Spotify and Twitter in the app store charts!
Anyone following our Social Media over the last few days will know that we’ve been over in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2015. We’ve seen lots of exciting new phones and gadgets and heard from some amazing speakers.
But the highlight for us has to be that we’re now able to announce an exclusive network tariff partnership with Honor for their latest flagship phone; the Honor 6+. The 6+ is the first Honor device that we’ll range and we couldn’t be more excited. You guys will be able to buy one on a variety of contracts for the first time in the UK.
The Christmas lights are still up (just!) and the turkey leftovers are still going strong. There’s a limp, slightly brown looking Christmas tree clinging on for dear life in the corner. But we all know what’s coming and we have to face up to it. Christmas is over. No more lovely food, no more tinsel everywhere you turn, nothing to brighten up those grim January days except the nagging feeling that you should probably be in the gym.
It’s going to be ok though. Now’s the time people are starting to think about escaping the doom and gloom. Thoughts turn to sunnier, warmer climes and we begin to book our summer holidays – hoorah.
We think we might have made those summer holidays that little bit sweeter this year too…. We’re really excited to be able to announce that as of April 2015 you’ll all be able to use your phones (and tablets!) at no extra cost in both…. Drum roll please…. New Zealand…. And……Spain!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. Isn’t it? I mean there are Christmas songs, Christmas jumpers, presents, amazing food, snow (if we’re lucky), presents, Christmas films, presents. Did we mention presents?!
We’ve all been there;
You; ‘I’ve just been Christmas shopping.’
Your friend; ‘Great, how did it go?’
You; ‘Weeell, I ended up getting this for me. And this for me. And this for me. And a pair of socks for my dad. Merry Christmas me!’
Cue intense feelings of guilt that are only slightly dissipated when you gaze lovingly upon your new possessions.
You want with all your heart to treat your loved ones, but it’s so hard not to get distracted by the shiny things you want. We don’t blame you.
24 months is a long time to go between new phones isn’t it? I’m sure we all remember the halcyon days of 12 month contracts that pretty much guaranteed you a new phone once a year. If shiny new technology is your thing, sometimes even 6 months can seem like too long a time to have the same phone…
So if the latest, must-have phone is coming out, being only a few months in to your contract can seem frustrating to say the least. Even if you’re near the end of your contract, wouldn’t it be nice to already have any upfront cost on a new phone sorted?
That’s where our Trade-in service comes in.
