HTC One M9 review: Another year, another modest step forward

 

HTC's 2015 flagship was designed to feel more premium than previous models, but it runs the risk of feeling dated two years on. It's sturdy and plenty powerful with its Snapdragon 810 chipset, but the M9's 20-megapixel camera doesn't seem any better...

Great performance ; Top-tier build quality ; Sense 7 is lightweight and thoughtful ; Quick charging works well

Main camera is lackluster ; Screen isn't as vivid as last year's model ; BoomSound speakers lack some oomph ; Battery lifeishit-or-miss

It might sound maudlin, but I really wanted to love the One M9 as much as I did the One M7. This seemed like the year HTC would nail it again. They came close! I'm still surprised that it's Sense that I'm most impressed with. BlinkFeed is a first-rate...

HTC One M9 Review

 

The One M9 is HTC's latest top-end smartphone. The new model is a touch smaller and thinner than its predecessor, the One M8, but otherwise sports a very similar design. Under the hood HTC has finally dropped the 4MP "ultrapixel" sensor of the...

HTC One M9 ( 32GB, silver gold)

 

HTC's 2015 top-of-the-line phone recycles the same sleek design as last year's M8 , sticking to the luxurious all-metal case and 1080p HD screen while incorporating key spec improvements -- most notably a speedy, state-of-the-art Qualcomm Snapdragon...

The HTC One M9 inherits its predecessor's stunning metal design and strong speakers, and has a bright, sharp display. It runs the latest version of Android, and the new Sense 7 software is simple, responsive and highly customisable. It's one of the few...

The M9's camera quality and battery life don't measure up to its competitors. For better or worse, the phone feels like a rerun of last year's HTC One.

The updated HTC One M9 packs speed and software improvements into a handset that remains lustworthy in middle age, but it doesn't exceed the competition where it counts.

HTC One M9 review

 

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Such seems to be the guiding philosophy behind the HTC One M9, and for the most part, the approach works. The One M9 is a beautiful Android phone worthy of your consideration, unless you already own last year's HTC...

HTC One M9 review: A disappointingly good phone

 

HTC makes only modest improvements to one of our favorite phones, while competitors take major leaps forward.

Excellent build quality and all-metal design ; Fantastic stereo speakers

Unreliable camera ; Mediocre performance and battery life for a flagship phone

The One M9 is a modest update of last year's One M8. It's a good phone, but doesn't advance the state of the art.

HTC One M9 (T-Mobile)

 

The iterative HTC One M9 remains a physical jewel and a strong Android smartphone, but fails to take the next step.

Fantastic design and build quality. Fast performance. Seamless software customization options. MicroSD card slot.

So-so battery life. Competitive, but still-disappointing camera.

Camera and Conclusions The M8's Achilles heel was camera performance. The 4-megapixel, or "Ultrapixel," sensor just didn't make the cut against phones like the iPhone 5s or the Galaxy S5 . HTC moved that sensor to the front, which makes for some really...

Review: HTC One M9

 

The new One looks the same as the last, but it has a new camera, some more intelligent software, and an incredible number of customization...

As beautiful as the Ones before. Great screen, great battery life. HTC's onto something, letting you customize your phone so much. Uh Oh Protection will replace your phone, no questions asked

The camera just still can't keep up. The One wants to be responsive and aware, but it's just not smart enough to be really useful yet

HTC One M9 review: more repeat than sequel

 

Déjà vu (noun): a feeling that one has seen or heard something before I've spent the better part of the last two weeks with HTC's new One M9. It's the latest flagship from the once-powerful...

Great design ; Speedy performance ; Solid battery life

Disappointing camera ; Power button too close to volume keys

HTC One M9 (Unlocked)

 

There's no question that the HTC One M9 is the most tastefully designed Android phone out there, but we'll have to wait to see how well it performs on U.S. networks.

Gorgeous design and materials. Attractive themes. Fast performance.

Poor camera. Body scratches easily.

Conclusions The One M9 holds HTC's course. The One M8 was already the best-looking Android phone on the market, with terrific front-facing speakers, attractive themes, and an unfortunate camera. The M9, at least the one I'm looking at right now,...
