HTC One M9 Smartphone Review

 

Nice soundbox. HTC tries to keep old strengths with the One M9 and does not really change the design of its flagship smartphone. The speakers still create a very good sound, but the latest version once again reveals problems in respect of the reworked...

Great design and build quality, Great speakers, IPX3, Expandable storage, Good connectivity, High range of the Bluetooth connection, Good GPS, Fast storage, Bright and high-contrast display, Fast SoC

but the GPU loses performance under load, Comparatively bad camera, Meager battery runtimes, No quick-charge or wireless charging, QWERTY keyboard even in the German layout, Pricing

The HTC One M9, unfortunately, lacks any real innovations, but the Taiwanese manufacturer can improve some aspects, so the M9 is a very good smartphone. The high-resolution SLCD3 panel can convince with the high luminance and the good contrast ratio....

HTC One M9 Review: Hands-on

 

The highly rumored (and leaked) HTC One M9 was unveiled yesterday at MWC and we were in the room for Peter Chou's presentation on stage. The HTC One M9 looks very similar than its predecessor the O...

With the release HTC One M9, the Taiwanese manufacturer played it safe this year with this highly elegant but unsurprising device. The camera has been improved with a 20.7 Mp sensor and 4K video, however we still need to compare it to the best camera...

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 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...

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 ( 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...

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
