HTC One M9+ Review

 

Stuck in a downward spiral for what seems like an eternity, troubled Android phone maker HTC has been actively diversifying its portfolio this year. Sure, there was the mandatory One M9 flagship, as well as a bunch of Desire mid-rangers, but we've also...

Nice, metal design ; Decent stereo speakers ; Sense UI is coherent

Inaccurate screen color balance ; User experience needs more work ; Average camera quality ; Troublesome call quality

It's hard to understand what HTC has in mind with the One M9+. Perhaps the key is in the name of the device? The 'plus' should mean it's a better/bigger version of the M9, right? However, that is not entirely true.

HTC One M9+ Review

 

One of the old ones, HTC remains as one of the few smartphone manufacturers that have been able to stand the test of time. Brand loyalty and genuinely well built, pioneering products that consumers want have guaranteed that so far. When the HTC One...

Build quality; 2K display

Camera; Battery life

The HTC One M9+ comes off as a lesson in mediocrity. Sure the build is nice but it has also become quite boring. The double ridge design in fact makes it come off as a bit of a hack job. The camera is once again uncompetitive which is typical HTC. Day...

Review of HTC One M9 Smartphone

 

Almost every quarter, we see new releases of smartphones by various brands, forgoing or a total overhaul of the design. HTC, the Taiwanese manufacturer of the One series smartphones does it differently.

HTC One M9 Plus review: Plus and minus - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC One M9 was met with a muted response. HTC's efforts in refining design felt like a distraction and the new flagship felt like it was slightly adrift,

Great quality build, decent display, mature user interface with Sense 7 benefits, fingerprint scanner

Weak camera, average battery life, lacks fast charging, MediaTek graphics handling

The HTC One M9+ is an improvement on the regular One M9 in a number of areas. It runs cooler with barely any difference in the daily experience when it comes to performance. The battery life is similar or better, despite the boosted display, but the...

HTC One M9+ review

 

The phone the One M9 should have been?

Fingerprint sensor works flawlessly ; Bigger, prettier 2K screen ; Lost none of the M9's design chops

Cameras still not on par with rivals ; Sluggish with multi-tasking and processor hungry games

A levelling-up over the "standard" M9, the M9+ is the HTC to get - but the Galaxy S6 still trumps it

HTC One E9+ vs HTC One M9+ comparison

 

There are currently no technical specifications recorded for this product.

On the specs alone the HTC One M9+ is clearly the better phone in this comparison, and its higher price attests to that. We're drawn to the M9+ because it is the M9 we wanted to see unveiled at MWC, with a Quad HD screen and fingerprint scanner. But as...

HTC One M9+ ramps up screen resolution and scans your fingers

 

The HTC One M9 is still warm from the production line but already HTC has a new variant to tempt you with. Called the One M9+, this phone maintains the beautiful all-metal design of the standard M9, but makes a few key tweaks.

We'll see exactly how this new variant stacks up against its rivals -- not to mention the standard One M9 -- in the full review soon.
