HTC's new 'diamond-like' One A9S is not short on superlatives

HTC One A9s Smartphone Review


Something new from the east? The One A9s from the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC is the much more affordable successor to the One A9 we reviewed last year. We will find out what changed compared to the previous model.

sophisticated metal chassis ; high contrast display with accurate colors ; decent camera pictures, good videos ; usable runtimes in practice ; power-saving modes and quick-charge ; precise input devices ; low temperatures

chassis can creak under pressure ; occasional connection drops in wireless networks ; dark display with low resolution ; mediocre speaker ; microphone a bit dull ; often high power consumption

HTC's One A9s is definitely a solid mainstream smartphone. You can live with the low-resolution screen thanks to the high contrast ratio and decently accurate colors, but the panel is too dark. The missing wireless standard 802.11ac should not be a big...

HTC One A9s review


The HTC One A9s is a top mid-range phone, with an attractive slimline all-metal build. The 5-inch HD screen looks good, and the phone takes good pictures with its HDR cameras. Performance from the 8-core processor is strong, and battery life is...

We didn't rate last year's One A9 very highly because of its poor battery life and the fact that it was priced as a top-end phone despite mid-range performance. With the A9s, both of our complaints have evaporated. An enhanced battery life and a...

Is HTC's A9 the One? [review]


So you bought iPhone 6. You love the understated styling of the aluminum enclosure and how the device feels in your hands. But iOS is a dog brain. It's loyal and friendly, but you want more than a tail-wagger that needs to be let out to pee. HTC has...

Great design at an affordable price


I've had 2 HTC phones previously and I was not disappointed with this one. The usual HTC design, easy to use, does exactly what I need at an affordable price. Looks like an Iphone with out the cost! Battery could possibly be better, however I do use my...

Nice phone, especially for the price!


The phone is great for me, I just like a phone to make call, texts etc. Go on Facebook, Messenger & WhatsApp. I'm not into games so I couldn't say how well it does on those. I like the fingerprint access, especially with two little ones, they can't get...
