HTC One M9 Plus review: Plus and minus

 

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, facing completion from all sides. The HTC One M9+ is an improvement on the regular One M9 in a...

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 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 Plus Review- Past and Furious

 

This year's HTC flagship needed a far more resilient spec sheet and components than this; it's just riding on its successful design of the past, mated to the furious boom sound and Quad HD display.

Strong metal body ; Amazing Dolby audio ; Fast camera

Lags in gaming ; Heats up ; Average camera quality ; Low battery backup

HTC One M9+ comes out to be the best video watching phone in its category. It’s amazing audio experience, viewing experience on Quad HD screen and dual Wi-Fi streaming makes watching videos a leisurely experience. The phone compromises on ergonomics to...

HTC One M9 Plus review: Not what we expect from a flagship

HTC One M9 plus Review

 

The only thing the HTC One M9+ has over its competitors is its looks and build, which is not enough to shell out 50k for this device. If you're going to spend this kind of money for a flagship device, there's a better performer in the Galaxy S6.

Looks good ; Excellent build quality

Performance is not as good as competitors ; Battery is weak ; Sub-par camera
