A lot of people have gone to a lot of effort to hate on this phone, but it’s not bad at all. It may have not upgraded like the S6 did from the S5, but I can tell you that that was needed for it to be in competition with the M9. It may not also have the uselessness gimmicks of a S6 but it’s by far more reliable and stable.
HTC One M9 Smartphone Review
HTC have taken, probably, the best phone from last year, M8, and improved it’s weaknesses. The camera. The camera on the M8 was it’s biggest flaw but now the M9 comes with a 20 mega-pixel back camera, which still lacks compare to the S6 but is much better than any iPhone. They’ve stuck to UltraPixels on the front which makes it perfect for taking Selfies and has the best all-round feel of a phone you will find.
Battery life is good, especially compared to the S6 (however this is because the screen on the S6 is much sharper).
The BoomSound speakers on the M9 are incredible and again, is the best speakers you’ll find on a phone however some may not like now big they are on the top and bottom of the screen.
They’ve moved the on/off button from the top to the right side of the phone, which was also something they had to change. However, some may still not like the placement of the buttons as they are too low down.
Screen size is good, but they could lose the HTC black thing at the bottom and the black outline around the phone.On screen buttons have never been a problem with users of the M8 and M7 but this means that HTC were unable to add a fingerprint scanner.
Overall, this is a great device which I recommend you buy. You may not upgrade from a M8 to the M9 but if you previously had a Samsung device or a iPhone and want a change, this your best bet. Customers that have bought the M7 and M8 have been really happy and I’m sure that they will be too with this.
