I am mad because I have the money here to buy this phone sim free but again something lets it down.
Battery/camera are the biggest things in a smartphone and both are poor in M9. Why did boss of HTC not speak up and tell his workers this is not good enough we can't release this phone too public with this embarrassing camera and shoddy battery life. I don't think they care because if they did they would not release such half baked products and that goes for all companies.
I am right though, the camera sensor is ok its the software and image processing that is bad and why should i have to turn off this and that and "reduce screen brightness" .?
This phone in gold silver colour is gorgeous and pin sharp screen and top audio through headphones but camera and battery are poor. Think I could get round battery (even tho 2015 and should not have too) but camera is something I do use AND video recording too in nightclubs. If these companies cannot crack these faults then don't bother bringing out the phone.
Kamlesh007, 24 Apr 2015HTC ONE M9 is a great phone and it has its own quickcharge 2.0 technology through which batter... moreSpoiling the fun. Why should we in 2015 have to try to save battery it is supposed to be a smartphone. Why can't we enjoy its screen on full brightness have all features turned on and enjoy the full smartphone experience? What is point year in year out of owning a smartphone only for it to be turned into a dumb phone because you have to turn features off.
Never mind silly QHD screens manufacturers why don't you spend your money on battery, camera software and maximum software support.
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2015STILL no fingerprint security??? HTC is brilliant, but when will their security catch up with... moreFriend,I'm using HTC one m7 at present.now I'm planning to buy m9.I'm a music lover.I'm using Yamaha earphone for listening to music. M7 produce superior sound quality. What about the sound quality of m9? Without beats audio is that produce better sound clarity than m7 or not? Please help me.
nick, 26 Apr 2015The specs says the phone is 9.6mm thick but I looked at the pictures and the phone sides still... moreIt feels great. A little sharp on the side compare to m8 but nothing annoying. Battery life is better after update, but still heats a bit after heavy use. Overall a great, snappy really fast phone
DenisXD, 25 Apr 2015I really had high hopes for this, when I saw it at my local store I was afraid to even compare... moreNormally devices which come with audio enhancement tools/software like Dolby, Beats Audio, Maxx Audio etc will produce lower volume sound... that's the sound after fine tuned...
Try to compare your Sony Ericsson with HTC One M8... I'm sure you'll get a totally different result...
The specs says the phone is 9.6mm thick but I looked at the pictures and the phone sides still look very good. To anyone who has this phone could you tell me how it feels in hand.
I really had high hopes for this, when I saw it at my local store I was afraid to even compare it's loudness to my 5 years old Sony Ericsson W995. I was certain that M9 would be much louder, but marketing and real life hands on are different things.
W995 is 20% louder, yes. That louder, and it's bass output is better than M9's. I tested it again and again, with theatre, music, boomsound and no boomsound modes and W995 except from louder, it sounded heavier, better. When M9 has so much clarity that ruins it's bass output. But hey, at least via 3,5 jack they sounded almost identical in both quality and loudness.
I know that M9 is better phone on everything else, but it was marketed as the best and loudest music phone ever, and since the music part is vital for me, I won't buy M9.
I`m not trying to bash M9, just stating the fact that M9's speakers are not as loud as I expected them to be, not even close.
And that my 5 years old W995 is 20% louder? Why htc? just why?..
STILL no fingerprint security??? HTC is brilliant, but when will their security catch up with Samsung & Apple?
ozcan102, 24 Apr 2015Apertura of front camera is better than rear camera. Why? The battery of M8 is better than M9'... moremainly because there was a lot of performance boosts from the m8. but they forgot about the battery usage with these upgrades.
HTC ONE M9 is a great phone and it has its own quickcharge 2.0 technology through which battery is drained less often but still there are ways through which you can save HTC ONE M9 battery life like
1) reducing the brightness of your device.
2)reduce the screen timeout of your device.
3) turn off wifi , bluetooth , 4g.
4) install battery guru
5)turn off gps and location services.
