walkman8, 23 Mar 2015If both of them use S810, I'm not interested one bit. s6 uses exynos 7420 its much better actualy
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2015Yikes... Toshiba makes camera for phones? You learn something new every day. Thnx :) They have been provided imaging sensors for some lumia camera flagships in the past...
Let me get this straight...
M9 has worse battery life, laughable low-light performance, slighlty worse screen quality, mediocre loudspeaker volume, very hot (pun intended) body and is thicker and less ergonomic than predecessor. Wow, just wow.
I'm mostly baffled by its pathetic battery life. With supposedly more efficient chipset, bigger battery capacity and identical screen it got WORSE results than M8. Even worse than S6 with hungry QHD screen!
I mean really HTC, what's wrong with you?

S6 b... moreboth htc m9 and samsung galaxy s6 are poor in battery life.
only lg g4 will have a better battery life...watch and learn...

S6 batterylife is hideous for the money they ask for it
and people were talking about the battery life on the s6 and look at this phone it has 1080 screen and a bigger battery and still a worst endurance rating than the s6 this just shows why Samsung is the best of the best.
Very disappointed in the M9, no OIS or even digital stabilization, a chipset not much better than the 805, old LCD screen (no AMOLED), poor battery life and a tired design now, those glass front renders where amazing!
Was also disappointed in Samsung S6 to reduce the battery size and remove SD Card support and charge a small fortune for extra space!
From being very excited about getting a shiny new phone I am now very disappointed - I voted with my money and purchased a Samsung S5 with the 805 chip set (GM901f) - should see me through to next year and now very happy.
Maybe next year HTC!
GFraz, 23 Mar 2015Note 4 has an extremely poor loudspeaker and full of Samsung's bloatware though. It's a shame ... moreNo and no. The loudspeaker of the Note 4 is actually of great quality and it's very loud too, it even scored 'Excellent' in gsmarena review. And it's bloatwares have been reduced greatly.

In fact, by the sound of things, HTC would have been better apeing Samsung and Apple and gone for a Sony lens instead.

It's a shame there isn't really any perfect phone out there at the moment. I was thinking of the M9 but am unhappy with that battery life and heating.
What a waste of a 20MP camera. Come on GSMARENA, these shots are poor, very poor. HTC still have major noise issues in their camera and the low light photograph quality is laughable. My next phone will definitely not be a HTC.
Haplo, 23 Mar 2015Hmm, which one should I pick, this or Galaxy Note 4? The answer would be much simpler if Sa... moreNote 4. Duh..! It's the single best phone right now. Touchwiz is less bloated and much smoother. The screen res is for VR, which is out of this world. Do some research about it, it's amazing.
Very nice audio output on headphones again. Screen is unimpressive (low resolution for being a 2015 flagship) and it's also too small for my taste. I expected more, but seems like my next device really isn't made by HTC when I switch from the M8. :)
GSMARENA, YOU SAID: "There are only a few smartphones louder than the M9 in the whole history of the industry". WICH ARE THOSE "FEW" SMARPHONES LOUDER THAN M8 OR M9 ?????? NAME THEM !! Personally i know only one: Nokia N91 and maybe Samsung Serenta for Bang & Olufsen, but with this last one i am not sure anymore. So those "few" smartphones louder than M9 are in fact just only one: Nokia n91. Of course i am talking here only about the loudness of the headphones output, not the speakers....
