max power, 26 Oct 2015Dude it's not a flagship lol it's a mid-range phone, have you even been paying attention? -_-Origin is price 499 (not 399 which promotion price). This is near close to flagship phone price but pack with middle range spec.
Best Spec that i would design,
1. 4.7inch > 5inch Screen max
2. 720 to 1080 px resolution to save battery life
3. 2500 to 3000mah battery
4. AMOLED Screen
5. IR Blaster
6. USB 3.0 , Quick Charging, Induction Changing
7. 13 MP Camera, 5 MP front
8. Corning Gorilla Glass 4
9. Back Finger print Scanner
11. 64Bit Low power , Non-Heating Processor
14. 3 GB RAM
15. 32, 64 , 128 GB Internal with expandable memory
16. 32 Bit Internal DAC
17. Decent GPU
18. Other basic features.
There's a reason why Apple SHUT UP about the A9, because they know they copied the htc one m7 design for the iphone 6, if not there would be like 50 lawsuits by now, its that simple, HTC carry on.
After the 2+ years of hell I went through with HTC One M7 Google Edition, I will never buy HTC again. HTC HD2, me and my wife owned them, back in the days these were best phones ever, but they have already felt apart.
Nice. I want the Cast iron version - when will it come
Iphone 6s Apple Sydney $1200.00- $1500.00+ no one complains
HTC A9 $499-$599 - everyone complains - Go figure.
Bigger screen, Bigger battery, Image stabilization, Easy vid processing
Bigger storage capacity, More ram, Shoots raw, Marshmallow etc.
Efficient chip set, Amoled, Battery save mode and it looks and feels great same as Apple.
Felt very sorry for the battery, and good luck for those who thinks 2150mAh is alright for 1 day usage without charging.

Anonymous, 21 Oct 2015Fingerprint sensor should've been placed on the back with stereo speakers upfront. Otherwise j... moreThey could of also integrated it in the power button like the Z5. That would of left space for the boom sound speakers as well. But anyway, i think HTC decided to release this mid-range phone to see if it can capture some of the Iphone users, since it looks so similar. I'm hoping the M10 will be a real game changer! If not, HTC will slowly fall.. Which is disappointing because i've been a big fan!
Seriously?, 22 Oct 2015$600 for mid range phone. Man, I'll get iPhone, not shitty A9 just for fashion. And bezzel... ... moreI'm assuming you don't live in the USA, maybe the UK.. right? Anyway, it's $399 even here in the states. Which i think is a good price for this device. I agree that $600 is way too much with that money you can get something else that's better.
I was about to click "pre-order", then i realized that it had an AMOLED display.. Sure they look great the first year but then they start to get that annoying screen burn in which you can do nothing about.. AMOLED's just don't age well. HTC One S, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Note 3, Galaxy Nexus.. I've owned all them and at some point they got a screen burn in..
I also own an HTC M7.. and the screen looks just as beautiful as day one!
I'd say AMOLED looks better and is better in the short run, but long run IPS tech just lasts longer and is more reliable..
mid-ranger phone with metal-clad body,AMOLED screen,4MP UltraPixel Selfie camera, Dolby Audio,Fingerprint sensor. wow.......... so nice.
SD617 supports 1080p@60fps, so devs will unlock it in custom ROMs
lg user, 20 Oct 2015sorry but it is a pretty phone,... and it is not high end this is a mid range level device wit... morePretty? It is a failure copy from iPhone. I know HTC did first in such similar design but now it is just too much copy.
Let wait see how well this phone can sell. I guarantee it can't sell well.
HTC got nice specs to go with their phone but because of the price, we all drift away from it. Yes HTC is premium but you cant follow iPhone premium way and make a nice phone and then put a price that no one can buy. iPhone got their fan because there is one iPhone. But HTC is an android, and android got many to choose from.What HTC need to do is reboot all there RND department and do from scratch. Make something no other brands do...i like HTC, but because of the price, it fail.
