Battery is more than my wife's i6. Anyhow, I really want the cast Iron A9 version. Cannot wait for that baby to come out.
High price, bad battery life and design to be mocked at? No thanks
leo sk, 29 Oct 2015They ruined everything with snapdragon 617. They should have gone with the more powerful helio... moreNobody wants garbage processors sorry mate. Mediatek processors are automatically ''no thank you'' when buying a phone.
They ruined everything with snapdragon 617. They should have gone with the more powerful helio x10 and reduce the cost.
Just checked the battery ratings and... No need to analyze A9 further more. I don't need a phone with 1/2 day battery life. Failure as galaxy Alpha was.
However the A9 is doomed.
Last year HtC One m9 scored 50k Antutu points.
This year new A9 scores 40K Antutu points and battery is shockingly bad at 2150maH.
Now maybe I have been in time warp but this is not evolution of smartphone. Its going backwards in the sake of cloning and competing against competitor with fruit shape.
Goodbye HtC. You were great in the beginning with HD2 but now absolutely woeful.
AMOLED displays is not battery friendly as many would think (or as it is advertised) . I had many devices with SuperAmoled screens, but non of them was a good battery companion. In fact IPS screen from Sony are much more battery friendly. And I don' really know why HTC decided to put these displays instead of excellent IPS ones used for M8 and M9.
Igor Carvalho, 28 Oct 2015I think HTC is using the GS4 panel there... to lower costs... I had a GS4 an the display was ... moreThey probably are, that's why they think it's a hero device - it saves their costs! And I recon if want an AMOLED screen, get a Samsung because they'll only sell their inefficient screens to everyone else!
Premium display ? At what sense ? max brightness 340...... 1080p
A normal display would be a better word .
Middle range phone with near higher spec price. See how many units HTC can sell.
pescarolo, 29 Oct 2015The battery life is a serious drawback. I can assume the A9 has been lost alreadyYes. It is an attractive package but battery capacity let it down. It should have at least 2600mAh battery.
The A9 is not 1mm thicker than the M9, it is in fact, I believe, 2.2mm thinner
Grey1213, 28 Oct 2015HTC trying to rejuvenate their image as 'polished android,' should be interesting to see wheth... moreThat could be one of their goals. Really. You can't fault them. They have tried everything, should stick with phone builds, but mainly they don't have the crowd or advertising money that Samsung or Apple has
