I want my HTC One M7 back!
After owning the M7 for 2.5 years I reluctantly 'upgraded' to the A9 after the dreaded purple tint hit my M7. Everything else was great.
I'm so disappointed with the A9 that I'm getting the M7 camera fixed and the A9 can go on ebay.
A9 battery worse than that of the 30 month old M7.
A9 screen plasticky and attracts dust - can't beat M7 gorilla glass.
A9 speakers tinny - M7 beats audio awesome.
A9 has micro sd but who needs one these days?
A9 has no IR blaster so TV remote (peel) doesn't work - a great feature sadly missed
A9 charger / usb socket - hard to tell when the cable is properly in. M7 has a nice positive click.
A9 home button disappears when you need it - hard to swipe it back in some apps. M7 permanent home button - always there when you need it.
Surprisingly the A9 is no faster than the 30 month old M7.
A9 power button - in the wrong place IMHO.
A9 cheap plastic back is so slippy I've dropped it twice in two days.
A9 finger print scanner - OK - this is pretty cool but doesn't make up for the other disappointments.

I've been using the HTC A9 for a week now and I really enjoy it. I'm used to phablet sized phones but I wanted to add a 5.0 screen into my device rotation and choose HTC. I swap between Huawei p8 max, Galaxy note 4 and Nexus 6p. The A9 is compact and has snappy performance. Photos come out great (I changed the setting in the camera to full size). I'm impressed with the sound codecs they use, it sounds great with my Bose headset. I normally use a Cowon Plenue D but the A9 is right up there so I don't need to swap devices if I'm not in the mood. I love the build quality and 2.5d screen of the A9. I also like the software. I've discovered I'm not a fan of pure Android, finding it too dull. The HTC offers lots of customizations and their own special apps and widgets. Eventually I'll put a 3rd party launcher on it but for now is great. The battery is modest but for me it's not a big deal since I'm usually around a charger. It's only gotten down to 25% once but I hadn't fully charged it and was downloading & installing a bunch of updates. It lasts a whole work day with blue tooth, email and Slack running along with reading my news feed. It's no Huawei p8 max (that thing goes forever!) but it's better than my iOS experience. All in all, the A9 is a super nice phone and makes me consider HTC's higher end offerings.
I have this device from a month ago and am happy with, is more than enough for usual things. I don't play games on phone so don't ask me about that, i targeted an all-arround nice looking phone and get it right. I am especially happy with earphone use when travelling, walking on street or bus, i bought also a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-CKX9iS earphones for can enjoy various kind of music everywhere and all what i can say it is amazing! A lot of reviews and myself i can confirm this is the best phone for audiophiles if you use decent earphones. The other qualities maybe not the best, but for a midrange device, this offer a good combo with not too much disadvandages. Personnaly only thing what i not like on it is the maybe too slippery body. I totally recommand it, especially for those who spend daily time for listen music when travelling.
Saim, 23 Apr 2016One A9 Battery timing is very Good . I m Happy .You are lying, Paul, Saim, whatever you name is, Mr HTC manager.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016How is the audio quality in earphones?It's good. But that's it.
Jeez, you can even see futile attempt by Chinese managers to post "good comments" here, they didn't even bother to fix their grammar and just posted it several times, thinking "ah, white people are dumb, I say their language, they buy my product"
Again, people, the battery life is very low, because HTC did not optimise their version of Android.
