Is there need for screen guard for HTC a9 as it has gorilla glass 3 or 4....how is the screen without screen guard, is there any scratches noticeable....
All Right!! I got this phone and its almost a week now and these are some things noticable when using HTC One A9
-The looks and feel of this phone is absolutely amazing. the design is something anybody would love and is not too huge too big to fit your face.
-The display is fantastic, and you can get a good dose of your 1080 HD video experience on your device. PLUS, the earphones that come with this phone is built for Experiencing pleasure, the boom sound when turned on in the phone gives your earphones an extra boost that will make music sound incredible specially when it comes to bass.
-The Volume of the device is not impressive but you can change that if your earphones are connected.
-Battery life is saddening, when you are really having a good time with your phone browsing youtube or playing games, you can see the battery life drained quiker and that's a turn off about this phone. BUT, this phone caharges very quick Although, the Qualcom Quik charger is not included in the box and you will have to buy it separately if you want to own this.
-Camera is delightful. clear and performs well in low light. the selfie camera also is pretty cool.
-I have so far not found any severe heating problems with the phone. and the only time you can notice it heating is when you are playing some games.
-Finger Print Scanner is very responsive and quick. and can unlock the phone in just a second. Setting up the finger print is a task but once done its smooth as Jack Daniels Whisky. lol (love it)
Finally would rate this phone 4.5 out of 5.
Wish you best in buying this phone.
Using this phone past a month very good phone the only issue is battery which I have to charge twice a day on using 4G with sync on for 4 email ids, facebook,twitter and whatsapp.
Its a decent phone no hanging problems.
I have seen people bashing the phone , may be they have not used the phone or does not know how to use properly.
I would recommend this phone to anyone.
And I request HTC that in upcoming phone give a bigger battery.
HelpThisCompany, 11 Apr 2016Using one a9 for a month now. This is my second attempt to buy HTC after Sensation 5 years ago... moreI think you did not use the same phone HTC a9. Not the best phone is a fact but many things that you said are not so true. The camera is not bad compared to other brands, Sony, Asus, Huawei and even iPhone. The icons give to change site yes. Compared to delete multiple photos at the same time it is also possiível just press the button. Image quality is also good, the only thing that is not good is the battery does not take much but with good management can be a day of use.
Using one a9 for a month now. This is my second attempt to buy HTC after Sensation 5 years ago. Bought it in Taiwan, in their official store in SynTrend in Xinsheng.
Please read this before purchasing one. And think twice. Don't be me, I bought it on a pure impulse without going through forums and asking people and now regret this decision. I'm not bashing I'm giving an opinion.
Battery is crap. I keep all background apps completely off by constantly usung shutapp and similar apps, which is annoying as hell. All comms are off except for 4g and Wi-Fi where possible. Battery save mode on. Still battery dies before I get home. It's ridiculous how fast it dies, people. Literary watching one 5 minute video on youtube drains up to 4-5%. Iphone has even smaller capacity battery and still lives longer!
Sense is horrible. It does not have common sense usability, oh irony. It's like HTC deliberatly calls things that they lack, sending subtle message to us. Moreover, it lacks functions that Android has by default. Is HTC trying to pull some control freak mode on us or what? I can't even change the order of icons in the quick panel. After Samsung, Sony, Asus and Iphone - this is the worst UI I have ever seen.
Apps inside are poor. You dont get a music app, fine there are better options on play market. You don't get a solid gallery. All you get is a cheap, one day effort from a coding beginner app that you can't use even to delete multiple pics at the same time. You've made 100 picture you want to delete? Sure, tap, delete, tap, delete, tap, delete, tap, delete...
Camera is shi... sorry, it's just so bad. The quality of picture even in daylight remains horrible, slight zoom on my computer (15" fullhd) shows all posible pixels you may find. The most annoying thing is this weird promise to have a 13mp camera, but guess what, you can use all 13mp in a 4:3 mode, whilst 16:9 allows only 10mp. WHAT? So you are lying to customers when promise 13mp and fullhd pics? Because you can't do both at the same time? However you flip it, the quality of pictures is plain crap.
Speed. Not so good either. Say we take BBTAN as an example. When we get to the point of having 20-30 balls on the screen this phone starts to lag. Forget the game, it LAGS in browser when sliding down the page. LAGS! OMG 2016 and a phone lags when browsing, like it's 2007 again! Samsung s3 mini does much better job although it's 3 or 4 years older. And does not lag in BBTan even when you have 80 balls.
The size. It has a similar size to Z3, but somehow feels much lighter and smaller in hand. Ok, not bad. The build is nice, fine. But again how come you put such a shitty battery inside and expect it to work a day? The led on the front is the same as it was in Sensation as well as the speaker, haha. It's like you are not even trying.
All in all NT$16000 for this. Really? You are trying to sell a budget phone as a top model, but in reality it's actual price should be around NT$8000 and not a dollar more.
Jesus, HTC, this is my second phone from you, and this will be the last one, I will discourage anyone around me to buy anything from you ever again. You make dozens of phones and all of them are shit, have you considered making 3 phones, but making them good? You were number one once and now you barely doing it out of your bankruptsy. Good riddance.
Specs look good except for the battery...it won't last a day...

Anonymous, 06 Apr 2016I am speaking about HTC One A9. Not I phone.I'm also talking about A9. I think you can't understand my comment. If it seems to you, A9 is costly according to its specs, what you told about iphone 6. Is it's price reasonable with its specs. Lol
Jon beg, 04 Apr 2016I think iphone 6 price should be less than 15 thousand according to specifications..I am speaking about HTC One A9. Not I phone.

Why phones are becoming taller and taller, heavier and heavier for the same screen size, that too for such a meagre battery size. Compare it with Samsung S4 & S5.
Compare LG G3 & G5. Why the hell G5 is taller than G3? G5 is heavier may be because of the metal build.
Phones should become sleeker, light weight, smaller for the same screen size and battery.....

Nice phone HTC One A9. But Over priced for a mid range specification . The price is above 30 thousand. 20 thousand is good for this spec.
