What ever idiotic manager signed off this device with a paltry 2,150 mAh battery needs to be sectioned. Just having basic maths would've screamed out lousy everything times.
Web browsing times at under 5h30 was a joke 3 years ago, let alone late 2015. Way back when, I used to own the superbly built HTC Legend, the reason I switched to Samsung (And am on the 4th Samsung flagship since then) was the far superior battery life! HTC sucked, disappointingly, even then 😢
this is what would happen if samung and apple made a baby together, but this just looks horrible,

Because A9 uses SD617 chipset which is power efficient and Nexus 5 uses SD800 chipset which requires more power than SD617. The talk time, web browsing & stand by times of A9 will be more than Nexus 5 though its uses less battery because it takes less power for processing..

Screen resolution and chipset is the factor who drain the battery first. Please see the possessor clock speed of A9 (1.5ghz) and the nexus 5 (2.3). A9 uses power efficient SD617 where as Nexus uses power hungry SD800 chipset. Understand?
Its ok about the battery nowadays! People started holding their iphone on 1 hand connected to the battery charger on the other hand! learn from it android phones! ^__^
Why cant all understand, this is not a FLAGSHIP device its mid range, and M series will continue to be flagship, so dualspeakers etc will be on next year m10.

Seriously? Nexus 5 is a 5 inch device and has a 2300mah battery and everyone complained about how small that was for a device like that. 2150 is ridiculously small and the web browsing time is abysmal. The only thing that stands out about this phone is its design.

I use m8 its very nicee device even better then i6
Even apple and samsung users gets jealous of htc design and sound quality
I was a big HTC fan until this device came.
No originality whatsoever, HTC once had unique designs for their phones, and now they're just trying to recreate name for themselves with a controversial design like this. I am aware that the M7 came before the design of the iPhone 6, but the A9 looks way too similar to the iPhone. Also, no Boomsound speakers which was one of the trademarks of the HTC lineup, and a horribly small battery makes this device a no-go. What were they thinking, announcing this as their flagship device? Well, at least there's a microSD card, you can't take that for granted in these days.
HTC phones will not sell if they keep on failing to put proper battery, proper camera & proper price... HTC was doing quite well in 2013 & 2014... but don't know what is happening to them this year... I used to be HTC fan (still using M7 & E8) & I'm sad to see them like this...
from $214 Desire 816-$175 One Mini M4-$215 OneM7.....this beauty A9 should be in $320-390 range
Please confirm whether it has notification led for messages ,charging .
Complete tragedy... Performance and battery both suck. Who will pay $500 for this?
AnonD-377325, 28 Oct 2015I loved it when daily star said, has htc made their biggest mistake yet, well 1080p screen and... moreNah is the chippset.
The snapdragon 600 series is never was a energy efficient.
We dont know about the super amoled display. Maybe isnt the last gen diament pentle like the s6.
After the resuls of the battery live test seems that my S3 neo gor better life time.
For the people who say that A9 inspired by iPhone Design or copycat or just throw some words which they dont even think before they speak or too blind to see or totally Clueless!
1. Antenna Strips over the back? TOO OBVIOUS!!! just look at One M7 (2013)
2. Flat Back? just look at Desire series!
3. 2.5D curved edge front cover glass?HTC Droid DNA (end of 2011) Hello???
4. Circular Camera??? look at M7 / M8
5.Circular flash? look at M7 once more
6.Dual tone flash? M8 maybe?
