Ankz, 24 Oct 2015Damn! such a nice phone with poor processor... atleast they should have used 808, if they want... moreNothing wrong with the SoC. If it was a 615 or 616, then I'd agree. But 617 has enough practical and useful differentiation to make it a good Soc. Besides, qualcomm likely picked the right clockspeeds this time to alleviate any overheating. 1.7 ghz was too fast for a 28nm A53, and 1.0 ghz was too slow for basic tasks which will lead to unnecessary core cluster switching (which is what happened with the 615).
Processors are more than CPU and GPU clockspeeds. This thing has a lot of new options and capabilities that make it IMHO a better deal than putting an 801/805, which only really excel in meaningless amounts of additional speed. Sure, the GPU is better, but that's only a deal if you play intensive mobile games. Cat 7 speeds (300dl / 100ul), carrier aggregation, quick charge 3.0, and efficient yet sufficient A53s make the 617 a winner in my book.
no matter who copied whom..if u like then buy and if it would be a i phone clone then apple would must take some legal action against htc..i like it very much specially for camera and design and tnx to this competitive market of smartphone otherwise we would not see these type of outstanding devices...
The red and acid gold look stunning. This is a high end phone not a mid ranger. It trumps the iPhone 6 in many ways.
Naim, 26 Oct 2015Apple copied their 6 and 6s from Htc M7. 4.7 inc display and back design. Then no body say tha... moreYou are absolutely right. Its a mad, mad world and people think that iPhone is and will always be perfect. Sigh!
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2015after the M9 plus i can't trust this company to make a good phone.You don't have to if you don't like. Chill!
Arman , 26 Oct 2015This phone is really surprise for HTC fans awesome phone with beautiful design the design is original from htc m7 but one thing i hate on this phone is the physical power button and that htc logo on upper button.
That's the time for upgrading my s4 :D
I like this phone but why no IR port !
Apple copied their 6 and 6s from Htc M7. 4.7 inc display and back design. Then no body say that Apple copied HTC!!! But when Htc change their own design for something new, everybody say in one word Htc copied i phone. From m7 to m9+ there are same design, that makes Htc lover boar. what's wrong there????? If anybody copied they are apple.
This phone is really surprise for HTC fans awesome phone with beautiful design
Nice think about copying iphone(?). Guys have you ever saw any HTC before that ish.t before, well if you had than you will know who was copying who. Enough said. Read about HTC unimetal body design way before Apple even thought about it.
If the price is right, I think it will sell well. If it's overpriced, I don't think htc will stay in the mobile industry for long. Its sad though,they make one of the premium design smartphone.
I don't always care about phone design, but now i care... I don't care about iphone copying htc or htc copied iphone (which is invalid) but ow man i hate that Samsung looking fingerprint scanner,htc should remove it to the side and make the amazing boomsound front speaker.
AnonD-392973, 25 Oct 2015It's very clear that this device is a copy of iPhone and it changed the positions of cameras ,... moreGet your dictionary and Check what Copy is. ALSO, Try to Check Htc M7. And tell me who the hell is the one who copied the design.
If it sell better, on first quarter of 2016 expect an announcement of HTC One A9 Plus with killer specs. 5.5 inches screen, 26 MP camera, 4 GB ram if not 5, Android 7.1 (Cup cake), 900 snap dragon,gorilla glass 5..... and a disappointing 2500 mAH battery.

Stop using abusive words by calling people stupid, what you've noted down makes it totally different from iPhone. Please find a different word to use, not "copy". There's more you need to note if you compare the 2 Phones.
It changed the positions of cameras ,speaker ,3.5mm audio port , sensors , shape of the engraved home button.
