Corvus Corax, 22 Oct 2015Dealbreakers: 1) ridiculously underpowered battery in that big case. 2) that big case - it's j... moreThis is a mid-tier phone... not a flagship like what the Galaxy S5 was. The equivalent was the HTC One M8 which has stereo speakers. You're comparing 2 different tiers of devices. But yes the next flagship they release in May should have stereo speakers.
this phone is awsome but little bit mistake made battery has given 2150 MAH only an d in todays date no on willl accepet this in this cast wilke having features of soo mouch but got damnmed in batterry make some improve ment
for all folks talking about copying,, keep in mind that HTC was the first phone maker who adopted aluminium cases in mobile phone industry, the top and bottom strips were already available in all M series. the only thing HTC has done that they dropped off the curved back side which is a thumbs up step forward.
In Denmark the small version with 2gb ram 16gb memory is going to cost a whopping equivalent of $757, completely out of this world ridiculous. Just make this an US only release.
Dear HTC! If you want, this device to sell like hot cakes, forget the high price! Forget what Apple is doing with their Iphones! This is not going to work! You need premium devices at a lower price. If you listen to this, you will survive the next 2 years for sure.
one finger, 21 Oct 2015HTC ONE M7: 2013 Iphone 6: 2014 Now tell me who is copying whose design.Look at iPod 5th gens design, then look at iPhone 5's design, iPhone 6 is a combination of both.
Dealbreakers: 1) ridiculously underpowered battery in that big case. 2) that big case - it's just too long. 3) where are the stereo speakers - which are a hallmark of what's good about HTC? I guess I just have to stick with my Galaxy S5 and hope Samsung, which really doesn't care about its older phones, finally gives it Marshmellow.
dnd, 21 Oct 2015It will be another failure of HTC definitely. Actually it has hurt the emotions of htc users; ... moreThose are words from a Apple fanboy, actually Apple copied HTC desing from a few years back, HTC just went back to his old desing which Apple copied. So in the end the ego that's hurt is the Apple fanboy's one, which were reminded that their flagship is a copy of a few years old HTC phone.
All thing accepted, but not accepted like HTC Desire SV. After a year it shutdown automatically. I will purchase after a year. lol. sorry HTC lost trust. I will not prefer any model of HTC.
$400 for this fone?? I suggest HTC to think again.... 3GB/32GB should be maximum of $300 and 2GB/16GB shouldn't go beyond $240.
htc one A9 is the best looking phone today I like it and it's amazing
for sure I will buy one but why no IR port ??
It's great with new model n chip. But somehow HTC still stuck with 5" for this new model n poor battery. If like that, I think they will go bust soon instead of returning to profit.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015Yes, strange to have both on-screen and physical button...seems like poor software.i don't think it has a physical button. I think that home button is only for fingerprint; like we have for OnePlus2. And in my option I like that there are no physical keys on either side of fingerprint reader because when i play games or watch video sometimes i accidentally hit the menu or back keys. Which i liked about iPhone, there is place to rest your fingers :)
I think most of the commenters are so stupid. The HTC One A9 is a "Mid-Range" Phone as the company officially announced, so this phone cannot be compared to iPhone 6 or Samsung S6 or any other Top Range Smartphone. That means, One A9 is attended to be suitable for the majority of the people, who don't need Super Performance, and don't want to pay a lot of money. Now in this case, and without testing the phone by my hand, i think that the phone & its price are good. Maybe the price could be more lower, but i don't see that is "Too High" as some commenters said.
