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.
AnonD-387282, 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.
Please #HTCOneA9 @HTC be available to @Tmobile. I love this version of HTC phone, not bulky and very slim and handy. I will get it for my mom for Christmas.
On screen buttons and no front speakers...so why the bezels are so big ???
Anth0ny, 21 Oct 2015if it has a physical home button, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, is there still an on screen home button? ... moreYes, strange to have both on-screen and physical button...seems like poor software.
Had they positioned the 'back' and 'multi-tasking' buttons next to the fingerprint scanner and made that the dedicated home button to use the full size of the screen and had they kept front facing speakers I probably would've bought this phone.... Could have been a great all rounder.
don't see why so much hate, it looks pretty nice. Kudos for HTC making mid range phones with more premium materials... plus its nice to see Android phones going back to 5" or smaller sized screens for one hand usage.
