Wow this device is looking very nice, but can anyone tell me what is the big black dot behind this walkie talkie?

the battery.... It simply needs to be fixed.
You can't just build phones without improving on battery life.
Its just a good eye catcher without the power/functionality inside.
Moreover take a very long time to charge and then it drains out within a hour usage.it can't be used as phone or has to be used only for making calls,pretty good as feature phone with touch like mimics
HTC FAN, 18 Mar 2015Keep in mind that the phone has yet to be released. Any tests, benchmarks, battery life stats ... moreMaybe but look at HTC's terrible track record when it comes to battery life. Only the M8 was ever very good. That's like one out of nine generations since 2007. LG G Flex2 doesn't exactly blow anyone anyway with its scores using the same SoC but video playback is over 10 hrs. The closer to 9-10 hrs for video playback, the closer to an "A" (90-100%). But the M9 has 6 hrs and 8 min. That is like 61% or D-. Pathetic for a 5 inch/FHD. And no fast charging where you can 10 min and get 4 hrs use. HTC is going back to the good ol' days when they were terrible at battery. Old habits are hard to break.
artur, 18 Mar 2015who uses infrared anymore.pointless having this feature on a phoneI do on my samsung S5 as a remote and I no longer have to fight for or look for the remote

Any tests, benchmarks, battery life stats has yet to be conclusively determined as the final version of the phone is not complete. In short, you're getting ahead of yourself.
artur, 18 Mar 2015who uses infrared anymore.pointless having this feature on a phoneSo you can control the tv.
So nice. Works very good. Camera is awesome..
I like it my HTC M9
6 hrs 8 min for video playback is extremely disappointing especially for a phone with a 5 inch/FHD. The LG G Flex2 scored 10+ hrs for video playback. Web browsing can vary. But video playback is closer to the SOT for that day you use it. After NINE generations, it seems HTC only got it right once with battery life which was last year with the M8. It seems M9 has battery life from earlier Android and HTC devices which were awful. Bad habits are hard to break.
Htc one m8 have great battery life and m9 should have even better battery for sure
Alien, 16 Mar 2015Things a phone in 2015 should have to be HIGH END: - SD Card (you brake ur phone, say good ... moreyou're talking nonsense you rather make your own phone. whose crying about battery on m8? I'm using m8
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2015Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset may have been found to run cooler than the 801 in some parts... moreNumerous sites have also tested it and found no such problem.. So take the overheating issue with a pinch of salt.. Also it's impossible for htc to overlook this.. This chipset must have been tested by htc itself only...
All thw stuff about the snapdragon 810 overheating is a load of fud. The claims have been debunked so for all the people hoping to get the m9 like me just ignore the claims cause there just fake
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset may have been found to run cooler than the 801 in some parts, but it looks like it may be leading to some overheating issues after all. Specifically, we're talking about the HTC One M9, which employs the Snapdragon 810 SoC.
A Dutch website has tested how hot the handset gets while running the GFXBench benchmark, and then compared what it found to a few other high-end devices: the iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One (M8), LG G3, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Update: HTC's online communications chief Jeff Gordon tweeted that the software of One M9 is not finished yet. Therefore, any benchmarks from the device have been published "illicitly."
