I am not blown away by the new m9...its nice and all... But nothing revolutionary... Heck...lollipop on my m7 brought a little life back into the m7... Still the point is the m9 didn't impress,.. Maybe once I see an in store live model things may change... But from what I've seen... Not going to purchase for full retail
Personal experience, HTC M7 Instore exchange rate are higher then 75%, M8 was better, but still close to 55%. And 20MP camera did make me feel big gun as well, Sony already release that stuff long ago. And only 1080 x 1920 pixels (~441 ppi pixel density).... go home
M9 vs S6
ips lcd vs amoled
Gorilla glass 4 vs Gorilla glass 4
All metal vs metal frame only
snapdragon 810 vs Exynos 7420
Card slot vs no card slot
3gb ddr4 ram vs 3gb ddr4 ram
20mp vs 16mp
Ultrapixel front vs 5mp front
Lion 2550 mAH vs Lipo 2840 mAH
Wich one is better?
Hmmm, just double the Battery size and add some Optical Image stabilization and make it waterproof and Samsung can go Home. :D
Seriously? You just called a 20 mpx camera WEAK? :) No bro, not this time. Maybe M8 and M7 had that weak camera, that's acceptable. But this one, no.
Sticker, 13 Mar 2015Youre just like one of them who is not tired in complaining about the bezels and yet you dont ... moreI too have noticed an incessant obsession with bezels and speakers. I am sure that HTC has done all that it can to make the phone as efficient as possible without compromise. This thing about the bezels, bar, and speaker placement is growing tired. It really does not matter as to the performance of the phone. I am sure the engineering is quite complex and if they could have changed it efficiently without compromising the features on the phone, they would have. As you said, those who comment have no earthly idea of the reasons behind HTC's engineering decisions.
AnonD-237195, 13 Mar 2015Brilliant phone with weak camera...!20MP back camera, weak! who needs 100MP camera?

i am sure of that
anyway, M8 owners will not find that much to make the change to the M9
maybe M7 owners will, but not all of them
M9 owners will mostly be coming from other OEMs or new comers to the android world, like me. I came from the damn Samsung :D

well for me that is a massive upgrade from my Exynos 4412 S3
o just got bored from it and smashed that old laggy phone really hard
after comparing both hands-on of the galaxy S6 and the Htc M9, i like Htc Sense 7 more
it is blazing fast
and more usable IMO
as for the S810 thing, i think that this chip IS good. And maybe the slightly lower than expected benchmarks in some areas is due to unfinalised software not more.
Plus, i don't think i need more power than that on a FHD phone.
BoomSound just got more awesome
Camera is OK for me. I don't snap photos that much
This is most probably my next device :) and i am happy to say that
No matter how the galaxy S6 edges it out in benchmarks, i guess that both devices will be both excellent for real life usage. S810 has enough power to drive you with your phone safely like the Exynos 7420, specially that HTC M9 metal structure dissipates the extra heat from the phone, if it is present.
So, this phone is my next one. I learnt never to buy a Sammy product with its homemade exynos again, by hard.
HTC M9, i am sold out for you!!!
Even though in the Camera Specification of LG G3 is lesser than HTC ONE M9, LG G3 will be always better option to HTC ONE M9 as it possess with 2.5 Ghz processor which is indeed ultimate feature in the smartphone arena.
Everything is just awesome, such fab spec, 2K display would have created icing on this cake..
It's beautiful I was gonna buy one but SG6 really changed me. We'll see. SG5 Owner :)

I was looking forward to the S6 but the lack of sd is a deal-breaker. I'm now looking for an alternative. .
