It means ok. Go and change battery
i owned second hand One m9 gold with v6.0 within this january and it is still the beast!! For me is does not matter if it is Marsh or Nougat, the performance in every section is wonderful. One opinion - the camera quality actually is good enough even better. I can not get why some people say the camera is not ok. Actually we have to understand that we use smart phone not a professional camera and if we want perfect pics i offer you buy camera not phone. And by the way i accept samsung and some models camera performances may be a little bit high but this dont mean that M9 stands lower. In a result if anyone has some doubts i say go for it.

Magna Luville , 10 Jan 2017Hey guys, do you have an idea if there's really 64gb version of Htc m9, Is this legit or fake ... moreIts original. I have the 64 gb version. It is a Taiwan market exclusive, take it man its a beast.
The worst customer service I ever dealt with. They simply do not care.
Took 2 weeks to get a replacement for my HTC 10. Phone was purchased directly from HTC website, factory unlocked. It literally died in less than 5 months. Just would not turn on. Tried everything there is to try. Failure was on a board level.
Contacted HTC customer service. They did not care. The attitude was - oh well, you want replacement you will have to wait. You are not the only one. Simpy rude, incompetent people. After a week of communication, reps would just hang up on me once they looked into a file.
And at the end I received DEFECTIVE replacement. How bad is that?
First of all sorry for my english!
Ok, I have a rule not to spend more than 200 euros for the phone, so i found this phone for this price (new in the box), my previous phone was blackberry passport, an amazing machine by the way but it was a lack with software updates. First impressions about the M9 were just good but a few days ago i recived nougat update and i want to say: oh my god! the phone become amazing, no overheating, no battery drain without any reason and yes the camera also is improved (but for the camera, update will come after the android update is installed) so very very good job HTC!
You all have a nice life!
DesertLoaner, 18 Jan 2017I bought the M9 new from China to USA. Seller said Hong Kong but the package was shipped from... morewhere or who did you order it from?? i want to get a new desire eye or butterfly 2
Turned off location services, weather, uninstalled bulky apps, turned off every unnecessary application and set to GSM mode. On full charge after 5 minutes of use phone goes from 100% to 89%. After about 30 minutes of use phone is around 60% BATTERY. Very bad battery!
This phone has SD810 which is infamous for overheating. Can anyone share its experience? has the problem been resolved from the update or does it still persists?
I bought the M9 new from China to USA. Seller said Hong Kong but the package was shipped from Singapore. Never mind where it came from, it was indeed brand new which I'm really happy about. I saw many sellers offering the same in USA but I believe most of them are refurbished phones coming from any of the american carriers. So, I took my chances and order it from an overseas seller manufacturer unlocked, expecting that it should be brand new and without any of the bloatware that populate the phones from american carriers and no significant difference in price. For a phone that is almost two generations old, it's a very good one. Tell you the truth, I'm impressed, brand new phone unlocked, no bloatware, free of tricks to make you pay more like to use wi-fi hotspot or tethering. It came with Android 5.0 right out the box, turned it on and immediately upgraded to Android 6.0 and surprise, surprise, two days later upgraded to Android 7.0 what else you want to ask for. I made sure the phone specs matched my carrier network and it works without flaws on LTE. Everyone knows this phone specs, so don't want to be repetitive. To me strong points are processing power, excellent audio and reasonable battery life. No phone is perfect and this one weaker points are the camera and the screen when compared to Samsung and iPhone. Overall very happy with this purchase.
