I suppose it will all come down to pricing as to whether or not this phone sells in the numbers that HTC need it too. Does anyone else think the gold and two tone silver phones look hideous? Gunmetal grey for me !
The M7 was good that the buttons were not on the screen. The M8 got rid of the buttons on the phone and used the "on screen" buttons, which i have no problems with. But they did not take advantage of the extra space that was created. I hoped to see the M9 correct that with either: A larger screen to cover the empty space. Or a smaller phone. I do not like my phone having a bigger chin than Jay Leno.

snapdragon 810 in itself doesn't mean power and performance.
QHD makes a difference in terms of saturation of color is concerned on even 5 incher screen.
Still HTC needs to dive deep into more finer details if they wanted to consolidate on m7 and 8 in 9
such as less latency DDR4 RAM, higher nits brightness, more internal memory, more tweaking of color reproduction algorithm.
Don't get me wrong I have been HTC fan from the days of XDA by O2 UK. I am also evanglalist for hardware and software products by Symantec, Microsoft....

I thought HTC is coming with a revolutionary design...But M9 is mostly similar to it's early brother M8...And no impressing features either...Leaks about M9's design were true...But Samsung has upgraded not quite but very good in terms of design and features...I like the S6 Edge than S6...I like HTC very much...But this time I am really disappointed...
Really cant wait to get my hands on this device.
I hope that the camera performance is good because for me camera is a crucial part of a smartphone. Along with sound. Along with a good design. Htc fits all my needs and I shall wait for reviews and do some research before buying this.
Besides that the m8 was good too except for the camera. I did not get the opportunity to test it thoroughly but if this device is out of my budget I might go for the m8

what matters is the performance/improvements, period!
I dont know why many guyz here have this fuss! About HTC M9 being a dissapointment! Believe me i had the same negative perseption. But after going through youtube and watching different hands-on review i really changed the bad perseption, this powerhouse is just amazing! Am sure the day most of the people will have this beauty in their own hands! You will really love it...... And feel the difference from M8 Cant wait wait to feel it in my hands!!
haters gonna hate let it be no issues m not taking side of HTC i jus trust HTC coz they make quality products with good premium feel and decent technology.
Exact the Same as M8 huge disappointment...and again the same mistakes huge screen bezel, no UHD, no fingerprint sensor, useless speakers etc..
everyone always talk about iphones looks the same every year but i swear all of htc ones r the bloody same
Coming out with side products like Grip & Vive made HTC lost their focus on M9... & this made many of the supporters disappointed... i'm one of them... sad...
i never buy this thing if the bezel like that
just remove the htc logo, n remove the black screen
for my opinion
just put the htc logo to the below spekear
make the "htc" dot , so the speaker come out from the logo of htc, not just horizontal like that

I really like HTC phones and this is no exception. Although i have to say i am heading towards Samsung because they blew me away with the S6. I have a LG G3 at the moment so hopefully LG can win me over with the G4.
