S6's hardware sure is better than M9's, I agree on that. Design is okay on both phones, nothing spectacular.
I'm not a Sammy fan, but i have to say the design looks good on the S6. Specs look great, but there's always a but... I don't really care the back doesn't come off, but not having an SD card and waterproof is a BIG BIG MINUS!!! They will probably release again 1000 versions of it, screwing their customers - proof they don't care about clients but profit..
On the other hand, M9 looks a lot better, had sd card, but still no waterproof.. :( is it that difficult to make it so?!
2015 is Sony's year.. sorry all u sammy or htc fans..

Was expecting USB 3.0, not the boring microUSB. I may just buy an old iphone for the connector, but those front facing speakers I cannot resist.

LG G3 was my first choice for my next phone after SGS4, but it wasn't in stores back then... A damn shame!
Dont see the point in being able to record in 2K when the main display is a mere 1080p. Completely pointless feature
bsanghani, 02 Mar 2015LG G3 which was voted best smartphone of 2014 still have got enough in it to be called best by... moreSo many difference sources names different phones as the phone of 2014. Some named the HTC M8 as the best smartphone of 2014.
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
shizzil, 02 Mar 2015everyone always talk about iphones looks the same every year but i swear all of htc ones r the... moreHTC looks are good enough, therefore why change it?
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!!
