If a smartphone containing 2k display provide u 6/7 hour screen on time whats wrong in it !!! Good battery backup is one of the motto of smartphone.But people dnt buy smartphone just for it...If there is no need of 2k pixel handset than smartphone manufacterer i.e samsung,sony,LG wouldn't make it. They make it what we demand ....HTC will also make 2k/4k display later.But matter is that if HTC make FHD,HD Display u say wah,wah when they will make 2k,4k u will also say that.what they make everytging right to some people...
AnonD-331864, 23 Dec 2014You did ignore the new 3d imaging trend that requires double amount of pixels. A screen with t... moreWell if the imaging is indeed 3D, like Sense 3, would it not acquire more power on top of the power that the bigger resolution draws also i don't wear skinny jeans & i would love if they increased the battery instead of making it thin.
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2014If there is no need of 2k/4k display than there is no need of snapdragon 810.Thats totally rub... moreWhy not just take a 5" SD810 phone with 25% more speed, 50 % better gpu performance & better battery life aswell... I really can't see why anyone would want a 2k or even 4k display when there are little to no gains compared to FHD on such a small screen. & BTW i prefer 5"
I am big iPhone fan but I must say: HTC is doing well with the M series .. I have M8 and it is excellent phone but seems like M9 won't be big upgrade! lets wait and see..!!
why HTC co use such these batteties for its phones.are not so weak for these ppi, cup,lcd inches?
AnonD-72853, 25 Dec 2014There's no need of QHD, let alone UHD on smartphones around this size. These kinds of display ... moreif this is like that than 720P will be more further better as u guys mean 2k display mean nothing :D.so what will be bad if htc make 720p display with 5 inch with SD 810.it will increase more & more backup .haha.okay???Alternately they can make 4"5/4"7 inch( lyk sony z3C compact or Galaxy alpha )with SD 810 ,720p display. And Bezel is not thin at all.while note 4 only 8.5 mm with 5"7 inch it is 5 inch only but thickness is 9.5 mm
The M9 must have a 5.2QHD display with 565ppi density with a fingerprint scanner and water resistant protection.
[deleted post]There's no need of QHD, let alone UHD on smartphones around this size. These kinds of display not only worsen the performance, but they suck the battery like a vampire as well. In order to compensate the battery life, the smartphone needs a bigger battery, which in turn makes the smartphone bigger, and thicker. You don't want a 15mm thick phone, do you?
Besides, what's the point of having a ridiculous amount of pixels in a 5"-5.5" display? You're unlikely to benefit from the pixel density unless you regularly watch the screen at an extremely close distance.*
You might say that S810 will compensate for the performance loss. Well, to be honest you might be true. But why not utilise the beastly S810 with the humble FHD for much much better performance, with virtually 0 lags at all.
Looks like I've given the points necessary to counter your statement. Therefore, I will not response to any further arguments. Period.

AnonD-90736, 25 Dec 20145" inch yet again another complete fail, should be around 6.5" with these specs and ... moreHa ha ha.. 6.5" ?? Max size of a phone should not exceed 5 inches for one handed use.
[deleted post]To have a 2K screen on your phone is more than usseles ! But some gimmick lovers like you wan't 4K screens on a phone ! The batterys today can barly take you 1 day with heavy use on 1080p and less than one day with 2K screens and you wan't 4K ... I can understand some people , let's ask for all the usseles things possible on a phone ...
AnonD-344642, 24 Dec 2014According to me all these companies like Samsung ,HTC, apple, Sony are just thinking of profit... moreThat's because Xaiomi doesn't pay royalty fees or have an R&D or advertising budget. Once they step on western soil, if they will ever be allowed to. They might just flop. Secondly they will be hit by a million of infringing patents.
Companies like Apple, HTC, Sony and Samsung have brand presence and after sales support. Lets see how "Consumer friendly" your xaiomi is when your cheap phone breaks down.
AnonD-76365, 24 Dec 2014Good move by opting for 1080 screen. 2k is only to make people fool. I don't feel any differen... moreIf there is no need of 2k/4k display than there is no need of snapdragon 810.Thats totally rubbish idea where SD810 is made for handling 4k display seamlessly u cnt provide even 2k display.ok fine.if people still happy with FHD 1080p of 2013 technology than they should also be happy with SD800/801.....No need of SD810!!! SD 800/801 more than enough for 5 inch 1080p display
Its great device but this model need to increase the inshes to 5.5 or 5.8
and the reasolition become 4k
The screen should be 4K not FHD, the screen also should be 5.5 or 6 inch
rest of specs are great
snapdragon 810 with 1080p?? omg this will be super super fast
i will buy this for sure O.o
5" inch yet again another complete fail, should be around 6.5" with these specs and I would definitely buy it. The s810 chip is completely wasted on this tiny baby device, HTC needs to wake up otherwise it will continue to make losses.
