AnonD-76365, 24 Dec 2014Good move by opting for 1080 screen. 2k is only to make people fool. I don't feel any differen... moreAbsolutely correct: QHD only barely begins to make sense at 5.5 inch screens, probably closer to 6 inch, and even then most people would have to struggle to notice the difference even if they looked closely. But at 5 inches, you are better off with the superior battery life and faster screen refresh you get with FHD. Well done HTC!
Good move by opting for 1080 screen. 2k is only to make people fool. I don't feel any difference in fhd and qhd screen on a mobile device, yes you can feel the difference on a bigger screen like desktop or LED and LCD, but why we require 2k resolution in our phones fhd looks spectacular, iPhone 6 plus is only fhd however it's one of the best screen available in market, 2k resolution kills the actual graphics potential of our mobile devices. And those who need 2k screens are dumbo people.
Dnt know why they are still lagging behind with 1080p display where samsung already given 2k display & planning to release 4k in note 5.....
AnonD-344600, 23 Dec 2014@S.BBOU ihave the original htc one (or m7)with 469ppi i`m sure that is not a good idea to im... moreU know why I'd love HTC to do that because I've got an m8 gunmetal gray and it's better than s5 n 5s,hardware and software,but it's the matter is only camera in 4 ultra p. I used to fall in water with it,but it stayed work well. Stay in 5 inch is the most common side. Most people love it small n strong not big,hard to hold. Look at Apple 6 the 4.7 is the best selling one. I think HTC will make it thinner it's the best design to be the king of the sale in 2015. N just make 3 kinds of the smartphones n 1 tablet.
AnonD-344600, 23 Dec 2014i hope they got rid of those shitty(in my opinion)back/home/running apps buttons in the screen... moreIt's not about that, I think it is a Google Recommendation. All flagships, except S5 have onscreen buttons.
AnonD-48321, 23 Dec 2014Only 2800 Mah ... come onCome on you if you only think about numbers. HTC Desire proved that OS efficiency matters more than mAh number. And Lollipop + Snapdragon already uses less power. So it will be a great battery, as M8 already is.
Shanti, 23 Dec 2014Not sure if this is a stupid question, but will the M9 have stock Android installed? The original M9 no. But you can always root and install it. Or depending on your region, buy the Google Play Edition
AnonD-338238, 23 Dec 2014lol 5 inch & quad core with a 2840 mah battery....??? xDits actually octacore XD
According to me all these companies like Samsung ,HTC, apple, Sony are just thinking of profit nothing else ,they charge almost triple they spend on making their smart phones. But there are some companies who think of consumers also like xiaomi . there profit margin is literally meagure but their smart phones are much better than so called flagships like s6 etc. Their os is so innovative miui a lot better than shitty apple . their quality is also premium a lot lot better than shitty Samsung. I have been using xiaomi mi3 for the 6th month running and my experience is tremendous, I can't think of buying any other brand from now but xiaomi. I have used shiity s4 for 1 year whose experience I do not want to think again . I have used z1 its better than Samsung but xiaomi is a company all u guyz should take a look at. These innovative companies should also be given chance guyz they are worth the attention. According to me the best 2015 flagship is undoubtedly mi5 and I am pretty sure the cost of this smartphone will be just as any 2012 flagship of those just profit making companies
Shanti, 23 Dec 2014Not sure if this is a stupid question, but will the M9 have stock Android installed? You're right shanti, that is a stupid question. HTC Sense 7.0 is not stock android.
Shanti, 23 Dec 2014Not sure if this is a stupid question, but will the M9 have stock Android installed? nope..it will have htc customised os with sense 6.0 UI....but it could have a GPE in coming future...
The picture on here is not the M9. Some of these stats are way off.
The design is a lot more curvy also the boom speakers are integrated on to the top and bottom of the screen. The screen is 5.2". 18mega pixel duel camera with a 20.7mega pixel sensor. 4up front facing. Hardware specs seem correct. The M9 is smaller than the M8 with a bigger screen. Its still in testing they have been known to change their mind on design late on but these are as close to the final model that i can let out. There's a few good surprises. Over the next 6 weeks you'll get to know everything about the M9. As for sense 7 that holds the key but won't find any leaks as the testing devices are using 4.4.4 s6. If you can check my history out, I also listed the M8 specs earlier this year. I've got nothing to prove anyway, the proof will unfold in the next 6 weeks.
Shanti, 23 Dec 2014Not sure if this is a stupid question, but will the M9 have stock Android installed? Not a bad question at all - but has quite a simple answer: no.
It will run HTC Sense 7 on top of lollipop, HTC Sense is HTC's set of customizations. So it's not stock Android.
Guy Hero, 23 Dec 2014WTF man, your eyes can literally only see 300 ppi, unless you hold your phone an inch from you... moreYou did ignore the new 3d imaging trend that requires double amount of pixels. A screen with the resolution of 1080p wont be suitable for u if you are an avid fan of 3-dimensional movies and games. If you are not, then M9 will be a appropriate choise for you provided you can tolerate it's thickness that is 2mm ticker than other flagships.
