After 1.5years of use, I have a mixed opinion about the M9. At times it felt like the best phone I ever had and at other times it was the most frustrating phone. Let's start with the positives:
-Great build quality; feels great and fell down a lot and nothing happened
-Still very fast
-Decent camera (There are better ones)
-The screen is good
-Sense 7 is okay,but I don't like the Brightnessbutton in the quick-settings
-Lately I used it with Nova and it didn't affect the battery life and performance
-Can heat up for no reason (battery drain), even during standby
-Rather poor battery life (When new 13-14hours and now 8-11hours- with almost no gaming)
-A lot of system crashes causing some settings to reset--> really enoying
-Some times shuts down imediately when battery under 15%
-HTC's updates where poor; there were more bugs than before
-Example: My Wifi keeps on disconnecting every 2 minutes for a couple of seconds after I updated it to 6.0. Half a year later still no update to fix it
-Between 5.1 and 6.0 HTC disabled the vibration when in power-saving mode
-The power-saving mode reduces the brightness a lot
-The speakers aren't very loud and seem to get worse after some time
-There are apps like YouTube with extreme power consumption (My previous phones didn't have that)
All in all the M9 ages pretty poorly in my opinion and I'm looking forward to replace it soon.
He guys I desperately wanna buy an Android phone that does not heat. Which phone can u guy propose to me.
One of the worst phones of 2015. First of all this phones heats up a lot. The performance is not on par with the specifications. Camera is shaky.
The only good thing about this phone was the speakers
I am using this phone for 4 months now , first its camera does not adjust itself to the light and it captures shaky photos.
Second its battery dry up so fast
3rd it has a poor protection system for the viruses.
4th applications do hang most of time which is so boooring
Last and most important, the overheat, simple applications like reminding ones can make the phone so hot that is a Scary thing ..
My god :(
I have loaded this phone with more than 60apps, games, movies, songs, photos and much more. To my wonder this phone works like a charm no slowing down. It does heat up rarely but its nothing serious as it cools down shortly and i keep on using it without any glitch. This is my first favourite android phone. Its body feels premium touch i like the feel its bit slippery and often falls from my hands but their is no defect yet.I have ordered Htc dot view cove to keep it safe. Excited for it, waiting its delivery. I will keep using this phone and even it breaks down the next phone could be htc 10.
Bought this phone 4 month ago, now it wont charge for the last two days yet I'm using the original charger. Tried different USB cables but it won't charge
One thing i love about my M9, during winter it wont overheat during winter and run a few heavy apps u got urself a hand warmer, and during the summer, i just take it out of its case and the aluminium back does its thing. Or i sometimes chuck it in the fridge.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2016HTC's are awesome, and the best part they don't blow up!You right they don't blow up (sad joke) you know what's even sadder HTC Sales financial results
The good thing with metal devices is that they don't overheat during winter.

Montero , 19 Oct 2016Yes it is. 4g LTE M9 is 4G/LTE capable phone. But it depends on the area. Check the availability of the signal in your area.
