You will mostly regret after buying this phone its really frustrating even after update its heating problem is not fully solved its really not the phone you want unimpressive battery life the camera is good in good light but in low light its camera just sucks just totally sucks HTC should make speakers and water heaters rather than phones thumbs down HTC.
So, I bought this phone a week ago, and I'm pretty much satisfied.. The only down side of the phone for me is the battery life. It can last a day with normal usage (calls, txt, web surf here and there), but if you play too much heavy games, it won't last half a day. Maybe 3hours. Hopefully 6.0 Marshmallow update will bring us some battery life improvements, who knows. Other than that, the phone is simply fantastic, the design and feel in the hand, boomsound speakers with dolby audio is just amazing, UI is lag free it's so smooth and fast, camera is not the best, but not bad either (after 5.1 update), I rate it strong 8.5/10 (10/10 would probably be samsung, lumia phones, new iphone maybe), the pictures still look good detailed for an average user like me, so I'm not complaining. Also, the temperatures are not high at all as it used to be before 5.1, it has normal temperature while playing games, just as any other phone out there. And I like the cold feel of the body when I pick him after some inactivity. :P
Muchu, 30 Nov 2015You r correct i took this for 2050 riyal After two weeks 1500 am really upset Its prise comi... moreand if you are going to sell it and Qatarliving, i think u'll only get 1200Qrs for its value.. very bad phone. i had m8 before, quite nice but somehow lacking in service. m9 is worst, that y i opted to buy this phone.
leo, 01 Dec 2015Stop trolling !!! And don't say that HTC is the new blackberry ...why not? its my opinion. and its 80% true. read some articles about the losses of HTC before you tell me that im trolling..
Josephlai, 23 Nov 2015Does this phone heat? How about the battery life and the camera?After updating to 5.1 and wiping the cache, it doesn't heat most of the time. Battery lasts for 1 day in normal usage, not gaming. This phone is not for heavy gamer and photo shooters. Small games can be played. Camera quality is average. Although 20MP, but photos looks like a 8MP camera. Speaker quality is the best among all phones. Very clear and stereo surround sound effects.
I bought this phone yesterday here in Riyadh, then installed all the updates from 5.0.2 to 5.1. And then i wiped the cache and factory reset the phone. It is a very good phone. Running cool now. On 5.0.2, it was hot like a cup of coffee. But after updating to 5.1, It is cool most of the time. But gets little warm when playing Asphalt 8 or heavy games. I checked battery temperature and it is 42 degrees celsius, room temperature was 33 degrees.
This particular phone is garbage !!!!!@
All kinds of problems .....volume control is wacky,speakers go bad after a while, gets slow and laggy after a month or so,I have to manually shut down and clean ALL programs EVERY time (or continuously runs my data)..etc.
Going back to IPHONE!!!
Alexander mumtaz, 29 Nov 2015no brother, its being confirmed from gorilla glass website, M9 plus doesn't have even gorilla ... morefor sure you have not touched m9,m9+ or any htc flagships.and you are other brands fan.all flagships have gorilla glass.... this site is Samsung&apple fan(and 1-2 other). there are many signs if you want I can show you.all sites are charged with Samsung/apple or.... so thanks for your great joke about htc flagships those have no gorilla glass.
hallo guys. i want to know about this phone. i see in the online shop that this phone (m9) have 64gb rom version is it true of htc one m9 or the fake one. because gsmarena only listing the 32gb rom version. thanks in advanced.
Here my experience with HTC m9.
Using this phone for the last one month
and become a fan of this beauty.
Build quality - great.. eye catching design with unique metal body.I love it.
Handling - you can simply operate m9 with single hand.even it is pocket friendly.
Display - 5 inch display does every thing.viewing angles, clarity ..couldn't find a mistake.some people are saying not so good as galaxy S6.but trust me you will never dissapointed with m9 display.
Speakers - nothing to say much.. none of the smart phones can beat the audio quality. superb..superb.. superb..
Call quality - great
Camera - here I have to say something..
Main camera : even the main camera is 20mp, u can't take a better picture in certain lighting conditions. But there are lot of manual adjustments in the camera settings,with the help of that u can take good quality pictures. Pictures taken in good lighting conditions are awesome and good for macro photography.
videos(full HD) taken with m9 are just awesome. I have taken some cute videos of my little daughter and they are lovely.
Front camera: 4mp ultra pixel gives you better quality selfies than any other phone.
battery - Mm.. this is the area where I got disappointed.. it will last hardly one day for moderate usage.am not a heavy gamer ,but browsing 2-3 hours,hearing music 1-2 hours,making 2-3 hour calling,1 hour watching videos on a daily basis and am getting hardly one day back up.
Heating : m9 heating a little bit during streaming..but not much. I think every smart phone having this issue.
If you want an android phone with great build quality ,lightning speed and audio/video play back..then go for it. Camera is good but the competiters may have better ones.
Tahir Afzal, 30 Nov 2015I like to buy this phone.. Can HTC M9 users/Lovers answer my quick questions :-)
1. Is Ir B... more1. IR blaster works perfectly with my M9. Just remember to point directly at your TV.
2. I haven't used Ultra Power Saving Mode a lot, but it only extends my battery life up to 2x.
3. I haven't used the LG G3 before, but since the M9 is newer than the G3, I am sure it is a lot better, especially in good daylight.
I like to buy this phone.. Can HTC M9 users/Lovers answer my quick questions :-)
1. Is Ir Blaster working fine for every device..
2. how much time extended in Ultra Power saving mood
3. how is Camera quality as compared to LG G3 in DayLight.. i am disappointed with the camera of LG G3 even iphone 4s camera quality is fine than LG G3.
Thanks in advance :-)

Alexander mumtaz, 29 Nov 2015no brother, its being confirmed from gorilla glass website, M9 plus doesn't have even gorilla ... moreHTC One M9 has gorilla glass
moji jon, 23 Nov 2015i have this phone and on the box there is ....so im sorry i dont know why gsmarena dont men... moreno brother, its being confirmed from gorilla glass website, M9 plus doesn't have even gorilla glass, and htc one ME too. go to the site of gorilla glass and under htc devices,
Hey guys I'm using the m9 for over a week and I think its the most beautiful looking phone of 2015 but it gets heated up very quickly the main reason for that is Snapdragon 810 chipset and the fully metal unibody but its fast and gaming is good the front camera is excellent compared it with iphone 6 but its back camera disappointed me although being 20.7 mega pixel not fully satisfied compared to its price but its speakers and sound quality cannot be matched by any other mobile company.
Guys, hows your battery life going on, does it drain too fast? I just bought today M9 updated to 5.1 lolipop, but somewhat battery drains fast, and I dont even play games or surft the internet.. just playing around with options, and it drains 1% every 5-10min. , is that normal?
