Ppl bluffing abt resolutions when they cant even distinguish between 2k and 1080p on 5inches with naked eye. Though i admit that s6/edge camera is far better than m9 but when u posted on social sites, resolution went down, also pic quality. m9 is super fast and in daily usage s6/edge, m9,g4 they are all the same.
How many of you print out your photos? The 4MP sensor is fine for 6x4 inch prints.. 99 % of photos go to social networks and seriously if you are into photography you are not going to buy a mobile phone are you?
Quad HD screens are just a bullet point waste of materials,battery and GPU power.
5 inch screen is absolutely most folks limit .
A lot of folk on gsmarena get carried away instead of stepping back and logically thinking. 8 megapixels is enough for A3 prints.Now someone will come back saying that we want to zoom into the picture etc but surely if photography is so important you buy a good DSLR.
Screen I would bet 100% none of you can tell the difference at 4k,2k and 1080p lcd display so that argument is null and void.
What for instance does the S6 do better than a Moto G? It will do things a bit quicker and take a better photo/video and that is it. It a sixth of the price.And new model has sd slot for cheap memory upgrade.
We keep jumping on these smartphones spending money when in reality the one you just had does the same thing. I do it as well but buying second hand and selling on for not much of a loss.
Now and again just step back and see the bigger picture,,Apple give all the crap about latest camera in their new iPhone 6 but go to gsmarena charts and check between 4s and 6 and there is no real difference,,in fact there is more contrast in some parts on 4s.
All this lovely jargon and hype but for what? At moment have 4s,htc m7,s3 and s5 and the most useful for me is htc m7. Super clear screen,top audio through headphones (boom sound another gimmick).good battery,does all android stuff it just lacks sd slot.
D, 04 May 2015Customers feedback wanted a high Megapixel camera, HTC listened with the M9 camera. Nothin... more"good pictures" compared to what? You don't want to accept that there are better cameras around. My S4 is far better than my friends M7 and the M8 uses the same camera. Perhaps in isolation it is good but when compared to others it doesn't stand a chance. It's a shame because that one factor will prevent me from buying an M9 when my contract is due. The camera on the S6 is simply the best at the moment.
Some times My htc M8 is charging it'self, After i disconnect the charger on it.
Plz help me😔

Here'sToChange, 30 Apr 2015hey "high-Hech Computers corparation" i saw "quantum dot" tech use for lg ... moreQuantum is just a name, is your eyes capable to see up to that dense of resolution on a 5 inch panel hahahha weird people...1080p is best enough on a 5 incher panel. But, remember, S-LCD3 is excellent display on par and even produces natural color than AMOLED...you just heard the name and you immediately craving for it...understand first and then make a good position to your argument...funny to think .
AnonD-115068, 06 May 2015From the one 's to m9 is definitely worth.. A whole lot of improvements.. Sense is 100x smooth... moreYeah, just wondering and some comments abt how m9 is bad makes me uneasy. That's why.
Please update the protection specs to include Corning Gorilla Glass 3, some models ship with v4 and some with v3. Sad but true.
AnonD-115068, 06 May 2015From the one 's to m9 is definitely worth.. A whole lot of improvements.. Sense is 100x smooth... moreI see, thz!! may be I hvnt use m7 or m8, thats why i dont understand why ppl blaming abt m9 design. :D

Is it worth to upgrade from HTC one S ( the very 1st gen of HTC one series ) to M9? i hvnt use m7 or m8. So sense 4+ vs 7, whole new design, 8MP vs 20MP, VGA front facing vs Ultra pixel, 4.3" vs 5", 1GB Vs 3GB ram, dual core 1.5GHz vs Octa core, etc. Does it worth? Any opinions?
Wow, HTC has really been a big disappointment lately.
When HTC released the One M7, they held nothing back.
I mean sure the camera was hit-and-miss (at the it was still passable), but with the M7 HTC immediately became the market leaders in areas like:
* Display quality
* Sound quality (external speakers + headphones)
* Build quality
* Design / style (which shamed even the iPhone)
* OS (Sense 5 was a MASSIVE upgrade)
Then they just added to that with great innovation, such as:
* Blinkfeed (which proved to be surprisingly useful), * Zoe (weird name, but really good feature)
* Slow motion video
* IR Remote Control functionality
* Optical Image Stabilisation
* Ultrapixel concept (poor resolution, but the speed and low light performance was excellent)
I was looking for a new phone at the time and couldn't decide what to get because every phone seemed to be good at one thing, bad at everything else. The M7 was great across the board - I bought it without even thinking.
In all the time that has since passed, HTC's products have all been a complete disappointment.
With the M8, HTC:
* Moved to a 5" screen, when the world was moving to 5.1" and 5.2" screens
* Kept the same low res 4-5 MP camera (when everybody else was up to the 12-20 MP)
* Kept the UI virtually unchanged, still limiting you to 5 home screens (when everybody else allowed 7)
* Updated the design to one that looked and felt bigger, heavier, chunkier and just plain uglier
With the exception of the standard hardware (CPU, GPU, RAM) upgrade, the only thing the new model really gained was a completely useless second 'depth of field' camera which nobody really cared about.
Every other company made major changes to their new devices, so HTC fell from the top of the back to the bottom in a hearbeat. Instead of making the upgrade, I went with an Xperia Z2, and never looked back.
Now with the M9, and HTC has done pretty much exactly the same thing. They have addressed the biggest criticism (camera) by upgrading to a higher MP unit which apparently is still extremely mediocre...the physical design is practically exactly the same and still a step back from the M7). The screen is pretty much the same. It's basically an M8 with a new camera, token hardware upgrades, and a tiny facelift.
It's a shame because I was biggest HTC fan (had nothing but HTC phones up until the M7 went obsolete) but with the major changes being made recently by LG (G4) and Samsung (Galaxy S6 Edge) and with an All-new Xperia Z5 supposedly due later this year (the Z4 from what I've read is basically just to hold people off until the Z5), HTC has really dropped the ball.
For me to consider the next HTC One (M10 I guess?) they are going to have to come back with at the very least:
* A significant screen upgrade (at least 5.2" and preferably Quad HD)
* Camera that is (in real world use) at least competitive with the Xperia Z2
* A new physical design that looks sleeker and less chunky
If they don't do all of the above, I think they are going to really struggle to maintain decent sales.
dks, 04 May 2015Guys I have been using my M8 for almost a year now fabulous phone I have used ever thinking to... moreDont upgrade based on the camera alone. Camera is not that great. Even with 20 MP, photos are Okish.It dDoes not justify moving from M8 to M9. M9 makes minor improvements in a few areas, but doesn’t deliver anything really new, nor dramatically better. The design is nearly identical, with a couple of nice refinements. The display is the same. The speakers are pretty much the same. There’s a new processor, but overall performance is about the same, and battery life is actually a little bit worse than M8.
