chshahid2k, 12 Jun 2015For those who are saying m8 and m9 are not symmetrical due to the bezel sizes, I ask them one ... moreIt's not the bezels,The asymmetrical speaker grills are the ones that make htc dual speaker phones ugly.The top speaker grill is almost to one corner while the bottom one is larger in M8 and M9,though it is perfectly centered on the bezel.In htc One Me and M9 plus as you can see the single grill to the corner on the top and the small two grills on the bottom and the fingerprint sensor is a mismatch in terms of aesthetics.Also the sound out put level may not be balanced well because of the difference in the grill sizes despite the adjustments in the sound chip. Htc M7 and One Max were the best looking dual speaker phones of htc as they they had equal sized speaker grills that were centered on the top and bottom bezels. The only flaw was that the bottom bezel with that htc logo was a little larger than top bezel where it lost symmetry. It looks like htc couldn't follow that pattern in their latest phones beacause of space limitations in circuit boards. Samsung devices cannot be compared as they are uglier than htc phones
For those who are saying m8 and m9 are not symmetrical due to the bezel sizes, I ask them one question, how u guys see samsung note edge or note 4 edge, which has only one sided edge unlike s6. Do u also call it imbalance or asymmetrical?
ojoy, 10 Jun 2015why can't htc put higher front camera to thier gadgets? Excuse me, ever heard of htc desire eye, it has a 13mp xam on front and other manufacturers are now copying this feature
This phone is perfect I wish m9+ have this cpu

That is exactly what we call obsessive compulsiv... moreOCD! not at all.A woman who has irregular eyes,ears or cheek bones who otherwise has perfectly shaped body cannot be considered beautiful.If so there is no meaning in saying something is beautiful.Have one more look at M8,M9 and this One Me.The speaker grill on the top bezel is toward one corner in all of them and in M8 and M9 the bottom speaker grill is much larger though perfectly centered on the bottom bezel. There may not be anything in this world with such an awkward design especially in the form of stereo/dual speakers. The sound may not be balanced on both grills since the difference in size may have an effect on the output level even if it is adjusted in the amplifier circuit
Lena, 10 Jun 2015Asymmetry means ugliness.The front speaker grills should be of the same size. The top and bott... moreYeah, sure. You sound so smart right now.-_-. That is exactly what we call obsessive compulsive disorder. Can't help it when seeing something imperfect huh? Irregular design are gaining attention these day. People want to see something more unique rather than monotonous design.
htc can not make anymore design better than this typical look. its boring to see the same corners and ideas. wake up htc.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2015Wonder why some hate this. I like the assymetrical design on the front. The led flash on front... moreAsymmetry means ugliness.The front speaker grills should be of the same size. The top and bottom bezels should also be of the same size.Then the screen will be exactly in the center of the phone flanked by two symmetrical speakers at equadistance on both sides of the screen. That's what you call beauty. Htc E9 and E9+ have equal sized speakers though the bottom bezel is a little larger than the top bezel. HTC m8 may have premium built and finish but the top speaker grill is not just smaller than the bottom speaker grill but also is placed to one side of the top bezel with front cam and other sensors on the other side that makes it ugly. M7 has same size speaker grills on the top and bottom they did it by placing the front cam on one side and the other sensors on the other side on the top bezel with a speaker grill in between which is the same size as the speaker grill on the bottom bezel.htc butterfly S and butterfly 2 also have equal sized speakers and bezels. M9 and M9+ are the other ugliest phones of htc because of the asymmetrical speakers.
Seriously!!?,already an upgrade to the flagship within 3 months? I bought my M9 a month back and it already feels outdated.
I'm a big HTC fan. And been loyal for 8 years.
but, this very moment, I feel like I just been bummmed. Bought my M9 in April and they announced this phone so early. Why not give the choices to start with?
This is why they trailing behind. They have a shit marketing department.
