Don't forget HTC sense, high grade aluminum-build, stereo speakers, boomsound + dolby audio, brand, gorilla glass, sapphire lens cover, improved camera, high quality mic, software and OS update or support adds up to the price tag. Other components are just okay or optimised for daily use. This is not a gaming device that needs the latest processor or having more RAM. This is a device that offers a well rounded performance for different tasks. Other companies don't offer updates or provide quality product that is why I think they are more cheaper despite of the components they used which is "better" than HTC uses.
It'd be better SD625 than X10. Both have roughly the same performance, but SD625 is more battery-friendly (14nm fabrication process) and I'm sure it's not expensive.

Lead2XL, 27 Apr 2016Who would buy the HTC One S9 which is 158 grams and 10mm thick with such a feeble battery, not... moreexactly....there are many better phones in the market for the price and even provide better performance than this phone...
really bad design... they should keep up the 10 or A9 design! disappointed.
Why do they purposely make huge bezels.
Plus, it's 10mm thick but has just a 2.8k mAh battery.
Ad the huuuge price tag and - not that it's attractive - it's a horrible choice.
I'm a htc fan, but this product is just not what I would buy.
Why do I comment here? Because I don't want htc to go back a few steps backwards after the amazing 10
This phone design will not help HTC go grow in this competitive market.
And this is rat race for sure to see every body apping galaxy now, comm'on guys be creative with those brains almighty gave you!
Who would buy the HTC One S9 which is 158 grams and 10mm thick with such a feeble battery, not to mention the battery-draining Helio X10 processor? You could have the Xiaomi Redmi 3 instead, same 5 inch display, only 144 grams and with a 4100 mAh battery - this phone has a much bigger battery but is still lighter than the S9! Also, according to GSM Arena's battery life list, the Redmi 3 is near the top of the list for battery life - it is no brainer.
