Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016This type of phone would bankrupt HTC in the US market.You mean, this fone would bankrupt Samsung!
[deleted post]and look whats happening to HTC? since 2015; sales are dropping, losing customers and stuff. their sales will continue to go down if they keep over-pricing their phones. Fact: HTC sales were down by 35% last year.
HTC should fire the designer!! The bezel is unnecessarily wide at the bottom so that they can put the logo there. It could have been moved to the top. The same mistake is also on all the One Series smartphones.
Please need to stop with comparing to new phones, yes this is a recycle with different specs. The design looks fairly decent from what its replacing. The only real gripe i have on this is the price point. It should reflect a price acceptable to specs, the HTC m8 will probably be on par with this in terms of overall specs, yet this is close to $200 over it.
Barsylyk, 26 Apr 2016Look just how miserable most of you people are. Your comments are pathetic. Its f....ing obvio... moreI don't know about you. But most of us here are not going to pay 500 euros for a "recycled" device. 16gb ROM and 2GB RAM? You obviously are the one who does not know what they're talking about.
5.0 inches, 2gb ram only. 2840mah battery, not even the fastest mediatek chipset...and it cost 500 euros?? wtf HTC steep price
OMG, why do all HTC phones have so big bezels and so small battery capacity, they usually sacrifice it to copy Apple at 7mm thiness, but this one here is more than 1cm, thats just absurd...
IMHO the One X9 is better in many ways than this S9 and cheaper as well. Shame, X9 availability is still limited to a small number of regions.
spam One (x)9 series:
HTC M9+ Supreme Camera
what's next HTC ?
Barsylyk, 26 Apr 2016Look just how miserable most of you people are. Your comments are pathetic. Its f....ing obvio... moreI get your point but why not just buy an M9, there won't be much difference in price by the time it's released. Carriers in the UK have slashed M9 prices since the htc 10 was announced.
Too much high price. Budget phone means 200-250-300 EUR, not 500 EUR.
Paddyman, 26 Apr 2016I'm confused, is this phone better than M9? If not, why not just upgrade the a9 so the specs m... moreI'm confused too. Why is anyone going to buy this over an M9? Is it the camera?
Look just how miserable most of you people are. Your comments are pathetic. Its f....ing obvious its htc m9 chassie. Only changed the front. Look at sensor place, mic place down blow and compare them to original M9. . They just recycled M9. Exactly like iPhone SE. So its a nice move.See? You people dont even think before say the word. Shame shame
Helio x10.. Hahaha..what a joke. 599 dollars? Haha.. Pl don't release in India, NO TAKERS
This phone is not going to sell well in any market in the world.
1st, that tiny screen-to-body ratio. I mean look at the bottom front. It's huge. Haven't they learned from the past?
2nd, battery is so small despite the thick design. I don't mind a thick phone if there's a huge battery inside. Cmon HTC with phone this thick you could at least fit a 3300mah battery inside it.
3rd, there's no fingerprint. Fingerprint is not just a gimmick now. 2015, maybe. You can get a phone half this price with a fingerprint on it.
4th, the price. That price is too high despite all the deal breakers above.
Maybe this is a marketing strategy for the new HTC 10 so that htc fans who would want to buy an alternative and maybe more affordable rather than the pricey HTC 10 by giving them no choice but to opt to HTC 10? Cuz, I mean, compare the price and specs of the One S9. Totally not worth it.
*sorry if there's a mistake in the paragraph above. I get a little mixed up while making the sentences.
I'm confused, is this phone better than M9? If not, why not just upgrade the a9 so the specs match the price tag. I really like htc designs but their business model is a mess. Htc must be a credible alternative to Samsung and Apple or they will be overwhelmed by Chinese manufacturers who are who are improving every year.
First... the triple bottom is such a bad design， why go back to it. Second, when can HTC make their phone slim as other companies. Third, sorta high price tag with this very basic 2-3 year old spec, what the hell were u thinking? HTC won't raise if this phone is gonna be like this.
