k, 16 Feb 2016True, but Mediatek puts many people off.This is the high end chipset which can compare with snapdragon 810. The benchmarks of both chipset is very close. Also SD810 has heating issue, that's why many manufacturing company uses mediatek chipset. Mediatek Helios X series is the good performer. No doubt. You can use any device by this chipset, then provide your feedback.
I bought it from china and swear that x9 is one of the best in market and runs every app and game very fast. screen,sound,touch and camera are awesome and the headphone are great.also battery with full usage will stand a day and dedicates you about 20% at night. it's my first htc and changes my opinion,i had xperia c4 but x9 is far better.take my word and go for x9 with no doubt
k, 16 Feb 2016True, but Mediatek puts many people off.You are one of the very few people in the world who knows that there's snapdragon processors and mediatek
i really find it funny how people have this pathological need to assert that their chosen brand is "zomfg the best thing that's ever happened!"
take your insecurities and shove them up some other place where nobody but your parents can see.

HTC is a nice phone and it would all ways be the best and it is very strong cause you can throw it any where and it would not mash up. an is very popular

I play lots of intense 3D games, which is why i AVOID phones with weak GPUs and chipset overall. The PowerVR G6200 is great, but the price of this phone with these specs is just bit too high.
HTC is becoming like Apple...pricing their phones higher than it should be. If this phone was cost around 250 euros then maybe i will consider it. The Xiaomi Redmi note 3 like i said, is a "budget phone but with premium quality build and high-end specs" and it only cost around 180 euros, which is a steal imo at that price and specs. I used to be a fan of HTC, but now, not anymore when theres too many better products out there

Specs do not tell anything about a device . HTC was an awesome brand and will remain the same . I bet that the exterior will be better than most of the similar priced ones. I have a desire 816 . It rocks a snap 400 soc but performs gorgeous . Cheaper alternatives would never be a preference to an experienced user
the real midrange with the best specs for the price.great battery capacity for fhd display and camera should be like the great A9
I think this is the best HTC phone after M7 & M8... Can't wait to see its battery & camera performance... review please!!!
when it is coming to india...it was showcased at MWC 2016 still no sign of availability....does this phone has led indicator, OTG support....anyone......

The specs are great, but the asking price is PRETTY steep especially when there are cheaper options available. For instance, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (mediatek version) has the same specs but better battery, a fingerprint reader and only cost about 1/3 of the price of this phone....
The Meizu m1 Metal is even cheaper than both the xiaomi and this HTC X9....I have nothing against HTC but theres just better options out there.
This is HTC ...now I think HTC find right way
Very great great phone in this range
