I.scorp, 27 Jan 2016what? review? for htc? no brother!!!!!!! most of htc phones have no review and gsm doesn't lik... moreAnd when they do an HTC gadget review, they hardly update it.
Case in point, One M9 camera part.
It recieved several firmware updates, but GSMA have yet to update their review.
Hope the situation can improve thought
iSerkanS, 28 Jan 2016In general speaking about Htc smartphones. It's a good and solid mobile, the specs are great, ... morehtc reduces x9 size in compare to other 5.5". most of htcs 5.5" were 157mm but x9 is 153mm.also htc can does more reduction and next gen can be 150mm at least. (look at x9 top and bottom,could be more caompact and push camera,htc logo and sensors in one line.you are right)
over all x9 is one of the best upper mediate
Phone looks great except for that big screen and Helio X10 and graphic card this phone use they should add at least 4000 mAh othervise you have to charge twice a day.
Unless you gonna use this phone only for accepting calls.
In general speaking about Htc smartphones. It's a good and solid mobile, the specs are great, sound and camera is the best.
But one little detail. Why should Htc put an black bar with Htc logo on all devices on below of the mobile.
What exactly are you excited about? Just asking because I never had HTC.
RBBP, 26 Jan 2016For INR-25K, this is one top-notch phone from HTC! And people complaining here should stfu! It... moreNo way near the processing power of One Plus 2 or Honor 7. Also OP2 and Honor 7 have much better cameras and excellent finger print sensors.
This phone will be a big flop. Why you want to buy a mid ranger for 25 k. You get good mid rangers for 15k. For 25k you can get much much better phones. OP2 is awesome with the specs and the service that the One plus team offers. Honor 7 is also very good, but support is a bit lagging. But then a person who want to go with a HTC phone for him support doesn't matter as HTC support in India is next to zilch.
Anyways your money your choice. All the best. cheers.
wow gusy this phone a good still where hide a this phone very good feautures is nice and most imp battery back up is too good my suggetion buy a this phone
I.scorp, 27 Jan 2016what? review? for htc? no brother!!!!!!! most of htc phones have no review and gsm doesn't lik... moreyeh !!!
Gsmarena don't like HTC
only few htc phone have been reviewed why Gsmarena ????
Hopefully GSMArena will make a review sooner or later. This device seems rather interesting and unique, and HTC are definitely improving.
M7 user, 26 Jan 2016GSMarena, we are waiting for review!!!!what? review? for htc? no brother!!!!!!! most of htc phones have no review and gsm doesn't like to wright about them. WHY? maybe it reduces Samsung or apple marketing and selling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's better you wait for user experiences ( and many lie from other fans between them ). this is gsm arena and doesn't like htc :(
RBBP, 26 Jan 2016For INR-25K, this is one top-notch phone from HTC! And people complaining here should stfu! It... moreWell-said, bravo.
Like you, I can't wait for this to launch in my country.
The wait seems to be forever >
top250, 25 Jan 2016so your suggesting this phone should of came with a snapdragon 810?? if so you better be jokei... morethere is Snapdragon 808 , Snapdragon 820 , and Snapdragon 650,652 if you haven't noticed...
For INR-25K, this is one top-notch phone from HTC! And people complaining here should stfu! It's a brilliant phone phone for the price. Metal body, Boomsound/Dolby stereo speakers, 3 Gigs of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a pretty huge battery, a 13MP shooter capable of taking pics in RAW, 2K video recording, 32GB ROM with a 200GB expansion of storage, Optical Image Stabilization, an amazing theme engine and software, Android Marshmallow on-board and the elegant, beautiful and light Sense UI. All this packed into a phone under INR-25K? Count me in!
People complaining about the One X9 not being a 2K screen- Doesn't really make a huge difference from 1080p. Google it if you have to. Besides, It's got a PPI of 401. If that ain't good enough, then I don't know what is.
For those of you 'demanding' for finger-print scanners. That's debatable. But I for one, don't really want one on my phone. It's just too gimmicky for me. But then again, that's just me. Also, if you put in a fingerprint lock on your phone, all the motion gestures like tap to unlock becomes pretty much obsolete.
Now for those of you complaining about the MediaTek CPU and Graphic chipsets- Hakuna your ta-tas. It's more than capable of handling pretty much every app or activity thrown at it. You guys want an overkill with the Snapdragon 810, which also has a serious heating issue, might I add. Also, it's a mid-ranger. Not a flagship phone. If you were paying INR-40K or more for this phone, it'd be understandable. But you're not. So don't complain for the sake of it.
And those of you comparing this phone to the prices of the OnePlus Two and other low-cost low-branded phones- For goodness sake! Metal uni-body, amazing build quality and quick software updates. For more, look at the specs again. And I must admit that HTC has been guilty of overpricing their phones in the past, but this phone isn't.
Now, as great as a phone this is, I do have a couple of qualms.
One, the navigation keys- I hope HTC keeps an option for it's potential buyers to have an option in-built into the phone's software enabling us to choose between on-screen and off-screen use of navigation buttons. Personally, I prefer the on-screen ones.
Two, I've noticed the absence of the app drawer from every pic of the One X9 I've seen online. I prefer the presence of an app drawer. Gives an android feel to it.
