FHD is perfect for this phone. What people want is a longer battery life. If HTC can go for 3000mAh or above, then that would be great.
but sadly the leaked specs state that it will be of the FullHD instead of the QHD variety found in some current flagships
Stop trying to push for QHD in a 5" screen, it is unnecessary when 1080p is more than enough. QHD brings a marginal increase in pixel density for less battery life and lower performance.
I hope either the specs are wrong or they are going to make a second model with a 5.5" screen. I really want a large screen phone but the premium feel and brand new specs of the m9 (I refuse to call it Hima, cause that's a stupid name)
x, 23 Dec 2014I really hope more manufacturers will keep on FHD. There is literally zero reason for qHD in ... moreIts is QHD not qHD. Btw i agree with you. HD is good n FHD is excellent. QHD is just ridiculous
Everything's good except maybe the size of the phone (too big) and the size of the battery (3000+ mAH would be nice). Anyway, hope they made improvements to the screen (power efficiency, contrast, viewing angles, color, etc.).
Guy Hero, 23 Dec 2014Exactly and if these rumors are true then HTC realize that as well.Also hope this saves them money in some way
my objection among one is this Hima too tall and thin.
unbalance proportion of 144 X 69 mm!
would make this 5" phone tall and narrow!
HTC should've made 140 X 71, that's give WIDE angle just like Motorola Droid Maxx I own. Superb dimension for 5".
I can imagine that Hima would have the same shape like E8 which tall and thin like skinny supermodel...
,,Sadly only full hd'' on a 5 inch screen????? Please gsmarena don't encourage this insane marketing campaign of higher and higher ppi.
"a reasonably big 2,840mAh battery."
That is big for a 4.7inch screen. Sounds normal for 5inch. Small for anything above 5inch.
QHD dispay makes it perfect. If it is not coming with it, then it could be termed as a drawback
I like the descion about the new htc flagship good job htc
we are waiting for a stunning design
bsandeep, 23 Dec 2014I wish they could get in native video calling as well. I do not buy HTC phones for two reasons... moreVery poor battery life? I think you didn't see how good is the M8 battery. I have it for 6 months and NEVER got less than 10% in a full day hard use. It was a problem to mu older One X, but M8 has a very good battery.
If it doesn't have an optical image stabiliser, I won't be buying it.
MrShutUpAndStopCryn, 23 Dec 2014what u talking about, the one x+ i got years ago can still perform. bad comment you made givin... moreDepends on:
-luck (How good the particular peace of battery will be)
-Your usage (After 300+ cycles, the battery lasts obviously less. And with current batteries you may even have to recharge twice a day, so it may not even last a year).
