In terms of looks htc one m7 and one max are the best. Performance wise m8 is the best but the asymmetrical speakers in m8 and m9 and m9 plus looks weird. There may not be any boom box or any stereo device having one small speaker/grill and the other one larger in this world expect m8 and m9 and m9 plus. Htc may be the only company coming with such an odd design for some meagre improvement in sound. Like in m7 and one max,they should have placed the sensors on one side and the front cam on the other side on the top bezel so there would have been enough space in between to put a speaker grill equal to the size of speaker grill on the bottom bezel. There was no need for a finger print scanner which makes this m9 plus the ugliest flagship of htc. Just because other top brands are putting finger print scanner on their phones, htc shouldn't have done it by spoiling the looks. In the end nobody is going to buy this Ugly phone even though having the F.P scanner.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2015Galaxy Note Tablet is IMO the only worthwhile tablet . Unlike ipad it is not a big phone, and ... morebut the 8 inch tab s is working beyond fine to me, it has the speed and everything the note series can do. But i have only own this tablet from samsung tho, not sure about the others.
htc gonna fall.... i got m8 but i'm gonna buy note 5 ... fuck htc i love you
LOL! I have Oppo Find 7 and the configuration HTC is launching now with M9 plus i'm using it since past one year that too with biggeer screen.
The finger scanner destroyed the design of the phone. Htc are destroying their phones
Wow, what a design mess. They've put a physical home button and have an on-screen one too? Wow, just wow.

Unlike ipad it is not a big phone, and unlike androids it uses top notch hardware (for its time anyway). By flashing CM12 it never loses a hitch, great battery, great performance and above all -still- one of the best ways to take notes in any situatuion , be it a meeting, a lecture, book keeping.
Going back to ipads or to any of the rest of Droids was like going back to stone ages. Too bad Samsung discontinued the series, they're one dumb company full of disastrous ideas (and even when they come up with good ones, they soon abandon them for those of much lower quality).
HTC is a great smartphone manufacturer. I love their design and really simple and easy to use.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2015I just can't see why you'd buy one over the NoteNot everyone sit in the same spot all the time, the. Region lock of Note devices is not acceptable, why buy a phone that doesnt work everywhere.
wow these are much better! but still I'm disappointed! and 5.2? i was expecting 5.5 at least!
AnonD-264927, 24 Mar 2015I like hTc BUT 1st they should place their name/logo some where else, If they want to keep it... moreTrue they are too long but all phones are kindof long these days, except LG but LG uses so big displays that the advantage goes away, they end up same length after all and wider in addition. Blame the thinness trend, to make phones slimmer they need to make them this big to fit decent batteries, its madness but noone dares think outside the box they got from Apple.
Keke, 24 Mar 2015I'm suspicious that HTC will follow the path of samsung by releasing many phones. Why M9+ in ... moreAnd whats one main reason why Samsung tablets are so crappy? Its Ad-droid, go ahead and try any tablet and youll see that noone made an ok ad-droid tablet yet. Just buy Air or Air 2, it doesnt get any better, not even close. Even iHaters know in their hearth that ipad is vastly superior, i know because i used to be one.
I like hTc BUT
1st they should place their name/logo some where else, If they want to keep it there than they should utilise it as a physical home button, it is just taking up the screen.
2nd to make it look uni-balance why not split the top boomsound speaker and place front camera in centre.
tan, 24 Mar 2015Htc should shove it...like seriously whats the point of releasing 2 identical phones with one ... moreI am hTC fan from the time of original Desire and Desire Z phones, but lately I have less and less hope for hTC to survive. I know there is no perfect phone out there but samsung is pretty close with S6, and One series always seems to have some letdowns...camera, ergonomics, overheating...
This M9 Plus is said to be 150+ mm tall. How tall would it be if it is 5.5" or even 5.7" like Note 4? 200 mm??? Who would buy that?
It's a shame really, cos M9 had all the potential to be as close to perfection as possible from the time I heard first rumors (which included possibility of having ceramic unibody, not necessary of course) up to all the beautiful renders I saw on the net (which i really can't understand...do their designers have eyes?).
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2015with a button despite the onscreen navigation???? hahaIt may double as fingerprint sensor but yeah its still ridiculous and utterly ugly. Then again the ugliness matches the back of the device, all in all this thing is ugly enough to deserve classification as Ebolas sister.
