a Prophet, 22 Oct 2015to be honest yes Apple copied a bit of HTC but they improved it and re-designed a bit while HT... moreActually the A9 design is an improvement over the M7 design. Why would they do such revenge and copied the company who copied them while they can improve their own design?
Okay the A9 key features :
1. Metal components - HTC use this since 2011
2. Full metal uni-body - HTC use this since 2013
3. Flat body - Desire's lineup design
4. Antenna strips - First ever used in One M7, also for M8 and surprisingly M9.
So now Apple :
1. Use the all metal uni-body for iPhone 6 in 2014. (Design of One M7 2013)
2. Acquire the Beats Music and Electronics in 2014. (Used in most HTC's phones from 2011 until 2013)
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2015*Correction* I don't know why HTC chose to make all these new phones that LOOK LIKE HTC One M... moreI know what you're saying trust me, i still own an HTC M7... The only resemblance i see is the white antenna lines.. Everything else screams IPhone 6/6s. HTC was one of the first to use a uni-body design that's true.. But what they're doing here is obviously imitating the Iphone's design to a T.. One of the people that works in the design department for HTC was asked "Is the HTC A9 basically an Iphone running Android"? & he ultimately said yes.. I'll find you proof if you're still doubting it. It's okay though, they're just trying to convert some Apple users to Android which is fine..
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015Lol leave it to Apple fans to say they invented the wheel I probably owned several HTC s before you've ever heard about them Cookie.
Not even gonna lie, it really does look like they're copying Apple. I know they came up with the original idea, but Apple somehow managed to make it look really different. I just don't want every phone looking like an iPhone, I guess.
P.S: If that's what the new O2 is gonna look like, then Apple's gonna have an Android counterpart. It'll probably look that similar lol
HTC are realy nice phone but the batter does not last very long they every so offten you have to buy a new battery
If Stereos gone then bye bye htc i have more than 8 devices in my family of htc so no stereo then bye htc
Oh goodies.... There will be even more ugly iPhone clones..... HTC needs to fire and then kill their designer (design team) so that he/she/them can't go somewhere else to to design more of those things... The "best" and the "most ingenious" thing in the design is the "home" button/fingerprint reader .... I"m just speechless...
max power, 22 Oct 2015I don't understand why HTC chose to make all these new phones that look exactly like an Iphone... more*Correction* I don't know why HTC chose to make all these new phones that LOOK LIKE HTC One M series" that had that design since 2013. Clearly you didn't read my previous comment.
Nice one. Love it. saw the launch and digested the details. Perfect mid ranger. Well.. actually much higher than my 2012 unit which has been terrific so here we go. Slim smooth and fast. I was going to get a 6s but not now. save loads of mulla and a better unit overall. Cool
Rahills, 22 Oct 2015beats audio is trash, doesn't matter whether it's on a hp laptop or a htc phoneWhy people keep bashing beats audio?
It's abour preferences. I love deep bass and find that urbeats is better than HK
in that matter. Believe me since I have HTC One M8 HK and also M7 beats.
Stop being haters. Not all have the same taste.
For me, beats audio is awesome, and I think apple thinks the same since
they acquisitioned beats company.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015It great to hear that HTC's ugliest design will be making it's way to all of their phones and ... moreIf HTC best design (One M7 & M8) didn't impress you...
A9 also won't satisfied your taste..
In short word you never liked HTC.
then why on earth you bother to read this article and comment?
Seriously you need to stop contradict your self, dude
Go see your doctor.
Actually Apple copied our phone design, says HTC exec
Apple copying is actually a self-ridicule course of action.
HTC One M7 even won the best smartphone award in 2013 while its numerous copies by other companies afterwards didn't.
*Sigh*... HTC will never learn... The best design in the whole One family was M7. A9 looks awful with even bigger bezels and the useless home button. R.I.P HTC.
While we're at it, rectangles with rounded edges were done before smartphone were even made. I remember I had one by Nokia, full metal and glass. Looked real professional, had a nice amount of heft to it too.
Does that mean the BOTTOM of the upcoming handsets is going to look like the iPhone? So many manufacturers are doing this, Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi....why??? =3=
I don't understand why HTC chose to make all these new phones that look exactly like an Iphone, and in fact the Iphone still looks better because it's symmetrical. The bottom of the A9 makes my OCD go crazy lol HTC is capable of making a phone that looks and feels better than any Iphone... and that is why i am clueless as to why they didn't choose to do that, laziness maybe? i don't know.. What i do know is that they are falling.. and fast!
