Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015you mean the iphone clone of the htc clone? since after all the iphone was copied from htc .the A9 looks far closer to the iphone 6 than the iphone 6 looks to the M7. Please get your head out of a hole
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015I certainly agree HTC use better quality material. A few years back, I used a few HTC devices ... moreSamsung gorilla glass? Sorry but samsung doesnt manufacture gorilla glass. However, there is some merit to what you said. It appears the gorilla glass 4 is less scratch resistant than the gorilla glass 3, but is supposed to be tougher.
I certainly agree HTC use better quality material. A few years back, I used a few HTC devices and their screens are good, whereas Samsung Gorilla glass get visible scratches easily.

But honestly if anyone is creating an illusion of specs for the price then your complaint belongs elsewhere. of all the devices I have pawed over and used its the best to date. enjoy
Yup great news. I bought 3 unlocked and imported to Australia and have already received some updates two weeks ago as well.
I have to say of all the phones I have looked at, felt, used and pawed over, the HTC A9 is seriously the most outstanding feeling beautiful handset I have ever used. Its feel good premium-ness is really terrific.. Battery good, screen super crisp and clean. camera excellent. its been worth every cent. Very very happy
Adiyel, 08 Dec 2015So I guess the iPhone clone helped after all. Like me, many would like an iPhone with an android OS you mean the iphone clone of the htc clone? since after all the iphone was copied from htc .

These are the main dealbreake... moreWhat?
HTC One M8 have an excelent battery. I have one and it never got less than 10% after a day full of use, even on travels when I take photos and upload to social media. And it charges fast with QuickCharge 2.0...

HTC creates the illusion of quality by ramping prices higher and usage of niche, yet inferior materials. Google the "illusion of quality", HTC is even mentioned next to Apple in several books. The "you get what you pay for" strategy is Samsung, Sony in many cases and LG. Lenovo and others sell because of the value product strategy.
It´s of course great that HTC uses top-quality speakers, top quality audio chips, often top bright and contrast screens with great angles, top Gorilla glass, top quality user interface etc.
But average customers can´t notice these positives when checking specifications in shop, especially the midrage class phones.
Look at Lenovo.
Customer and shop selles could sipmply notice for the first sight: 3000-4000 mAh battery, Dolby Atmos, Vibe SHOT, Lenovo PHAB, LTE on both sim cards, etc.
And poor sound, poor cameras, low glass´s quality, poor and often laggy UI.. But average customers can´t notice at first sight in shop.
Then price could be lower so customers in shops likes it and buy it.
HTC should learn how to make their phone´s specifications ATRACTIVE FOR THE FIRST SIGHT.
Poor battery capacity, cameras (mainly flagships), overpricing.
These are the main dealbreakers people around me have with HTC phones since last three years.
Awaiting since a long time HTC best phone with all the upgraded display ram camera os battery design
