Its understandable if you dont like htc but coming here to paste bullshit is what i dont get, nobody is forcing you to buy their produts. For me htc remains the best although it flaws which is present in other companies aswell. My iphone 6plus just fell down and the screen gone but my ht has fallen many times with little or no sratch
HTC fans, 26 Dec 2015If it were you the HTC designer, would you design smartphones which everyone would like to buy... moreOf course I would, your comment doesn't make sense, please come back with a proper reply, but I don't think you will, because HTC aren't capable of making attractive exciting phonesand certainly they're not capable of making phones larger than 6" which is why they are lagging behind every other company.
why don't you put powerVR 6400 HTC?!!! so it'll justified the overpriced.
angelod90, 27 Dec 2015How so?It has micro SD for example.
LLL, 25 Dec 2015Anyone in his right mind won't jump to hasty conclusion from just initial impression. Dig dee... moreI agree with you, this is just a fist impression yet am still unsure about the 170 more you would pay for this. The xiaomi has downsides as you said. Waiting for review to see the differences. Am currently using the vibe x2 but i'll upgrade soon. the vibe x3 looks stellar but am waiting for its review first. the moto x pure edition looks better as compared to the htc x9
htc's problem is they think they're apple. if they would just lower their pricing vs hardware then they'll be able to manage. look at asus, another taiwanese manufacturer doing good in pc and now in smartphones. asus always provide bang for the buck products
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2015you see just one thing.if put out every thing there is one thing that affect and manage all ot... moreI have used the ui of samsung s6, htc one m8 eye and lenovo Vibe x2, all of them 1st tier smartphone manufacturers. As uv'e said among the three I seemed to like the htc ui since it was smooth even after months of use. When u say the best design and speakers go on the side of htc, am not quite sure all the time since the A9 is opposite of that.Am not comparing the high end offerings of htc, sony and samsung, I'm comparing their midrange offerings and budget offerings. An example is for under 400 dollars the x9 is below par as compared to Chinese owned companies like motorola X Pure Edition,oneplus. Even xiaomi for 362 dollars in everbuying.com you get the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro 5.7" 2K Sharp JDI Display Android 5.0 4GBtam 64GB 64-bit Smartphone Snapdragon 810 Octa Core White. Am no expert but if you are the expert you say you are check out the review of the mi note pro and then tell me you would rather buy the x9
mas39, 26 Dec 2015Boring HTC. how on earth they still exist is still one of life's mysteries. Sony are the best ... moreIf it were you the HTC designer, would you design smartphones which everyone would like to buy? Think about that and then say something negative.
ray, 26 Dec 2015lots of lots of phones by HTC for this year, they try to get thire customw=ers back by releasi... moreThe design of the HTC One M9 is great, it's just the chip that was inside wasn't a good choice... and the fact that they have next to no marketing going towards their devices. I live in Canada and have never seen an HTC commercial except for stuff I've seen on youtube. That's why their sales aren't very good. Marketing is the big thing. I love HTC, but the M8 camera wasn't anything special, and the M9 chip wasn't good. But if they kept a similar metal unibody design with lik3 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage, expandable memory, the new 820 chip instead of the mediate, a 20mp camera and of course the stereo speakers, it would be a great device,
lots of lots of phones by HTC for this year, they try to get thire customw=ers back by releasing too many phones, but if they just changed the design of HTC M9 they want be this situation.
Boring HTC. how on earth they still exist is still one of life's mysteries. Sony are the best in every way and long may they continue.
angelod90, 25 Dec 2015Why would anyone in his right mind consider this phone over the recently released xiaomi redmi... moreyou see just one thing.if put out every thing there is one thing that affect and manage all other and that is UI.i have zony Z3 but I have to tell you that htc UI is the best in android. and now you asked why I have sony? because it is a gift from my family and.... for sure you can not compare xiaomi,lenovo,zte or even Huawei with htc.htc has thq best quality,design and UI in addition to speakers and high quality phones.it is made of low mind that you compare xiaomi with htc.htc,sony,samsung are different with cheap brands like you mentioned.go and buy xiaomi and leave here for expert
Mahesh, 24 Dec 2015Design looks pretty good (y), Its good to see Capacitive touch buttons on HTC :)exactely. and good to have them, they took them out since m7 and thus reduced effective screen size for 2 models. nice they found a brain again
It is appaling to me that GSMA has created a spec page for Samsung A9 but has not done so for HTC X9 yet.
They both leaked a lot and launched the same day.

Dig deeper and we can distinguish those two better.
Most glaring is the lack of micro SD expansion in Redmi Note 3. Its camera lacks OIS.
And despite its 4000 mAh battery it manages only 72 hour endurance rating (check it out in its specifications page), good but clearly not so efficient.
Not to mention HTC's metal body although some people prefer plastic body so that's arguably subjective.
Meanwhile, give Lenovo's offerings a look too. The Vibe X3 and A7010 pretty much cover the lower mid to upper mid range.
