i hope HTC doesn't just copy iphone 6 design, but alsy copies its effort integrating and optimizing the OS with the hardware.
with snapdragon 820, speed is no longer a problem. please optimize the battery usage as well.
NOOOO!!!!!!..., i realy hate A9, its look is horible, and suck with iphone body lines.. what kind of devil with you htc??
what about the m9 fabulas desing ????
The A9 looked shitty. I really want to see HTC back in the game, but it seems like they just really WANT to bankrupt themselves...

I can tell you definitely know about the smartphone world, unlike a lot of people here. So, if the M10 does follow the design elements of the A9, then it's gonna be totally crap, unless they stay with the BoomSound, otherwise, that's gonna be it. This is going to be HTC's last chance to properly recover the success they had, so if they screw this one up, then that's it, we'll be able to say goodbye HTC.
"If you like the A9, you'll love the M10"
I don't like the A9, so I won't love the M10 :)
Carmanen, 26 Jan 2016HTC should have stick to the M8&M9 design with M10... ...why make phone that looks like iP... morei have M8 also and got marshmallow with sense 7 recently and its like heaven! but Dont worry, BoomSound speakers are included in new flagship.lets just wait up ;P
EvilMonkey, 26 Jan 2016Read the A9 review for f's sake! http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one_a9-review-1331p2.phphtc one a9 looks like iphone 6
AnonD-411799, 26 Jan 2016when did apple copy htc? oh you are talking about htc one m7? compare m7 vs iphone 6 side by s... moreYep, the M7 (BB Z10 from the front + speaker grills, BTW :)). The plastic antenna thingies to be more exact. Your point is absolutely valid but A9's design maybe the product of the evolution of their own design and not plagiarism.
AnonD-379427, 26 Jan 2016But there's no deny that the A9 looks exactly like the iPhone. If someone is holding an iPhone... moreI think HTC's designers wanted to make the new One series phones to look more sleek, more "modern" by refining the design they already had. But there's hardly any wiggle room for ground breaking changes when designing a touchscreen phone. I like what GSMArena wrote in the A9 review as a disadvantage:
"HTC may have a claim on the controversial design, but it isn't popularized by the brand"
- they didn't want to start a war so they included the "may" word
- it doesn't really matter who made it first, Apple made the design popular and now everyone identifies it as an iPhone design
What concerns me is because of the popularity of the iPhone everybody knows what someone means when they say "it looks like an iPhone". Should HTC copy some unknown manufacturer, no one would make claims that the new HTC XY looks just like the UnknownCorp Z. People who thinks journalism is about copy&pasing and the pinnacle of their tech proficiency is stating that "only Macs have MAC address" spread the news like the plague that HTC took an iPhone and put their hardware in it.
And I don't think Apple counts this as a serious issue beacause some years ago they've sued a company (maybe Samsung) on charges that the edges of their new phone are curved in the same degree as the current iPhone, and if I'm right they haven't sued HTC yet.
Omg! are u out to do harakiri . Why kill something that was your own ,your own original design . Please do not do it
HTC should have stick to the M8&M9 design with M10... ...why make phone that looks like iPhone when you had unique design with previous One M models?!? I don't understand that. Does this mean no stereo speakers for M10 either? I'm glad i have M8 (with boomsound stereo speakers!) with newly updated Marshmallow and it's smooth as hell!
What I want from A9 to be in M10:
- Fingerprint scanner
What I want from M10 that's not in A9:
- Trademark BoomSound stereo front speakers
- At least 3000 mAh battery
- Shorter bottom bezel (move the fp scanner elsewhere)
AJ_74, 26 Jan 2016In other words, the same tired, "hey, I look like an iPhone!"-esque design. HTC never learns. You do know Apple copied HTC first right? iPhone 6 - 2014 HTC One - 2013
EvilMonkey, 26 Jan 2016Too bad Apple stole the design from HTC. Apple is only good at two things lately: steal stuff ... moreBut there's no deny that the A9 looks exactly like the iPhone. If someone is holding an iPhone and an M7, I can easily tell them apart. But A9 and an iPhone? No fucking way, the A9 is just a copy of the ip6
