Looks like HTC has placed a screen in the middle of big bezels, rather than adding bezels to screen.
Well, this is....something.
At this pricing I feel the A9 is much better, save for the lack of stereo speakers.
But the A9 features Hi-Res audio, a really great camera (front and back) and also is constantly receiving updates.
Will this phone ever receive a single update?
I had the E9+ and never saw anything past a small patch at launch.
Days has gone with 2gb ram and 16gb memory and price tag with around Rs.38000/-, expectation was with 3-4gb ram with 32gb memory, anyway it will be a flop.
As all the technology manufacturers badly wanted to minimize the bezels, HTC still in stone age. They were never get out under stone and never comparing its phone with other phones in all aspects from specification and pricing. So doom for you HTC, your name would disappear someday.
biggest joke of all the companies that make smartphones. Wish someone inside HTC stood up and changed the way of doing things. They are not Apple or samsung,prices are bullshit.
When i think about it that must be their new thing,to price their devices wrong :)
great and you have this same for 125Â€ new, but with GOOD Chinese brand, not the HTC, just camera is not as good as this one...this cost a lot
what's with the huge bottom bezel? damn htc, you always have a thing for bezels
I have been waiting for the One X9 to launch in more markets, especially my market O.o
This S9 is inferior in many ways except perhaps front camera: less storage, less RAM, smaller screen that also means less battery capacity, and below 70% screen-to-body ratio.
On top of that, price is far too expensive.
SDKforLumia, 26 Apr 2016Is this some kind of a joke or did HTC really just unveiled this phone? Seriously, whoever des... moreYes
Blame htc for giving you choice
I don't want to be limited like apple and samsung forcing their keys and design on us.. software keys are much better
HTC is already doomed
I don't have any problems with the soc
It is the pricing and many versions
HTC just launch the 10 which are capable of going toe to toe against the S7.So surely their next offering will be as capable as the 10...
NOPE! Just what the hell are they are playing? Reusing the old M9 shell，put in an inferior chipset，overcharge it and voila!!! Seriously，HTC.Stop this blasphemy.
HTC 10 for me all the way. Which accompany our business 3 x A9.
Seriously couldn't be happier with that product and half the price of Iphone 6 which I also like. A9 is gorgeous, no doubt about that but look forward to trying / handling the 10. Tick :-)
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016... is probably less of a burden when it has a black front. ;-) A bit overpriced perhaps? ... morehelio x10 is doing good for most people (gpu performance is not up for very high demand gaming) but the real problem here is the price. if only they equip this phone with 3gb ram + fingerprint..
Is this some kind of a joke or did HTC really just unveiled this phone? Seriously, whoever designed this phone should be fired immediately. Look at those ugly top and bottom bezels, and those horrendous on screen buttons are back too? and phone is 10+ mm thick?? For what? WTF HTC???!!!
