M7 is still the best looking of the three. In M7 the sensors are on one side and the front cam is on the other side of the top bezel so there is enough space in between them to accommodate a speaker grill, which is equal to the size of the speaker grill on the bottom bezel.
I'm very disappointed in the photo quality. The photos in good light look like Picasso's artwork. Very ugly noise reduction algorithms. No OIS. F2.2 vs. F1.9 in Samsung.

You can have 4k display on a phone, 5gb of RAM but it doesn't make it more useful. It depends on what's needed. I'm not saying that M9 is a bad phone, I like htc and it's a fabulous device. But as far as hardware goes I prefer M7 over M8. And now over M9 as it's a modified M8. I have used M8 and it's battery life has really surprised me, great battery backup. If M9 could replicate that then that would be awesome.

Why the heck they wasted another phone by stupid HTC logo on the front instead making bigger screen or smaller phone? Design team should be sacked.
davvy ghotra, 01 Mar 2015far better than s6haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaha yeah right.
No OIS = no buy, for me! So much metal is too heavy, and probably slippery!
S6 look good, but all that glass needs a case, and 16 Mp camera with OIS will be the best, but S6 looks too much like iPhone 6.
For me my S3 is still good enough with FM-radio.

So its quite logical , keep your phone , there's nothing new here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My thoughts exactly.. I'm yet to come across a phone as beautiful and we'll made as my m7..
sopranosmohit, 01 Mar 2015Well done htc. So let's see the good and the bad..
Stayed practical no need to. Increas... moreDOLBY 5.1
I wonder how the speakers perform when they are just a pair phone speakers. I'm skeptic about it.
I'm not a crazy fan user. It's a pleasure to use different phones including Chinese mobile. I have never used htc phone. Considering first time m9. Just waiting for battery and camera review. Feeling realy excited.
Hmm... A great deal to be my option as successor to my Z2 now... But I shall wait for what Z4 offers before decide...
My M7 is still the best, the design, the sound, everything. People around me always stare at it, some ask me about it's performance, it's that beautiful. I don't see any drastic changes in M9.... M7 has also got 1080p screen, great sound and it accomplishes almost everything that you expect from a premium smartphone. I'll give M9 a pass, just like I did to M8. Let's see what M10 brings to the table next year :)
Well done htc. So let's see the good and the bad..
Stayed practical no need to. Increase screen resolution or pixels density further on this size barely noticeable differences. Moreover it leads to battery drainage. Sadly s6 did that.
Camera is awesome on HTC devices well. So
20 mp is super awesome guys but no optical image stabilisation hmm no fair htc. Let's see the what Toshiba sensor does.
Well finger print reader was expected. Not there. SAD.
WOW FOR THE DOLBY 5.1. Htc always provides user with best sound quality which is very important to me. Samsung sadly fails to that that yet again
Speed let's talk about speed. Htc good. Samsung blew the charts in terms of performance with the s6. But I really wanna know do we actually need that kuch power. I got htc m8 nothing stops it. No high end game or video no problem. So it will all come down to the cost of these phones for little difference in cost samung you won the race my friend.
Display. Ahhh thank you u did not opt super ambled I hate those contrast. But yes a super lcd 4 with less power consumption was expected.
What about wireless charging. Sad no no.
Lovely sense 7 is welcomed man. Nothing beats sense. Tried all touchwiz. Xperia. Also. Sense just awesome.
In a nutshell between s6 and htc m9 it all comes down to mainly the cost. Htc needs a large difference in cost between s6 and the m9. Otherwise htc bankruptcy and Samsung woo hoo wining the race. Cause people see specs rather than practicality
