pccwtmoasoab, 01 Apr 2015HTC finance must be in deep shit, thus they have to use the same old mold for 3 years to make ... more1) Taiwan is not a province of Communist China(aka "China" nowadays). 2)Despite the exterior design is following the same philosophy, the mold is different across 3 iteration of Ones if you have any common sense in manufacturing.
No MicroSD and no changeable battery. What are you thinking Samsung. No sale.
p-chan, 31 Mar 2015I just don't get it, why people hates touchwiz. I personally thought that touchwiz is the best... morePeople dislike touchwiz because it can be very laggy. And if a samsung phone gets a touchwiz upgrade (for example going from 4.4.2 to 5.0.1 in S4) it gets more laggy and unstable. Also touchwiz update causes system updates to be huge. Upgrading my S4 to Lollipop cost me near about 950 MB.

They make different products. Why do you believe HTC should be making products the same way that Chines companies make them?
PhoneNerd, 01 Apr 2015There's nothing wrong being thicker, most phones are way too thin nowadays. But still, S6 Edge... moreThere is an issue when it's wasteful. Especially on a flagship. Especially when it's the third year in a row and only got thicker. And it's battery capacity is considered shall for its size every a couple years ago.

no micro usb slot.
no removable battery.
two of the things i loved about samsung
not happy now mr samsung.
hunterx, 31 Mar 2015i remember when gsmarena compare s4 with htc one m7, they surely praise s4 for having micro sd... moreI agree. but ! be careful because the "humankey" is more silly than you think. This mean you'll get more faster heart attack than they understand something.
HTC finance must be in deep shit, thus they have to use the same old mold for 3 years to make their 3 generation flagship models, One M7, M8, M9.
This year M9 model was worst as it go slightly thicker (instead of going thinner, weird) to accommodate the higher mega pixels camera. Even other China brands manage to go thinner, I can't understand why brand from Taiwan province can't go thinner. HTC from China Taiwan province getting more and more disappointing nowadays and I seriously think their revenue will take another hit into red again.
HTC One M9 worst part will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU which reported frequently overheat due to marginally passed spec CPU. Heard some rumours, HTC patched some M9 units with special firmware to have the problem CPU to run under-clock (lower Ghz speeed) to avoid overheat.
I'm impressed with the S6 but it still should have had an SD card and removable battery. Hopefully the Note 5 doesn't follow the same path.
hunterx, 31 Mar 2015i remember when gsmarena compare s4 with htc one m7, they surely praise s4 for having micro sd... moreI agree about the way they replied to you. But about SD slot again they do mention it in favor of HTC. And it's only one aspect of design. As well as how pretty you think a device is or what materials people are fooled into believing are the only definition of premium are two other entirely separate areas.
Be Cool, 31 Mar 2015Where do they say that M9 lost on design, iboy? Here from the article: "HTC One M9 over... morei remember when gsmarena compare s4 with htc one m7, they surely praise s4 for having micro sd card slot. and m7 do not have one. and its too arrogant for a samsung user like you. i am hardcore apple hater only for one f... reason. no freedom. i wrote many article in online blogs just about how selfish apple could be. and yet you told me i am a iboy. i commented on gsmarena after 2 years and this is what i get. its really time of waste to talk to stupid people like you. i am a normal user and i see things as normal user see. galaxy s6 in bangladesh is 79000 bdt which is 1050 us dollars. i know its really premium device but 1050 us dollars is too much for us. even note 4 is 50,000 bdt means 600 us dollars. now you tell me which one people should buy. and you said s3 and s5 is failure. ohh man. you are really a fool. s3 is still the number 1 selling galaxy mobile out there. it is so popular that even in 2015 there is a model selling in bangladesh called galaxy s3 neo please google for for the prove if you do not believe me. all galaxy phone till s5 even my note 3 has a common problem. after using few months the bumper chrome color start to fading out. but from note 4 it is gone forever. i had a octa core note 4 which had an odd problem of restart when i run antutu and at cpu floating point time. but with my note 4 lte a that problem is gone and i am quite happy about my mobile. i am a hardcore mobile user who prefers mobile more than laptop on the go and i used to travel a lot for my job purpose. so extra battery is a great solution for me over power bank. i do not trust power bank cause if you use note 4(which i do not think you use at all, and yet you tell me i am a iboy), you will see the charging adapter is different and very big compare to other galaxy phone. and it has two mode. either 5v 2A or 9v 1.67A. i really doubt that any aftermarket power bank can really supply clean 5v 2A. if the vold or Amp mismatch you will damage your battery. so spare battery is my only option. and even without spare note series battery by far outperform any s series battery. btw, my point is even though i am note user(actually samsung user), i do bash other companies. in fact i admire their mobile and i want samsung use the positive of it. and please do not become so arrogant galaxy s user. no matter how much you praise, no matter how much you cry, note series always perfection over s series. that is why note comes later. hahahahahahahahha......
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015I didn't even need to read it to know that the S6 would win. It's pretty much expected here. ... moreImo the reason htc m9 got lower battery endurance is because it uses snapdragon 810 and android lollipop......if the m9 uses snapdragon 805 and android 4.4 it should perform better.
luffy199, 31 Mar 2015Very nice comparison between the two phones. HTC didn't improve much over previous generation ... moreI just don't get it, why people hates touchwiz. I personally thought that touchwiz is the best launcher for it's function. I'd rather have touchwiz since they give a multitasking function, smart glances, etc rather than ui senses for just the look. Especially now they tone down the tw so it's much lighter and smooth.
Since the look of the S6 is slightly better than before, I would trade off the looks for micro sd cards. The read/write speed might be low, but we only store pictures, music and videos on it anyway. I would also love to have removable battery, considering the track record of previous Samsung phones.
