HTC One M9 Technical Specifications

Display

Display Size: 5.0 inches

Display Type: Super LCD3

Screen Resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 441 ppi

Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 4

The HTC One M9 has a decent display profile. The One M9 display however, trails behind its peers i.e. Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4

The One M9 still rocks a 1080p display at an age where a 2K displays define high-end. When an HTC Exec was asked on why the company passed on a 2K display, the company’s response was that a HD display is perfect for the ‘user experience’.

You may therefore, have to check out the HTC One M9+ if you want nothing less than a 2K display.

Design

Frame Dimensions: 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.6 mm

Weight: 157 g

HTC flagship smartphones designers have always prioritized design over every single aspect. The HTC One M9 stays true to that. The HTC One M9 has an exquisite design that screams premium and is way better than what you can get with most of its rivals.

You get some sort of curved all-metal design that looks awesome to gaze at, let alone touch. The Smartphone does look a lot like the One M8 and it is therefore, extremely hard to tell the two devices apart.

Performance

Operating System: Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop)

CPU: Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57

RAM: 3 GB

Internal Memory: 32 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 128 GB

The HTC One M9 is a performance beast. You get two quad core CPUs plus some 3GB RAM, a blend that is as powerful as it sounds.

You on top of that get Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box and this is the icing on this delicious gun-metal cake.

Camera

Rear Camera: 20.7 MP

Secondary Camera: 4 MP

LED Flash: Yes

The camera profile of the HTC One M8 was one of its weakest point. HTC seems to be attentive to customer feedback and gave the One M9 one of the largest rear snapper you will find on a 2015 flagship smartphone.

The HTC One M9 has a 20 MP rear snapper, a massive upgrade from the dual 4 MP snapper found on the One M8. Such a camera may be a sweet melody to most, but word around is that the camera only looks good paper.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Po 2840 mAh

The HTC One M9 features a Li-Po 2840 mAh, a slight upgrade from the Li-Po 2600 mAh battery found on the One M9.

Verdict

The HTC One range has always been about design. HTC is always attentive to details and this was the prime reason why a section of smartphone buyers passed on Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphones.

I don’t know if you have seen the Galaxy S6, it is a work of art, built from ground up to reflect the aesthetics  that was absent on its  predecessors.

The same can be said about the LG G4.

Beauty aside, it’s now all about brains.  It will be interesting how the One M9 fairs in the market.
