HTC One A9 size comparison: here's how the new mid-range offering stacks up against its rivals

In case you've missed it, HTC is in big trouble - profits, market share, and almost everything else is dwindling, save for the company's desire to treat the public to a new smartphone once in a while. Well, its newest device just got launched - enter the HTC One A9, the Taiwanese company's latest attempt at retaking its lost positions on the smartphone market.

Well, we are not going to beat about the bush - the One A9 resembles some of its more popular competitors a lot. It doesn't take a genius to spot to design features that have been taken straight from the iPhone 6/6s's book, but as you certainly know, a book shouldn't be judged by its cover.

As far as the "cover" of the HTC One A9 is concerned, or should we say its exterior, we have a body that has dimensions of 145.75x70.8.x7.26mm and tips the scales at 143gr. This makes not too shabby in the size department, for sure, but how does the One A9 fare against all other phones it wants to trump? 

Check out our visual size comparison right below and judge for yourself!

It was Apple that took some hints from HTC's designs first.

OH stop it. Cues are one thing, but this is a blatant rip. Just look at the bottom of the device.

The bottom? I see this as a minimalized version of the M8/M9. Go look. Those lines? HTC had them before iPhone does.

Here is a fair comparison of design elements that were used first between the HTC One series and the Apple iPhone series (note that I am NOT necessarily saying that either phone were the first to use these design elements out of all phone manufacturers, but rather comparing between the two which had them first): HTC One series 1. Aluminum backing with plastic lines for cellular bands Apple iPhone series 1. Protruding camera 2. Camera at the top of the back of the device (instead of more towards the center as in older HTC One series) 3. Rounded rectangular home button that doubles as a fingerprint reader 4. Four metal color choices including: gold, silver, grey, and a magenta/pink color.

The GS6 wins everything in most of these comparisons.

Too tall and wide for a 5 incher. Its thickness and weight both doesn't make sense considering it has a small battery and AMOLED display which is famous with its thin profile comparison to LCD.

It's because HTC doesn't know how to design anymore. Their real designers are probably abandoning ship.

You know for sure when the person writing this article doesn't know what they're writing about when they say, "It doesn't take a genius to spot to design features that have been taken straight from the iPhone 6/6s's book..." See the HTC M7.

That's your opinion. The One A9 does look like an iPhone 6/6s.
