HTC One M9 vs Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison

HTC One M9 vs Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison
With the HTC One M9, the manufacturer of the device is certainly hoping to grab a larger share of the Android market. This means going head-on with Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Huawei, and Sony, and from the looks of it, the One M9 might be the perfect device for the job. 

But what if HTC wants to steal some of Apple's market share? This means waging war on the almighty iPhone duo that is helping Apple bring home the bacon and breaking record after record. 

Undoubtedly, the new dual-tone HTC will clash with the iPhone 6 and its larger peer, shaking the shelves and giving us a worthy battle. Although we can't predict which device will be more successful market-wise in the long run yet, there's one thing we can do - put the One M9 toe-to-toe against the best of Cupertino.
