HTC One M9 vs One M8 – 8 key differences

HTC One M9 vs One M8 – 8 key differences
Right on cue, HTC took the stage at this year's Mobile World Congress and announced its latest flagship – the HTC One M9. It is a smartphone blending modern, industrial design with potent, high-end hardware, all sprinkled with doses of Android 5.0 Lollipop and Sense 7.0 UI. Seriously, it is a good phone, as it becomes clear in our HTC One M9 hands-on look

However, many have criticized HTC for practically rehashing the look and feel of last year's model, the One M8. And we do understand where the criticism comes from as the One M9 is strikingly similar to the One M8 on the outside. But identical it is not. Once you take a closer look, the multitude of key differences between the two models become evident, and we feel like we should highlight them for you.
