Me too, I actually think it's the best design HTC has come up since M7

Right... but A9's design is the worst. Total iPhone 6s clone!

Except the iphone ripped off HTC's design, and they definitely didn't do it better...so the A9 is actually a great phone with a great design, as usual.

I hope m10 looks similar.

Or look way better! Great design and premium build is HTC's surviving sheild.

I'm thinking they'll base the M10 design off this, but hopefully without the capacitative buttons

Yes i hope it will come in red like the M series. Their version of red is the best looking red in the industry.

This might be the point where HTC strikes a comeback, I hope so at least, good luck HTC

Hoping as much. I have a feeling that HTC isn't dead yet, despite dropping out of top 10 smartphone sales.

I'm one of the rare people that actually really likes the A9, so I would still pick it over this this. Mostly for the fingerprint scanner and the AMOLED display.

It is a good phone if you overlook the tiny battery and iPhone design debacle.

I like the A9 too, but i'll be holding out for the A10.

I like the One A9 too for the same reasons you said, as well as HTC's Sense.

But that display isn't so efficient. I think anandtech did a thing on AMOLED displays, and they discovered that with the advent of the Note 4/SGS6 era tech, they were just about on the level of a good LCD in terms of efficiency. Even though this thing has a 3,000mAh battery, it'll likely have only a bit more battery life over the A9 due to the inefficient Mediatek SoC...

I like it too, but i dont care that much for fingerprint scanner, prefer stereo speakers and bigger battery. Fast updates for A9 are a big pro tho

ONE A9 back design with the front design of this phone would be a perfect Design for m10!

Helio X10 doesn't justify the price, and knowing HTC it will probably cost more when it arrived to US and Europe. But having a snapdragon 617 processor at that price would affect A9 sales negatively.

If Helio X10 doesn't justify it's price, then the A9 doesn't justify Apple's atrocious pricing too! Go, Go HTC! #quietlybrilliant
