HTC One A9 Review


The HTC One A9 is a beautiful, all-metal piece of tech. On its front, it has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, bringing its pixel density up to 440 ppi, accompanied by a fingerprint sensor at the bottom. Under its hood, there is a 64-bit midrange-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 humming with 4 of its cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and the other 4 – at 1.2 GHz. The phone will be available in two variants – one with 32 GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM, while the second will have 16 GB of storage and just 2 GB of RAM. Both variants will accept microSD cards for expansion purposes. The One A9 rocks a 13 MP sensor for its rear camera, assisted by optical image stabilization and the selfie snapper employs HTC signature UltraPixel technology to provide superior performance in low-light scenarios. Android Marshmallow 6.0 is preinstalled out of the box and a 2150mAh battery is keeping the lights running.

Overall a complete package from HTC!
Phone owned for less than 3 months

I recently decided to try a new phone manufacturer since I have been using Samsung devices for my last couple phones and I have to say I am not disappointed. I prefer HTC's metal phones over any glass phone anyday and having an AMOLED display is another plus in my book. However this phone does not come without its flaws such as the abysmal battery life (worse than the Galaxy S6 which says something) and mediocre camera performance. I also have had the occasional stutters but that is common on midrange devices. I managed to snag this phone for around ~$200 USD brand new and I would say that that is a hell of a deal. If you could find this phone for around that price I would definitely recommend it however its original retail price is $499 USD which is definitely overpriced. If you can find this phone for ~$250 USD or less I would say go for it.

BSP! Best Smart Phone!
Phone owned for less than 3 months

The design and build quality is top notch HTC has it on the latest update 6.0.1 and what other device besides a Nexus. Boomsound through headset is nice (just equalizer trick) but it sounds good. The A9 have great and easy to use camera with O.I.S., it has Great build quality and this phone have FDD and TDD LTE. Great display and sound so it pretty great for surfing internet and all multimedia stuff, Great for calling,good battery life etc. colors, screen, I love everything from this phone, is very customizable. I bought a cellphone for my wife too, drop it from the stair during the first week and received a new phone the next day, customer service is the best.
