HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

CEO changes happen. Sometimes, the current head steps down for health or personal reasons. Sometimes, it's merely to give way to a younger generation. But on average, such high-level management shifts usually betray some problem that a company is scrambling to resolve, partly by changing the CEO.

HTC not upgrading One M7 to Android 5.1, and owners are mad

Today, HTC confirmed what many One M7 owners had been dreading. At two years old, the One M7 won’t see the Android 5.1 update, which is being built for their One M8 and One M9 smartphones. The reason for this shunning is likely HTC’s Sense Android overlay. HTC says the One M7 with Sense won’t see the Android 5.1 update, but the Google Play Edition of the same handset will. This split decision has not left many users happy, either.

HTC has big announcement coming for One M9

When T-Mobile sent out invitations for their next ‘uncarrier’ event, the mysterious language of the email blast got us thinking. Only telling us it was “a real piece of work”, we were left wondering what was going on. The company has given us plenty to be excited about with previous events, so we are expecting something impressive this time around as well.

When the HTC One M8 was launched, the company quickly pivoted their efforts to the mid-range market with the One E8. A plastic take on HTC’s metal flagship, the One E8 was basically a bargain One M8. It seems as though HTC is at it again, but is instead moving to branch the ‘One E’ family out. Pictures of a leaked HTC device, dubbed the One E9, have been making the rounds, along with some specs. This is no One M9 ripoff, though.

A listing for the One M9 has been discovered via an electronics retailers’ website, and gives a price tag of $649 for the HTC One M9. That’s a solid $50 more than what we heard last time.

There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet. HTC brought out their new smartphone for us to check out, but also slapped a fitness band on our wrist and VR headset on our face. But that wasn’t all! Here are some of our highlights from MWC 2015.
