HTC is finally breaking its IFA 2016 silence, but the noise it is making might not fall on receptive ears. As speculated before, the Taiwanese manufacturer has unveiled the HTC One A9s, the follow-up to one of last year’s most notorious smartphones, the One A9. While by no means a terrible smartphone, the HTC One A9 was primarily seen as one of the most blatant iPhone 6 ripoffs. The HTC One A9s is, for better or worse, carrying on that tradition. But rather oddly, it also seems to do worse than its precursor in some cases, leaving an even more mixed bag in the market.
