A Peek HTC One M9

For all the HTC fans out there, the biggest relief perhaps was the launch of the One line of phones with its brilliant, sleek design that totally swept them off their feet. While the HTC One M9 doesn’t look significantly different from its predecessors, it does feature certain delicate enhancements that make you want to desperately possess one right away.

The best thing about HTC phones has always been that despite no major surprises, the devices manage to excite people across the world with their flawless execution. Sometimes looking at a HTC device, even those in the low-range, you wonder how much effort, compassion and love has been put into designing each part of the device. We remember the Desire range that totally blew audiences away with their fabulous design and the fact that there was nothing to complain about the performance either.

Coming back to the point in question, HTC One M9 is no different. The phone comes with a 32GB memory that is expandable up to a maximum of 128 GB with microSD. It is also expected to come out in a 64GB variant by the end of the year. The rear camera is a whopping 20MP with a sapphire glass over the lens; very slight redefinition of the design, in comparison to its predecessors. The phone is essentially designed for the perfect ‘feel’, a feature it inherited from the One M8, and also retains the sharp-edged design.


Under this beautifully designed sheet is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip and a 3GB RAM, offering just about enough power to run a range of apps, games and videos simultaneously. The screen specifications are not out of the world or seriously upgraded, but at 5 inches, 1080 pixels, it isn’t too much to complain about. The approximate dimensions would be 144 X 70 X 96 mm, and the weight would be just over 155 grams. The phone at present is available in two shades – silver and gold.

The Sense interface has retained its fan-base for a reason, and that reason is all the more strengthened, when you experience the UI in the One M9. With improved themes app, you can not only change backgrounds or colors, but also complete redo the look of the clock, textures, icons, sounds and fonts. It is truly a complete makeover, if you ask for it. The phone also retains its flagship audio system – Boomsound that now also comes with Dolby.


Unlike the M8 however, the M9 doesn’t feature the ‘Ultra pixel’ sensor, we guess, owing mostly to its bad market reception, but does feature a 20MP camera at the rear. The front camera too comes with a flash feature, making it more ‘selfie-friendly’. The OneGallery App helps collect, segregate and manages all your photographs for easy accessibility, and which can further be linked to your Dropbox, Facebook or Pinterest accounts as needed.

In the end, we really stick to what we said earlier. The M9 is a masterpiece of design and performance. It might not have features that surprise the wits out of you, but is classier, futuristic and as gimmick-free as it gets. Do you need more reasons to love it already?

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
