HTC One A9 16GB Review

The One A9 is HTC’s new phone that is designed to mimic Apple’s iPhone 6S but with a number of iconic features having been omitted, it does not in any way earn the name ‘flagship’. The body is designed like the iPhone, with the entire body made from just glass and metal. The thickness of the frame together with the chamfered edges goes to show just how much alike it is with the Apple handset. So maybe Apple has been borrowing a few design tips from HTC phones every once in a while, but this, what HTC has done, cannot even be categorized as borrowing. In spite of all this, the HTC One is still a beautifully designed phone with the only problem being the omission of HTC’s iconic Boom Sound Stereo speakers. These speakers that are usually found at the front of all HTC phones, along the bottom, have been completely removed, probably because of the new design. In their place, HTC has put a single speaker at the bottom end of the phone. It has a 5 inch screen and its camera is more versatile and way better than the one in the One M9. The back side has a beautiful finish and is a little textured giving it a firmer grip.

 

The 5 inch display is covered in Gorilla Glass which gives the screen a longer life span. The glass, like in the iPhones, tapers as it moves from the center towards the edges. The AMOLED screen has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixel and while it is true HTC could have done a little more with the resolution, it is not as bad. The color contrast is good and so is the sun readability. The home key at the front of the phone has the added function of a fingerprint scanner. The scanner is remarkably fast and easy to use. It's probably also worth mentioning that the A9 also has a capacitive home key which might look unnecessary for most users since the physical home button is enough. The HTC logo is found just above the scanner and is definitely the first thing that distinguishes the A9 from an iPhone. The logo however is not the only distinguishing feature. The A9 has a micro SD slot, which means an expandable memory; a feature that iPhones do not have.

 

A9s sport a 13 mega pixel rear camera with a focus length of 2.0. The camera also has Optical Image Stabilization which is a good sign that HTC is finally putting some effort on the cameras it installs in its handsets. The OIS camera software together with Sony’s IMX214 sensor capture stunning pictures with incredible image quality.

 

The HTC One A9 is driven by Qualcomm Snap Dragon 617. This processor is quad core and work at a frequency of 1.5 Giga Hertz. It has a RAM of 3 GB though there are some models that sport a 2 GB RAM instead. The A9’s battery has a capacity of 2150 mAh which is not sufficient to last this phone an entire day of heavy use, but that was a compromise HTC chose to make in order to maintain a svelte design.

  • The Good :
    Expandable memory, good design, great camera
  • The Bad :
    Low battery capacity, unoriginal design
Our score:
4 / 5
