amazon HTC One M9 reviews
Overall, the form of the One M9 is no different than the One M8, but if the scrutiny, the new version has some very notable tweak. Body length is shorter, narrower width and slightly lighter weight than previous generations. This brings a touch of hands holding small and more compact.
The edge and the back side is where most changes on the One M9. The problem is the power button on the top of the M8 press harder HTC has been remedied by putting the switch to the right side on the M9, located near the volume keys. But slightly lower power button, or press the volume down button by mistake during use. Two volume buttons are separated, no longer a button on the One M8 as should look better. The mechanical keys are cut very short, delicate and has a good bounce.
At the back, the secondary camera on the One M8 is gone, replaced by a large 20.7MP camera squares covered with scratch-resistant sapphire convex surface and approximately 1 mm, convex less than the Galaxy S6 so little attention than.
One M9 front of the border is no longer 2 more plastic, so only as a monolithic sheet looks more simple and seamless. But the worst point in the design of the M9 M8 persist on the black border with HTC logo below the screen remains, reduces the aesthetic in front of the machine.
One M9 usability has been improved: slimming machines and just hand over, feeling clinging holding hands and the power button to switch to the right side more easily with your hands placed on top of the camera click. Overall, the One M9 no different than the One M8, especially when viewed through the eyes of ordinary users. But this is still one of the few most beautiful smartphone design today.
Screen and sound
HTC One M9 continues to maintain the old generation screen: 5-inch, Super LCD3 technology (actually IPS LCD) Full-HD resolution with a pixel density of 441 PPI. The screen with gloves mode (used when wearing gloves), light sensor to adjust brightness automatically according to ambient light and the glass is Gorilla Glass protecting its new 4th generation Corning.
HTC did not rush to upgrade 2K resolution as competitors. But also to say that in the 5-inch size, the higher resolution Full-HD is really not necessary because the difference with 2K resolution is insignificant and barely recognizable to most people. Meanwhile, high resolution will cause greater pressure and drain the battery performance.
When evaluated with the naked eye, M9 screen displays crisp, high brightness, color temperature color fresh and warm. Screen is not reflective, so it may look better outdoors. Screen viewing angle is also quite wide, equivalent but less Xperia Z3 Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

When you open the speakerphone, One M9 has two sound mode BoomSound: music mode and theater mode.

When listening ear plugs attached, the machine has 4 modes BoomSound different sound modes for headphones include regular (earbud), earbuds (in-ear), HTC Pro Studio (headphones sold separately HTC) and Other modes. Regarding sound quality, dual-mode and in-ear sound quality Other according to our evaluation is better, the sound has depth and clearer separation.
Camera is the One M9 major changes after 20.7MP camera and front camera 4MP UltraPixel, along with the ability to shoot 4K resolution but no optical image stabilization (OIS) as the camera on the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Camera interface remains simple design on the M8 with 6 modes: selfie from the previous camera, camera, panorama (panorama), shooting delete fonts (bokeh), taken many collage and photo shots in succession (from front camera). HTC has equipped the M mode (manual) with more custom related to quality (white balance, clearing light, ISO, focus range) and the exposure time to 2 seconds.
In addition, the M9 also has added a new photo editing application (the editor) to process images after shooting. This application supports features basic photo editing (crop, rotate, red-eye treatment, framed …) and some interesting effects like shaders, changed face.
The image quality, M9 shutter speed and focus as fast as the competition. When shooting in good lighting environment, the machine produces images with good quality. Image clarity, sharpness and more.
With the front camera, the situation has changed. UltraPixel 4MP camera ahead of the One M9, once used as a rear main camera on the One M8 and M7 generation, creating unsurpassed take a selfie picture when compared with competitors. Photographs from previous camara One M9 represents the standard colors, sharp with great detail.

Sense 7 has the same interface Sense 6 on M8, looks simple, airy app tray, intuitive settings and also Blinkfeed synthesis of information from social networks (Facebook, Flickr, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn , Tumblr, Twitter) and the electronic media
One other interesting feature is the self-regulatory Home Sense widget apps on the home screen based on the user’s location, for example when the plant will display a set of applications and the company will have 1 set other. One M9 also has a number of new applications such notable Fun Fit to track physical activity (count the number of steps, distance and calories burned daily …) or Peel Smart Remote to turn the machine remote control for multiple devices (TVs, projectors, DVD players, air conditioners, Blu-ray …).
