The looks of this new phone is undeniably attractive, with Sense 7 on board navigation is smoother, it actually feels good without the glitches, crashes, or even reboots. Plus the Boomsound speakers that yield superior sound quality.
Yet, it does not have all the good qualities of a smartphone. It has a short battery life, however M9 has an Extreme Power Saving Mode that can help you with your battery if situation like that occurs, performance of the phone is compromised when it is set on that particular mode, and so it can be annoying. In terms of its camera the front-facing cam for selfies has it ways to do better job by simply flipping the fancy 4 UltraPixel camera around front. On the other hand the main camera of the HTC M9 needs improvement, it has a low-light and it is not a good thing because compared to other smartphones in the market there are much better smartphones that can give better result in terms of photo capture.
