HTC One M9 Plus review: Plus and minus

 

The HTC One M9 was met with a muted response. HTC's efforts in refining design felt like a distraction and the new flagship felt like it was slightly adrift, facing completion from all sides. The HTC One M9+ is an improvement on the regular One M9 in a...

Great quality build, decent display, mature user interface with Sense 7 benefits, fingerprint scanner

Weak camera, average battery life, lacks fast charging, MediaTek graphics handling

The HTC One M9+ is an improvement on the regular One M9 in a number of areas. It runs cooler with barely any difference in the daily experience when it comes to performance. The battery life is similar or better, despite the boosted display, but the...

HTC One M9+ review

 

The phone the One M9 should have been?

Fingerprint sensor works flawlessly ; Bigger, prettier 2K screen ; Lost none of the M9's design chops

Cameras still not on par with rivals ; Sluggish with multi-tasking and processor hungry games

A levelling-up over the "standard" M9, the M9+ is the HTC to get - but the Galaxy S6 still trumps it

HTC One E9+ vs HTC One M9+ comparison

 

There are currently no technical specifications recorded for this product.

On the specs alone the HTC One M9+ is clearly the better phone in this comparison, and its higher price attests to that. We're drawn to the M9+ because it is the M9 we wanted to see unveiled at MWC, with a Quad HD screen and fingerprint scanner. But as...

HTC One M9+ ramps up screen resolution and scans your fingers

 

The HTC One M9 is still warm from the production line but already HTC has a new variant to tempt you with. Called the One M9+, this phone maintains the beautiful all-metal design of the standard M9, but makes a few key tweaks.

We'll see exactly how this new variant stacks up against its rivals -- not to mention the standard One M9 -- in the full review soon.

HTC One M9+ Review

 

Stuck in a downward spiral for what seems like an eternity, troubled Android phone maker HTC has been actively diversifying its portfolio this year. Sure, there was the mandatory One M9 flagship, as well as a bunch of Desire mid-rangers, but we've also...

Nice, metal design ; Decent stereo speakers ; Sense UI is coherent

Inaccurate screen color balance ; User experience needs more work ; Average camera quality ; Troublesome call quality

It's hard to understand what HTC has in mind with the One M9+. Perhaps the key is in the name of the device? The 'plus' should mean it's a better/bigger version of the M9, right? However, that is not entirely true.

HTC One M9 Plus Review- Past and Furious

 

This year's HTC flagship needed a far more resilient spec sheet and components than this; it's just riding on its successful design of the past, mated to the furious boom sound and Quad HD display.

Strong metal body ; Amazing Dolby audio ; Fast camera

Lags in gaming ; Heats up ; Average camera quality ; Low battery backup

HTC One M9+ comes out to be the best video watching phone in its category. It’s amazing audio experience, viewing experience on Quad HD screen and dual Wi-Fi streaming makes watching videos a leisurely experience. The phone compromises on ergonomics to...
