HTC One M9 – this is the new flagship of the Taiwanese people! The presented at MWC 2015 smartphone impresses with high-quality aluminum, current software and individuality. Nevertheless, there are grounds for criticism – read more read in our first test.

Ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2015, the largest mobile Esse, HTC has its current flagship One M9 presented to the public. The Taiwanese remain faithful to their design, improve the hardware but almost anywhere.

Handling and Display: 5 inch further

Visually similar to the One M9 its two predecessors. As a basic HTC called the recognition value. Sure, that makes sense from a marketing perspective, of course, but there comes a dull moment. Although the smartphones of One series are among the most stylish and wertigsten mobile devices.

The One M9 is reminiscent of the first one, since the direct predecessor was too round and too slippery so – now there are again more corners and edges. The aluminum case is high-quality, making the phone comfortable in the hand – only the edge of the frame is somewhat annoying.

Speaking Setting: In the silver version of this is available in gold, so he makes a beautiful accent to the rest of the phone.

Compared to its predecessor, the housing has become smaller, while the display with 5 inches in diagonal image remains the same – the benefits of haptics. The resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD) remains unchanged. HTC sees no added value of QHD in size since the human eye anyway no longer recognizes individual pixels – a higher resolution would mean only an additional burden on the computational power and battery. This is what we could to test the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy determine Touch 4. Here HTC gets it right!

The Super LCD 3 seems quite bright in the first test, the angle of view is very wide, in which neither the contrast and color change.

When the engine is HTC One M9 the new Octa-core Snapdragon processor 810 with 64 bit Qualcomm – 4 cores work with 2, the other with 1.5 GHz clock. Supportive comes a 3 GB of RAM used.

Because the M9 works alongside this performance with latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, we can find no annoying delays in the first practice test. Benchmark tests we could not do because the final software was not installed yet – we bring in our detailed review after course.

The hotel provides Internet access either via Wi-ac or LTE Cat6 (up to 300 Mbit / s download). In the first test the web pages load quickly, even navigating works fine. Incidentally, the M9 supports all LTE bands and frequencies, which is why you are traveling with high bandwidth worldwide.

Mobility: battery permanently installed

The current capacity of the donor increases to 2840 mAh, whereby the battery life due to the same screen size as its predecessor will probably be longer – but that will only show the correct test.
