HTC released the HTC One M9+ in May this year. It is the successor of the HTC One M9, which was previously released last year. It consists of a number of new features in its disposal. The HTC One M9+ is a phone packed with a 5.2-Inch touch screen, qHD with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. The colors appear more vibrant, and the screen’s content looks sharp. The viewing angles are satisfactory, and a person can see the screen well when using in daylight. The Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is used for better protection of the screen. The phone is priced at $999 approx.
The HTC One M9+ comes with a curved aluminum back, along with two-toned finish trim, just like the HTC One M9. A notable change in the HTC One M9+ is the presence of a physical button. It makes its way below the screen of the phone. The physical button, just like Apple and Samsung, supports fingerprint recognition. One can tap on the sensor to wake up the phone, and a single gesture can be used to unlock the phone. These features can be used by people who are not familiar with the G4’s power/lock button on the back.
The Boom Sound speakers are present alongside the physical button and offers great sound production. The sound output of this phone is one of the loudest you will ever hear of any phone, however that does not mean that the sound is not crisp. The vocals are clear, without any presence of noise.
Higher Specs For Better Performance
The HTC One M9+ is powered by a MediaTek MT6795T Octa-Core processor. Clocked at a whooping 2.2 Ghz, it promises a premium and endless gaming experience, with no halt in the user experience. The phone works flawlessly, and multi-tasks smoothly thanks to its 3 GB Ram, which is becoming a standard for all the new high-end phones, along with 32 GB of Internal memory, which is further extendable to 128 GB of memory via a memory card.
The phone is packed with a 2840 mAh battery for increased battery life. However, when tested, the battery life does not prove to be as satisfactory as promised. The phone’s battery also gets heated very quickly when playing HD videos and playing graphic-extensive games.
The phone consists of a 20MP rear depth-sensing camera, along with a dual LED, which is promised to give DSLR like quality, and a 4-UltraPixel front-facing camera for taking the perfect selfies. The phone’s camera app supports two modes, Duo-Camera and High res mode.
The Duo camera mode allows the users to capture additional depth information and adjust the depth of the photo taken afterwards. Moreover, this mode allows a lot of extra features such as the face fusion, which blends in two faces, shape and pattern overlays, double exposure and faux 3D shift effect.
The High-Res mode takes full advantage of the 20 MP camera, and offers high quality images. However, some of the shots capture way more light than intended, and night shots are not too good.
Both the front and rear camera can record videos at 1080p, but face the same problem as increased brightness.
1. Full HD display with 5.2-inch screen makes the viewing experience excellent.
2. 3GB RAM gives a lag free user experience during heavy gaming.
3. Memory section Expandable up to 2TB.
1. Non-removable battery with a weak charging rate.
2. Front shooter disappoints in many conditions.
3. Customer care service of HTC is not up to the mark in INDIA, makes the manufacturer smartphone user sad always.
