First impressions of the HTC One A9: The iPhone 6s for Android.

The newest flagship from HTC, the HTC One® A9, is stunningly thin with best-in-class features, from audio to imaging, and the newest Android Marshmallow software and capabilities including Android Pay and Now on Tap SEATTLE, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The HTC One A9, the newest member of the HTC One family and one of the first devices available with the new Android Marshmallow software, is available nationwide in stores and online at AT&T and Sprint beginning today.

The smartphones share striking design ethic, separated by the shape of the home-button fingerprint sensor, placement of the rear-facing camera, and left-side SIM and microSD card slots.Last month, HTC unveiled a new phone, One A9, in the US, but got panned across all sections of the media for blatant use of Apple iPhone 6 series’ design language in the device. However, the company was quick to dismiss the doubts and said that it was in fact Apple which borrowed the idea of a metal design from the Taiwanese company. While this would be fine in general, I suspect many of us will notice a distinct similarity between this commercial and a number of other commercials, including one filmed three decades ago, in which a troublemaker tears down the status quo in order to sell consumer electronics. Anyone looking for an unlocked phone can pick it up from for $500—although it’s still available for $400 until midnight on Saturday, November 7 (Friday night).

The theme of it is a familiar one, turning the tables of Apple’s famous “1984” commercial and presenting the iPhone as the boring, gray, generic thing that everyone uses and does. To reiterate that Apple is an idea borrower and wants people to conform to its closed environment, HTC is now out with a brand new commercial for its One A9, which, quite evidently mocks the Cupertino giant’s 1984 ad for the Macintosh. HTC is giving customers even greater freedom with a special SIM Unlocked edition for $499.99 on that allows you to pop-in a SIM for a compatible network1, change carriers2 at will, or to unlock the bootloader without voiding your warranty. In the poster, we see the title — “HTC One X9, pursuit of brilliance” — with the device’s front display panel having caption – “packed with City smarts”. [Check-out the flyer, HERE] The new HTC device boasts 5.0-inch QHD display with 2560x1440p resolution and also features 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 128GB), 23MP primary camera on the rear-side, 4MP snapper on the front, dual BoomSound front speakers and a 3500 mAh battery. HTC’s Uh Oh Protection entitles you to one free replacement within the first 12 months of device ownership due to issues such as a cracked screen or water damage.

Of course, this being 2015, HTC has amped up the Apple digs with some expert parkour action (why!?), identikit mannequins (aka dummies) sat around a runway-length dining table, and a pyramidal structure made up of white-painted apples. If there is truth in marketing, HTC’s tag lines reveal much: “Design worth imitating”, which while referring the company’s One legacy also could be interpreted as backhanded praise or even fist-to-snub about Apple’s device, which some could argue imitates earlier One models. “Power to choose” – customisation and personalisation options not offered on fruit-logo handsets.

But the commercial takes an entirely new level of mockery when at one stance the youth enters a room with a white dinner table laid out with white apples and surrounded by mannequins dressed in white. The spot opens with an unnamed hero running through a dystopian environment while scores of expressionless men and women — all dressed alike — march in lock-step around him. In his continued effort to ‘be loud’ and bold, the youth kicks away the apples and moves out into the world of freedom (Android 6.0 Marshmallow). A new multi-directional fingerprint scanner seamlessly integrates with the classic uni-body design and unlocks your phone and a world of possibilities, such as Android Pay, with a press of a finger.

Firstly Qualcomm is yet to officially unveil Snapdragon 820 and if it does get unveiled this month, the chipset will only be made available to devices slated to be release in 2016. The impact on you at home: HTC’s latest addition to the One line-up is a beautifully-designed phone, but you’ll want to read our review of the One A9 before you decided to blow $500 on it. Secondly, HTC is most likely to use Snapdragon 820 for its original flagship series HTC One M10 series, which is expected to debut anytime between February and March. A range of unique accessories are available at as well, including the award-winning HTC Dot ViewTM case, HTC Pro Studio Earphones and the HTC Rapid Charger 2.0. The innards are decidedly mid-range, HTC’s Sense UI makes less sense in Google’s material design world, and it comes packed with “interest-based ads” delivered by HTC.

Every aspect, from the circuit board design to the placement of each electrical component, reduces sound interference and minimizes possible distortion. The built-in DAC produces outstandingly clean, noise-free audio, while the DSP converts and up-scales 16-bit audio to 24-bit 192KHz audio automatically4. The handset comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which means you can designate the phone’s microSD slot as extra internal storage, allowing more space for easy app installs. Price is another benefit: $399 for a limited time before going up to $499. iPhone 6s with same storage capacity sells for $749 – both phones unlocked and contract-free. The handset’s microSD slot supports up to 2TB of additional storage, but keep in mind that designating an SD card as internal storage has some trade-offs, as described by Liliputing.

The 13MP rear-facing camera with built-in OIS (optical image stabilization) compensates for hand shake and vibrations for the perfect shot every time. Taken in bright light or outdoors, selfies look good no matter what camera you use, but taken in the evening or indoors, they can face challenging lighting conditions. The UltraPixel front-facing camera delivers the best self-portraits in any lighting condition by capturing 300% more light than conventional smartphone cameras. We also added enhanced algorithms, advanced processing, and dynamic auto exposure to deliver high quality, natural looking results regardless of the light condition. By comparison, the similar looking iPhone 6s: 4.7-inch LCD display (1334 x 750 resolution); Apple A9 chip; 16, 32, 64, or 128GB storage (depending on model) and non-expandable; 12MP f/2.2 front and 5MP f/2.2 front cameras.

Doze automatically turns off power hungry applications when your phone is left idle, such as when charging overnight, while App Standby knows when an app open in the background isn’t being used and shuts it down until you need it again. As a global innovator in smart mobile devices and technology, HTC has produced award-winning products and industry firsts since its inception in 1997, including the critically acclaimed HTC One and HTC Desire lines of smartphones.
