The HTC One A9 was released earlier this year and was a good phone. However, there seemed to be something missing and it could not do justice to the kind of sales the company was expecting out of the design.
However, now, the company has come up with the predecessor of the phone, the HTC One X9. This phone has all the features that would be able to label it as a flagship device.
This was something the company had not been able to do earlier; over the past six months HTC had troubles coming up with a phone that was perfect for a masses – a mid-range phone, with great features and great looks.
It seems like the company has not hit upon an excellent design to for a smartphone and expectedly, it will sell better than the first one.
The HC One A9 is not a bad phone. Its major features include a 1080 p resolution in an HD AMOLED 5 inch screen, which is covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass and a metal glass body.
The phone has a curvy look, a super thin design and comes in wonderful colors. The OS in the phone is Android Marshmallow 6.0. It is the first phone after Nexus to come with this version of the OS.
The phone is made more powerful with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with integrated X8 LTE and 64-bit octa-core CPU, 3GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory which can be expanded to 2 TB with the help of a MicroSD card.
The only thing that the company could have enhanced in the phone is the battery.
The phone comes with a 2150mAh battery, that supports Quick charging, but things could have been much better if there was a stronger battery to make up for the power hungry huge screen.
Nevertheless, the battery backup is not very bad because the Android marshmallow 6.0’s power management skills.
The HTC One X9 on the other hand is larger – it has a 5.5 inch screen, a 1080P resolution and a corning glass coating on the screen. It is more powerful than the A9 and has a 3000mAh battery unit.
The phone, just like its predecessor has a 3GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory and expandable to 2TB. The phone supports the use of a dual SIM and 4G LTE.
The camera is similar to the A9, a 13MP real camera and a 4 MP ultra pixel front camera.
The phone is larger than the A9 and the best part is that it is cheaper than the A9, which makes it more easily affordable by the people.
