HTC One M9: Australian Hands-On

HTC One M9: Australian Hands-On

Just because it looks the same as the last one, doesn’t mean it has to work the same as the last one, right? Here’s hoping. We’ve been hands on with the “luxurious” new HTC One M9 to find out.

BlinkFeed’s newest upgrades to feed your mind with news, body with food recommendations from leading culinary apps and soul with friend updates is actually really great. I rolled my eyes when I heard it, but it basically just means BlinkFeed is getting better at connecting you with stuff you care about.

The camera is where it’s really going to shine, in my opinion. Ultrapixel was a great idea, but I’m so glad it has moved to the front-facing camera and not on the rear-facing unit anymore. It took a great shot, but doing any kind of zoom on photos taken at a resolution of 4-megapixels was painful. Now you have a whopping 20-megapixels to use, which is great.

We’ll learn more about the device in the review, but right now it feels like the phone we know and love all grown up.
