HTC One A9


HTC phones once had a reputation for being superb – but this feels like a long time ago now. The A9 is HTC's attempt to recover some lost ground.

Rich and colourful screen ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Runs latest Android

A blatant iPhone rip-off ; Woeful battery life ; Badly overpriced

HTC One A9 review


HTC's latest handset boasts decent specs and an enjoyable picture and sound performance...

Enjoyable picture and sound performance ; Latest Android features ; Great camera ; Elegant build and design

Screen could be more dynamic ; Sound could have more insight and precision ; Only Full HD resolution ; Camera snaps could look more realistic

An iPhone lookalike with the latest Android specs – the HTC A9 is an appealing smartphone that tries to please everyone

HTC One A9 review: Could it be magic?


If there's one trend that's emerged in 2015, it's that the mid-range or sub-flagship category of Android phones is arguably more exciting than those right at the top. We love the HTC One A9 and we think it's the most exciting handset HTC has launched...

Design, build, lighter Sense UI, launches on Android 6 Marshmallow, fast fingerprint scanner, impressive battery life

Camera not the best, display could be better, flagship price for a mid-level handset

We love the HTC One A9 and we think it's the most exciting handset HTC has launched in 2015. We'd pick it over the M9 because it has charm that the flagship lacks.

HTC One A9 review


The world's best iPhone impersonator

High-contrast AMOLED screen ; Feels great ; Much-improved camera versatility ; Great finger scanner

Yes, it looks like an iPhone ; Expensive in the UK ; Max one-day battery life

iPhone copy or not, this is a top mid-range phone. Pity it sells at a top-end price.

HTC One A9 review


The iPhone with the brains of an Android

Improved camera ; Awesome design ; Good Marshmallow mix

Battery life too poor ; Some rattling in case ; Cost too high

To compare this too much to an iPhone would be unfair to the genuinely impressive power under the hood - but it's curious that HTC has decided on this design path.

HTC One A9 review: Impressive – but a touch behind the best smartphones of 2016


The One A9 is a great phone with a superb screen and camera, but it's too expensive to compete with other flagships

The only real sticking point is the price. At £470-420 SIM-free it's up against the now hugely competitive Samsung Galaxy S6 , LG G4 and Sony Xperia Z5 Compact , all of which are faster and have better battery lives. In this light, it's not...

HTC One A9 review: The latest Android software comes at too high a price


Even with Marshmallow onboard, the HTC One A9's high price means this midrange mobile doesn't impress.

The HTC One A9 is among the first smartphones to launch with the latest Android Marshmallow operating system onboard, you can expand the storage with microSD cards, its camera takes decent shots and it boasts a metal body.

It's grossly overpriced, comparable in specs and performance to midrange phones costing far less.

HTC's One A9 is just fine for a midrange device, but for its astonishingly high full retail price, you can buy much more powerful, better overall phones.

HTC One A9 hands-on review


A fingerprint scanner, 13Mp camera and Android 6.0 Marshmallow

iPhone looks aside, the One A9 is a really nice new device from HTC. We like the thin and light design, especially in red, and the addition of a fingerprint scanner. Specs are good all-round with the rear camera looking to be the highlight but we need...

HTC One A9 Review: In Depth


HTC One A9 Review (In Depth): We review HTC's latest 2015 5-inch phone, the One A9, which boasts a fingerprint sensor and 13-megapixel camera

Attractive, curvy design ; Camera supports RAW ; Bags of storage ; Marshmallow

Tiny battery ; no BoomSound ; Too expensive

The One A9 has plenty of appealing features including a very impressive fingerprint sensor, that vibrant, gorgeous screen and attractive iPhone-apeing design. Sadly it’s not all rainbows and glitter, with a camera that’s beaten by rivals and battery...
