For a couple of years now, the HTC handsets have been generally snappy, and the HTC One A9 is no exemption. The HTC One A9 is a mixture of a lot of HTC Company’s previous designs. As the polished sides reflect those of M9, the slight brushed texture there on the back of the device can be traced back to the M8 of 2014. Since the M7 was launched, HTC has being producing plastic antenna lines in metal phones.
The HTC One A9 is such a comfortable phone to hold and use. This phone is between the 5-inch screen curved metal edges. Interestingly, a 5-inch screen remains the great feature for many consumers who don’t want a gigantic Smartphone. It is huge enough for comfortable media consumption and browsing without being awkward.
The brightness and clarity of the A9’s screen is second to none, while the display itself is a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED panel. The panel of this Smartphone maxes out at 500 nits, according to HTC. Underneath the display feature is a single-touch fingerprint reader, like what you would get on an HTC One M9+ that equally serves as a derivative capacitive home key.
This HTC also features a logo squeezed in-between the screen and the fingerprint scanner, in such a way that makes the bottom part of the phone seem to be a little busy. There is also a single speaker on the bottom edge facing downward and this implies that the thin profile front-facing speakers are out of the question. In addition, the HTC BoomSound audio enrichments are added for the purpose of listening on headphones, while the producer has bundled support for 24-bit, 192 KHz high resolution audio — such as support for up-scaling lower-res content.
As far as colors are concerned, there is plenty of choice, just like preceding HTC One devices. The A9 will feature four different colors — cavernous garnet, opal silver, topaz gold, and carbon grey. According to HTC, the finish of the metal will be different a little, based on the particular color you pick up.
