hTC One A9 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of hTC One A9 at a Glance:-

We have found a Smartphone from the hTC with minimum disadvantages in the mid range segment with preloaded Android Marshmallow OS. Handset performing well in all of its department that has Snapdragon 617 1.5 GHz processor, 5.0 inches AMOLED capacitive display, 13 and 4 MP ultra-pixel camera, 32 GB ROM with 2  TB Ext. SD card support and 2150 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of hTC One A9.

They have created the phone design in such that the back side of the phone looks like the Apple iPhone 6S plus and the front display matching the Samsung Galaxy S6. The phone is built on the Aluminium metal with unibody design, hTC removed its traditional top-bottom speaker design, and overall phone feels compact to hold. There are two slots on the left for a microSD and SIM cards. The power and the volume rocker keys are available on the right side. USB charging, single loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm audio jack fixed on the bottom of the phone.
The 5.0 inches AMOLED screen is specialized with the 1080x1920 pixels resolutions and the 441 ppi of display density. AMOLED display technology is energy efficient and shows more natural colours. The pictures quality reflected by the display is quite sharp and pleasant. It has Ambient light sensor which automatically adjust brightness of the display. We are happy to see Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for making its display protected from scratches. 
hTC One A9

hTC One A9 is powered with Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 Octa-core CPU clocked in 1.5 GHZ; which is an power efficient processor, along with 3 GB RAM. We observe that the combination (Marshmallow + Snapdragon 617 + 3 GB RAM) working so perfectly in this handset resulting into a great smooth and lag free multitasking performance, it is producing least heating as compared to many handsets of this range while playing heavy games. hTC One A9 falls under mid ranger so as according to its price the Smartphone is quite sufficient to perform day to day tasks.
Its 13 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) beating many of 16 MP camera counterpart smartphones, and same applied for front facing 4 MP HTC UltraPixel.
The picture taken from primary camera shows vivid and true natural colours, we have checked some low light photographs, for such condition camera sensor did a good job recognizing colour difference.  For the photography hTC One A9 will not disappoint you.
In our previous post we saw a huge 5000 mAh battery on Lenovo VIBE P1, now this phone has 2150 mAh but still battery delivering a good backup of more than a day for a moderate user.
