Overview

The One A9S is a great all rounder when it comes to a mid-tier handset that provides great specifications and design for a reasonable price. HTC have delivered their considerable camera tech into this device and provided 2 cameras for you to capture all types of shots with. Then to view the images you capture the A9S has a crisp 5 Inch HD display so all your media is crystal clear.

Design

The HTC One A9S is built with a dual finish metal body which is committed to durability and design. The chassis has been put through its paces by HTC as well, withstanding hundreds of drop and scratch tests, and hundreds of hours of extreme weather testing. This means you don’t have to worry about those accidental drops or scrapes and there is no compromise on design.

The One A9S also comes with a 5 Inch HD display so all your media will look great with fantastic colour reproduction and viewing angles. The screen is Corning Gorilla glass which means that the chances of it scratching or breaking from small drops are dramatically lower.

Camera

Taking great pictures on a smartphone is very important and the One A9S certainly has the hardware to make this possible. A 13MP main camera with autofocus technology ensures each image you capture is crystal clear which means no more blurry images.

Also included is a 5MP front facing camera which can take stunning selfies and also record in full HD resolution. This makes it perfect for video calls and using services like Skype or Google Duo.

Performance

A rewarding smartphone experience starts under the hood with the processor and the HTC One A9 comes with a MediaTek Octa-Core 64 Bit processor. With this power under the hood, you won’t have any problems multitasking and your phone will be able to keep up with your lifestyle.

HTC have also added their own tweaks with Boost+, an app to ensure your phone is in tip top condition. This HTC application is able to dynamically allocate resources to maximise battery life and make the software experience much more fluid. It also de-clutters your device by clearing out temporary files and prompts you about apps that you haven’t used in awhile.

Security

Protecting the data on your device is so important as the information stored on our smartphones is very valuable. Therefore a strong layer of security is needed and a fingerprint sensor provides this as it ensures only you can access your device. The One A9S comes with a super fast fingerprint reader to provide you with instant access and security. You can also use it to unlock protected apps that are locked via HTC’s Boost+ application.
