When high powered smartphones are available from every manufacturer, how do you set yourself apart? If you happen to be HTC then you commit to manufacturing the most beautiful phones in the market every year.
On paper the One M9 may not be massively different from the other big name releases in 2015, however when you put it side by side you realise just why HTC have been winning global design awards for the last 3 years.
A commitment to high design
The One M9 has been developed to be more than just a tool. It is an expression of who you are and how you wish to be perceived by choosing an elegant accessory to your lifestyle.
Every One M9's framework has been cut from a single piece of aluminium - the overall production of a single M9 handset involves over 70 individual steps and 300 minutes. This 5 hour marathon session of manufacture includes a "jewellery-grade hairline finish" to create the 'brushed metal' look, plus hand-polishing from an experienced craftsman before the application of a scratch resistant coating.
The result of this labour of love is a smartphone with fewer components than before, less seams and identifiable edges, yet an increase in the ergonomics and grip for human use.
HTC Sense 7
Android 5.0 Lollipop is powering the the HTC One M9, however it is Sense 7 that you will be interacting with. Sense has long been the critic's choice of custom Android overlays and HTC continue their well-received work with this iteration.
The new HTC Themes app can provide a quick change of style at the push of a button, whilst analysing your favourite stored photos or using a chosen picture to provide a customised and personalised experience to apps and backgrounds.
Through location based information and learning your own preferences from use, a context-based widget for your homescreen is able to reconfigure and suggest apps that are useful for the moment.
HTC BlinkFeed returns to deliver relevant news and information from local points of interest. Visiting a new town or meeting friends ? Blinkfeed can suggest landmarks or well-reviewed restaurants. You might even pick up a dinnertime special offer!
After experimenting with their own Ultrapixel technology for the main cameras in the past two One devices, HTC have now shrunk and moved this technology to the front of the phone. In its place is an industry-leading 20.7 MP sensor for starkly detailed image capture.
The lens cover protrudes ever so slightly and features a sapphire lens cover to protect against scratches when in a pocket or resting. You can also record staggeringly detailed 4K video.
With the Ultrapixel technology in the front camera, you can achieve great results in low light. Going out for the night or trying to get a quick snap with only a side light on? With dynamic auto exposure and 300% higher light capture than standard camera sensors, the HTC One M9's new front-facing-camera is made for the selfie age.
Recently developed and showcased in the Desire Eye smartphone, the EYE Experience software helps make every picture a work of art. Choose a standard automatic mode, or pick from various effects to use during or after the shot. HTC Zoe works tirelessly in the background, editing pictures together by location or time and putting them to music, all customisable when you look back.
Finally the One Gallery has been developed to help find every picture you take on the HTC One M9. Whether they are stored on your phone, SD card, uploaded to social media or on select cloud storage services, One Gallery can find and display pictures taken from the M9, allowing your to save storage space by sharing and removing without ever worrying about being able to access them again from your phone.
Part of the One range's iconic design are the dual front-facing speakers. Utilising HTC BoomSound technology, the HTC speakers now combine with Dolby 5.1 channel Surround sound simulation.
You could be showing a friend a new music video, catching up on Netflix during your commute, or providing a centrepiece for gathering and the HTC One M9 will deliver high fidelity sound for all occasions.
Building on WiFi Direct technology, HTC Connect is activated by a 3 finger swipe down from the top of the screen. The Connect technology has been developed with Qualcomm's AllPlay media platform.
Thanks to this integration all smartphones with the tech (so other M9 devices or newer phones with Qualcomm processors) can share media and act as a single synchronised speaker. You can, also, effortlessly share wirelessly to HDTVs and other compatible technology such as select harman/kardon speakers and others.
Alongside all of the above the M9 is also a fully-featured modern smartphone with everything you could expect from that.
Dual band ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 with Low Energy, NFC, global LTE support, micro SD cards up to 128 GB, even Corning Gorilla Glass (4) screen protection.
Nothing important is missing from this smartphone, firing on all cylinders and looking ready to take on the world.
