'The M9 is an exceptional phone, but it's just not the best option out there. '
'However, this is still one of the best phones you can get and it just goes to show how far HTC has come in the last few years that we hold its products to such lofty standards. '
'All in all the HTC One M9 is a very desirable smartphone when held in the hand – easily one of the most desirable. '
'the M9 looks JUST like the M8, which is odd because anybody that’s being paying attention to HTC’s fortunes over the past couple of years knows it needs something BIG like the M7, not more incrementalism. .'
'It is big, bright, beautiful, and perfectly suitable for every task. '
'Thin and wide the overall impression is of ultimate portability, a robust handset with a nice if plasticky finish. '
'Image and video quality is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II, which is to say good but not as stunningly detailed as the S4. - Lastly, the phone has physical front buttons rather than capacitive.'
'Phone quality wise, the device is strong, with calls coming through crisp. '
