'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. .'
'There's plenty of power for daily tasks, a large screen to consume content and cameras that can offer some great shots, even if the high megapixel count doesn't immediately translate into the best results. '
'Bad. Bad battery life.'
'Plastic is glossy and easily gets smudged and scratched.'
'Not surprisingly, the phone is pretty darn responsive with an assortment of things, like gaming and simple navigation. '
'The HTC Butterfly 2 ticks most of the boxes for an Android flagship in 2014 - the Snapdragon 801 is still more than relevant, the camera has a sufficient amount of pixels, the display is of ample size and 1080p resolution. '
