HTC One A9 : Available In Christmas Special Offer Only In HTC Authorised Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur
When HTC announced its new flagship smartphone, the HTC One A9, everyone had a good laugh saying that it’s a copy of Apple’s iPhone 6s. But the company was bold enough to trash such claims.
In fact, even we were pretty much convinced that it’s an Android cousin of the Apple iPhone 6s – till we finally laid our hands on the One A9.
HTC is known for making some quality products in the past. Their innovations are, most of the times, more original than their competitors. Plus their devices always had a premium and plush look and feel to them.
HTC One A9 is the first non-Google smartphone in India to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box. The first two to come were the Google Nexus 5x and Nexus 6P. That makes the HTC One A9 the most updated smartphone to retail in the country.
The use of all metal design is premium and it’s lightweight too at just 143 grams. The 5.0-Inch Full HD AMOLED display is bright, sharp and just the right size for single hand usage. It’s edge to edge display gives the phone it’s thin bezels that add to the character of this device. And it charges fast too, as it supports Quick charge 2.0 technology.
Performance on the HTC One A9 is smooth as silk. The 1.5GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 617 Processor is backed by 3GB RAM and even if you throw a kitchen sink at this phone it won’t budge.
Gaming performance is what you expect from a high-end smartphone and multitasking is something it can do without any hassles. The best part is that this phone does not heat up at all while charging or while playing games.
The 13-megapixel rear camera on the HTC One A9 is not the best snapper in town, but definitely better than the phones offered in this price range like Motorola Moto X Style. The rear camera comes with a sapphire cover lens, a BSI sensor, Optical image stabilisation (OIS) and 1080p video recording capabilities. All of which work seamlessly.
The 2150 mAh battery on paper is less for this smartphone, but to our surprise it lasted for more than 30 hours on our device. That has a lot to do with Android Marshmallow’s power saving mode too.
