This smartphone is an important device in the One series phones produced by HTC. This smartphone was first announced in March, 2015. Later it went on to be released and made available in the market from April 10th, 2015. This smartphone was first discussed in the Mobile World Congress held on March 1st, 2015. The previous model in this series of HTC smart phones is the HTC One M8. The phone is known for its amazing audio quality and outer design. It also is known to come with good camera specifications.

Now let us look into its other technicalities in detail and thereby analyse its pros and cons.
HTC One M9 is similar in look and feel to its predecessor model. The variation though is that this model is thicker and narrow in comparison to the M8 smartphone. It comes with a protective IPX3 level protection against water and dust contaminations. It also comes with additional IP68 level shock resistance. It comes with a length of 144.6 mm and a breadth of 69.7 mm. It is pretty thick with 9.6 mm as its thickness and that makes the smartphone quite bulky and heavy. The thickness of this phone does not give it a premium look. Moreover due to its bulkiness it is not comfortably portable. The weight of this smartphone is 157 g. This smartphone comes with a Super LCD3 touch display with capacitive touch. The display has 16 M colour specification with an approximate screen to body ratio of 68 %. The size of the display in this smartphone is 5.0 inches. Hence, this smartphone is neither too small nor too large to hold. The screen resolution is around 1080 x 1920 pixels. The pixel density is 441 ppi. It comes with a good multi touch feature too. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. To ensure smooth touch interface, HTC Sense UI 7.0 is used. It comes in four colours namely Grey, Gold, Silver and Pink.
This smartphone uses the Android OS v 5.0 (Lollipop) for the basic functioning and monitoring of the processes. Later it is upgradable to v 6.0 (Marshmallow). The chip set used in this phone is Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810. The central processing is taken care of by a pair of Quad – core processors. One of them is a Cortex - A53 processor while the other is a Cortex – A57 type. The processing speed of each of these processors is 1.5 GHz and 2.0 GHz respectively. The graphics processing and control is carried out by an Adreno 430 GUI. Due to the presence of this superior quality processor, there will be no lag in performance, even when on heavy use. The internal storage capacity with which this smartphone comes is 32 GB. This is comfortably enough for any average user. But in case of a heavy user he might need more memory. To satisfy such users too, this smartphone comes with the option of expanding the memory externally using a microSD card up to a max of 200 GB. It comes with lots of RAM capacity that is of 3 GB.
