HTC A9 First Impressions! - Sprint Product Ambassadors



WOW this is a beautiful device. From the HTC M7 til now HTC is, IMO, has the best looking hardware around. I love the feel of the A9 and having

What I really like about the device:

  • Camera - OIS & Raw format, Hyper-Lapse option
  • Finger print reader - crazy fast and accurate
  • Battery life - really impressed with the battery life on this device
  • Textured Home Button - this is a nice change and helps you to identify the home button buy feel.
  • Unlock the device with the screen off - probably one of my favorite features that you don't have to wake the device up to unlock it
  • Android Marshmallow - really like this and also like that HTC kept it pretty close to stock Android with some HTC Sense sprinkled in.

What I don't care for on the device right now

  • Brightness, you can pull down from the notifications and adjust via the slider but you have to go into Settings>Display>Brightness and uncheck "Auto" if you don't want to use it.
  • As much as I love the design the device is very slick and if you don't put a case on it right away it's only a matter of time before a quick slip can do some damage.
  • I miss the dual front facing speakers but I understand that is apart of the M series devices (but I would still like to have it! :-))
