One of the biggest attraction on the HTC One M9 is its premium metal unibody. Each single HTC One M9 unit undergoes an intensely detailed CNC process that machines and polishes for an incredibly seamless build, followed by a double anodizing process for that premium finish.
The body of the phone has a gentle yet sophisticated curve that has become HTC's premium smartphone signature. The dual-tone finish allows for the sides of the phone to have a polished glow which also fits in the palm ergonomically. The camera is also covered with a layer of sapphire glass to protect against scratches.
HTC's signature BoomSound stereo speakers make a return in the HTC One M9. This time HTC has partnered with the one of the audio pioneers, Dolby to further improve the already awesome BoomSound stereo speakers. Dolby enhancements can be activated and turned on so that the speakers deliver unique virtual surround sound to you, either through the speakers or through headphones. You'll have to believe your eyes because you won't believe how good it sounds.
Without the enhancements, the BoomSound speakers offer true stereo channels to immerse you in your music. Rich sounds carry out from the speakers, supported by lower end frequencies otherwise unachievable by the conventional smartphone speaker.
The HTC One M9 promises great pictures, from both the front camera and the rear camera. On the backside, the camera is a 20 megapixel camera with a f/2.2 27.8mm lens which captures amazing pictures with great clarity. It is also able to record video in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
The front camera is HTC's UltraPixel camera with bigger light pixels that can capture more light in low-light selfies and group shots. Your selfies will look like they're shot with a proper camera on the HTC One M9's UltraPixel camera.
With a beautiful body like the HTC One M9, a little protection goes a long way. The HTC Dot View case offers minimalistic protection with a protective cover that doubles as an interactive screen. Lights from the screen project 8-bit like icons and animations through the cover, allowing you to control the phone and see what notifications are awaiting you – all this without opening the phone.
