Though the market is currently inundated with Android smartphones that market themselves as the end-all device, offering features not found in other phones or promoting said features are done better with their new model. Often times these phones are quite similar to one another, not offering any significant differences outside of their lesser-tier models. HTC, the industry giant from Taiwan, has broken the mold again by releasing a phone that touts itself as the finest Android phone released this year, and it may just be a very honest statement. Take a look at the HTC One A9, which we believe is the current phone on the market to beat. With sleek construction, fluid function and elegance combined with simplicity, It’s very hard to look past this phone while considering other models from HTC or otherwise.
just like many other heavy-hitting devices coming out close to this holiday season, the One A9 certainly does not fail to deliver on it’s promise of offering superior specifications and features. Out of the box, users will be treated with a complete solution for business, entertainment and communication. Whether you wish to take high quality photos/video, manage contacts and perform business functions such as intricate organization and use of applications, the device delivers on all fronts.

After one look at the phone, It’s very clear that HTC is not trying to re-invent the wheel with their latest phone, but rather take cues and tips from both Apple and Google. While this is very much an HTC branded phone and operates as such, HTC has looked to Apple in an effort to emulate the sleek design of all of their phones, recognizing that physical design is as important as the software and hardware contained within.
In regards to Google, HTC has taken inspiration from them in terms of offering as many functions as possible with ease of access. Though a user can judge HTC for not being terribly creative with the debut of this phone, one must look past this grave sin of imitation and put value on the performance of the phone itself. Not only does it simply just work, it works extremely well and places itself as a serious contender in the market.
In short, the One A9 is a sleek phone that just oozes aesthetic appeal, but backup up the eye candy with a stellar list of specifications, hardware and features. Though the phone seems like it is for the user that needs everything and have it perform to the highest of expectations, it comes in at a reasonable promo price of $399. In comparison to other models which are several hundred dollars more, this phone is a steal. Get your hands on one!
