HTC keep its promise to present a second flagship phone in 2015 and it is called One A9. For years, HTC is a symbol of quality that distinguishes it from all other Android devices, and that is recognized even by competitors like Apple. But today HTC did something different, and instead to present a complete new design with which to winnow the competition, the company introduced a clone of the iPhone 6 (6s). Both models are so close that only camera on One A9, positioned in the middle. However, judging by the approval and the great sales of the iPhone 6 (6s), then HTC should reap more benefits than negatives from his identical design with the devices of Apple.
Metalmorphics: Entirely new standard in the design of metal housing. HTC One A9 comes with a combination of saturated colors and unique coating on the housing. The color pattern is characterized by the elegant combination of shades – carbon gray, silver, gold and red wine.
HTC One A9 comes with a 2,150mAh battery, Qualcomm Quick Charge, 64-bit eight-core Snapdragon 617 processor, which allows the use of X8 LTE technology and 5-inch FullHD (1080p) AMOLED screen. The main camera has a 13 megapixel sensor with F/2.0 lens and sapphire coating. An important feature of the camera is that it has an optical image stabilization.

HTC One A9 has an entirely new modes of energy saving and extending battery operation. Technology Doze stops applications automatically when the phone is at rest – in charge at night and Standby will switches it off until you need it again. There is many improvement over the processor, and the screen consumption. In numbers, this would mean that you can watch HD video for 12 hours on a single charge
