HTC touts its newest flagship, the One A9, as being constructed with an excellent-skinny metallic body that has a chic end.

At first look, the One A9 tends to be mistaken for Apple’s iPhone 6. Design-clever and shade-sensible, it has been subjected to a seemingly countless comparability towards the iPhone.

Whereas the corporate has repeatedly confused that the One A9 shouldn’t be in any means a copycat, the comparability appeared to have lingered as proven by the newest critiques on HTC’s latest flagship.

Raymond Wong of Mashable: There is no hating on the One A9’s design. I love my iPhone 6 and the One A9 is nearly as lovely. The One A9 has the identical strong metallic unibody body, similar palm-hugging curves and similar curved glass screen. HTC has balls — actual balls to promote a phone that so intently resembles the iPhone 6. The corporate is true in that it was the primary with the unibody design/again antenna design, however as I stated in my palms-on, being first does not matter. From the client’s perspective, the One A9 is a replica of the iPhone 6. The similarities are too apparent.

Chris Velazco of Engadget: The One A9 is an effective phone. The construct high quality is first-price. Marshmallow is a superb software replace. HTC’s Sense UI is not simply bearable anymore; it is truly fairly good! Oh, and the corporate will get credit score for making an attempt a unique kind of design after milking its earlier, milder modifications. Nonetheless, the A9 falls in need of outright greatness, and that is not ok in a market that is as completely, ridiculously crowded as this one.

Malarie Gokey of Digital Developments: HTC has legitimate counterpoints to any design mimicry you accuse it of. It says that its corners are extra completely curved for design stability, its camera is completely centered to offer a extra engaging look, and each factor is positioned simply so to supply a way of symmetry and wonder. Its designers are proper — the One A9 is, in some ways, a extra lovely and polished iPhone. HTC took Apple’s design and made it higher. The A9 is not an affordable imitation, however we worry it’s going to get that status.

Cherlynn Low of Tom’s Information: There are various issues to love concerning the HTC One A9: Its nice cameras, lovely, if too-acquainted design, handy fingerprint sensor and comparatively low price of $ four hundred. But it lacks the multitasking prowess of different telephones on this price vary. Additionally, for those who get it after Nov. 6, it’s going to value $ 500 — not fairly the steal it’s now. General, the HTC One [A]9 is an excellent midrange phone, nevertheless it’s not fairly the best in its class. If you are going to get it, we advise shopping for whereas the restricted-time $ 399 pricing lasts.

Adam Clark Estes of Gizmodo: It seems to be like an iPhone. At 5.5 inches it is barely greater than an iPhone 6, barely smaller than a 6 Plus. The A9 has the identical form, the identical antenna strains, the identical primary type issue because the very fashionable iPhone 6. Do you want a new phone so badly you could snatch up the A9 on the $ four hundred launch price and do you desperately need an iPhone type issue with the flexibility of an Android phone? Then sure, you should purchase it, however that is lots of ifs for one specific area of interest particular person.
