It’s an iPhone clone, looking purely at the design, and it has a mid-range spec sheet. However, its top notch display make the HTC One A9 a better option than what the company has put out in years past. In fact, this is one of the best mid-range options, even though the battery and camera are a step below the best on the market.
As of this writing, an unlocked 32 GB HTC One A9 starts at $500 in the US. For a limited time at launch, it was $400, though that promotion has passed. In Europe, the 16 GB HTC One A9 can cost almost twice as much.
Price aside, this is a good smartphone with an excellent display and top-notch design, even if it is unoriginal.
