Bottom Line

The HTC One A9 may not have a lot going for it and many will call it overselling to put it among the best budget smartphones. However, if you’re a fan of HTC devices, you will definitely appreciate the value it offers.

The HTC One A9 is an Android smartphone from HTC Corp. It was released in November, 2015 to positive reviews, which it got for its solid build and a rich and colorful screen. Customers were generally satisfied with the performance, but what really floated the boat was Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which you get with the device straight out of the box. Things weren’t all smooth-sailing however, as many users expressed their disappointment with the battery life, sound quality and the rear camera. Regardless, the HTC One A9 still manages the desired level of balance with style, performance and good pricing.

    To compare this too much to an iPhone would be unfair to the genuinely impressive power under the hood - but it's curious that HTC has decided on this design path.

    Let's be fair, HTC didn't have the best year in 2015. It's HTC One M9 flagship was poor and things only went downhill from there. The One A9 didn't bring back any of that former glory. But 2016 has started off much better, with the brilliant HTC Vive headset and HTC 10 smartphone. Things are looking up for HTC.
