HTC One M9

Design and Display:

HTC and Google seem to differ in their view of what an appropriate display size means for their respective flagship devices – at 5 inches, the One M9 offers a great deal less screen real estate when compared with the 6-incher of the Nexus 6. That’s not all, however, as the Nexus 6’s AMOLED panel is also more pixel-dense and offers a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (493 ppi) – a considerable lead on the One M9’s 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution S-LCD3 display (441 ppi). Thankfully for HTC, this advantage of Google’s handset doesn’t really mean much in reality, as the human eye has a pretty impossible task spotting any differences in image sharpness.

In looking at the two, the first thing to stand out is the disparity with their sizes – it’s just a handful to hold the Nexus 6, while the M9’s contoured casing and smaller footprint makes it easier to grasp. Additionally, there’s more of that premium quality and aesthetic attached to the M9’s design, which is something that translates over to giving it a sturdy construction as well.

While the Nexus 6 features 32 GB on-board storage with an option of 64 and 128 GB variants but not any of the variants has externally supportable memory.So both the smartphones has same internal storage but in terms of RAM Nexus 6 takes a lead with having 3 GB RAM where its rival with 3072 MB.


The HTC M9 features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original desire phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means that there’s a range of fancy features on offer and 5 megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is good for selfies. But the front camera is not an HD version.
