As the excitement for MWC 2015 slowly wears off, the wait for all amazing flagship devices increase. The most awaited smartphones has been launched by two tech giants, namely Samsung and HTC. Here's eight features where the HTC One M9 outpowers the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Do take a peek and be amazed to see what HTC has packed into its M9. These features are missing in the new Galaxy S6. Hence making the One M9 a really amazing and premium phone from HTC.
HTC's UltraPixel cameras in its previous flagships were met with lukewarm feelings, so the company finally decided to replace the sensor on the One M9 with a 20 MP one. UltraPixel still exist, however, as it made its way to the front of the smartphone, ensuring better selfies and video chats in low-light conditions.
HTC's top rangers are among the few high-end smartphones to flaunt a dual front-firing stereo speakers around its display. Not only that, but they also employ HTC's BoomSound technology, allowing for a loud, meaty sound to come from the small speakers, giving the One series some of the best audio reproduction capabilities out there. Plus HTC has partnered with Dolby audio, which helps the M9 to produce 5.1 surround sound from any corner of the room.
A cool feature that is often seen on various smartphones - the idea behind a dual tone LED flash is to have a pair of flashes - one warm and one cold - they both fire off together and this should result in a more balanced, natural picture, whereas the old, one-flash method usually leaves snaps looking very cold.
Samsung's new unibody design is cool and all, and its new internal memory tech sounds impressive, but the whole package lacks something, which Android users often like to praise - the possibility to augment storage space by using a microSD card. That's right, while the HTC One M9 still accepts storage expansion, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge do not.
HTC made it very clear that it will be focusing on smartphone photography last year, when it announced the HTC Desire EYE, the RE camera, and the EYE Experience software update for all its top-line phones. Basically, the EYE Experience provides superior facial tracking, which can track the mugs of up to 4 people and keep them on the screen; Split Capture, which takes simultaneous shots with both snappers; voice-activated selfie snap; and Face Fusion.
A feature, which has been lacking from the Galaxy S line ever since the S4. Contrary to what Samsung may believe, there still seems to be a large portion of users who enjoy having FM radio on their smartphone, and the HTC One M9 caters to those users fully.
In most other aspects, however, the performance of the Snapdragon 810 beats out the Samsung-made chip, especially when it comes to RAM speed CPU integer calculations.
HTC's M9 has an odd cutoff now where the metal shell ends, there's a gap, and a plastic front begins, which doesn't look as good as last year's M8.
