I really like the design and color, I selected a carbon gray color which I loved it. The power button is given with a texture you that you can differentiate between volume and power button. It is a very slim kind of phone. The fingerprint sensor feels pretty low on the device actually and there is not much room between the bottom of the display and the fingerprint sensor. It has many apps on the home screen itself. It is simply a drag down OS which is ok.
It comes with Marshmallow out of the box and it’s interesting that they included stock icons which are really nice I guess. The fingerprint sensor also comes as the home button itself. I can just wake up the screen with the fingerprint sensor which is good. The device feels pretty fast and quick with opening apps. The camera is absolutely good. You can just swipe between the modes. And focus real quick and take a snap. The picture looks really good. The overall device is very good and it seemed amazing to me.
HTC ONE A9 is a very good latest smartphone with a very good OS performing faster and it comes with an only 2150mAh battery. The design looks subtle at this price point. It is available at a price range of Rs 29,990/- which is pricey but reasonable.
