Following earlier failure this year HTC is back with a new phone the HTC A9 which is the first non-Nexus phone to run Android Marshmallow. However, the phone looks like a complete ripoff of iPhone 6.
Apple plagiarism you may say? But then creativity and perception is unique to every single consumer out there that’s how we at the brand radio see it.
The HTC One M9 introduced earlier this year gained lower traction on sales far beyond expectations according to retail data onlinr to let the users know they are still ontop of their game the Taiwanese company today revealed its 2nd hero smartphone of the year as HTC One A9, running on Android Marshmallow.
The HTC One A9 costs just $399 unlocked, half the price of an iPhone, with an all-aluminum body and round edges- just like an iPhone.
Fighting the criticism, HTC says that HTC One A9 is the amalgamation of its two existing phones – the One M9 and the Desire 816. If you take a moment to look at these phones and combine their looks, you’ll understand what HTC is trying to say.
Well, does it matter to the average person why “this” phone looks “that” way? No, it doesn’t.
HTC One A9 is the first non-Nexus phone that will be running Android Marshmallow. It does look very attractive and the smooth glass-covered front panel feels very nice with its machined back.
It’ll be interesting to see how long the struggle of HTC continues. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.
