HTC One M9s

 

Design and Display

There is not much separating the HTC One M9s from the One M9. It flaunts a unibody construction and a premium chassis fashioned out of dual-layer, double-anodised aluminium. The phone shares a thickness of 9.6 millimetres with the HTC One M9, but it is a gram heavier at 158 g.

It uses similar 5-inch Super LCD3 capacitive touch display with a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. A pixel density of approximately 441 pixels per inch means you will be right to expect crystal clarity from this display, which is protected by rugged and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

The Cameras

On the camera front, HTC One M9s packs a pair of 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an UltraPixel front-facing camera. The main camera uses a 27.8mm-equivalent lens that has an aperture size of f/2.0 and a sapphire crystal front cover for added protection.

It has features you would expect to see on higher-end offerings, including dual-LED, dual tone flash, optical image stabilisation (OIS) and BSI sensor. The UltraPixel selfie snapper boasts 4-megapixel resolution for amazing self-portraits. Both cameras support Full HD (1080p) video recording at 30 frames per second.

Hardware and Software

One of the changes on HTC One M9s is that its maker has ditched the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 for a MediaTek Helio X10, although the processor also has eight cores. The Cortex-A53 CPU delivers an impressive speed of up to 2.2 GHz and is assisted in its task by a smaller 2 GB of RAM and a capable PowerVR G6200 GPU.

Inbuilt storage is 16 GB and you will be able to extend this further by up to a whopping 2 TB via a microSD card slot. The phone will boot Android 5.1 Lollipop software, overlaid with HTC’s Sense UI 7.0 skin.

The same 2840mAh non-removable, Lithium-polymer battery used on HTC One M9 also supplies the juice here. The One M9s has 4G LTE and speedy Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac among its connectivity options.
