HTC reveals One M9, fails to impress

HTC's this years flagship reveal was as expected the One M9. A new versio of last year's One was just that a new version.
Starting with the five inch Full HD display everything seems to be pretty much as it is with the company's offering. They have made a change in the camera department and switched the UltraPixel camera in the back for a 20 megapixel one that will improve the detail but that seems to be it.

The aluminum shelled One M9 features a Snapdragon 810, outperformed by the Samsung's own Exynos chip, 3 gigabytes of RAM, 32 gigabytes of microSD expandable storage and a UltraPixel selfie camera that claims to provide low light performance to the facial shots that you desire.

The phone has a 2840 mAh battery and an improved front facing duo BoomSound speakers that support Dolby Surround.

HTC One M9 is expected to land on all major carriers "early spring" with a $199 on two year contract price tag.

Seems like only apple can get away with keeping the same design for two years and just updating the specs of their devices.

I am not about to replace my M8 with the M9 but if I was buying a new phone I would not rule the M9 out. I love my M8 can't see why I would not love the M9.

This dose assume that the M9 will have a Google Play edition.
