Improved camera
Great design
Battery life too poor
Some rattling in case

HTC has taken some design cues from the iPhone for the One A9, but that doesn't make it any less of an Android phone. This comes with Android 6 Marshmallow software on board and we'd expect HTC to update it to Android N when it's possible.

There's a 5-inch full HD screen, which isn't as gorgeous as the screen on the HTC 10 but the price of the HTC One A9 has already dropped so it's going going to break the bank.

The camera is much improved upon previous HTC handsets, but the battery life on this phone isn't as great as some had hoped for.

If you're looking for the latest from HTC check out the HTC 10 that features later in this list, but if not this is always a great choice.
