Want to know how the new HTC One M9 compares to the Apple iPhone 6? Our Sascha takes a look at the two devices in the hands-on comparison video embedded below. We’ve also rounded-up the main specifications side-by-side.
The sizing of the HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 is much the same but there are significant differences in weight (the iPhone is lighter, and thinner) and in the screen specifications with the the One M9 offering Full HD.
Naturally there’s a huge difference between the operating systems and and ultimately that’s likely to drive most buying decisions. The model we tested had some rough edges on the camera software but that’s likely to be sorted out between now and the expected release date later in March.
