We grew pretty tired of all them HTC One M9+ rumors, so it was a breath of fresh air being able to finally take a look at the device this morning. The phone is now official and it’s looking like a great option, but it’s a bit odd in that it’s both a high-end and pretty much a mid-end smartphone.
The phone comes with a premium aluminum construction like the One M9, yet the specs are a mixture of both high-end and mid-end components. The most significant factor here is that it happens to sport a MediaTek Helio X10 processor, which is one of the SoC manufacturer’s higher-end chips.
Just how well does this processor perform? Well, we were able to play with an HTC One M9+ for a bit and just had to put it through the test. We ran an AnTuTu benchmark for you and recorded it all. Let’s check out the specs and take a look at the video together.
HTC One M9+ specs

- 5.2-inch 2560x1440p display
- 2.2 GHz octa-core MedaTek Herlio X10 processor

- 4 MP Ultra Pixel fornt-facing camera
- 2840 mAh battery
- 150.99×71.99×9.61 mm

As you can see in the video, this phone can reach a score of 44,547 in AnTuTu’s benchmark. While that is not up there with today’s flagship devices, it’s a pretty damn good score. It’s actually right in line with devices like the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Said phones may be outdated, but they are still fast.
I say this will offer very good performance to most users. And really the phone is much more about its other features than it is about raw power. After all, a phone is only as good as what it can do, and not so much how many milliseconds quicker it can do it.
