When it comes to design, there is a war between brands “HTC” and “Apple” as to which copied which. Now as both phones are out in the market, the design matters the least. Their sales figure is going to depend only on features, specifications and performance of the phones.
Let us see which of these latest smartphones, “HTC One A9″ or “iPhone 6S“ is successful in bringing the best features and specifications to customers. We can say that HTC One A9 is going to be among the first few advanced phones as it runs on Android Marshmallow, the operating system Google is using to change smartphones for better. iPhones run on iOS 9, Apple’s latest operating system that has already encountered a lot of problems.
When it comes to display, following the trend, HTC One A9 sports a 5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display. iPhone 6S is still at 4.7-inch display. The rumors also hint that the iPhone’s screen size may reduce as Apple gets rid of the home button.
When it comes to performance, HTC One A9 will do a great job as it is powered by Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 chipset. That does not mean iPhone 6S fails here. Apple’s A9 chipset with a dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister processor is pretty impressive. So both devices perform equally well. Cameras are doing the trick when it comes to selling smartphones. iPhone 6S does not seem to be winning the race here. HTC One A9 comes with a 13-megapixel camera while iPhone 6S has a 12-MP camera. To make up for the lost 1-megapixel, iPhone 6S offers you 4K video and 8MP image recording simultaneously. HTC One A9 does not have this wonderful feature on its platter.
When it comes to the battery, HTC One A9 wins as it runs on Android M and the Doze feature. It will give you a long-lasting battery. When it comes to iPhone 6S, the battery life is quite disappointing. Being a high-end phone, it does not offer you a battery it should have.
All-in-all, HTC One A9 would be a better choice than iPhone 6S. Android M is the future; we are still not sure about iOS 9.
