HTC One M9 out now in the UK

You can now pick up the HTC One M9 in the UK.

HTC announced its latest flagship phone at the beginning of the month, just prior to MWC 2015.

Now the HTC M9 is listed as “available now” on the Carphone Warehouse website. Prices start from £37.50 per month on a two year O2 contract, with no up-front charge.

That’ll snag you unlimited texts and minutes, and 1GB of data.

The HTC One M9 itself has attracted a fair amount of debate and controversy since its launch a month ago. That’s not because of any radical Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge-like design, though. Far from it.

In our own review, we felt that HTC had been too conservative with its approach to design, with the HTC One M9 looking very much like last year’s HTC One M8, and even the HTC One M7 before it.

It’s pretty similar on the spec front too, with a seemingly identical (or at least very similar) 5-inch 1080p LCD display.

The HTC One M9 does run on faster Snapdragon 810 CPU, of course, and its camera is an improved (but still inconsistent) 20-megapixel example.

HTC’s UltraPixel technology has been switched around to the front this time for better low-light selfies.

All in all, it’s still one of the better phones out there, and it’s worthy of consideration now that it’s available in the UK.
