HTC One A9

HTC’s freshly released One A9 smartphone combines the brand’s usual premium all metal design with the latest version of Android — that’s Marshmellow in case you’ve lost track. If the new styling happens to look like another smartphone you know, that’s just purely coincidental. While some of it’s specs lag slightly behind other flagship devices in the space, the overall user experience is still second to none for an Android device. Did we mention it’s also available with 32GB of internal storage for just $400 — or roughly $250 less than what you’d pay for that “other” phone.
