“The craftsmanship of our new HTC One M9 resembles that of a fine watch. We’ve retained our iconic design but made it even better while not compromising on what is important to our customers,” explains Jason Mackenzie, president of HTC America.
That’s saying a lot as the HTC One was one of my favorite Android smartphones the last two years. Loaded with functions and features, a camera that didn’t miss that crucial shot and a beautiful and sleek design and form factor that earned the trust of many smartphone users.
AT&T is on board with the latest HTC One as it is available online and at AT&T retail locations for as low as $0 down through AT&T Next24 and for $17.34 by making 30 payments or for $99.99 with a standard two-year agreement. Fans of previous versions of the HTC One will get an added bonus with this one as it is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. While AT&T offers the nation’s best 4G LTE network along with the nation’s strongest LTE signal, the newest HTC One gives users a uni-body with a thin metal frame and edge-to-edge made of durable Corning Gorilla Glass. The 5MP HD AMOLED screen is bright, vibrant and easy on the eyes, while the famous 13MP HTC One is back and better than ever. The microSD slot comes in handy for extra storage. Dolby Audio will pound through you headphones or earbuds and the touch on the display is as responsive as you get in a smartphone. With the Dolby Audio the fantastic “tough” and bright screen, this is a great phone for gamers, music lovers and those that need to get work done in a pinch.
“According to Kantar, HTC One owners listen to music more than the average smartphone user and so we didn’t compromise on what is important for our consumers,” said Mackenzie. “We kept the microSD slot and increased capacity to 2TB because you want your content with you, we made our HTC BoomSound experience even better by adding Dolby Audio to give you a surround sound experience, and while others are reducing battery size, we increased it so you can enjoy your music and movies even longer.”
Ever used the words, “Uh Oh” when using your phone? When buying an HTC One M9, it will now include UH OH Protection. This is a first and unique in that according to HTC it “provides a one-time free replacement within the first 12 months of purchase for cracked screens, water damage or a different carrier variant for customers wanting or needing to switch networks.” In other words, a protection plan smartphone users have never heard of in the past and if you don’t use the UH OH Protection in your first 12 months with the phone, HTC will offer $100 in credit to future purchase of an HTC One. This protection is good for those with service on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
“We are not only delivering the best-looking, best-performing smartphone on the market, we are ensuring it stays that way with UH OH™ Protection,” adds Mackenzie. “We are the only smartphone company that has your back if something unfortunate happens or if you need to change carriers.”
