Display

Camera

The 13-MP primary camera is able to take good shots. But it is not as stunning as the other flagship smartphone cameras of the HTC. More specifically, sharpness and color reproduction of the images captured through the automatic mode seemed a bit less. However, according to different smartphone reviews, the low light performance is impressive. Same thing happens to the 4-MP secondary camera.

Hardware and Performance

The HTC One A9 has been packed with the Snapdragon 617 chipset and 3 GB RAM. As a result, it has become as powerful as the Nexus 6P in the Geekbench 3 test. With the Adreno 405 GPU, it can run almost all the mid-range games with a stunning graphics.

Battery

The HTC One A9 has a smaller 2100 mAh battery. However, it is still able to produce about a day long power backup. Thanks to the advanced power saving options and the new Android Marshmallow operating system.

Design

Having a thickness of only 6.9mm, the Lumia 650 has become the slimmest Lumia ever. With the soft-touch matte plastic rear and aluminum frame, it feels really pleasant to grab. For these reasons, most of the smartphone reviews praise the design.

The device also comes with a 5-MP secondary camera that can take amazing selfies.

Hardware and Performance

The Lumia 650 comes with the Snapdragon 212 processor, Adreno 304 GPU and 1 GB RAM. In terms of the cheaper price tag of only $289, the hardware looks absolutely OK. You can run all the basic apps and entry level games with a super pace. We haven’t experienced any lagging issue in it.
