The 5-inch display has a full-HD resolution, which is the same size and pixel count as its predecessor. Unsurprisingly then, there's no visible difference in clarity between the two displays. Text looks extremely crisp and icons are displayed with pin-sharp edges. High-resolution photos and videos also have a satisfying clarity. There is, however, a noticeable difference in colour. While the M8's screen has bold, vibrant colours, the M9's colour is more restrained. Yellows and reds in particular look less warm, particularly when viewed side-by-side against the M8 and especially against the Galaxy S5. (You'll remember that we found Galaxy S5 to have the best screen -- by a nose -- when we tested it against the new iPhones late in 2014.) While the M9's colours aren't poor, they didn't provide the best venue for the phone's camera (see that section for more details, below).

There are, however, no options on the M9 to alter colour tones on the display -- unlike the S5 and S6 -- so you can't boost the saturation, If you want colours so strong they almost iphone xs max - iridescent hurt your eyes, Samsung's AMOLED displays on the S6 and Note 4 may be more suitable, On a side note, it's good to see HTC hasn't opted for a 2K screen as we've seen on LG's G3 and more recent G4 and the Galaxy S6, In our experience, there's almost no discernible benefit to a higher resolution panel on a screen that size, That said, our initial battery tests of the Galaxy S6 show that its battery lasts longer than that of the M9..

The M9 arrives with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop software on board and you'd expect nothing less from a top-end phone. HTC has heavily customised the overall look of Android, however, with the latest version of its Android skin Sense 7. On the surface, Sense 7 looks pretty much the same as Sense 6 found on the M8. It's a neat layout, with simple, well-spaced app icons in the app tray, an easy to use settings menu and the BlinkFeed news and social network aggregator sitting off to the left of the home screen. Sense was previously my favourite of the Android skins thanks to its simple and responsive design, and I'm happy to report it's just as pleasant to use this time round.

The new version brings much deeper customisation options, There are a range of preset themes to choose from, which alter everything from your wallpaper and colour schemes to app icons and fonts, You can download additional themes, although right now there aren't many to choose from, Once the phone goes on sale and people other than HTC's designers start creating themes, the themes section may start to fill out a little, You can tweak the themes too, selecting your own app icon style, colours or fonts as you desire, There are loads of fonts you can download -- I don't have an exact number -- which may be a bit too in-depth for many people to bother with, but it does help make the iphone xs max - iridescent phone fell a little more yours, If you'd rather not dive through settings, you can generate a theme based on the colour palette within a chosen photo..

An interesting new feature is a home-screen widget which dynamically changes which apps displayed within it, depending on your location. The apps you use most at work, for example -- Google Drive, Mail and so on -- will display in the widget when the phone detects you're at the location you've set as "work". At home, however, it will display apps like YouTube or the TV remote app. HTC explained the widget will learn over time what apps you use at home, at work or on the go, but I personally found it easier just to spend 10 minutes arranging the apps myself and let the phone simply switch modes when I arrived at each location. It's not a killer feature, sure, but it's admittedly handy to have the apps shuffle around to bring tools I know I use only for work purposes to the forefront.
