HTC One M9 vs iPhone 6 spec shootout

by Brandon Russell | March 1, 2015March 1, 2015 8:25 am PDT

You don’t have to see the spec sheet of the iPhone 6 or HTC One M9 to know that these are two very different phones. Apple devices will always be at odds with Android powerhouses, refusing to compete on specs alone. But there’s still just something about seeing the two side by side, their internals all laid out.

So that’s what the charts below will provide; a complete look at the technology we’re dealing with, from screen size, to battery life. It’s always fun to see how devices compare, but, like I’ve said before, what’s written down on paper doesn’t always reveal the full story. You have to experience the devices to really get an idea of how they perform, what you like and don’t like.

We haven’t yet had the opportunity really put the HTC One M9 through its paces, so we’ll reserve judgement for now. But take a gander at the specs sheet below, if only to admire the technology involved.
