OnePlus 2 vs. HTC One M9 specs shootout

The HTC One M9 is one of the best looking phones of 2015, but can it hold a candle to the flagship killer? Let’s see how the M9 holds up next to the OnePlus 2.

Both phones feature a 1080p resolution display, though the OnePlus 2 is bigger at 5.5 inches across compared to the 5-inch One M9. OnePlus also boasts more RAM and a bigger battery. HTC’s rear camera has a higher megapixel count, though that doesn’t necessarily mean better photos. We’ll have to put the new phone’s camera to the test before making a final call.

From a design perspective, it’s really a matter of preference. The HTC One M9’s all-metal design still looks beautiful, while the OnePlus 2 boasts a bigger screen along with more options thanks to its StyleSwap backs.

We’ll have more detailed hands-on impressions with the OnePlus 2 soon. For now check out the full spec-by-spec comparison below.
