HTC 10 vs HTC One M9 spec shoutout: Worth the upgrade?

by Jacob Kleinman | April 12, 2016April 12, 2016 5:20 am PST

HTC just announced its latest flagship phone and it’s a doozy. The HTC 10 is a powerful handset with a gorgeous design and some awesome news features. Still, the question remains: Is it worth upgrading from last year’s HTC One M9?

On paper, the HTC 10 is a solid upgrade over last year’s model. It boasts a bigger 5.2-inch display with a Quad HD resolution, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM (up from 3GB) and a new 12-UltraPixel camera. Of course, the One M9 is still a sleek device with solid specs, but if you’re ready to upgrade you won’t be disappointed.
