HTC on Sunday announced the brand new HTC One M9. If it looks familiar, that’s because it is. HTC basically refined the design of the One M8, merging elements of that phone with a bit of the earlier One M7, and upgraded the hardware and software inside.

The phone feels much sharper thanks to more pronounced edges along the sides of the device, which calls back some of the design elements we saw in the One M7. The 5-inch 1080p display is sharp, though not as jaw dropping as some of the panels offered by HTC’s competitors. Hopefully that means we’ll see improved battery life in our long term tests, however.

HTC packed the One M9 with a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Android 5.0 Lollipop ran well on the device during our hands-on, and HTC’s new Sense 7 user interface doesn’t add any drag to the experience. We’ve always liked Sense, and Sense 7 is a solid step forward.

Users will be able to customize the device easily with a new area for downloading and applying new themes. It also provides contextual information on the lock screen and in BlinkFeed, so you’ll know if you’re near a restaurant with good reviews on Yelp that you should check out.

I also really like the options to switch between various packages of apps on the homescreen depending on where I am: the phone will swap out apps for work, home or for travel when you’re “out,” for example. There’s a new recommended apps section that feels a bit spammy to me, but thankfully you can remove that without an issue.

The camera is supposed to be a big jump forward for HTC, which has been criticized in the past — sometimes not deservingly so — for its UltraPixel cameras. You’ll find a 20-megapixel shooter this time around, but we haven’t had enough time to play with it to judge whether or not it’s as big of a bump as HTC hopes it to be. Still, the firm promises solid performance thanks to software tweaks. Meanwhile, you’ll find a front-facing wide-angle UltraPixel camera for selfies, which did seem to work pretty well in our tests and has some fun features. One option, for example, lets you blend two faces into a silly looking composite selfie of two people.

We’re excited for what HTC is bringing to the table this year. Sure, it might look awfully similar to last year’s model, but why change what’s already working?
