HaikuReview – HTC One M9

Metal-wrapped body

Same as the one from last year,

But still beautiful.

Stainless steel is slick,

Probably ought to buy a case

Or get insurance.

HTC One M9 Camera

Last year’s five-inch screen

Same look, same feel, same smartphone?

Almost, but not quite.

HTC Generations

With last year’s model

Ultra-Pixel camera

Was not a big hit.

So now it is gone.

Now twenty MegaPixel,

For amazing shots.

Camera on front

Uses those Ultra-Pixels

For those selfies (sigh).

HTC One M9 -2

User interface

Is much more intuitive,

Using location.

When you are at work

The phone will respond to it.

Stop Candy Crush Now!

HTC One Sense 7 for Work

When you are at home

Everything auto-updates.

Candy Crush away!

Phone is still too big.

Wasted space due to logo

Makes one-hand use tough.

A decent upgrade,

Although Samsung got more press

It’s worth Checking Out.
