    I've enjoyed mine, except for the camera. I can no longer get it to focus. This is especially noticeable when trying to do a mobile check deposit, but now I'm finding even normal pictures tend to come out blurry.

    I'm starting to wonder if I need to exchange my phone, or if it's a software thing. I've found threads for older HTC phones with a similar sounding problem, but nothing yet on this one. Anyone else having this problem?

    I am thinking of getting one to back up the M10, or to have in case the kids need one.

    Initial reviews of HTC One A9 were very disappointing. I've had HTC phones before and I've always loved them. I switched to the Xperia Z line soon after M7.

    When the price dropped to about $350 on Ebay, I thought to myself that I'll take the plunge and buy the A9 anyway. When I unboxed this phone, I fell in love immediately! It's a gorgeous phone! It's as big as the Xperia Z3 that I have, but the A9 feels so much better on the hands. It's definitely thinner. The entire phone just feels good to hold.

    I am not an amoled screen fan. I think the colors are oversaturated and sometimes subdued. I still prefer the screen on my Xperia Z5 Compact. However, amoled also enables this phone brightness to be on about 25% and still clear.

    I didn't like the launcher on this phone. I didn't like the fact that there was no option to change the app drawer to horizontal. It only came vertical scrolling. Xperia got this one right. So, I installed Nova Launcher and I'm happy.

    I was also suprised to learn that HTC Music app wasn't installed. I tried installing it but it would always crash. To solve that, I installed Pulsar+. Happy camper here.

    I like the font customization that HTC included. No, I LOVE IT! I'm glad they added this.

    Camera. I am not really particular about phone cameras as I do have a real one for when I need to take some shots. Having said that, I am impressed with the cameras on this phone. Clear. Crisp. Quick!

    Sound. I don't think it comes close to Xperia Z line. But it's pretty close. Oh, I'm talking about music through headphones. Obviously, this phone cannot compete with Xperia's dual front facing speakers.

    For all its little flaws and imperfections, I think the HTC One A9 is very well underappreciated. It was worth the $350 that I paid for it. I just don't think it's worth over $400.

    I've still had no issues. Battery and phone are great IMO.
