  • Pretty good deal.....averages out to be $325 a device Posted via the Android Central App
  • Damn, the M9 is still $650!?! Posted with my Axon Pro.
  • M9 last year phone,,,650 really... wow.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Well that's the price at the website. They always stay the same unless there is a discount, or a new phone releases. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hmm. Any good for flipping? How much can you sell the nexus 9 for on eBay? Edit: $270 max. Making the M9 $380. Not bad. Though you can buy a new M9 on eBay for less... Posted via the Android Central App
  • too much dough still.
  • Good deal, really. If not having the best camera is OK with you and you need a tablet, this is a really good deal. The m9 is solid on MM I've heard. It was solid for me on LP.
  • This is a great deal; I don't know why the M9 gets so much flak, it has the same processor as the Droid Turbo 2, the Nexus 6P, and the One Plus 2, among others. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Horrible camera, horrible battery life, HTC black bar and large bezels.
  • Partly agree with the camera, but the battery life on the M9 is better than the Galaxy S6, and HTC does not have Samsung's standby battery drain problems. Bezels are about the same size between the two as well. It's actually surprising that a phone with so much dedicated to quality audio managed to keep the bezels in the same league as phones with one small horrible speaker.
  • Nailed it. There is a LOT of HTC hate on Samsung...err, I mean Android...Central.
  • The battery life is still really bad, which is too bad because it really is a nice phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Too bad processor isn't the only factor in a Smartphone's viability. And if it was, we're still talking about the Snapdragon 810, the biggest terd of 2015.
  • Meh. Posted via Galaxy S7 edge
  • If the ten wasn't incoming I'd buy it. My M9 will probably be put on the shelf soon. The ego did not post this
  • How do they still think it's okay to charge $649 for the M9 in the first place? It's no wonder they're losing the smartphone war.
  • If they'd promote the 10 with a nexus 9 is truly consider it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No way is a m9 worth $650,not even close. The deal is not terrible..
    If you want both devices but in no way is this a hot deal. The nexus 9 has dropped to $240 multiple times, and for $410,you can get a 6p when considering promotions when on sale. Posted via the Android Central App
  • $645??.... Nah, I pass Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wish this deal was available when I got the M9. I love free gifts with purchases.
  • Why would anyone buy HTC? They are close to going bankrupt. Their stock is valued only as much as the cash they have, meaning the stock holders value their people, goodwill, stock of phones, and other assets as ZERO...and they are bleeding the cash they have left...company is already a tumbleweed blowing on the wind...the A9 was TERRIBLE in value and price...
    They won't even be a buyout target... This isn't even a clearance price sale, they are still delusional as to the value of either unit. Tablet is been replaced by the Pixel C in value and the M9 was a stillborn...they should be fire selling the M9, but can't, since it will devalue the 10...which is ironic Posted via the Android Central App
  • Vive, word that HTC will be producing the new Nexus phones, the 10, are just a few reasons why your prognostications are wrong. Oh, and the A9 was a good deal when released in the US. Very good camera, they get very good battery life with MM, beautiful display (2.5d glass + AMOLED). Yea, I think you have no clue as to which you speak.
  • Of course he does!!! Anyone who has enough brilliance to know that having a flash sale on an older model will lead to devaluing a newer model that hasn't even been logically announced, is to be feared at all costs. That does make me wonder though... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think the m9 is a great device. The size is great and the build quality is fantastic. Spec-wise it is on par with the 6p. I tried the Moto X Pure, the 5x, and the oneplus x before ending up with the m9. I got it for $250 from the best buy deal, unlocked it and turned it into the developer edition. It even has band 12 support for t-mobile (which I am using). Since I'm not a Sense UI fan, I set it up with cyanogenmod 5.1.1 since it's totally stable. And the MM version is officially on nightlies already. I find the camera to be excellent. Shutter speed is superfast and colors are vivid. Battery life is totally fine for my usage and easily lasts all day and into the night. It also has quick charge 2.0, but my standard 1A charger juices it up at nearly 30%+/hr already. Oh, and I bought it on the last day of uh-oh protection, so it will be replaced for any reason for the next year. How can you beat that? I don't even care about using a case or screen protector anymore..it's quite liberating. A better phone at this size (and price) does not (yet) exist. And like another comment mentioned, you can buy these brand new on eBay for what I paid. Posted via the Android Central App
