With the HTC One M9 now officially unveiled to the world, how does the latest flagship device from HTC stack up against its Apple counterpart? We’ve lined up the two unibody handsets against each other to see how they compete as inevitably the comparison will arise from the Android vs iOS world given the similarities in build quality and design of the devices. We’ll be updating the comparison as more specs and impressions begin to surface, as well as when the benchmarks begin to surface for the new device.

The HTC One M9 clearly wins hands-down if specs are anything to go by, but ultimately it comes down to what operating system is preferred since both Android and iOS utilise the hardware differently to provide different experiences. So it’s not just a simple spec-race since it’s long known that iOS can be run on my lower hardware to give the same smoothness and experience

The device which will be right for you purely depends on which ecosystem you want to tie into, or are currently tied into; although it’s easier to bring Google to iOS than it is to bring Apple to Android.

Both devices adopt the premium unibody shell and are top phones, and if operating system wasn’t a deciding factor, would you prefer the iPhone 6 or HTC One M9? Drop us a comment below.
