DUALSIMWONDER

HTC One E9+ dual sim

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT - By Az­izul Rah­man Is­mail

2,800mAh non-re­mov­able Li-poly bat­tery. We had high hopes, but it didn't quite meet our ex­pec­ta­tions. Fresh from the charger, the bat­tery level drops from 100 to 95 per­cent dur­ing our morn­ing news rit­ual, and drops to 80 per­cent by the time we start our morn­ing com­mute. To be fair, the me­ter seems to drain fast in the be­gin­ning and slows down as the bat­tery dis­charges. It looks to be log­a­rith­mic in­stead of pro­por­tional.

As our main driver, the One E9+ dual sim did not last a whole day. With light to mod­er­ate use, the bat­tery was full at 9am and was at its last leg by 7pm. A power bank is a must-have com­pan­ion ac­ces­sory with this phone.

De­spite its short­com­ings, the One E9+ dual sim is a well-made smart­phone. The pres­ence of a Me­di­aTek he­lio X10 octa-core 2.0GHz pro­ces­sor, cou­pled with 3GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch QHD (1,440 x 2,560) screen makes the One E9+ dual sim one of the best phones for media con­sump­tion.

The cam­eras are also bet­ter than av­er­age: speedy, good in low light, and cap­tures good de­tails, although the fo­cus­ing can be a lit­tle finicky, and slower than the shut­ter it­self. It is a high­light, but it does not stand out as much as we had hoped.
