The One A9 flaunts a 5-inch full HD (1080p) AMOLED display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and pixel density of 441ppi, whereas the Nexus 5X flaunts a 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) IPS LCD display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and pixel density of 423ppi.

Under the hood, the One A9 is equipped with Qualcomm s MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 octa-core SoC paired with Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. On the other hand, the Nexus 5X is powered by Qualcomm s MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa-core SoC paired with Adreno 418 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Both smartphones come with 32GB of onboard storage, but One A9 has a slight advantage as it comes with a microSD card slot with support for up to 2TB.

On the camera front, the One A9 sports a 13-megapixel rear snapper with dual LED flash, Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and optical image stabilization (OIS). It also includes support for capturing images in RAW format and a built-in hyperlapse mode for capturing time-lapse videos. On the other hand, the Nexus 5X comes with a 12.3-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, laser assisted auto-focus and support for capturing 4K videos (30fps). While the One A9 is equipped with 4-Ultrapixel selfie camera, the Nexus 5X comes with a 5-megapixel front camera.

On the connectivity front, both smartphones come with support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. The One A9 is equipped with a 2,150mAh non-removable battery, whereas the Nexus 5X comes with a slightly larger 2,700mAh battery. Both smartphones also include Qualcomm s QuickCharge feature for fast battery charging. In terms of software, both Nexus 5X and One A9 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. One minor difference is that the One A9 also has HTC s Sense UI running atop Android OS.

For added security, both smartphones also include fingerprint scanners. While the Nexus 5X has it at the back, below the camera module, HTC has it embedded underneath the home button below the screen. The HTC One A9 also includes support for Dolby Audio and Hi-Res Audio, which the company claims to offer improved audio experience.

Both smartphones closely match in terms of price, specifications and features. But there are a few key differences you should be aware about. First and foremost, with the Nexus 5X you would get the latest Android version. However, it doesn’t have expandable memory. While the Nexus 5X might have a more powerful processor, the One A9 comes with 3GB of RAM and during our review we didn’t face any lags be it while multitasking or playing games.
