The much hyped HTC One M9 is already struggling with its fair share of problems when it recently started overheating whilst running a benchmark. It seems that overheating is not the only problem faced by the One M9 as reports point out at reduced battery backup which might turn this phone into a wall hugging device.According to Tweakers, the likelihood is that HTC One M9 could actually offer shorter battery life than even its predecessor although the One M9 comes fitted with a 2,840mAh battery as compared to the smaller 2,600mAh battery in the One (M8).

HTC claims that the phone is still not running the final version of the software and there’s still some tweaking to be done. The company had to delay its sales in the Taiwanese market over software related issues.
