TOP 35 HTC ONE M9/M9 Plus Tips And Tricks!

HTC One M9 and M9 Plus are the HTC flagship smartphones of 2015.  This guide will show you tips and tricks of this awesome phone from HTC M9 and M9 Plus, so let’s get started!


1. Fingerprint Scanner (M9 Plus ONLY)

One of the best features of this phone is the built in fingerprint scanner that’s built on the phone’s home screen. The fingerprint scanner works in a similar way to the one found on the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, as it’s really fast and requires no swipe.  All you need to do is to put your finger on the home button and that’s it.  The fingerprint scanner allows 5 different fingers to be registered and you can register them from three different locations in Settings > Fingerscanner, Settings > Security > Fingerscanner, or from Notificaiton Panel.

2. Use the Physical button as the “Home button:(M9 Plus ONLY)

The above title might sound little strange, although HTC seems to have especially built the physical button for the fingerprint scanner, but they do also give users a choice to use it as the home button.  If that’s your thing and you like physical buttons, then this is for you.

    Hello Mr. Haider, my m9+ battery drain so fast. I already tested by using code from phone calling buttons *#4323#* or some I don’t remember and tested the battery, it was good. Can you please help me how to wipe partition? Or other equivalent method to extend battery life. Thanks.

    Thanks dude really helped me a lot on the navigation button thing.
    Btw do you know how to stop the update???it always seems to have system update even though ive already update

    • Rawand Haidar says:

      you’re welcome man!, yes there should be a checkbox in the software update tab, just uncheck it and that should stop annoying you from the software update notifications although I recommend getting such updates as they include security enhancements plus new features!

    Unfortunately HTC M9+ if one of the worst phone ever build by HTC.
    I was an owner of the old and glorious M7, and this M9+ is fucking expensive and it’s a piece of CRAP.
    It has SERIOUS problem of OVERHEATING, so badly that if u enable wifi and gps and you are using some apps, you cannot almost keep the phone in your hands!!!
    The first phone they give to me, after take out from the box started a screen blinking like if it was interlaced resolution, and they immediately change it.
    The other one then, seems to “work” but then after 3/4 days the fingertip sensor, went KO, and it’s not working AT ALL, also as “home button”. So it’s not a problem of not recognizing the finger, but of the sensor itself.
    I tried everyting and, no way, the button still dead. Then at 20.000 feet altitude the button “wake up” again and worked for other some days before dead again.
    Connecting to the power charge, i discovered, helps the button to “wake up again” and start to work. but now the thirth or forth time it happens, neither put it on charge is working.

    Most probably it’s a software issue, but, man… WTF, neither HTC or the people who reviewed the phone check out all this small but important thing?! WTF only the resolution and the features “on the paper”, that we don’t give a shit since then the “test run” it’s completely different thing.

    Last night an icon appeared on my phone. It’s rather hard to describe – it’s round but inside an a rectangle; inside the rectangle is what looks like a plus sight but the lines aren’t connected then above that is 2 sets of three dashes then above the rectangle itself looks like to upside down parentheses. When I touched the icon it completely froze my phone. I could not unlock it at all. I had to do a soft restart to get it working again.

    Any idea?
