Metal build phone are actually not as good as imagined,I'll prefer high-end quality plastic over metal.You'll easier to get bump or scratch in compare with plastic,weight will be lighter,price will be cheaper.Anyone who want to get the One,better wait for the plastic One.+Cheaper price and better camera(in term of megapixel)with same good specs.
its the best smatphone up to date....superb night camera picture quality..
Anonymous, 23 May 20144 mp camera ?? I know it's not a major issue for many people, but something like that real... morehTc One is greatest phone ever but with VERY POOR night picture quality with violet hue. I am surprised that the M8 has failed to correct this serious defect. My favorite htc now puts me off. I cherish hTc One but dusappointed with the poor pictured wether you call it megapixel or ultrapixel
Techno J, 26 May 2014Check your ringing tone and ringing tone volume. Similarly, make sure the profile set as general. Techno J. In your small review of m8, you talked about the battery life by regards of your usage pattern which doesn't quite depict a clear picture of the actual performance of the phone on battery life ground.
It would be better if you tell us the on-screen time of m8 from battery drain from 100 % to 1 %. Just charge the phone to 100 %, use it normally till 1 or 2 percent. Go to settings> battery. There you'll get the percentages of battery used by different objects/apps. The highest will be screen. Just click on the screen and it will tell you the time for which screen was on. This on screen time is almost constant for a device and hence it's a more standard way to describe battery life.
Tell the time in hours and minutes. For example, my s4 lasts a day of heavy use with an on screen time of 5 hours on average. If can go upto 9-10 hours of on-screen time if I read a book in night mode( I.e white letters on black background. Typical OLED favourable scenario).
Hence, it would be better if you post on screen time instead of the time you're getting on it and using subjective terms like heavy or moderate use.
Have a nice day

Go into settings, then go into the sound settings and check sound profile and make sure it is on normal sound profile, also check volumes, set audio volume.
I'm not experiencing any problems with my htc one m8.
The last thing you should do is a reset on your htc.
To longish, Camera glut, batt a day, why pay 800$ fr cell which will become redundant. Had Htc One X 700$ device worst batt, now its a gift to give away. Lets meet 4th qtr ad discuss fate of M8. Same as all happens. Time has gone we needed a mobile fr daily use a necessity, now its become a luxury to show off, can afford such expensive mobile.
There are many other things n Life tham Mobility.

HTC One M7 is the best phone design. The size is perfect. The features and performances are superb. Try and you will never regret.
Dear Sohailzafar .... S4 is past now so the it out of the list. I am using note 3 and as per my needs it's the best because of the s pen and the unbeatable SOME app. Android experience will be same on all you mentioned because note 3 is now kitkat ... I like samsung because they always provide removable battery which is actually a very nice feature and people don't notice it that much. One you are used to of Samsung keyboard I bet you will miss it if you change get to another phone. HTC one 8 is nice I have used the previous version but for a 5 inch screen that e phone has bigger body and slippery. IPhone is nice but I never used it and don't want to too because it's too small for me and I prefer android or windows over IOS .... Not 3 is supposed to be used by business people who, IT guys who attend lots of meetings or have to take lots of note, for example I easily create work flow diagrams and flow charts on my note 3, convert them to PDF in one click and send to you programmers within minutes and my desk is paperless now I am sure u get my point. People don't realize that Samsung plastic body is more strong than metal and glass with metal .... don't belive me see drop test videos and read about plastic and how it absorbs shocks better.
So if you don't have problem with large phone and want to be creative Note 3 is the best choice, otherwise you can select S5 (awesome camera, removeable and large battery, water proof and off course samsung is the top brand and you get lots of apps from Samsung app store), HTC one M8 (nice design, all sets have 4G LTE, rich look) ....
Love this phone. I couldn't wait to get rid of the Samsung S4 which had just so many weaknesses.back with HTC and happy again. It's just so well built, so adaptable texts 10 texts lengths in one go unlike 3 for Samsung. Is fast responsive and the battery lasts two days with features turned on that would have to have been turned off to get one day out of the S4.
ONE MONTH WITH THE HTC ONE M8.
I've been using this phone for one month and I would like to post my opinion regarding this phone after one month of usage.
The first thing I actually appreciate this phone is its superb build quality and excellent design. I have used many phones, but I can't find any phone which can compete with the HTC M8 in builds quality. Because of its curved shape, it's really comfortable to hold. Next, I like taking your attention towards the display. It certainly has a sharp, stunning display. Colours are not saturated as the display of Galaxy S5. However, M8 display really produces accurate colours with excellent amount of details. You will never regret of the display of M8.
When talking about the battery life, as a moderate user I can manage the battery life up to two days. If I activate the "Extreme Power Saving Mode" I can even manage another 3-5 hours. Another cool thing is its "Motion Gestures." I don't have to press the power button to wake up the phone. It's really useful for my day to day usage.
Next I'm going to discuss about the call quality and Boom Sound. Without any doubt there is no any phone to compete with the M8 in call quality. According to my limited experience, I have never felt such eminent caller clarity as on the HTC M8 or even M7. Sometimes I take loud speaker calls and video chat on the Skype with my sister, frontal dual speakers on the M8 are a great help to accomplish those tasks for me. Similarly, its music quality is really great too. I can't explain it in words, you have to feel it by yourself.
When describing about the camera, this is the only thing you will ever discontent on the HTC M8. However, I'm not a fan of phone cameras and I use a Lumix for my primary photography. The camera it not really bad as you think or the way some reviewers have published on the internet. Nevertheless, it's not too great as well, let say it's an average camera. The only interesting thing is its excellent low-light performance. But I really like the front camera. I usually take selfie photos with my girlfriend and little brother. So, I can take good selfie photos with the front camera of M8.
My final verdict is, overall the HTC M8 is a great phone. The only issue is its rear camera is not too great. So far I never faced any single of lagging or any other problem. Sense 6 is really smooth and attractive. I never regret choosing this over the Galaxy S5. I extremely satisfy with this phone.

karishma, 24 May 2014how is the battery on m8..what is the screen time that you guys are getting ..i use whatsapp... moreits a very nice phone battery is more advanced than the previous ultra save battery is fantastic
The phone is too long unnecessarily. The logo og htc in the front between the screen and the speaker should be removed. The phone will be ideal.
Haris, 24 May 2014Galaxy S5 or Note3.......both are marvelous......go for any onyAnd go for Samsung page,its advice.
