I work in the mobile phone industry and get weeks and weeks to test all of the latest smartphones so have hands on experience with the M8, Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2, LG G2, Lumia etc etc. The HTC One M8 is the best smartphone ever. No arguments.
Anyone doubting the camera is either spouting unfounded rubbish or is using it incorrectly. It isn't the best camera out there, but unless you're using it for professional photography the differences really aren't noticeable. And if you are using it for professional shots, you might want to think about investing in a DSLR.
I used the original HTC One as my personal device for 8 months and can say that the speaker in the M8 is a massive improvement. Don't be concerned about the lack of Beats Audio - for me it was a marketing gimmick and nothing more.
The HTC One M8 is a massive improvement over the original model in every aspect. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
Oh, and to any Apple fanboys spouting off - don't be so deluded. Wait and see what the 'iPhone 6' offers before claiming it will be better. If the past few years have been anything to go by it'll be a disappointment.
Lip, 30 Mar 2014Well, for me, iphone is the best phone out there. Smartphone begins laggy after 6mos to 1yr. U... moreIf you don't know how to use a smartphone probably iphone is the best solution for you..

eme, 31 Mar 2014To me Blackberry z30,sony z2 is better than HTC m8So what? jealousy is the root of witchcraft. HTC M8 has cause much pain already samsung fans, as they have nothing applausive to say except to criticize. N.B camera is not everything in a phone. Use this camera first and then comment. People complain about camera in iPhone,samsung,Sony, etc. phone is not a camera please. HTC M8 will be crowned phone of the year. HTC for life no matter what
eme, 31 Mar 2014To me Blackberry z30,sony z2 is better than HTC m8Take it!
Applesux, 30 Mar 2014Is it available in India? If yes, then where? If not then when will it be available? Htc one m8 has still to launch in India....expect m8 anywhere to arrive between last week of April and May 2nd week.....price expected is around 50k Indian rupees
Anthony, 30 Mar 2014That's funny. If teenagers can be going to school with iPhones, what makes you think this is o... moreWell Anthony I wasn't bagging HTC as I have one simply stating
The obvious. Teenagers with rich parents or privileged backgrounds
May be able to afford the new HTC one. But the obvious market area is mainstream
working class which tend to have kids which tend to like to take photos. The new m8 is disappointing in the camera department ph is fantastic. I don't have time to carry multi devices and encourage HTC to put the next HTC one out with a better camera and I'm sure
they can get a bigger piece of the market to actually make money and stay in business.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2014Best phone ever seen wooow waiting to be available in. ! Lebanon !Heya u I'm also from Lebanon :) Trouble with HTC in Beirut is they have no spare parts. The volume buttons broke on my Sensation XE and I cannot get a replacement cover. I can find em on Amazon and ebay but can't find em here- any suggestions?
Daviv, 30 Mar 2014The camera is worthless: 2688х1520 pixels. Looking at a picture on a 15" MacBo... moreThe macbook is part of your problem- Looks fine on a Lenovo 15.6 Inch. Apple is sending out signals via rf on the 5.5 Mhz band this interferes with your cognitive recognition. Try binning all apple devices right now- see you cannot do it :P
I'd just like to point out that the M8 in Asia has a 2.5Ghz and the American version only a 2.3, the 2.3 as reviewed by GSM arena has an AB chipset whereas the one for asia will have the AC - Means the US one is inferior
Anthony, 29 Mar 2014Could you tell be why you need to check atmospheric pressure with your phone?He is part of a secret occult sect organization called the Atmospherics who can manipulate the air and do airbending by knowing the atmospheric pressure .
