Anonymous, 29 Mar 2014No beats audio, what a shamelack of Beats Audio is not a big deal. Since HTC phones have the best music quality.
I just got my M8 and any this is sexy. The best part is that it is waterproof. Also i love there boomsound speakers. They're better than ever. Front facins camera is the best. The metal body looks beautiful. The duo camera is good for normal photography. For better photos i have my cannon dslr. Worth every buck.
ericpieterson, 28 Mar 2014Listen bro...go on youtube and check the speaker test of xperia z , z1 , and z1 compact....u w... moreyou go and watch youtube video of htc one m8 vs sony Z2.....Z2 stereo speakers are more powerful than htc one m8.....Z2 is more louder than htc.....even though Z2 is a water proof device still managed to beat this boom sound.....BTW!!! Sony is not a cheater like htc.......htc cheated over benchmarks......your so called metal boy is cheating.......lolllzzz
Jeabn, 28 Mar 2014Not even close...their speakers full with noise, laggy, not loud enough and keep crashing usin... moreBe objective fella! All the Xperia Z series are great phones. I was going to wait for the Xperia Z2 but bagged me the gun metal grey M8 today from carphonewarehouse! Why you may ask? I genuinely believe the Z2 to be a better phone especially with water resistance etc and not just water resistance but all round. However, the Sony is delayed (Sim Free) till May which is a big mistake so bought me a HTC One (M8). Sony can wait till my upgrade in October, sorry!
I got my m8 today and I just can say to all Samy pu....I boys stay away
It's a real man phone - it's not iPhone or Samy - it's a HTC
I have many phone , including m7 but this one is much better .
Now need to compare it's not a glass from Sony or plastic from lg and samsung .
Excellent buttery and absolutely great speakers camera is Okey it's just little les than on my Lg 2g , but by far better than Sony z compact ( plastic toys )
I don't compare it with 5s because it's not same calibre and the screen on m8 is better than 5s
For the moment - now competition .
Only one remark - the case what you get with phone is rubber , I already ordered niece one
Sorry people for my English ( i am from Belgium)
really hot and really good phone from htc
i like it so much the camera is average and for me enough but i hope they change in m8+ to sell better for htc
i buy this great design and super beauty phone
the lcd even better than m7 wow i love the m7 screen so this screen kill me
night visit, 28 Mar 2014i disagree with you, htc has worst camera on flagship phone,water proofing make more sense,you... moreNot even close...their speakers full with noise, laggy, not loud enough and keep crashing using facebook messenger recorder. HTC's speakers are the best
night visit, 28 Mar 2014i disagree with you, htc has worst camera on flagship phone,water proofing make more sense,you... moreListen bro...go on youtube and check the speaker test of xperia z , z1 , and z1 compact....u will find out how bad the speaker is...if u dont beliee then check..im not lying or bashing but just stating the truth..
Erick 19, 28 Mar 2014want good camera shots??? buy DSLR folks.... no smartphones can beat DSLR even sony z2 20.7MP.... morei disagree with you, htc has worst camera on flagship phone,water proofing make more sense,you can use your phone without minding rainfall, floodwater even playing in swimming pool. mega pixel beats ultra pixel when viewing in larger screen like pc and tv.on heating issue,all flagship phone heat. on long time gaming,Web browsing,watching video,wi-fi hotspot.try and see.m8 z2 s5 all are android best and world greatest smartphone.google can boast on them without compromising. water doesn't affect the speaker sound because if you look at xperia z you find out,the speaker has flexible rubber face that resist water + dust from penetrating inside
IGZO not contain, and everything for this phone is joke, htc shame of you for rummors
can anyone tell me what is the differences between developer edition and any mobile locked with any carrier, i.e at&t, Verizon, t-mobile
it has infrared light beside front face Cam also it is water resistance device
htc m8 cheated over benchmarks..:
htc is a cheater....lollllllzzzzzz
cheating over 10,000 points.
The reason for the eyebrow raising is AnTuTu X – an alternative version to AnTuTu 4 specially designed to prevent devices from cheating. When ePrice, which originally reported the beastly benchmark results of the One (M8), decided to run AnTuTu X on the phone, the results where quite different.
In fact, they’ve run the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G Pro 2 and Sony Xperia Z2 alongside the HTC One (M8) on both AnTuTu 4 and AnTuTu X to see the differences. Save for the HTC One (M8) all of them scored similar results in the two benchmark apps, but the One (M8) showed an alarming difference of over 10,000 points.
Here are the scores in the ePrice testing.

And for those saying waterproof feature is good to handle a spill or two...we cud see in the video the m8 was underwater for 1.5 hr and didnt have a trouble...
