HTC will produce more affordable, plastic One M8 - read the full textOne of the main selling points of the HTC One M8 is its all aluminum body. The beautiful design and premium handling does come at a premium price and may leave lots of buyers out in the cold as the handset is just out of their price range. As a means of competing with Samsung in price, however,...

It doesn't matter the price, or the material choice. It's more about the brand, and Samsung has more of it, therefore I would go with Samsung either way.

Its the only one imo. Why would anyone want to get this?
If people want premium design and a good camera phone they will go for a Sony Z2. For power, great screen, camera and other feature they will go for Galaxy S5.
Htc lost again.

The whole point of HTC success is the Metalic body that it have, without it, it's just like any other phone. The plastic move is just targeting minorities that may like for thr design and speakers, but overall I dont think it will be a success
