HTC said that there are some things under that bottom bezel so they couldn't put the hardware keys there.
LOL! HTC's phone becomes longer and longer.. it looks even much longer then the butterfly s ROFL
Camera is not just about megaixels. I'd seen photos from this 13Mp camera, and the quality of the photo is better in HTC M8.

And yet you want your phone to provide a great camera. Wow. You've won the internet for the day. An average camera with decent output is sufficient for smartphones. For other purposes, we have the real cameras.
Yes I agree on whatever else you say, and HTC is getting there with their phones.
Graz, 31 Jul 2014I wish HTC would do a phone with the design of the M7， the same camera as this one ... moreI hear you buddy... On screen buttons are just not the way to go... In fact I miss the hardware keys and the optical trackpad on my HTC Desire. HTC please bring back capacitive keys at least.
Lovethen, 31 Jul 2014Great to hear 13 megapixel in stead of 4 ultrapixel. But this isnt high end look sony z1,20 me... moreBuddy check your facts, the Xperia cameras aren't as good as they sound on paper. If you followed GSMArena then you would know. So stop bashing companies here just because you are a fanboy.
Now make the beast for Europe. I need to change my Sensation XE. Real high-end users don't need the great speakers. If I can afford a super-high end phone then I surely have great car audio and home audio. So I don't need to listen to music from my phone as children do, since they have no alternatives. Being mobile without other devices I use earphones, since as I am already grown up I don't need to seek attention by disturbing others with my music or movie sounds. So htc, ditch the audio, and concentrate on camera, smooth usage of the device (lots of processing power and RAM) and lots of storage options (huge internal memory + huge sd card support) then the connection possibilities (IR, BT, NFC, dual WIFI, 2G,3G,4G, etc) and there you have the winner device. If I want the sound to be loud and disturbing while on the move by foot or bike or skates, I'll get some boom speakers, but I doubt that I and most of the people ever will.

Great to hear 13 megapixel in stead of 4 ultrapixel. But this isnt high end look sony z1,20 megapixel with bigger sensor. Try harder htc.

As you can see whilst waterproofing makes the phone waterproof you see you lose loud speaker
Waterproofing downside is that speakers are "lost" in the process
2x, 31 Jul 2014Idk who are the biggest suckers, the ones you claim to be suckers because they bought a phone ... morelook look I got a bite! I caught a .... M8 user. *throws it back*
Actually, it's because I actually use my camera in a productive and creative way I can't buy an M8 because I need to sometimes print my photos at very large sizes (A2 and up), even if it's just to be used as a place marker until the creative services dept. gets the final shot.
Uggghhh I'm so tired of M8 users defending their ultra-crap camera. I love everything about the M8 except the camera absolutely blowsssss, ok? GSMArena even said in their shootout that a still shot taken from the Note 3's 4k video had more detail than a 4MP image from the M8's still camera. It doesn't get much worse than that.
Just own up to it already and we can move on, ok? ;-)
And on a brighter note, let's celebrate that the E8 and new HTC J don't have ultra-pixel sensors, if this trend continues there may be a M9 in my future.

For a "mobile nerg" you are quite ignorant i must say, for once, the Butterfly series was always meant to be plastic and not metal, so no, they couldn't maintain the M8's metal design, second you don't know anything about cameras nor use them in a productive or creative way or else you wouldn't be talking like that about the extremely versatile ultrapixel module. (inb4 hurr durr megapixels)
Xperia Lord, 31 Jul 2014why does japan always get the good stuff?" First of all, the phone is waterproof, as practically all phones in Japan tend to be."
Any reasons behind?
luvheer, 31 Jul 2014Nice phone... Waterproof ,high standard camera.. will miss boom sound speakers for sureIf you look carefully, it has BoomSound :D
[deleted post]And when it will be launched, with a price it commands, you will again be displeased, because it's too costly. Cut the company some slack mate, it will come with Butterfly 2, which won't be as cheap as E8. Start pleasing yourself with what's available or wait for new things. :)
