Sorry, Its a disappointment except for the new gesture based controls and improved battery life. HTC is going to end another year well behind the competition and well with in the red territory.

everyone seems to want their phones to be perfect from every single aspect and that just doesnt happen. the one Major gripe everyone has with the m8 is its camera. i think htc is finally getting its act together. htc used to be overly priced for mediocre performance sans expandable memory. they are now becoming competitively priced with better specs And micro sd slot with their build quality intact (something samsung rarely achieves).and lets be honest, their cameras have never been their strong point. even with their 8mp shooters. the fact that they have stuck with the 4ump cam is pretty cool i think. the megapixel debate is more about bragging rights in most cases. sony's 20mp cams arnt really all that great as reviews have suggested. and nokia is the only company that delivers when it comes to image quality....but its Windows os! and thats fine for many too. Iphones are an all round good package but Insanely overprices unlocked. If ppl were to constitute to what the perfect phone was for today, it woul have the internal spcs of the note 3 (with s-pen), pure view camera from nokia, screen to bezel ratio of lg and the fit and finish of htc and water and weather proofing of sony. But that phone doesnt exist. i like the fact that htc stuck with a camera which shines for its pixel count and added a second camera for proximity field adjustment. yes it sounds dull but its the first (and only)of a kind on a phone and they have made it better. perhaps the pixel count will increase in the future. anyway they do offer a 5mp front shooter for selfies...and the m7...well it was the phone that kept a sinking company afloat...so to say it didnt sell well would be a bit far fetched...
Everything about this phone (except the camera) is fantastic for me. Sound quality, design, battery life and screen. I'll use a proper camera for occasions and projects anyway.
nice job again HTC .
btw, about camera, everybody need phone cammera to take photos on run , nobody uses phone camera for profesional work, so phone is not just cammera detal , there is tons of detals what HTC doin great job in it, sound, proccessor, UI , design , final detals and etc.

Can I just say that the faux-bokeh is horrible? Sony's background defocus produces much better photos.
Wow. After reading lots of reviews of this year's flagship phones, I think Sony Xperia Z2 is the winner of the war this time.
I didnt get one thing S5 launched last month no reviews yet in any site HTC one M8 phone launched at 8:00 PM IST reviews were out on 20 high end websites in just 5 minutes....:) I think u got it right
Who critizes HTC One's camera is because have never used it... The camera is Amazing!!
I have many friends with their S4s and IPhones, and they get amazed that I can take pictures without flash at night that turn out to look excellent... much better than theirs with flash... Everyone always asks me to take the pictured for the group and then share with them...
Forget about numbers people... What matters is what you see...
GSM arena you say this phone has the best audio but yet looking at the chart I can't help but notice the s4 has higher marks in some of the categories, frequency response, noise level and crosstalk especially or have i got the wrong end of the stick
