Everything about the phone is excellent........Except for the camera. My phone has the now famous purple tint issue which HTC seem to be denying ever existed. My phone is out of warranty. HTC refuse to repair the phone outside of warranty. My opinion is that its a manufacturing defect which has affected the phone from new. Therefore the camera was never fit for purpose.This isn't a warranty issue, its a consumer rights issue. The shabby customer service over the camera issue has put me right off HTC....Never again....!
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017Incredible phone, using it from 4 years now. Best phone ever (except camera issues). Thinking ... moreI wouldn't go far to say best phone ever. More like best design ever although some dislike the many wasted bezels around the screen. I got my 2nd One last night which was exactly 4 years after it got released.
Using it now for some DoorDash and GPS voice navigation. The sound is surprisingly soft with the navigation and it lags badly when using CM Browser app. My M7 and S7e are two of the prettiest phones ever but also the laggiest that I currently own. Looks fade. Performance matters.
Missing my Pixel and G5 right now. Pixel is just fluid UI. G5 is better to type on because slightly bigger display where you won't accidentally touch the home button below the keyboard space bar as often like on the Pixel.
Will use the Pixel/G5 tomorrow as they are a better duo with the best fluid experience. The prettiest duo of the glacial silver M7 and platinum S7e stutters too much. The lag just ruins the experience for me. Pretty paperweights.

I actually got a second model of this phone last night for $60 used. It is in very good condition with maybe some tiny nicks on the bezels from the plastic case it came with. I sold my M7 two years ago and just missed the design and audio.
Honestly, this M7 is just a memento. It is my 9th phone currently and my 3rd phone I got within 4 days. I didn't remember it being kinda laggy. TV remote app won't work. HTC browser app crashes.The touch response was smooth when I got it in 2013 but doesn't feel as smooth as my current daily drivers from 2016. Still has the purple photos. Still charges very slow with more time charging and less SOT.
So stuff I hated about it is still there. But I missed it for its design and audio. I remember back in 2013, it took me a long time to adjust to its size. Maybe a year since coming from iPhone 4 and Nexus One. I hold it last night and it feels so easy to hold. I prefer the M7's size and design but would rather have the performance of the M8.
M7 still a great phone by HTC achieving many accolades for them. Overrated by reviewers like the S7 edge was last year but probably HTC's best design ever. I do prefer its design over the M8, M9, Xperia Z3, and Galaxy S6/S7 edges. Close to smartphone design perfection for me using metal. This second one is on 4.4.3 with TMo with no carrier logo on the rear while my first one was stuck on 4.1.2 and AT&T.
But would I use it as a daily driver now? Oh, hell no! Goes back using the often maligned and UGLY G5 and Pixel for smooth performance, longer battery life, fast charging, great cameras, and rarely gets warm. I would only use this M7 as a third wheel since my Sprint G5 which is unlocked for both international and domestic can't get data with TMo like my TMo S7e and Verizon Pixel.
A third or fourth wheel phone with good audio capabilities and nothing more.
In my honest opinion, this was the most ground breaking phone ever made and I feel so sorry that it can not keep up anymore in every day use because I loved it while I owned it. Apart from the buggy camera on some models, everything else this phone had to offer was absolutely amazing.
However, this phone is still good enough for people that use it as a regular phone and some browsing. Games and more demanding media on the other side cannot be pulled off anymore.
Im using this phone for 3 years but unfortunetly it has an error about system update in every day.Now it offed and doesnt work yet. I should take a new phone
I know somebody who had this phone. It is very stable, he used it 3 years without a case and dropped it constantly. Once, it flew against a door and it was so loud that we thought it is dead now, but the phone was golden. Just my experiences with the M7. I once held it in my hand, it is very handy, probably better than bigger HTC 10.
I have set a security password on phone by setting>security , but when I try to unlock the phone by using same password , phone doesn\'t show any ok button after entering complete password, what should I do please help.
Htc service is very bad .no don't purchase this phone .
In htc phone mistake installation htc software.
Ok pretty ok specs the front camera sucks for a smartphone that came out later than 2009
mike, 13 Dec 2016 i want to pay this phone from a friend, though it is still very neat but am afraid after read... moreDon't read comments when you want to go for these things. It's a lesson I've learnt. I have been using the fone as a second user for over seven months. Fantastic phone, 2GB RAM, ...unrivalled stereo audio, sturdy!
i was using this fon for some time but it just went off not knowing what is wrong with it, i taught it was just a minor problem i went home to put it on charge but nothing shows it is charging, as at now my documents and stuffs on this fon is no where to be found, in fact i am very disappointed.
Very poor service quality and very poor phone quality too.
I suggest everyone not to buy htc handset guys.
Very poor service quality.
I am using htc e9+ and its not a value for money.
Battery drains very fast.
Charging takes much time.
It hangs alot.
And big thing is very very poor repair quality.
I like everything in this phone except for the battery...it drains so fast and overheats easily.
