I just bought a BNIB m8 in 2021! =D
I proceeded to unlock, install TWRP, and Android 10 LineageOS. I'll play with 10 for a bit, then make a nandroid backup, and play around with Android 11 a bit. My Razer Phone 2 still only has 9...
I bought this because I'm planning to buy a Nikon P1000 for birding, which does not have a built-in GPS. So instead of linking my daily driver phone to my camera for GPS, I'll throw the m8 in the top pocket in my backpack; its only use is to keep a Bluetooth link to the camera and calculate coordinates when requested.
It was one of my absolute favorite pieces of electronics back in the day, and for $70, I couldn't go wrong. Especially considering it's more than capable of being used a backup phone in case anything happens to our good ones.
I do find it quite hilarious that a 7 year old phone could have an OS that 2 generations newer than what Razer can provide... though I do love the hardware...
The best phone I ever use even already stop using it for few years, the user experience I get from M8 is the best, I'm using iPhone 12 Pro Max now also can't get the first exciting feel when I touch the M8 for first time. This is a legend phone, unfortunately HTC doesn't make good phone anymore... sad...
I love this photo, best smartphone I've ever had, only one bugbear, I cannot access data through my sim card. I get WiFi ok, but when trying to get data, all I keep getting is the access point names unavailable for this user message. Bl***y infuriating.
after 6-7 years i use htc one m8 and android 10 lineage and it work ok.
without change battery or ...

It also has amazing speakers but the clarity is not as good as the M8. It is louder but not that clean at max volume. Battery life is not as good for an 3930mAh battery. I expected better optimization from HTC.
Had mine for 5 years. It likes to die at around 60%. I can make it happen less with battery saver mode. Need new phone lol.
Iam happy about htc one m8 but why cant i update its new version how shall i update it i want to update it atleast for the sake of emojis please help me
Been using this phone for six years and I still love it. Put LineageOS on it about two-three years ago and never looked back. Are there better cameras out there now? Yes. Does it still make it through the day without a charge? Hmmm almost. Do I wish it was water proof? Definitely. But it's been places and done more than any little device should be asked to and it keeps powering along with plenty of style. I love this phone.
Sadly, wear and tear means I have started to think about a replacement but nothing seems to match the HTC One m8 for style, features and value. Maybe the Pixel 4a when it comes out? But we just know it won't be as beautiful.
When they write the history of phones, the HTC desire and then the HTC One (m8) deserve their own chapters. Why did I fall in love with HTC?!? Why couldn't I have been an apple or samsung pleb??? The heart wants what the hearts wants

I could be wrong, but this 2014 HTC phone was the first ever smartphone that kickstarted the dual camera trend before Apple and LG came in two years later with a native telephoto camera for the iPhone 7 Plus and a native ultrawide camera for the G5. Such a crazy time to see smartphone OEM put a real focus on the camera hardware during those days as seen from this One (M8) alongside the Panasonic Lumix CM1 and the Nokia Lumia PureViews.

Insert the battery back into the phone and charge. Your phone will come up if it doesn't have power button related issue.
Hello can you help me about my phone, it is htc one m8 have switched off after charging and now I can't switch it on. Please help me.
Bought second hand, using it 5+ yrs(2015jan). Battery lasts more than a day. Focus camera doesnt work since day-one, GPS calibrated 90° off.
Recently updated the os for lineageOS, base functions and speed came back close to the original, but with lineage being a dev os, its a bit wonky with apps frequently crashing.
All in all, still hesitating to switch to another device
