This looks like a great phone and probably my next purchase but I just wish HTC would allow for a change of battery. Love the fact they've added an SD slot but why oh why have they not allowed for a change of battery???
Quite simply the best Android phone released this year so far. I've sampled the competition, and only the Z2 comes close. The ultrapixel camera is a gimmick that doesn't take great photos like its rivals, but everything else more than makes up for it.
I have no idea why GSM Arena hates it so much, as other reviews disagree.

I'm a DSLR camera owner, use Zeiss or Eclipse liquid cleaners to clean the camera lens. You can buy them from any camera store and the price is around $8-10.
Just put 2-3 drops onto a microfiber cloth and rub it very gently on the lens. Do it into one side rather than rubbing multiple sides.
Note: Don't put the liquid directly onto the camera lens.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2014m8 battery life is very poorI always get 6-7 hrs on screen time with HTC M8. May be you are spending your whole day with the phone and end the battery life within 5-6 hrs before even ending the day, then put the blame on the phone rather than effectively manage the battery life.

But here is the thing, you can easily wipe-off a fingerprint, however, removing an oleophobic coating is not as easy, and if that coating is on camera lens and it got scratched, then all your photos will become blurred forcing you to remove the coating.
So it was probably not a good idea to have an oleophobic coating on the camera lens to begin with.

Anonymous, 29 Aug 2014m8 battery life is very poorAre you crazy? Haven't seen any smartphone with battery working 3 days.
The inability to change the battery will potentially push me from HTC. I need to upgrade the HTC One S I have enjoyed for 2.5 years. Firstly because bloating of apps these days fill to busting the small amount of phone memory available and secondly the battery now needs two charges a day.
As with many parents the old phone goes to the kids with a new battery pack.
I really want to buy either the HTC One mini 2 (too small memory) or the HTC One M8 (bit to big for me). Both now take a sd card but they both have non-changeable batteries.
Time for an alternative brand?

M8 has one of the best battery life in a phone. It won't beat the week long battery life of a Nokia 1100 but it's pretty good for a smartphone.

Anyway, android stores these files in a folder called downloads in the internal memory.
Dear all HTC lovers,
I have 1 question regarding the phone. Where to find all the data where I download from either internet or from my emails about words, excels?
Anyways, I have been using HTC ONE M8 for 2 months. I think this is the best for I have ever had. I am a gadget lovers. I have used several models from several brands. Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Note 2, Samsung Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S 4, Samsung Galaxy S 5, LG G2, LG G3, Iphone, Nokia, and many others.
May HTC ONE M8 will bring success to HTC...
