in screen on mode the battery last for 6-7 hours.
my device is good for moderate to heavy use for 14-16 hours after a full charge.
which is fine for the moderate user. not for me though since i need to use bat pack sometime in the day. nevertheless, this is more durable in terms of bat life smartphone i ever had.

I'm one of the top commentors on GSMArena blog and you learn something new from some great commentors like eske rahn, ET, dh dog, chuck norris etc.
It's not about expressing views but more like sharing with a great community and interacting with them. Also the section is full of fun with many sarcastic comments. Also disqus is a much better commenting system having notifications for all the replies to your comment.

I bought HTC one within 7months i got Camera and Mic issue twice, before buying the device go to service centre you will be knowing how many people got fed of HTC mic and camera issues, its unworth.

Of course you can adjust the resolution on mobile games. I hope you are using a laptop. Yeah GTX 760M more than enough for play games.
Earlier, I recommended the Galaxy Alpha for my sister. But now I think, I would rather recommend the Xperia Z3C. Galaxy Alpha is insanely expensive. She could rather buy a Galaxy S5 at that price. I hope Z3C would be a great phone as well as cheap.
I don't have a Disqus account. I read Gsmarena Blog, but I found that Android Authority and Pocketnow articles are much better than Gsmarena.

Regarding the resolution. I haven't seen any game on android which has the option to decrease resolution. On pc games we have that option but not on phone. I'm not a gamer but my gt 765m also handles everything at 1080p.
I prefer these discussions on the blog though. Do you visit gsmarena blog?

For example, you can get better fps on Crysis 3 by playing it on the 720p instead of 1080p. Yeah, 720p resolution on a 1080p monitor is horrible. Anyway, I don't have to do that because I have a GTX 690 4GB VGA in my PC.
I played Asphalt 8 on my iPhone 5s smoothly than the HTC M8 and Galaxy S5 owing to 640p display on the iPhone 5s. But some of my friends who own iPad Air complains that high-end games are quite lagging on their high resolution iPad. I'm not sure because I don't own an iPad, but they say.
I badly need a Galaxy Note. I sold my iPhone 5s and got some amount of money. This is my first Galaxy Note that I'm going to buy. I can't wait until the next year. I'm interested about the iPhone 6 as well. But I think I should wait for the iPhone 7. I hope to buy a Tab in next year. I'm not sure, my plans are always changing.

The problem is that auto mode of samsung phones is terrible in low light. You have to use it manually.

M8, s5 and z2 are good for gaming but no one plays asphalt 8 as smooth as iphone 5s. And asphalt 8 is a one year older game. I can bet these phones will stutter when asphalt 9 comes out.
Anyway, there are people who purchase phone for gaming.
Regarding the note 4 launch. It's closer to 1.5 day than 1 day. I'm excited about it but I'm certainly not going to buy it or any phone unless my s4 becomes unusable or irrelevant and that's not gonna happen until next year.
Also there is one more phone I'm excited about. It's the xperia z3 compact. And we can't forget the iphone 6 with it's beast apple a8 processor.

I never faced any problem with playing games on my current M8 as well as my previous Galaxy S5. Seriously, people buy phones for play games???
Of course you can get higher fps in a low resolution display. That's why Galaxy Alpha has higher fps than any other smartphone. For example, I can increase the fps on a game by lowering the resolution on my PC. Same hardware, lower resolution and higher fps.
Anyway, I can't wait until tomorrow. I'm waiting for the Note 4. If it impresses me, I'm ready to buy it.

However, AFAIK only m7 has this problem and m8 doesn't have this issue.
If your phone has this issue, get a replacement.

Though i agree nothing can match tegra k1 GPU now. I'm waiting to see how powervr gx6650(iphone 6) and mali t760mp16(note 4) perform in front of k1.
In phones nothing can still match galaxy alpha level of framerates. It has a better GPU than adreno 330 and has much less pixels to push. The result is 60 fps in all current games as well a as good future proofing.
please suggest me how can I get rid of HTC one M7/M8's pink tint problem with its camera that appears on low light conditions. Thank you.

It has the console level graphics that no any phone or tab can match with it. The price also reasonable compared to what it offers.
The Snapdragon 801 version of Galaxy S5, HTC M8 or Xperia Z2 all of them has the same gaming performance, they is no any visible difference on them.
