i'm looking for a good smart phone and HTC caught my attention. but i was wondering if they are tough enough? i have butter fingers and drop my phone A LOT!! besides many times it just slides off my pockets while i'm sitting. its still alive just because its a nokia. but can a HTC go through the same amount of torture??
p.s: i like the HTC one mini and desire 700 (dual sim) very much. are these phones tough or will they brake after a fall or two?my budget is around $300. please suggest any other smartphone in that range (except samsung and Iphone. i hate those. )
AnonD-215746, 04 Aug 2014Hi Chris, Kindly confirm if the new update supports SD card writing? Thanks, I just updated into Android 4.4.3 yesterday. Now, there is a File Manager on new 4.4.3 version. So no need to worry about the SD card writing issue.
To those who are so worked out about the megapixels, do you know that HTC one mini 2 which is the smaller/inferior version of M8 has a 13MP camera. Come on HTC are not that daft. 4MP ultrapixels must be better than the 13MP on the mini 2 surely.
I have my HTC one M8. I don't where all this farce about the camera is coming from. For your information guys, specs don't make a good phone. It is about how you put everything together and make everything work in harmony. HTC know how to do this. I have taken a few photos and they are all impressive. Screen is smooth and feels responsive.

I don't know why HTC can't design a better camera. All the phone cameras after their HTC One X are horrible. The camera on the One X is the best after the Lumia 920 in 2012. All HTC has to do, just increase the sensor size.
I'm going to sell my iPhone 5s on this Wednesday. I tried so many times to adapt to ios, but I couldn't. It's just a very light OS lack of flexibility, I can't fight against it. iPhones are ideal for teenagers and basic users. Don't know what will be the iPhone 6 but I think as usual, it will be a resize of iPhone 5s with some hardware upgrades.
The main reason why my mind always says to move to Samsung because of their OLED panel. I hope to buy a Note 4, just waiting with some hope move back to a Samsung device again.
Have a nice day.

"As for the image quality of the main camera, we are not quite sure what to make of it. We were amazed by the image quality and the mature processing of the 13MP cameras on the HTC One mini 2 and the HTC Desire 816. And there's no point of beating around the bush, with such high expectations, we were disappointed with the HTC One (E8) camera.
Compared to these two previous models we mentioned, it's like the camera of the HTC One (E8) was developed by another company. Quite possibly, the camera sensor is the same, as we are seeing identical amounts of noise in shadows and roughly the same amount of detail resolved.
However, when it comes to colors, contrast, sharpness and overall processing, the HTC One (E8) couldn't be more different than the HTC One mini 2 and the Desire 816. The photos produced by its camera have shockingly low contrast and the colors are seriously desaturated. The fine detail is soft and uninspiring."
The reason why I've started commenting here more is due to a troll who has crept in the s4 forum. His name is prashant and posts 30 troll posts a day. The page has become useless due to him. Go there and see that how one troll can make a forum useless.
Have a nice day

Surprisingly, it's better than my M8 in daylight photography and video recording. Sometimes even better than the Xperia Z2. I thought that's the same camera on the E8. Therefore, it should be better. I'm waiting for some more reviews to clarify that.
Thanks for the info.
Now, i'm having iphone 5s..i want to try m8..is it reasonable or just keep iphone 5s until iphone 6 come out?
I bought HTC One M8 two days ago August 2 2014...I have problem I try to setup the voice touched back function..agter that I cannot open my phone using PIN to unlock phone screen...please advice me regrading this matter..the said unit is very good but maybe unfutunately I miss used the function..
I'm upgrading sortly with in the next week or so i read a few comments and they look good i currently have the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Exyous(N900) is it worth upgrading now I love roms and root yeah i know this is kinda a downgrade in the sence of screen size but I'll ajust any downsides to the phone can i always have max Brightness and it wouldn't deside because of intence cpu usage like the g3 to bring it down a bit I really don't care for 4K though i like takeing pics now and then the Z2 has a few issues there and i hate windowsphone so it's between the HTC One(M8) they don't sell the E8 in my country and well i really don't know I have quite big hands and like power so noless then 5" any ideas would be nice thanks

Don't believe it?? See these links.
[deleted post]Note 3 certainly has a better camera than the HTC M8. However, if you desperately need an HTC phone, just try the HTC One E8. Its 13 MP shooter clearly better than the 4MP shooter on the M8.
