darkgamer, 30 Jul 2014Your first 3 reasons are the same. And you forgot the boomsound speakers.
M8 over s5:... moreYou have forgotten the superior music quality, caller clarity and Car Mode on the HTC M8. The kids mode already on the M8 and it also had on my last year M7 as well. I don't think minor processor clock speed difference makes a huge difference. In day to day usage, still M8 faster than the Galaxy S5. Both phones have the same Adreno 330 GPU.
I agree that S5 has tons of features, but the only matter is, are they useful to you or are you using them more often? There are better alternatives available for the Health & Fitness and Multitasking apps on the Play Store. There is a great app called "Multitasking" available for multitasking on Play Store. Finally, the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S5 is not quite perfect. It's not accurate as the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 5s. Sometimes I had to swipe the finger 2-3 times when I was using the Galaxy S5.
We don't have to buy a phone because of the tons of features and if we don't use them in our day to day usage. The most important thing is which phone gives the better user experience.
Anyone can help me? Why can't attach picture from gallery while using whatsapp?
Dont listen to what people may say about the camera quality. its the best ive seen out there. depth and colour make all the difference. however the camera lens will scratch way too easily and is unusable after 4 months. im having to send mine back to be replaced (i hope). yes ofc im carefull but you'll need a specific lens cover for it, available if you google it. speakers, screen, ui, performance, are all the best of the best. cant complain about them at all. the glass screen is very resilient, ive heard no complaints and have none about it. that lens lets the whole thing down though. HTC give you the best phone you ever used with the best camera and make the lens out of rubbish.
My m8 just got system update to 4.4.3
Good job HTC, keep it up HTC.

s5 has better screen than one m8.but i dislike s5 because it lacks FM radio,stereo speakers + heavy UI.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2014M8 is overall better....
Has a much cleaner smoother interface..
Naturally margin... moreYour first 3 reasons are the same. And you forgot the boomsound speakers.
M8 over s5:
Better looking ui
Much better metal build
Better front camera
S5 over m8:
Finger print scanner, heart rate scanner and all other extra sensor's like gesture sensor, barometer etc
WiFi mimo( 2 WiFi antennas for double the WiFi speed)
Slightly powerful cpu and GPU.
Capacitive buttons ( personal preference Stert save the screen space)
Much more features in touchwiz like s-health, multi window, toolbox, private mode, kids mode etc.
M8, 29 Jul 2014please tell me which is better; m8 or 5s
please explain!!!M8 is overall better....
Has a much cleaner smoother interface..
Naturally marginally better performance ..
Touchwiz in s5 is as heavy and laggy as it gets...its better than s4 touchwiz but still nowhere near sense 6..
Build quality and premium materials..though its upto owners choice..
Reasons s5 wins...cam and waterproof...but m8 cam is also pretty good...not a deal breaker...
Rest is upto you...
sextant99, 29 Jul 2014Yes. It has better display than s5. Watch youtube man. See the difference.Are you serious. M8 is an LCD display and it cant even come close to s5 in display quality.
S5 is brighter, has infinite contrast, better sunlight legibility, better blanks, better color gamut, better viewing angles and is more efficient display.
M8 is a great phone and is better than s5 in many areas but not in display.
Regarding YouTube videos, you are viewing then on your limited gamut LCD computer which cant display real colors outside of sRGB. Additionally, the cameras of reviewers skew the white balance asks color temperature.
If you want to compare two displays, either go with the scientific tests it go and see them in person.
Don't mislead people here.
Prem, 29 Jul 2014In this price segment...camera should be more better than this...This phone ( HTC M8 ) has a dual cameras on the back, that one of them is a 4MP camera that use ultrapixel technology, and the other one is a depth camera, trust me you will not find these specifications in any other phone. and on top of that they put a 5MP front camera.
But if you want a high MP camera, then go for the new ( HTC E8 ) just like the ( M8 ) this one also has a 5MP front camera, however they dropped the depth camera, and they dropped the ultrapixel technology camera. and they replaced them with a single 13MP camera.
sextant99, 29 Jul 2014Yes. It has better display than s5. Watch youtube man. See the difference.Seriously, how can you compare lcd to amoled . Amoled screen far better than lcd.Think before you post such stupid comment. Grow up.
As I promised with HTC that I shall buy now HTC M8 instead of Samsung galaxy S5.
So I bought it today. Really it is a superb phone.
If Samsung will not care of their customers then they will lose them. I was an old customer of Samsung from galaxy till galaxy4 but smellted Samsung changed my mind when
customer did not get support from Samsung but HTC sent a new phone to that Samsung customer well done HTC..
anonnyme, 19 Jul 2014are you serious? s5 amoled display is better than m8 super lcd 3? You must be drunk or somethingYes. It has better display than s5. Watch youtube man. See the difference.
How do we correct the purple stint on HTC (M7) camera? Ur response on hoe to resolve this will be appreciated.
AnonD-257122, 29 Jul 2014What is the difference between this and E8,apart from the camera? Also which one is better.
... moreRater than explain it in words, I think it's better to watch this video.
