It's a great phone. Very well constructed, with awesome materials and an outstanding performance in any field: browser, photography, sound and multimedia, gaming... I can't find a weak point on it. Maybe would look better with less bezels but it doesn't bother at all. You get used to it very fast and the Motion Launch options (double tap on screen to turn it on) is very useful and you get used to it very fast. I really recommend to everyone this phone. Also the SD expansion gives you the possibility to expand the memory of the phone.
I bought one about couple of weeks back. I have a problem now. When I call or if I receive a call from outside, the other party cannot hear me. I am not sure to fix this problem.

ericpieterson, 08 Jun 2014No it doenst ...though ur statement is true with samsung phones...my note 2 ( previous user ) ... moreThat's because both s3 and note 2 use a cortex a9 based processors and that particular chip has a tendency of slowing down or wearing out over almost an year. But believe me, these latest processors( cortex a15 or krait based) don't age up at least 3-4 years.
You won't notice slowing down on m8.

I want to buy the HTC ONE M8. But i've been hearing many people saying that their camera on the m8 cracked while in pocket without any reason.Can anyone please confirm this?
Aman1234, 07 Jun 2014Hey guys if u want to play games with zero lag. In the developer option enable the high perfor... morePlease don't enable the high performance mode for regular processes. It can cause serious damage to the processor and degrade battery life permanently. It's just for doing very high performance applications for a very short period of time.
This mode forces the CPU to run at full clock and doesnt enable it to clock down which is necessary for the SoC to function properly in the long run.
The m8 already has a very capable processor. Please don't harass the processor by doing these things.
Have a nice day
Hey guys if u want to play games with zero lag. In the developer option enable the high performance mode and gpu msaa for 2.0. But its gonna make your phone hot.

Plzz reply
Software & UI:
Sense 6 is an ok upgrade for the earlier Sense.
Icons became more flatter "trend for all vendors now"
It's easily customizable, snappy fast ... and isn't RAM hungry as my previous Note 3.
Blinkfeed became my primary news source... I update it through WiFi in the morning... and read the news offline throughout the day "using offline reading feature".
Sense 6 added the ability to change system fonts... but actually I prefer the default font.
The phone gets a bit warm upon using intensive apps and 3D games for a long time.
I love Wallpapers of the homescreen... nicely done.
There are some features like "raising phone to ear to auto answer calls"... it's a fancy feature that I use always.
The front facing speakers are the finest quality speakers I experienced on any smartphone.
Guess what... they are even better without the beats audio integration... noticably louder than the One M7 and the Note 3.
It's not only about louder sounds ... but the quality is really superior.
Battery life is very important for me.... I work in a 12-hours shifts schedule... with no nearby power outlets.
I'm always 3G connected to update my e-mail, check facebook & twitter, whatsapp texting etc.
When I was using the One M7 I had to rationalize my usage... turn off mobile data sometimes... lower brightness.
But using the new One M8 ... I don't even think about turning of my 3G data.... thanks to the new Snapdragon 801 SoC.
Watching a 2 hour movie, drains only 24% of the battery which is excellent.
Even when the battery reaches the red zone... I activate the extreme power saving mode... till I get home.
On that mode... 10% of juice is sufficient to keep the M8 alive for 1 day.
I'm not a professional photographer,
I love the HDR shots I took using the M8.
The front facing shooter is perfect.... It's a selfie machine!.... It's the highest quality front facing camera I've ever experienced.
(Comarping to Samsung S3, Note 3, HTC One M7 and iPhone 4s)
I was amazed by the low light shooting capabilities .... the device doesn't even need the flash to fire in low light.... and the results are always good!
Panorama shots are fascinating and easy to shoot.
Minimum focusing distance for marco shots isn't so good.
Portraits are very good... portraits I shoot resemble shots from professional cameras.
U Focus "bokeh effect" results are sometimes fascinating and sometimes unnatural.
My previous smartphones:
HTC Sensation XL, Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 4S, HTC One M7, Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Just got this phone after having a hard time trying to decide whether I should get the iPhone 5s or m8 and I got to say that I'm very very satisfied with my phone :D
I don't know why people keep complaining about the camera !! Its improved and it takes decent photos ! But people like some blind fan boys keep just saying stuff because they compare phones according to the specs sheet !
I'm using this device and I can guarantee you that you'll be happy with it :D
First of all Lemme tell you since the first day this phone has captured a lot of peoples attention. I take my phone people are wow is that new M8
and trust me after seeing it half of my friends bought M8. now talking about the phone the screen size is just perfect, battery lasts longerrrrrrrrrrr
and the camera its the BEST..I love taking selfies and this one will just blow your mind off with its awesome front facing camera. The phone is light weight,
very nice gun metal finish and wat I love the most is the extreme battery saver...Nowadays my phone actually lasts more than a day without charging....The audio
is amazing for all you music lovers out there...and not have to press the power button every time i wanna check my time is the best thing ever...
I love this phone..Thank you HTC
