Anonymous, 05 Jun 2014when i said zoom in i was talking about m8 display not pc monitor"if I take a pic and zoom in how much detail I would lose."
Is that your question? However, your question is not very clear. Do you need to zoom a photo without losing quality? I think you can zoom a photo 100% on the M8 display, but not in a computer display.
If you need to crop, 50% crop will be more accurate.

AnonD-270517, 04 Jun 2014Hi guys, I have decided to post my review based on hands-on experience for those who are st... moreDear go back to plastic forum of samsung wht r u doing here in HTC ? we are happy with our sleek n sexy design we d,t need ur opinion.
My HTC M8 not supporting "H+". Somebody help me and inform that HTC M8 supporting "H+" or not? because I used Galaxy S4 & S5 and they all support "H+". My mobile support to "H" not even LTE.
I have decided to post my review based on hands-on experience for those who are still wondering which mobile to buy:
I now have Samsung galaxy S5, and I was very unsure which mobile to buy, S5, M8 or Z2 I have red almost all articles on the web I could find and 90% of are just propaganda for M8.
S5 is the best trust me, M8 sucks, samsung S5 is very nice and beautiful when you see it live, and hold it, it doesn't have plastic look, it looks expensive as it have metal on the edges, and back side looks really great, not cheap, not plastic it looks really good.
Size is greatly balanced, H W and slimness, most of options I can use by one hand but for some opt 2 hands are needed.
It feels great in hand; screen is top noch, clear, sharp, on sun like there is no sun.
- It is waterproof, you can take pictures underwater
- Fingerprint sensor is REALY great, it works on first try, you enter your fingerprint 8 times for software to remember so after there is no mistakes, opens screen on first time, every time.
- Camera is absolutley fantastic, I have never seen so good pictures and video taken with a phone
- Health app is really great, you can read reviews online also, app si great
- Dual interenet speed, you can be conected on BOTH WIFI AND DATA and use double speed
- Milion options to customise your phone, from gestures, motion, air browse, customise evrything from locked screen apps to notification area, GREAT tools option can be activated (most used apps in one container and then it shows above everything like in the air and move it where and when you want), customisation of your settings area, you can decide where and how your settings will look and behave, super power save (black and white screen), normal power save, and more and more...
It is SUPER fast, no lags, almost incredible how it is fast and responsive
You can read comparison review here on GSM arena M8 vs. S5 and you will see that I'm telling the truth, S5 KICKS ASS out of M8 in all categories, except in two: metal casing and speakers, AND THAT IS IT.
S5 offers so much more, what do you need metal casing for? Show of your crapy phone, unbalanced, over sized in height, and that is it.
Z2 is a great phone, but couple of things I didn't like:
1. Design is too square for my taste, I see it as expensive small brick, bulk form
2. Glassy finishing on BOTH sides, OMG, that is HORRIFIC. That means that dust, filth and fingerprint smudges are all over the phone, back side and front side it looks and feels horrific
3. Lack of some options that S5 have
These ratings on the left here on GSM arena FOR S5 are false, and deliberate, WHY? Because if you now compare LG G3 and S5 they have EXCATLEY the same chipset, and S5 have better options and features, for G3 you have 8.5 and for S5 you have unrealistic 5.5
How is that possible, for excatley the same chipset, hardware, options, features you have 5.5 instead of 8.5 or 9??
asking, 04 Jun 2014which one should i go ? M8 or Z2 ? seem these two phone are nearly same.Z2 if you don't mind that dust, filth and fingerprint smudges are all over the phone, back side and front side as it have glossy finishing on both sides.
I recomend S5.
asking, 04 Jun 2014which one should i go ? M8 or Z2 ? seem these two phone are nearly same.I think it should decide by yourself. Ascertain your needs and preferences, then assess which phone can mostly satisfy your needs and preferences. Finally, make your purchasing decision.
which one should i go ? M8 or Z2 ? seem these two phone are nearly same.
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2014if i take a pic and zoom in how much detail i would loose?That depends on the screen you're viewing on and also how much you zoom in. The m8 has a 4 MP camera and unfortunately that doesn't seem like a camera from which you'd zoom and crop images.
The photo preserves details unless you zoom it to 100% or pixel-to-pixel view. To get a 100% view, use picassa viewer on PC. It looks nice and does a casual job. There is a 1:1 option beneath by which you can directly see a 100% view. Now these are is the perfect case we are talking about but we know any camera is not perfect. So you start losing details often below 100% view. 100% is the ideal case.
If you want a phone for taking photographs, don't go for m8. Take s5 then. But if you want a phone that's fast, simple and feels great, go for m8.
Have a nice day
3Zukr, 03 Jun 2014Don't think everything made in China is bad. You see, Apple's iphone is made in China. you kno... moreWho told Chinese manufactured phones have bad build quality? Indeed, HTC phones and iPhones have excellent build quality.
Actually, HTC and Apple outsource the manufacturing process to third-party Chinese companies, because they can manufacture them in low-cost than their clients do. All the quality standards set by their clients. What those third-party manufacturing companies do, they implement the manufacturing or assembling process according to the standards which given by their clients.

In China, you will get from cheapest product to most expensive product. and quality of the product varies as their price vary.

You will get "Extreme Power Saving Mode".
AnonD-269962, 03 Jun 2014thanks mate.. is there any difference of quality between the china made and taiwan made M8 ? b... moreReviewers know how to take photographs. At least decently. They know the conditions, their hands are steadier and they use appropriate modes. So their photos are bound to be better than the ones you take.
Regarding the china and vietnam thing, every company wants to minimize the manufacturing costs. Now, taiwan is the home country for HTC so they are bound to have a production centre there. Now, to keep up the worldwide demand they have to open new production centres. China is a country where labour is cheap and also manufacturing electronic goods, so it's logical for any company to choose china over another country for production. So a HTC phone can either be made in taiwan or in china. But they both have same quality standards so the products are quite identical and i don't think that's should be a matter to much of our attention. We're consumers and hence should care about how a product performs and where it's made.
Regarding the fuzzy pics on fb, tell your friends to upload better pics. When you use a high resolution screen such as the one on this phone, your eyes start taking such sharpness for granted and when you come across low resolution content, your eyes suddenly see a fuzzy image compared to the great looking sharp coontent. It's not anything wrong with your phone.
Have a nice day.
AnonD-269962, 03 Jun 2014thanks mate.. is there any difference of quality between the china made and taiwan made M8 ? b... moreI have never found a Taiwan manufactured HTC device. My HTC M8 is made in China. Regarding your Facebook photos issue, just make sure those photos and videos you watched were high resolution photos and videos. Sometimes I have even faced the similar issue when I'm watching low resolution photos & videos on Facebook.
Finally, the M8 camera is fairly poor. Nevertheless, it's not so bad.
