Anonymous, 22 Apr 2014Pls proivde feedback about camera result? 4 ultra mega pixal? The camera is well performed in low light conditions and the dual tone led flash helps keep the white balance nice and neat. The camera truly shines when there is lot of light let into it. The second camera on the back catches depth of the field and other information. This helps you to refocus the shot after you have taken it. The front wide 5MP camera is great for selfies. In all the camera interface is also very good on the M8. The cameras on the phone are just awesome.

i am sure that i will buy this phone when it's be availble in my country "Lebanon"
I promised you guys that I will add a detailed review here once I got this phone. I bought this phone last Friday, as I promised here is my review.
Build quality and design
The first impression is its lovely design with excellent built quality. I bought this in gun metal colour. This one is quite heavier and taller than the previous model. Although, it's not a big issue, it's perfectly fit to my hand and pocket. Its curved shave is really comfortable to my hands. I can't even feel that I'm holding a phone. This phone doesn't come with water resistance; although, I'm pretty sure it can survive in water.
The display is really gorgeous. It's more vivid and sharp colours with compared to the M7. The display is really fast responsive and no any delays at all. I saw on a article mentioning that HTC M8 has the fastest responsive display over any smart phone, which is not a lie because I feel it.
Performance and battery life
Performances are really impressive. I haven't faced any single of lagging so far. Similarly, the battery life also good. I can use around 9-10 hrs by heavy usage and 15-18 hrs by moderate usage. Ultra battery saving mode gives really impressive results when your battery life is low.
I know this is the most important item that everyone concerns.I can say this time that Duo Camera is not a gimmick. It’s has TWO lenses: one actually takes the photo and the other collects depth information, allowing for some amazing effects and wizardry with what HTC calls the Ultrapixel Duo Cam.
Give a chance to this one. The camera performance are really improved with compared to the previous one. Photos are really sharp and vibrant and low-light performance has improved further. Not only the rear camera, but also the 5 mp front camera is superb.
Do not worry about lack of Beats Audio integration. Because Beats are completely useless. I feel the music quality is better even without Beats. The frontal dual speakers have improved further more with superb music clarity and great volume.
The new Sense 6 is almost same as the previous one but slightly different. The navigation buttons are now on the display. Overall the new Sense 6 is smoother and faster than the old version.
Overall HTC M8 is a great phone with lot of upgrades. You will never regret once you buy this. This phone comes with additional features such as motion gestures, dot view case and really cool camera features.
Give it a chance.
officially not available in India its officially announced but will be available form may 7

Only built-in file manager that allow data transfer from internal to external storage on KitKat 4.4.2
So, lack of built-in file manager make the *"external memory card slot" remain useless for now
Hope theres a fix/update on KitKat and/or HTC for this matter

This model has a barometer. :)
Which makes it almost perfect. All its missing is FM Transmitter (not to be confused with FM Radio) (receive).
Also, it has been mentioned by others that HTC has a smoother UI than some of the other android phones out.
I've been using m8 for quite a time. Simply de best phone overall is good as a cake but still lacks a camera feature which seems a bit annoying !!!! Overall my ratings would be 8/10 :)) slippery as wet but I would say handle with care u won't regret going for this phone ... Cheers
congratulations folks....for the first time htc played smartly over samsung with affordable price tag. go for it
dear feinds,htc drops file manager for security. but you can command apps and games install in sd. setting>storage>storage setting>update all then you can choose sd card.i have one dual and install all games ,viber,instagram,wechat,adobe reader,es file explorer,fastdic,clean master and .... on sd card. if anyone like to have file manager,download es file explorer or Bluetooth file transfer.
Badal88, 21 Apr 2014What about HDMI port?HDMI port is for connect to a TV, computer monitor or projector through a HDMI cable.
It's the same scenario as VGA out put of a laptop that connecting to a projector.
Sure. It's available in India. http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_launches_the_one_m8_desire_816_and_desire_210_in_india-news-8334.php
Raaj Mangat, 21 Apr 2014Are u sure,but not avaliable in india.7th may - India availability....INR 49900/-.colours- gray and silver....gold colour to be available later
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2014Any chance that there might be a dual sim version of this?Lets hope so!
And would be even better if HTC One M8 Dual Sim offer both sim 1 & sim 2 slots interchangeable function between GSM & CDMA, that will give great flexibility even more! (HTC One M7 Dual Sim only offer interchangeable function on sim 1 slot).
Also, since HTC doesn't come with a built-in File Explorer/Manager, hopefully there will be a fix or update on Android Kitkat 4.4.2 that allow internal-external storage data transfer (with no root needed), otherwise the memory external slot will remain useless.
