Had resound, to Apple 5, back to droid w the M8. Love the phone. Design, sexy. Camera, despite the negative reviews I've seen, I like it. Could've been better but it has a fast focus and snaps one after another quickly. Flash is very bright. Interface, superb. Voice recognition and understanding is just about flawless. Siri doesn't stand a chance. ONLY COMPLAINT: it's a killer for me and over seen by many. You lose a lot of screen space w the notification bar on top, the menu buttons on bottom and the must have icon dock on top of that. Total lost space is just about 1.5" all together. 1" whenever you're not on the home screen. That bites. I feel I get cheated in the "bigger screen". SOLUTION: allow the notification bar to hide, the dock icons is a must have but the menu touch buttons below could've been on the bottom frame of the phone. "htc" centered logo should be the home button, the other 2 menu buttons beside it. Simple. For that reason I'm considering the Samsung. I hope HTC sees this and considers it on future phones. Otherwise, good phone.

This is a common problem that every phone camera has. Because, phone cameras has a small image sensor, unlike DSLR or digital cameras.
After three weeks with M8 I can confirm that phone is very stable and quick and only problems is very rubbish emaill uplication it's really bad and lock screen luck of customisation .
Great phone and very good buttery life .
Camera is just ok .

Megapixel amount doesn't reflect the quality of a photo. It's refer the resolution of a photo. Most people don't understand this. The quality of a camera depend on lens quality, image sensor or aperture size. Most people believe that higher megapixel cameras always give better quality photos than a lower megapixel camera. HTC don't concern about mp amount, they don't fool people by showing higher megapixels. All they focus on superiority of their cameras.
I'm currently using HTC M7. I have compared M7 camera with many high-end phones such as Galaxy s4, Lumia 925 and Xperia Z1. M7 can definitely beat S4 and Lumia 925. Some time it's even better than even Z1.
I hope that M8 camera will be even better.
phone got much more smooth and better user experience than before, but why HTC still not making phone without damage always first shipment phoe shell have dent , i was wonder what the standed for their Q.C i have an Rogers one its not look like brand new its look like used one . Why

Samsung s5 is a greet, support for 3g video call

the lens size and how much light it lets in will determine how little noise in the picture is produced which then gives a cleaner looking picture,plus the camera cpu chip.
iphone 5s 8mp camera has a much better lens size and imaging chip than the 13mp-20mp of the z1,
