The only thing i like about this handset is the build quality. The software is full of bloatware and the specs are (while top end) no better than the high end phones from last year.
I ve said always said that my perfect phone would be built by HTC, software (UI) from LG, bloatware from the Nexus range (none) and water/dust resistance from Sonim (NOT SONY).
Image clarity seems not that bad..i dont need cropping an image though..yeah..im on it..htc m8 u will be welcome in my home soon ^_^
Some of my friends telling that, if some hardware damaged in HTC, it cannot be replaced is it true ? And some are telling HTC is very hard to repair ?
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2014just bought it two hours ago very powerful and amazing . Alll people must go for itI love that htc m8 I want
very high price... nice mobile
There is no slow motion 720@120fps recording and 4k video ? High price.. :(
Is this suppose to be an enhanced model compare to HTC one? But some of the specification is slightly weaker compare to one, based on the details given here when comparing both phones, I don't get it. And the price charge is way much higher. I never try it, I hope it worths to get 1, but not with his current selling price.

AnonD-116639, 26 Mar 2014htc using the 2 mp camera for refocus feature in images.....and that feature is already availa... morehey dude...why feeling insecure...htc m8 does what it does best ...the camera everyone knows is not as good as the z2..but have u actually tested both or saw them...i have bought the m8 works brilliant...camera is ok for me...maybe not for someone else...but it does shoot good photos and excellent in low light....build , looks and sense 6 smooth...it doesnt need ddr3 or ddr4...the htc one had ddr2 but stil worked better than z1...ateast it doesnt overheat ....4k is not there agreed...720p slowmo is after the video is taken..and not simultaneous ....but atleast it works fine..no hassles .. .i have experienced sony...the z1..i didnt like it..
Having had used all android smartphones in 2013, mention it from Sony xperia z, z1, s3 & s4..HTC one X, x+HTC one...I finally found myself inthe hands of the least phone I expected to use in my life..The LG (LG G2), I was so scared what I would expect it be when I ordered it online.. When I had my hands on it, I unleashed a monster from the quite jungles of power phones....there's no 2014 phone that will beat the G2 in every aspect, the camera is excellent, the graphics, the "knock on feature" this will definitely give me a problem if intend to use another model coz I will find myself knocking on the screen instead of the old and boring power button way of waking up the phone...finally, if there is a LG G2 user around they will agree with me...I can't dump my G2 for the m8 I will wait for G3 which will change the way we look at phones, that's a downgrade.. Those who think that 4 ultra pixel camera is cool, compare it with other best cameras, u will see the difference..
i ordered 2 pieces
htc using the 2 mp camera for refocus feature in images.....and that feature is already available in Z2, L 1020....dont know why they used duo camera (gimmicky) ????.
and why there is no slow motion 720@120fps recording and 4k video ???
and 2gb DDR2 ram???? while 4gb DDR4 ram gonna hit devices 2H 2014 ......
a_!, 26 Mar 2014i d rather buy the nexus 5 for a better price i dont see a lot of differences in specsGood thinking g2,nexus 5 same specs for less..can't waste a penny on these so-called 2014 smartphones.
sammie, 26 Mar 2014I've got a Nano-sim that I reserved for the iphone 6, I think I will just use it on this monst... moreIt can't beat the g2, tho its 2013...it has competitive specs and it will remain a power house...the monster g2 runs on 3000mAh....nice graphics, m not changing my phone for these phones.. Am waiting for g3..which will smash HTC one m8, s5 and Z2......
bought it today.....tested heavily..30-40 camera shots...some gaming...sharing pictures...tested speakers...all are brilliant...i must say the camera is better and pretty good if u got the right setting...im not saying its as good as the z2 but i have not seen the z2 camera photos...but the m8 pretty much shots good photos for the average person...speakers are awesome though a little loud...keep at 40-50% for optimum sound....built and finish absolutely Stunning....battery is good..am at 53%...with
todays work and continuos wifi on...today was first day so overworked it...shud last 2 days for a casual user...i have not reached 10% to test the extreme power saver mode...overall awesome phone .
Note again: My career tell me go for m8 cus htc devices have a better optomize than sony and samy product..
Primume feel is first reason that i pick up a phone..
I have both xperia z and one and sure i tell u one faar better than z..
Z2is great but sony 's phone almost isnt same that one we see in advertise and in work has a less performance that i expected..
Specially in ui i dont think any phone come to near to sense 6 with most beautiful and charismatic usage.
What about dual speakers loudness??? Pink noise still 66.6 dB? Full review doesn't mention it only about the best audio output.Louder or the same as in One 2013?
Sky high price.
