Sammy, 08 May 2016Why does my battery life go down so quick? Even with economical mode.Hi Sammy,
First it's about android 5.0.1 this version has a huge issue with google services which kill you batt. Also it about octa-core shitty optimized Snapdragon 615. You can observ battery isse in each phone which use this chip. And ofcource it's HTC software really poor otimizatin.
After I got 6.0 Marshmellow issue with battery is solved. I have aroud 14-16hrs in normal use. At 5.0.1 I've got aroun 8-10hrs without charching. Camera stay the same quality no optimization was done by HTC.
Did you do the upgrade? Can you explain what is new? What works and what doesn't?
Eastern europe Ukraine, just got Android 6.0!
I hope HTC solved major issues with battary life( ~12hrs) and camere(poor quality in dark,smearing and high cnontrast).
I own this phone for half-year, and it really disapointed me(previus was Sony Z2) in equal prices Z2 beat this M8s down in all position(exept glass back).
Hope update to 6.0 resolve my issues(hope atleast a battary life to reach 16-20hrs in regular use with 3g).
There is a Confirmation Which i got from HTC for the m8s there is no Release date but its on its way soon.
Loved everything about the phone.
One of the best phones , i have used.
Would highly recommend

AnonD-488502, 16 Mar 2016My device using wifi easily.Mine has WiFi glitch.it has production defects.the screen on left side near SIM card slot is rocking back and forth.it makes cracking SOUND. Finally it dosent have IR.
"Regarding your question, i would like to inform you that HTC One M8S will receive the upgrade for Android 6, but for the moment we do not have any confirmed date for the release. The phone is still in testing with our engineers from Taiwan, and when the tests will finish, and we will have a confirmed date for the release, we will post it on www.htc.com."
It is an error in the thehnical specifications about infrared port???
It has infrared port or not??
I think it was the worst choice when I bought. There is no any support or update for this model. I bought this because of financial reason instead of the M9, but I have few HTC flagships before this phone. I never thought that they will do this with the M8s, and those costumers who bought it. I'm disappointed in HTC at all... Not recommended to buy.
mdt15, 23 Mar 2016Until now, someone has received Android 6 on m8s?si
Hello users of HTC M8S,
Recently, yesterday, I have send a mail to HTC about the update of this phone. So, apears that ultil now nothing is for sure. It's expected to received the update in April, but nothing it's sure. REMEMBER THAT IS THE OFFICIAL ANSWER FROM HTC.
If you want, it will be helpful to send more users a mail, to put a pressure on them. And, put the asewers here, like me.
I hope to receive the update, because otherwise I will end with HTC, I will buy a NEXUS, for sure.
Is anyone else finding this phone is terrible for picking up WiFi? I'm going to have to update my bill plan because I need to rely so heavily on mobile data due to the inability to get any meaningful signal from my (previously trusted) WiFi networks. This is driving me crazy, I really regret getting this phone.
