Bought the M8s based on what I read here only, gave it as an XMas gift... just got the bummer phone call... there is NO IR port on this model.
X-Ray, 05 Dec 2015If you want at least a decent camera, don't buy it!
After returning the first, I decided to... moreUnfortunately, the lack of detail is a big minus to its 13MP camera .The 5 MP front camera is not up to the desired expectations either. By comparing photos, they are weaker than those made with HTC Desire 500 which has only 1.6 MP camera.
I don't know if other One M8s users met this issue, but my pictures taken with the front camera have a lot of black pixels which can be seen when zooming in.
- Design is beautiful
- Screen is lovely and is clear in daylight
- No IR blaster
- Battery life is horrendous
- The phone lags too often to be a 'rare occasion'
- Facebook messenger is almost unusable on it
- The front facing camera seems to make everything look huge, making selfies very difficult
- The rear facing 13 MP camera is bad due to its lens.
Would I recommend? No. Absolutely not. For the same price, you could get the M8, which despite being 6 months older, is more powerful and is seemingly better in every way.
I order online the HTC ONE M8s and I'm waiting after 4-5 days. With this smartphone I want to realize the dream of using HTC ONE M8, which is for sure better, but also I saw a lot of compliments for HTC ONE M8s. I like a lot the design, metal body, and also a grey color. I hope for good experience and expectations. Of course after one month I going to tell about that.
I own the phone but I could never find any info about quick charging support. Not even on htc's product pages. Does it support some kind of rapid or quick charging technology?
AnonD-463833, 14 Dec 2015HTC already announced that it will upgrade the One M8s flagship to the upcoming Android 6.0 OS... moreDude.. sadly saying that m8s isnot a flagship. But atleast it will get mashmallow for god sake!
HTC already announced that it will upgrade the One M8s flagship to the upcoming Android 6.0 OS. The Taiwanese tech giant also announced that they will rollout Marshmallow update along with the Sense 7 UI. So HTC One M8s users will see major changes user interface with Android 6.0 update.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow software will come with new features and improvements. On top of Marshmallow sweet treats is the most coveted Sense 7.0 UI of HTC.

The camera quality is same as on htc desire 626 like water color paintings as you said. Tired of hearing all the cons all over the internet. People are cheated in this way its not good.

After returning the first, I decided to give it a second chance, I really wanted to like this phone, I liked the display, the construction quality, the sound, Sense interface, etc., BUT the camera is abysmal! No matter how many updates it got, it still can't take an acceptable photo or video. Images lack detail and sharpness, as if over-processed, they look like watercolor paintings. In videos, it is very slow to focus and sometimes it doesn't manage to refocus at all (yes, I unchecked the option "Lock focus in videos"). The dynamic range is virtually nonexistent - if you want to get the sky right, the rest of the image is almost completely dark. If you get the rest of the image right, the sky is always just white. The colors are all over the place - greens are yellow-ish, red is pink, etc.
My antique Nokia E72 takes superior pictures in all respects and situations. The highlights are always blown out and faces always look weird with very bright and very dark areas at the same time. I know a little about photography, I'm not a pro, but I regularly use a DSLR camera and several other compact ones. This camera is the worst I've ever seen on any phone.
It's really a shame HTC has gone so low. I've been using their phones ever since their first Pocket PC devices with Windows Mobile but I can no longer recommend them. I paid almost 400 euros for this phone and I feel cheated.
AnonD-441798, 12 Nov 2015HTC one m8s will get Marshmallow too in Q1 2016Yeah, and when i asked for it on twitter they denied. Thoug, on their official web site the m8s is listed for the upgrade.
