I HATE that I keep reading articles from The Verge and Huffington Post that are purposely comparing this phone the the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and calling it "inferior" and a "big letdown". This phone is awesome! 1080p Display, 3 GB Ram, 32GB Internal, Up to 128GB External!, and a whopping 20.7 Shooter,...come on. The specs are stupid good. The only reason I didn't get the M8 was because of the camera, now that they got the Ultra Pixel moved to the front where it belongs, and a respective 20.7 Shooter on the back, I WILL seriously be considering picking this device up when it releases.

Hey HTC leave crappie OS like hangroid stick with Windows platform... Windows 10 is Coming!
AnonD-369961, 02 Mar 2015i don't understand, s6 beats m9 yet people prefer m9 or anything over s6. s6 has better design... more"better design better specs"? HTC has probably the best design ever.. and better specs?? Exynos chipset, Mali GPU, 2550 mAh battery... how about no?
AnonD-369961, 02 Mar 2015i don't understand, s6 beats m9 yet people prefer m9 or anything over s6. s6 has better design... moreProbably because the S6 removed three key features. The S6 has no SD card slot, switched to a non removable battery, and is no longer water resistant. Also the M9(20.7MP) now has a better camera than the S6(16MP) and 2.1ghz is really not that much better than 2ghz. Also at the S6's wastefully high resolution the performance will probably be worse than the M9's. Not to mention that with it's lower resolution and larger battery, the M9 will last much longer than the S6.
What I am sad to not see in either is the new USB 3.1 reversible plug. I still have a year to upgrade so I am waiting on the M10 and S7. Both with wireless charging and USB 3.1 hopefully
You should have make a 5.2 inch display with the rest of stuff, htc you repeated your product twice in two years,htc you can do better,i love the phones you make.
AnonD-369961, 02 Mar 2015i don't understand, s6 beats m9 yet people prefer m9 or anything over s6. s6 has better design... mores6 looks like an iPhone, has a smaller battery, lower camera, and no expandability. For me, those are very important features to have, that's why we prefer the HTC
AnonD-369961, 02 Mar 2015i don't understand, s6 beats m9 yet people prefer m9 or anything over s6. s6 has better design... moreHTC's Sense UI is better (in terms of stability and speed) than Samsung's TouchWiz. S6's hardware sure is better than M9's, I agree on that. Design is okay on both phones, nothing spectacular.
I'm not a Sammy fan, but i have to say the design looks good on the S6. Specs look great, but there's always a but... I don't really care the back doesn't come off, but not having an SD card and waterproof is a BIG BIG MINUS!!! They will probably release again 1000 versions of it, screwing their customers - proof they don't care about clients but profit..
On the other hand, M9 looks a lot better, had sd card, but still no waterproof.. :( is it that difficult to make it so?!
2015 is Sony's year.. sorry all u sammy or htc fans..
i don't understand, s6 beats m9 yet people prefer m9 or anything over s6. s6 has better design better specs better fetures better camera
Was expecting USB 3.0, not the boring microUSB. I may just buy an old iphone for the connector, but those front facing speakers I cannot resist.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Those speakers are good. If you knew that the m8 wasnt gonna be a compact device then why did ... moreThe size isn't a problem for me, but it just feels dumb when I don't happen to have any real use for them - I'd rather have a 5.5-inch screen without unnecessary increased body size. LG G3 was my first choice for my next phone after SGS4, but it wasn't in stores back then... A damn shame!
Dont see the point in being able to record in 2K when the main display is a mere 1080p. Completely pointless feature
AnonD-101063, 02 Mar 2015LG G3 which was voted best smartphone of 2014 still have got enough in it to be called best by... moreSo many difference sources names different phones as the phone of 2014. Some named the HTC M8 as the best smartphone of 2014.
