Oh man! I need a new phone next 2 weeks, I am already set in getting the M8. I can not wait for another 3 months before the M9 hits the market. Ughhh...
Good to see the display is 5 inches and 1080p full. 2K is pretty much useless. Finally HTC has listened and didn't go for the UltraPixel crap. This is going to be a beast!

And Note 3 is priced correctly now for what it offers. But anyway, if you have enough money to get Note 4, why not? That is the best Android has to offer, right now.
Well done HTC on being so boring as usual. 5" is so small, ruins the device, and where has your one max successor gone? I'd like a 6.4" display just like my stunningly beautiful Sony Z Ultra, but HTC are too boring to do that.
Anonynous, 29 Dec 2014So it still 5 inch, good, but the size remains that of a 5.3 inch phone, not good. yes but, that 5.3 inch phone, doesn't have 2 amplified speakers :)
What of the battery? HTC has been known for batteries with low capacities.
Cod3rror, 29 Dec 20141080p is great news! QHD is a waste! 3GB RAM though, not great. Should've been 4GB.Lollipop comes with anew runtime that makes any non-native application (which about everything that is not a benchmark or game) use less RAM by default. 3GB is plenty.
Naughty-Indian, 29 Dec 2014HTC not deceived by the increasing display size trend.... Good to hear that. Will soon rock th... moreI seriously hope so. I will always have a soft spot for htc because of the evo 4G era. The M series has been pretty popular, but I haven't been a big fan of their design decisions these last couple of years.
Plz HTC. plz, plz. I want to get rid my $$$ for this beast. Plz take my money...
Great specs. This will be a beast. More than 1080p display is useless. There is no difference between a 1080p and 1440p for human eye anyway. 1440p will just cause fast battery drain and low performance.
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2014What would make this phone perfect is if the battery is at least 3000mAh and is user-replaceable.If they put a user replaceable battery they can't make it metal. Plastic with user replaceable battery or metal with with a sealed battery i think metal with sealed battery is better.
awesome specs for the flagship htc.. this is so good to resist.. launch this @40k in india, then this can even decimates nexus 6 nd note 4
Muthu, 29 Dec 2014Why don't you get Note 3, which is great value for money now? If you need a phone (not a phabl... moreI don't really mind a phablet, to be honest. I am actually considering Note 4 right now, as it seems to be the best option in the current market. Its camera, beautiful display and battery performance probably make the Touchwiz a little more bearable.
