so...you know more of this, final product will not be like this in terms of hardware/design?
You'd think some people only just discovered the word Bezel.
It's the same size as the original one and the M8 has a bigger screen, so what's your point?
Perhaps no one makes a LCD screen of the size that would be needed to fill the space. Also I think HTC are wiser to keep the overall size relatively similar.
Samsung on the other hand have almost created another Galaxy note with their s5.
BTW that guy must be on crack or something what a crap review.
ami, 03 Mar 2014Dear GSMARENA- The long awaited successor - long awaited by who? The fifteen people who bough... moreYes, judging by the fact that HTC One was crowned the phone of the year, the fact it has been long recognized as the best aluminum body Android (one that can actually fight with iPhone) and the fact that even Google made a "Google Edition" with that phone -- 15 people sounds just about right (to those in denial of facts).
AnonD-39334, 03 Mar 2014Hope the camera will not be plague with purple tint like on the HTC One.it seams M8 doesn't have this problem anymore, at 5:50 both cameras are open and both lenses are covered, No purple hue on M8
look at the purple hue during the camera test on HTC one when he puts phones down on the bed, it is the HTC M7 camera problem [purple hue in low light] everybody taking about, but M8 doesn't have that problem anymore, at 5:50 both cameras are open and both phones are on the bed, No purple hue on M8
Dear GSMARENA- The long awaited successor - long awaited by who? The fifteen people who bought the last one?
it finished with me it is no change at all same as galaxy 5 .. both crap .. will se how lg g3 and ip 6 will look like .. hope NOT disappoint
AnonD-39334, 03 Mar 2014Hope the camera will not be plague with purple tint like on the HTC One.The Purple tint is hardware issue which is under warranty. I've got it repaired from HTC service center.
By the way, to those complaining about the size of the whole device : from my experience with a really small bezel, though I do like this small footprint, I must confess I have a harder time playing games with virtual pads than I used to. Your thump is like stuck to your palm in a really uncomfortable position.
And not all games support gamepads on OTG.
But that's just my opinion.
This kid is higher than Towelie.
And kinda stupid to have made this video, where you even get to see his face. Now his parents are gonna destroy him BOTH for doing this and smoking pot.
very tempting.! I want this piece of craftsmanship.. btw, i also want a nokia lumia 1520.
Kopi-O-Siew-Dai, 03 Mar 2014WP sucks. I can see the future that WP will cease to exist anymore.but nokia is doing well
Hope the camera will not be plague with purple tint like on the HTC One.
AnonD-225918, 03 Mar 2014This phone is cr*ap. Not really, but htc spoiled us with an amazing one, and now this phone, w... moreThey moved to fast.. until hardware no longer can keep up. No more incentive for people to get new phones.
Grow the phone so huge in just a few years.. 2,4,8 now even 16 cores just to keep smooth..
Now they are all burnt out.
And Apple is just beginning to come in .. and their customer is still pleased with 4 inches and smooth with just dual cores.
This year belongs to apple.
This is a mega leak.
From a HTC marketing point it's maybe 2 week's early, but it is-all good.
Now we wait for the release!
This phone is cr*ap. Not really, but htc spoiled us with an amazing one, and now this phone, with on screen buttons, again huge bezels, waste of space (really, htc, is it so important to put your logo there? It is already on the back, think about the functionality, screen could've been so much bigger, or phone shorter, hello...) is a step back, even with stronger hardware. I am keeping my one for now, and will move to z2 probably.. had z1 for some time, z2 should be much better (cause of bigger screen), it's just a bit too big. A shame really, that leak where the phone is in dark gray and russian interface, with almost no bezels, that was a.m.a.z.i.n.g., the best phone ever IMO. This has no soul, like first one had, it lost that "sth special" about it. Designers had a bad day (year) at htc and samsung (for cpl. of years i guess :).
AnonD-158222, 03 Mar 2014oh man.. kid that made the review is dead, so dead.. HTC contacted him through Twitter and the... moreI hope it's true that this isn't the final device, in terms of hardware, because I still can't get over how huge those bezels are. And worse, the stupid band at the bottom with the HTC log. Such a waste of space. I hate that they may be getting ride of the capacitive buttons.
