Anonymous, 21 May 2014I can see you've never used iphone or HTC before so shut upI've owned a HTC Desire Z and my girlfriends HTC One S is also a familiar device to me. The One S has been repaired 3 times in 2 years of use. My Desire Z was a great device and it didn't break down because I dropped it too many times - the motherboard broke down, probably because of overclocking. One S has lost most of it's colors on the sides and the back, and the power button has also been quite a problem. My SGS 2 is still in a great shape, but that still doesn't mean that the only durable devices are made by Samsung. I'm sure that there are better HTC's too.
Smuti, 21 May 2014Don't feed the trolls with their tinting that get dent and scratched instantly. What would cause the device to dent and scratch instantly?
I own both the iPhone5s. M7 & the M8 & neither has even the smallest scratch,let alone a dent.
It all comes down to how careless you are. If you're the type of user who doesn't take care of your device, it'll be evident, be it made from plastic or metal.
This won't be a Gorilla Glass 3, and less than 2500 mah battery.

My SGS 2 is still in a great shape after all these years of daily use. My gilfriend's ex-Lumia and the current One S are both terrible in the terms of durability.
maybe this is the new droid dna or the butterfly,cuz it has the power button on the top,and the white lines that passes on the led flash arent the part of the phone,so if u take those lines away it look like a metal dna
niker, 20 May 2014M8 metal for 600$ and m8 plastic for 400$.... So we pay 200$ for some metal. Looks like a RIP ... moreUnlike plastic, aluminum has to be heated at very high temperature to get molded. And it requires milling and polishing afterward.
Long and expensive process for... yeah its metal very wow
django, 20 May 2014Metal is always a premium . matte finished laptops vs aluminum unibody , your take ?
Nokia ... moreAgree all.
Besides, imo all flagship models should use premium materials as they charge around 600 USD. Plastic is welcomed in mid-range models though.
In this respect I encourage pricier metal HTC M8 and affordable plastic M8 Ace strategy given that all other hardware specs. are same.
Galaxy S5 and S5 Prime is the outcome of the same strategy and hope every brand will follows this way of doing business.
just remove those front speakers or ur stupid logo in front to reduce the height of your phones HTC. If the specs are to be true ... this is a good bet and a smart buy. And to increase your sales dont go with carriers, release this on play store with stock android.
HTC and Samsung are doing well in Android but no achievement in Windows Phone at least for those who need WP, they should release phone competitive to Lumia series at least.
Waiting for WP from HTC and Samsung but till now, no good news
FlappyBert, 20 May 2014What is wrong with plastic? buy an iphone then you will just use a jelly case or plastic case?Metal is always a premium . matte finished laptops vs aluminum unibody , your take ?
Nokia n HTC use polycarbonate but they r better than samsung's quality.
Samsung didn't bother abt look n feel until now.
Anonymous, 20 May 2014hopefully HTC will regain its rightful position as a TOP smartphone manufacture ! curvy design... moreNot possible when Samsung is around.
Samsung's marketing budget is bigger than htcs yearly revenue.
hopefully HTC will regain its rightful position as a TOP smartphone manufacture ! curvy design or not, HTC is a marvelous brand.
M8 metal for 600$ and m8 plastic for 400$.... So we pay 200$ for some metal. Looks like a RIP OFF. I mean how much metal does it need? Even a 50 cent coke can has more metal than it
