John N, 29 May 2014If the only downgrade is the plastic body then I can live with that. As far as I am concerned... moreTotally agree .... they should have first gained market share and try different stuff instead they tried to do it at same time and screwed up big time and now coming up with different version to fix their damages. Was irritated with them when they launched HTC one. .. it was like hey guys here is the most beautiful phone for u but live with crappy camera
If the only downgrade is the plastic body then I can live with that.
As far as I am concerned, the removal of the ultra pixel camera is a major upgrade.
lol, 29 May 2014Exactly. HTC had a good opportunity to compete with galaxy ..they are screwing themselves ever... moreagree with you .. HTC M8 is a let down by its ultrapixel camera .. M7 too received poor reviews for its camera but they didnt learn anything..
guessing from M8 Ace , there will be normal camera in the next versions..
even with poor camera, M8 is doing well to eat galaxy S5s share
lol, 29 May 2014Galaxy S5 was already killed .. thats y it comes with Bandaid back cover :Plol .. good one
Anonymous, 28 May 2014I truly hope the capacity of the battery won't be just 2600 mAh. HTC has done enough ridiculou... moreExactly. HTC had a good opportunity to compete with galaxy ..they are screwing themselves every single time. Why in heck they tried that ultrapixel have no idea... it is the major con in every other review and another major point is thir phone size to screen space ratio. The M8 is just too big for a 5 inch screen. And the front speakers are useless for me.

Meh, 28 May 2014WTF!?!? How can they have M8 (Metal-8) in its name if its made from plastic?How do you know for certain that's what the M stands for?

I truly hope the capacity of the battery won't be just 2600 mAh. HTC has done enough ridiculous mistakes! what's wrong with them?!
It's good that they ditched the 4 MP camera, but there better be OIS in the Ace.
A polycarb body means better reception. And ditching the cruddy 4 UPixel camera will be a major vote-winner. This is really what the M8 One should have been. Metal bodies are cold and heavy reception-wreckers. Now all they need is to create a 4.7" version with a 768 x 1280 (yes, 16:10) screen, mount the off-button on the side and you're looking at a true great.
looks amazing, specs too. if capacity battery will be some bigger it will be owesome.
i think i am gona have this ONE in my birthday.
If it's going to be that cheap with the super fast processor, 13mp cam with polycarbonate body, then I'm definitely up for this fone!! Keeping my fingers crossed!! B-)
One would think that the only reason anyone buys HTC these days is its nice looking metallic body. So what is this model good for? Why not make a powefull AND pretty phone from the start..
Aaaaaaand now anyone that bought the on-release metal version and wound up disliking the price or the camera is going to wind up feeling like a chump.
