Andrew Tan, 04 Jun 2014To be honest, once you own it then you know the camera ain't that bad.
Performance wise it'... morereally??
Z2 and S5 superb fast already
I have tried these phones
The speed not much significant different.
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2014Why sales suffer:
- Higher prices than the competition
- Worse camera than the competition... moreOther than this,
Better build quality than competitor
Better speaker than competitor
Better polish Android than competitor
Way smooth user experience than competitor
I believe the M8 is a good phone. Love the way it looks. HTC has been making phones with a solid feel and build. Sony came out with glass around it with a very classic and elegant look, Samsung phones are just too plastic-ky and light to really feel like a premium product.
So far from friends using all 3 flagships, it seems that M8 and S5 tends to lag more after awhile while the Z2 still seems the fastest. THis is probably due to the minimal bloatware installed although yes less of a software suite than its competitors.
Samsung seems to have more hardware faults too after a year or 2 of usage so far from what i've seem and spoken to with cellphone repair shops. Usually the USB port problem as the most common.
HTC and Sony still proven solid after long term usage (2-4 yrs).
My preference will still be a Z2 over the others.
HTC m8 WAS doing well.......................then the z2 was released
It's pretty obvious to happen with the htc even for small baisc config this brand charge where is the brang like samsung motorolla sell the same at the resonable price...............
How will HTC sales go up?
1. Remove that big HTC logo in front consuming a lot of space
2. Remove that 4UP camera sh!t
having had the one+ it was a good product. but the camera is ok on the One/M8. nothing as good as S5. but it does the job. my niggle don't like the Sense UI. i think when a company makes a phone. it should be available as Vanilla Android. And then Sense UI or Tocu Wiz or whatever.
To be honest, once you own it then you know the camera ain't that bad.
Performance wise it's superb smooth, Samsung S5 or Sony Z2 no way near it.
No regret selling off my Note 3 and getting this M8.
HTC you need better marketing and also higher up a bit that UltraPixel to at least 8MP.
Maybe the HTC One M8 is selling well, but the other models are not. HTC has to leverage on the One brand more, before its too late.

You'll change your statement once you realize Samsung is failing too, believe me. Most people like you based your opinions on the winning side. If the news says HTC's sales up, it's either you're not here commenting or saying things otherwise.
Why sales suffer:
- Higher prices than the competition
- Worse camera than the competition
- Terrible marketing
cant stand the suckiest 4mp camera it suck...... everything else is the best
Logan at o2-UK, 04 Jun 2014Theory is flawed as iphone outsells both samsung and lg flagships with no removable battery or... moreYour theory is also flawed considering that iPhones run on a different OS. Those who like ios more have no choice but to stick with the no sd card slot and removable battery. In the android world, samsung outsells the competition because of those two things.
No surprise, people been asking for a camera that is in line with current trends, instead HTC removed the only good thing abt the camera, the OIS, and adds something super gimmicky, total uselessness. Another thing is why it is a mile long, its only a 5 incher but is longer than the dreaded Xperia Z1.
The One E8 fixes the camera and could sell well in some markets but to make it an international success they need to come up with a single sim version (and of course regular LTE support).
The new One Mini cost about twice as much as it is worth, its doomed.
Bottom line, HTC had the chance but blew it, they knew the users wanted card slot and a better camera. In addition comes the horrors of the past, the way HTC treated customers with defective phones was horrible and will not be forgotten so easily. I think thats the main reason, HTCs crimes of the past.
Ahayt, 04 Jun 2014Have you heard of "Halo Effect"?
Your view is the perfect example for it.Ummm...no it's not.
He went in with an open mind and pleased with one over another. If you go in and choose the M8 over S5 can we say the same of you?

Anonymous, 04 Jun 2014well, I guess the htc one E8 is better for u then.Nope. I still can't stand those huge bezels.
