Anonymous, 11 Aug 2014wow well some one is a windows fan actully android is a very good bisness platform i am a brai... moreYeah, and i'm Einstein himself, having nothing better to do,but talkong avout devices in gsmarena. First: If you still don't know after all this years of learning "surgery" that you don't work as a buiseness man, but you have a highly demending job, that requires love, care and will to heal people even if they don,t have money, i for sure won,t let you operate in a hospital. The funny part is, your motivs:)). Man, a reliavle device for emergency for sure it is not a smartphone, just cause it's battery SUCKS. And, android ones, are even worse, and now i don't want to talk about their low end quality even if it costs 600$. So, now, what he said is kind of true. Wp kind of hit's the businness class, cause is more reliable and efficient then android.
Gonkun, 11 Aug 2014another android killer.Why is it an android killer?
WP does the lags + is a boring tile.
Samsung is killing in sales.
HTCis only making this to prove WP is dead
Ivan Croatia, 11 Aug 2014WP OS is ugly and complicated.
No logic whatsoever.
To find a sms, phone or browser is... moreIvan from Hrvatska
I'm 1000% that you didn't have WP in your hand.
In your homescreen you have icon for sms, call or browser. So if that's hard to pres it and find it I feel sorry for you. Maybe It's borring for you if you find app that you want in 1 second. Maybe you like to scroll 50 seconds to find the right app...
I'm suprised that you are on W7. you should have W 95...
Already 16 comments, and nobody has yet spoken about the elephant in the room, i.e. 4MP ultra pixel camera. If there is one aspect which would kill the sales of this smartphone, it would that camera. HTC's inability to learn from its mistakes is astonishing and unbelievable. I am still not able to belive HTC is making the same mistake 3rd time (M7, M8 and now this).
Jellybean, 10 Aug 2014Fab. Android is for geeky kids who like to fiddle; it's useless as a business platform. Now at... morewow well some one is a windows fan actully android is a very good bisness platform i am a brain surgan that nedds a good fast reliable phone for work in case there is an emergicy.
Aide Mc, 11 Aug 2014Doesn't matter, no one want develop apps for WP anymore, it's a sinking ship! Recent milestones for the Windows Phone Store indicate that's simply not true.
In android this htc m8 doesn't sale good. How much more to those wp fan. Plenty lf bad comment on m8 that's why people dont buy this phone. Now they just change the os. Better make new one and the os is wp. I go nokia if i want wp.

AdrianZ, 11 Aug 2014Can HERE Maps be installed on HTC or Samsung WP phones? :)It is quite possible that all Nokia Maps are available to All Windows phones and just not Nokia
This is why Nokia Maps are now known as "Here Maps" and "Here Drive" and the cross licensing agreements after Microsoft took over Nokia
Whilst you do get Nokia Maps which can be used offline so no data charges thus maybe the only plus
As the phones have the exact same specifications, the Android version sits head and shoulders above the Windows 8 given extremely poor state of the Windows App store, corresponding app on Window maybe Beta versions or may not even work at all
Erna, 11 Aug 20142GB is more than enough for Windows 8.1 to flawlessly work...Yeah, 2GB is massive for WP.
Obvi the windows 8 HTC One is gonna be the same shit just running a different OS.
If HTC doesn't release this on all carriers it will fail.
No one is going to switch to Verizon and get bent over just for a Windows Phone.
