I see you all discussing which one is better- 930 or this one? I think they all look great! One may have better speakers and micro sd card slot, but Lumia... Did anyone actually had M8 in one hand and 930 in other?!? I had and have to say that I found 930 much more stylish, especially in white color! Anyway, both phones are great and worth buying. I just hope that One won't stay Verizon exclusive for so long like Lumia 930 was. And WP 8.1... No words to tell how happy it makes me aftrr all these crappy Androids!
I believe HTC do this as obligation or getting paid by Microsoft. It just doesn't make sense

They just placed a regular sized sensor that has less amount of pixels so that the pixel size will be larger to let in more light. This thing has been known for ages now. Nothing new. Duh.
I don't have a windows phone and i would like to get one and i was hoping this phone would not have the ultrapixel camera but i guest i will have to wait for the lumia 1020 successor.
Oh confirmed. This HTC One (M8) for Windows will have 5 Ultra Pixels camera.

It rarely takes decent photos. I don't use it as a camera, because I don't need one... Still, it's a bad camera on a great phone.
er,stereo speakers,ok,possibly,but i see no hint of speakers on front.
i thought one of the realy nice things that folk go on about is the outstanding sound from the stereo front panel speakers on M8 (android).
so even if it does turn out to be the next hd2,about bloody time too,we may have to put up up with second best on audio.
why ? i thought M8 (8.1) was excactly the same as M8/E8 just tweaked to run ms phone 8.1 ?
Dave, 16 Aug 2014Nokia Lumia 930 beats this hands down.Nokia / Microsoft have followed Apple too closely and have reduced choice to develop its own ecosystem
The Lumia 930 ONLY takes 20Mp photos and that is it, no settings.
Rather than utilise technology the ultra pixel 'UP' theory came into being
Htc are faced with selling a phone, and selling UP as well.
There are Here Maps and its free navigation, plus a new take on Home screen, App screen.
The 8.1 update will make Windows more user friendly but thus only restores some features that were removed
The M8 will be a welcome addition to Windows, but UP are an odd feature.
Given a choice, the M8 is will actually function better on Android than on Windows even though the phones have the same specifications, the apps on Windows its Achilles heel and do more damage than good
Microsoft need to purge the App market, it is better to have apps that work than bragging about numbers when they don't work and Microsoft know so
Microsoft simply will not go forward even as even if it attracts flagship Android phones to release a Windows version, most of the staple apps are missing
The M8 is the first high end phone IN YEARS (WINDOWS 8) that is not a Nokia phone, does that mean manufacturers are avoiding Windows
If only entry level phones are being made, then something else is going on
You can't upgrade on Windows 8 if all the supplier are low to mid range.
Oh, no, not that F***ingPixel thing again! Get rid of it, HTC!
Appy21, 16 Aug 2014HTC One M8 could have been the best phone this year, if and only if they had a decent camera.... :(Have you tried their camera? It's new tecnology. Accept it. In a few years, you'll see what they are capable of. You people are stupid. It doesn't have to be a 20mp to.be good.
Dave, 16 Aug 2014Nokia Lumia 930 beats this hands down.Best Joke I heard all day.
-Miles better design & build quality
-Miles better audio quality in headphones
-Miles better speakers
-Miles better display
-More than 50% more battery if it's same as Android M8
-This would probably be able to run Android too. This by itself practically makes it the best WP(and Android phone) available
Oh, and HTC>>>>>>>Microsoft/Nokia as a phone brand
Nokia was good, now it's pure trash all around except camera.
dlads, 16 Aug 2014That is a complete waste, windows mobile is a shambolic OS, anyone with a brain stem can see t... moreYou have been Sarcastim since from the college as I was your class-mates. You have never changed since
Guys if the HTC one M8 Windows phone Has exactly everything the same as the normal HTC one m8 then this could be the next HTC HD2 which can use Windows phone and Android. The development level and the interesst for the HTC one M8 may also rise for devs.
Gimmicky camera aside, this phone can take decent photos. People look too closely and compare it to 8-12mp cameras.
This phone can take great photos for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so I don't see the problem. If you want to take good photos, get a digital camera.
And don't give me the "I want a single device" because even the best by Nokia is woefully poor compared to a full price camera with optical zoom.
