about to get my hands on the m8 , have been a galaxy user for the last few years , the s3 is still hard to beat , was tempted to wait for the s5 , but will see what the m8 has in store , reviews seem mixed so far
Well guys...my personal review after two days of usage.....battery life is awesome...belive me...u cant kill it in one day....i will tell u what i did
1. An hour of music..vol - 80%
2.an hour of gaming ..asphalt 8,riptide gp2,injustice.
3.50-60 photos...shared 25 of them.
5.regular voice call and stuff.....
Battery 52%...its more than my note 2 with bigger battery...sense 6 is super smooth..camera is good..better than m7
Bravo. Well done. Overall it really appears to be a smart device. Hope you bring a mini version. Maybe then I will upgrade your sexy One S .
AnonD-228259, 26 Mar 2014Let's get it right, we all expected HTC m8 to be with better specs especially with camera whic... moreThe LG software is just as bad as Samsung touchwiz. Its extremely heavy and ugly. If the UI isnt GREAT on a cell phone, there is no reason to buy it unless you root and flash. I see the only bad thing about the HTC ONE is the camera and video resolution, and they arent even that bad. I much prefer the ONE due to the software in general.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2014Higher megapixels also means the picture is bigger.
You cant zoom in very far with the M8 ... moreI can conclude that this phone is not recommended for people who wants more from the phone's camera (PROFESSIONALS)
but I think this is useful for everyone who wants to keep it simple.
Lesser pixels means lesser picture's size, so it's good for everyone who wants a nice, lightwight picture.
Fantastic sexyyyy phone that ive seen..
Both in with brilliant sense 6 and out with unique aluminum body.
Wisely move by htc..
I want it more than o2 for breath.
AnonD-92238, 25 Mar 2014Bigger bezels, 4 MP (forgive me, UltraPixel) dual camera, lesser battery. Isn't that enough??Haha! Thought as much :S So nothing really then. Shame.
Is it just me or does it seem real innovation appears lacking from all new 2014 flagships so far?? Perhaps we've reached a plateaux in the mobile technology world (might be a good thing! )
(Btw - Great overall M8 review by GSMarena - kudos) :)
Let's see what they have to say about the S5 and Z2... :))
AnonD-56862, 26 Mar 2014I can't understand why people here are just criticized about the camera?? is Higher megapixels... moreHigher megapixels also means the picture is bigger.
You cant zoom in very far with the M8 or else it will go blurry.
You cant crop pictures too much with the M8 because once again, the picture is blurry.
If you print a photo, it will be very small, and if you made the photo bigger it will be... you guessed it... blurry.
Maybe you should do some research on why higher megapixel is also important.
'The HTC One (M8) audio quality is by far the best we've seen a mobile device produce so far' Are u sure GSMA! don't u know that Nokia N91 still a king in the sound quality department. Yes even in 2014 or may be even further. Astonishing tonel clearity. I don't think any out there which Will compete with Nokia N91 acoustically sure

Ppl, that buy Android , not the same Unique Breed that buys iphones.
If HTC don't stop with this mediocre, heavy sealed cheap tin-can , they will die. No matter how hard the tech media iguys worship the "premium" bricks.
Great phone ordered mine. Had an M7 and an S3 before...I cant go back to plastic and tinny speakers. Though, the camera isnt amazing i really dont use it much.
Great phone with great Android optimization. HTC soon going to be the Apple of Android but they need to get ride of those bezels and increase the ULTRA PIXELS camera at least to 8 or 10 MP, other than that the Ultra pixels it's a great camera specially with colors replication and micro shoot. LG G flex still remain the most unique phone of 2014 but I still love HTC and I'll wait for the Max version cause I think it's going to be even better than HTC M8 if HTC wants to compete with Note and Z ultra .
"...a predecessor that failed to turn warm reception into good sales is adding more weight on its shoulders."
For the bad sales we have easy explanation - mediocre device. But for the warm reception, we still have not clear explanation.
Same is now with this handicap M8-One.
And not only the POS camera is the flop here.
