There seems to be some controversy on the lack or presence of an FM radio. The review says there is no FM radio. The specs say there is (?). Some videos online also show an FM radio app in the drawer. It may turn out that the US version of the phone has no FM Radio, while the European one has it. GSMArena, please verify and provide additional information.
I'm so tired of hearing the MegaPixel arguement, it's such BS. Who it using a camera phone to take photos to zoooooooom in on???? Who? Professionals? I swear the only people who do this are people who review them.
Yes I have the HTC One and I think the camera is amazing. Why? Because it take pictures quickly, they looks spot on for colour with great dynamic range and low light shots are amazing. I've had and used numerous phone, GF has the Z1 right now and I much prefer the One's picture quality; I'm sure if you zoooooom in to looks at people individual hairs you'll get more detail on the Z1 but who's doing that...seriously!
where is the display test? the REAL display test, the numbers, brightness and sunlight legibility?
Nice review as usual, but where is the speaker test ? Especially for this phone with dual front speakers...
HTC M8 has everything you need. M8 is the best phone of the year. M8 here i come
For those complaining on the camera for the M8, I have a question.... have you ever bothered using it?
And most of the complaints I have read in reviews can easily be fixed by reducing the exposure!
Simply, Nokia has set the benchmark in smartphone photography and other manufacturers yet to reach the level. I guess none of these companies reached the level of old Nokia N8!!!! build quality, I think HTC is close to Nokia but not better than Nokia.
HTC awesome especially the color grey (y)
Z2 is also awesome
But I'll go for m8
Honestly, I liked the original HTC one but i sold it because of its camera. I never took my phone out to take pictures because of its resolution.
I was really hoping that HTC would have done something different this time around but I guess not. Battery life is another concern for me since I'm using a note 3 now.
I guess I will wait for note 4 or maybe even a LG G3 before I make my move since I buy unlocked phones straight out.
S5 and the all new HTC one are both the biggest disappointments of the year. Z2 has been the only good phone of 2014 so far..
Too bad that camera sucks again, at the moment i see no valid reason to replace my m7 with m8. I was really hoping that those rumors regarding 16mp camera were true as i planned to replace all my companies management phones whit M8s.
ssndip, 25 Mar 2014I haven't used S4 or G2, but my brother in law has xperia Z1 13 MP CAM and believe me my HTC O... moreBut Z1 has 20.7 MP cam not 13 n Z1 produces much better shots than HTC One (M7) may be ur brother in law has Xperia Z
i have an HTC one. I switched from only using iPhone for the past several years and first bought a galaxy S4 twice! I say twice because the first S4 had a mic problem out of box, the second one had a speaker issue out of box an both were NEW!! ditched samsung ( which I will never buy again, overblown marketing hype) and bought the HTC one. I was concerned about the camera but after using it (and realizing that i don;t need to see every pore on a persons face with clarity ) i have never missed my iPhone!! that is a huge achievement for HTC. They are an awesome product, next next build to apple, and support the product with timely updates. My experience with the other android phones are very poor and would wholly support HTC. Too bad the carriers don't push them as much as they could, if people used it they would see how much better the phone is over the competitors in the market. to each his own....
Great design but wasted on the 4mp camera. Disappointed with HTC's decision to remain 4mp camera.
Muthu, 25 Mar 2014Why would you want to go from a device (note 2) with excellent camera to lousy camera (HTC M8)... moremy bad, note 3 won't support 4G in India (if you are in India). If 4G is important for you, I am not sure if there are alternatives in android flagship phones in India. Grand 2 - I think it supports 4G. However it is not an upgrade over note 2. Iphone 5s is the only flagship available in India with 4G support, i.e. if you don't mind IOS and limitations with that.
Mohammad Travadi, 25 Mar 2014hello frnds... heartly a samsung fan, using note2 now. can u guys pl suggest does it make s... moreWhy would you want to go from a device (note 2) with excellent camera to lousy camera (HTC M8)? In india, it would cost at least 45K to 50K INR. Better wait for couple of months, note 3 price would go down a bit, that would be a better upgrade than M8 unless you are fed up with Samsung. In that case, you might consider Sony Z1 (again wait for 2-3 months, price would go down further) or Sony Z2 (only if you want the latest and best). I don't think additional cost for Z2 over Z1 would be worth it (at least for initial 2 months once the device is launched).
