I am not a fan of Htc but then again this phone is great in looks, build and awesome speakers but the only thing that I dislike about is the sense ui as I am a fan of stock android and would appreciate if they would have launched the Google play edition version in India. But yes you can always root it and can flash the play edition rom and I am looking forward to swap my Nexus 5 and buy this.

And I agree. While some cameras are obviously better, don't believe the hate about the M8 camera. It's great for what it does. Plus those speakers rule right now.
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2014No, htc m8 camera is much better than s5.Not a chance. Have your preference, but be factual and objective.
My brother decided on a HTC M8, feels good in hand (if a teeny bit long), not heavy at all. There is no bloatware on the phone. As far as camera goes, if you hold it still you will get a good shot like any camera.

I was initially very confused about buying which phone among the s5, z2 n m8. All 3 have some very good specs n each offers something unique with its own draw back.
S5 has plastic n touchwiz which I'm no longer a fan of.
I liked the z2, but then I've come across reviews which said that the z2 shoots 20mp only in manual mode. In any other mode, it clicks 8mp n 4k recording is useless unless you have 4k screens to playback your videos. Also z2 doesn't handle 4k recording well. So, the cam part here is a big let down. It's almost cheating.
Though the 4mp ultra pixel on m8 is not awe inspiring, I still feel its enough unless you're constantly zooming in. Plus, it feels really nice in your hand.
Samsung is rumored to be getting out a new premium phone. If you still haven't bought a new phone n really care about the MPs, it would be wise to wait for this. Though I pity them who've got their s5 already.
If this phone does not succeed in selling good enough quantity then we can safely assume most comments on here are either rival brand trolls or just talking nonsense. All year round we have people complaining about Galaxy range being plastic etc, here it is guys, premium, all metal, HTC. Let's see how many of these commenters hide now.
patels...., 13 Apr 2014Only 4 mp camara..... Sad. !!!It's = to16 mega pixel. As good as 4*4 . The cam is awesome.
Just replaced my HTC desire HD with the HTC one m8 after 3 yes faultless usage and I have to say the quality is outstanding still on the fence about the camera but there again not a big camera phone user .I could have upgraded last year to the previous HTC one but was put of by the lack of memory card slot this time though they got it right

there are lots of different reviews and user opinions on the internet
all of them shows that the galaxy s5 destroys htc one m8 in camera and video capabilities
even the real htc one owners don't like the camera
so wtf r u talking about ha?

Samsung upping the mp doesn't mean anything. It's a sales gimmick. Note:unless you were able to hold the galaxy s5 completely still, you will always end up with a blurry photo. And, no one ever takes their pictures and blows them up to take advantage of a higher megapixel. Most people view the photos on a computer/ laptop or just their phones. So much wasted talk from this reviewer about the camera. If you have the S5 and HTC side by side, the M8 is much snappier! Numbers on paper are just that...NUMBERS! Samsung wins just because they have been advertising heavily for a bit longer. Go to the store and do the side by side comparison people!
