godliferis, 21 Aug 2014Htc good phone but windows os shit ;) if it was ,they wouldn't have invested into it
AnonD-204681, 21 Aug 2014Because Microsoft are paying them that's why. Why do you think they would make one when they k... morethat's one way of looking at it, another way to look at it is WP ecosystem gaining popularity and HTC could be trying to test to see how sales go, it's all in business
This is enticing but is the OS support in HTC on par with Nokia? I was about to jump to Lumia 930 but I saw this and now I'm confused lol

microsoft is paying a few billions a year for this
Htc good phone but windows os shit ;)
Honestly, would go for this anytime over whatever Nokia (or whatever they are calling it these days) is pushing out.
the problem with this os is when you look at it its ugly, i mean those tiles, but when you own it and arrange those to your own preference it just look gorgeous.
berry, 20 Aug 2014Does this M8 for windows have double tap to unlock device? :/Yes it does its in Motion Sensor under settings.
AnonD-296525, 20 Aug 2014Windows phone browser is rather slow and not as flexible like its android version.Do u use a windows Phone?
Looks better then Nokia? No way! in my opinion, but it's a matter of taste, I'll take the Nokias design over HTC any day
Yeah, exactly the same phone with thick bezels + on screen keys.
The video doesn't show much, check out these videos here about the device
On screen keys look lame. Bad looking.. They shouldve stuck with the soft keys.
I have to say I can see this device doing particularly well in the enterprise not only in the consumer market. A little more conservative in colour (similar to the Lumia 925 style), some that businesses tend to go for.
Then providing what customers have asked for, a great screen 1080p and SD card.
Another great thing was the announcement and then availability virtually straight away compared to other WP releases. Well done HTC, I'm looking forward to this one arriving in Australia.
With Samsung's, LG, possibly Sony, and other devices marked as coming, it makes for an interesting time for Windows Phone. MS are really getting the OS right too with the latest updates - just nicely done.
Windows phone browser is rather slow and not as flexible like its android version.
That's a tall phone for a 5" screen, those 3 buttons embedded in the screen make windows look ugly, and has a shitty camera (proved with the htc one). Nooooope!
I just got 8.1 on my 1020 and the os is great... fluid and simple no messing about.
berry, 20 Aug 2014Does this M8 for windows have double tap to unlock device? :/all windows phone with 8.1 have this function
Kopi-O-Siew-Dai, 20 Aug 2014Can't agree more. There is no more distinctiveness if it is a HTC phone or Nokia because every... moreYes, than WP OS design is a monstrosity, front tiles, different sized text and plain colors....annnnd that is it. no wonder it doesnt need too much resources...20th century bits are calling
