The phone of the year. Dual boot will make this almost perfect.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2014GSMArena, you should mention in every Windows Phone review that the phone dialler lacks cursor... moreYes you are right but this is 10 to 15 characters and the back button will delete the number so you are right
The Android version of this phone id better due to there being more Apps that wotk
Microsoft is almost negligent in allowing some apps into the store, which don't work never worked (so how did they get past vetting?)
With a lot of apps working working on Android and not on Windows pinning the bookmark to the home page ( as you can on Android which displays the icon and IS the App) is required
Bookmarks are listed in Alpha order requires multiple steps to load, all this after opening the internet.
I am thinking to change for windows phone and buy this m8 run windows 8.1 I read all this review so htc m8 will be my next phone next week :D
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2014Still can't get past the ugliness of windows tiles (imho)If it was on us IOS so I think we could read ur extreame happiness but unfortunitly u will not get it. Keep with icons from the nokia 1100 stone age :).
Hi, I am a window phone user and before that windows mobile user ( even before IOS and Android :)) I had iphone and android mobile but I really use the wp most. I have more than 360 apps installed about 82 games ( I really do not use 20% of them). The app store is fulled with apps that u can use so donot bother with number in the market, use those u need. The Lumia photography and office pack of microsoft with here drive are the most important reason to choose WP, auto synch with onedrive and my PC is very precious, the people hup is another powerfull reason. City lens is just another candy. So hounestly I do not care about every thing else. Offcourse I hope I have 10 million apps but how maney of them I will use? only those I need. Only one shortage which is really disappointing me is that MS supports Skype on other platforms better than WP which is a mystery for me. But if I compare this to shortages on other plat forms I will choose WP again.
I have this phone, and I tell you it's amazing. But all my friends, who are Android users, make fun of me by saying there are no apps in Windows. How do I make them shut? :(
AnonD-82281, 21 Oct 2014According to this review, last page, it doesn't. I know maps are available on all devices, I w... moreSeems like there are Google Maps for Windows Phone though. Good enough for me - actually was the main thing keeping me on the Android platform.
Well, that and Swype-type keyboards.
my favorite win phone for 2014..very amazing.
If only his phone have atleast 8-13 ultrapixel that would be great. Its seems htc cant upgrade their ultrapixel thing from m7., no one likes the ultrapix. It shouldve been 13mp or 16mp instead of ultra in the first place. Now if someone wants this phone with 13mp they would have to buy m8 eye.still it would be great if the offers 16mp with ois. Not a good idea for those who has the m8 with ultrapix. I like the ui design and all that. Just saying
Excellent review and amazing phone
I finally thought we found it.. HD2 replacement from 2010.
Alas no or not yet. GSMarena I want front page news when this device has dual boot for both OS.
This, or the LG G3?

Anonymous, 20 Oct 2014All WP8.1 devices have Here Drive+ for free for quite some time now.According to this review, last page, it doesn't. I know maps are available on all devices, I wondered about voice navigation.
GSMArena, you should mention in every Windows Phone review that the phone dialler lacks cursor.
You can't delete a wrong number or add a prefix at the start of a string of numbers.
This is a major failure from Microsoft's part, and they are not fixing it any time soon.
One if the best looking phones on the market these days. Good battery backup as well. Hope this phone will be available world wide any time soon.
As the Nokia Lumia 930 is in direct competition with the HTC, why miss this off the Performance tests (save the Basemark OS II test)? It's frustrating that Nokia is hardly ever included in these tests.
Why don't you review Lumia830?Also test it's battery.
