Come on htc

I just read that other phones makers are both taking the same approach as HTC using dual cameras. HTC never should have rid their ONE series phones of the dual camera ! The ultra pixel dual camera was a great idea it just needed improving , and it should have been patented to prevent other phone companies from copying them, giving HTC an edge over other phone makers. HTC has obviously had great ideas that other phone makers have adopted the ideas such as, the great aluminum design of the phone, front facing speakers, instant articles similar to HTC's blink feed, 5mp front camera, and front facing speakers. HTC needs to improve on the great ideas found on this phone, everything screams innovation. If you go to developer options and check force gpu rendering, force 4x's msaa, and limit background processes to 2, the phone will be extremely fluid and the graphics are amazing !!


Great, fun phone

I started out with an HTC for my first smartphone years ago. I tested out the feel of this device once my husband got one, since it appeared so large and heavy. It was a pleasant surprise to find that it wasn't at all. It's the perfect size and has so many unique features only HTC can create. I love the BlinkFeed, Themes, and how spaced apart the icons are in the app drawer. I've dropped it here and there and it's still in perfect condition. I like to buy covers for mine which also helps when I'm clumsy. The battery ranges from 13-14 hours or more depending on my daily usage. Overall, I'm hooked on HTC's quality and don't think I'll ever switch to another brand. Very happy with this device! Side note: I did purchase the Windows version first but the software was a little buggy after about six months and I missed the app variety that Playstore offers.

not for left handers

i am left handed an when i got my m8 i noticed i could not hear good when someone called me but if i changed to the right hand it was clear. i thought i was having ear problems or the phone was bad . got another new m8 same thing. then i found out the speaker is in the far left side of the phone. so for me to hear good i have to almost put the phone in front of my face. htc i would like for you to know there are a lot of left handed people too. this is not what i would consider very thoughtful of your design team. i love htc so i guess i will learn to use it right handed.


Remarkably Resilient!

Other reviewers have described the features beautifully and, really, I can't top it. The HTC one has a gorgeous screen, is easy to use, has excellent sound, and is dependable with great battery life. Where it shines, for me, is how incredibly durable it is! It'd been dropped, knocked, kicked and kept going... I literally ran it over in my car (not a glancing blow, mind you, it was squished under my tire on a gravel parking lot) and IT. STILL. WORKED. Now, it bent a little and finally got a tiny crack in the screen - but it had been run over by a car! The fact that's ALL that happened was amazing. I dropped my last phone a few inches off my couch and the screen looked like a spiderweb and the microphone stopped working. The HTC One took it like a champ!

Best of the best

I have been a Windows man since the early nineties. A year and a half ago I bought a Lumina 521 and fell in love with Windows phone. I received the HTC One M8 for Father's day. It is a fantastic hardware platform for the Windows phone OS. The only thing the M8 is missing is a professional camera. It would make this phone a must have for Windows users.

Best smart phone ever

From htc one x I had, and I'm using m8 now nothing bad recon, the phone is phenomenal, good battery life, camera, process speed, I hope there will be a built-in sim to the next generation and I'm waiting for m10.

Rugged phone

The day after i got the phone i lost it in snow. A friend found it a week later not only did it still work it still had battery left. Two days ago i dropped it out of my pocket ... i was up a wind turbine 300 ft up . the phone had a little scuff on corner otherwise still in like new condition. i hope you guys keep building them like this

HTC M8_Pathetic Phone

I Have been using M8 for 5 months now and let me tell its a pathetic phone not performance wise but built wise. During the first 3 months, I had kept my phone in the translucent case which comes along with the phone but everytime I used to remove it, I saw some spots on the back of it which I realised was due to the dust which was able to penetrate. The metal case heats up so badly that sometimes it is to difficult to even hold it. Speakers get dirty so easily.HTC logo getting peeled off. All this has happened in just the first 4 months. I don't know what all will come off by 1 year.


Amazing Phone!!!

I love this phone! Especially the camera and the stereo BoomSound speakers. I'm glad that I switched my previous phone for this one.
