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.
I love this phone! Especially the camera and the stereo BoomSound speakers. I'm glad that I switched my previous phone for this one.
Worst phone I've ever had
The phone was fine until a couple of months later I had to use my insurance through Verizon to get a new one because the battery would not hold a charge, nor would it charge above 54%. I received a new one and that one was fine as well, until the same thing happened again to my second phone I had received. Sometime my keyboard would seem as though it had a mind of its own. It would also randomly shut down some apps that I was using at that moment, and freeze as well. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone looking for a new phone. If 0 was an option for the "battery life" feature, that would've been my choice.
Calendar has a default setting of a light blue background with white (?) type letters to show an appointment in the day mode which is UNREADABLE. And while there seems to be a way to change "themes" there is NO way to change the background color in the day mode. I have to select the appointment to be able to see readable text. Now that I've had the phone for awhile, I lament the lack of a replaceable battery, as my current battery requires constant monitoring and recharging during the day..... This is my second HTC phone (HTC evo 4 G previously), and it will be my last.
After a mandatory upgrade, all of my notes were erased... It forced forced me to use "Everynote" which you have to install from play, and it didn't transfer my old notes. They're all gone, such BS! Also, the camera sucks in dark settings, everything is purple.
Nice but disappointing
Nice phone but I felt it was a step back from the HTC One S I had.
I use Facebook a lot and I like to save pictures from my page on Facebook to my phone. You can't do that with this HTC One M8.
I believe the updates for the HTC have updated some of the functions of the camera on this phone. For example, initially you couldn't zoom in to take a picture of something far away.
I find the screen saver pictures are boring and not so dynamic as what was available on the HTC One S.
I expected to get an upgraded phone from the HTC One S I was using when I bought the HTC One M8. The longer I have had this phone, the more I am disappointed with it. I am seriously considering getting a Samsung Galaxy S6 or whatever the current new Samsung is when my phone plan runs out in about a year.
Lollipop has ruined this device! I agree with the other reviews. Battery life shorter, text messages lag, apps crash etc. It's HORRIBLE!
HTC One M8 Windows Phone
Love my Windows version M8, its a work phone. I insisted to my boss to replace the Iphone they gave me with this phone. So glad I did, it runs circles around the Iphones everyone else in the office carries. My one beef is with HTC, my dog chewed up the remote to my tv and I was using the HTC TV remote app to control it. For some reason for the life of me I can not figure out HTC decided to kill this app and it just disappeared off my phone. I have no other alternative in the Windows store. HTC bring back the TV remote app that uses the IR transmitter in the on off button, my kids are grow up and gone and I have been unable to train my dog to work the buttons on the TV.
