Default [Q] How do you like this phone?

My wife's MyTouch 4G Slide has a dead microphone and is no longer available from T-mobile. This is one of the two approved replacement/upgrades from the phone insurance/warranty company. What do you like? What do you hate? What kind of problems do you have? The choice is between this and a samsung relay. Just looking for all the details before I pick a junk phone since I know nothing about either of these devices.
Phone: HTC One M8
ROM: Stock
Radio: stock
Kernel: Stock
Recovery: stock

Tablet : Nexus 7 (2012)
ROM: Stock (at the moment)

~~~RETIRED~~~
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Jumped
Samsung GS2 T989 - Retired
T-Mobile G2 - Died
Mytouch 3g Slide - Returned Junk
Mytouch 3g - Died

Although I love this phone, because of the camera and durability, I would recommend the Relay because of the better GPU and possibility of there being more stable custom roms for it available on the forums.

Custom roms are no concern. Neither is the gpu I don't think due to the fact that she uses her phone for the most basic functions. She loves her physical keyboard, but I know from 3 years of ownership that Samsung phones can be very frustrating. She's using my retired gs2 right now to see if she can deal with Samsung TouchWiz.

Thanks for all your input everybody. She has been using my old Samsung gs2 for a day now as a spare phone and proclaimed today via text that he hates it and also Samsung as a result. I went with the HTC since that's what she is used to in a smartphone ui.
