I'll buy a M8 on October, but on the other hand I play Ingress a lot which means harsh conditions. I'll use the phone for at least 2 years, so I cant choose.
I saw some rumors about M9 being water and dust resistant so this is why I'm asking you guys...
I'd wait if I were you, even it's only rumors and you don't know if the M9 will really be water/dust-proof a lot can happen until it's released, you could even fall in love with another new awesome phone you didn't consider at the time, and even if that's not the case the M8 would cost a lot less than now so you'd not have wait for nothing.
