Default [Q] Has anyone switched to HTC One M8?

Hey everyone,
I'm thinking of switching to the new One m8, has anyone done that? I saw a thread speaking of the old One, I'm curious about the new one. At my local Best Buy they only have the amber version and it can't even be turned on...
I would switch mainly for the materials it is built with but also I would like to try a different skin and the extra things this brings with it.
So... Has anyone passed to the new One?

Im about too, and yeah I would like to have a different feel on a phone, based on reviews its a good phone but also has some flaws like the camera, etc. And it also comes in a hefty price. But, its a good phone thats why I'll jump to it, anyways I'm still keeping my N5 so no loses for me. If I get bored with the M8 then I'll sell it. Lol!

It startes getting really good toward the end...

But also, one reccomendation is to look at the HTC M8 Forums, If you check here, it will be (Mostly) people who may have tried it, but ended up not keeping it

Over there, youll get people who actually have it, and may have came from the N5

Personally, I had played with my friends, and I think its really cool, I love it, but I'd miss the "clean feel" of the N5

I suggest going to ATT store to play with a real one, I was quite impressed. The only thing that bothered me was like the bottom speaker, htc logo, and then the softkeys. No real reason for the htc logo in that big of an area. If I could afford it I would buy it in all honesty.

From what I've read the bezel is big because the front facing speakers are utilizing that space.

Either way, it's a nice looking phone but I'll stick with my Nexus 5 until the next Nexus comes out.

Also behind the HTC logo is the antenna, I think I read that some where.

I too read that they had to keep the black bar with the logo for antennas and circuits... Too bad, it would have been better without but still, comparing it to the nexus 5, it's probably just half an inch taller.
Anyway, I went on and bought it, it should arrive tomorrow!

After the Nexus 4 and 5 price I can't see my self spending 500 bucks or more on a phone. Also I hate leaving my phones naked and it kinda kills the purpose of buying such a nice build phone.

Default nope


To me its not worth the price when I already have a nexus 5
Practically the same processor ram screen size plus HTC bloat
And the camera is worse IMHO
I'm expected to pay a $300 premium for front facing speakers and metal casing that I would cover up with a case anyway. No thanks
