Hi, traded my trusty ol Nexus 5 for the be spoken M8 Eye. I have been a droid loyalist since the gingerbread days, have used HTC legend, desire , evo3d, galaxy notes, s4, Xperia ultra , nexus..but I swear by God this the best buy yet.

The HTC phones are sure built like strong German cars, and comparing to new iPhone 6, yes, m8 just tops it on handling and finish. The i6 feels like the older HTC one x.

Sound clarity is beautiful from the stereo speakers, SQ is there but it could have done with more loudness.

Out of box it came preloaded with KK 4.4.4 and the SenseUI is buttery smooth topped with good battery life.

Camera quality is all good, very snappy in locking focus unlike nexus5. My camera usage is very basic so not commenting much.

Happy to be part of XDA..thanks!!

The Eye is great with the 13MP camera, I just understand why HTC omitted NFC and the Infrared port on it.

Is the camera just more MP, or is it actually upgraded hardware wise?

Just curious. 😁

Is it the faster AC 801 like the Asian M8 or still the AB 801?

Sorry, I meant is it different camera hardware. Or just more MP.

If it's the same hardware... Wouldn't the only improvement be you can blow the pic up a bit more.?

Do you even read the specs? both cameras, front and back are having 13mp and few differences between both...

I read it... Lol But doesn't say, new camera hardware... Way better than the old m8. 😁

I'm just curious, cause they can make it a thousand mega pixels... But still need better hardware for the pics to actually be "better". Know what I mean.

Able to print or view a bigger pic, doesn't make it a better pic.

I still use an 8 MP Kodak camera, cause the pictures are awesome. And I don't need to blow them up. 😊

Couldn't agree more about no need to blow up photos, and I have no interest in making posters with my camera photos. I think the pics the original m8 takes are great, but they needed to make the eye version to appease all those who felt more megapixels equals better. There are also those who swear their pics are washed out on the original, but that hasn't been my experience.
