Default Why I`m happy with my M8

i keep reading other threads and posts about why people aren't happy with their M8..........i for one am extremely happy with mine in fact i have not been happier with a phone since i got an 02 xda exec (who remembers them)

i don't care if my screen may look a bit yellower than someone else's i am not one to compare things anyway i can see everything i want on the screen i have and can do everything from reading my books surfing the web play games and do work .......im happy

my battery lasts all day the way i use my phone ...i don't need 140hours of use and 28 days standby .......

i don't care if my grey is lighter or darker than anyone else's....im happy with the colour i have

my build quality seems fine ....nothing coming off or rattling .....im happy

I'm happy with sense don't need a gpe

i don't need a mega mega pixel camera i have a nikon d600 for that ....the camera is fine for what i would ever need it for u want more megapixels either buy a dslr or a nokia or sony

i have had a shed load of phones through the years and all of them bought because i wanted them regardless of looks style peer pressure or sales patter i make a decision and go buy it then use it as it was intended to be used ....but what i don't do is gripe gripe gripe .....far to many people nit pick and to a certain extent may well put others off buying that model i bet that for every one person on this forum that has a problem/gripe/nitpick there are 100`s that love it but you rarely hear from them

as a side note my phone was bought from cex in the uk along with a s5 for my son and he loves his as much as i love mine so it really is horses for courses.......of course mines better coz i can and have, unlocked boot loader, rooted, s-offed, changed cid/mid, sim unlocked and flashed ARHD and he can't !!!!

The camera is fine, I just wish that it was smoother, I'm coming from an iPhone so I'm a little spoiled in some areas and abused in others.

DONATE TO ME
its a perfect phone. i don't know what the hell there is to complain about really. if it got 100 MP camera someone would complain about something . else. for a smaller battery than my G2 it sure as hell last just as long...... oh its too long.... ohh the bezels are too big. blah blah for real? lmao. let me shake my phone to see if something rattles. people do all sorts of crazy things. trust me i had every phone known to man, and this phone is close to perfect. would i take a bigger battery or camera sure. does it hinder the phone at all. def not! and sense 6 is the best version yet


i am also a happy M8 user

That shouldn't be a huge issue. Just have tmobile configure your APN settings.

Yeah they did and they said sometimes with unlocked phones that doesn't work. I read that since kitkat been released att blocked unlocked phones being able to send and receive pictures. Everything else works besides this.

I'm on ATT and I can send and receive pictures just fine. I've always had my phone's unlocked so I don't know who posted that but that just isn't true.

Oh and I also love this phone. I'm usually a huge Samsung person but this has been the best phone I've had to date.... And I've had A Lot.

My M8 is AT&T but unlocked using on T-Mobile. This the only phone I had this problem with and other people having the same issue and they saying it happened when KitKit released and something about Att started blocking it for people who unlock there phones to use for other carriers.

And I agree with you on that. The S5 was the first Samsung phone I didn't like.
