Default The Best Phone of the Year...killed by a poor camera

I was really excited to see the spec for the M8.

The spec turned out pretty decent, but the camera.....unbelievable. How can a smart phone be shipped with a poor camera....a flagship smartphone that is.

The Galaxy S5 and the Z2 among others will absolutely kill this phone in sales.
The build of the M8 is beautiful though.....such a huge mistake with this poor choice of camera for the 2nd year running,

I hope so.

Please elaborate.


Over the past 4 years or so, I have came to very heavily rely on my smartphone camera, i think almost everyone has. Yeah sure I have a great Compact digital camera and also a great DSLR .

But i always have my smartphone with me. The other cameras only get an outing about twice a year!

The camera in m8 does not have optical image stabilization like the m7.


No OIS equals blurry pics unless you walk around with a tripod.

For the moment I am happy with my m7.

OP, do you have the phone? Can you provide examples of this poor camera? If so, we'll gladly reopen the thread. Otherwise, conjecture based upon what you've read about the phone isn't really helpful.
