This a comparison of the M7 vs the M8 hardware, for anyone considering upgrading from the old One, to the "All-New One"

Hardware Specs:

CPU:			Snapdragon 600 @ 1.7 GHz	Snapdragon 801 @ 2.3 GHz

Memory:			2 GB LPDDR2			2 GB LPDDR3 
Dimensions:		5.41"H x 2.69"W x 0.37"D	5.76"H x 2.78"W x 0.37"D
			(137.4mm x 68.2mm x 9.3mm)	(146.3mm x 70.6mm x 9.4mm)
Weight:			5.0 oz (0.31 lbs)		5.4 oz (0.34 lbs)
Display:		4.7" SLCD-3 489 ppi		5.0" SLCD-3 441 ppi
			Gorilla Glass 2			Gorilla Glass 3
SIM Type:		Micro SIM			Nano SIM
Internal Storage:	32 GB				32 GB

Battery:		2300 mah			2600 mah
Rear Camera:		4 MP, F2.0			4 MP, F2.0 (updated sensor) / 2 MP Depth Sensor
Front Camera:		2.1 MP				5.0 MP
Capacitive Buttons:	Back, Home			None
Personal Observations:
Display's color accuracy is better on the M8.
No faint vertical lines visible in landscape view on the M8.
Speakers are louder and clearer on the M8.
Orange notification LED appears to be dimmer than on the M7, but the green LED is brighter.

Before I purchased the M8, I wasn't sure I wanted to spend the cash for the upgrade. But I'm glad I did it. I really feel HTC has made good improvements on an already great phone.

Have you done the same? What are your thoughts?
