Here was my post over there cause I donated too... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=60 I have Verizon and T-Mobile so I grabbed the M8 on Verizon and the S5 on T-mobile. Best of both worlds, although the M8 is waaaay snappier in pretty much every task. I wish Samsung would slim this damn TouchWiz down. Look at your available ram and tell me that this baby don't NEED 3gb of ram like the Note 3. WoW! Anyways, the more devs we all have the better if you think about it. Look how many roms and mods get ported over from different carrier variants. Yes, I am a crack flasher for sure. Glad to see you donate too though.
I'm not seeing any performance difference M8/GS5 side by side both are sure performers except for M8 Radio radio , GS5 wins radio battle , battery life & water resistance is a +.
Yeah the ram thing hmm , I feel its being totally over hyped. Yes more is better but in reality not needed.
For those going huh heres a great read on ram - http://www.androidcentral.com/ram-wh...-shouldnt-care.
Yes yes more developers the better! This carrier lockdown crap needs to end , Only way that's going to happen is pressure manufactures go after them in social media blitz , That's what made HTC change their tune with Sprint EVO 3D.
