Until Samsung change things up I have no desire to go for the S series . . . The Note 4 is suppose to be changing design but again it will just copy the S5 features wise . . .
S5 didn't even interest me at all . .I was going for M8 or Z2 to be honest . . Not at all sad that I chose the M8!
I'd keep hold !!

Saw the bosses S5 earlier today. Had to try really hard to mock him for not getting the M8.

In terms of build quality and sheer sexy gadget appeal, the M8 blows the S5 clean out of the water.

This is my first workday with the M8. Holy sh!t AMAZING battery life. Right now unplugged off charger for 12h 48m and battery is at 57%. And I used the phone a good amount today too, all on 4G today, no Wi-Fi. Wow that's really good.

How can I see the On Screen time ? I am guessing has to be at least 3h screen on time today for me, and still have 50% battery left to go

The M8 is more feature-rich. I say stay with what you got. More cases will come,'s brand new phone for crying out loud.

I'm closing this, just like other similar threads, as we don't allow comparison threads.
We don't allow these threads as it can very easily lead to heated debates/arguments about which phone is the "best". It's also an open opportunity for fanboy trolls to come along and ruin such threads.
Also, asking in the M8 forum will undoubtedly bring bias results as most people in this section either have the M8 or are getting the M8.

If you wish to ask such a question, please use the existing Device Suggestion Thread!
