I would imagine that was a big point that was brought up when discussing the feature.

Not trying to be rude, just realistic. Carriers want you to use data.


Rich, TheMavic,

We are mainly talking about FM Transmitter (tx) not FM Receiver. (rx)

But yes the FM Radio is equally important especially with both RDS2.0 and Text+2 right around the corner

EDIT: By the way RDS2 Will be backwards compatible with RDS1 and will also include 2 additional sub carrier EMA stations which will be completely analog and easier for devices to "hear" in a emergency. I thought this might be important to point out.

Going for it. M8 all the way.
I wish they'd been a little more bold with the design tweaks but looked at the S5, thought, 'meh', read this and made a choice.

M8 it is.

Oh. Transmitter. That must have been where the confusion started. My apologies.

Just curious, what type of things can you do with an FM transmitter?
Verizon HTC One (M8)
Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Verizon HTC One
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4
AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3

And many more...

No worries. Like i said ive made that mistake myself. I mainly would use it to output music to my car audio.
At the gym or for speakerphone in the car to override a playlist.
But there are other uses as well.

Just wanted to point out yet again just so there is no confusion. My comments are about FM Transmitter not FM Radio.

Who will not love this phone?

The HTC One M8's sumptuous aluminum body makes a beautiful background for this top-flight smartphone's brilliant 5-inch display. It runs on a powerful quad-core processor and Android KitKat, the stereo speakers deliver excellent sound, and the depth-sensing camera brings a ton of useful features. Elegant style, raw power, and sophisticated features make the HTC One M8 an excellent smartphone choice for anyone but the most exacting photographer.

Design-wise, this certainly sets the bar high for any subsequent smartphone, let alone an HTC One follow up. I can confirm though the new HTC One M8 is one heck of a handsome device, the sexiest smartphone I've seen all year in fact (including the Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2). While HTC's latest creation is more conservatively-styled than the previous One, its has a look that's just as premium.
