Default [Q] Verizon HTC one M8 vs stock HTC one m8

If i was to buy an HTC one M8 directly from HTC or a supplier that doesnt sell the Verizon version, will the clean/ no blottwear HTC phone work smoother / faster / have better battery life ?

buttom line , is having a Verizon / AT&T or whatever phone effects performance / battery life ? or is it hardly noticeable ?

technically, yes, you will save battery. realistically, it's negligible (for me at least) the amount of battery saved without the verizon apps.

Absolutely crazy. You can go into app manager and disable most of the Verizon boat on stock.

I disabled just about everything verizon or Amazon with no issues. There's a written list somewhere in the forums you can search for

Am thinking, yes, a phone that is not under any carrier will work do fine compare to those who are branded. Maybe because of those apps that's pre installed and will be running though your phone is off.

Keep in mind that if you are on Verizon, then you can only use the Verizon version of the phone.
