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.

guessing it would be crazy of me to sell my verizon HTC one m8 and get a fresh clean out of blottwear handset ?

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

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.
