Would you be upset since you just purchased the M8?

Bla.. Sell this one buy the new one. Should companies stop making phone and adhere to some useless timelines like make a phone every year or 2 years etc. There is a new snapdragon 805 coming, new phones with QHD displays coming out soon. It will be foolish of HTC or any other company to wait till next year to release a phone with the new soc, screens etc.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 is going to be insane that's for sure. But if the rumors are true about the screen being 5.5 inch, I definitely don't want one. I'm drawing the line at a 5 inch screen, and I'm going to pray to every god I can think of that they don't decide to make the standard any bigger lol.

When is a phone not a phone.

When it becomes a phablet. I think their is a fine line to what you can hold sensibly like a phone. Even if you have huge mitts.

I have large hands and this is my limit, size wise for a daily driver. Being able to fit in my pocket etc.

But second devices are always good

People have been saying this since the original Galaxy Note came out. At the time, most industry commenters expected the Note to fail spectacularly, but it, and its successors, were a massive commercial success.

Whilst I have an M8, it isn't my primary phone - that's a Galaxy Note 3. So, my M8 is my secondary device!

I don't care if people say it's "too big" because for my purposes I don't find that to be the case at all - and I don't have overly large hands and find the Note 3 perfectly pocketable.

The point is that we all have different needs and requirements.

Regards,

Dave

Each to their own.... I just find it funny when I see people raise something the size of a small child to their ears

I'd hazard a guess then that you're significantly younger than me!

My first hand portable phone was a Nokia Orange: http://www.mobilephonehistory.co.uk/...nokia_2140.php

It was over double the size (volumetrically) than my Note 3, and, obviously, a far less capable device with a lot lower battery life. It was also one of the first GSM (digital) devices, and as such much smaller than most of the analogue phones you could get back then.

My point is that it didn't really seem silly or unusual to have such a large device back then.

Given how much more capable modern phones are, I don't have a problem with the size, because, for me, the benefits of the large screen massively outweigh any disadvantages (of which there are surprisingly few). I'd happily add a few mm and grams to the Note 3 (and my M8 for that matter) to get an even bigger battery, but I digress!

Regards,

Dave
