My wife as well got the s5 only had it for 8 hours then returned for the m8. Which that's what I told her to get in the first place. M8= money's worth and quality. S5=trying to hard. Samsung has lost me as a customer. I have had the note 2 and I liked it but didn't like TouchWiz. I was waiting for an SD card on the htc and got it.
I also traded my note 3 for the M8 about 4 days ago. So far I'm really enjoying this phone.
The battery life is surprisingly good! Better than my Note 3 actually. The speakers are fantastic and so is the build quality. It also feels snappier than the Note 3.
The only thing that really bugs me is that damn bottom bezel with the HTC logo. If it had actual buttons on it like the first one it would be one thing. But it's such a waist. But that's really just a minor gripe. Overall this phone is fantastic!
The only thing I don't like about the phone is the ugly pea green accent color used in the volume controls and widgets etc. I much preferred the ICS blue used on the M7. The camera is decent but they really should have put a 8mp shooter in it. Not complaining since it's adequate for all my mobile picture needs but my girlfriend's G2 does take better pics than my M8. Besides that the phone is awesome!!
