Agree the device is longer than needed. Should've incorporated the speakers into the glass

Also, I wish they stuck with capacitive and made the HTC logo a home button. There is literally almost 2 inches from the bottom to the usable part of the screen..rediculous. And the power button sux. Placement and response..mine is inverted and is flat. I've stuck to using the swipe to lock feature from elemental kernel.

If you're rooted, there is a "triple tap to sleep" mod out there. Also, swiping the nav bar puts it to sleep.

Ive just upgraded from the OneX+ which was a solid phone except for heat and game lag. Ive only had the M8 for a week and it kicks the OneX+ ass in every department. It runs way cooler and the GPS is fantastic so far. It locks to about 25 satellites in a few seconds and I didnt notice any extra heat while running gps. I use this to track my runs about 4 times a week. Its taking me a bit to get used to the size, but for the extra speakers, which sound great, and extra screen size I think I'll get over it pretty fast. Battery life is also much better. The only weird thing is the placement of the headphone socket, although with the ir blaster up top then maybe it was necessary.

I love the Camera for close distance photos. I hate the Camera for long distance shots.

Ended up using Nova Launcher gestures (double tap AND swipe up) to sleep the phone using the 'Lock Screen' app. A lot people suggested Screen Off and Lock but it was larger than it needed to be and also required more permissions. Mind you, Lock Screen is made a dev that I've not heard of so for all I know, I'm porting data directly to the Chinese government.

I use widgetsoid to lock my screen and make a large invisible button which fills the bottom half of the homescreen.

I imagine it uses a lot of permissions as it does a lot of stuff.
