It's now been about 3 weeks since I acquired a brand new One m8. I must admit that I am not impressed one bit. I feel like I'm the only one. Why is that, because I can go down a pretty long list and only find a few things where the m8 comes out ahead, and I don't mean some specs on paper. I'm talking about differences that you can see which would justify paying $650 versus just getting a cheaper brand new s3. If I had the choice, I'd never have upgraded at all.
I could of gone through things that made the S3 inadequate when it first came out, and I almost loved it when it first came out, but it's all subjective.
Personally the S4 was a mile behind the M7 especially in speed and stability and I doubt the S5 is any less laggy.
Have to say Samsung got the S2 just right at just the right time then lost me at the S3 onwards.
