For those of you that have come from the original One, are you happy with the M8? Is it a worthy upgrade? I know that there are no roms out yet but I'm wondering to use my upgrade yet or wait?

Had the OG One, switched to the Nexus 5 and now have the M8. I am extremely happy with the M8 and will probably end up keeping this longer than either of those.

This phone is beautiful, smoking fast, the screen is large and vivid; it's the best I've seen. I say go for it. [emoji106]

I agree with you 100 %. If your area is blessed with spark, even more so.

This is exactly the quandary I find myself in. Saw the m8 at Verizon and messed with it. Must say i was underwhelmed. Trying to decide now between N5 and M7, mostly.

Spark is wicked fast, but I don't know if my market will get it (just north of Seattle).

Well I love them both... My only complaint is lack of vlte. I was looking forward to canceling my mifi... I got it bc my area didn't have lte and I had become spoiled by phones that allow me to surf and talk on Sprint... Sigh

Keeping my SIM unlocked M7 on T-Mobile because I get great LTE everywhere around Brea, Yorba Linda, Anaheim at $70 unlimited everything.

Using an upgrade for the M8 (Best Buy has Gold and Gunmetal Black for Sprint at $199) in about a week. The same area has great Spark coverage. My M7 is customized exactly how I want it with all of the possible extras but the M7 feels like an American muscle car (powerful sturdy with straight lines) and the M8 is like a Ferrari with blazing speed and great curves. I was using the store salesman model and I got a pop up to swipe up with 5 fingers I believe and I was instantly connected with 7 TV's across the store. I just hope Spark is somewhere near these pics I have seen ...the map says I am in the center of a big area of coverage
