Default Will you be upgrading from the HTC One M7?

Will you/did you upgrade from the M7 to the M8? If you're sticking with the M7 why?

I'm not sure? I'm interested to hear other's opinions.

I upgraded from the M7, you can't go wrong either way. The M7 was the best smart phone I've ever had but I like to have the latest things so I took the plunge for the M8. The two very small gripes with my M7 were the purple tint issue and the battery life. After 8+ months of ownership I was only just getting a day on battery if that on light/moderate usage. The M8s battery life is 40% better than the M7 so that is a huge increase. The purple tint issue has also been fixed. It's not a huge upgrade and if I were tight on money I could EASILY of kept the M7 till 2015. Your choice. This might get locked as it's a phone comparison thread but hey ho.
Previous Smartphones: HTC Wildfire, HTC Desire S, HTC One S (S4 Black). HTC 8X. Nexus 4, HTC One S (S4 Grey) HTC One X+, HTC One M7 (Silver/White)
Current Phone: HTC One M8 (Gunmetal Grey)

Thanks for your thoughts.. I agree about the battery. 12 months on I can certainly see the decay.

I hope this doesn't get locked as it is useful to those like me who have the previous model and are debating to upgrading to the next generation.

I understand comparison threads being closed, but this is discussing the same manufacturer and practically the same model, just the upgraded version. Normally flame wars happen between other OEMs like Samsung and HTC.

I imagine this thread would be useful to others who are undecided on wether to splash out of commit for another 2 years on a device that may in the real world seem just the same as the M7

Hope we can keep this discussion going!

Same as me. I had a play with one at the O2 store today. Gotta say... its the finest looking mobile phone I've ever seen. Gun metal grey is defo the best. I'm thinking of getting one from Three tomorrow on PAYG. 459!

but I have an M7 and its in perfect condition and will have Sense 6 soon making almost the same as the M8. Is it really worth spending the money???
