Any suggestions before I buy mine. Anyone else coming from nexus 5? Last HTC phone was the my touch 4g and the g1. Lol.

I came from a nexus 5. Right away the signal is dramatically better, and the wifi is the best I have ever seen in a phone. I have had htc one m7, galaxy s4, and nexus 5 before this. Nexus 5 was great, but the roms all look the same. CM based this and that. At lease with this I can flash sense or gpe rom if I start to miss my nexus. Battery is about 50% better than nexus. Build quality is no comparison. Sound no comparison. Speed is about the same. Camera on nexus is sharper, but the edit tab on m8 is sooo sick with the ufocus and 3d moving. Really cool, it makes my wife who is a die hard iPhone girl start to question her phone. M8 is about 1/4 inch taller than nexus but feels good in my hand but I can really notice that 1/4 inch when I put it in my back pocket which is where I always keep my phones. Im used to it now, but just pointing it out. I love the always live digitizer so I can swipe to wake etc without battery drain like the nexus 5 kernels. The only thing I kind of miss is the wireless charging. If you are a phone junky like me, it is a great upgrade. I sold my nexus 5 16 gig with wireless charger on craigslist for $370.
I have both a Nexus 5 and the M8 and I actually like the Nexus better. It is smaller so it is easier to handle. I don't have huge hands. The M8 is pretty though. I will use the M8 as my back up for a while.
Many usersdon’t see any particular reason to change out the stock firmware … more
