Default Best phone I have owned.

Just came from the Nexus 5 (and I loved it too... just have wanted something that felt solid, for years).

I love this phone... have had it for ~3 hours.

Good day

Says the guy using a Note 3! Ha!

I agree. I'm very impressed with this phone overall. Even the photo quality is much better than I expected and is seriously being downplayed in all the reviews. I wish we had r/w access to the file system, but I can accomplish most of what I need to with an unlocked bootloader and root, so I'm content.

Yeah its a kickass phone. Much more premium than my n5. Also much better designed than the s5 or note 3.

Agreed. Coming from the m7 I knew what I was getting into. They improved on the great device from last year.

Just spent my first full day with the device and I am blown away. The hardware is excellent. Feels great in my hand without a case (case coming soon though lol) battery life is excellent. At 4% battery right now writing this post and I've had 3 hrs 20 minutes of screen time in addition to using play music for 1 hour at the gym, YouTube videos, Web browsing, texting and the works and the battery is clutch. Screen is miles better than the AMOLED on the s4 I just switched from. Shame on me for switching away from HTC for my last phone. Very pleased.

Oh and Sense 6 has made huge leaps from sense 4 the last time I owned HTC. Software is well done, buttery smooth, and has great features that I have always wanted added to sense.

Default M8

I ordered mine yesterday AT&T is telling me that I should be getting it on the 3rd. I am also coming from Nexus 5. I have had a lot of HTC phones like the Aria, Inspire, the Vivid, and the ONE X. I left Vivid and went to the S2 skyrocket cause there was something about the Vivid that I cant remember that I didn't like, then when the One X came out I had it for a little bit and I didn't like the direction they were going so I went to the S3. I have had a lot of phones in the last 5 years so I hope HTC don't let me down with this ONE. I'm gonna keep ahold of my Nexus 5 tho..
