It's because if one camera breaks, the other one is there as a backup.

Fair question. The truth is, I have read all the reviews, experimented with the dual camera several times and used all of its functions...but still, I don't see the point of it (# desperate gimmick) 😉

Otherwise, the m8 is an outstanding phone

The S5 can achieve the depth of field effect without having dual cameras. So I'm not sure why having a dedicated second camera makes a difference.

It's not a fair question, it's a pointless question. I mean... you can say that the dual camera is ineffectual and unnecessary, but just asking why it's there.... that's five seconds of Googling and just trolling.
Running an AT&T HTC M8 with SinLess GPE ROM. Unlocked, S-Off, of course.

After effects on imaging is the main feature but the Gold is in the fact you can shoot image after image and edit them all later. The focusing and imaging for such effects on Samsung and google camera requires it take 2 separate images - you have to Hold still and wait. Risk of blur, background movement etc where HTC just snap snap snap away.

And so it was
Cant we all just get along?!?
