Display's color accuracy is better on the M8.
No faint vertical lines visible in landscape view on the M8.
Speakers are louder and clearer on the M8.
Orange notification LED appears to be dimmer than on the M7, but the green LED is brighter.
Before I purchased the M8, I wasn't sure I wanted to spend the cash for the upgrade. But I'm glad I did it. I really feel HTC has made good improvements on an already great phone.
Have you done the same? What are your thoughts?
